About Bryan Gilreath
Our Family is from Lansing and Grand Rapids, MI. We love Michigan. Summer time at the lake has given us our best memories. We are so excited to have our kids and Grandkids spend time with us to provide them with the special memories they will have.
Bryan Gilreath purchased this House in 2013
Why Bryan Gilreath chose Mecosta
We have also been renters for many years. In 2003 we rented on School Section Lake and it became one of our favorite lake's in Michigan. When we realized this year we could finally get our lakefront property this is the ONLY lake we looked at. We love it that much. We finally made the decision to purchase this property because we were struck with the incredible view. We are directly across from this gorgeous colorful island with nothing but mature trees. And beyond that you see the hundreds of acres of county land that is free of cabins and left as nature intended it to be. We also realized quickly this is a home. It is beautiful and fully equipped with everything you need. You only need to bring your clothes, food and drink and plan on having everything else already here. The lake is special. It is well maintained by the Association for weed control, the clearest water around and this incredible 'up north feel'. It has character with the island, peninsulas and amazing mature pines. There is a county park on the lake that has an amazing swimming area and walking trails. However this is still a semi-private lake. The lake only allows boats with motors less than 10hp. We as property owners can have as we please. And this courtesy is extended to you if you choose to bring a boat or Jet Ski.
What makes this House unique
We don't want your experience to stop at the end of the dock. We have kayak's, paddle boat and swim platform. You can also bring your own boat or rent a pontoon if desired.The semi-private lake keeps boat traffic down. The morning, late evening no-wake's and all sports during the day it the perfect balance of peaceful cruising, fishing and the fun of an all-sports lake when you just want to get out and enjoy the water and the sun.

The house was clean and met our needs for our golf trip to the area.
We rented this house for a golf trip for 8 guys. There was plenty of room for us to hang out with out being cramped. The location was convenient to the golf courses. We enjoyed our stay!
Great Time for Wedding
Rented a cabin on the lake which was a very beautiful lake. The house was great except for a few items which needs fixed like pliers in the shower to use for turning on the water and a toilet that was very slow to fill which made some in our party think the toilet was broken. Owner had posted a sign about the toilet which was explained. Otherwise, it was a great time and very comfortable for everyone on our party. Will definitely look at this place again when we need to stay up north again.
Great, chill lake!
The house is exactly as shown. Beautiful lake. Super chill and picturesque. We hung on the floating dock all weekend!
Love this lake!
We had a great time at the cottage and loved the lake! It was a great combination of quiet and peaceful for fishing, as well as fun swimming and boating during the day. We also were able to do some bird watching from the deck. The home had everything we needed for our stay and much more!
We loved it there! Thank you for the gift basket, too. The lake is perfect for kayaking and boating.
We rented it for a week for our family. The sandy beach and swim dock were perfect for the grandkids. We appreciated all that came with it, extra kayaks, firewood and everything in the kitchen. We loved the lake and island for boating. Thank you!
We had a great time!
Our family had a great time at this home! The view is just beautiful and the home had everything we needed. Nice, quiet area. We’ll be back!
