About the Property

6 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom, Outdoor Hot Tub, Home Theater, Game Room, Beds For 18+

My Grandpa started coming to Mullet Lake in 1946 and it became a family tradition! My Dad, Uncle, and Aunt have been up north every year of their lives, and now my generation comes up every year! My dad's dream was to buy a cottage, and he finally did a few years ago. Now after a lot of renovations to make it comfortable and fun for our growing family of 20+ we are thrilled to be sharing our cottage and tradition with others that love being "Up North"!

Our cottage is located on the sandy west side of Mullet Lake, half way between Indian River and Cheboygan and close to 1-75. It's also just north of quaint Topinabee Village, which has a small market, bar, restaurant, and park for the kids.

We've spent the last few years updating the cottage to provide accommodations for our growing family, while still maintaining the charm of up north. Those accommodations include an outdoor hot tub & shower, game room, home theater, and beds for the whole family!

When you walk into the house you are greeted by a large entry way/mudroom with high ceilings and skylights that flood the room with natural light. Lockers provide space for you to hang your coats and personal belongings as well as store your fishing poles.

The main floor living area and kitchen has an open concept and is great for entertaining friends and family. The updated kitchen has new granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, as well as cutlery, pots and pans, dishware, glassware.... all of the kitchen items essential for the cook of the family. The long kitchen table seats 8 and there is an "overflow" table for 4 in the sunroom, just off the kitchen & there is a picnic table & an additional table for 6 outside on the covered deck. This is a great place to sit in the summer, under the fan, and enjoy the sounds of the lake and kids playing in the big yard or soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi while listening to the stereo from the outdoor speakers.

The sun room is spectacular, with 7 sliding doors that make the room feel like you're outdoors; the view of the lake is beautiful! There is a large comfy sectional couch that is perfect for laying back and watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee and the local morning paper or catch up on the sports scores from the night before on the flat screen TV. This is also one of thee best spots to catch some serious vacation zzzzzzz!

The living room has a gas fireplace, lots of comfortable seating, and a cozy built in nook for the kids. There are all kinds of magazines to read, as well as a very large flat screen TV above the mantle. The large living room window provides a pretty view of the lake too. There is also a washer & dryer conveniently located on the main floor. Brand new carpet has been put in all the bedrooms, the upstairs hallway and stairs. Cable and WIFI are also available throughout the house.

Outside there is a large yard that includes a newly built deck, an outdoor shower, Jacuzzi, a large propane barbecue grill, seating for outdoor dining and lounging, a custom fire-pit, and a 50 foot dock with steps so everyone can get easily get in & out of the water. We have added three moorings for renters to tie up those all important water toys. The lake is very shallow in front of the house & everyone will enjoy the private, sandy beach..... perfect for the little ones to splash and play in the water!

The yard has also been newly landscaped with flowers that bloom through the spring & summer.

Once everyone is worn out from a full day in the sun, you can head inside to the game room for family fun! We have classic arcade games like Pac Man, Golden Tee & pinball as well as a dart board, foos ball, and plenty of other fun games. And don't forget the board games! Monopoly, Trouble, Clue, Life.................all the classics! Next to the game room is a newly built home theater with large reclining leather chairs for 6 and an additional leather couch that turns into a bed for extra space. Dim the wall sconces, grab some popcorn & put your favorite movie in the DVD player and blast the surround sound for the 'full theatre experience'! A great space for the teenager in the family to spend the night.

Day or night, there is always a great room to hang out in!


The master suite is gorgeous! It boasts its own private balcony with lake views, sitting area with flat screen TV, comfy couch and desk. The bedroom area has a fireplace, a 2nd flat screen TV, king size bed (sleep number mattress). There is a roomy closet and a private bathroom with hardwood floors, large vanity & a great spa like shower with a bench, 2 standard shower heads as well as a waterfall showerhead. You won't get cold getting out of this shower with the heated ceiling lamp and bath sheet size, plush towels!

There is another large lake view bedroom with king size bed and flat screen TV. A 3rd bedroom has its own private en suite, king size bed, large closet and flat screen TV. The 4th bedroom has 2 brand new sets of bunk beds, a chest of drawers and nightstand; this room is perfect for little kids. The upstairs main bathroom is all brand new, with 2 vanities and a tub/shower.

Downstairs is a large bedroom with a king bed and flat screen TV that is perfect for grandparents! It's right next to the bathroom and doesn't require going upstairs. There is also a second main floor bedroom with two brand new sets of bunk beds and a pull out couch and its own private bathroom with a shower. There is a flat screen TV mounted on the wall that plays DVDs.

There is plenty of comfortable space to sleep in this large home and all the bedding in every bedroom is brand new!

Even though Mullett Lake is very popular in the summer months this is a great vacation destination all year round......

Come view the bold, beautiful colors of the leaves in the fall and sit around the cozy fireplace telling family stories and drinking hot chocolate or enjoy the fluffy snow in winter with snowmobile trails right outside our door or decide to go skiing for the day to nearby Nub's Nob or Boyne Mountain.

In any season this is a great cottage that can be a part of creating family memories to last a lifetime!
