We live in a community. It’s very friendly, open, relaxing and enjoyable. It’s not a lake home and it’s not a cottage. You really have to come experience what it’s all about.

The Morse family

One thing that I really love is that everything that we could possibly need is on the main floor. All the other bedrooms and downstairs are for family and friends to come visit.

Harry & Ann

Through summer, we’re here every weekend. Off season, we’re here at least once a month. We like to eat at the local restaurants and the kids love the ice cream shop in town.

The Rusteburg Family

The amenities, river, boat club, hiking trails, bike paths and the outdoor living… this was the perfect fit for us. The one thing I noticed immediately was the nature.

The Clancy family

You could go to Lake Geneva, Michigan or Florida and have the same thing this has, but this is close to home. Why go out of your way when what you want is 45 minutes away?

Larry & Karen

I was very impressed with the quality of construction, the quality of the finishes, and how much you get for your money just an hour from Chicago.

Bill & Cindy

I love the size – it’s the perfect weekend place. The homes look like whimsical cottages with screened-in porches just 50 feet from the river. What’s not to like?

Jeffrey Gerald

I couldn’t believe the quality of the docks. I’ve been boating my whole life, and this marina can match and exceed almost any marina you’ll see on Lake Michigan.

The Franco family

It’s perfectly private out here, yet we have access to the downtown area. It’s got the best of both worlds and downtown Ottawa has become incredibly beautiful.
