Loon Lookout is an A-Frame cottage with views of the lake on one side and a wooded area on the other. Although you are able to see other cottages from Loon Lookout, it is perfect for a single family getaway or as an additional home to other rented cottages. Sleeping between 4-6 persons, the A-frame home has a simple kitchen, comes with a 14' aluminum boat for guests to enjoy, your own picnic table and of course your own private dock. Feel free to bring your own kayaks or canoes to drop in the water! In addition, there are a couple of adirondack chairs to relax in as your roast your marshmallows over your private portable fire pit or the communal fire pit.

NettieBay is a great place to bring the family to enjoy your vacation. The outdoor fire pit, shared by all guests, is just the right spot for evening songs and storytelling. Lake Nettie is known as a wonderful fishing lake. Species of fish include: pan fish (blue gill, sun fish, rock bass, black crappie), small mouth bass, large mouth bass, northern pike, perch and the occasional walleye. If fly fishing is your passion, enjoy one of the many nearby streams of fish or the secluded 23 acre bullhead lake full of large mouth bass/large sun fish. Enjoy swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating on the bay. Also, you can take a nature hike through 2000 private acres and enjoy wildlife viewing. All available to you while staying with us in your lakeside cottage.

Internet: There is wi-fi in which guests can access while sitting on the Lodge patio. Signals in cabins are spotty depending on your provider. There is an 8ft. awning on the patio in case of bad weather. If you plan on "working" while on vacation, I would not recommend this property as the signal is temperamental!

If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I’ll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets.

The cabin was very nice and the host was very friendly I would defiantly recommend it to other people and the upgrade was good. Thank You very much

Jackie, we are so happy that you enjoyed staying at the Loon Lookout.  The views of the lake on one side and a wooded area on the other offer peace and quiet for your stay.  Also, it's great bird watching.  A little bit of everything to make your stay the best ever!  we hope to see you again soon.

Quiet and Relaxing
The cabin was very clean. The site was beautiful. I loved seeing the hearing the loons. It was also a perfect 'home base'. The bridge only 30 minutes away. We traveled to Mackinac Island and the Dark Sky Park one day. Sault Ste Marie another day. Our family of 5 even survived one bathroom for the week! The caretakers, Mark and Jackie, were gracious, polite and helpful.


Nettie Bay Resort--Loon Lookout is a pretty special place to stay.  You can not beat the convenience to the sites of the U.P., and then of course there are those lovely loons.  We hope to see you back again, Renee.

Beautiful escape!
We had such a wonderful time. This place is a true get away! No cellular, limited wifi, tucked in the woods right on the lake! AMAZING! The cottage was clean and had plenty of space. The row boat was fun. Fire ring for a beautiful night fire. I wish I had more time there. Owners are super nice and very helpful. We are looking forward to returning :)


Robert, we so appreciate that you fully enjoyed NettieBay Resort-Loon Lookout.  With views of both the lake and the woods, this property is certainly special.  We look forward to seeing you again.

Nettie bay resort loon lookout
What a great experience all around! A beautiful lake 15’ from your deck and a clean well kept A frame to stay with family or friends. Mark the owner is on site and very welcoming, knowledgeable proud of his resort and home town. As soon as I find out the dates for next year’s event I will be making reservations, and bringing lots of friends!


We love that you enjoyed yourself at the Loon Lookout.  It is such a sweet property.  I especially love how it is situated on the land, and  I hope that you were able to use the firepit.  Looking forward to hearing from you for future bookings!

Great place!
Enjoyed our stay very much! Perfect, quiet setting. Only complaint is there wasn’t much to watch on the tv. Other than that it was a perfect getaway spot!


We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay.  Loon Lookout is a great property.     We have over 70 properties for you to choose from, and we give a 10% returning guest discount when you book directly through us.  We hope to see you again soon.
