This is a beautiful and immaculate home, and is a perfect destination for your family vacation. The house is updated, very clean, and is in perfect condition for your trip. Right on a main canal off the all sports, 2000+ acre “Wixom Lake.” It's a perfect spot all year round.
We have had several family rentals over the past three years, and the feedback has been phenomenal. We appreciate family rentals.
Wixom Lake is great for boating, fishing, and all the water sports. This house has everything you need for an awesome vacation. This is approximately 1600 square feet with a wide open floor plan. It has 4 beds, plus a futon and plenty of floor space. It has central heat & air, full size HE washer/dryer, water softener, fireplace, gas grill, bonfire pit, boardwalk, large covered porch, and dock space for one boat.
Wixom Lake is a large lake with a lot of opportunities to have fun. A warm sunny day will bring out the boats, tubers, and Jet Ski’s. Wixom Lake also hosts numerous bass fishing tournaments every summer. Explore the many canals and find a nice quiet swimming hole. There are multiple sand bar/docking spots which are great for volleyball, swimming, or just relaxing. The marina and "Smith's Landing" are very close, and they offer pontoon rentals. The winter months offer the snow enthusiasts many options. Wixom Lake is very popular with the ice fisherman and snowmobiles. The state park is right off the lake, and you can ride the sleds right to the state lands.
The property itself is right on a wide canal just minutes from the main lake. Bass fishing is very popular on this canal. The water is approximately 6 feet deep on our canal, and is great for swimming. The night skies are filled with stars and the big dipper will greet you almost every night. The lower level of the house consists of a large kitchen, lots of counter space and all the amenities including refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher and Keurig coffee maker. We can't supply the food, but everything else is there waiting for you. The dining area includes a large dining table that seats 8-10 comfortably, but if you need extra room feel free to eat outside on our covered porch. It's a great spot to relax with the morning sun. The great room is spacious and includes couch, loveseat and chair/ottoman. The fireplace is electric, and there is a 50", 4k flat screen HDTV and DVD player. The downstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed. The bathroom is clean, and includes a full sized shower. Attached to the bathroom is our main floor bedroom including queen size bed.
Upstairs we have two more bedrooms and another full bathroom. Bedroom #2 includes a queen sized bed plus flat screen TV. The bunk room includes a futon and an extra-large set of bunk beds, with FULL sized mattress top and bottom. This room is perfect for the kids.
It’s a great getaway, but you are still close to a lot of activity. We are located just north of Midland, which is a fantastic town filled with nightlife and activity for all ages. Catch a baseball game at Loons Stadium; the "grass passes" are the best. The quiet town of Gladwin is just to our North. The immediate area includes a market, hospital, multiple restaurants/bars, plus an antique shop.
Feel free to take a road trip and visit numerous golfing and shopping opportunities. We are located 35 miles from the Soaring Eagle Casino which offers shows and gambling nightly.
New additions as of October 2015: HDTV, wifi/high speed internet, and land line telephone. Rental includes local and domestics long distance. These new features make this an excellent spot for work activity as well. I personally use this property for my office days, and I am very happy with new services.
Please note, rentals do not include the use of our boat. Pontoon rentals are available from multiple companies in the area. Dock space is limited to one boat, 24 foot max.+ More
