Mansion on the lake, cheaper than an old house!

Executive Lakefront home on Portage Lake for rent.  Fully furnished.  The rent is $500 per person, (base upon 6 person occupancy, minimum) plus gas and electric.  There is no water bill due to the house being on well water.  Available for a school year lease only (from late August, 2021 to early May, 2022).  If you rent this house at $500 per person for 8 months, you pay a total of $4,000 per person for the 9 months, plus utilities.  If you rented a different house for $350 per person for 12 months, you would pay a total of $4,200, plus, you would pay utilities for 12 months instead of 9 and save even more on utilities.  Plus, you don’t pay for city water at this house.  I only rent it to you for the school year because I rent it out as an Airbnb for more money in the summer.  You save because you don’t have to pay rent or utilities for the summer and I make more because I rent it out by the week in the summer.  So if there are 6 of you who don’t plan to stay for the summer, this is your best value for an amazing house!

The house is set up as a duplex so even 2 groups of 3 renters could share the house.  Or, even if you are a single individual or 2 of you who want to rent the place, if I can find other individuals or small groups to share the place, you would have a fantastic place with everything you need included.  Just bring your clothes and personal items.  Large backyard, firepit, dock, hiking and biking trail runs through the property.  Who wouldn’t want to live here?  It wouldn’t cost you anything to just look at it to check it out, right?  Talk to classmates and friends to see if others may want to join you.

The house has 4 bedrooms, and and an office or spare room, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, 2 kitchens, 2 laundries, large living room with a baby grand piano, den, a large deck, it is fully furnished, including 2 dishwashers and a 2 car garage.

Located on U.S. 41, 3 miles from the Houghton City Limit, it is convenient to MTU and has a large yard to enjoy, with access to Portage Lake and the non-motorized trail from Chassell to Houghton.  If you want something really nice instead of a typical student rental, this is your place.

This is a beautiful home and you must maintain it as such.  Nine month lease available, no smoking in the home and no pets allowed.
