The lakes include private gated beach areas with roped off sandy bottom swimming areas, swing sets, picnic tables and/or a pavilion, restrooms and a boat launch.

About Michael Miller

We are downstaters that built our "Home Away From Home" in 1997, and have thoroughly ENJOYED the entire Sugar Springs experience along the banks of Lake Lancelot.

What makes this house unique

Our quaint home sits along side a beautiful and quiet community park, with a boat launch, charcoal grills, small beachfront, kiddie swings and a private bathhouse. This beautiful park/beach area is simply an "extension" of my lot separated by a small wooden fence with personal and private walk through access to the park/beach.

Loved the location, very spacious 🙌🏼

  • 5 of 5

Such a relaxing stay at Miller Island! The owner Mike was very personable and very easily reached! The property is beautiful! We had 8 adults and 2 children and would’ve had plenty more room for more. The views of the lake in the day and the stars in the sky at night were breathtaking me and my friend saw a shooting star which was pretty amazing! Will definitely think about renting next year for another weekend retreat!

It was a perfect 3 night stay! Exceeded all our expectations.

The house is even better than described. There is lots of room and beds for everyone. The lake views are beautiful and the grandkids enjoyed all the yard and water toys. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need- even a crockpot. We highly recommend this home.

The property was beautiful. A lot of room in the backyard to do various activities with my family.

  • 5 of 5

Miller island was exactly what we were looking for. The property was very spacious and well cared for. My husband and godson went out on the dock every morning to fish. It was great having your own private dock to fish and enjoy the water. The owner allowed us to use his kayak which was awesome. There was enough room in the upstairs of the house to sleep 6 adults and 2 children comfortably. We didn’t need to use the finish basement for sleeping. The Miller property was very comfortable and cozy. My family was looking for a place like this to bond and reconnect and we were able to do that with the Miller house. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a beautiful spacious house on a lake.

Owner's Response: Dollie, Thank you for the wonderful review... I'm delighted to hear that you're family enjoyed your stay at "Miller Island"... It is truly heartwarming to know that other nice families can respectfully enjoy our house of 22 years as much as we have. I would also like to publically thank you and the rest of your guests for the wonderful "frog birdhouse" memento that we will add to our "Miller Island" birdhouse collection... We are truly touched by your kind, and very unexpected gesture. THANKS!!! You and your family were wonderful guests!!! Enjoy the rest of your summer! mike

Fantastic Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this cottage! It accommodated our entire family of 8 (grandparent, parents, & kids -- plus a dog), and frankly we had room for more. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and well equipped. We also appreciated the central air when the weather was extremely hot and humid.

The lake shore and dock area is very pleasant with both sunny and shady areas. The kids had a great time playing and swimming there and never even wanted to go to the beach next door. The lake was perfect for kayaking. We also caught some good-sized fish directly from the dock! The yard also allowed plenty of room for the kids to play.

Mike was very accommodating and ready to be of assistance to us if needed; however, we did not encounter any problems or have any concerns during our stay. We really hope to have the opportunity to return to this cottage again in the future. It was ideal for our family!
