Curran cabin description

This is our family cabin on the lake, and we've decided to share it will a few lucky families. This is a quiet and beautiful lake with a fantastic, ever-changing view in the heart of the Amish rolling hills. Loons, Herons and eagles are common here, and I'm sure you'll see lots of other wildlife. This a clean, spring fed no-wake lake and there is good fishing as well. We spend most of our time on the deck enjoying the lake, or down near the water or on it. Inside the cabin, I'm sure you'll find it spacious (around 1300 square feet). It has an open floor plan, and is full of contemporary Michigan art from downstate. The master bedroom is quite large, and the other two bedrooms are somewhat smaller. The master has a king sized bed that can split into two twins. BR2 has a bunk bed in it, and BR3 has a full sized bed. The bathroom is average sized with a tub and shower. Everything is clean and functional. There is a television with DVD player, and a decent sized library of DVD movies. No television reception.

Bridle trails in the nearby Huron National Forest. Lots of hunting nearby, and great areas for Morel mushroom hunting as well. Our lake is a no-wake lake, and the boat launch is nearby. Please use the boat launch at the public beach for launching boats. Pull your pontoon boat right up on our beach. Canoe is available to renters. Firewood available nearby in town. I have tubes you can use. I have a beanbag toss game stored. Just ask. Here is a google map with other nearby sites


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: I'm an engineer at a firm in Oakland County, and have lived in the area for 40 years. We're new to renting a cabin, but we'll do our best to accommodate you.

                      Why the Owner Chose Curran:
                      We bought this cabin for the great view and waterfront access and beach. The cabin was built by the owner of a hardware store chain, and we were impressed by the design and quality of construction. We love this area, and have been coming to this lake for almost ten years.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      It's in the middle of everything, yet out of the way. The cabin is at the end of a cul-de-sac, so nothing but woods on one side and of course lake. Chances are you won't see any neighbors.
