Mind the Property Line


Property Line: Please stay on our property, the access road or the shoreline. All other areas are privately owned. The North Property Line is just one step off the deck when you exit through the screened porch. Best to head to the beach from the front door or the lakeside sliders. Take the path marked "BEACH" to the wood side fire-pit. Just past the fire-pit is the stairway to the beach. That is also a good marker of our North Property Line. We own the beach South of the stairs until you just about reach the next set of stairs. You are safely on our beach if you stay between the two stairways. The covered pavilion in the woods to the north is NOT ours.

About the Lake- Safety First

Lake Michigan Information

Never Swim Alone

Lakes are typically large, wide and deep. Even when the lake is crowded with swimmers and boaters, you should never venture out alone. Always swim with a buddy or in a group. Be aware of who is in your group and where they are at all times. Lake rip tides can pull a swimmer under and away from shore very quickly. Learn to recognize lake wave actions so you can avoid potentially dangerous tide situations.

Keep Children Safe

If you take children to swim in the lake, keep them within your grasp at all times. Strong underwater currents can catch youngsters by surprise and pull them under in seconds. Always have your children wear life vests in the water. Be prudent about allowing them into the water after a meal, or if they are over-heated. Take along a beach umbrella to provide shade and a cool place for children to rest between swims. Use sunscreen at all times.

Watch For Weather Hazards

Lake hazards can come from the sky above. Read or listen to a weather report for the lake area. Leave the water at the first sound of thunder and don't re-enter the water until at least 20 minutes after the last clap of thunder has passed. Evacuate the beach entirely in the event of lightning. In wavy conditions don't swim without a life vest and don't go out deeper than were you can touch the bottom. Use common sense, if the water looks too rough, don't go in at all.
