Merry Mullett Lake House



*LAKEFRONT (Mullett Lake)

*Parking: 2 cars MAX. Boat trailer parking challenging

Only 30 minutes from the Mackinac Bridge, the Merry Mullett Lake House is an old school family cottage.  It has slanted floors, which some claim feel like the Mystery Spot.  It is not ideal for people with vertigo.  Located on popular Mullett Lake, this home sleeps 6, having 3 bedrooms and 1 ½ bathrooms. With picnic table, 2 deck areas, lawn chairs, and a gorgeous view, guests will enjoy their time relaxing and resting after a long day of fishing, boating, and swimming. The propane grill on the property will also speed dinner along, while the dogs and kids play in an open area. A private 60 ft. dock also accompanies the property, PLEASE DO NOT MOOR YOUR BOAT ON THE DOCK, THERE ARE BUOYS PLACED BY THE DOCK TO TIE OFF YOUR BOAT. However, the dock can be used for short periods of time, going to the bathroom, stopping to pick up lunch, to fish, etc...

Rails to Trails (take a look) is within steps of the property; feel free to bring your bikes or walk the trails! This cabin is right off M-27, and while the majority of guests don't hear the traffic, we want to be sure you are aware that the state highway is nearby.  Cheboygan, just 8 miles away, is a quaint city, with many historic sites. Golfers will enjoy the courses just a few miles from the property, and hunters will appreciate the populated gaming areas nearby.

Bathroom: 1 full bathroom on main floor

                       ½ bath on 2nd floor

Beach/Swimming: Guests can swim from the shore or the dock. The layout is as follows: grass-water-sandy bottom lake (very clear). The Michigan DNR has been on top of the Zebra Muscles issue the past 2 years. There are barely any left. Owners have not seen any in a year. As a precaution, some guests may feel more comfortable wearing water-shoes while swimming. In addition, a public beach is about a ½ mile up the road.

We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Parking: There is plenty of parking for 2 cars in the driveway and 1 possible space behind the house. If you have a truck/trailer combination you could park along US-27 shoulder.

Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on.  Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we’ll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.
