Are you looking for a lakefront home on a lake in Highland MI? If you do not know the biggest all sports lake in Highland Township is Duck Lake that is just north of M-59. Most of the other lakes in the township are smaller. There are some all sports lakes but some of the lakes are non all sports lakes or so small you can't really do much with a speed boat. Some of them are so small you would have to keep the steering wheel turned because you are just going in circles.
Just because the lake is small doesn't mean that the houses will be small. There are some little lakes that have big beautiful 3000+ square foot waterfront homes. Highland Township realizes that much of their tax money comes from the larger lakefront homes. So they want to protect the lakes too. I think they are working on how to get sewers to all the lake homes.
If you did not know most Highland Twp lake homes are on well and septic so you are going to save money on water bills. On the other side I always recommend you to get a well and septic inspection when you buy a home in Highland.
There are no lakes in Highland that you can boat from one lake to another that I know of. The only ones that it may be possible is Lower Pettibone Lake and Moore Lake. You may be able to get a kayak from one to the other but I do not know for sure.
Whether you are looking to do some tubing, or water skiing or just happy watching the wild life, or just want a small lake to kayak on or fish on Highland Township has some beautiful lakes.
The only two big all sports lakes are Duck Lake and White Lake. White Lake lies half in White Lake Township and half in Highland Township. When I say big I mean over 250 acres in size. Most of the lakes in Highland Twp are smaller. Duck Lake and White Lake are both bigger lakes that you can do all the water sports you want. What is nice about both those lakes is they are not just a round lake. Both lakes have multiple bays and canals to enjoy. You can't see the whole lake from any point on the lake. An added bonus on White Lake is the White Lake Inn. You can cruise up on the boat and get a cocktail and dinner. It's a nice bonus!
There are several clusters of lakes in Highland. One cluster has Tomahawk Lake, Kellogg Lake, Taggett Lake, Woodruff Lake, Charlick Lake, Peninsula Lake, and Highland Lake. The other cluster of lakes is Leonard Lake, Huff Lake, Upper Pettibone Lake.

Let's talk about the homes on the lakes. Years ago Highland Township lakes were a get away from Detroit on hot summer days. All the way back from the early 1900's Detroiters came out to Highland, West Bloomfield, and White Lake Township to enjoy the lakes.
Detroiters bought lots and built little cottages around the lakes. As the years went on these little cottages were sometimes torn down and rebuilt. So have been added onto (sometimes multiple times). Garages were built. Even today they are adding on and tearing down homes. When they tear down homes now, most homes that are being rebuilt are going to be close to a million dollars when they finish.
So even today homes on Highland Township lakes are going to be a mixture of sizes, styles, and ages. Most of Highland Twp lake real estate is going to be a mixture. There are a few lakes where they have a grouping of new homes. On the west side of Duck Lake they have a street of newer bigger colonials. It is the same way with Taggett Lake. They too have an area of larger homes.
