Here are more photos of Cedar Island Lake in White Lake Michigan. I always like my buyers to know about the lake and neighborhoods they by in.
Cedar Island Lake is 134,144, or 169 acres (depending on which source you trust). Cedar Island Lake is not a round lake. I would say it is more like a u-shaped lake with many fingers going off in different directions. There are canals and little bays that many lake front homes are situated on. On those little bays and canals you get the pleasure of living on the water but with little boat noise and no boat traffic. Cedar Island Lake Oakland County is a all sports lake. It would be classified as a small lake. Like most of Michigan inland lakes lake traffic during the week is quiet. During the weekend all the Cedar Island homeowners come out to play on the lake.
Cedar Island Lake location
Cedar Island Lake is located in White Lake Township MI. Cedar Island Lake is located south of Elizabeth Lake Rd and M-59, East of Bogie Lake Road, north of Cooley Lake Rd and West of Union Lake Rd
Cedar Island Lake Public Access
Located on the west side of the lake (off Oxbox Lake Rd) It has a hard surface ramp but only has 4 parking spaces. Which is good for residents because there are not a lot of non lake boaters on the water because of the lack of parking space.
Cedar Island Lake Fishing
The maximum depth is 72 feet deep though much of the lake is shallow. The water is fairly clear, but it is not a lake that you can see the bottom. Cedar Island Lake has Crappie, Bluegill, rock bass, and Largemouth Bass. Some walleye, some northern pike, some perch, and some smallmouth bass.
Cedar Island Lake properties are a mixed bag. Some are small old Oakland County lake cottages, some are beautiful new built Oakland county Lakefront homes. There are 3200 square foot colonials with a walkout basements. Geoffery Fieger has a lake cottage there as of 2011. There is even an Modern V shaped house that has an all glass front.
Cedar Island Lake homes average in size about 2000- 2500 square feet. There are quite a few tri and quad-level homes on the lake. But there are smaller ranches and much bigger colonials. There are some homes on the lake that are weekend cottages for people that live elsewhere, but most of the homes are year round homes.
Some of Cedar Island waterfront homes are on fairly flat ground but there are some that sit above the lake and require steps to get down.
Between January & October 20, 2012 here's what sold on the lake.

Cedar Island General info
I have spent time on Cedar Island Lake myself. There are multiple subdivison associations but no overall lake association. There are dams at both ends of the lake controlling the inflow and out flow. The lake level doesn't vary very much over the whole summer. There are several areas on the lake that the lake residents come to intermingle and enjoy each other's company.
These "gathering spots" are shallow areas. One area actually has a volleyball net set up on it. Usually there is 5 or more boat parked there socializing.
We all say we hope we can do this or that and life flies by. I am sure you have many examples of what you wish you had done from years past. We all have those little regrets. Life is so short. I myself can speak from experience. I lost my lovely wife Marianne after a 22 year battle with cancer. She was a great lady and I felt we lived life to the fullest. But I still have a few regrets that we didn't do a few things.
I have heard the same thing from so many older people. Regrets about little things or choices that they should have made. Life is short. I believe we should live life to the fullest. After my wife died I made the decision that I would live life a little more. I loved the water. I decided that I wanted a boat again. I had always loved the water. I now live on a lake in White Lake. I am living life.
The question is are you? What are your dreams? What do you really want to do? Do you want to live on a lake? Do you want to wake up to the sun rising on the water? Do you want to see the mist rising off the lake in the early fall? Do you want your kids to grow up on the lake? Do you want family gatherings on the lake?
