Owner info

About the owner: I grew up on this lake and am glad I had an opportunity to find my own slice of heaven on Lake Missaukee as an adult. There is something truly magical about this lake and this community. It is an undiscovered gem.

Why the Owner Chose Lake City, MI, USA:
This property has it all. Quiet neighborhood. Steps from the lake. Your own private dock. Large Deck to enjoy the views or BBQ your dinner. Spacious cottage with amazing Front Room. Outstanding views of Lake Missaukee.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
If you are looking to relax, this quiet private neighborhood is for you. The fishing is excellent, even from the end of the dock. Many evenings look to the North and you may just spot one of Lake Missaukee's resident bald eagles. Relax after an amazing day on the lake on our large deck, or cap off the day by grilling your favorite meal as you watch the ducks and geese fly passed as they settle in for the evening too.
