Eastern Upper Peninsula Michigan. Ideal day trips include Mackinaw Island, St. Ignace, Tahquamenon Falls, Pictured Rocks, lake Michigan beaches.

Other Activities: Watch wildlife on the lake, watch fireworks in downtown St. Ignace, kayak on Brevort Lake, take a pontoon to sand dunes and camp store and fish on Brevort Lake, visit Tahquamenon Falls year round...I love to cross country ski there and have lunch at the brewery. Rent snowmobiles and ride the trails of Eastern Upper Peninsula. Visit Mackinaw Island. Take kids to Thunder Falls waterpark in Mackinaw City. Spend an evening in Mackinaw city shopping and dining. Hiking on Brevort Lake south shore. Take kids to Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie. Take kids downhill skiing at Boyne Highlands. Take kids snowtubing at Silver Mountain on south side of Brevort Lake. Take kids canoeing at Seney Wildlife Refuge.

Golf: Golf: The Mackinac Straits area features beautiful shorelines, rustic woods and stunning views, where long, warm summer days continue into late evening. Golfing is a favorite seasonal pastime for visitors and residents alike. Long summer hours of daylight allow golfers to play the links late into the evening while enjoying the twilight of the Straits. The closest course for your enjoyment is the St. Ignace Golf and Country Club. Spectacular vistas of the Mackinac Bridge make this public course a 'must play'. Full pro shop with rentals and carts. Another option is The Mackinaw Club, which is a professionally designed 18 hole golf course. Featuring 24 hour tee time reservations, a driving range and open to the public the golf course has just undergone a facelift with brand new carts, flags, markers and an emphasis on turf management. The Mackinaw Club course features scenic views sprawling over 310 acres. This Jerry Matthews designed course is ideally located within minutes of downtown Mackinaw's unique shopping, dining and entertainment district. In Mackinaw City you can plan a great day of golfing and an evening of dining, or your morning practicing on the driving range followed by a scenic afternoon trip to historic Mackinac Island.

Ski: Boyne Highlands, Nubs Nob 55 minute drive. Searchmont in Canada is 1 hour 15 minutes.

Silver Mountain offers tubing and one run for skiing/snowboarding. Seven miles of cross country ski trails on the other side of the lake.

Cross country ski trails within 20 minutes - silver mountain trails, sand dune trails in Hiawatha forest, Hessel.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Wendy Kusler has been renting two vacation rentals for over 8 years. She offers extensive knowledge of the Mackinaw area, prompt response and attention to every detail inside the homes.

Why the Owner Chose St. Ignace:
There are so many things to see and do in this area. Pictured rocks, Tahquemenon Falls, Whitefish Point, Mackinaw Island, ThunderFalls waterpark, casino, snowmobiling, skiing, Lake Michigan. Most of all, I love the lake. Brevort Lake is an all sports lake with great fishing, boating and touring

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I love sitting on the deck in the morning and drinking coffee. It is so relaxing. The bald eagle often flies over, ducks come in for visits and we see plenty of deer. The house is decorated for a comfortable feel to all who visit. When trails are open, I can hop on snowmobile and ride to hundreds of miles of trails. My favorite loop is to ride the lake to 123, go to Trout lake for lunch and head back through the woods to Brevort Lake Campground and back home.
