Mill Lake in Orion MI is not a large lake in fact is is only about 18 -20 acres in size.  It is an overflow lake for Voorheis Lake. The lake varies in size with the water levels. The lake is electric motors only. A lake resident I talked to said the lake was like a flood plain for Voorheis Lake. After a rain he said Mills Lake sometimes quickly rises 12 -18" and then goes down later.

He also said that the boat traffic on the lake was minimal. So it must be a quiet lake.  The children that live on the lake go to Orion Schools.

Mill Lakefront homes for sale. I am guessing that there are only about 20 -25 homes on Mill Lake.  There are two roads around the lake.  There is the busy paved Balwin Rd where there are two lake homes.  One is a large 3400 square foot brick ranch with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 car garage, and a walkout basement.  The other home is a small ranch that I am guess is between 1200 - 1500 square foot.

The other road is a dirt road called Mahopac Rd.  There are mainly small bunglaows and ranches on Mill Lake that were built during the years 1930 -1962.  Most of Mill lakefront homes range in size from 900 - 1700 square feet.  One larger homes  is a 1946 built home that was added on to and remodeled.  It is now a 2900 square foot 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 3 car garage colonial.  

Mill Lake front properties range from 35' to 500' of lake frontage.  Though most of them are under 100' foot.   If you are looking for a Orion lake home give me a call and I will help you everyway I can. My cell is (313) 310-9855.

Mill Lake Fishing            

There is very littile fishing on the lake and little boat traffic. A residents grandson has caught some large fish.

The number of foreclosures and lake foreclosures has gone down since 2009.  Banks now are pricing them  agressively most of the time.  In 2011 it is not unusual for most bank owned lake foreclosures to get multiple offers.  So be sure to ask me for the recent sold home prices on the lake.  You don't want to bid too low and lose the lake house you want!
