What makes this house unique

We had thought about buying lake property to enjoy with friends and family. We looked at several properties and kept coming back to this one. We loved the architecture of the house, and our girls loved the property with so much room to run and play. It's magical for them every time we come here.

Great Winter Spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on the lake!!!

Jeni was more than helpful on directions and learning the surrounding area. We couldn't have picked a better cabin or person to deal with! The wood stove in the TV room was a great addition to the football games we watched!

Great time, Great location, Great person to deal with!!!!

Thanks Jeni!

Great Winter GetAway

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place. Everything was perfect. We had a great supply of wood for the stove which kept us very comfy.

We did some scouting of the area but mostly just spent our time in the kitchen/family rm area watching movies and talking.

We were a group of seniors so we really enjoyed the views and solitude peace and quiet.

We plan to return in 2017. All agreed.

This is a great place to go and just relax. You have everything you need to stay busy or completely relaxed as well. We had kids from 2-16 and everyone had a blast. The water is clear and the depth is at your knees all the way out to the dock, so less stress with safety of the little ones. The sandy area by the lake is a great place to spend hours of fun making sand castles and just digging your toes in the sand. Not to mention all the toys for play inside and out. There is a park down the street which was a lot of fun to walk to in the evenings or after naps. The kitchen/house was incredibly well stocked and we didn't want for anything. The setup of the house is great for multiple families. The location of the house is great to get off the grid, but we were able to go to multiple places for day trips that were only an hour away. The lighthouse at the end of the peninsula is very cool as well!! Jeni, the owner, was incredibly accomodating and easy to contact. We will be back!!!

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we brought our family to the Lakehouse and it does not disappoint. The house is even better than the pictures with plenty of space for a big family to gather. But let's be honest, we spent most of our time on the beach. They have everything you need to make it a relaxing and enjoyable vacation without ever leaving the property, but we also loved exploring the peninsula and the UP and checking out all the lighthouses. Jeni was wonderful to us and so easy to work with. Thanks for the memories!

Amazing!! Beautiful! Recommend the Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

It was amazing! The owners are terrific. When we arrived there was a basket of goodies for us and a Thank you for staying card. We had the time of our lives and plan to have our family vacation at the Lake House annually! The listing description was accurate and everything you could possibly need was in the house. The property was very well maintained and clean. I would definitely recommend The Lake House for a easy care free vacation. The Lake House is not to far from lots of attractions. Our family drove up to Musing to see the falls. I can't wait to go back next year. It has a wonderful beach and a clear view from every room. The porch is where we hung out the most. Loved it!! See you next year Jeni!!
