Property description

Watch the sun rise up the river from your riverside screened in porch. Then watch the sunset on your lake side deck/porch. What could be more ideal than a full day spent enjoying nature at its finest!

This is a special property. The land has been in our family since the turn of the century and was chosen for it's absolute perfect placement. And for the first time we want to share it with you!

We have just completed (May 2015) an entire home renovation including new bathrooms with Carrera Marble, completely new kitchen including all new appliances, new flooring, paint, etc... it is beautiful!

There is a canoe available for use - and the option to rent a pontoon. There is plenty of room for docking your own boat, renting one from a local marina and parking for cars and trailers.

While sipping your morning coffee you'll likely exchange pleasantries with the local fisherman as this property is known for housing large bass! During the day you and your families can enjoy rope-swinging into the river, boating or generally playing in the water.

This home is what you imagine when you dream of a summer vacation with your family!

This is a water sports fantasy! There is some of the best bass fishing in the area off your own dock! Canoe and paddle boat available for use. Bring your own boat or rent one from a local marina - plenty of place to dock. The University of Michigan Sailing Club is located on the Lake - perfect for the hobby sailor. Waterskiing, Tubing and even a rope swing are steps from your front door.

Zukey Lake Tavern is a local favorite bar/restaurant you can access by car or BOAT! Catching fish, turtles (and subsequent turtle races) are some of our favorite activities.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My brother, sister and I grew up in Lansing, MI - and would visit our grandparents cottage on the lake throughout our lives. We are all grown and living around the country now, but want to keep our ties to this area and the fond memories it brings us.

Why the Owner Chose Dexter, MI, USA:
This property has been in our family for over 100 years. It was originally bought by our great grandparents, handed down to our great aunt, then her daughter - whom we bought it from this year --- our parents spend the summer in the cottage next door.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The fabulous craftsman style home is special for so many reasons. It seamlessly blends the old and new - you'll see original beams from the first cottage as well as a brand new kitchen installed in 2015! The beauty of the property and it's location on the Huron River Chain of Lakes is really why it gets so much attention by the river traffic. Boaters are always in awe of the magnificent sight of seeing the lake as they drive down the river. Something once you experience once you will have in your bones forever.
