Welcome to Swiss Village East
Who We Are:
We are the property owners' association for a growing community in Northwestern Michigan.
Tucked away in quiet woods near one of northern Michigan's most popular resorts -- Shanty Creek -- is one of Michigan's most wonderful secrets --Swiss Village East. Beautiful, wooded lots -- 245 in all, typically 1/2 to 3/4 acres in size, are readily available on paved roads at incredibly reasonable prices.
To date there are 60+ homes and the number increases every year. An active property owners association -Swiss Village East Property Owners' Association (SVEPOA) -- adds value in many ways with very modest annual dues. The beautiful Cedar River flows along one of five parks owned by the Association for exclusive use of property owners. Enjoy our riverside walking path.
You can enjoy yourself at the Community Park, located at the intersection of Clearview and Hilltop, which is a great place to congregate with friends and family. It has a covered pavilion, swings, tetherball, a basketball court, and BBQ grill.
SVE is a place for those in search of a quiet respite from the urban setting. Great golf, skiing, fishing, hunting, hiking, boating, snowmobiling, and swimming are all nearby.

SVE Governing Documents- Phase II:
SVE is in the process of updating our governing documents to more accurately reflect the desires of the community. In August of 2021, the association/property owners voted on and approved a restatement of the Articles of Incorporation and allowed for an amendment to the Restrictions and Regulations (Phase I). Since that time, the SVE Board of Directors, in conjunction with the Zelman, Danner, and Fioritto legal firm out of Plymouth, have been working diligently to draft an Amended and Restated Restrictions and Regulations for the SVE community.
