New to the rental market, Gorgeous, Updated, Spectacular Lake frontage and views. This amazing home boasts 1400 sq. feet of pure luxury spread over 2 stories. 2 beautiful bedrooms and 2.5 spacious bathrooms. It is located on the crystal clear shoreline of Arbutus Lake. This property is close to everything, yet pure serenity makes this rental your very own piece of heaven. With the plush furnishing and all of the comforts of home, we know you will have the vacation of a lifetime. With over 250 feet of private direct water frontage and beach, a fire pit and a dock, all you need to bring is your own beach towels, water toys and a boat and you'll be set.

A fully stocked kitchen with a gas stove, full size side by side refrigerator, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, garbage disposal and coffee pot with full service for 6. The laundry room has a full size washer and dryer, ironing board and iron with a full size wash sink and commode. Basic cable is provided so you can catch the local weather if desired. Bring your movies or choose from the selection we have on hand for the VHS and DVD players. Cell phone service is great in the area and will allow you to communicate with those you need to on your vacation with your personal phone. This cottage provides you with sheets, bath towels and your starter paper products. A huge pantry for all of your things, tons of cabinet space and HUGE closets in both bedrooms will allow you to keep your living space uncluttered and relaxing during your stay.


Large Windows make up the front of this home both upstairs and downstairs, allowing you full view of the gorgeous lake below. Upstairs bosts both of your bedrooms (Both Queens, 1 new in 2014 and one new for 2015) and 1.5 baths. Also upstairs is your kitchen, dining room, laundry room & spacious living room. Downstairs is a second living room, game room, a full bed and a full bath.
**** Newly remodeled in 2015 with granite counter tops in kitchen, porcelain tile upstairs and a new leather sectional couch and recliner upstairs!

This property is not handicap accessible due to the large amount of steps to get from the parking area to the house (6) and to get from the upstairs to the downstairs (12) and finally the house to the lake (20).

Outside we have a gas grill, tables and chairs, a dock for you to bring your own beach towels, boat and water toys.

This property has been decorated with love and is truly upscale living at your fingertips. This property will only sleep 6 people. It is 100% non smoking and absolutely NO pets are allowed. No large groups or parties are allowed.

As our heading states this truly is. Paradise Found. and it's awaiting you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1944

About the owner: This home has been passed down through our family for going on 70 years. There are a lot of memories and we hope the lucky few who get to rent it each year will treasure it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Forest Lakes, East Bay Township, MI, USA:
You will not find a view more spectacular, a home more comfortable, nor an atmosphere more worth while. This is the most beautiful, most relaxing place our entire family knows. Love and peace will surround you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property has been in our family for nearly 70 years. The original cottage was tore down and replaced by this new one in 1994. It truly is the home that love built. We hope you can feel the love in every detail and treat it as you would your home.
