Majestic eagles, white swans, ducks, chipmunks and squirrels are just a few of the wildlife you'll enjoy watching from the wrap around deck overlooking 120' of extremely private waterfront. Listen to the loons call as you enjoy your coffee in the mornings. Take a boat trip around East Lake and catch an abundance of fish! The Lake has pike, perch, bluegills, and bass. Our shoreline starts out ankle depth and sandy for the little ones, and gradually gets deeper about 12' from shore. Swim out to the carpeted raft and sunbathe the afternoon away. You can also get adventurous and do some water skiing, boating, sailing or canoeing on our all sports lake. There's a public boat launch for your vessel, and we have a 16' dock for convenience. There's also fantastic fishing right off the dock. For the hiking enthusiast, there are endless miles of trails to discover. Ask about the 23 waterfalls you can explore - all within 45 minutes of the Retreat. In the winter, ride three minutes to gas up and hit the hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails that are waiting! Or, spend a day ice fishing on the lake. It's simply excellent all season fun.
This home is fully stocked with everything you'll need - from towels and linens to pots and pans. If you don't feel like cooking - there is a family restaurant within walking distance. You can also walk to the mini grocery store and gas station nearby. There are four bedrooms in total. The master loft bedroom has a queen size log bed and its own 4 piece bath. One of the main floor bedrooms has a queen bed, and the other main floor bedroom has 2 bunk beds that have double beds on the bottom and twin beds on top, and our newest addition to the home is the fourth bedroom - a large 'Slumberjack Suite' complete with a new king log bed, rustic furnishings and your own private fireplace. This bedroom is located in the lower level - making it darker, cooler and quieter for those who want to catch up on their zzzz's. All of the beds have new, quality, comfortable mattresses and linens.
If you're in the mood for sightseeing - there is plenty to do! Take in Taquamenon Falls, Oswalds Bear Ranch, The Tahquamenon Logging Museum, Lakeshore National Park & Pictured Rocks, The Toonerville Trolley, the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum or the Crisp Point Lighthouse - just to name a few. Or, hop a fairy to Mackinac Island - it's only a 60 minute drive from the house. Lastly, don't forgot to play a round at the 18 hole Newberry Country Club Golf Course.
At the end of the day, lay on one of the lounge chairs down by the lake and savor the gorgeous sunset. Then finish off with a cozy bonfire where you'll recount all of the memories made in this wonderful northern retreat.

About the owner: Our names are Randy and Barb Graham. We've owned the East Lake Retreat since 2003. We actually got married right in our home, and took advantage of the gorgeous setting for our wedding pictures! We are avid outdoors people - enjoying boating, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and all that nature has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Newberry: The UP is simply the perfect place to be to enjoy the outdoors. We live in a larger city down state, and we just can't WAIT to get back to our East Lake Retreat! It's either adventure or relaxation at it's best - just whatever you're in the mood for! If you're looking to shop at the big malls, this is NOT the place to visit. :-)
The Unique Benefits at this House: Fishing, relaxing by the water and night time bonfires are our all time favorite things to do at the retreat. In the winter, it's our snowmobile heaven! We've made many fabulous memories here, and we hope that we can pass the opportunity along for you and your family to make your memories here too!
