Property description

Enjoy the entire INLAND WATERWAY from a nicely appointed cabin with 100 feet of frontage on the Black River.

You may dock your boat right on the Black River with access to 45 miles of Inland Waterway and the Straits of Mackinaw. Fishing is superb right from the dock! Or if you prefer, use the waterway to access the inland lakes [Mullet and Burt etc.] or Lake Michigan to fish and/or cruise to Bois Blanc ( Boblo) or even Mackinac Island.

My Cabin has a 10' x 65' Sun Deck, Full Kitchen with Dishwasher and Garbage Disposal. I have a gas Barbecue with Outdoor Patio Furniture and I have a fire pit down by the river to enjoy warm nights under the stars.

Springtime brings out the migratory birds and water fowl which are rarely seen anywhere else.

Other activities include bicycling on Mackinac Island that is 11 miles from the Cheboygan inlet, [25 minutes by car] water skiing, golfing at world class courses, and mushroom hunting in the spring.

There is also a Restaurant / Bar with entertainment within walking distance. They have a fish fry every Friday night, GREAT Pizza and a full menu for those nights you just feel like relaxing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

Why the Owner Chose Cheboygan:
I bought the Cabin because of the location on the Inland Waterway, it's location to Mackinaw and the Straits of Mackinaw. I also love to be there in the spring when the migratory water fowl are plentiful.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The place is quiet, the dock is very relaxing and very nice in the morning with coffee and also at sunset. The beaver swims by promptly at 9PM [you can set your watch by it] Also, The neighbors are helpful in a fix but not even noticeable on an average day.
