Located on Jewel Lake in Barton City, a small town with with a grocery store, gas station, bar, ball diamond, tennis court and post office. The lake is part of the Huron National Forest with boat launch, swimming beach and acres of land to hike in, see wildlife or bird watching. There is a bald eagle on the lake which is loaded with blue gill, perch, walleye, pike, bass and turtles. Lake is very calm during the week, busier but not crazy on weekends with an island oasis to hike on. ATV trails are close by and run through the forest.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Our children learned to fish, swim, boat and have many adventures over the years on the crystal clear waters Jewell Lake. Many memories were created around the fire pit, telling stories while making s'mores.

Why the Owner Chose Barton City, MI, USA:
Barton City is a small rural town, surrounded by the Huron National Forrest and large farms. Even on the drive, you will find that you reach a point we like to call 'above the stress line' where the cares of the world fall away. Our family has a history here from the logging industry and we have always spent summers at the lake, teaching the kids a more natural side of life. You are within a 15 miles of awesome canoeing, tubing and kayaking on the AuSable River. There are many surrounding golf courses, 4 within a 15 minute drive. Harrisville is only 12 miles away on Lake Huron and their craft, antique and wine festival weekends are always a good time. The county fair in Lincoln boasts fun demolition derbies and many farming events. The Fourth of July is called 'The Biggest LIttle 4th in the North' due to the parade, festival in the park, and fireworks exhibit on the island you can see right from the front of the cabin. Labor Day weekend is when Barton City hosts a local Baseball Tourament so it is always a fun and packed weekend around town.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Being right on the lake, sitting on the swing in the evening was one of our favorite things to do, whether solving world problems or laughing with family. With so much of Jewel Lake being in the Huron National forest, it is not over populated and it is common to only see 2-3 boats out on the lake in the afternoon, or even none at all. It is an all motor lake, so you can bring your jet skis, ski boat or kayak and enjoy the water on your own terms.
