*LAKEFRONT- ON LAKE HURON
*SWIMMING ON PROPERTY
Need to take a break from your everyday life - then you have arrived at your perfect up north get away! The home is located on Lake Huron on the northern edge of Hammond Bay. Enjoy your privacy - the home is set back and completely invisible from the road and is on over three acres, boasting almost 300' of beautiful SANDY beach. The home is also nicely set back from the beach providing privacy from the (very few) beach walkers that you may see. During the summer months enjoy swimming in the amazing waters of Lake Huron. Our amazing beach boasts easy entry, shallow waters for wading, and great smooth rocks and boulders for exploring. Bring your kayaks and paddle boards and explore these amazing waters free from boat traffic or crowds. Strike out either north or south and spend your day walking as far as you would like on the easy walking beach. Watch American bald eagles and other birds in their environment while you enjoy our modern home.

Ocquoec provides approximately six miles of hiking, biking and cross-country skiing opportunities with three marked loops. The groomed ski trails are track set. Snowshoers and fat tire bikers - please take care to keep out of set ski tracks. Fat tire bikes are allowed but there are no groomed fat tire bike trails.
After hiking the trails, take a swim in the falls! At this site, you can see where the Ocqueoc River has cut a channel through the limestone bedrock that underlays the entire region. During spawning season, you can see the salmon actually swim through these underground channels. The remnants of an old mill race can be seen just above the falls.
