Brighton Lake MI

So you can find almost any style, any size, and any age of home on Brighton Lake.  On the north and west side of the lake you will generally find more uniformity with large homes.  In some spots on Brighton Lake Road there are a few homes that are close to the road.

Brighton Lake Genoa Township - Brighton MI information

Brighton Lake is in both Brighton and Genoa Township.  The lake properties are highly sought after for many reasons.  The closeness of downtown Brighton, the easy highway access, and being a large 600 acres private all sports lake are huge draws for lakefront buyers.  So you will be paying a little more for lake properties than some of the surrounding lakes like East or West Crooked Lake.

Brighton Lake Location

Brighton Lake is located in Brighton Township Livingston County MI.  It is south of Brighton Rd/Main St, north of Brighton Lake Rd and east of Bauer Rd.

Livingston County lakes vary so much from lake to lake and even from one side of the lake to the other.  You could have a sandy lake bottom on one side of the lake and mucky on the other.  Some lakes are all sandy bottoms.  Others are all mucky.  The easiest way to check whether it is sandy or mucky is to get into the lake. That is why it is smart to buy a lake home when the ice is off the lake. Sometimes the lake bottom is sandy for 10 or 15 feet then gets mucky.  Usually if the lake listing does not proclaim sandy lake bottom....then it does not have it.

The next part of lake frontage that you may want to consider is vegetation or vegetation free lake front.  Usually a mucky lake front invites lily pads and cattails.  Because of DNR rules you cannot just go out and rip out lily pads and vegetation in front of the home.  So do not buy a lake home thinking you can change the waterfront drastically.  Sure some lake home buyers do the midnight lily pad weeding or put down chemicals at night to kill the vegetation....but it is illegal and still will take several years to do.

Sometimes if the lake has not been used in years there will be a little bit of vegetation out front.  That is usually easily cleaned up.  This usually is the case when the sellers are older and have not used the lake in years.  By the time the kids and grandkids use the lakefront all summer it will be clean again.  Many lake home owners have a large rake (a landscape rake) to rake up seaweed, and rocks.  It is a great tool to have.


So many of the good lake homes get sold before the average buyer even gets to see them.  I have seen homes sell in under a week.  The good lake homes go quick.  If you want the latest lake home listings emailed to you daily so you can look at them at your leisure.
