About the property

Lakefront 4 bedroom/3 baths in the woods, sleeps 8

Log home built in 1992. The house on 1.12 acres of wooded property and is all on one floor. The bedrooms are located in 3 'wings' around the living/dining and kitchen areas. This allows for 'together' time while also providing the ability to have some private or quiet time as needed. There's a large stone wood-burning fireplace in the large room and a large back deck with charcoal-burning grill available. The hot tub access is from the deck.

N.B. The hot tub is shut down during the winter.

****NOTE: There is a bank transaction fee for any amount charged (about 3% of the amount charged). I will accept payment by check directly to me if you choose to avoid this additional charge.

About Judy Jacobson

I built the house in 1992 when we got tired of looking for a place near Interlochen Arts Academy/Camp that my nieces attended. I'm an alum myself and attend the Adult Choir Camp each year. The next generation of campers are still too young to attend!

Why Judy Jacobson chose Northwest

The house's lay-out affords a great combination of together-ness area and private bedroom spaces. There can be meals, games or TV going on in the big room, and yet a private nap/work/discussion happening in private...and unless it's summer with the windows open, that privacy remains.

There is a dock at the lakefront and public access launch site just across the lake as well. We have seen people out fishing - what they are catching I don't know, but apparently they do catch something! We've also seen people on waterskis and personal watercraft using the lake.

A Lovely & Comfortable, Family Gathering Home

  • 5 of 5

Judy's family home was a comfortable & lovely home for all of our family to gather & have a wonderful summer week vacation. Family up there came to visit & hang out & we had plenty of room to entertain. The shallow lake, sandy beach & dock were perfect for our 4 & 2-year-old grandchildren & all of the adults as well : )

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Judy's Place is our favorite northern Michigan spot. We love the quiet lake view, the trees, and how we always feel at home. Our pups especially love the beach! Even though we are always sad to leave, we are comforted by the fact that we will return to Judy's Place in a season or two. We are already planning our next stay!

weekend stay for a wedding

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay at this lovely fully ready clean spacious home. The lake was such a treat to view and walk down to the small beach area and just enjoy God's creation. Absolutely recommend to anyone and if ever i need it for a group of 8 it is very reasonable and i sure would return.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for grandparents, parents and teenage kids. Clean, comfortable, separate spaces for all and this house was stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen! Beautiful lake view from the private, wooded home and hot tub and awesome sandy beach and firepit. We rented kayaks to enjoy this beautiful, quiet lake. Pictures don't do this justice - very large spaces and great for nature lovers! Will definitely be back!
