Orion Township Lakes Little Cedar Lake MI

Little Cedar Lake in Orion Twp Michigan was once part of Indianwood Lake until it was damned up 30 years ago. It is a small paddle boat lake.   Litte Cedar lake is right across the street from Manitou Lake.  If Manitou Lake is 109 acres I would estimate Litte Cedar Lake is only 7-10 acres.

Little Cedar Lake Oakland County MI

Southeastern Michigan lakes have so many different lake bottoms.  Some are mucky, some are sandy, and some are full of vegetation.  They 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.

Custom image 1The 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.

You will notice that if the sellers are older sometimes 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.

Here is what a previous client said about me!


"Dear Russ,
It´s been 2 months since we moved into our new Canton condo and we
are very happy with it. In the beginning we didn´t even
know what we needed but with your help, guidance and
patience we chose the best condo in the area with the best
price according to our needs. We were looking all over.  We looked in Novi, Warrren, Canton, Farmington Hills.  But we finally found our Canton condo.  We appreciate everything you
have done for us. We would recommend you without hesitation
to everyone we know who wants to buy or sell a house. "
