About the property

Impeccably Furnished 3BR 2BA Home on Picturesque Little Wolf Lake

Briar Cliff… The Best of Both Worlds – Summer fun on Little Wolf Lake while staying in comfort and style. Little Wolf Lake is a picturesque northern 90 acre lake rich with wildlife and great fishing. FOR PARENTS... BEING A PRIVATE LAKE, MEANS THERE ARE NOT A LOT OF HIGH SPEED BOATING. MANY DAYS, YOU WILL BE THE ONLY ONE ON THE LAKE AND CAN LEISURELY PADDLE YOUR WAY AROUND. THE LAKE IS SPRING-FED AND ON SUNNY DAYS THE WATER IS CRYSTAL CLEAR AND YOU CAN SEE THE FISH SWIMMING UNDER YOU. Learn how to balance on a stand up paddle board and enjoy kayaking (2 adult & 2 kid kayaks are included). Tour the lake on the walk-around four-person pontoon paddle boat which is also great for fishing. Across the lake is a sand bar which offers a sandy beach and swimming area. The house provides an open floor plan and large deck offering breathtaking views of Little Wolf Lake. My home also has a sun platform next to the water and a sandy sun bathing beach. For those lazy nights, enjoy watching your favorite movie on a 60” HD TV with surround sound. Home features new master bedroom suite and bath with air tub and walk in shower.

And… I know that sometimes work must be done, so a wireless internet connection is available.

Amenities: Home is fully furnished featuring walk in master bathroom shower with air tub, 400+ linens, gourmet kitchen accessories, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, BBQ grill, 50'" and 60" HD TV,'s, DVD/VCR, washer & dryer. And, fire pit for your evening entertainment.

About Patricia Striegel

I like to renovate homes and love the creative aspect of working with tools. I installed all the wainscotting in both bathrooms and bought a wet saw to install the new bathroom slate and marble floors. It took me 4 months to complete all the slate and marble work on the new master bathroom...

I also like to garden and if you like flowers - I have an entire summer of blooming flowers.

Patricia Striegel purchased this house in 2004

Why Patricia Striegel chose Northern Michigan

I bought my home 13 years ago because it was the perfect configuration - master bedroom/bath on one side and 2 guest rooms/bath on the other. The kitchen and family room is open concept and the perfect place to cook, have a cocktail, and socialize.

What makes this house unique

Little Wolf Lake is a private lake and you do not get the noise or speeding boats. It is the perfect lake for the intimate water experience of paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming. Also, the lake is spring fed and on sunny days - it is crystal clear.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, For those considering renting next year, you will be able to enjoy a new master bedroom and bathroom. The master bedroom is double the original size and features french doors so you can lay in bed and look out at the lake. Also, a new master bath suite will feature an airtub and walk in shower. The guest bathroom has also been updated with new marble and granite details.

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Six seniors spent 3 lovely nights at Briar Cliff this fall. The house is beautifully appointed with fine linens and a complete gourmet kitchen. Just like home. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable.

The lake view is beautiful, as is the property. We hated to leave. The location is so nice; quiet and private but minutes away from good, basic stores in Lewiston. The burgers at Talley's are as good as we remembered them to be.

Our homeowner was a joy to work with, and she maintains a most desireable home. We hope to return again some Autumn in the future. I highly recommend this getaway destination.

thanks

Outstanding week

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation from the booking to the last moments was fantastic. The Owner, Pat, has gone beyond expectations to make the home and its surroundings a place to create amazing memories and provide a tastefully decorated well appointed place to stay. The Master Suite rivals anything we've stayed in anywhere. The furnishings are comfortable and welcoming throughout the home. The view from the home of the surrounding area is beautiful and the home has many large windows allowing a fantastic view. We had lunches and dinners on the rear deck. There is a large harvest table where we could fit our Family around to enjoy meals together. Little Wolf Lake is beautiful and the water is very clean and clear. You can "see" through the water to a good depth. We enjoyed the paddle wheel pontoon boat that comes with the home and utilized it for touring the quiet waters of Little Wolf Lake and as a platform to fish from. I did catch a 3-4 lb large mouth bass along with several smaller bass. There is a bald eagle that flew overhead several times while we were there and the surrounding area has more of them that we saw while out and about. There are several larger lakes surrounding Little Wolf. We rented a pontoon boat on East Twin lake and spent an entire day with our Family cruising and fishing. The Lewiston Lodge has a boat dock on East Twin that made a fantastic stop for lunch from the water that we loved. I think what summarizes this destination for us is that we loved being here so much that all said we will come back here. This is 5 huge stars!!

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant week in a beautiful home. All necessities were there as well as many luxuries! Everyone had room to spread out which was very nice. Our children ages 1-4 swam without any issues right on the beach at the property.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with a family of 4 adults and 3 kids. Used the paddle boards and kayaks many times. That kept us busy during the days. Good fishing off of the paddle boat. Caught many pike and bass. The house was wonderful, has everything you need. Ate dinner every day out on the deck. The view was beautiful.

Gorgeous and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time staying here! The lake was quiet and the assortment of watercraft was phenomenal. Our kids loved zipping about in the kid-sized kayaks, and that paddleboat was unlike any I've ever seen--so easy to use, comfortable and perfect for fishing trips. We rarely saw a boat with a motor and when we did they were very respectful with their speed. The house is extremely comfortable and clean, and the new bath in the elegantly remodeled bathroom (the owner did much of the work herself, and she's a real craftswoman) was a huge plus! All in all the only upgrade we'd love is a king-sized bed in the master bedroom. Otherwise I wouldn't change a thing! You can't go wrong vacationing here.
