Property description

Gorgeous custom home close to Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Indian River. 163' of sandy water frontage with a beautifully landscaped yard. Bring your boat to Pickerel Lake and experience Michigan's amazing Inland Waterway. Enjoy cookouts, campfires, and some of the best fishing right off the dock. The view is stunning, facing south across the lake at the Wildwood Hills. The frontage is calm and protected from the prevailing north and west winds, allowing guests to safely moor their boat and maximize their outdoor pleasure. Covered porches and open patios surround this home that is large, but cozy at the same time, with panoramic views from indoors.
