Ore Lake Hamburg MI

Ore Lake is part of a chain of lakes, although you cannot drive big boats to the other lakes.  It is connected via the Huron River but there is a low bridge under M-36 that you can't get a big boat under.   You can only get a small kayak or canoe or small boats through the viaduct via the Huron River.

My guess is that on the weekend there is heavy boat traffic on the lake.  But there is always smooth water on any Southeastern Michigan Lake is you are up early enough ( before 10 or wait until dinner time).

Save thousands and thousands of dollars when selling your home.  I have some of the lowest home selling commissions.  Why pay full commission to a real estate agent and give away your hard earned money.  Are you willing  to over pay for selling your home?  Give me a text or call today 248-310-6239 to see how much your home is worth and how much you can keep in your pocket.

Ore Lake homes Hamburg Michigan

The lake is what I would call a sleepy lake.  It still has quite a few of the older cottages.  Lake buyers are buying properties and tearing the homes down and putting up newer, bigger homes.  But right now there are quite a few of the older cottages that are 1200 square foot or less.  So Ore Lakefront homes for sale are a mixed lot. But there are lots of small cottages with dirt roads around the lake.  Ore Lake home styles are:

      • bungalows and ranches make up the majority of the waterfront homes
      • cape cods
      • colonial style homes
      • there are very few split levels

We all have dreams and goals that we hope will make our life better.  Is living on a lake one of them.  I call it living the dream.  Do you want to retire somewhere warm?  Do you want to retire on some island?   My clients that have just bought or bought a lake home in the last two years say to me "why didn't I do this years ago.”.   I myself can't believe I am living the dream.

The ability to go swimming when I want.  The ability to untie the boat and go for a little cruise around the lake. All those dreams have become reality.  They can become reality for you too.  Do you want to be able to come home at the end of the day and relax on your deck or patio and look out at the lake?

Many grandparents or parents that have kids that do not visit to often want to have a fun place for their kids or grandkids to come back to.  Living the dream may be having your friends or family over the weekend.  It could be relaxing in the sun.  There are so many fun things to do on the lake.  Your lake home is your vacation.  Many people on the lake think why go on vacation when we live on the lake?  Why drive 3 1/2 hours to go up north when you have paradise in your back yard. 

I know some lake people that miss weddings, graduation parties because it is a beautiful day on the lake.  They are living the dream.  The kids jumping off the dock.  Your child catching that big fish or your grandchild catching their first fish.  Family playing volley ball, corn hole, or ladder ball.  Laughing and having fun at the lake.  That is what lake living is all about.

Are you ready to live the dream? Give me a call to start your lake home search today (248) 310-6239
