TRANQUILITY has that log cabin feel, a cozy but roomy 4 bedroom home on the south side of Lake Missaukee in Northern Michigan.  The beach, which is sandy with shallow water, also has a cozy fire pit with huge log seats for those campfire nights and roasted marshmallow treats.

Entering this home one feels ready to relax either in the sitting room right at the entrance, or in the living room overlooking the lake, or sitting on the deck to enjoy some lake breezes with a glass of iced tea.

The main floor has an open concept with the kitchen, dining and living area.  The kitchen has everything that a group of 13 might need for making and enjoying their meals.  The dining table seats 10 with room for 3 more at the counter.  The Master bedroom (Queen bed) with its private bath is also on the main floor with another full bath and 2nd bedroom (Full over Full bunk).  

The lower walk-out level has a family room (with a pull-out sofa), Laundry Area, Air Hockey table, along with 2 more bedrooms and a 3rd bath. Bedroom 3 has a Queen bed and the 4th has a Queen and Twin beds.

Memories Made on the Lake Last a Lifetime

Date of Stay

Aug 16, 2018

5 stars

This home is everything it is described and pictured to be. A beautiful blend of natural beauty and a comfortable homey feel. There was plenty of room for our family of 11- we especially adored the large table that sat all of us and appreciated having some baby items available for use! The views were stunning, inside and out. We loved spending time on the deck and really enjoyed having a private beach area. The fire pit on the beach was fantastic and we also enjoyed the fire pit closer to the house- loved having a supply of firewood readily available! The lake itself is pretty shallow (and warm!), great for families with younger children -- it doesn't get deep until probably 50-yards out. Lake City was a short drive away and supplied almost everything we needed during our stay. Our family had an amazing time, made lots of memories and would recommend this rental for any season... don't forget to sign the wall! Thank you.

Beautiful House on Lake with all amenities

Date of Stay

Aug 4, 2016

5 stars

Lovely and modern larger log-style house with all amenities on the lake. We had 7 adults and 3 teenagers and everyone was quite comfortable all the time. We also had a guest with special needs and the owners did all they could to help accommodate. Owner was very attentive and responsive throughout the entire pre-rental and rental process. We spent most of the time in the lake or on the jet ski and having family meals. Great kitchen / dining room / living room looking out onto deck and lake and sunsets. It's a quieter lake, so renting the jet ski for the week is highly recommended as it was always fun to use it. We all had a great trip and would certainly consider this property again if coming back to the area.

Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Girls Getaway, Families with Teenagers.
