About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 6-8

Lake Columbia is a PRIVATE all-sports lake about 1.5 hrs from Detroit and 1 hr or less from Ann Arbor and Lansing.
Boat rental is not available and there is no public launch site, but we do have a canoe for your enjoyment.
The house is about 1800 square feet featuring 8 door walls that provide nice views of the main lake. It has an open layout with newer refrigerator and quiet dishwasher with a rather unique vaulted ceiling in the connected kitchen / living room. We generally get a nice breeze but in those instances when there is no breeze or it's very hot the house does have central air and fans in each room.

The house itself is only about 25 feet from the shore and the lake floor has a fairly gradual slope.

There is a deck that wraps around the house on the main level and the basement has a walkout onto a cement patio for those who want more shade yet still be close to the water. Often times the kids play ping pong, ladder ball, video games at the lower level while the adults soak up the views (and their favorite beverage) from the main level.

Picturesque sunsets, main lake views (not on canal), and country feeling yet grocery stores, restaurants and 2 golf courses are nearby.

The 4th of July fireworks are shot off directly in front of the house - is a pretty cool sight and you'll have front row seats!!!

This house is special to us. Please treat it and our neighbors as you would your own.

About 5-6 people can sleep in the beds and a few more can sleep on the couch or cots that we've provided. We don't want more than 9-10 people staying here out of respect to our neighbors.

We have a 50' tv with basic cable and NO WIFI (who needs it as you're at the lake trying to get away)!! The house is furnished with all of the basic necessities.

Enjoy it and never forget that the water should always be respected.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We purchased our lake house about 11 years ago and absolutely love it. We won't be able to use it much for the next several years and decided to rent it to others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is on a culdesac and a very small nature park (just some land with a picnic table next to the water) is about 30 yards away from house for those who want to step away for more tranquility. Please stay to the left of the wooden fence as the land between the 2 wooden fences is private property.
