About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)
The lake porch overlooks the water for beautiful mornings and evening meals. The dock is down a stairway, or you can follow a wooded path to the water at the other end of the three-acre property. You can explore the lake or the Peshekee River on the canoe that's provided, or launch your boat at one of four launches on the lake and tie it to the dock in front of the cottage.
The lakefront home is secluded and quiet, and the property is wooded. The property is shared with one other home and is gated and private, but situated within the boundaries of Van Riper State Park.
All the amenities of the Park are available. There is a four-and-a-half mile trail directly across the road, where you might be lucky enough to spot a member of the local moose herd. Within a short drive are many wonderful lakes, waterfalls, rivers, trails, hills. The McCormick Wilderness Tract is directly north and Craig Lake State Park is ten miles west. This is one of the most spectacularly beautiful, and least explored, areas of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Lake Michigamme is a picture-postcard lake with 95 miles of shoreline, 27 islands and over 4,300 acres of water. With depths down to 70 feet it also holds a wide variety of game fish-walleye, pike, bass, muskie, trout and whitefish to name a few. A few jet skis cruise the water on summer weekends, otherwise the Lake is home to canoeists, kayakers, pontoon boats, vintage cruisers, small sailboats, and fishermen.
The Peshekee River is steps away, and offers a beautiful setting for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking.
Boat rentals are available at the State Park or private campground next door.

About the owner: I've been enamored of the UP my entire life and each trip I find something new to love. Nature, people, culture, history, the Upper Peninsula is truly one of the great undiscovered treasures of America. Leave your worries behind and come up to the great northern paradise.
Why the Owner Chose Michigamme:
The Upper Peninsula reminds me of Maine--without the summer tourists. Spectacular scenery with waterfalls, rock formations, and clean, clear water. I can hike all day and rarely see another human being, or choose a trail where other families are having a good time. People in the UP are relaxed, friendly, and helpful. If you meet a local, be prepared to spend a half an hour passing the time of day and talking about the weather, fishing, and local hotspots.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Along with the dock, there are two secret beaches--one on the property and another just a four minute walk away. The last time I was on this beach, I shared it with a family of otters. If you canoe up the Peshekee Rver, you'll see painted turtles sunning themselves on logs protruding from the water. I've seen clear evidence of moose(!), but have yet to meet up with one in person. I like to hike the trails across the street in the early morning or late afternoon, and rarely see another person. Kayaking on the Lake in the early morning or late summer evening is peaceful and serene. While there might be a jet boat or two on the other side of the Lake in the afternoons, the Lake is generally quiet all day. Fishermen linger near the mouth of the Peshekee and by the drop-off to the southeast of the dock. If you have a boat, there are 5,000 acres of water on Lake Michigamme to enjoy. If you don't, go for a paddle on the canoe that's provided.
