Features of the Knotty Pine Lodge

  • 3,700 sq ft of finished living space with knotty pine planking on every wall and every ceiling throughout the house - with one exception:  The ceiling of the Gathering-Game Room has special sound-deadening materials to help acoustically isolate it from the 2nd floor BRs above it.


  • 7 BRs and 7.5 BAs - with one wheelchair friendly BR-BA suite on the ground floor, and one wheelchair friendly BR-BA suite on the walkout level.  A Stannah chairlift connects the main floor with the walkout level, and a transport wheelchair is on hand for Guests.


  • All 7 BRs have very comfy Queen beds with thick memory foam toppers;  3 BRs also have Twin Bunkbeds.


  • The BAs in the two wheelchair friendly BR-BA suites each have 3x5 roll-in showers, robust grab bars at the commode, and knee room 36" counter/sink.  Bonus for parents of toddlers: These large 3x5 roll-in showers make a great spot for Pack-N-Plays at night!


  • Fully stocked with dinnerware, pots/pans, paper towels & much more. See Detailed List of All Items Provided.


  • The open concept Kitchen-Dining space features a dining table that when its two leaves are inserted can seat up to 16 (extra chairs provided).  With barstools at the Bar-Buffet Counter and the adjacent sofa seating in the Great Room, 26 people may be seated at one time for meals.


  • The seating area in the Great Room adjacent to the open dining & kitchen area has two sofas and a loveseat.

  • The main level Covered Deck measures 430 sq ft and has outstanding views of Stone Lake - just 25 feet away. The 36' x 12' deck has a privacy wall at the one end where there is a neighboring house that makes the deck very private.  The deck also features "see-thru" stainless steel cable deck railing to enhance teh view of the lake. 


  • The property is equipped with Comcast Xfinity's fastest available "Extreme" cable Internet service combined with a custom Wifi Mesh network with multiple Access Points that results in strong Wifi signals throughout the house, deck, BBQ grill area and even the firepit.  


  • A huge 25' x 35' playscape for the little ones is set among the shade trees on the south side of the house with adjacent seating for adults.


  • A basketball hoop - easily adjustable from 10' down to 7' without tools so also great for the little ones - is right at the driveway.


  • 12 bikes - a mix of adult and kid's sizes - for Guests to enjoy on the trails in our private 47 acres of woods and along the quiet streets of the Village of Cassopolis.


  • Its own 24-foot Pontoon Boating Pkg (optional), which includes 7 sit-on-top kayaks (5 adult, 2 child) and a row boat.


  • There is off-street parking right at the house to accommodate 7-8 vehicles, with space for even more if some are blocked in.


  • A Firepit overlooks Stone Lake and has ample seating.


  • A sloped hard-surface path from the walkout level concrete patio leads to the firepit, and continues to the lakeside 12' x 12' deck and on to the boat dock/  With assistance a wheelchair user may traverse this path all the way to the Pontoon Boat.


  • 47 Acres of private woods with trails for exploring just across the street (shared with our other 3 vacation lodges).
