The space

This is not your average get-away cottage. This luxury lake home was custom built in “west coast modern style” using concrete floors with radiant heat, unique concrete countertops, custom cabinets and designer lighting. Positioned to take advantage of the gorgeous lake views and Michigan sunsets, the floor to ceiling windows and 5 balconies bring the outside in. Decorated with class and upscale finishes, you will have all the comforts of being at home while you’re on vacation. An open kitchen/living area is ideal for large group gatherings. The dining room is perfect for a small dinner party or a family meal. There’s an office space with internet access in case you need to work while on the road and a cozy reading nook to wind down at the end of the day. The media room is perfect for watching movies or relaxing. The lakeside deck is where you’ll want to be in the warmer months. Bring your boat or jet-skis and dock them right in the back yard.

This is an ideal short-term rental for executives, corporations, hospital employees and/or constituents that need a convenient rental close to the city. Also perfect for individuals or families looking for an upscale, yet laid-back lakefront experience. 20 minutes from UM/Ann Arbor, Brighton and Howell and less than 45 minutes from Lansing/East Lansing, Novi, Detroit, Plymouth, Northville, etc. You will feel like you’re up north, but will be moments away from the city.

 

Guest access

Please enjoy the house, the decks/balconies (be careful with the glass railings please!), the yard and gardens, the dock and the beach. The patio furniture, beach and water toys are there for you to enjoy.
The outdoor shed and the crawl space are not accessible. The garage is accessible but please do not park your car or your boat in there.
Do not park anywhere on the grass or in the road. NO RVs or Campers are allowed to be parked onsite, in the driveway or on the grass.

 

Other things to note

We have placed a couple surveillance cameras outside only since this is not our primary residence and we not there all the time.
