Corey Lake Homes For Sale
Corey Lake is a 630-acre all-sports lake near Three Rivers, less than an hour from the University of Notre Dame and a little more than 2 hours from Chicago. The lake’s deepest point is 80 feet, but nearly half of it is less than 15 feet deep. The lake holds abundant largemouth bass as well as black crappie, bluegill, grass pickerel, hybrid striped bass, rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, sunfish, walleye, and yellow perch. The area was once the hunting grounds of Native Americans, and the lake is named for an early settler, John Corry. In early days, the Grand View Hotel and Richelieu Lodge were favored tourist attractions. One-third of the lakeshore is occupied by historic Camp Eberhart and Camp Wakeshema, both more than a century old, leaving less dense residential housing overall. About half the homes are occupied year-round. Home prices range from xx to yy.
Near the lake, Corey Lake Marina offers boat service as well as a convenience store, and Happy Landing Café & Lounge and Dock Sports Bar offer food and drink. The Corey Lake Yacht Club promotes sailing, racing, and socializing, with races on Saturday and Sunday through the summer. Corey Lake Orchards, within walking distance, offers fresh produce, pick-your-own apples, strawberries, peaches, and cherries, and brandy made from its own grapes. A half-hour away in Dowagiac, the Wood Fire Grill is a favorite restaurant, often featuring entertainment from Chicago. The lake is 45 minutes from Portage and Kalamazoo with their restaurants and brewpubs and less than an hour to South Haven and wine country around Paw Paw.
The active lake association (coreylakeassociation.com) hosts numerous social and educational events, including an Independence Day boat parade and fireworks, a poker run, a yard sale, a triathlon, and a workshop on shoreline landscaping.
Corey Lake is a perfect place for living the lake life in your home or your home away from home.
