Overview

About the property

On your own private piece of lake front on a spring fed, private lake.

For a beautiful "glamping" experience, this 18 foot RV is perfect for one or two people looking to unplug & immerse themselves in the beauty & peace of nature. It's on a private peninsula overlooking the lake with full lake access. Full bath, fridge, stove, sheets, towels, dishes, paddle & row boat, fire pit with some firewood. Fully heated. If you need, ice, drinks, bait, tackle or gas Tow's Country Store is 2 miles away. Free Wifi is just around the corner at the Spencer Township Library. For groceries and restaurants Greenville, MI 6.5 miles away. Come to Art Prize 2016 in Grand Rapids from September 21 to October 9. Grand Rapids is 40 minutes away! Come home to peace and quiet, have an outdoor fire and then head out into the city again. Lake Michigan is also on 50 minutes away.

It's 3 - 4 hours from Chicago, 2 hours from Lansing and 50 minutes from the Grand Rapids airport.

Ideal for 'glamping'. Rented only from April - October, this 18 foot RV is in a secluded space with a large meditation garden on one side and stairs down to the lake on the other. I live on the lake and there are only two other families on this lake. We have all been coming here since we were kids so it holds a special place in our hearts and we love the privacy and the beauty of this secluded lake. There are no gas motors and the lake is very clean with many springs keeping it that way.

It's on a peninsula surrounded by popular trees and the breezes always blow off from the small lake. This lake has no motors on it and is spring fed. It is connected to a larger lake by a channel. The RV has a full bath, fridge, stove, oven, coffee maker, sheets, towels, pots, pans, dishes. It has two fold out comfortable couches that pull out and convert easily into beds - one double and one single. I can make them up ahead of time so that they are ready for you when you get here if you like.

Ideal for couples, girlfriends, or a single person looking to unplug from it all and become one with nature. It is teaming with wildlife and is ideal for birding.

I have been teaching contemplative walking meditations, offering life transition ceremonies and retreats here in this safe, sacred space for three decades. The restorative energy here is amazing. Many say they feel it as soon as they drive in the driveway!

Imagine floating in the small, quiet lake that mirrors the clouds and natural shoreline of the trees. Around you fish are jumping, turtles sunning, birds fishing, dragonflies galore! So bring something to float on or ask me for a water lounge.

It's 35 minutes away from Grand Rapids which is a fun city to explore and for ArtPrize enthusiasts. Here is a short video I made to show the area around the RV. It's on vimeo. Just go to the web site and put in the number 208886185

About Daina (Dinah) Puodziunas

My mother found this property and lake in the mid 60's.I used to stay here in the summers as a child with my grandparents in their RV. I raised my daughters here and am passing it on to my grand children. There are only two other families on the lake and they have been coming here as children as well!! So it's special to us and we love it.

Daina (Dinah) Puodziunas purchased this recreational vehicle in 1980

Why Daina (Dinah) Puodziunas chose Michigan

Great fishing, lots of wildlife, no gas motors so it's a clean, spring fed lake. It's beautiful, relaxing, and rejuvenating. It is very private. You have your own meditation garden and views of nature from every window with no other buildings or people around.This property is located 40 minutes to downtown Grand Rapids, 50 minutes to Lake Michigan, close enough for folks from Chicago, Lansing, Ann Arbor, or Detroit to find it great for a weekend get away.

What makes this recreational vehicle unique

It's only 40 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids and 15 minutes from great restaurants, quaint shops and boutiques in Rockford. You can rent canoes in Rockford to go down the river if you want or rent bicycles to do down the White Pine Trail. PJ Hoffmaster - my favorite Lake Michigan beach is only 50 minutes door to door!! Come visit Art Prize in downtown Grand Rapids from Sept. 21 to Oct. 9. Come home, have an outdoor fire, pour a drink and relax to the sounds of nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was wonderful to have Laura and her friend stay in the RV at Enchanted Lake. They brought their own kayaks and fishing poles and were ready to fish from the time they arrived! The communication with them was easy. They took great care of the place and left it in great condition. Everything was in its place. I felt they respected the place in all ways and really appreciated all the lake had to offer. I would recommend Laura to anyone as a fantastic guest.

Beautiful relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little trip for my girlfriend and I. We enjoy it so much that we have gone twice! Very relaxing and peaceful. If you love nature, you'll love this place. Beautiful quiet lake and the RV is situated perfectly if the Sumer heat is too much to bare with old mature trees offering a canopy. Daina was a great host! I definitely recommend this property and will continue to visit.

A Simple Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for anyone looking to get away from all the noise of every day life, catch their breath, and reconnect with themselves and the universe. Essentially a very nice campsite. Was outside most of the time but camper served it's purpose of a cozy, comfortable sleeping quarters just fine. Didn't use any of the appliances, cooked everything over the fire embers I had constantly burning the 2.5 days I stayed there, watching the leaves fall as the moon chased the sun around. The friendly host Dinah made sure I had everything I needed. The bonus paths, stone statues, landscaping, and layout of the site create a more transcendent, meditative atmosphere. Didn't bring the fishing gear but with all of the evening splashing I heard I will be sure to next time. If you like what you see in the pictures, there is no catch here...it's that and more. Enjoy!

Exactly as represented... a trailer in the woods! We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

I recently had a weekend girlfriend's getaway at this little trailer in the woods. It was exactly as it is represented. We were warm and comfortable despite a night of rain. The lake is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed using the paddle boat to take a tour of fall colors and a blue heron. The kitchen is small but had everything we needed. If you drink a lot of coffee you might want to bring a full size coffee maker. Peaceful wooded property gave us a chance to relax and rest.

Enchanted Acres

  • 5 of 5

The Enchanted Acres are just as described and as the photos show. It is a totally natural setting, with turkeys walking through the property and squirrels and chipmunks running everywhere. I even saw a hawk circling overhead. I did not see another person the whole weekend.

The trailer is as cute as it could be. And Dinah has thought of everything to make your stay more comfortable. Of course the kitchen is stocked with pots and pans and dishes, there are extra blankets and she has even left sample sizes of common toiletries in the bathroom for your use!

There was a cool breeze all weekend, and she left a fan which I did not need. The cool air off the lake was wonderful and at night I could hear the owls. I completely enjoyed my stay and would rent again when in the area. Thanks Dinah!

Peaceful bliss

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away, need peace and solitude, look no further. This is where you want to stay. The camper has all of the comforts of home while surrounded by quiet nature. The only sound we heard we're of birds during the day and owls at night while sitting around the fire. This is a perfect place to go for two people looking to reconnect with nature and each other. If you want to explore, there are a couple of cute little towns close by where you can do some antiquing and have a meal. I would stay here again the next time we need to get away from the hustle and bustle or work and the city.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kim! I love that you visited the 2 local breweries in Cedar Springs and explored around the area. Rockford has canoe rentals and will pick you up to take you back to your car. There are also bicycle rentals there to ride the White Pine Trail which is an amazing trail! Grand Rapids is only 40 minutes downtown door to door! I am so happy you liked your stay so much! ~ Daina

Grand Rapids is only 35 minutes away to downtown and it has lots to do if you want to drive down for the day or the evening for a wonderful dinner.

20 minutes south on Northland Drive from M57 is Rockford. It's charming! Lots of fun, cool shops, boutiques and some great restaurants, the dam runs through the town with a great little park. There is an award winning farmer's market there on Saturday mornings too.

You can also rent canoes and kayaks to take down the river that runs through Rockford. The White Pine Trail runs through Rockford. Grand Rapids is only 35 minutes away as well

If you like to bike you can bring your bike to Greenville and take the White Pine Trail as far as you feel like riding!

Attend ArtPrize in Grand Rapids if you want from Sept. 24 - Oct. 12. It's an amazing experience which you can learn about here: http://www.Artprize.org

There is a great little country store just down Podunk(left) till the end, left on 18 mile rd. They have excellent pizza, Amish cheese, and stuff you may have forgotten to bring. There is a Meijer store with decent organic veggies and everything you would need 15 minutes away in Greenville. There is an Applebees, a Chinese restaurant, Wallmart, and more.

I'm sorry, but there are no pets or children allowed for a number of reasons. I also need 48 hours notice of any cancellation. The RV does NOT have air conditioning, but it is in a shady location and the breezes blow up from the lake to the camper. It DOES have a very good infra red heater for the colder months.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
