Magician Lake is part of the “Sister Lakes” region of Lower Michigan, about 20 minutes east of St. Joseph and six miles northwest of the city of Dowagiac. It is the largest of the lakes in the Sister Lakes area with a total of 498 acres, three islands, two marinas and a sand bar. The gradual depth of Magician Lake makes it a great swimming lake for children, and boat rentals, fishing, water skiing and other lake activities are also available on the lake. There is one outlet on Magician Lake that is known as Silver Creek, located on the eastern shores. Other recreational activities in the area include hiking, biking, golf, hunting, skiing, snowmobiling and sledding. The nearby town of Dowagiac is filled with beautiful Victorian architecture and has a vibrant downtown area for shopping, restaurants, theaters and museums. St. Joseph is a deep-water port town that has picturesque brick roads and many unique shops, art galleries, antique shops and cafes.

About Scott and Monique Strong
When we got married in 2004, we made a list of things we wanted to do. Purchasing a lake house where our someday kids could build memories was one of our dreams. We live in the city 4 blocks from Wrigley Field so having a place to escape to in the summer months is really awesome! I'm a realtor in the city and Scott is in the technology world. We have two girls and one dog and we love raising our girls in a dynamic urban environment. Since we purchased Mellow Yellow, two other family friends of ours purchased on the lake along with repeat guests of Mellow Yellow. So don't be surprised if you too end up purchasing on this lake! I have my MI Real Estate license, so if you have any interest in finding a home on any of the Sister Lakes, I can help! 312-925-6299
Scott and Monique Strong purchased this House in 2005
Why Scott and Monique Strong chose Sister Lakes
We chose mellow yellow because of the potential it had and for the amazing location on the lake. It sits high on a hill with an amazing view of the lake. It has 60 feet of private lake frontage and a huge grassy yard. It is also down a private road with low traffic. Over the years we have completely remodeled the interior. We took the floors out and re-built the foundation. The house is one of the original homes on the lake, so before renovating the kitchen we wanted to make sure the structure was intact. Surprisingly, the house was in great shape and after some reinforcement to the foundation, we added new hardwood floors throughout, painted all the dark wood white, opened up the kitchen and added new cabinets, quartz countertops and new stainless steel appliances. We added central HVAC, a new roof and a large deck off the sunporch. It's hardly recognizable now from when we bought it. We tried to keep as much original charm that we could, but it has a much more functional plan and a fantastic chefs kitchen. Magician Lake is the largest of the sister lakes and it has a nice sandy bottom.
