Wonderful setting & rustic refinement!!!
Where to start? Room to roam, wonderful sandy beach,clean and orderly. I arrive by myself late afternoon unpack & grab a fishing rod. This is my "sanity" and what I was looking forward to. Walk into the water to the bottom of my shorts right in front & cast a surface lure. Ten casts. Three misses & five hook ups with the north woods feisty smallmouth! Pretty impressive. This place does not disappoint! It is all that is advertised & more. The owners handy work with wood is everywhere. Don't overlook the attention to detail of his furniture making & wood carving. It is an important part of the charm. Wild blackberrys were easy pickings. You only had a hundred yard walk! My wife's family arrived late that evening from the Milwaukee area. Sister in law, husband & 15 month old. They loved the place. Although I didn't use the sauna until they left on Wednesday. I could kick myself for not taking advantage of it's soothing powers earlier. I felt most connected to my wife, who passed away a year before, in the night sky. Absolutely do not miss the night sky! The abundance of stars. The Milky Way & the shooting stars. Outstanding! We had our own visiting loons. A pair. Adult & juvenile. Their song apitimises the north woods. Did I mention the eagle that visited every couple of days? And oh yes the feisty red squirrel that would scold & drop bits of "fodder" on you if you were too close to to his favorite tree! I could go on & on but I think you get the message. This truly is a place you "must" come to & experience. On a parting note. This is my forth rental in the heart of Michigan's U P. I have made it a practice to never rent the same place twice but I'm having second thoughts. Thank you Bill & family for sharing your little piece of paradise.
