St. Ignace house description

Rent this entire two story duplex located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula just 20 minutes west of St. Ignace (near Brevort). This home offers a spectacular view of Lake Michigan's north shore. You may walk for miles along the secluded beach front.

This duplex is ideal for large families, or 2 small families, and offers a 2 bedroom 1st floor (1 Queen, 1 Full) with spacious living room w/sofa, comfortably sleeping up to 4 people. The second floor has 2 bedrooms (both Queen) and a spacious kitchen/living room w/Futon and will comfortably sleep up to 6. The upstairs and downstairs have separate entrances, offering both the kids and adults the privacy they desire.

The duplex is easy to get to, located on West US 2, just 20 minutes from the Mackinac Bridge. The property is about 100 ft. back from the 2 lane highway. The highway runs adjacent to the beach, and is between the duplex and the beach.


Hiking: The property abuts a vast area of state and federal forest land and offers great wilderness hiking including Switchback Ridge which is a large inland dune just 1/2 mile away. There are some majestic views from that ridge line! As well, the popular North Country Trail that stretches from New York to North Dakota can be picked up just a few miles away. There are a network of trails and 2 tracks leading through the woods so be sure to bring your compass if you plan to do any adventuring.

Nearby Attractions: Nearby attractions include Mackinac Island (a ferry ride from St. Ignace), Tahquamenon Falls (1 Hr.), Whitefish Point (1 Hr.) the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie (1 Hr.). Pictured Rocks is about 2+1/2 Hrs away, but it is worth it! You can take the boat tour (though its a bit pricey) or just take in the land lover's view for free at Miners Castle. It's breath taking. If you go, don't forget to stop and stick your toes in the sand at beautiful Miners Beach - you'll see it through the woods from the lookout at Miners Castle. P.S. Don't expect a man made castle at the lookout, but it's no less impressive!

If you enjoy some occasional gambling, there are casinos in many of the 'major' cities of the UP.

If you just like souvenier shopping and tasting the flavors of the local cuisine, St. Ignace will have what you are looking for.

Fishing: Rent a boat or canoe (or drop in your own) in nearby Big Brevort Lake to work on a a fresh fish dinner (perch, pike, walleye, bass & panfish) for the evening. Alternately, charter a fishing boat out of St. Ignace and try your luck in the waters of Lake Michigan or Lake Huron.

                          Car: Necessary

                          The property borders Lake Superior State Forest land. The setting is serene, and the view out the front windows of either the upstaris or downstairs are spectacular. There are a network of trails in both the State and nearby Federal forest land. Switchback Ridge hiking trail runs along a steep inland dune (pick it up approx 1/2 mile behind the duplex) and offers a scenic view across the upper peninsula. You can also see across Lake Michigan to the lower peninsula on a clear day. This is a great place to escape from it all, while still being in close range to some of the upper penninsula's most popular attractions.
