The beginnings of Turtle Lake


A rich family used to own 315 acres of land in Oakland County. It was then known as Turtle Lake Farms. It included a 211-acre parcel referred to as “The Homestead.”


Turtle Lake Farms was then bequeathed to the Cathedral of St. Paul and the Episcopal Diocese. The property was sold to a prominent developer in 1983, who renovated the existing buildings.

In 2000, David V. Johnson purchased the property. Mr. Johnson is an internationally respected as an entrepreneur. He is a luxury community and resort developer committed to creating unique living and working environments that exist in ecological harmony with the land.


Originally approved for 277 home sites, Johnson reduced the density and created 101 homes sites, which eventually became the impressive Turtle Lake community.
