Property description

Welcome to the home page of Ford Lake Cottages.
We a spacious main home on Ford Lake near Fountain, Michigan. Fountain is about 15 minutes northeast of Ludington in the heart of the Manistee National Forest. The property is on a spring fed lake that has quiet hours after 7p.m. So you can enjoy the peace and quiet of a no-wake-lake after a day of fun on the water.

We have three rowboats for guests and there is a public boat launch about a mile away where you can launch your own boat or jet skis.

During the spring, summer and fall the North Country Trail is less than five miles away for world-class hiking and mountain biking. The Lumberjack 100 Mountain Bike Race is held at Big M ski area each June and draws professional riders as well as local amateurs. Summer is a blast on the lake of course with boating, fishing and swimming.

Winter in Fountain means snowmobiling. You can ride right to major trailheads right from the cabins. Baldwin, Wellston, Irons, Cadillac and Manistee Trails are rideable right from your spot on the lake.

The main house is turnkey, bring clothing, food and beach towels and you are good to go. The property is shared with three cabins that may have other guests in them but there is plenty of room for all.
