About the property

2 Separate Lakefront Homes! Sleeps 10 Comfortably Between The Two Cabins.

Amazing value! 2 remodeled knotty pine homes for the price of one! Both homes included for listed price!! This secluded lakefront retreat is truly one of a kind. Located on a 20 acre, 75 foot deep private lake with over 100 feet of frontage. Loaded with bass, bluegill, sunfish, pike, and catfish. Two acres of gorgeous wooded property, truly a park like setting. Enjoy a campfire by the lake or a sunset on the covered porch or brand new deck on the 2nd home. Watch the kids from the covered porch catching fish on the dock! 2 kayaks, a rowboat, and a paddleboat are included for use with rental. The lake does not allow gas motors, and it is a very peaceful setting.

Featuring a main home with game area, living room, dining room, full kitchen, full bath, large bedroom with 1 queen and 2 twins, and a 2nd bedroom with 1 queen bed. The 2nd home features full kitchen, living room, full bath, bedroom with a queen size bed, and a great loft area that sleeps 2-4 comfortably on air mattresses and is perfect for kids or adults. Each home has a refrigerator, stove, and microwave of it's own. Furnished with plates, glasses, silverware, towels, linens, and most other items you will need. Two car garage is attached for use. The two home set up is ideal for friends, families, kids, etc. Each party has their own completely seperate fully functioning home within 20 feet of the other!

Located just 20 minutes from two larger cities with most common stores, and 20-30 minutes away from famous Frankenmuth and the Birch Run Outlets.

If there were any negatives? Obviously the lake allows no gas motors. Very quiet, no jet skis buzzing around on this smaller lake. This is something I personally prefer, but it is something to keep in mind.

It is a rural area in a wooded setting. There are a few stores close by, one party store with pizza and standard items, one grocery store that has meats for grilling, etc. Outside of these stores you are 20 minutes or so from a larger city.

As far as a beach area, there is a small sandy area near the dock that is perfect for small children. The water line is fine to walk in but not much of a swimming area. It is ideal to use a small inflatable raft with life jackets and float out to swim in the lake. The lake is very clear and clean and is great for swimming.

Cell reception is spotty in this area, but the homes do have Wifi as well as a landline with long distance included. Antenna TV in the cabins, but no cable.

While secluded, there are neighbors nearby and excessive noise is not tolerated. No lake usage after dark, no excessive noise especially after dark. Not a 'party' atmosphere and the association does monitor this closely.

Overall, these is just no chance for disappointment with the homes. Clean, new, and loads of character. Central air in the main cabin, and window AC in the smaller cabin will keep you comfortable through your stay. TV's and DVD players in each cabin, Wifi included, and there is a Roku in the main cabin for Netflix, Pandora, and other apps for your use.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions, we have loved this place for many years and I know you will too.

Why Scott Winther chose Otter Lake

We purchased these homes because we saw what it could be from day one, and seeing the property transform has been amazing. We love these homes and you will as well.

What makes this house unique

Unique is definitely the word for this property. The seclusion, the setting, and the privacy that two seperate homes allows is not easy to find.

Best rental we've had for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We do a family vacation every couple years, and this rental was perfect for us! The two couples and two grandsons stayed at the big cabin and ol' Grandma and Grandpa had a retreat :-) Every comfort is carefully considered and it was cozy and inviting. We'll be back....

This property is absolutely beautiful. Quiet, serene and just like a little slice of heaven. The lake was beautiful even though it was cold, we still had a great time enjoying the view and the cabin. can't wait to go back.

A bit disappointed...

  • 2 of 5

Both cabins are neat and clean and the view is awesome!

The main cabin bathtub is very slick and needs to be adjusted accordingly maybe even a mat would help....or some kind of texture applied to make it safer!

The second cabin seating is not at all comfortable....a sectional that does not stay together....

I strongly suggest the owner consider cable or satellite and there is no cell service at all!

The beds need to be updated although the toppers certainly do help!

The kitchens are minimally stocked although the appliances are more than adequate.

Great cabins

  • 5 of 5

We booked the cabins for a girls weekend and we were all very happy with our choice. Cabins were clean and very comfortable. It is a very quiet setting and very relaxing. We are already talking about booking again next year! Highly recommend these. Great property for a great price!

A beautiful relaxing property to unwind!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely wonderful. The cabins were very nice and comfortable. We had another couple that went with us so having two separate cabins was a nice option. Each one had everything we needed for the weekend. You have space to have private time but also plenty of space to be together too. The larger cabin has a nice covered deck towards the lake we had early morning coffee on. Kitchen had everything we needed just had to make a run to the store for food. Frankenmuth is only 20 minutes away so we spent the day shopping in town then picked up what food we needed on the way back. The beds were very comfortable with good quality bedding. Scott was very nice and helpful when we got to the cabins. He has made the property very nice and inviting. We have already talked about booking it again.

Car: recommended

Located around 20 minutes north of the cities of Lapeer and Davison, and around 20 mins to the famous city of Frankenmuth featuring Bronner's year round Christmas store as well as sightseeing and great food. Also located around 25 minutes from the outlets at Birch Run. The cities of Lapeer and Davison both offer many restaurants and larger stores such as Meijer, Wal-mart, and more.
