About Bill

I purchased this property to enjoy great memories with my family and friends! I live in the south side of Chicago and have been coming up to Sister Lakes my whole life. It was always a dream of mine to own property on one of the many sister lakes. I finally was able to make it happen after many years. I'm a Firefighter/EMT in the south suburbs of Chicago. I love staying in Sister Lakes and hope you will enjoy Magician Lake as much as I do!

Bill purchased this house in 2011

Why Bill chose Dowagiac

After countless hours of searching for the most perfect place, we found this beautiful house sitting on the best side of Magician Lake. We wanted to be on Magician Lake because it is the largest of the Sister Lakes, and is a very clean lake. It is just over 500 acres, and is a spring fed lake. The water is crystal clear and has great fishing! It is also an all sports lake, so you can boat, tube, ski, wakeboard, ect. Right out front the water is 1-3 feet deep with a sandy bottom, with no seaweed! It is the perfect place for multiple families to get together and enjoy a wonderful vacation!!

What makes this house unique

I can accommodate up to 20 guests. Parking for 10 cars. Master bedroom has a King size bed, bedroom 2 an 3 have a queen size bed, bedroom 4 has 2 bunk beds with full size mattress on the bottom and twin on top also bedroom 4 has a twin bed. Bedroom 5 has 2 twin beds. Dining table can accommodate 8 also in the kitchen the island can fit another 5 people to eat if needed. 2 full size refrigerators in the home 1 in kitchen and 1 in walk out basement by the wet bar. I provide the propane for the weber grill. Also I supply all the wood for the fire pit which is lakeside. Home has been recently updated with new carpet, new paint, new vinyl siding, new water well with filter, stainless steel appliances. Patio furniture and picnic table on upper and lower deck. The biggest benefit for families with kids is that our side of the Lake is very shallow so it's great for the kids to play in the water.

Awesome rental home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Bill's house on Magician Lake was absolutely amazing. We had 18 people fit comfortably in the house. There is tons of space, the kitchen bar is awesome, and the huge upstairs and downstairs decks were perfect for gatherings. We were able to fit 10 cars comfortably. I was worried the house wouldn't fit everyone in my group, but it exceeded my expectations.

Bill was also super accommodating and even came by on his pontoon boat and gave us a ride around the lake. We had everything we needed in terms of utensils and house accessories. Super comfy beds and plenty of space for air mattresses as well. I will definitely be staying at this rental again!

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to give this property a big "thumbs up"! Two families, ten adults fit quite nicely. Clean, well kept up. Plenty of space to gather or spread out. Beautiful lakefront. We rented the boat and enjoyed it immensely. The lake is clean, nice sized, and has a party island. We definitely will be back next year. With the very shallow beach area immediately in front we are considering an end of the summer trip with the grandkids. Owner was very helpful and was just a phone call away.
