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.

Indian Lake Golf Course:  A very popular, 18 hole golf course along Indian Lake. Just 5 miles from the Cabin.

The Kewadin Casino: It is approximately 10 minutes (7 miles) from the Lodge. 

Historic Manistique Water Tower : The Old Water Tower is one of the many historic sites in Schoolcraft County. Built in 1923 and constructed in the “Roman revival” style, it is also listed in the national register. The renovated building will provide space for arts related public events and public rest room facilities while preserving one of Manistique's unique and historic buildings.

Fayette State Park & Historic Townsite: 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. It is now a completely restored village including 22 historic buildings, museum exhibits and the visitor center, which can be toured May through October. The historic site is located in Fayette State Park.

Annual "best friends" get-a-way
This adorable "studio" cabin was perfect for our 2 night stay! It was clean and cozy and had all the amenities! Because we asked them to add a roll away in the living room, we utilized the porch as our closet and it was perfect!!! We would definitely stay there again!!!


Hi Vicki! We're so happy to know you enjoyed your stay, and were able to make resourceful use of the porch! It's great to know you all found the cabin to be clean and cozy; hopefully we can have you back!
