TERRACE HOUSE (Manistique): Craftsman-style in-town home in Michigan's Upper Peninsula   Dog friendly

Pets Welcome







IN-TOWN: Manistique
PARKING:  3 cars MAX

Relax on the front porch of this classic Craftsman-style home, with the ideal mix of updates and original woodwork. Soak in the small town feel, with the convenience of exploring the Central Upper Peninsula with ease!

Take a 9-block stroll south, down to Lake Michigan, or 4 blocks west to local restaurants. Enjoy the local Manistique atmosphere, stroll the peaceful boardwalk or take a quick drive to Kitch-iti-kipi- known as the Big Spring--Michigan's largest spring--  in Michigan's Upper Peninsula where the water is crystal clear, and can be observed from a self-operated raft.

Indian Lake State Park is just a 9 minute drive (5.4 miles) ! Launch your boat, bring your ice fishing gear or relax on the sandy beach during your stay.  Indian Lake is the 4th largest inland lake in the Upper Peninsula with an area of 8.400 acres. It is 6 miles long and 3 miles wide.  In our experience, the sandy beach is rarely busy, and provides great family swimming opportunities within the roped off areas (Life guards are not normally present on this quiet, sandy beach) . Drive- in with your Michigan Recreation Passport, or purchase a day pass at the gate.
