Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My husband Ken and myself have enjoyed this relaxing cabin with the quiet lake with no ski boats, or wave runners. only canoes, paddle boats and fishing boats. We are in our 70's and our three sets of married children and 11 grandchildren enjoy it also. They are all in business for themselves and can only visit the cabin one week a month. This is why we only rent it for 2 weeks out of the month and we need one week for our kids and one week for us to do any maintenance. There also is a fire pit outside for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. and telling spooky stories.

Why the Owner Chose Manitowish Waters:
The beauty of way up north is impossible to describe, so unspoiled and town merchants are all so nice. Township has only 850 full time residents, and all love it up there

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Sitting down on the pier and watching for water foul, seeing the Sturgeron or Muskie jump and watch for deer who live on state owned island across the way. One of our friends who stayed here sat on the pier and thought they saw a dog swim from the island to the pier next to us and when it stood up it was a small black bear, which continued up to the woods and disappeared.
