About the Property
Two Bedroom, One Bath - Sleeps 4 Comfortably; 75 ft. Lake Frontage
Two bedrooms overlook the lake at this uncomplicated and simple cottage. It has one full bathroom, an airy dining room that opens to an outdoor deck, and a kitchen outfit with '60's appliances. It's cute.
We've filled the cottage with board games and a 'retro' tv that only plays dvd's and VHS tapes. Sorry, no cable here!
If you are looking for a tranquil setting on a largely undeveloped lake, with 75 feet of private water frontage on a sandy beach, then our 'Camp Wannabe' is the place where you'll 'want to be' i
You are crossing into the Upper Peninsula- an area known for its wild scenery, stretches of beautiful beaches, and bordered by three of the greatest lakes in the world!
Right out your front door is the scenic all-sports Brevort Lake- known for its fishing, wildlife and boating.
This lake is largely undeveloped, as Hiawatha National Forest accounts for more than 65% of the lake frontage, which adds to the serenity. The surrounding Hiawatha National Forest is larger than 1 million acres- great habitat for bald eagles, deer, and even moose.
Brevort Lake is a haven for walleye, perch, pike, and bass, if fishing is your thing. But traditional 'power' boating is an option, along with kayaking or wind-surfing.
Nearby, are hiking and biking trails such as the North Country Trail, the Sand Dunes Cross Country Ski/Hike Trail, and easy access to miles of groomed ORV trails.
If you want to get to the 'Big Lake', then the dunes and beaches along US-2 are 5 minutes away. These are a hot spot for summertime swimming and sun bathing.
Camp Wannabe is the best of both worlds!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We are Northern Michiganders, raised in Traverse City. We bought Camp Wannabe (formerly the 'Cozy Cottage') in 2013. We wanted an escape- and a place for the kids to catch frogs and get dirty. We'd rented places on VRBO before and had good experiences so we thought that'd we'd give this a try!
Why the Owner Chose Moran, MI, USA:
It's close to our home, so we can easily spend the weekend away at the lake. When we cross the 'Mighty Mac', we feel as if we literally (and figuratively) leave one place and enter another. The area appeals to us because it is low-key and simple. The cottage is off the beaten track, but it still has the basics covered (running water, electricity, indoor plumbing). The setting is very relaxing and peaceful. When you are here, you won't be overwhelmed with commercial offerings. For us, being lakeside, away from it all, helps us 'circle the wagons' and pay attention to each other!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
While we were still contemplating whether to buy the property, I sat down on the back deck. As I looked out over the lake, I felt a comforting breeze on my skin and heard the wind in the trees. I shut my eyes, and listened to the sound of water lapping at the shore. I could feel my heart rate s-l-o-w down. When I opened my eyes, I saw a bald eagle gliding overhead. I knew that this was the place.
