Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We currently live in Petoskey and recently had the opportunity to purchase this wonderful property on Pickerel Lake that our son and daughter-in-law got married on in 2011. Since we only live 20 miles away, we will be able to provide you with any assistance you may need during your stay in a timely manner.

Why the Owner Chose Alanson, MI, USA:
This is a great central location that can serve as your home base for all of the wonderful recreational opportunities that Northern Michigan has to offer. Pickerel Lake is the quietest lake of the four inland lakes that connects to the Historic Inland Waterway which eventually leads to Lake Huron. It is an all-sports lake with great fishing and a public boat launch and sand beach and recreation area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A quiet and peaceful retreat that is close to everything that makes Northern Michigan the place to vacation! Great fishing and boating on the Inland Waterway. Great sandy beach and recreational facilities at Camp Petosega just across the lake free to the public. Award winning area Golf Courses. Close to Petoskey & Mackinac Island Ferry. Great biking trails. Shopping and Casino in Petoskey.
