We live in Amish country. They provide the area with unique places of business including a bulk food store with items you don't find in your grocery store, Pioneer Place (unique hardware), Amish furniture, & Health food store.

Deer, Turkey and other wildife can be seen in the woodland and surrounding area and many species of birds make Lori Lane their home.

Field glasses will make bird watching and hiking the mowed trails more interesting.

Nearby are two golf courses, a Pioneer Museum, The AuSable Valley Railroad, horseback riding and canoeing on the AuSable River.

Groomed snowmobile trails, downhill and cross country skiing, elk viewing and more, are only a short drive away.

In the SPRING, melting snow brings maple syrup, wild flowers, and mushrooms. Spring is also the best time for viewing deer, turkey and migrating birds.

SUMMER is family time for hiking, fishing, swimming or basking in the Michigan sun. There is time for day trips to Mackinaw Island, or Light Houses along the shore.

FALL brings Autumn colors (one of the most

colorful spots is right here in Oscoda County), and campfires or quiet frosty mornings to refresh one's spirits after the nonstop rush of summer.

WINTER snow and frozen lakes bring joy to skiers, snowmobilers, and ice fisherman. The young at heart can enjoy a romp in the snow or a good book by the crackling fireplace.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: We moved on the family farm in 1965. The Chalet was built in 1976 on the 30 acres of woods on our farm. Reuel and I are now retired, but his last 10 years of employment were spent building log homes in the county and surrounding areas. Sara spent 20 years employed by the AuSable Valley Nursing Home in Fairview. We have 3 sons who helped us with the mowing and cleaning as they were growing up. They now live in Goshen, IN, and Columbus, OH. Over the years, it has been our pleasure to meet many people, from many walks of life. Just this week, one of our renters said they have been coming here since our children were small (30 years). Our cottage has been updated each year and many return to see what is going to be new this year.
