Why John Urquhart chose Whitmore Lake
I have a family cottage in northern Michigan, but I often can't get away on the weekends. I wanted to build a lake house close to my house, so I could use it when I have social commitments that require me to be in town on the weekend. I am renting it when I am not using it to help pay for it.
What makes this House unique
I love that it is just like being on a lake in northern Michigan - but I can be in downtown Ann Arbor or Brighton in 10 minutes.

Beautiful and Relaxing
Beautiful setting by the lake. The house was spacious and clean. Property manager was helpful and kind. We would stay here again
Everything in description is accurate - just bring your tooth brush !
Home is well stocked (bath towels/beach towels); plenty of room (2 1/2 baths and an outdoor shower); nice floating raft; nice for swimming; nice fire pit; fishing boat, paddle boat and kayaks.
We did have a power outage, BUT the owner has an in home system that when generator is turned on, you've got enough electric power until power returns !!
Perfect Family Vacation
John, the owner, was quick to respond to any questions or concerns!
Wonderful quiet little lake with something for everyone to enjoy.
The cottage is well stocked with paper products, linens, kitchen items etc.
Lots of water toys, lifejackets, and anything one could pretty much want for use on the water.
Nice little sandy beach for the kids, with gradual drop off.
My family of 10 had a fantastic time and will be returning next year!
Whitmore Lake House
The owner communicated with us very accurately and promptly. He purchased a coffee grinder for us and responded promptly to an air conditioner problem. The house was well supplied with towels, linens, etc. Lots of outdoor seating and equipment. Also many items for fishing, boating, kayaking, etc. Beautiful view. Small sand beach. Close to Ann Arbor for lots of activities.
What a lovely home not far from all the large cities and so close to the highway. John was very easy to work with. It's amazing how many the home could sleep comfortably. There were tons of water activities to choose from.l I'm hoping the next time I stay it will be for a few more days and the weather will be a little more cooperative.
