About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This is a rustic cedar log cabin that has most of the amenities of home. Power is provided off-grid by solar panels with backup generator. The view from the front window wall and deck is the beautiful expansive northwoods and overlooks a semi-private lake that holds trophy sized northern pike and walleye as well as other warm water species of fish. The cabin is heated by a propane fireplace. The open great room has vaulted ceilings to compliment the cedar log wall construction. Use of boat and motor, and a canoe, are part of the package. A modern dock provides boat moorage and a relaxing place to view sunsets and enjoy the clear water of Porter Lake. Porter Lake is treated as a 'no wake' lake; water skiing and use of personal watercraft such as jet skis not allowed. Additional fishing and water recreation is available at nearby Cable Lake, which offers a public boat landing.

In addition to fishing, a network of gravel and two-track roads provide access to miles of potential ORV use, hiking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, bird watching, fall color touring, and hunting. The area is known to be some of the best habitat for moose in Michigan. Bald eagles are commonly seen from the cabin deck and loons are known to nest on the lake. Waterfowl, whitetail deer, grouse, and black bear are native to the area and abundant.
