Cass Lake West Bloomfield MIBig Lakes in West Bloomfield Township

Here is a list of the best lakes in West Bloomfield Township.  Many lake home buyers consider big lakes to be the best.  I will not get into the argument whether a bigger lake is better.  I am going to list the 6 biggest lakes in the township.

Cass Lake is one of the largest lakes in South east Michigan.  It is Oakland County's largest lake at 1280 acres and with an average depth 26 feet.  Its deepest point reaching 123 feet.  Cass Lake is a great choice for those seeking a waterfront property in Michigan because it is surrounded by so many cities in Oakland County.  These Michigan cities include Waterford Township, West Bloomfield Orchard Lake Village, and Keego Harbour.  These waterfront properties sit on a public access lake that allows all sports vehicles.  Cass Lake is a fun place for waterfront living in Michigan because it does have sherriff patrols.

  Cass Lake is what I would call a high end lake.  It has many luxury waterfront estates on the lake that range over 6 million dollars and some of these waterfront estates have over 10,000 square feet of living space.  Of course you will find many smaller homes on the lake too.  If these smaller homes have large lots many times they will be torn down to have bigger homes with the latest amenities built on them.  There are still some 1000 square foot homes on the lake.  Cass Lake does have a few canals too so you may be able to find a Cass Lake canal front home that is lower in price and lower in taxes but still gives you the full access of the lake.

Union Lake Sunrise

Union Lake is a lake in West Bloomfied, Michigan, with large, well-kept waterfront homes.  Union Lake is definitely considered to be one of Michigan’s nicest communities, though it is not private.  Still, with 465 acres and spacious waterfront properties, privacy and convenience can still be found on Union Lake.  The lake has a maximum depth of 110 feet and its large size makes it great for all sports activities.  Union Lake itself has a lot to offer, and so do these high-end waterfront properties, in West Bloomfield, Michigan. There is a small part of Union Lake that is in Commerce MI.  It is a public all sports lake with a public access on Union Lake Rd.  Union Lake still has some of the old lake cottages around, but it is slowing becoming a very high end lake.  You will find homes ranging from $600,000 to over a million dollars on the lake (2013)  However you will still see small ranches and split level homes on there too.
