Indian River house description

Location. Location. Location.

Nestled on over an acre of pristine Northern Michigan forest, including one hundred and fifty feet of Sturgeon River frontage, Cawthorne's River Retreat is a vacation hideaway unlike any other.

Located on the famous Inland Waterway, you can literally float down the river on a tube, in a kayak, raft, or canoe! In ten minutes, you will reach Burt Lake, Michigan's third largest inland lake.

From Burt Lake, you can continue your adventure on the Inland Waterway down the Indian River and all the way to Mullett Lake, Michigan's second largest inland lake, if so inclined!

There are plenty of activities right at your fingertips! Within walking distance, you can enjoy Burt Lake State Park, Devoe Park (Public Beach), historic downtown Indian River, or the famed Gaylord to Mackinaw City Rail Trail, perfect for biking, walking or snowmobiling.

The upstairs features a master suite with a handcrafted queen size log bed and new mattress set & bedding.

The second suite, also upstairs, includes 2 brand new twin handcrafted log beds. Perfect for children or singles, also with new mattresses and bedding.

The finished basement, which walks out to 150 feet of Sturgeon River frontage, is home to the third bedroom suite. Outfitted with a brand new handcrafted queen log bed with new mattress & bedding you are sure to get a good nights rest!

This home is the perfect getaway, no matter the season.
