About the property

Open floor plan with expansive view of Gun Lake

Get that summer lake vacation you deserve at Gun Lake - Anchor Cove Escape, where family fun begins! This property is located on a quiet cove of Gun Lake, a 2,800 acre all sports lake with amazing landscaping, hard sandy bottom and navy blue waters. This home is nestled nicely into a lake front cove making it private, quiet and safe for children playing out in the yard or water, no need to worry about high traffic or crossing a busy road to get to the water. This home is sure to become your yearly summer vacation spot with its 75' of lake frontage and hard sandy bottom. There is plenty of parking unlike most rentals, we can accommodate up to five cars. Enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the dock or while sitting on the deck having dinner or enjoying your favorite summer beverage. There is plenty of space with three bedrooms all located on the upper level. The master bedroom sleeps up to five guests, there is one king bed, a twin bunk bed and trundle bed. The second and third bedrooms both sleep up to four guests, with a layout of full over full bunk beds. There are two full baths located on upper level and a 1/2 bath located on lower level. Not much time is generally spent inside, but if you do, there you will also find great views of the lake with ample seating. There are restaurants, gas stations and a grocery store less than ten minutes away. Should mother nature rain on your parade or you just take a break from the lake to venture out, the charming town of Hastings is just a short drive away to enjoy even more restaurants, cute little shops and even a small movie theater. Or try your luck at the Gun Lake Casino located just twenty minutes from Anchor Cove Escape. There is so much to see and do around the lake such as, horseback riding, bike trails or go check out the public beach at Yankee Springs, there you will find an expansive beach, playgrounds, beach volleyball and even a giant inflatable water slide.

Don't miss out on what could be one of the best summer vacations yet, filled with a pocket full of memories!

Not a single improvement can be made - expectations were surpassed

  • 5 of 5

First, we are a very critical family and over the past few years we have stayed in many houses. This is the first house we have discussed going back to.

Gun Lake is amazing. It is very large. We had 0 issues with other boats or any types of crowds at all. The water was beautiful and the water right off the dock was perfect for kids aged 3-11 to play in... plus the grownups enjoyed it too.

The house is very well taken care of. Clean and well kept. It is better than the pictures can show. The main areas allow for many different group settings and were terrific for the nights of games.

Finally - the owner was a delight to work with. She answered all questions and helped out in every way. I made many mistakes and she was there to help out each and every time. The contract process was easy, the payment process was easy and we got our deposit back very quickly. Perfect service!

Thank you for a great week!

This property was absolutely wonderful! We had such a great stay.

I went with a group of friends. The house has a wonderful layout for friends or families. Three bedrooms. The master has a King, twin bunk bed, and trundle with an attached bathroom. There are two other bedrooms that each have a full bunk bed, meaning full bed over full bed. these two share one upstairs bathroom.

The house is immaculately furnished and very well stocked with everything you would need. we had ample towels, clean sheets, and all the cooking supplies you could imagine. We LOVED the dock and being right on the lake. The lake is right outside the door and there is a beautiful grill to enjoy on the back deck.

While we were there it was very buggy, but if you're going to a lake house that shouldn't scare you! Not a single bug in the house, but you may need bugspray outside.

The property manager was wonderful and very responsive. Cell service can be very tough, but we found the wifi to be very reliable. The next door neighbors were a bit noisy, but it didn't bother us much.

Overall, if you are looking for an AMAZING lake house, look no further. Worth every penny.

very warm and welcoming!

  • 4 of 5

Lived in this rental for almost 2 months for business. Very spacious and welcoming house. They've thought of everything from amenities to entertainment to make your stay enjoyable and welcoming. Property manager also quick to respond if any issues. I was here during the winter, very quiet but during summer, I expect there's a lot of neighborhood fun with it being directly on the lake. Beautiful views1

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We found this property just as listed and very clean. The lake is gorgeous and very close to pizza, ice cream, grocery stores, and restaurants including Bay Pointe. It's a fun beautiful restaurant with a gorgeous view with options to eat inside or on the perfect patio just a minute from the house. Michelle is great to work with and very prompt I. Answering inquiries and questions. We will definitely stay here again!!!
