- Smoking is not permitted inside the house, and marijuana smoking is strictly prohibited on the premises.

- As we are located by the lake, our water may have a distinct mineral scent. This is common in lake houses and is completely safe.

- Please be mindful of our sewage system and avoid flushing anything other than toilet paper, as the city sewage by the lake is sensitive.

- If you're interested in a leisurely outing on the lake, we offer pontoon boat rentals at $150 per night (only for summer season).

- During the May-June season, lake flies are abundant. They are harmless but can be an annoyance. They typically disappear within two weeks and are a food source for fish in the lake. It is important to keep windows and doors closed at night, as they are attracted to bright lights and can enter through screen doors.

Welcome to Good Times Lake Homes! Our lake house on Tichigan Lake is the perfect destination for families looking to unwind, relax, and make lasting memories.

As a regular family with big dreams, we know firsthand the joy of owning a lake home. And we love nothing more than sharing that joy with others. Hosting guests at our lake house isn't just a business for us - it's a way to teach our kids financial literacy, responsibility, and the importance of hard work. They're always eager to help out with chores and cleaning to ensure that our guests have the best possible stay.

But it's not all about work - we also love adding personal touches to our home to make your stay extra special. Sometimes, you may even find scavenger hunts set up by our kids for your family to enjoy!

Whether you're looking to spend your days lounging by the lake or exploring the surrounding area, Good Times Lake Homes has something for everyone.
