The Main House and Guest House are located on a large hill-top with beautiful black walnut trees that create a shaded canopy over the four acre front yard. An additional eight acres (located behind the houses) have woods, ravines and plenty of nature watching and hiking for everyone.

The property is complete with a private pool, trampoline, zip-line, jungle gym, game room (ping pong, air hockey,foosball and tons of board games), recreation room - with a GIANT 75' TV screen ideal for movie night. Plenty available for never ending family fun.

You might never want to leave the property but if you do - nearby activities include, boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing on Long Lake, Clear Lake or Corey Lake. Public access to lakes and boat rentals are available. The area also has many rivers and is great for canoeing/kayaking (several locations offer rentals)

Horseback riding is available year round only a few miles away at Camp Eberhart (YMCA). There are several golf courses in the area and cycling is popular as well. Also, the extremely adventurous can try Powerchutes (powered parachute planes) at Rouch Outdoor.

The nearby town of Three Rivers has a charming Main Street with wonderful stores and restaurants. Also the town has several national chain grocery stores, restaurants, a movie theater, bowling alley, miniature golf and much more.

In the winter, Swiss Valley Ski and Snowboard area is only six miles away. The property has a large private hill for sledding and on the many surrounding frozen lakes ice skating and ice fishing are popular activities.

Regardless of the season there is always plenty of activities for family and friends to have a great time together. This magnificent property has been a retreat for families for over 100 years.

Very nice area

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The home was very nice. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. It would have been nice to have a bathroom in the guest house. The pool and game room were a great addition. It was really great that we could bring our dog and entertain family in the area. Dan was very kind and helpful. Would stay again.

The heated pool with the adjacent large covered patio are the standout features of this property.

  • 4 of 5

This property was just right for our family vacation that included 8 adults and our five grandchildren ages 3 through 9. The casual home, large property for play, and especially the pool and covered patio area provided a comfortable setting that was enjoyed immensely. Owner and caretaker very responsive.

Third time staying here... love it!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 has stayed here 3 times now over the last 6 years, perfect for a big family plus extended family. Kids LOVE the pool, great covered seating area for the grown-ups to be close by at all times. Loved walking the grounds, playing in the front yard, and visiting Long Lake nearby.

Wonderful Family Reunion and Gathering for our youngest's wedding.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to celebrate family. The kids were busy with whiffle ball, soccer, jumping on the trampoline, sharing two bonfires and swimming a couple of days. Unfortunately, the pool was having its problems. The caretaker came almost every day to adjust the chemicals and get it back to order. He certainly knew what he was doing, but since I have a pool myself, I know this can be tricky sometimes. We had plenty of space for sleeping and playing and also rooms to go to if you wanted to have some space and peace and quiet. We made several meals together and enjoyed visiting local markets for strawberries and cherries (even purchased a cool cherry seeder) and met the Latvian folks down the road who sell Latvian baked goods once a week. What a treat! Our son came to the house on his wedding day to dress, so we were all together getting all dressed up for the big event. The only downside was when everyone left the next morning. That's hard on a mother's psyche.

A Great Fit for our Family

  • 4 of 5

We brought our family of 9 adults and 5 children (2 were infants, thanks Maggie for letting us go over the 12 person occupancy) for a three- night stay. The house and grounds were a very good fit for our family, as we had no agenda and basically just enjoyed hanging out and being together without needing to worry about bothering anyone else with our noisy crew. The pool was wonderful. The beds were super comfortable, with quality sheets which to me is a deal-breaker. Well-stocked kitchen, plenty of places to sit for meals. The house has a lot of "old-house" quirks (creaky floors, doors) which to me were expected and charming.

The only downer was the fact that there is no plumbing in the guest house (a half bath would be wonderful) which meant late-night trips down the stairs, outside, and back in to the main house for one of our couples.

Some things could have been a tad cleaner, and the yard was not mowed, but we arrived on a Thursday which apparently is not the norm, so we may have taken the caretakers by surprise. All in all we're a laid-back bunch and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We'd gladly come back another time - although by next year we will probably have exceeded the maximum capacity number.

The property was truly gorgeous. There was lots of places to walk around and explore.

  • 5 of 5

The house looked just like its pictures. We had plenty of room to gather with our family and to find our own spaces.Everything we could need was provided and we enjoyed cooking and playing in the pool. We had a wonderful vacation surrounded by lakes and rivers.

Fishing/water skiing and pontoon boats are available for rent for cruising the local lakes. Kayaks and canoes can be rented for trips down the many rivers. Horseback riding is available at stables close by. If you like picking your own fruits (seasonal) you can pick your own strawberries, grapes, apples and peaches at nearby orchards. Swiss Valley Ski and Snowboard Area is only 7 miles away. Notre Dame is only 40 miles away if you want to watch a football game in the fall. Much to do any time of year!!
