ENJOY THE PEACEFUL BEAUTY OF STARVATION LAKE

Mancelona House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath (sleeps 10) Cottage With Decks, Dock And 113 Feet Of Beach

After following a long beautiful wooded drive you will arrive at our three-story lake house overlooking pristine Starvation Lake. Step onto our covered porch and begin your relaxing vacation. Upon entering you will find yourself in a tree house setting, bright open floor plan, wood ceilings and a wall of windows overlooking beautiful Starvation Lake. This level includes a private bedroom with a king size bed, closets and a bathroom with a tub/shower. Down the hall a newly renovated, fully outfitted kitchen with stainless steel appliances and peninsula for eating awaits you. Or, you can dine at our large table overlooking the lake. Better yet...how about dining al fresco on the first floor deck with spectacular views. A homey living room complete with a wood burning fireplace, 42' flat screen TV, including cable, makes the first level a place you'll never want to leave.

Want some solitude? Choose the upstairs master bedroom, with a king size bed and private balcony overlooking the lake. Imagine yourself waking up to a serene view of the sun rising over the lake, while enjoying a cup of coffee from your in-room coffee pot. This floor also has a bedroom with a double bed and bathroom with a shower.

If you prefer the feel of the North, head down to our walkout level. You will find a rustic living room, bedroom with two full-sized beds, laundry, and bathroom with large shower. Walk out the sliding glass door onto our 1,800 square foot, three-level deck which leads to the beach and dock. This area offers plenty of space for family and friends to chat, read, eat, play, nap, relax and enjoy the views.

For your convenience we have a washer and dryer, baby pack-n-play, high chair, life jackets, beach towels, chairs and sand toys, on site.

Starvation Lake is a spring fed all-sports lake. Motorized crafts are allowed from 11:30 am to 7:30 pm. This give you plenty of time to play on the water and still sleep in or enjoy the peacefulness of the woods. Public access is located at the North end of the lake for easy launching of your boat or jet skis. Swim in the crystal clear lake; build sand castles on the beach, sun bathe or fish for brown trout (stocked annually by the DNR) off our 50' dock. At night sit around the beach fire pit and enjoy s'mores while gazing at the clear star-filled skies.

We are just minutes from the trails and seasonal roads where you can ride your dirt bikes and 4-wheelers.

Are cities and great food your thing? We are centrally located between Bellaire/Shanty Creek, Lakes of the North, Boyne, Gaylord, Traverse City and Petoskey; you can even plan a day trip to Macinaw Island. Throughout the year, there are a variety of festivals, fairs and farmers markets in the area for you to enjoy.

Our lake house is the perfect place for your peaceful get away. Just pack your bags and let your vacation begin.

We bought this lake house when we both had busy careers and two teenage children. It provided us the perfect spot for family gatherings or a peaceful romantic getaway. Now we are both retired and the children are grown and moved away. This special place does not get used as often so we thought it was a great time to share it with other families to enjoy and make wonderful memories.

Chris purchased this house in 1999

This property was perfect for us because of the proximity to the snowmobile trails in winter and the quiet crystal clear lake in the summer. You are surrounded by nature, but can be in multiple towns within an hour.

We fell in love with this property the minute we drove into the long wooded driveway and saw the view of the lake. This lake is not well know but is quiet,beautiful and clean. Every season has something special to offer its visitors.

Starvation Lake House

  • 5 of 5
Everything was great during our stay...It was two families, a total of 9 of us...5 kids and 4 adults. The house is very clean and the owner is very easy to work with and super nice. The lake is very quiet and our kids had a great time kayaking and swimming. Make sure you do a day trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes, a bit of a drive, but well worth it..Also, go to Harbor Springs for another day trip, very nice town with a nice small beach.

Reunion Destination

  • 5 of 5
Our family came from Virginia and Nebraska to meet in the middle of Michigan and it worked so well. This destination was a home away from home with privacy for each family unit and lots of common space. The outdoor decks and water activities were the favorite of the whole family. Playing in the water, kayaking, swimming, fishing, building sand castles and s'mores were great fun. The main deck was huge and allowed quiet space for reading as well as eating outside and playing games. We would highly recommend the cottage! You will not be disappointed!

The house was perfect for our family dynamics with the separate floors and restroom facilities. It's a lovely home. The scenery was beautiful. We appreciated the ample parking and dishwasher!! We thought all the stairs were great for getting in a little exercise on vacation, outside and inside. Everything was well provided for and communication with the owners was easy and quick. A wonderful stay.
