Convenient to Chicago, Indianapolis, and Detroit

Cass County offers lifestyle options for everyone and is located in southwestern Lower Michigan, just 115 miles east of Chicago, 176 miles north of Indianapolis, and 183 miles southwest of Detroit. Well-maintained highways connect visitors to Cass County from all directions. Check out Getting Here for more information about available transportation, including high-speed Amtrak service between Chicago and Detroit, with convenient stops in Niles and Dowagiac.

Because Cass County is only a 2-3 hour commute from several major metropolitan areas, and because it is home to over 100 navigatable lakes, many people make Cass County a vacation and weekend destination. Real estate values for seasonal cottages and year-round homes are still reasonable and provide all types of watersport activities throughout the year. HGTV recently featured lakefront properties for sale in Cass County on their “Waterfront Bargains” show.
