About the Property

5 Bedroom, 4 Baths, 6000+ Sq Ft Home On 10 Acres. Indoor Pool And Private Lake

Great winter rates with new 2 night minimum for January to mid May stays. Weekly specials too. Check us out, make some memories. This home is a family, group, and kid friendly home however NO PROM GROUPS or high school groups allowed. It is in a rural area and very private. The private lake is suitable for fishing (bass, bluegills and catfish) but don't expect large catches or large fish. Other lake uses include kayaking and paddle boating, also ice skating if the lake freezes in the winter. We are under an hour drive from Lake Michigan for all of your big water needs. There is a basketball hoop in cemented parking area for all ages. Other outdoor amenities include 2 decks looking out over the lake. The lower deck has a large propane grill for outdoor cooking. This 2 level deck has a table with umbrella and chairs. Numerous other lounge chairs are also available for use on the deck and pool. The upper deck off the den and master bedroom has additional dinning and seating areas. The house is surrounded by woods with an abundance of wildlife such as deer, turkey, water fowl and birds.
The home has a Master Bedroom with Bath (king size bed), Guest Bedroom (king size bed), Living Room, Den/with big screen TV, Formal Dinning Room, Kitchen with Breakfast Room and a Bath on the main level. There is also a heated 3 car garage attached to the house. On the lower level there are 3 Bedrooms. Two bedrooms (1 double bed the other has 2 twin beds and 2 doubles) are connecting by a Jack and Jill bath with a large walk-in closet. The 3rd bedroom on lower level (queen bed) is across from the 4th bathroom. The lower level has a Family/TV room with a 3-D TV. This room also has a game table with chairs. On this level there is also a Laundry/Office area, mechanical room and the Arizona Room which has 2 queen hide-a-beds, a pool table with ping pong top and is a good place for children to play. From the Arizona Room you have access to the Indoor Pool. This room has a keypad entry system for safety reasons. The Pool has access to the lower deck. All rooms in the house are large which leaves room to bring extra blow up beds.
There is satellite TV, DVD/blueray player, a few DVD's . One TV is 3-D so bring glasses (there are a few in the house) and 3D movies is you wish. Upstairs in the Living Room there is a small printer that can be used. As we are surrounded by trees cell phones are not always reliable. Verizon does well but sometimes you need to be close to windows.
Kitchen is stocked with basic cooking needs. This is a large people friendly kitchen so several people can work at the same time. There is a crock pot, griddle, waffle maker, microwave, toaster, vegetable steamer, hand mixer, ice crusher, food chopper, coffee bean grinder and coffee pot. Plates, bowls, cups, glassware and silverware for 24.
The size of the home allows for many people to be together or alone. With the Den, Living Room, Family Room and Arizona Room there is room for the TV watchers and non watchers to co-exist. Sound does not travel from room to room and by closing doors almost any room can be a place to relax.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We are the Soisson's. We have 10 children. Our youngest three are still at home. We love to relax at our home, play golf, and watch our children participate in numerous extra curricular activities.

Why the Owner Chose Gobles, MI, USA:
This gorgeous property came to our attention at a time when we wanted to get out of the city life we were experiencing. We were raising seven children and this seemed the perfect backdrop for that to happen. The woods have a walking path, the lake, although privately shared by two owners, is large enough to use our pontoon boat yet small enough we could allow our children to swim in the waters and use kayaks. The indoor pool allowed for swimming even in the Michigan winters. The property provides enough hill we are able to use the back driveway for a sledding hill. There are deer, turkey, and other wild animals here to enjoy as well. It was a perfect fit.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property allows visitors to stop and relax. The quality workmanship of the home allows you to relax undisturbed even as the kids are downstairs playing hard you can sit and have a cup of coffee on the deck or look out the windows while nature provides squirrels, turkey, deer, and/or birds for your enjoyment. You are within 15 minutes of two ski resorts for winter sports enthusiasts, 30-45 minutes from Lake Michigan, and 20-30 minutes from two malls if you want to adventure out. This property includes the ability to entertain without going anywhere. The indoor pool, larger hills for sledding in the winter, and lake for summer fun provides hours of enjoyable entertainment without taking the car out of the three car garage!
