Mullett Lake cottage description
Now taking Reservations for 2014 Summer Season: Often cited as one of the most beautiful properties on Mullett Lake, Wal-Mar encompasses 17 acres of pristine woods, meandering creek & 288' of sugar sand beach providing the ideal location for the endless boating, swimming & fishing opportunities waiting just outside your newly remodeled cottage. 'The Outdoor Channel' rates Mullett Lake excellent for bass fishing & filmed a tournament here in the summer of 2011. Test your skills catching bass, walleye & perch. A dock is available to you as is a mooring for your boat. Boats, jet skis, water skis, wakeboards & other water sports equipment can be rented in nearby Indian River, 9 mi. away or Topinabee across the lake. There is a public boat launch 2 mi. away. Mullett Lake is 10 mi. by 4 mi. & 144’ at its deepest. Your cares will vanish when you turn off East Mullett Lake Rd. onto a 1/4 mi. circle drive winding through a lovely and rare Hemlock forest where deer often are seen. Nestled in the middle of a charming bay between Stony Point & Red Pine Point your beautiful two-story cabin sits just a 100' from clean and clear Mullett Lake. Trees provide privacy from all neighbors except for the property owner who loves spending his summers in another cottage on the property. Kick back & enjoy a refreshing drink as you watch the sun set accross the lake. Drift off to sleep listening to the soothing gentle sounds of Waller Creek. Early birds can watch deer at the salt lick in the birch grove across the creek. With camera & binoculars in hand stroll through the woods & along the beach enjoying the many varieties of birds & other fauna & flora. Look for shells on the beach. You can feel safe & comfortable in the shallow clear water as the gradual slope of the sandy lake bottom is only 2'-3' deep for appr. 100' out. This lake has been acclaimed by numerous conservation organizations for its high water quality. Glide quietly along in the provided 2 kayaks or canoe & you may spot a loon or bald eagle. Explore the 38.2 mi. Inland Waterway connecting Lake Huron, Cheboygan River, Mullett Lake, Indian R., Burt Lake, Crooked R., & Crooked Lake. Take your boat across to Topinabee to eat at The Breakers or Noka Cafe, go to Indian River tying up at The Inn Between or the Big Boy on the Cheboygan R. for fun casual atmosphere. For fine dining dock at Hack-Ma-Tack (dinner only) or Pier 33 on the Cheboygan River. By car there are numerous dining options. This is ‘Pure Michigan’ at its best.
The remodeled cottage finished in the fall of 2011, added a carpeted upstairs with 2 bedrooms & a bathroom with granite counter top and tub/shower. The rooms are light & airy. The kitchen was renovated at the same time providing new cabinetry, flooring & granite counter tops. In the spring of 2012, the main floor received new carpet, living room furniture & all bedrooms received new bedding. The cabin has zoned baseboard electric heat throughout. The dining room overlooks Waller Creek & woods. There is a drop-down dining table in the enclosed lakeside porch for additional seating & lake views. The living room & lakeside porch have high-beamed ceilings as does the master bedroom upstairs. Large windows throughout provide spectacular views.
You may not want to leave your haven by the lake, but for those who do venture forth, there are endless things to see & do. Enjoy an excellent performance at the historic Cheboygan Opera House 16 mi. away. Bike or hike miles & miles of groomed trails spanning northern Michigan. There are riding stables in the area. Indian River 9 mi. away is a popular site to start an exhilarating tube, raft or kayak ride down the Sturgeon R. Explore by bike sweet Victorian homes, lush gardens, fun shops, galleries, historic Fort & nice restaurants on romantic & picturesque Mackinac Island. For those wanting a more leisurely pace, hire a horse & buggy & don’t miss High Tea at the spectacular Grand Hotel. Only 30 mi. from the cottage are fast ferries connecting Mackinac City to Mackinac Island. You’ll see the breathtaking & world famous Mackinac Bridge. While in Mackinac City tour the retired Coast Guard icebreaker, ‘Mackinac’ or visit Mill Creek, a replica waterfall sawmill & zip line. Also check out Fort Michilimackinac built during the American Revolution. Enjoy a cruise on the Straits of Mackinac or SCUBA dive on shipwrecks of the Great Lakes. For a change of pace, look for that perfect piece of art or memento to take home while strolling around the fabulous harbor towns of Petoskey, Harbor Springs & Bay Harbor, all near each other on Lake Michigan & only 30-35 mi. from the cottage. Each have nice parks, shops, galleries & restaurants to say nothing about lovely Victorian homes with manicured lawns. See Harbor Springs from the water & learn about its grand history during a free harbor tour on ‘Pointer,’ a classic historic boat compliments of Stafford’s Pier Restaurant. Nearby Boyne Highlands has excellent golf courses & the famous and exciting Young America’s Dinner Theatre.
Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing at all ~~ simply relax by the lake with a book you haven’t had time to read or gaze idly at the tropical colored turquoise water as it rhythmically laps against the shore. Listen to the birds singing overhead. You will find rejuvenation in the soothing powers of nature. No matter how you choose to spend your time, Wal-Mar will provide you with a lifetime of memories & a desire to return again soon.

Return to Mullett Lake
For longtime habitues of the Topinabee side of beautiful Mullett Lake this was a wonderful place for a family gathering. We discovered the sunsets we'd missed all those years. The fire pit is great. We loved walking the beach and swimming in the lake's freshwater. We grilled fish and hamburgers here and went to lunch at the Breakers across the lake in Topinabee. What a great week. Thank you!

Great PlaceGuest comment entered by owner
We enjoyed your beautiful cabin and everything that came with it. The dock was such a perfect place for us girls to lay out and enjoy the sun. We also loved our boat docked right out front so we had easy access for fishing ....We enjoyed having dinner and shopping in all of the unique shops of Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Mackinaw. Overall, we had a great experience here in Northern Michigan. It would of not been possible without this great place to stay. Thank you both for everything!

Sharing ParadiseGuest comment entered by owner
We had million dollar sunsets/views many nights right outside our back porch window. Fun wildlife we saw included loons, wild turkeys and a porcupine walking by the side of the road....Thanks, John and Marcia for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

The first thing I must mention is that the cabin is immaculate and the property is breathtaking. That being said, what you can't see in the photos is the owners house less than 50 feet away. The fire ring is on his part of the property and unless the air is completely still (and keep in mind you are on a lake) there are no fires allowed. Also the boat dock mentioned cannot be used as it is full of the owners boats and jet skis. You can however use the mooring that is 100 yards out (if you don't mind swimming to and from your boat every time you use it). You almost feel as if you are under surveillance, as the owner will pop in unexpectedly and at will throughout your week. Again the cabin and its furnishings are top notch, but if you are after even a little bit of privacy beware. Also, he kept 20% of our deposit because of a water stain on a old wooden trunk allegedly left by a wet bathing suit. Really?? We love Mullett Lake and its surroundings and plan on returning...... Just not here!
