Where is Rehab Addict Lake House?

Rehab Addict Lake House Rescue is filmed in Nicole’s hometown, Lake Orion, Michigan, where she completes the costly and complicated transformation of an over 100-year-old lakefront property she purchased for her family.

Situated near Orion Lake, in a village in Michigan’s Oakland County, the waterfront cottage has been a huge part of Nicole’s life for the last decade. Films such as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Crow were shot there!

Orion Lake is known as the eighth largest lake by area in Oakland County. It is located within both the village of Lake Orion and Orion Township. Nicole moved from the area to Detroit many years ago, but goes back for holidays.

Nicole Curtis bought the property years ago

Nicole bought the vacation home, which was built in 1904, for her family eight years ago. Known for purchasing historic properties, she started working on the project the second summer after she purchased the house.

She and her team started the makeover by upgrading the property’s exterior, including the roof, porches, siding, and landscaping. They transformed the top floor into her personal retreat, with a bedroom, bathroom and dressing room.

Nicole also created a kids room, while filling other new spaces in the home with the historic details she loves. Although the process has been slow since she first purchased the property, it’s all coming together!
