The living room and dining room has the full view of Indian River.

The bathroom can be accessible to both the hallway or solely the Master Bedroom.

The upstairs bathroom is large with 2 sinks, a large lighted mirror, toilet and a full-size tub/shower. 

To the right of the staircase, you'll see a loft sitting area, which can double as an extra sleeping area (futon) and TV, table and chairs. Go through this room and you are on your way to the 3rd bedroom.In the upstairs 3rd bedroom, with a nice partial view of Indian Lake  there is a set of twin bunk beds, plus an extra twin bed.

Big Springs "Kich-iti-kipi": Michigan's largest freshwater spring. Two hundred feet across, and 40-feet deep. Over 10,000 gallons a minute gush from fissures in the underlying limestone at a constant 45 degree Fahrenheit.  By means of a self-operated observation raft, visitors are guided to vantage points overlooking fascinating underwater features and fantasies. Ancient tree trunks, lime-encrusted branches and fat trout appear suspended in nothingness as they slip through crystal waters far below. Clouds of sand kept in constant motion by gushing waters create ever-changing shapes and forms, a challenge to the imagination of young and old alike.

Fayette State Park & Historic Town site: Fayette was once one of the Upper Peninsula's most productive iron-smelting operations. Located on the Garden Peninsula at Snail Shell Harbor. When the charcoal iron market began to decline, the Jackson Iron Company closed its Fayette smelting operation in 1891.
