About the Property

100 Wooded Acres With 2000 feet of Lake Frontage On A Very Private Lake.

Welcome to pristine, private Upper Holmes Lake in the center of Iron County. This cabin was totally re-modeled in 2013 with your 'Vacation Satisfaction' as its goal. The lakeside 1/2 of the cabin is all windows with a sliding glass door to the patio where you will find a picnic table and new gas grill. The lakeside half of the cabin has a complete kitchen, dining, and living area. The big bathroom, and 2 private bedrooms adjoin. The lake provides swimming, boating and good panfishing with an occasional bass, pike or walleye. This lake is home to beaver, otter, loons, songbirds and nearby nesting bald eagles. Deer, bear and grouse are abundant and a moose occasionally visits the lake. A firepit is in the yard and firewood is supplied for your hotdogs, snacks and relaxation. This cabin and its private 100 açres on a private lake, allow you to reconnect with nature and enjoy the convenience of a small town only minutes away. We encourage long term stays and will consider reducing the rates for periods over 30 days. The property is centrally located in the Western U.P. which allows day trips to all the scenic and historical sites in this area. 4G service call be utilized via a hike of 1/2 mile to a high bluff on the property. Also this bluff provides scenic views of the Paint river valley and Crystal Falls in the distance. A table located atop this bluff allows you to take a break, enjoy lunch and use your cell phone and computer. A RR train crosses the north end of the lake daily.This property is the total package for guests who want privacy, it is possible that you won't see another person. The cabin is off the grid and electrical power is provided by a Honda, quiet, generator with a start switch inside the cabin. Electrical service is provided through out the cabin and gas lights are also available in every room. The major appliances are powered by propane fuel.

While there are great trails for ATVs and ORVs nearby, these vehicles are not permitted on property itself.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We now own 100 adjoining private acres and 2000 feet of lake frontage. This property is part of our nearby 600 plus acre Certified Tree Farm Ownership of this property was a natural fit with our other farming and family interests. Our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren encouraged us to completely remodel the cabin and rent it out to others who can appreciate all the comforts of home in an off-the-grid private, natural lakeside environment. The kids and grandkids have already made future reservations to insure that the great grandkids can experience this natural environment as they grow up. The grandkids must think this is a magical site as they annually travel from Arizona, Colorado, South Carolina and Indiana to spend their vacation time, even if grandpa and grandma are not in Michigan. We live nearby and will assist renters in any way we can.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Falls, MI, USA:
The opportunity to purchase this property fulfilled our dream of owning this very private lakeside cabin in a very pristine, natural environment. A private boat launch, dock and swimming area is only a few feet from the cabin. The boat launch won't support boats over 14 feet

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There is high probability that, during your stay on this property, you will not see another person. In season, you may be able to pick your own mushrooms, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Organically grown fruits and vegetables are available to purchase in town. It is possible that you may see a bald eagle fishing for its dinner on the lake and loons swimming with their babies. We encourage stays of a month or more and will consider modifying the rate for stays over 30 days.
