Modern Lakefront Ranch Home, 3 Bedrooms , 2.5 Baths, great escape!
Robert and I bought the home in 2010, we quickly discovered we were not using it much, due to work and family demands. We saw a need for a vacation home on Strawberry lake, for families like ours , that needed an occasional place to meet and reconnect with each other. With this thought in mind, we began to share our home, this has been a gratifying experience for us. We appreciate our guests and love to meet them when ever we are able.
Why Robert chose Pinckney
We chose to buy on Strawberry Lake because we liked the adventure of exploring the Huron River and visiting 6 other lakes. We thought it would be a place our adult children would also enjoy for years to come. Now, they are so busy and 4 of the 5 live out of state, it's wonderful to have such a special place for them to visit when they come home.
What makes this House unique
We love the large yard with the expansive view of the lake. We love our main bedroom, for it's size and huge spa type shower. Convenient to shopping, yet you feel like you are away from it all.

Great weekend getaway
We were looking for a house out of the way but close enough to stores so we could supply the weekend. This house fit the bill perfectly. The views are amazing. The house is very well maintained and a great layout. Exactly what we were looking for. The deck overlooks the lake and is huge! The bedrooms where nice and beds comfortable. The rooms were spread out just enough the the snorers didn’t bother anyone. Everything worked and was clean.
We would definitely stay again! Thank you for allowing us to use your home.
Thanks Dave, we look forward to your next visit.

Beautiful views, relaxing spaces
My family stayed here for 2 weeks in July. One son and family for 1st week, other son and family 2nd week. Owners we're very accommodating for our cross over. Marion called in advance to ask specific questions for our family to be prepared and provided additional information about what we'd need/property. I chose to rent the pontoon and kayaks and it was well worth it. I'm a kayak afficianado now. We had a blast! The deck was wonderful and we had the best seats for travelers coming out/in of the river as well as sandhill cranes, geese, ducks, rabbits and birds of all kinds. My young grandchildren were able to catch all the bluegill they wanted right off the pier. They supply everything you might need other than food and clothes. We had horrible storms our last day, power was out all over and they made sure we were safe and had enough time to leave the next day, even though they were at a special family function. Wonderful owners!
Strawberry Lake House
We had family come in from all over the country for my daughter's graduation from the University of Michigan. The first time you drive there is feels like it is a long way from anything but is really less than 30 minutes from the places we needed to be. There is a large grocery store nearby making setting up very convenient. One of our friends mentioned that they felt like they were "up north" and I agreed. We had deer in the lawn every morning.
My 4-stars was based on the air mattresses. We were told the one on the couch leaked and we found the other one had a slow leak also. I don't think it uncommon for them to leak and if you are putting kids on the air mattress it probably doesn't matter but we had adults and it mattered a little. I am also not sure how the two air mattresses would have worked in the one room where they are found. Robert thanked us for mentioning it and said it was important for him to know in order get it fixed.
The kitchen was well-equipped and we had a large family gathering. There is a 4x8 table in the kitchen area and small dinette. We had room for everyone to sit down and enjoy conversation.
Thank you for staying with us! Thank you for your feed back on the mattresses, one has been repaired and one is on order. Again, congratulations on the graduation!

Great location, great rental. Owners very easy to communicate and work with
Thank you, see you in 2019!
Great place for a family vacation!
This house was lovely. There were so many fun "extras." Everyone enjoyed pontoon boat rides, a few of us tried out the kayaks, and the kids loved the pedal carts. The kitchen was well stocked with necessities. The view from the deck was beautiful, and there was plenty of comfortable patio furniture. The owners were very available and responsive to any questions or concerns. The kids loved having so much space to run and play in the yard between the house and lake.
The only thing I would change: add more hooks or bars for hanging towels in bathrooms and/or bedrooms. :)
Great getaway close to Ann Arbor and Brighton
This is a very well-maintained, elegant house on the water with a sweeping lawn. We were 2 kids and 2 adults. There was a lot for the kids to do. It would be great for 3 adult couples and could fit more fairly easily. My family had a really nice time. Our rental came with use of a pontoon boat which was a huge plus!
We look forward to seeing you again! Robert & Marian
