Situated on the tip of a peninsula that extends three-fourths of a mile into Big Mantrap Lake, this three and a quarter acre property has almost 1,100 feet of shoreline. The rental cabin shares the point of the peninsula with another cabin.
Named for its many bays, inlets, and channels, Big Mantrap Lake is known as a Muskie lake, but it is also home to large and small mouth bass, northern pike, and crappie. This 1,700 acre lake boasts many miles of undeveloped shoreline, making it a wildlife haven for deer, otters, beavers, foxes, loons, eagles, ospreys, and numerous other birds and animals.
The 1,400 square foot cabin was built in 1965, as a guest cabin for the cabin next door. It has had many improvements over the past six years to make it more comfortable and efficient. The interior is finished in knotty pine, giving it a true north woods feel. The 24' x 24' Screened-in Porch that overlooks the lake is perfect for bug-free eating and relaxing. It is also a great play area for kids, particularly during inclement weather.
The waterfront is highlighted by a 100 foot dock which has a large platform, as well as a boat lift for a ski or fishing boat. The dock is perfect for sunning, swimming, dock fishing, or just sitting and enjoying the privacy it affords; it also provides a jumping-off point for kayaking, canoeing, water skiing, tubing, fishing, and other water related activities.
Sleeping space is maximized. One bedroom is outfitted with two sets of bunk beds, and the other has a queen-size bed. A double bed is located on the porch, and a sofa in the living room converts to a double bed.
