Property description

Welcome to the meadows.......Big Creek.

Built only seven years ago, our log home features all the amenities of a first class home from the start of the art kitchen, with granite counter tops and all stainless steal appliances to the handcrafted woodwork found throughout the home. Two fireplaces compliment the great room and the mancave downstairs.

Located on a large section of private waters on Big Creek you can walk out the back door and fish secluded area or just watch the kids play on tubes in the waters. Walking down the nearly quarter mile driveway leads you to vast areas of snowmobile and walking trails. Large sections of state land for hunting deer and upland game with this area being known for its grouse and woodcock populations.

Two miles from the world renowned fly fishing destination North Branch and Main Branch of the Ausable River . The outdoor enthusiast is always within minutes of their destination.

Golfers are fifteen minutes from the world class Garland Resort and only forty minutes from the beautiful courses of Gaylord area.

Snowmobilers can take the driveway and go any direction, taking ground trails that cover huge areas of northern lower Michigan. Cross country skiers can travel 15 to 20 minutes to Farbruss Corners by Fredrick or to majestic Garland Resort, Lewiston.

Walking out the door and skiing on 60 acres which the home owners often do is always an option as well.

If just relaxing getting away from it all is your passion then enjoy the swing on the large porch with your morning coffee or sit on the large back deck overlooking the river with a portion being screened for comfort.

All together this is what northern Michigan Outdoors is all about.

Why the Owner Chose Grayling, MI, USA:
We built this log cabin because of it's abundance of wildlife, and its access to the local rivers. We have enjoyed the beauty that it presents to us on a daily basis.

Surrounded by freshwater streams including the one it's located on. The big creek has a surprisingly large amount of natural trout in it.
