Property description

If you're looking for the perfect lakeside family retreat, look no further. Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life at this newly renovated, quaint lake house situated on East Bass Lake in Gwinn, MI. Enjoy the water with a fishing boat, 2 paddle boards and 5 kayaks. In the evening you can play cards or boardgames, watch movies, surf the internet, relax while watching the sunset from the gazebo, and make s'mores at the bonfire pit. Our cottage is perfectly set-up for large gathering, boasting 5 bedrooms each with a beautiful view of the lake. The house is situated on a peninsula, so you have breathtaking views and water access on both sides of the cabin. This family retreat is fully furnished with linens, towels, kitchenware, cooking spices, water toys, bicycles, and cards/board games for everyone. We are located less than 30 minutes from Marquette, Northern Michigan University, Lake Superior theater, and Marquette Mountain ski area. This is a perfect location for a family vacation! Tahquemenon Falls, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Seney Wildlife Refuge, Porcupine Mountain State Park, Isle Royale, and Mackinaw Island are all within a few hours drive.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We recently purchased the Bass Lake Retreat from long time friends, Sue and Scott. We have spent the past 15 years, falling in love with this piece of heaven and when Sue and Scott decided it was time to sell... We decided it was too special of a place to let go. Now, we can continue to love our time here.. as well as provide a special retreat for you and your family. Although it is less than 30 minutes from our home in Marquette, we always felt like we were on vacation at the cottage! It became a great destination for large family gatherings, birthday celebrations, holidays, barbecues, and spending quality time with friends. Our fondest memories are swimming races across the lake, football games on the sandbar, learning to catch fish, and stories around the fire. The most unique part about our cottage is that it is situated on a peninsula in the lake, meaning that we have water on both sides. Not only does this make for beautiful views from everywhere in the house, but also waterfront access all around.
