Where was ‘Rehab Addict Lake House Rescue’ filmed? Nicole Curtis takes on complicated new project
LAKE ORION, MICHIGAN: HGTV has yet again decided to treat its audience with another renovation show. And this time, it’s a spin-off of ‘Rehab Addict’. So naturally, Nicole Curtis is set to reprise her role as the host. The show will follow Nicole who takes up the project of her life. ‘Rehab Addict Lakehouse Rescue’ will also mark the design enthusiast’s return after a sabbatical of over two years from the limelight.
‘Rehab Addict Lakehouse Rescue’ will follow a similar storyline to that of the other ‘Rehab Addict’ shows. The self-taught designer will bring forth her creativity and tactical mind to rehabilitate a rundown lakehouse that she had purchased for her family. When Nicole had seen the lakefront property, she had fallen head-over-heels for it. The 100-year-old cottage was on the verge of being demolished, but Nicole stepped up and bought it to save it from its impending doom. The project took her eight years to finish and ‘Rehab Addict Lakehouse Rescue’ will finally show the conclusion of the grand renovation. Read on to know more about the new project, including its location.
Where was ‘Rehab Addict Lakehouse Rescue’ filmed?
You can say it’s a special project for Nicole as she returns to her hometown to film the new series. The historic waterfront property is based in Orion, Michigan. It sits gloriously near Orion Lake and offers an excellent view. Since the show focuses on the rehabilitation of the cottage, it is filmed at the cottage's location in Orion, Michigan.
Nicole purchased the vacation home for her family eight years ago. Known for restoring such historic and dated properties, Nicole will be adding her creative touches to this cottage which is reportedly from 1904. “I wanted to create a light, breezy lake house and thought it would be easy,” she said about the project. “Yet this was the most challenging and expensive build of my career. In the end, it will be some of my most meaningful work because I now have a place to make happy memories with my family and friends,” she confessed. Nicole started working on the project the second summer after she purchased the house, but it continued slowly due to many personal setbacks that the reality star faced.
The lakehouse also imposed many challenges on Nicole, including a dilemma over incorporating new over old. “I didn’t want anyone walking into the first floor and being like, ‘This is a new house.’ I wanted them to think they’re in the original cottage,” Nicole said, adding, “The staircase had to look old, or everyone would see where we chopped the house.”
Talking about the lake-facing cottage’s interior design, she said, “With its leaded-glass tulip windows and schoolhouse banister, it turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the house.”
Catch Nicole in action as she races to finish her Lake Orion family vacation home on 'Rehab Addict Lakehouse Rescue’ which is set to premiere on November 3, 2022, at 9/8c on HGTV.
