About Shane Gadbaw

My name is Shane and I live on the lake with my wife and 3 kids. The rental is our guest house that we rent by the night, weekend, week or month. We live in the house next door year round.

Shane Gadbaw purchased this house in 2008

Why Shane Gadbaw chose Howell

You will fall in love with Crooked Lake which has the right balance of a natural setting and lake fun for the family. Your kids will spend most of the vacation on the beach, swimming, fishing, catching frogs or watching blue herons and hawks. Golfers will find several great courses nearby. Downtown Brighton with over 30 restaurants and great shopping is less than 10 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

The sunsets and sunrises will make your day and night.

Charming place on the lake

This home was the perfect spot for my children and me to take a long weekend trip. Shane was very accommodating and was easily accessible when I had questions. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend it to others.

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

A really nice home on Crooked Lake between Brighton and Howell, MI. Very well stocked kitchen; everything you need (except food!) A small beach, but it's great for little kids with enough sand and sandy bottom out about 10'. After that it gets weedy. Lots of beach toys for the kids. Also a pedal boat and 4 kayaks for the adults and a variety of life jackets. A nice convenience store down the street that makes great sandwiches, and a nice restaurant less than a mile away. Highly recommend.
