Munising cottage description

The cottage on lost lake is cozy, serene, clean, and has all of the amenities of home, but away from the mad rush. Sitting on the deck, and enjoying the 100 ft. Pines and taking in the lake view is the perfect escape from it all. The cottage is on a private road. It is accessible all year round. When you enter the cottage you are welcome by a large kitchen/ dining area, accompanied by a large living room area , all with tongue and groove vaulted ceiling. The cottage was lovingly built by a couple who live on the same lake. There is an immediate sense of serenity, and space. There are 2 bedrooms in the back. One is a double iron wrought bed with lovely oak furniture, many drawers, and large closets. The other has very new and solid bunk beds. In the living room, the couch is also a queen size pull out bed. There is one bath. It is really 2 rooms. The double sinks, and vanity, and washer and dryer are in a room adjoining the bathtub, shower, and camode.
It has a full kitchen, with complete utensils, pots and pans, dishes, spices, and all appliances, (except dish washer)
The deck has a small iron table and chairs to accommodate outdoor dining.
It is a walkout basement, with an adjoining dog kennel so that you can let the dog out in the middle of the night without having to suit up for a walk.
The lot will accommodate parking for a trailor, and a few cars. The entire property is 3 acres. Right off of the road are a number of trails that will lead you through the hiawatha national forest. You can enjoy them by foot, snow mobile, snow shoe, cross country skiing, etc. ... Truly a place for all seasons. We would ask, out of courtesy for the neighbors. That snowmobilers would respect the 15 mile an hr. Speed limit on the private road, and refrain from making noise with the snowmobiles after 10:00.
The cottage is set up with a phone, and internet. There is a tv with dvd player. There is a collection of dvds to chose from, or there are a few places to rent from in town.

          Sitting on the deck of this cottage on lost lake is the ideal escape from city life. It is situated just 10 minutes from the beautiful pictured rocks national lakefront, boat tours of pictured rocks, tours of lake superior shipwrecks, golf course, and the ferry to grand island. There are at least two locations in munising to purchase fresh and smoked fish from the local fisheries. There are a number of water falls to visit just a few miles away. You are immediately within seconds of several hiking trails in the hiawatha national forest. There are 2 beautiful public beaches in the area. Sandy point beach (in munising) and autrain beach further up highway 28. Both allow you to walk out quite a distance. In town you can take one of the lake superior kayaking tours, or there are many little stores just a few miles away that allow you to rent kayaks, jet skis, or simply buy bait.

          During the winter, the trails are transformed to beautiful cross country trails, or you can snow shoe. In town, you can rent snowmobiles, and access guides. The activities are year round. Whether you just want to go for a fall colors tour, or add to your rock collection, bird watch, or pick blueberries for a home made pie. It is the perfect location for any activity level.

          Year Purchased: 2002

          About: My family lives down state in a suburb of Detroit. We look forward to our getaways to Lost Lake, and the Munising area. We also have many wonderful friends that are neighbors there.

          Why Munising:
          My family and I first discovered this area while on camping trips about 20 years ago. We had been to Colorado, Alaska, and several places in Europe, but the Munising Bay, and Pictured Rocks on Lake Superior was just so special and breathtaking to us. Including the benefit that there was no waiting in line at the airport. We switched our cottage hunting location from down state to this area. We loved the cliffs and the water and the ruggedness, and the wild live, and the people that we met here. When we were shown this new cottage, and met the people who had built it and found out that it was a man and wife that were building their own cabin on Lost Lake that was it! This was going to be the place.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Several things made us fall in love with this cottage. It was not on a major freeway, so no noise from trucks all night long. The place was built with tender loving care by neighbors, and when the boys ran down the lake, they were immediately busy searching for frogs, fishing, just creating their own outdoor entertainment
