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 Southeast

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.

Lake Effect

  • 4 of 5

Brought family in from across the US to attend a larger family reunion and spend quality time with the more immediate family. This property was an ideal location with outside seating for all and views of the lake. The kayaks and paddle boat were welcome "accessories" for those who did not wander off to one of the many golf courses in the area. We mentioned a couple minor maintenance issues that did not interfere with the week's enjoyment. Shane was very accommodating during the week.

The Newman's

  • 5 of 5

We were in the process of having a new home built locally and the option of staying at the property worked out great for us and our dog. We stayed 40 days, the home was clean, well furnished, comfortable and we loved the lake views. The owner was very accommodating. We would stay again.
