Country getaway! Located 1/2way between 2 small towns: Pinckney and Howell. Near Nature and Recreation areas. Our place is secluded and along a private road - but shopping restaurants and highway for commute are only 10 minutes away. Only 1/2 hour -45 minutes to Downtown Ann Arbor and University of Michigan. Our Private Lake (no public launch) is GREAT for fishing, swimming, kayak and canoeing. Birds and wildlife abound. Peace and quiet given and expected! Available all year round - in the winter there is skiing nearby - either cross country or downhill. Four bedroom and 4 full baths, 2 fireplaces, open floorplan with open kitchen/great room with vaulted ceiling, wrap-around deck and wrap around patio off walk-out finished basement. Fully furnished and well-appointed kitchen. Laundry room, game room stocked with card and board games, bookshelves full of books, 2 TVs with DVD players and large movie collection (no cable TV and NO INTERNET service unless you bring your own hotspot via cell phone.) We also have a "beachhouse" which is a 3-season cabin down by the lakefront- has electric but no plumbing - great for hanging out by the lake playing games, entertaining, day sleeping, and a firepit with sit-upon logs for roasting marshmallows or weenies.. We have a sandy beach area as well as a dock, 2 rowboats, a 4-person paddleboat, and a 2-person kayak for exploring the private 82-acre lake.
Whole house (not including garage), yard and lakefront shoreline with dock and boats.

No smoking and no pets please. The place will be clean for you and I expect you to leave it clean. I am fully stocked with cleaning supplies and cleaning tools. The kitchen has all appliances large and small (coffee pot, grinder, blender, toaster and toaster oven, griddle, gas stove and oven, microwave). Full laundry room and clothes line. No loud or large parties as we'd like to be kind to the neighbors. Our lot is almost 2 acres, and there's plenty of room to play - so please do NOT trespass onto the neighbors. Do not park or drive onto the grass. You cannot bring your own boat as there is no launch and the lake doesn't allow "foreign boats." But you are allowed to use our rowboats, kayak, paddleboat. Use of the beachhouse is restricted to day use up to 10 p.m.
I am a full-time Realtor in the Ann Arbor Area but I grew up in Detroit, Michigan and our family always had a "place on the lake" we could go to- sometimes it was a cousins' place, grandparents cottage, our own primary home, or a campground with small cottages we would rent. All those childhood memories are the ones I cherish - days spent beach combing collecting treasures, frogs/turtles, bugs and sunburns! Lazy hours in a rowboat with my Grandpa catching a bucket of fish. And sometimes just falling asleep in a hammock while listening to the lap lap of the water on the shore. Until you've tried it, you don't know what you are missing! Did you know that wherever you are, anywhere in Michigan, you are NEVER more than 6 miles from a body of water? I heard that somewhere and I believe it is true. My family currently has a wonderful private lake cottage only 30 minutes from downtown Ann Arbor. It is my FAVORITE escape and getaway. My kids love to go there and bring their friends. I am also an artist and builder and love crafting interesting "nests" - spaces that are nurturing, creative, comfortable, flexible, interesting and fun! I also enjoy reading, gardening, watching movies, cooking, playing games and hanging out with my kids. I am delighted to share my space so you can do the same.
