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.

Notes:

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.

There is a great little country store just down the street with 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.

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! Rockford is 25 minutes away and has a great farmers market Sat. mornings and fun shops and boutiques.

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Cedar Springs, MI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Recreational Vehicle:
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.
