Property description

Enjoy your stay at our cozy cottage on Manistee Lake. Decorated in cottage style. Clean, cozy, and really cute. A place where wonderful memories can be made!

Manistee Lake is especially popular for families with younger children as the sandy bottom extends out and is shallow and safe for play. Fish, waterski, swim, the lake is perfect for all. You can use our row boat and cruise the lake.

Grayling is really big on Canoeing. There are a lot of places to go. Shell Haven is the closest on Manistee river.

Manistee Lake is nestled in the vacation heartland of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Many vacationers visit this area because of its perfect location: Between Grayling and Traverse City: About a hours drive to all major destinations in northern MI (Ex. Mackinaw Island, Big Mac Bridge, and Sleeping bear sand dunes) . Don't forget the Traverse City Cherry Festival!

Looking for night life and entertainment? It is just a short 25 minute drive to the newly expanded Turtle Creek Casino! Look for antiques in nearby towns. The cottage is also just a few miles from 1 truly beautiful golf course with an incredible view.

The surrounding woods are wonderful for hiking, biking and off roading on the Snowmobile and ORV Trail system with thousands of acres of State land! . The trail is just minutes away from the cottage. We have parking for ORV's too. Manistee Lake itself has good fishing for Walleye, Small and Largemouth Bass and various panfish. The Manistee River is only 15 minutes away and offer some of the areas best canoeing and fly fishing.

We are nestled in a snow belt with thousands of miles of snowmobile trails. Trail heads is just minutes away, so you can ride from the cottage.
