Lakefront homes in Oakland County Michigan

Tamarack Lake homes Pinckney MI

Tamarack Lakefront houses are like most Huron River Chain of Lake homes.  There are about 64 homes on the lake.  The main difference of homes on the lake is there are no old cottages.  Most of the waterfront homes were built after 1960.   They are tighter together and you are not going to find a lake home with acreage on this lake. 

The basic characteristics of the homes on the lake are:  The home styles are ranches, colonials, and contemporaries.  They have one to four bathrooms, and two to five bedroom, but mainly three and four bedrooms.  The sizes of the homes range from 820 square foot to about 4200 square foot.  Tamarack Lake homes were built between 1962-2017.  Some lake homes have basements.  Some homes have no car garages (just a few) to 3 car garages mainly 2 car garages.

The lakefront homes are on wells, and sewer.  A few homes are still on septic.  There are no condominiums on the lake.

In the last 3 years (from 10/2011) the most expensive home on the lake sold for $530,000.  It was a 4200 square ft colonial, 1977 built, 5 Bedroom, 4 bath, 3 car garage lake home that was on .68 of an acre.  The least expensive Tamarck Lake home sold during the same period sold for $149,000. It was a 1048 square foot ranch,  1971 built, 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 2 car garage on  75' frontage. There is a 820 square foot ranch on a 45' foot lot and then there is 4200 square foot colonial and 144' lots.  And there is all sizes and shapes of lake homes and properties in between.  

I hope this gives you an idea of what Tamarck Lake is like, call or email me with questions or if you would like to buy on the chain of lakes.  (248)310-6239 or       

Tamarack Lake Pinckney MI 

Tamarack Lake Chain of Lakes MI Information

Tamarack Lake in Pinckney is a public all sports lake that is about 16 acres in size.  I say it is public because there is a DNR boat launch on Portage Lake.  It is a no wake lake. There is no public beach, no marina, or state approved ski course on the lake.  The deepest spot on the lake is 34 feet deep.

The lake is fed by the Huron River.  The streets around the lake are gravel and paved.  There are no canals on the lake.

Homes for sale Tamarack Lake Hamburg miTamarack Lake is a no wake lake. It is connected to the Portage Chain of lakes or as some other people call it the Pinckney chain of lakes or the Hamburg chain of lakes.   There is a bridge that you have to get under.  When the water is higher it is sometimes hard to get under the bridge.  So you must have a low side walls on your boat if you want to get out all the time.

Anybody from the chain of lakes can come onto the lake so it really isn't a private lake.  But usually it will be a pontoon that is just cruising around looking at the homes, or a kayaker, or a fisherman looking for that hot fishing spot.

Since it is a "no wake" lake you aren't going to get skiers or jet-skiers tearing about the lake and making lots of noise. The children that live on the lake go to Pinckney Schools.  On the waters of the channel connecting Tamarack Lake and the Huron river, Hamburg Township, Livingston County, it is unlawful for the operator of a vessel to exceed a slow--no wake speed.

Have a great sunset photo? Or a good skiing, or action photo of the lake?  Or even a photo of your family's fishing catch?  I am looking for great photos to put on the website if you would like to share.  You can email them to  Be sure to tell me which lake it is from.  Thanks in advance for helping make this the best lake website in Southeastern Michigan

 We want to provide you with the best information possible about Wayne, Livingston, and Oakland County Lakes.  The reason I started my websites is when I had lake buyers years ago I could not find all the information on any lake all in one spot.  I had to jump around and piece all the information together.  I wanted to be able to find what I needed for my clients on one page.

 So I started going out and visiting the lakes when I had free time.  I sat and talked to the local lake residents when I had time.  I have taken all these pictures.  I have over a hundred pictures of some of the lakes.  I took pictures of the homes on the lake one year after my wife died.  I did not feel like working, but I needed something to do.  So I drove around to all the local lakes in the area, gathered information, and took pictures.  It kept me busy after my wife’s death from breast cancer.  At the same time I gained so much knowledge about our local lakes.

If feel if you take the time to read about some of the lakes or look at some of my amateur videos on you tube you may find a lake that interests you.  Then I will have done a good thing. Even other realtors use my website as their resource.  I know the local lakes very well so when you start looking for a lake home give me a call.

Here is what a previous client had to say about me!

"Hi Russ,

I wanted to thank for helping me get my Milford condo.  I know I limited my chances of finding the "perfect condo" by wanting a certain small area.  But you came out here whenever we found one.  It took me a year of looking but finally we found one that was the "one".  It was a short sale which I knew nothing about.  You told me about all the problems that might happen with a "short sale" and some of them did.  You were good about re-assuring me about the length of time short sales take.  But we finally got the condo!   Thank you from Courtney and I."
