Things to do during "cabin time" in Lake Odessa
Affordable, pet friendly Lake Odessa beach cottages and vacation rentals. Vacationers making their temporary home in Lake Odessa, MI, will find themselves in a friendly Midwestern village of just over 2,000 people in the south/central region of Michigan’s lower peninsula. This quiet waterfront community is located at the northern edge of Jordan Lake — and just a short jaunt from the smaller Tupper Lake — in Michigan’s scenic Ionia County.
Jordan Lake is a man-made body of water covering 430 acres in prime freshwater fishing territory. Michigan cabins and lakefront cottages located on or near Jordan Lake can enjoy clean water and peaceful views, as well as a number of pleasant picnic spots. Anglers are encouraged to test the waters, with an accessible public boat launch. Common catches off Jordan Lake include bluegill, largemouth bass, sunfish, walleye, northern pike, crappie, catfish, bullhead and carp. Visitors are welcome for fish from private watercraft or cast a line from shore. Jordan Lake charges no fees and is open 24/7.
Another great place to picnic in Lake Odessa, Michigan, is the 2.7-acre Lake Odessa Village Park on Jordan Lake. The village park has a clean, sandy beach and children’s playground equipment, as well as a covered pavilion that can be reserved for small events. Book your Lake Odessa rental cabin, cottage, lodge or vacation home, and plan a reunion or family gathering at the pavilion, where guests of all ages can enjoy a day on the lake and a great view.
When you’re not enjoying the great outdoors and peaceful landscapes near Lake Odessa, you can head into town for local dining, gift shops and antiques. The Lake Odessa Antique Mall and Bonanza Antiques are both unique local businesses featuring priceless treasures from times gone by. Collectors and amateur decorators alike can find one-of-a-kind pieces, such as furniture and books, vintage toys and photographs, clocks and signs, glassware, postcards, linens, and even automotive and railroad paraphernalia.
Lake Odessa, MI, is home to the I-96 Speedway, which is a premier racing facility that hosts high-adrenaline events every weekend from April through October. The village is also home to the Lake Odessa Fairgrounds — contact your vacation cabin rental owner or local manager directly to find out more about annual Lake Odessa Fair events and specific dates.
