Welcome to The Lake House! Let your stress melt away in our charming beach inspired lake house! Vaulted ceilings and white shiplap create an open concept living space. Separate sleeping spaces make our home ideal for a family or a group looking for the perfect Michigan getaway! One king bed plus three twin beds & a crib fitted with fresh linens will ensure a good night's sleep. The boat launch is less than a minute away and a dock is provided to fish off of or to sit and enjoy the sunrise.
Fine Lake living! We fell in love with our Lake House the moment we walked in the door 4 years ago; I know you will feel the same! This space has been reserved for use by my family, and now we are ready to share it with others! The joy we find in spending time near the water is unmatched. From the vaulted ceilings to the fresh decor inspired by and gathered from our travels, we love the quiet space we own on the lake.
Our beachfront is located behind a small island that protects us from the wind and waves and also is a protected nesting ground to much wildlife! You often see the cranes flying in, swans swimming by, and red-winged black birds singing a song as the sun comes up. While this leaves our swimming area small, we find it to be worth it for the wildlife and beauty. If you stand on the end of the dock and turn to your 10 o'clock, there is a sandy beach area we ride over to and will spend the morning or afternoon at, swimming or hanging out with the other people who may also be there. Many people on the lake call this area the "sandbar" or "the beach".
Our property includes parking for 2-3 cars, lake frontage, dock, fire pit, sand box, small pool for the children, assorted life vests, some fishing poles, beach umbrella(s), and limited toiletries. If you don't need much, it's everything you need for a night or weekend away. If you have a special request, please let us know and we can try and accommodate.
Fine Lake is well-known for its EXCELLENT FISHING! It is kept well stocked with perch, bass, bluegill and even walleye! Fish right from the dock or bring your own boat, as there is a public launch right next door. Much of the lake has a sandy bottom, so if you don't like where you go to swim, just boat a little further and you are bound to find an area you enjoy.
Nearby attractions include the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary, Fort Custer State Park, Gilmore Car Museum, Galesburg antique stores and only 25 minutes from Downtown Kalamazoo & Downtown Battle Creek. The Lake House is a short drive to Gull Lake where you can also use the boat launch and spend a day on that lake. So much to choose from!

Jennifer, mother of two little girls, wife of my handsome firefighter. We are in love with the caribbean, living on a lake in Michigan, with dreams of traveling the world. We love animals, and have two dogs and two cats that call our house home. We love a simple life, meeting others, telling our story as well as hearing yours. We love good food, vegetarian eating being our favorite. The sun and water energize and calm us all. We love the outdoors, and putting our feet in the earth, from the sand of the sea to the rocks of the river.
