Manistee Lake has good fishing for Walleye, Small and Largemouth Bass, pike and various panfish. The lake is not crowded and is fun to fish, explore and look at wildlife, like the bald eagle. Bring your boat.
The walleye season opens the last weekend in April. The same weekend is the Trout Festival, in Kalkaska.
Located very close to thousands of acres of state land and small streams. A very good place to go deer and bird hunting, or exploring. The many acres of state land help to reduce overcrowding. All very very close by.
A gas station nearby has REC gas(no ethanol) and other provisions for all your boats or off road vehicles.
Whether you want to relax and read a good book at the waters edge, play golf nearby at a beautiful golf coarse, go fishing on your boat or kayak on a very uncrowded and scenic lake. Take a picturesque canoe trip down the magnificent Manistee River not very far away. Boat, sail or waterski the wide open Manistee Lake, it's all available.
Great sightseeing is close by, take a short drive to Traverse City, Petoskey, or other surrounding destinations, it is all there for you.
The lovely wooded lot, sandy beach and boat dock, will provide you a place to really relax and have a great time. Just bring your jet ski or boat and launch it across the lake, less than five minutes from the property, and the boat dock to tie up to.
Looking for night life and entertainment? It is just a short 30 minute drive to the newly expanded Turtle Creek Casino!
The cottage is also just a few miles from the Grandview golf course with incredible views and a restaurant. If golf is your pleasure there many more courses within an hour.
The surrounding woods are wonderful for hiking, biking and off roading on the extensive ORV trail system. There is a dirt bike trail just minutes away from the cottage. Take advantage of the cooler spring and fall weather and ride the many trails that are nearby. No need to trailer your rides, you can ride along the side of the road in Kalkaska County.
Manistee Lake is especially popular for families with younger children as the sandy bottom extends out and is shallow and safe for play. The beach and shallow water at the property edge is really great fun for dogs to play as their feet can touch the bottom for quite a way out. Have a BBQ on the outdoor river rock BBQ, and take in the fabulous sunsets our lake is known for. We provide some firewood so you can enjoy campfires in the fire pit at the lakes edge...bring your marshmallows!

My whole family enjoyed many years going to the cottage. We looked forward to getting away from the city and We enjoyed many fantastic campfires at smelling the fresh air and enjoying the outdoors and some great BBQ's in Northern Michigan. I always liked to ride the trails and float down rivers too. I always looked forward to fall and some fantastic bird hunting while the fall colors took hold.

Why Steve chose Kalkaska
Easy drive from Southern Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. The location is centrally located, and close to some very quant towns.
What makes this cottage unique
There are many, but for starters. The lake is big and not congested. The walleye fishing is very good, thousands of fish planted recently, along with the ability for doing about all of the water sports.
There is a fire pit at the waters edge, where you can watch the sunsets while roasting marshmellows.
Next, the very close proximity thousands of acres of STATE land with many trails for offloading, biking and hiking etc.
Big rivers that are not very far away. They offer excellent fly fishing and canoeing.
In the fall there is hunting for deer and birds on many square miles of state land only minutes away.
I could keep going!!!
