Property description

Nestled in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the Stonington House offers a relaxing retreat for families, groups of friends, retreats, events and the like. The lodge is located over 3500 feet on the shore of Lake Michigan's Big Bay de Noc to enjoy fishing, swimming, boating and water pleasures. All 237 acres of private property, totally surrounded by the Hiawatha National Forest, are yours to explore & enjoy!

The main house features a 16 foot stone fireplace in the great room, regulation-size pool table, full bath, expansive kitchen, dining table seating 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 sunsets. 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!
