This is our 14th year of renting our house located between Gun Lake and Hastings. This 23 year old home has 2400 sq. ft., with 300 feet of frontage on Head Lake, a sandy, all-sports lake in Barry County. It is 45 min. from downtown
Grand Rapids/ Kalamazoo and 15 min. from Hastings.
The house has beds for 13 people, but can easily accommodate our limit of 16 people because of the large bedrooms (will make exceptions to our limit for family groups/children). There is also a leather sectional that has two recliners in the family room. The house is beautifully decorated, with a finished walk-out basement, and has French doors to the lake on all 3 levels. Decks on 2 levels, and a front porch with popasan chairs.
The lakefront offers you privacy for sunbathing with a sandy beach for kids to play on. The lake gets deep gradually and does not have any drop-offs. We enjoy a southern exposure allowing you the opportunity to sunbathe on the dock, the beach, or the deck. Great swimming lake.
Come and enjoy the quiet and serenity of this country setting as you soak in the hot tub on the deck overlooking the lake. It's so quiet it will make you feel like you have your own private lake; and with 300' of frontage, no roads anywhere in sight, a long driveway, and, more parking space then you'll need, this place is truly unique among lakefront properties. Feel free to bring your own boat, to launch at the house's PRIVATE BOAT LAUNCH. Large boats might not be able to be launched because the lake is shallow close to the shore.
Much of the lake shore is still natural; lined with trees and not houses. Wake up to deer and go to sleep listening to the frogs and crickets.
Experience all the comforts of a home away from home from the moment you arrive and drive right into the attached 2-stall garage to unload. Relax in the lounge chairs on the 40' deck with a tall iced tea. As you soak up the view, you'll take those first deep breaths of relaxation and feel the responsibilities and cares slipping away.
This is an excellent fishing lake! Lots of bass! Usually one of our guests tells us every year about the big one that they caught.
