This beautiful lakefront cabin was built in 2003 and is located in the heart of the Hiawatha National Forest (10 miles South of M28). It is conveniently located next to Pete's Recreation Area and Bruno's Run for great mountain biking/hiking trail access. The World Famous Pictured Rocks National Lake shore is only 13 miles from the cabin. Fish, canoe or kayak the nearby lakes and the Indian River or spend a day or two admiring the incredible waterfalls in the Munising area. Bike the cliffs of the Grand Island National Recreation Area or have a relaxing day floating and swimming in the sandy bottomed Town Lake. There is a deck off the cabin with a new gas grill ready for use as well as a deck at the lake shore with a canoe that is provided. Paddle across Town Lake to the general store for yummy ice cream cones and rentals of jet skis and power boats to be used on nearby lakes (Town Lake is quiet lake). The cabin has two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and one with two twin beds. Additional sleeping is available in the lower level where there is a bunk bed and a full-size futon. High speed internet and local phone service are available. Full of beautiful views and amazing recreational activities, you will love your stay at the Town Lake Lodge!
There is a 12 X 14 deck right at the edge of the lake. The rest of the lakeshore is natural. The entire lake is hard sand bottom that gets covered in pine needles and leaves each fall. The water quality is excellent which makes for great swimming and snorkeling. We keep the bottom of the lake in front of the deck raked free of most leaves so it is nice and sandy. The lake in front of the deck gets deep pretty quickly, so small kids should be monitored closely. The first 10 feet from shore goes from 0ft to 2ft, the next 10 feet from shore goes from 2ft to 5 or 6ft. After that it goes to 12 feet pretty quickly. Swimming, float tubes, snorkeling and relaxing is great. As always, small kids who are without life jackets should be watched closely. If you want a more traditional shallow water beach with a big grassy lawn, it is less than a mile away at the Pete's Lake Day Use Area.
Fans: There are two box fans and a ceiling fan.
Firepit: There is a fire-pit with 6 chairs for you to gather around the fire.
Lakeshore: There is a 12x14 deck right at the edge of the lake. The rest of the shore is natural. Town Lake is a quiet lake.
Landline (telephone): Yes, we do have landline for you to use.
Pets: Sorry, due to allergies, we can not allow pets at the Town Lake Lodge.
Swimming: Not a traditional swimming beach. The entire lake is hard sandy bottom. You can swim here-but the lake does get deep pretty quickly, so small kids should be monitored closely. The first 10 feet from shore goes from 0 ft to 2 ft. the next 10 ft from shore goes from 2 ft. to 5-6 ft. then drops to 12 ft. pretty quickly. There is a more traditional shallow water beach less than 1 mile away at Pete's Lake Day Use Area.
TV: Direct TV, and DVD player connected to TV
Wi-fi: Yes, there is wi-fi here! Also, a landline phone for your use. It's a great feature with the unreliable cell service in the Upper Peninsula.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Very clean & comfortable. A true home away from home.
The cabin situated in the woods provides a true sanctuary from the world and is a welcoming site after long days of hiking the various trails at Pictured Rocks. Watching the sun set from the dock was a daily ritual and on a clear night the stars were incredible. On the one rainy day it was comforting to just hang out and read, watch the rain and drink hot tea. Having the Hiawatha National Forest trail at Bruno's Run literally a 3 min drive was great when the rain stopped & we wanted a short hike & fresh air.
The cabin is extremely clean & well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Joan from the management company was a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely be back. Thank you to the owners for availing this special place for us to enjoy!
We are thrilled you has such a great time at the Cabin. We try to stock it to the best of our ability :) We are happy you appreciated that. We can't wait to host you again next year! Be sure to call to make reservations sooner than later! Thank you for choosing Freshwater Vacation Rentals.
Exactly as the listing shows
We really enjoyed our stay! House is comfortable and the settling is great!
Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for the positive feedback. For your next vacation, think about renting another one of our 54 waterfront properties across Michigan!
Creepy deer heads
We loved the view of the lake, but not the dead deer heads on the walls. These are not visible in the pictures bc they are in the apex of the living room. One is very large and sits almost halfway into the room. All was very clean except downstairs area which has a strong moldy odor.
Oh No! Not the deer heads! Our hunters LOVE them. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and hope you consider booking with Freshwater Vacation rentals in the near future. I have documented the weird odor from the basement and we are looking into it. We have 54 other waterfront properties to choose from, sans deer heads!
Great vacation rental in Munising Mi
