If you’re looking for somewhere to wind down and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; a homely place to enjoy gathering with friends and family; or a base from which to explore the all year round beauty of Northern Michigan, look no further than our three story lakeside property, on the quiet south end of the spring-fed, Starvation Lake.
Nestled into woodland, with its own dock, fire pit and decked area over-looking the lake, this recently updated house provides all the amenities for a relaxing stay. The house itself sleeps 7: it has a beautiful galley bedroom (sleeps 2) where you can awake to glorious views over the glistening lake; and in addition to this there is a twin bedroom on the first floor, and futon and fold-out sofa on the first floor and basement - providing additional beds for a further 5 guests to lay their heads.
The first floor provides one bathroom, with shower and bath; a full kitchen with all utensils; and a cosy sitting area where you can end your day seated comfortably around the open fire. The basement holds the washing machine and dryer and storage space for any sporting equipment.
For those who simply wish to relax at the lake there is plenty to enjoy. The wake restrictions guarantee quiet mornings and evenings for those who wish to read, relax and take in the solitude that this house provides. The lake is renowned for its fishing and some of the best Browns in the state. For those looking for a more active get-away, you may wish to swim, kayak and water ski the lake. Starvation Lake is perfectly situated for those who wish to explore the countryside trails on snow mobiles or RVs, enjoy cross country skiing, biking and hiking.
Additional sporting activities can be enjoyed within close proximity: Manistee River for kayaking is just 20 minutes away; Shanty Creek for golf and ski enthusiasts lies 25 minutes from the lake; and it is only a 35-minute drive to Boyne Mountain ski, golf and zip line water park.
Only 45 minutes away from Starvation Lake lies Traverse City, Petoskey and Charlevoix; all which provide a range of entertainment, wineries and shopping opportunities.
Turtle Creek Casino is an alternative for those who want something a little livelier, beyond the pleasure of sipping a pint at the Hideaway Bar, which lies at the north end of Starvation Lake.+ More
