Available May through September. This home is nestled in a beautiful, wooded area of Northern Michigan. Located at 1226 Rams Road, Indian River, it sits at the south-end of Mullett Lake in Pigeon Bay.
The house has both a furnace and gas fireplace/stove. There is a full kitchen, dining area, closed in porch (ideal for evening card-games) and a large deck. You will find the house to be clean and furniture in good condition. There is one downstairs bedroom with a double bed. There are two upstairs bedrooms. One has a double bed, bunk-bed set and one twin bed. The other has a double bed and sofa-bed. The living room also contains a sofa-bed. There is also a sleep cot available.
The evening sunsets take your breath away. The lake in front of the house is sandy, shallow and ideal for children. Lake depth in front of the house for approximately 100 yards is 24-36' deep. The boat dock and lift are available for your use. (Boat lift accommodates flat bottom fishing or ski boats under 3,000 pounds. Deep draft - V bottom boats will need to use the mooring approximately 75 yards off the boat dock.)
A gas barbeque grill, picnic table, fire pit, horseshoes, volleyball/badminton, two kayaks and lawn chairs are available for your enjoyment by the lake.
Mullett Lake is a 10-mile long, spring-fed, crystal–clear lake. Pigeon bay is calm and ideal for fishing (walleye, bass, pike, trout, perch and muskie) or serious water skiing. Pontoon, water ski and fishing boat rentals are nearby.
The lake is part of the great inland waterway, by which one can boat 45 miles through a wildlife-filled, scenic chain of lakes and rivers starting in Pickerel Lake to Lake Huron through two locks, four large lakes and three beautiful rivers.
There's a local bald eagle that we see on a regular basis either soaring above the lake or catching fish.
If you enjoy river tubing, kayaking or canoeing, be sure to plan a ride down the Sturgeon River which can be arranged through Big Bear Adventures in town.
It’s only a short drive to Indian River or Cheboygan, only 40 minutes to Petoskey or Harbor Springs and 30 minutes to Mackinac. A trip to Mackinac Island is a recommended day-trip activity where travel is only allowed by foot, horse-drawn carriage or bicycle. The scenery and historic setting is wonderous.
Other area attractions include the famous 'Cross in the Woods,' the world's largest crucifix carved from a giant 55-foot California Redwood.
