About the Property

Expansive Greatroom, 6 Bedrooms + Sofa Sleeper, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Nestled in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the Stonington House offers a relaxing retreat for all ages: families, groups, friends, retreats, events and more. The lodge is located near 3500 feet of Lake Michigan's Big Bay de Noc freshwater shoreline to enjoy fishing, swimming, boating and water pleasures. It is also available to experience the four seasons including bird watching, small game hunting, snowmobiling, ice fishing and more. All 280 acres of private property are surrounded by the Hiawatha National Forest, yours to explore & enjoy!

The main house with a refresh in 2017 features a 16 foot stone fireplace in the great room, regulation-size pool table, full bath, expansive kitchen, dining table seating for 14+ and three bedrooms. The adjoining guest house provides additional living space, a gaming area including fooseball, laundry, sauna, full bath and three bedrooms. Stonington House is a comfortable gathering place for all ages!

The main lodge is surrounded by a large deck on two sides for added outdoor living. Relax and enjoy the beautiful sunrises. Or be entertained by a game of volleyball or horseshoes on the yard, bird watch on the dock, relax in a lounge chair, roast treats & sing around the camp fire, practice hoops, or take a hike. The possibilities are endless. No matter what the season or the reason, the Stonington house is the place to be - a relaxing retreat for all ages!
