About the Property

4 bedroom, 3 bath cottage Including great private boathouse on All-sport lake!

'Fantastic swimming, fishing, skiing, and kayaking right out your door on this large all-sport lake, short drive to golf in Gaylord or Garland, separate boathouse sleeping area with private bath overlooking lake, close to town, yet you feel like you are in the woods.

This comfortable, well maintained, lakefront cabin is located on the north side of West Twin Lake, in charming Lewiston, MI. Enjoy the views from the lake facing windows, the three seasoned porch, or out on the open patio. Have your morning coffee on the dock while watching the loons. Lay in the shady hammock and watch the kids playing on the dock.

This cabin has the authentic knotty-pine 'Up-North' feel. One of the few homes on the lake to have a private bedroom/bathroom overlooking the lake. There is air conditioning in the main house. The home is fully supplied with all kitchen/linen items. All you need is your swimsuit and fishing pole! This home is ready for kids with games and bikes to use when you are not enjoying the lake. There is a comfy fireplace to warm up the cottage on those cool nights.

The lake has a sandy bottom is fantastic for swimming and the lakefront is complete with a private, 80ft dock for boat mooring and a nice sandy shoreline. The dock is waiting for you to pull up your power boat or to use our rowboat or canoe. There is a barbeque for your family cook-outs.

Sleeps 10 very comfortably.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1955

About the owner: This cottage has been in the family since it was built in the 50's. Originally built as a hunting cabin, it has been expanded a few times over the years but still has it's 1950's charm. None of the family lives in Michgan anymore but we still love to come to the cottage once or twice a year. We hope you will enjoy it the rest of the summer!

Why the Owner Chose Lewiston, MI, USA:
This property is especially great for young families because there is plenty of shallow sandy water to play in. There is great 'fishing for kids' I call it 'kerplunking'!! You can walk or boat over to the canal and toss your line in and catch a little 4 inch bass or sunfish in a matter of minutes. The kids love it! Of course we throw them back so daddy can catch them when the grow up :-) The charming town of Lewiston is about three miles from the cottage. We have a full service grocery store for all you needs. We have several great restaurants if you don't want to cook. The bigger town of Gaylord is a quick 30 minutes away if you need a little more shopping. We have some great golf courses in the area also.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is one of the few cottages on the lake with a sleepover boathouse - Even the McMansions cannot build this close to the water. Our cottage is situated on the 'best' side of the lake. We have a sandy bottom which makes swimming off the shore so much more enjoyable.
