About the Property
4 Bedroom, 3 Bath (sleeps 10) Cottage With Decks, Dock And 113 Feet Of Beach
Want some solitude? Choose the upstairs master bedroom, with a king size bed and private balcony overlooking the lake. Imagine yourself waking up to a serene view of the sun rising over the lake, while enjoying a cup of coffee from your in-room coffee pot. This floor also has a bedroom with a double bed and bathroom with a shower.
If you prefer the feel of the North, head down to our walkout level. You will find a rustic living room, bedroom with two full-sized beds, laundry, and bathroom with large shower. Walk out the sliding glass door onto our 1,800 square foot, three-level deck which leads to the beach and dock. This area offers plenty of space for family and friends to chat, read, eat, play, nap, relax and enjoy the views.
For your convenience we have a washer and dryer, baby pack-n-play, high chair, life jackets, beach towels, chairs and sand toys, on site.
Starvation Lake is a spring fed all-sports lake. Motorized crafts are allowed from 11:30 am to 7:30 pm. This give you plenty of time to play on the water and still sleep in or enjoy the peacefulness of the woods. Public access is located at the North end of the lake for easy launching of your boat or jet skis. Swim in the crystal clear lake; build sand castles on the beach, sun bathe or fish for brown trout (stocked annually by the DNR) off our 30' dock. At night sit around the fire pit and enjoy s'mores while gazing at the clear star-filled skies.
We are just minutes from the trails and seasonal roads where you can ride your dirt bikes and 4-wheelers.
Are cities and great food your thing? We are centrally located between Bellaire/Shanty Creek, Lakes of the North, Boyne, Gaylord, Traverse City and Petoskey; you can even plan a day trip to Macinaw Island. Throughout the year, there are a variety of festivals, fairs and farmers markets in the area for you to enjoy.
Our lake house is the perfect place for your peaceful get away. Just pack your bags and let your vacation begin.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We bought this lake house when we both had busy careers and two teenage children. It provided us the perfect spot for family gatherings or a peaceful romantic getaway. Now we are both retired and the children are grown and moved away. This special place does not get used as often so we thought it was a great time to share it with other families to enjoy and make wonderful memories.
Why the Owner Chose Mancelona, MI, USA:
This property was perfect for us because of the proximity to the snowmobile trails in winter and the quiet crystal clear lake in the summer. You are surrounded by nature, but can be in multiple towns within an hour.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this property the minute we drove into the long wooded driveway and saw the view of the lake. This lake is not well know but is quiet,beautiful and clean. Every season has something special to offer its visitors.
