About the Property
A Cozy Hand Scribed White Pine Log Cabin Lake Home
Our authentic 750 sq. ft. log home is built of scribed Upper Peninsula Michigan White Pine on 12 acre shoreline property, and has all the comforts of a cozy, fully furnished and heated home. Two bedrooms (1 double bed/ 1 single bed), pull out sofa, one bathroom (tub/shower), eat in kitchen, LG steam washer/dryer, wood-burning fireplace, cathedral ceiling and loft, and an open roofed log porch overlooking 1438 acre Gratiot Lake.
Enjoy a tranquil retreat, or the activity and attractions of any season - swimming, fishing, hunting, cross country and downhill skiing, and snowmobiling. Fish off the shoreline, or launch your boat at the nearby public access and dock your boat in front of the Log Cabin during Spring, Summer and Fall. Walk out onto the ice and fish in Winter. Gratiot Lake Road is a county road plowed to the cabin driveway in Winter by the Keweenaw County Road Commission.
Gratiot Lake has been known for generations for its Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth bass, Yellow Perch, Muske, and Smelt. (View the 2011 fish census at www.michigan.gov/documents/dnr/Gratiot_Lake_455455_7.pdf)
Snowmobile Trail Number 133 runs close to the NE side of Gratiot Lake, and is easily accessible by snowmobile from the cabin, via seasonal Iron Gate Road off the SW side of Gratiot Lake. Another trail, Trail 3, is only 5 miles away, where the trail crosses Gratiot Lake Road by US 41. Watch for the stop signs there. See the Links & Video area for the MIDNR snowmobile map link.
Enjoy eco-tourism. Learn about responsible use, protecting and conserving Gratiot Lake and its unique history, land area and watershed. See gratiotlakeconservancy.org. A nearby trailhead leads up nearly 400 feet to the Gratiot Lake Overlook, a 100 acre Michigan Nature Association Sanctuary. See michigannature.org.
Come prepared with plenty of food and fuel because of the wilderness location. Kitchen staples are provided, including salt, pepper, sugar, a spice drawer, oil, flour, pots and pans, plates, silverware, glasses, tea cups, coffee mugs and place settings. Just bring your groceries. Please leave a note if you finish up a staple so we can restock. Guests are invited to leave a signed/framed picture for our new Loft 'Guest Picture Wall.' Occupancy limited to 5 registered guests only. No gatherings of unregistered guests.

Children must be attended and supervised at all times due to proximity to the lake, the height of the front porch, and the classic log railings inside and outside which are tempting for children to swing on. The inside is not child proofed for infants and toddlers. Our daughter has been here since 2 years old and loves it....moreless

Year Purchased: 1870
About the owner: Like many families with roots here in the Copper Country, my family and I have been coming back for as long as I can remember to this property which was originally purchased by my Great-Great Grandparents, Joseph & Mary Eister, when Joseph worked at the Central Mine (5 miles away and presently part of the Keweenaw National Historic Park). Scott recently refinished the Hardwood Maple Wood Floor throughout the Home he personally installed 30 years ago, when this home was built in 1983. Some of the accompanying pictures are of Scott, his wife Marilisa, and daughter Anna enjoying family life in our unique area.
