Mullett Lake house description

Peaceful beauty awaits you all year at this newly upgraded home on quiet Needle Point Drive. Situated on 200 feet of lake front, this home has a spacious open floor plan that is perfect for entertaining family and friends. Summertime boating, swimming, tubing, water skiing and jet skiing are just steps away. If fishing is your pleasure, the lake is serene and calm for early morning and evening outings. Long boating excursions take you onto Indian River and out onto nearby Burt Lake and beyond. A gem of the north, Mullett Lake is never crowded and the sunsets are spectacular.

Nearby you can take in the wonders of the Mackinac Bridge, the world's longest suspension bridge. Michigan's beautiful Upper Penninsula is just the other side of the Bridge.

Half an hour from the cottage you can take a ferry over to Mackinac Island where the only mode of transportation is by foot, bicycle or horses, all of which will take you to the Grand Hotel, open since 1887 and known for its beautiful front porch and outstanding service. Back on the mainland in Mackinaw City visit Fort Michilimackinac, an 18th Century fort and a National Historic Land Mark.

Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons in Northern Michigan and from this rental home you can see trees changing color all around the lake. Drives, both long and short, will take you past spectacular displays of fall foliage through state forests, parks and small towns in this area which is not heavily populated. Hunting is also a popular fall sport, both bow and rifle.

Winter brings out snowmobilers and cross country skiers with plenty of nearby trails to follow.

No matter what your recreational pleasure, Northern Michigan has much to offer. This rental home is in a great location to take advantage of these activities. The home is also the perfect place for quiet solitude or wonderful gatherings of family and friends.

Come and share the wonders of a Northern Michigan vacation!

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: Happily married for over 40 years, Jim and Sally have been sweethearts since high school when they were hooked up because of having birthdays on the same day. Although still extremely active in our own custom hardware and software business, we spend as much time as possible with our children and their families. Our oldest lives nearby working as a licensed massage therapist. The middle child lives with his wife, a professor at Sam Houston University, and two little girls in Houston where he works at Rice University. Our youngest lives in Denver where she is an oncology nurse. Her husband works for the Security and Exchange Commission. They have a daughter and a son. In addition, we have three wonderful 'granddogs', a Golden, a mixed breed and a Samoyed. Other fun in our lives include attending concerts by the Detroit Symphony and sightseeing in our Solstice.

                      Why the Owner Chose Mullett Lake:
                      We inherited this beautiful home after many wonderful and memorable years vacationing with the extended family. Because it has been in the family for so many years, we have first hand experience as to how well suited the house is for family reunions or groups of friends.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Located on an out-of-the-way street, and with 200 feet of lakefront, the property is a perfect getaway that provides privacy in a relaxing, tranquil setting. Being far from city lights, the night sky is spectacular as are the sunsets, viewable from the dock. When family arrives the house lends itself to boisterous activity while the layout of the house gives each person an option of finding individual solitude.
