About the Property
Luxury Lakefront Home 4BR, 3 Bathrooms, Free wireless Internet (up to 5 users)
This Non-Smoking home has lots of windows, vaulted wood ceilings, skylights, and an expansive view looking south at the lake and adjoining state land. It's a runner's and hiker's paradise - take the 'Forrest Gump Challenge' and claim a bottle of wine from the house collection if you can master it. Pontoon boat is available for a nominal fee (see below) and 3 Kayak's are included with the rental on this 'no-wake' lake, i.e., no Jet Ski's or fast boats.
Next to the 7000 acre Mackinaw State Park on Crooked Lake. Lake is over one and a half miles long with a beach at the far end. Great fishing.
Three other buildings are also located on the one acre lot including a two and a half car garage, a dog kennel, and a work shop. Also, a concrete half-court basketball area at the back of the garage.
Visit 3 very quaint towns in the area and close to all major Northern Michigan attractions, but without all the traffic!
