Pontiac Lake Place



LAKE/WATERFRONT: Located directly on Pontiac Lake!
*Kayaks and floating water mat!

Entering this waterfront neighborhood filled with lakefront homes welcomes you with a feeling of peaceful luxury.  Pulling into the driveway, while the neighbors are very close, you can often feel the breeze from the lakefront.  The Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area is conveniently just across the lake. Stepping into this lake house, the openness pulls you toward the fresh, modern layout with the sleek, stylish furnishings. The contemporary look allows you to dream away while soaking in you time on Pontiac Lake.  

The kitchen is large and inviting with plenty of counter space. The kitchen island doubles as both a prep and dining area for your casual meals.  Watching the lake as you both cook and enjoy your meal together is a unique experience for most.  

Nonetheless, thought has been put into how to capture a few minutes of work while your family vacations, or as you live the professional nomadic lifestyle with a designated work space. 

At the end of the day, convenience is what captures a true vacation.  The two (2) Master Bedrooms, one on the main floor and the other upstairs, both have en suite bathrooms. The other 2 bedrooms are also divided between the upper and main levels, along with the 2 additional bathrooms. Another unique quality of this lake house is ability to do laundry. While it's never required on vacation, if you packed light, need to dry a bathing suit or just want to return home with suitcases of clean clothes, we have you covered. There is a washer/dryer on both the main and the upper levels.

Don't forget to spend your time outdoors with the soft cushioned chairs while you enjoy the fire pit, outdoor dining and grill. Aaahh... those summer nights... After a restful nights sleep in the king bed, that morning sunrise may lure you to rise early. The sunrise is sure to put the icing on the memories you have created together at the Pontiac Lake Place.

Family Getaway
Pontiac Lake Place was perfect for our family getaway. The home is well stocked, well kept and in an awesome location. We enjoyed using the kayaks, sitting by the fire, and the lovely views of the lake. We would definitely recommend this property.

Melinda, we're so glad that the property was perfect for you, and we appreciate your recommendation!  We'd love to see you come back again.

Pontiac Lake Place is an amazing house. This is our second stay in 6 weeks! We've come to stay for dance competitions and we adore the rooms and the amount of showers and space there is to get 4 dancers ready. Our girls enjoyed the lake and the space to play during both stays. The moms enjoyed the kitchen and the fire pit outside. The staff is amazing and so responsive! We plan to stay next year during completion season.


Thank you for taking the time to share your review of your stay at Pontiac Lake, and we truly appreciate the shout out to our team for the service you experienced! I'm glad you and the girls enjoyed your second stay, as well as the first, especially being able to get ready without issue! We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

Great house for friends or family
This large house is very nice and has everything you need. The kitchen is very well equipped, the bedrooms and beds are great. The showers were easily accessible and everything was updated. The outside area was very nice and would have been great place to sit outside except the weather did not cooperate . But the view from inside is beautiful also! We went to the Ford Museum and Greenfield Village which were about a 45 minute drive. We enjoyed our stay!


Thank you for sharing your review Carolyn! It's great to know that you found the house to be well equip, and able to work well for the whole family, including the convenient location to other things in the area!  Hopefully we can have you back in the future!
