Book now and be sure to have a cozy home in which you can escape the hubbub of daily life! Our home is the perfect place to kick back and relax in the peace and tranquility of the North Woods.
Access to Lake Independence is just down the road. And the snowmobile trail is at the back door. Lake Independence is known for its Perch, Walleye, and Northern Pike - in summer and winter. Lake Superior is 3 miles away. Or you may opt to take advantage of the tranquility of McKenzie Bay. Our home sits on this small motor-free lake and offers great bird watching and abundant wildlife. If you time your visit right, you may be able to see the beauty of the moon shining across McKenzie Bay.
We are on County Road 550 just minutes away from the historical village of Big Bay. This former lumber town is known for having produced the wooden panels for Henry Ford's Woody cars and for producing Brunswick bowling pins. There are abundant opportunities for fishing, hiking, waterfalls, biking, swimming, water skiing, snowmobiling, cross county skiing, all within the picturesque area of Big Bay.
This is a vacation spot for all seasons for anyone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of daily living. The serenity and seclusion we offer is a great opportunity to spend time with those you love as you enjoy the beauty of watching the moon rise over the water, geese and ducks flying in and out, or witness an eagle or osprey catching their dinner. Song birds fill the mornings and evenings with their lilts.
Our family home offers the amenities of a home and is filled with memories of our parents and special family times. The walls tell the story of the love between our dad and mother and eight children.
Come sit by the outdoor firepit and enjoy the many splendors that nature has to offer and enjoy the shimmering beauty of the moonlight on McKenzie Bay. Or curl up by the indoor fireplace and enjoy the comfort of watching the dancing flames.

Year Purchased: 1972
About the owner: Our parents first came to this area deer hunting in 1937. From then on it was a love affair that captured their hearts and finally moving here permanently in 1972. For the 8 of us children it was a vacation paradise and has become home for 7 of us. Our parents taught us many strong family values and maintaining their home for others to share has become a priority since their deaths in 2005. You get a real taste of local history and the dedication to family and life that they shared.
Why the Owner Chose Powell, MI, USA:
If you enjoy watching birds out your window, deer grazing by the water, eagles flying over the water in search of dinner, watching the beaver swim, and the sound of a Sand Hill Crane, you will love our location. The rolling lawn is adjacent to the woods and gives a sense of privacy. This is truly a home to relax and enjoy your vacation, away from the busyness of the city, yet close enough to enjoy the highlights of Marquette and natural beauty of Big Bay.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is plenty of room and all the amenities of home. Lake Independence is only a mile away and is known for its perch, walleye and northern pike. McKenzie Bay offers solitude and fun catching perch or pike - when the ice is thick enough.
