The episode is titled “Coming Back Home” and features Josh and Courtney Bauerle, a couple who up in the Holiday Lakes area. After starting a family of their own, the Bauerles decide it's the perfect time to return and find their dream home on the water.

“Growing up here, I knew what a great hidden gem Holiday Lakes is,” Mike Homan said. “Not only did a nationwide network like HGTV recognize that, but their producers, after seeing many national locations, were amazed by the value our waterfront homes offered here in Holiday Lakes. That was a proud moment.

“When I was contacted about the opportunity to showcase the area, at first I thought they couldn’t be serious. However, after speaking with the production team, I quickly realized we could make this a reality.”

The main lake is 221 acres with about 12 miles of shoreline. There are two main beaches, 27 green areas and an island. Activities include boating and fishing along with basketball, tennis and volleyball courts. It sits adjacent to the Willard Golf Club.

The HGTV’s crew traveled to Willard and followed Homan as he assisted his buyers in discovering their Holiday Lakes dream home.

Here’s a description of “Lakefront Bargain Hunt” on the HGTV website: “Dreams of living on the dock of the bay can come true, even on the tightest budget. We show home seekers how to find the lakefront property of their dreams without breaking the bank. Each week we help a family discover an affordable location that proves you don't need a boatload of cash to live on the lake.”
