Mandon Lake White Lake Township MI information

It has been a two years since I talked to one of the home owners on the lake, but if I remember right they have an unwritten rule that there can only be 2 or 4 boats (can't remember which) doing water sports such as skiing or tubing.  He said everybody was pretty good about it and took turns skiing or tubing.

  • All sports lake                      Yes
  • Private                                Yes
  • Size                                    26 acres
  • Maximum Depth                  18 feet
  • Public Access                       No
  • Public Beach                        No
  • Wake restrictions                 Unknown
  • Water Source                       Spring fed

The average depth of the lake is 8 foot.  The North east side of the lake is sandy.  The west and southwest side of the lake is mucky according to a resident.  The lake is affectionately know as the "Mighty Mandon", because despite its small size all sports are permitted. The children on the lake go to Walled Lake Schools.

Mandon Lakefront homes are a mixed bag of homes built from the 1920's to the 2000's.  You won't find any mega mansions or lakefront homes with lots of frontage or acreage.  Most of the Mandon Lake properties range from 40' to 80' of lake frontage.  There are a few that are up over 100' of lake frontage.  The biggest one I know of is 3/4 of an acre.

The largest lakefront home is a 2600 square foot colonial and the smallest one goes down to a 700 square foot ranch.  There are ranches, bungalows, split level, and colonials on the lake.

Lake house buyer bonus

There is plenty of lake access homes near Mandon Lake.          

Lake homes are more expensive than a home off the lake.  It is just that simple.  Sometimes they are a $100,000 more.  Sometimes what you really want in a lake home is something you cannot financially afford.  Or you may not be able to afford the lake you want.  So what are your alternatives?  One of the best alternatives to living on the lake is a canal front home.  

You can usually get a canal front home for anywhere from $50,000 to a $100,000 less than you could buy a lakefront home.  I have seen beautiful canal front homes that were so much cheaper than a full lakefront home. This gives you the ability to be on the lake, be able to have a boat on the lake but at a cheaper price.  

That is one of the biggest issues is that some lake home buyer expectations are much higher than the price they have in mind.  Lake homes cost so much more than a regular home in a subdivision.  Some large all sports lakes have homes on them that command a $200,000 to $400,000 premium.  Many of the lake home in the $500,000 + range are custom built.  Some of these home sellers have torn down an old home and rebuilt from the ground up.  

Sometimes home buyers have to give up the dream of that perfect home to get a home on a lake.  You may not have that luxurious home that you always wanted, but you may have a great lake home.  It is sometimes the choices you have to make.  Many times there is a limited amount of lake homes and choices.  So it is about being realistic.  So if you want to wake up to a view of the lake you may have to lower your expectations went buying a lake home.  If you are having trouble finding a lake home give me a call I can help (248) 310-6239
