Gladwin cottage description

Hurry make your 2015 reservations now. On the south shore of Pratt Lake, in the community of Gladwin, MI sits our fun filled 2BR rustic cottage on 50 feet of water frontage. Pack your swimsuits cause you will need it! Pratt lake is great for your skiboat, waterskis, tubes, pontoon, kayaks or jet skis to play on all of the 180 acres Pratt Lake offers! Relax at the picnic table or sit and gaze at the lake from the deck. Grab a book and read in the sand. Enjoy the beach and great views of Pratt Lake. Pack your 'Smores' for the outdoor fire pit. Fish from the 40 foot dock. Public boat launch right down the street to launch all of your toys. Plenty of room to secure your water toys on the dock. Canoe and Row boat included. Clear water - great swimming. Water depth at our shoreline increases gradually - good for children. Firm, clean bottom. If you like to fish there is good pan fish, bass, walleye and pike fishing. If the fishing is tough, take a trip to downtown Gladwin and hit the trout pond! Light boat traffic except on holiday weekends. Our cottage was built in the 20s and was one of the original cabins on Pratt Lake. It has a full kitchen with all of the amenities, 1 full bath room, a large living room, rustic wood paneling throughout with sloped, painted pine hard wood floors. There are three queen beds along with two sleeper sofas. Both the dining room and sun room look out over gorgeous views of Pratt Lake.

Awesome sand bar to park your boat for a relaxing stop in the lake.

Enjoy 1000s of acres of state land within miles of quiet paved roads ideal for cycling, ATV or walking. Canoe around the lake at dusk for great wildlife viewing. Look for our breeding pair of bald eagles or listen to the loons on early Pratt lake mornings. Look out at the point and you may see our local deer enjoying the water.

Golfing within 10-15 minutes. 5 minutes to the public library.
6 miles to downtown Gladwin for shopping, 30 miles to Houghton Lake, Midland and West Branch. 2.5 hrs from both the greater Detroit and Grand Rapids suburbs. Excellent ice cream store with the Gladwin famous “Pigs Platter” within 4 miles that can’t be missed!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About the owner: My wife Maureen and I grew up in Michigan, and we love going to northern Michigan. Ever since 1984, I’ve been coming to Pratt Lake. My wife and I knew we’d be going back to Pratt as often as we could. As our family grew, we found Pratt to be the perfect place to take the kids. They couldn't get enough of the lake. There was no question, we had to invest in our own 'Pratt Lake cottage.' We hope you'll enjoy all that Pratt Lake and northern Michigan has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too! TJ and Maureen, Portage, MI.

          Why the Owner Chose Gladwin:
          Our family bought on Pratt Lake 30 years ago and I spent every summer on the lake as a child. When our cottage was listed in 2007, we knew we wanted to create memories for our children just the same and bought it the same day it listed.
