Property description

Beautiful 2 BR cabin on the South Shore of Lake Independence. Large living space with large eat in kitchen, sun porch overlooking deck/lake, living room, 42' flat screen TV (Direct TV). 2 small adjoining bedrooms upstairs (1st BR room has queen & twin, 2nd BR has King bed). Cabin rental includes wireless Internet, fire pit/enough wood for at least one fire, dock, canoe, 12' fishing boat/5 HP Honda motor, gas grill. Bring your groceries and plan on a relaxing stay, if you forget something Big Bay is only 5 mins away with a general store. Big Bay is a small town, there are a couple places to grab a burger and if you prefer fine dining or the vibe of Marquette's lower harbor/ historic downtown area, its only 25 min drive to Marquette. Lake Superior/Squaw Beach is 5 minutes away so you can enjoy the big lake at your leisure. Lake Independence is large enough to easily fish or water ski on yet not crowd each other. Very private setting, cabin on one side and empty lot on the other side of the cabin. 170' of Lake Independence beach frontage. Good swimming out front, shallow to end of dock then becomes deeper so great for kids and grown ups. Sand bottom with some small stones.
