The property features 3 secluded cottages (1 main cottage and 2 mini-cabins) on three-acres of lake front property, with over 700 feet of prime fishing shore line on Sanford Lake. The yard features a fire pit, and most yard sports. Relax on the hammock or take a nature hike down a wooded trail. Our property is surrounded by 40 acres of wooded state land. Those 40 acres are adjacent to thousands of acres of wooded state land with trails throughout. We also have a 4-6 person hot tub available for use at an additional fee. The property also has a dock for a Boat, Pontoon, or a Jet Ski.

The main cottage is 1,800 sf with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms are located in the third level loft, with 2 bedrooms featuring 1 king size bed each, and a third room with 2 queen size beds, sleeping a total of 8 people comfortably. The second floor of the main cottage includes a full kitchen & dining area, living room with couches, a 60” TV, DVD player & Wii gaming system, full bathroom, and laundry. The second floor also features multiple outdoor decks and stairs connecting to the hot tub area and other various & unique areas. Main cottage bottom floor (walk out basement style) features a recreation room with billiards table, electric dart game, circuit gym, elliptical/stair master machine, and 1 full bathroom.


There are 2 “mini cabins” on the property that are available to rent at an additional price for larger groups: Mini Cabin #1 is approximately 20 feet from the main cottage. Mini Cabin #2 is approximately 100 feet from the main cottage and built close to the water. Both Mini Cabins comfortably sleep 3-4 people. Each Mini Cabin is about 240 sf and feature:
• A fridge, full-size futon, recliner, and coffee table on the 1st level
• A queen bed in the loft area

Sanford Lake is perfect for Bass, Northern Pike, Muskie, Walleye, Bluegill, and Perch fishing. There is boat launch a short distance from our property, and at the south end of the lake, there is a large public beach with a great spray park for children. Pontoon, kayak, & canoe rentals are all available nearby.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I am a business owner and entrepreneur who formerly served in the US Marine Corps. I live full-time within 5 miles from this property. I grew up having a family cottage that was the setting for many cherished memories and weekend getaways. I built this cottage so my family, friends, and others could also enjoy a quality family setting to make their own cherished memories.

Why the Owner Chose Sanford, MI, USA:
This unique property is centrally located in the state. There are to many family fun adventures to list in this area. I designed and built this retreat for family fun. I am keeping the price point low so that it can be enjoyed by as many family-fun seekers as possible.
