Base Line Lake Hamburg MI information

Base Line Lake Livingston County MIBaseline Lake on the chain of lakes is a public all sports lake that is 254 acres in size.  It is a public lake like all the lakes on the Huron River chain of lakes because there is a DNR public launch on Portage Lake.  If you can get on Portage Lake you can boat to Base Line Lake.  There are no wake restrictions on the lake.  There are some no wake zones on the river between the lakes.

There is no public beach, no marina on the lake, and no state approved water ski course on the lake that I know of.  Depending on where you live on the lake your children will go to Dexter or Pinckney.  The streets around the lake are either paved or gravel.

Base Line Lake is part of the Hamburg chain of Lakes or as some people call it the Portage Chain of Lakes.  It is the last lake right before Portage Lake.  There is one sunken island on the lake where it gets about 5' deep.  Baseline Lake is a big round lake.  There are a couple of deep holes on Base Line Lake of 64' and 54'.  University of Michigan has a sail club on the lake at 8010 Strawberry Lake Rd for students.  U of M sail club

The lake is fed by the Huron River from the north (Whitewood Lake is to the north).  What is great about the chain of lakes it that it is a boater's paradise no matter what you do with a boat.  For a pontoon person you could take a whole day exploring the shoreline and looking at all the home with your guests.  For water skiers, jet skiers, and wakeboarders there is Portage Lake, Baseline Lake, or Strawberry Lake with lots of room and lots of width to enjoy those activities.

Fisherman have lots of drop off's, and weed beds to fish on the many different lakes on the whole Portage chain of lakes.  Kids on the lake either go to Pinckney or Dexter schools depending on where they live on the lake. There are not a lot of wide open spaces or privacy on Baseline Lake

 What is the best county to buy a lake home in?  You should not base your decision on buying a lake home in on a county.  It should be about convenience.  If you are thinking about commuting to work which lakes, which counties will work best for you.  You do not want to be driving an hour and a half back and forth to work when you could have been driving only 45 minutes.

Base Line Lake Hamburg MIAnother factor in many of my clients decisions is not only drive time to work, but also how far are their kids.  How far do the kids have to drive to get to the lake home, or lake cottage.  I have had clients that  have kids in Lansing and one in Mt Clemons.  So they want the lake cottage to be somewhere in between.  Or one in Ann Arbor and one in Farmington Hills.  The clients may be retired so they have no drive time.  It is more about convenience to the kids.

Of course Wayne, Oakland, Livingston, and Genesee Counties all have lakes.  All lakes are different.  So besides drive time it may boil down to the lake and the lake home you can find.  If you are not restricted by drive time then you have a wide open choice of four counties and hundreds of lakes.

So there is no best county to buy a lake home in.  There is no best city to buy a cottage in.  It is all about your criteria, your wants.  If you have no  travel restrictions or times you will have many choices.  Feel free to email me what you are looking for in a lake home so I can set up a specialized lake home search that can be emailed to you.  My email is

Baseline Lake properties are not very wide.  They range for the most part between 40' and 70' frontage.  You won't find big acreage on Baseline Lake.  There are some homes that seem like they have been squeezed in between the lake and the road.There are some lake front homes that are "shotgun" style homes.  What I mean by that is that the home was built on a 40' or 50' wide lot that is deep.  So the home is 40' wide but maybe 80' long.  The longest part is running from the road to the lake.  They don't have a lot of frontage on the lake, but yet the house is good sized.

Of course like most Livingston County lakes there are older lake homes from the 1920's to the 1940's.  Then there are homes that have been built in the 1960's or 1980's or 2000's.

  Michigan Realtor ratings and Testimonials

"Russ was kind and helpful. We had not bought a house in over 40 years so we had no idea what was in store for us.

After reading the testimonials on Russ's website, we gave him a call.  We'd had a bad experience with a previous realtor, so we were cautious.  But it turned out to be one of the best decisions we ever made.

He answered all our questions and even worked around our schedules to show us houses.  As busy as Russ can be, he always returned our calls.

Even when we decided to put the search on hold for almost a year, Russ waited patiently for us to be ready. He told us that when we were ready again, he'd be ready to help.

Bottom line, Russ is a very good realtor who goes above and beyond what you expect. Thank you Russ for everything! We and our dogs love our new home!"

~Frank and Maria Botello~

My husband and I chose Russ to be our real estate agent after a friend highly recommended him.  We were moving here from Canada and only had a few days to look at homes.  When we came in to town, Russ went far above the call of duty.  He had thoroughly planned our 2 days and had numerous homes lined up for us to view.  After talking to us briefly and asking us a few questions before our arrival, he new exactly what types of homes would be ideal for us.  After searching for a short time he found the perfect home for us. 

After the sale, Russ even met our painters, carpet cleaners and home inspector at our new home since we were still out of town.  He also gave us detailed lists of available utility companies, schools, cable services, cleaning companies, house cleaners, fun things to do and wonderful restaurants in the area.  Russ made the entire experience enjoyable and easy.  He has a laid back, genuine personality and my entire family felt comfortable with him immediately.  He feels like a friend not just our real estate agent.

I would HIGHLY recommend Russ to anyone with complete confidence.
