house rental amenities

The main floor has an open floor plan, which can easily accomodate large groups.  The kitchen has all the appliances you are looking for including a refridgerator, dishwasher and stove.  There is also a wood burning stove in the living room, which can be a lot of fun on a cool night.  We also have a large five burner propane grill outside that makes cooking for large groups a breeze.  The house has centralized air conditioning and heating, which should keep you and your guests comfortable during your stay.

There are three bedrooms on the second floor including a master bedroom with a fireplace and a connected bathroom.  Each of the bedrooms have queen bed.  The third floor is an expansive loft area with two bunk beds that have full and twin sized beds.  There is also a queen sized bed and a futon located in this room which would be perfect for the kids, or an entire family. 

There is a game room above the garage, which includes a pool table, 10 foot shuffleboard table and a 50" plasma television, blu-ray player with surround sound that everyone will enjoy.  We also have a Nintendo Wii with eleven games for our guests to enjoy during their stay.  This room is sure to entertain all ages.

Outside we have a large deck area overlooking the lake and a large grassy area along the water where you and your guests can enjoy your time together by playing a variety of yard games, having a bonfire on the water or swimming off of our beach or dock.

We have a large driveway that can fit up to six mid-sized cars that can be used for parking during your stay.  We also have a fenced-in front yard where your dogs can play. Only well behaved dogs and declawed cats are welcome.

Unfortunately, we no longer host weddings, graduation parties or other large gatherings. Also, please note that this is a large house in a wooded area that can accumulate dust and cob-webs between cleanings.  Therefore, if cleanliness is a major priority for you or your guests, we courteously ask you to consider alternative housing arrangements.  We do not have internet access at the house. 


activities and attractions in Ann Arbor Michigan

The Links of Whitmore Lake is an 18 hole golf course, which is less than a mile away.  There are several great restaurants within five miles.  The private launch is just down the road, so bring your boat or jet ski and enjoy hours of fun on this private lake. 

Horseshoe Lake offers some of the best fishing around.  We've seen several lunkers caught and released this summer including a few from our shoreline.  (See the review below that one of our guests left). The lake also contains Northern Pike and several types of panfish.  Feel free to use our canoe and/or fishing equipment during your stay.  Please note that the lake is treated twice per year to reduce algea growth.  Unfortunately, swimming is not allowed for a 24 hour period after the treatment.  I won't know when the treatments will occur, but will be notified about 3-5 days ahead of time.

We also cater to all those football fans out there that are attending games at the Big House during the fall / winter months.  Driving to the stadium couldn't be easier as you simply cruise down Whitmore lake road into downtown Ann Arbor and avoid the large traffic back-ups on M-23. 

This is a perfect destination for people attending the Ann Arbor Art Fair.  Let us know if you would like to reserve this week as it is very popular. 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Don't Bring Anything But Yourself! It's All Here!

Review submitted: June 2, 2014   Date of arrival: May 30, 2014

We just returned from our 2nd stay in this beautiful lake front home. Couldn't be happier with our decision to return! And the pictures on this site do not do it justice. The home is lovely and anything that you could need is supplied.
We've rented homes in the past where the owner provided just the bare necessities, 4 forks, 4 cups, etc, you get the idea, but not here! Plenty of towels, sheets and blankets and the kitchen is stocked with more dishes and extras than you can count! Want a Belgium waffle? you can have one! A large family table that seats 12 is fantastic and the appliances are new and in excellent condition. The game room is a great place to spend some family time after a day of fishing. You can fish right off the dock and the little ones have no trouble pulling in fish after fish! (Small ones, mind you, but so exciting for them!) Plenty of (good)beds and bedding. The loft could sleep a small army! Everything is so comfy, a genuine home away from home! Lots of outdoor furniture,toys and life jackets for the kiddos, and a canoe for the elders to take a cruise in. Our family enjoys this so much and now looks forward to this every year. The proximity to Ann Arbor is great (we like the museum on campus for its' great dinosaur bones and it's free!) the owner is great, very good communication and answers your emails immediately! Only downside is that the water is very high in iron so if that sort of thing bothers you, bring some drinking water but it's hardly a problem! Highly recommended!!! A perfect place to relax.

Worth Every Penny!

Review submitted: September 18, 2012   Date of arrival: September 13, 2012

I just came back from my Brother's Bachelor party weekend with a group of 15. We had wanted to go golfing, as well as to go watch a University of Michigan game. This was by far the best place for us to rent as it was extremely affordable and within driving distance to Ann Arbor.

While it is sometimes difficult to tell if a place is big enough for you based on pictures alone, trust me when I say this place can hold up to a group of 15. You may want to bring an extra air mattress for the main floor or upper den. But, there were enough beds for everyone, including a pull out coach in the main den.

The nearest grocery store is about 5 minutes down the highway and Michigan Stadium is about 20 - 25 minute drive due to Game Day traffic if you are considering renting this place for Michigan games. Otherwise, it's like a 10 - 15 minute drive into Ann Arbor from here and a cab ride back to this rental unit was roughly $35 - $40 U.S. for us one way because we wanted to check out the night life after the game. Everything in Ann Arbor is cheap, though, in terms of food and booze, so cab fare wasn't an issue for us.

There is definitely room for 8 - 9 cars here. You can't really tell by the photos, but you can easily park 4 vehicles on the driveway. The house is at the very end of the road, so just off the side is a grassy area where you could park 4 - 5 more cars if necessary.

There was enough entertainment value in the cottage itself between the television channels available, the pool table, Nintendo Wii, and the main table in the dining room where we could play cards. The one thing we neglected to use was the fire pit, which is situation right beside the lake. You may also want to bring your bathing suits, too, depending on what time of the year you come as the lake was clean and warm for us.

If you aren't looking for a place to rent for a Bachelor party and/or aren't coming to Ann Arbor for a University of Michigan football game (which I would put under the "Adventure Seekers" category, then I would suggest this place to families with young children/teenagers, retired folks or Bachelorette parties if you are just looking for a few days to relax and unwind. This place has more than enough entertainment and space for that perfect cottage weekend getaway!

I would just suggest you bring at least one vehicle if you rent here. In case you want explore the Ann Arbor/Detroit area a little more.

Beautiful lake front home!

Review submitted: June 6, 2012   Date of arrival: May 25, 2012

This was a wonderful home that accommodated all of our wants and needs. It was large enough for everyone to have their own space, yet small enough for everyone to come together to enjoy each other. This beautiful home is located in a great area right on the water. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner of the property was very accommodating and helpful. He always responded quickly to all of my e-mails, calls, and texts. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a good home in the Ann Arbor area!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, romantic getaway
