Lake Orion water front properties

The size of Lake Orion is 470 acres..  Lake Orion is great lake because it is not a round lake. I would say it is more like a u-shaped lake with many fingers going off in different directions.  The reason I say it is a U shaped lake is because there is a peninsula that splits the lake in half.  The peninsula is about  three quarter the length of the lake.  It is like there are two good sized lakes side by side.  Add to the 5 fingers that go off the lake in different directions you have a lake that isn't boring.  Plus there are five islands too!

There are canals and little bays that many lake front homes are situated on.  On those canals you get the pleasure of living on the water but with little boat noise and no boat traffic.   Lake Orion Oakland County is a public all sports lake.  It would be classified as one of the bigger Oakland County lakes.   Like most of Michigan inland lakes lake traffic during the week is quiet.  During the weekend all the Lake Orion homeowners come out to play on the lake.

Many of the waterfront homes are on city water and sewer.

Lake Orion General info

Lake Orion Homes Orion MI

 

Living on a lake is a whole different life style.  Over all the lake life style is a little different than subdivision.  Most lake home owners know their neighbors or other people on the lake from seeing them out on the lake.  I would say the lake life style is more social.  Though there are many lake home owners that keep to themselves.  So Lake Home owners may not even own a boat.  To me that is foreign....live on a lake and not own a boat????

There are always people like that on a lake.  Some have gotten older and no longer want to maintain a boat, some are just happy looking at the lake and the birds, ducks, swans on the lake.  I have had many clients that do not have boats and are so happy on the lake.  They are just more relaxed because of the lake.

Many lakes in Southeastern Michigan will have a gathering spot.  What I mean by that is a place where boats and people tend to hang out together.  They may not know each other too well, but they may talk a little when anchored close by.  If it is a mucky lake they may anchor in a deep spot to swim.  If there are islands on the lake they may park on the shallow end of the island.  Some lakes has shallow areas or sunken islands that lake home owners anchor at.  Some stay to themselves with their family and kids.  Other lake home owners mingle and chat with the other people on the boats.
