What is great about Dow Lake in Orchard Lake MI is that it is attached via canal to Cass Lake. So you have over 1280 acres of Cass Lake to play on and then come back to your quiet lake. It is an all sports lake but it is so small knowbody can tube or jet ski on it because it is a no wake lake. You go out to Cass Lake to do that. So Dow Lake has the charm and quiet of a small pond yet access to Oakland County's largest lake.
The children on the lake go to West Bloomfield Schools.
I believe there are only 7 or 8 homes on the lake. There are at least 2 gated homes on the lake. Dow Lake properties have some space and privacy.
The three Dow Lakefront homes that I know information about are:
They all sit on about 2 acres.
Have a great sunset photo? Or a good skiing, or action photo of the lake? Or even a photo of your family's fishing catch? I am looking for great photos to put on the website if you would like to share. You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org Be sure to tell me which lake it is from. Thanks in advance for helping make this the best lake website in Southeastern Michigan

Dow Lake is located in Orchard Lake Village Oakland County MI. It is north of Commerce Rd, east of Hiller Rd and west of Orchard Lake Rd . The lake is on the south end of Cass Lake and to the north of Orchard Lake.
Do you want a public Michigan lake or a private lake? A private lake is a lake where the general public cannot put a boat on the lake. A public lake may have a DNR access point where there are a certain number of parking spots to put boats in. A public lake may be on a chain of lakes where there may be no public DNR access but the public still has access to the lake because they can get from one lake to the other. For example that would be the Portage chain of Lakes near Hamburg in Livingston County.
Some lakes have marinas on them like Cass Lake, or Elizabeth Lake. Elizabeth Lake is considered a private lake but there sure are quite a few boats on it. The bigger the lake, the more likely that there are going to be a lot of boats on it. Sometimes home owners will allow their friends to dock their boat at their house. I have seen homes on lake in Oakland and Livingston County where there are two and three different boats tied up at one dock. You know that they are not driving two pontoon boats around.
As I tell most lake home buyers....if the lake is a good sized all sports lake it is going to be busy on the weekend. It is just that way. Some of the smaller all sports lakes are quieter. So private or public is a choice you have to make. Remember if you are just looking at private lakes and cannot find the home you want then you may want to expand your search to public lakes in Southeastern Michigan

Here is what a previous client had to say about me!
"I first started looking at real estate listings online nearly a year ago, but at first I thought I´d never really buy one. I hadn´t been paying attention and thought I still couldn´t afford to buy a place. I also had no experience in buying a home and I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing before I bought. For most questions I would search online, the topic had been discussed on Russ´ blog. Not only that, he was local. Over the summer, I finally decided to start physically looking at houses and Russ was the only choice.
My preferred method of contact was email and he always responded in a timely fashion. He was patient with this first-time home buyer, and worked with me through my initial bid process. I was surprised when they accepted the bid! The transaction went smoothly, with Russ patiently answering any questions and concerns I had. From the first time we looked at houses to the closing was exactly one month. I´ve been here five months now and people still marvel at what I got for the price I paid. When I requested a plumber, he was able to provide one was lived close by and was economical."
Thanks for everything, Russ.
