Stone House is a pleasant, ranch-style home in McMillan, Michigan, just off MI-28. Hosting 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; this home has new furniture and new flooring in living room and bedrooms. Stone House sits on a large plot of land with a fire pit for guests to enjoy (however, in the winter the fire pit might be covered in snow). You will appreciate a fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher and a master bedroom with a California King bed with a wide view of the water. The dining room area seats 6 people around the table and come with 2 breakfast bar stools as well to accommodate guests.
What is nice about Stone House is that the bedrooms are split by the kitchen, making privacy a bit more achievable. Perhaps sharing with another family of 4 is an option. Both bedrooms with twin beds can be converted to kings for your convenience.Just let the office know when you book, so we can have the beds converted upon your arrival.
So, grab the dog, and come and enjoy East Lake! With gorgeous sunsets resting on the pleasant all-sports lake, you will create memories to cherish!

Jill, we are glad that Stone House was a great fit for your family. A private dock, swimming on property and a rowboat help to make this a great vacation spot. Stone House sits on a large plot of land with a fire pit for guests to enjoy. We are sorry to hear about the dog hair. A super clean property is always our goal, but obviously this time our cleaner missed out. When you work with us again, if ever there is something you find that is wrong or a problem, please call us immediately and we will get someone out to correct the issue.
