A large deck and glass enclosed porch, with a view of the lake, provides a pleasant place to enjoy a summer breakfast or to just relax. Other rooms include a parlor with a piano and a sitting room with a bay window overlooking the lake, there are eighteen acres to wander and a picnic area by the lakeshore. Guests may also enjoy the paddleboat, canoe, and evening bonfires by the lake. The central location of the Irish Hills offers antiquing, fifty-two spring fed lakes, golfing, fishing, quaint towns, and much more. Car enthusiasts are just 3 miles from Michigan Speedway.
