One of my clients almost bought on Dow Lake in Orchard Lake MI a few years ago.  There are very few homes on this tiny lake.  It is one way to have access to Cass Lake without all the traffic and noise.  It is a great little lake with lake homes that have some space.  If you have questions feel free to text, call or email me at (248) 310-6239 or
