1. Lake water level--We cannot control the water level of the lake. It is controlled by the Army Corp of engineers. During the Spring and Summer, the water from Detroit Lake has multiple purposes including Recreation, fish habitat, as well as irrigation and drinking water for communities down stream. In the winter, Detroit Lake is used as a reservoir for flood control. Normally, Detroit Lake is at it's fullest in May and June and the Corp slowly lowers the level of the water level over the summer until it readies the Lake for the winter precipitation.
2. Cable or Satellite TV-- Unfortunately, cable TV is not offered in the mountain town of Detroit and due to the location of the property, we have been unsuccessful obtaining proper satellite connection. Therefore, we do offer a variety of DVDs, board games and puzzles for family entertainment. There is also DVD rental available at the gas station across the highway.
3. Wifi--we do not have wifi. There is a cell tower in the middle of town giving excellent coverage.
4. WE DO NOT PROVIDE: firewood, Beach towels, bikes, boats, kayaks, canoes or a dock. Docks are not allowed on Detroit Lake, but you can buoy your boat in front of the cabin or rent a slip in the marina 100 yards away. You also can either buy or rent the other items in town or you can bring them with you.
