On the other side of the lake there are some 1000 square foot homes that were built between 1940 -1960's.

The 138 acre measurement came from a water quality paper I found on line. The 100 acre measurement came from a private source that listed all the Livingston County Michigan Lakes. I have found that source to be wrong before. So Rush Lake Hamburg MI is somewhere between 100 - 138 acres in size.
It has four very small islands that add up to be about 2 acres in size. The mean depth of the lake is 4.4' deep. There is about 22112 feet of shoreline including several canals, but not the islands.
The children on the lake go to Pinckney Schools.
Like most Livingston County MI Lakes there are not a lot of wide open spaces or privacy. Most of the waterfront homes are not widely spaced apart.

I have taken all the pictures of the lake but I can not get great weather pictures because I'm not there on the lake all the time. Do you have a great picture of a rainbow or lightning over the lake and wouldn't mind sharing it? I would love to show it off on the website. You can send it to email@example.com
Rush Lake Location
Rush Lake is located in Hamburg Township Livingston County MI. It is South of Rush Lake Rd, East of Pettysville Rd and North of 36.
I will speak from my own experience. My wife and I lived in a Livonia subdivision for 22 years. I enjoyed living in Livonia for so many years. I had a good life. I enjoyed working in my garden. On weekends we went out with friends. We went out to dinner. We went to local festivals. We went up north to friend's places on lakes. We did not live on a lake. We went to other places than our home to have fun.
That is one of the main differences of lake living. Lake homes are the fun places to go to. Your lake home is the place your friends, your family will like to come to. If you are like so many lake home owners you may not want to go anywhere else. The years of going to festival like Arts, Beats, and Eats because you have nothing else to do may be gone.
What the difference of city living versus owning a lake home is that your lake home is a good destination. Your lake home is the go to fun place. I have heard so many lake home owners say that they sometimes pass up graduations, wedding, and family gatherings because they do not want to miss out on a beautiful day at the lake. I went to Jimmy Buffet for years. One summer we were sitting out tailgating in 90+ degree heat. All I could think of is being on the lake. The next year we did not go back to Jimmy Buffet's concert. I would rather be at the lake.
So it is your choice. Do you want your next lake home to be fun place or would you rather live in a subdivision and have to go out of your home to have fun. What would you rather do? I myself moved to a lake home.
Other nearby lakes are Bass Lake, Mohican Lake, Tioga Lake, Cordley Lake, and Oneida Lake.

Here is what a previous client said about me!
My Husband and I have been in our new home for about a year now and we both feel that it would not have been possible without your help. We wanted to write and let you know that we appreciate everything you have done for us. I want to thank you for showing us around and negotiating to help us get an excellent home that meets all of my needs. I was impressed with your knowledge of the neighborhoods, schools, businesses, parks, recreation, restaurants and home prices. You are my #1 Realtor and I will recommend you to my family, friends and any one else who need to buy or sell real estate."
