Overview

Lewiston House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Listen to the call of the loons from a modern, 3 bedroom, 2 bath A-frame house located on the shores of serene, 415 acre Avery Lake near Lewiston, MI. A quiet place to appreciate nature and just relax. Area wildlife includes deer, elk, black bear, bald eagles and more. Enjoy excellent fishing for smallmouth bass, walleye, pike and panfish. Fly fishing for smallmouth bass is great in the summer and fall, and we encourage catch and release. Three kayaks, a canoe, a row boat (on which you can put your own outboard motor, up to 15hp) and a new STAND-UP PADDLE BOARD are provided. Numerous trout streams are nearby too.

Much of the lake is surrounded by Mackinaw State Forest, which provides miles of trails for snowmobiling, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, hiking and thousands of acres for hunting. About a half hour drive to the fabulous Garland Resort for golfing or cross-country skiing or less than an hour drive to Gaylord, the Golf Mecca of the Midwest.

The house is located in a very private, wooded setting, on a small island with a drivable causeway and bridge. There are three large bedrooms, each having access to outside decks. Also, there is a large deck off the living room with a great view of the sunset over the lake. The front of the house facing the lake contains large windows affording a panoramic view of the lake and surrounding hills from the living room and kitchen areas. The interior of the house is paneled in rustic knotty pine complemented by a cathedral ceiling. There is a nice lakeside deck, which provides access to a great swimming area. We want you to have a great experience here and will be happy to provide you with any information about area fishing, canoeing, hiking, etc. Maximum of six guests during any stay, please, and we have had a long-standing policy of no pets, as some of our regular and repeating guests have allergies.

AREA INFORMATION:

Montmorency County is probably one of the least developed counties of northern Michigan. Much of the county consists of state forest land. The area abounds in beautiful lakes and clear trout streams. Very close to Avery Lake, are small streams like Hunt Creek and Gilchrist Creek, each having gin-clear water with good populations of brown trout. Canada Creek is just north of Atlanta, and has some surprisingly good brook trout fishing. About 25 miles directly south, the Au Sable River flows through Huron National Forest and is designated a National Wild and Scenic River in this stretch. Great opportunities for floating this river exist, and you are welcome to transport our canoes and/or kayaks to the river for a great day of fishing or just enjoying nature.

In the northwest part of Montmorency County, the beautiful Pigeon River State Forest has abundant small lakes and some very decent trout streams as well. Try fishing on the East Branch of the Black River, or the Main Branch of the Black for wild brookies, or the Sturgeon River or the Pigeon River for brookies, rainbows and browns. All are within about a 30 to 45 minute drive from Avery Lake.

For golfers, Garland Resort is probably one of the nicest courses in the area. And of course there are the many fabulous courses in the Gaylord area.

Great dining is found at the Lewiston Lodge, about a 20 minute drive from Avery Lake, between the huge lakes of East Twin and West Twin. Lewiston, Michigan is located on East Twin and has a decent grocery store and additional great restaurants - like the Redwood Steak House.

About Daniel McCormick

We are Dan and Cheryl, and although we actually purchased the property in 2003, it has been in our family since the mid 70s. We both grew up in Toledo, Ohio, but we have been coming to beautiful Avery Lake since the late 60s, when we camped at the state forest campground. We now divide our time between Avery Lake, Ohio, and Florida.

Daniel McCormick purchased this house in 2003

Why Daniel McCormick chose Lewiston

We absolutely love the area that Avery Lake is located in. It is so removed from the hustle-bustle of downstate life. It is located in Montmorency County, which is probably the least developed of all the counties the northern part of lower Michigan. The lake water is of the highest quality. The drinking water comes from an 80 foot well and we think its the best!

We have two (now adult) children who were practically raised at Avery Lake in the summer, and they come back each year for a wonderful family reunion. The memories of this place are an important part of all of our lives, and Cheryl and Dan want to share with you the beauty that the house and area offer.

Avery Lake cabin

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time. Lake is beautiful. Row boat was provided - "dock" area could have been more user friendly. Cabin was nice except furniture was pretty uncomfortable- had it been warmer we would have spent more time outside and on the lake and probably wouldn't have noticed how uncomfortable furniture was. Dogs were not welcome although we could tell they have spent time there- would have liked to have included our dog. We may come back in the summer when it's warm and we can spend the day on the water.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time, and thanks for taking time to write the Review. It was wonderful having you as guests. Please know that since your visit we have replaced the couch and now have one that is much more comfortable. You are correct in that we do not allow dogs, and that has been our policy for the last 12 years.

Map

This is a nature-lovers paradise! So many trails to explore on state forest land; mountain biking opportunities on back roads; running, swimming, etc. Grocery shopping abut 9 miles away. Good restaurants in Lewiston and Atlanta; Golfing at Garland is about a 25 minute drive. All the fabulous golf courses around Gaylord are an easy drive from the house.

Notes:
If you are looking for a place to just kick back and relax, our house on Avery Lake is for you! My wife and I absolutely love being there and I think you will too. It is also a great place to use as a base for exploring the area, as there are numerous trout streams, rivers to kayak, trails to walk and bike on, other lakes to explore/fish, in the area. I love to fly fish on Avery Lake with poppers - both smallmouth and largemouth bass love 'em. Great to canoe or kayak on the Au Sable River too, just a 35 minute drive south from Avery Lake. We also enjoy bicycling around the lake, especially because so much of it is surrounded by state forest land. Fall has some of the greatest weather, and starting about mid-September, the foliage starts to gradually change, exploding into full color during October. I can't fail to mention what a delight it is to swim in water that is about the highest quality lake water you will find in Michigan.
