Orchard Lake Village Reviews

2 reviews
I have lived in Orchard Lake for 7 years and I love it! The people are always so nice when walking the dog to driving the car. The city is small, but full of beautiful homes! It makes for a nice drive. My only critique would be that some of the roads could be patched up a little because of the pot holes.

Orchard Lake is the best little village around. Adjacent to many lakes (Cass, Sylvan, Hammond, Upper Straights, Lower Straights, Pine, Union just to name a few). The best being Orchard Lake proper. By far the best sand bar ever! Also the very best neighbors. Close to anything you need. I can walk to the grocery store, pharmacy and many bars and restaurants. School district (BHHS) is one of the best in the country. Very safe community. Beautiful nature trails!
