Waterfront homes on Lake Sherwood are what I would subdivision homes.  There are no shacks on the lake.  It was a planned community/subdivision many years ago.  Most of the homes are brick ranches, colonials, tri-levels, and quad-level homes.  Over the years some vacant lots and smaller homes were torn down and bigger new homes were built.  Lake Sherwood Commerce MI has a few canals with quite a few homes on them too.

You will not find bungalows or old 1920's ranch cottages on the lake.  There are paved roads great for walking with your kids, riding bikes, or walking the dog.  There are several subdivision beaches/parks on the lake for use by all of the residents.  If you are looking for lake homes that are not jammed together then Lake Sherwood may be the place for you!  Downtown Milford is just a short ride away.
