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.

Love this lake!

  • 5 of 5

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 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!

Perfect holiday weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing stay. Plenty of room for our large family. The kids played on the sandy beach from sun up to sun down. Everyone enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards as a way to take advantage of the gorgeous lake. We highly recommend this property for those looking for a way to enjoy lake life.

Beautiful Lake View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time here! The lake right outside with the island straight across from the house was a view I’d never get tired of... just tranquil and beautiful. It snowed during our stay, but it didn’t stop us from using the kayaks. The house was clean and very well supplied with everything you could want... including games and puzzles. We’d love to come back in the summer to fully enjoy the lake.
