If fishing is for you, the lake is loaded with Large Mouth Bass, Yellow Perch, Sunfish, Bluegill and Channel Catfish. You will enjoy tossing your catch from this clean water on the grill.

Below are some pictures of our Michigan Lake Vacation Rental Cottage.

Some times we refer to our house as a cabin or a cottage, but it is an insulated, all-year-around home, in fact, I was told by an builder that it is built like a fort.

All-the-Fish-You-Can-Eat at the Lake Inn, Columbiaville, (about 5-8 minutes), serve the best fish around here. (You have choice of Cod or Walleye) on a Friday nights - about $8.00).

You will not regret sampling their scrumptious, generous serving of home made Carrot Cake. One piece of this tasty dessert is enough to serve 2-3 people, I am not kidding - Dave and I shared a piece of cake and had leftovers, which I brought home in a "doggy bag". Delish!

A train aficionado? Not far away you and your little train lovers can have the train ride of your life at Huckleberry Junction

Biking? Oh yes, check out the new, scenic Bike Trails at Southern Links Trailway, only minutes away from our vacation rental home.

Blue Lake House

Hemingway Lake View


We had a great week at your Blue Lake House on Hemingway Lake. Everything was clean and comfortable.

The breezes from the lake were amazing. The weather could not have been better. It was a pleasure meeting you and God Bless You, with your venture.

PS We just love the view of the lake from you deck - feels like Northern Michigan, when I was kid.

Lake View from Deck

We enjoyed our stay at your Blue Lake House. Everything is so well situated both inside and outside. Hemingway Lake is so quiet and kind of hidden away.

I particularly liked the closeness to our home. I also love the flowers and that everything was meticulously well kept. I enjoyed walking around barefooted.

We ventured into Columbiaville and Lapeer, which is so close by and great for restaurants and shopping.

We would like to come back and stay longer.

By the water

Couldn't have picked a better place to be. The kids loved fishing off the dock and swimming in the lake.

We loved the cozy home and the "up north" feeling without the drive.

As soon as the kids woke up they were on the dock fishing. What wonderful memories they have to keep.

Thank you Ann for letting us stay at your home. We will be back next summer. This place will be our family tradition.

What a wonderful place to spend some time. We visited our former cottage across the lake from 40 years ago.

Amazing how much things have changed, yet we have lots of good memories of staying at Hemingway Lake and what it used to be.

Caught 4 bass - this is a super place to stay. We will be back.

My husband and I decided to make the Blue Lake House our Honeymoon Getaway.

We are so glad we chose The Blue Lake House instead of an expensive vacation somewhere else. It was peaceful and relaxing after all the stress of preparing for the wedding.

It was so nice to find all the surprises left for us. The cookies, the coffee cake, the delicious bottle of wine and of course, the soap and lotion.

We surely enjoyed the pontoon rides around Hemingway Lake and the beautiful scenery.

It was also great gazing at the flames of the fire pit, as we were lounging in the comfortable chairs by the fire.

This is such a quiet and peaceful lake with the wonderful feeling of being “up north”, but with the benefit of not having to drive so far.

Blessings to all who visit here!

More Reflections on Hemingway Lake.

Hemingway Lake is not only beautiful, but it is the second cleanest lake in Lapeer County. It's great for all-year-around sports and fishing.



Thank you so very much for our stay at your Blue Lake House. We had a great time and it was so relaxing.

Cruising around the lake in the pontoon boat was wonderful too. It is a beautiful lake and home.

Thanks again,

We loved our stay at the Blue Lake House! From the Pontoon boat rides to the camp fires and bike rides. It was a perfect week end getaway.

Everything was clean and had all the comforts of home.

The flowers were beautiful too. Thanks Anne! :-)
