About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms Two king, one queen + rollaway bed 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)



on HomeAway/VRBO - Michigan

Both houses (183706 & 90352), are located on Cass Lake Bay,

the "no-wake" bay is great for paddle boarding. It is the bay close to the beach at the State Park, Dodge Park #4. When you are at the fishing pier the "no-wake" stops and Cass Lake opens up to 1280 acres, the largest, inland, all-sports lake in Southeastern Michigan. Cass Lake is located in Oakland County. The boat launch is also

located at the beginning of this bay and very convenient to the lake houses.

There are two sand bars at each end of the lake, one known for

partying and the other quieter near Marsh Bank Park.

Cass Lake is so large it changes cities four times: Keego Harbor, Orchard Lake, West Bloomfield and Waterford Township.

Marsh Bank Park is also on the lake with a children's play center. Enjoy free concerts during July in the summer.

Cruise the 1280 acre lake in your boat and see some of the unique homes and 40,000 plus sq. ft. mansions.

This tastefully appointed, light-filled home is situated on tranquil Cass Lake Bay. Bring your boat as there are cleats for docking two boats right in front of The Lake House or rent one from a local marina. Swim off the dock equipped with a ladder and fish off the long boardwalk right outside your door.

The sophisticated Lake House features flat screen HDTV, WiFi, leather furniture ceramic and hardwood floors, a natural fireplace and central air and comfy recliner. Both bathrooms have elevated toilets. There are also grab bars getting into the tub/shower bathroom.

The oak and granite kitchen is fully equipped with enough china and wine glasses to entertain friends and family. The bay view dining room offers a panoramic view of the bay. The large, private deck is positioned in a courtyard layout equipped with a gas barbecue, lounge chairs and three umbrella tables and there are six more cushioned chairs and table enough to accommodate 20.

French doors lead you into the Great Room with queen sleeper sofa, oak flooring, an 18 foot ceiling with large windows. Also a bathroom with shower and elevated toilet.

The King Lakefront Bedroom has a king bed, HDTV with access to the deck. The Merlot Bedroom has a king bed and HDTV and a rollaway bed.

After your game of bocce, have a BBQ then watch the colors of the sunset. Toast some marshmallows around the bonfire pit and create new memories.

Every season is magical when looking at the trees across the bay and breathing in that fresh air. The landscaping at both houses offers total privacy.

Memorial Day on Cass Lake

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about the lake house rental. It simply is outstanding and more than we had even asked for. The house is beautiful, centrally located, well stocked and perfect for a family to relax and unwind. The pier fishing and boat dock were ideal as we really just wanted to be out on the water and with four kids ranging in age from 10-19 that was one of the few things we could agree on. Dodge Park has also become a new family favorite - who knew such a quaint and ideal state park was in the area. Great beach and more fishing off the pier. Ricca and Kip were fabulous hosts and even when our boat stalled they were able to direct us to the local marina for help. It truly was a great holiday weekend - we will be back - don't change a thing!!!

Best Time Ever

Dear Ricca and Kip, I cannot thank you enough for providing the perfect place for our families to gather for our daughter's wedding. Our new in-laws travelled from Germany and were so pleased with the lovely home they stayed in. You provided all the necessities for a comfortable stay. The homes were extremely clean and well taken care of. We could not have asked for more caring hosts. I recommend your houses to any family looking for fun vacation for all members of the family.

lake house

This was our third time back to the lake house. It is a beautiful home with great views, a dock and cleats to hook up your boat. It is very tranquil yet close to a lot of tourist sites if you want activity. The owners are wonderful. They are friendly and accommodating in every way. They are actually now our friends :) We can't wait to go back next year, we may even make a family reunion out of it and rent both houses.

So much more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Ricca and Kip, Thank you for making our stay at the Lake House so memorable. The huge out door deck was just perfect for the much needed relaxation we were looking for. The view of the tranquil bay and sunsets are memories we still talk about. The property has a very welcoming and comfortable feeling to it that instantly made us feel at home. It was great to be able to rent jet skis near by and REALLY special to be ale to dock our boat right in front of the house. We wish we could have stayed MUCH longer, and will plan that for the next time. thanks again for providing a clean, well kept and beautifully furnished property!
