This is the place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, put your feet up, relax and reconnect with family, friends and nature.
This new listing in the summer of 2016 is just North of Jackson, Michigan. It is a newly renovated, fully equipped and completely furnished year round cottage. It is a 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom country cottage located on our family farm with a private 10 acre lake just a short walk away. Malay Lake is surrounded by trees and is a tranquil nature lover’s lake with a lakeside campfire pit. Malay Lake is a natural lake and It doesn’t have a sandy beach or a firm lake bottom. It does have a grass beach (see photos) where you can enjoy the view or watch the kids swimming from the swim platform, fishing or you can toast marshmallows and hot dogs in the lakeside fire pit while you relax in the adirondack chairs. We drive the pontoon to the middle of the lake and swim off from the diving platform anchored there. There is a complementary row boat , a small bass boat, a canoe and a basic pontoon to explore the lake. It’s a 10 minute short walk from the cottage or if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle or a pick up truck, you can drive down the farm lane. We also have a golf cart you can rent.
For a larger lake experience: Pleasant Lake’s public county park is 2 miles away where there is a public swimming beach.
