Property description

Luxury 2800 sq/ft home with a workout room, private dock, 62 inch HDTV, DVD collection, wood circular stairs down to the media room. Third bathroom, and workout room (17 feet by 20 feet) - which can sleep two additional people - are also located on the lower level.

This Non-Smoking home has lots of windows, vaulted wood ceilings, skylights, and an expansive view looking south at the lake and adjoining state land. It's a runner's and hiker's paradise - take the 'Forrest Gump Challenge' and claim a bottle of wine from the house collection if you can master it. Pontoon boat is available for a nominal fee (see below) and 3 Kayak's are included with the rental on this 'no-wake' lake, i.e., no Jet Ski's or fast boats.

Next to the 7000 acre Mackinaw State Park on Crooked Lake. Lake is over one and a half miles long with a beach at the far end. Great fishing.


Three other buildings are also located on the one acre lot including a two and a half car garage, a dog kennel, and a work shop. Also, a concrete half-court basketball area at the back of the garage.

Visit 3 very quaint towns in the area and close to all major Northern Michigan attractions, but without all the traffic!

As other renters have noted 'the pictures don't do it justice!' and 'almost too special to rent out!' Send an e-mail with your mailing address to receive a free CD with more pictures and information.
