Property description

Hurry make your 2015 reservations now. Newly renovated in front half of 2015. Now Taking bookings for summer 2015! On the south shore of Pratt Lake, in the community of Gladwin, MI sits our fun filled 2BR lodge style cabin with granite counters in kitchen and knotty pine throughout on 50 feet of water frontage. Pack your swimsuits cause you will need it as the sandy beach is great to swim and play. 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 down the street to launch all of your toys. Plenty of room to secure your boat on the dock. Canoe and Row boat included for use. Clear water - great swimming. Water depth at our shoreline increases gradually - good for children (we have 4, so its actively used!). Firm, clean bottom. If you like to fish there is good pan fish, bass, and pike fishing. A few walleyes are caught each year as well. 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 granite and dishwasher with all of the pots/pan/cookware amenities, 1 full bath room with tile floor, a large living room, lodge style knotty pine walls. Dark bamboo hardwood floors. There are three queen beds along with one sleeper sofa. Very open kitchen/ dining/sun room view looks out over beautiful views of the 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, hunting 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: 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 to four children and a goldendoodle, we found Pratt to be the perfect place to take the kids and pup. They couldn't get enough of the lake. There was no question, we had to invest in our own 'Pratt Lake cabin.' 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:
My 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.
