About the Property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath home on inland Duck Lake. Your private 100 foot of beach.

Wonderful home to take unforgettable family vacations. We sleep 6 adults comfortably, 2 in private bedrooms with queen beds and a third couple can take the new hide-a-bed in the living room. Four children can sleep in the bunk room, the twin bunks are restricted to a 120 lbs weight limit. Bring your ski boat or kayak, swim, fish or use the 4 person paddle boat to explore the lake. With 100 ft of shoreline, there is plenty of room to spread out and play yard games or have a campfire. Relax on the deck overlooking the lake after you have used the new grill to cook your perfect meal.

We are having a great spring/summer on Duck Lake now that the weather has finally warmed up! Water temperatures in the 70's and it looks like it will be just as nice thru the end of the season. September is also a great month for fishing and other outdoor activities. On the last Sunday of the month thru September is Michigan's largest Antique show with over 400 exhibitors just 15 minutes away.Visit the new Tanger outlet mall in Byron Center just 39 miles away. For you gamblers, Gun Lake Casino is just 34 minutes away. After playing or fishing all day rest easy on all new beds.


Avoid temperature variations and rip currents of large lakes, Duck Lake is swim able all summer long.

Duck Lake is a 123-acre natural lake. Maximum depth is 39 feet. Common Fish in the lake are Bluegill, Large-mouth Bass, Sunfish and Yellow Perch.

We see Ducks, Geese, Mute Swans, Herons, Cranes and Loons to name a few. Sit on deck and watch the boats on lake or walk down the lawn and sit on the shore.

The house was completely remodeled/upgraded in 2015. 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, great Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen Washer & Dryer. Home has new windows and has been completely painted inside and out. Deck has been upgraded for your viewing pleasure.

Inland Lakes are typically warmer than Lake Michigan. Swim all day in Duck Lake but if you want to take in the beaches in South Haven, MI, it is only 22 miles away.

Our home is in country. Swim to the raft, and float in Lake, have a bonfire, play volleyball, bring your kayak, canoe or small boat. Play all day then relax and grill your dinner or visit one of the fine restaurants in the area.

Duck Lake, an inland lake in Michigan. Sand has been added to the shore. A few cattails, waterlilies. Swim-able shoreline with natural vegetation & raft. In 2014 a Bald Eagle was a frequent visitor to the Lake and he has returned for the 2015 season.

Bring your fishing gear as Duck Lake is great fishing lake. Great view from deck if you just want to sit and watch the birds. Run down the hill and jump in the lake and swim all day. Quiet time on the lake begins at 11:00 pm.

Like to golf? Cheshire Hills Golf Course offers 27 holes of challenging golf with typically at least 9 holes open to walk up golfers. If you get the urge, go, it's less than a mile away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live next door and have enjoyed the lake for years. We enjoy bird watching and love to see the Bald Eagle that came in 2014/5 and is here this year. We grab a float and lounge in the lake on hot days. We worked in South Haven for years and recently bought this home to update and share this beautiful location.

Why the Owner Chose Gobles, MI, USA:
The view is beautiful. There are trees for shade or enjoy the sun. The home is at the top of the hill and beach is just steps away. Home is located at SW end of Duck Lake with view of homes across lake. There are approximately 80 part-time homes on Duck Lake. Duck Lake's water temperature is generally warmer than Lake Michigan and the wind will not cause a dangerous surf.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have a Dock for a small boat. Pre-approval required to bring a boat. We have a 7 person Pontoon boat available for additional fee pending approval and availability.
