About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 15 Sleeps

Sixty feet of magical lakefront a mere two hours from Chicago!

Bring your boat or rent one from a marina close by. Three tiers of patios from lake to house. Perfect for morning coffee or late night bonfires. Magician Lake is a 500 acre natural spring fed lake. Great fishing as well as water sports.

With the lower level walk out, you have a perfect spacious area for kids for sleeping at night and hanging out during the day. Fuse ball & air hockey table, lots of board games, just in case there's rain.

Great Family Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kate for your kind hospitality during our first trip to Finnegan’s rainbow! We stayed here during my daughter’s wedding weekend in Benton Harbor and it was the perfect weekend getaway with plenty of space and activities for grown ups and boys ages 3,7,10, and 13 year. This house is loaded with plenty of places to sleep and games for the kids to play. We would definitely recommend to others. I would highly encourage those with young children to rent the lily pad since ours had a blast with it.

This property delivers!

I can't say enough about this property and Kate the owner. She contacted me the day before our arrival to go over some of the details and then was only a phone call or text away during our stay. This 3 bedroom/3 bath has more than enough room with a basement that has 3 sets of bunkbeds with endless hours of entertainment for the kids with toys and games. We stayed the entire week of July 4th and had an absolutely amazing time. You are 15 short minutes from Dowagiac if you need anything. But most importantly, the view from this property is what it is all about. You have 3 levels that offer a lakefront view that is breathtaking. Being able to stand in the water as you enter the lake was wonderful for our kids(ages 5-10). Our kids lived in the water with the floating slide and easy in/out access to the lake. Our family literally lived on the balconies of this property since the view is spectacular. The neighbors are very helpful as well. ;-) Thank you Kate for everything! We will be back!

Great waterfront space, lots of space for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Finegan's rainbow. Host was extremely communicative throughout our stay. We rented lots of fun water toys including a pontoon, lily pad, kayak and paddle board. House has plenty of space both indoors and outdoors. Basement space is excellent for the kids - fully decked out with 3 sets of bunk beds, toys and all the board games you'd ever need.
