Property Details

Updated: Mar 16, 2015
House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 16 Sleeps

Located 15 miles from PawPaw, Mi, this 4000 sq. ft. home was newly-built as our personal getaway haven, but sharing our beautiful home with you will help fund our children's Christian College tuition.

Just 2 1/2 hours from Chicago, this beautiful getaway vacation home has 80 ft of lake frontage on the 60 acre spring fed Hemlock Lake, that is one of the best fishing lakes around.

Although a smaller lake, if you have a small speedboat, you can do some tubing, skiing or kneeboarding or just enjoy a trip around the lake on one of the provided kayaks or paddleboat.

Don't forget your fishing tackle to catch some blue gill, sunfish or crappie.

With a sandy beach that extends 40 ft from shore to a gradual decline at the end of the dock, it is the PERFECT spot for young children to enjoy a swim or build sand castles.

The large yard has ample space for a game of bean bag toss, croquet or badmitton or enjoy an afternoon nap in one of our comfortable hammocks.

A campfire (wood provided) will make for a great ending to your fun-filled days. This beautiful home is equipped with everything needed for a memorable family vacation.

This is not just a rental, it is a home away from home. Living nearby we are easily accessible if you need anything.

Don't forget the golf clubs for the nearby courses.

Note: Please take into consideration the size of the lake when considering bringing a speedboat. The lake best accomadates small speed boats, fishing boats, pontoons and jetskis. Guest may only bring one motorized boat or jetski. The boat launch is quite shallow, so to launch a boat, a 4-wheel drive high clearance vehicle is recommended. Owners will not be responsible for launching or removing boats from lake.

Note: This rental is for family vacations, it is not a party house. We expect guests to treat house, furnishings and property with respect.

No smoking in the house.

Alcohol usage results in many boating accidents yearly so please drink responsibly. If neighbors complain of roudiness due to drunkenness, you will also forfeit the remainder of your stay.

ABSOLUTELY NO PETS. Owners are severely allergic.

Looking for a quiet fall weekend get-away or a place for a women's or men's retreat, this is the spot.

Decorated for Christmas the month of December. This would make a great place for your family Christmas gathering.

Thinking about a winter get-away, this would make a great destination with Swiss Valley Ski resort only 20 minutes away.

About the Owner

My husband has been a home builder for over 30 years and built this beautiful vacation home for ourselves,to have a place large enough for our 10 children to come home to with their own families, but with construction business being slow for the last several years and 7 children still at home to support along with college tuition to pay, we decided to share our home with others to get through this recession. We are happy to say that we have had great renters the last couple years and now one son is a college graduate in computer programming, our daughter is finishing her last semester in nursing at a Christian college and another son is a freshman/sophomore at another Christian college studying 'pitching' but getting a business degree while there. We also have 4 adopted children (3 of which are in middle school) and a 2nd grader (whom at the present time I home-school). Although we miss spending the summers on the lake, we are glad to know it is being used for others to create wonderful family memories.

This place is just fabulous. I stayed there with my daughters,son in laws grandkids, brother and sister in law and my son in laws family. We had a great time. The house is just beautiful and has everything you would want. It is very clean and so comfortable and so much room. There were so many things to do right at the house. We didn't have to leave the house. So much for the kids to do. We went swimming, kayaking, paddle boat, we played bags. We relaxed an sat and looked out at the beautiful lake. This is just an awesome place. We just loved it and Cindy is one of the nicest person you could meet and very accomadating. If your looking for a place to get away and enjoy yourself this is the place. We highly recommend it. Hope to go back next year!! Thank you Cindy!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Nancy for the review. This being our first season renting it is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Maybe a fall or winter getaway will fit your schedule so you don't have to wait a whole year to come back.
