This luxurious log home is located in the midst of Ottawa National Forest, on the shore of a crystal clear spring fed lake, just outside the small town of Iron River, Michigan. Hagerman Lake as it is called, named after the original owners of the surrounding property, is an excellent fishing lake both summer and winter.It has been highlighted in Field and Stream magazine for its record Northern catches. It is home to a family of Bald Eagles. Frequent sightings of the state bird, the Loon are made on the lake. A giant Woodpecker loves to awaken you some mornings with its rat-tat. If you get up during the night, make a point to go outside and check out the aurora borealis, a frequent sight in the night sky of the U. P. There is a fire pit in the yard lakeside to enjoy day or night, and ample wood is provided.
Well marked cross-country trails adjoin the property that is great for hiking and backpacking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter. As an added bonus, it is located in the heart of snowmobile country. Trail rides abound in every direction. Ice Fishing and Snowshoeing too! The home itself is a spacious 3600 square foot year round vacation home with all the amenities.
It has a beautiful wraparound deck, great for barbecuing, reading and relaxing. It is steps away from swimming and boating. There IS A DOCK and A ROWBOAT AND 3 KAYAKS for easy access to the lake. There is a great recreation room downstairs that has a TV with satellite (all the premium channels). There is an air hockey and foosball table for game enthusiasts. The ground floor has radiant heat floors. The great room on the main floor has a wood burning fireplace to add that extra coziness and warmth in the fall and winter.There is also a dining room table that seats 8, or once the leaves are added can seat up to 12. The house has three master bedrooms with adjoining baths. The main floor bedroom has a Jacuzzi bathtub and steam shower. They are all charmingly decorated and come fully stocked with bedding and towels. They are each on separate levels so afford complete privacy for two or three couples vacationing together. Since your comfort and satisfaction is of upmost important to us, we can not accept bookings of more than 8 total people (including children) at the cabin.
As an extra layer of security, we do have video cameras in the back and front of the cottage. There are no cameras inside the cottage.
