This is a large, lovely, and traditional home on Dewey Lake in the Sister Lakes area of historic Dowagiac, Michigan in the southwest corner of Michigan. This large vacation home actually sleeps 20 with 7 bedrooms, 13 beds, and 3.5 bathrooms! (Two of the bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms are on the first floor with the remaining bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor.) This vacation rental home has a very nice dock on Dewey Lake, private lakefront, completely gated yard, a very nice deck with lots of outdoor furniture and a nice gas grill, and a fire ring for bonfires and s'mores!
It features a very large and highly functional kitchen for cooking delicious meals, a living room with a fireplace and a nice view of Dewey Lake, and a separate family room with a large flat screen television (with cable television) and its own fireplace. The cottage has a nice, large laundry room on the first floor that includes a washer and dryer. The cottage is fully heated via a powerful forced air furnace and natural gas. A new $20,000 multi-zone central air conditioning system was installed in the house in 2019 and it works great at cooling the house in the summer! This vacation rental home is both pet-friendly and child-friendly and is truly a wonderful location for families and groups both large and small!
Dewey Lake itself is one of the group of 6 lakes that make up Sister Lakes. Dewey Lake has a colorful history which includes the Dewey Lake monster. A dock going out into Dewey Lake is provided during the summer months and guests are very welcome to use the dock for their boats or other watercraft (jet skis, kayaks, etc.). Note that no boats or other watercraft are included with the rental. Please also note that Garrett Road runs between the house and lake.
The geographic location of the vacation home in the heart of southwest Michigan makes it a great location for families and/or groups that are looking to visit any part of southwest Michigan, including Lake Michigan, the numerous cute little beach towns along Lake Michigan including New Buffalo, Saint Joseph and South Haven, and the hip and fun university town of Kalamazoo, which is home to both Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo College. There are several famous wineries in the area including Tabor Hill Winery and St. Julian Winery. The vacation home is also not too far from southwest Michigan's ski resorts of Timber Ridge, Bittersweet, and Swiss Valley. Four Winds Casino and Resort is also not far from this vacation home.
We truly believe that this vacation rental cottage provides a great location for groups and families to stay while visiting anywhere in southwest Michigan and we would love to have you stay at the cottage!
