Property description

A family owned cottage on the west shore of Lake Esau in the private community of Presque Isle Harbor. 3 bedroom , two bath on two levels, large deck. Very quiet and private setting. Miles of private paved roads, very little traffic. Private beaches on lake Huron and Grand Lake.

The cottage is set back 300 feet from our private paved access road and 40 feet from the lake front. There is lawn on all sides - woods in the back providing privacy. A year round residence on one side and a heavily wooded vacant lot that we own on the other.

Lake Esau is 750 acre all sports lake with 1/2 mile of protected un-developed shoreline and private cottages.
You can relax on the 12x30 covered porch or sit in a chair on the lawn and enjoy a great view of the Lake.
The interior of the cottage is bright and airy with large windows in the front and a great view of the lake. A bay window dinning area overlooks the lake.
Enjoy a camp fire by the lake in the evening ( wood provided). Fish from the 40 foot dock. Launch your own boat from our private ramp on the east shore of the lake. Dock your boat up to a 24 length. A canoe and 12 Ft. fishing boat are provided..
The water is crystal clear - great swimming. The depth increases gradually - good for children. The lake bottom is a mixture of smooth stone, fine gravel and sand. The bottom is clean - no weeds or muck. Good bass fishing from our dock. Boat traffic is Light. A Swimming raft is anchored just offshore.

There are three private Sandy Beaches at Presque Isle Harbor Marina and Grand Lake - within the assocation boundaries. The new Range Light Park beach is nearby.. a great place for small children. Boat Lauches on our lake,Grand Lake and Lake Huron.

Enjoy over 3000 acres of private association land with quiet paved roads and miles of nature trails thru the woods or along the lake shores. This area is ideal for cycling, hiking, walking or jogging. Take a drive at dusk to see wild Turkey and Deer. Canoe around the lake at dawn or dusk for good wildlife viewing - which includes many Waterfowl Species. Search for fossils on the lake Huron shore.

It's a 5 minute drive to the Public Library, Post Office and General Store in the village of Presque Isle.

Drive just 3 miles or ride your bikes on the paved bike path to Presque Isle Harbor Marina complex on Lake Huron - the only natural harbor on the west shore of the lake. There you will find the DNR sheltered boat harbor, the Portage Restaurant, the new and 'old' Lighthouse Parks, pizza shop, general store, Great Lakes Museum, gift shops, ice cream,fishing charters and a free Lake Huron boat launch with paved trailer parking.

It's a 20 minute drive to major shopping and Golf in Rogers City or Alpena. 90 MINUTES TO MACKINAW CITY AND ISLAND FERRYS.
