We purchased this home in the spring of 2013. It is large but comfortable and located on a beautiful piece of property overlooking Portage Lake. This 3,200 square foot ranch home features four bedrooms, four bathrooms and two large living areas. It can comfortably accommodate two families with kids, three or four couples or five singles privately. For entertainment the home has a puzzle table, tons of games, books & DVD's, a pool table, a ping pong table, large screen TV with Apple TV and WiFi.
Portage Lake is an all-sport lake that is connected to Lake Michigan through a channel. Portage lake is great for sailing, fishing, motorized and non-motorized boating, swimming and watching the sunset. We have a 5 person paddle boat, one two person kayak and 3 single kayaks that renters are welcome to use.
Home is located 5 miles North of the Little River Casino. In the winter it is about 45 minutes from Caberfae Peaks and 30 minutes from Crystal Mountain for skiing, close to snowmobile & cross country ski trails, on a great lake for ice fishing and close to many charming towns filled with wonderful restaurants and shops. In the summer is is close to many great Lake Michigan Beaches and within 30 minutes of many quaint waterfront towns & villages, wineries, antique shops, art galleries, hiking trails and museums. Less than 30 minutes from amazing golf courses, including Arcadia Bluffs (9 miles away), Manistee National (15 miles) and the Heathlands (less than 1/2 mile). About an hour drive to the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore or Traverse City. There is so much to do in this area!
