Hillman cottage description

Relax and create some wonderful memories at our lakefront cottage on the pristine, 300 acre, Long Lake. Our inviting and cozy cottage is the perfect getaway. Imagine waking up in the morning to the sound of loons calling to each other and the sight of a beautiful sunrise.

Location:
Hillman, Northeast Michigan. Hillman is not far from Alpena and Atlanta -3.5 hours from Metro Detroit

Accommodations:
Log cottage, smoke free, sleeps 5-6, 2 bedrooms (1st room- 1 queen bed, 2nd room-1 twin and 1 bunk bed). Additional sleeping for two in small loft. Fantastic lake views from living room with stone fireplace, remodeled kitchen and large new sunroom.

A large deck overlooks the lake. The cottage sits on 100’ of sandy bottomed lakefront property. There is also a sandy play area and a fire pit. Our lot is quite large with many hardwood trees giving it an up north feel.

There is a free public boat launch on the lake and mooring available at our dock. Renters may also have free use of our 12’ aluminum rowboat with oars and our two kayaks. The shoreline has many stretches of vacant land making the lake very peaceful with little activity

Attractions:
Long Lake is one of the top five cleanest lakes in Michigan. It is a clear, natural spring fed lake which often takes on a turquoise blue hue making visitors feel like they are in the Caribbean. Long Lake is home to loons, blue herons and an occasional bald eagle. Fish inhabiting the lake include trout, blue gill, walleye, perch and small and large mouth bass.

Golfers will be greatly impressed with the quality of local golf courses. Two premiere courses include Thunder Bay Golf Resort just 10 minutes away and Elk Ridge Golf Course 15 minutes from the cottage. Another popular and renowned course is Black Lake which is 30 minutes to the north of us. Golfers can play a different course each day and never drive over 30 minutes.

The Thunder Bay Golf Resort is also home to a large elk herd. Elk can be observed during all seasons. During the winter months patrons can go on horse drawn elk viewing sleigh rides to a cabin in the woods for a fantastic dinner.
The historical town of Alpena is only 35 minutes away. Visitors can attend one of many summer festivals, walk around the harbor and marina or visit the National Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum.

Other attractions include Ocqueoc Falls which is the Lower Peninsula’s only waterfall. Those who want a broader fishing experience might like the well-known Fletcher’s Floodwaters or Hubbard Lake.

Sports enthusiast will also enjoy snowmobiling on state trails in the area. The state trails are only 3 miles away and accessible by back trails. The state trail network connects to all of Lower Michigan. Ice fishing is another popular winter activity on the lake.

There is state land in walking distance for those wishing to hike and view wildlife.

A Final Word:
If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation then this is the spot for you! Our cottage feels like a little slice of paradise and is just what you need to unwind and recharge.
