This is a newer lakefront property with sunset views over beautiful Paradise Lake. Cross the country lane to a private beachfront on a sandy bottom lake with cabana and "L" shaped dock. Bring your water toys but we will offer kayaks in 2019 for your use. Paradise is a great fishing Lake so bring your poles; some fishing tackle is available on site. Paradise Chalet is located just minutes from Mackinaw City and the ferries to Mackinac Island but offers you a private and peaceful retreat to return to. It's nestled in a quiet cove and surrounded by forest.
This spotless cottage is light and airy with lots of windows and amazing views of Paradise Lake. It offers everything you need to enjoy your vacation - just bring your groceries! The master bedroom adjoins the bathroom on the main floor and has a queen sized bed. The upstairs loft has 2 queen beds. The main floor has an open design with living room, dining room and kitchen. There is a very large deck drenched in sun which faces the lake. The cottage features central air, a new washer/dryer, DISH satellite and a water treatment system to remove that ‘country water’ that so many cottages have. Updates for 2019 to include WIFI, kayaks & bikes.
The location is so perfect to enjoy Northern Michigan. Situated minutes from Mackinaw City, the Mackinac Bridge, St. Ignace (the gateway to the Upper Peninsula) Cheboygan, the beautiful Inland Waterway, Les Cheneaux Islands, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Good Hart, and Charlevoix - the list goes on and on! The fall colors are unbeatable and there are lots of opportunities for viewing them. Organized bike rides, road races for runners and winery and brewery tours are very popular.
If winter sports are your thing, you are in the heart of it! Winter is so enjoyable here - ice fishing is very popular and hundreds of miles of groomed snow mobile and cross country ski trails and ski lodges are just minutes away. There is always something going on - ice boat races, chili cook-offs and annual Petoskey and Harbor Springs open houses in early December. Golf, fish, boat, swim, ski, hike, bike, antiquing, casinos, winery/brewery tours. What's your pleasure?
If you love biking, the North Western State Trail can be accessed through Carp Lake and passes through many communities along the way, including Conway, Oden, Ponshewaing, Brutus, Pellston, Van, and Levering. In 2018, the scenic route was recognized with a National Recreation Trail designation.
The spring and fall are great for bird watching - especially the hawk migration in early spring. We've personally witnessed it and it takes your breath away to see the hundreds of raptors circling the sky to make their annual crossing of the Straits of Mackinac.
Join us as guests and make this a memorable vacation spot that you will want to return to over and over again!
