From those who used to frequent Castaways Restaurant in years past, to those who still frequent the Lake Inn. Or the countless golfers who frequent the Lapeer Country Club, and even Lake Nepessing Golfland respectively, the beauty of Lake Nepessing's shores are no secret to many.

Have You Seen Lake Nepessing's Ever Changing Shorelines 

Although you can see quite a bit of the lake's shorelines from Hunt Rd, as well as from South Shore Drive directly across the lake from the Boat Launch, it's just not the same as what you see when you are literally on the water.

Over the last 50+ years there have been some unbelievably beautiful homes built on Lake Nepessing. And, as the times change, so do the home designs and overall looks.

Some Homes Just Stand Out as Memorable

If you have ever been lucky enough to take a nice leisurely cruise around Lake Nepessing, there are undoubtedly a few homes that stand out and catch the eyes of passersby.

For instance, there is the beautiful home on the hill just past the old Castaways location with its winding drive leading down to the lake that is always a topic of conversation. There is also the newer three-story brick (dare I say Mansion) home on the South Shore side that starts a lot of conversations as well.

But, maybe one of the most talked about homes since its construction is the huge A-Frame home sitting high up on the bank with the three (yes three) giant decks leading down to the lake.

Most folks can only see this home from the lake as it sits on a private road.

Since its construction in 1987 by a very successful local businessman, it never lost its lake appeal for those who passed by on the water over the years. It just had one of those looks that was eye catching.

Well ... it was recently purchased and has its first new owners since its original owners who built it. And the new owners were not afraid to change the look a bit.

So ... What do you think?

It doesn't matter. Because, whether you like it or not makes no difference. The new owners obviously have a vision that they are bringing to life.

Updates to come should anything new, worth seeing, be done to the home.

I just love how the tour of the home almost tells the story of the dog's life... so I'll let him give you the tour.

The Palmer Woods Home Once Belonged to a Detroit Tigers Owner

The Briggs Mansion, located in Detroit's prestigious Palmer Woods neighborhood is both charming and historic. It once belonged to Walter Owen Briggs, the owner of the Detroit Tigers from 1919 to 1952.

Keep in mind that while this home is definitely a fixer-upper, it plays a significant role in Motor City sports history.

We'll sum it up like this: The kitchen is beautiful but the bathrooms could use some TLC.
