About the property

3 (or 2) Bedrooms, Sleeps 8 to 10 with pull out couch, 1 and 1/2 bathrooms,



BEDROOMS: 3 bedrooms (or you can reduce it to 2, if you open the accordion divider wall and create a bunk-room)

BATHROOMS: 2 (1 full bath- bathtub/shower combination) + 1 (bathroom with a toilet and sink= 1/2 bath)




This lodge is roomy and delightful! Everything you need is here-Cable TV, WiFi, Washer & Dryer and more! This cabin is located in Manistique, Michigan which lies along the south shore of Indian Lake. Indian Lake is 8400 acre spring fed lake. The Lodge is 100 feet from the shoreline, behind cabins #5 & #6, with a great view and easy access to Indian Lake. Indian Lake is the fourth largest inland lake in the Upper Peninsula with an area of 8,400 acres. It is 5 miles long and 3 miles wide. Indian Lake has a maximum depth of 18 feet with about 90 percent of the lake less than 15 feet deep. Game fish include perch, walleye, northern pike, muskellunge, rock bass, small mouth bass, bluegill, sturgeon and brown trout.

This vacation spot is great for swimming, boating, water sports, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, biking and sight seeing. Also, a cozy spot during hunting season. Easy access to launching your boat is best at the state park nearby (1/2 mile from the Lodge and a $4.50 per vehicle if you do not have a State sticker in your window.) We do recommend pulling your boat nightly due to the high winds.

*Wheelchair Accessibility: In 2013, we have added a brand new ramp/deck which allows for wheelchair accessibility. The entryway door is 32". Right from your van door to the cottage, the cottage is accessible. Plus, both toilets are ADA height toilets. Plus, we have a safety grab bar, mounted on the end wall, to assist in getting in and out of the bathtub/shower.

*TV/standard DVD player: There is a 27" TV with cable and a standard DVD (not Blu-Ray) player for your use in the living room at the Lodge. Plus, there is an additional TV with cable in each of the bedrooms.

Fire Pit- YES may have to bring own wood or have it delivered (906) 341-5698


Bedroom 1 (front): 2 twin beds

Bedroom 2 (middle): full + twin bunks (heavy duty) DIVIDER BETWEEN BEDROOMS (This convenient divider can be moved back and forth as you wish during your stay. Please keep in mind that this divider is thin. It does not provide auditory privacy. It is ideal for the privacy desired for changing clothes.)

Big Springs "Kich-iti-kipi": Michigan's largest freshwater spring. Two hundred feet across, and 40-feet deep. Over 10,000 gallons a minute gush from fissures in the underlying limestone at a constant 45 degree Fahrenheit. By means of a self-operated observation raft, visitors are guided to vantage points overlooking fascinating underwater features and fantasies. Ancient tree trunks, lime-encrusted branches and fat trout appear suspended in nothingness as they slip through crystal waters far below. Clouds of sand kept in constant motion by gushing waters create ever-changing shapes and forms, a challenge to the imagination of young and old alike.

Indian Lake Golf Course: A very popular, 18-hole golf course along Indian Lake. Just 5 miles from the Cabin.

The Kewadin Casino: It is approximately 10 minutes (7 miles) from the Lodge. If you make reservations, they will pick you up at the cabin and return your group as well.

Historic Manistique Water Tower: The Old Water Tower is one of the many historic sites in Schoolcraft County. Built in 1923 and constructed in the "Roman revival" style, it is also listed in the national register. The renovated building will provide space for arts related public events and public rest room facilities while preserving one of Manistique's unique and historic buildings.

Fayette State Park & Historic Town site: Fayette was once one of the Upper Peninsula's most productive iron-smelting operations. Located on the Garden Peninsula at Snail Shell Harbor. When the charcoal iron market began to decline, the Jackson Iron Company closed its Fayette smelting operation in 1891. It is now a completely restored village including 22 historic buildings, museum exhibits and the visitor center, which can be toured May through October. The historic site is located in Fayette State Park.

Great space, everything you need

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere! The place is much bigger than we imagined, even from the pictures. Mattresses are not very comfortable and could use some updated blankets. The kitchen had everything we needed. Neighbors were friendly. Beach was not great, but met our needs with a toddler who didn't really want to swim anyway. The cabin could have used a vacuuming since there was dog/cat hair covering the carpet, but that is the only real complaint. It was a great place and a really good price for the amount of space!

Owner's Response: Our goal is for our guests to have a top notch experience. We realized we should have removed the older blankets when we added new blankets at the beginning of the season. Also, we have since replaced the vacuum. My apologies. We should have realized an update was needed before your stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the space. We try hard to be conscious of what you may need during your stay at the cabin, especially in the kitchen. We hope to have you back again!

Indian Lake Lodge Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Indian Lake property was beautiful. There was a small swing set that the kids enjoyed playing on and a small beach for them to swim at. The lodge was very comfortable, beautiful wood work inside, clean and very large as needed for our family. Kara from UP Michigan Rentals was amazing helping us arrange our stay and they were flexible with our arrival n departure time so our family could salmon fish. We are definitely reserving the same cabin for next year. Our family would highly recommend this property to our friends or anyone else who is looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay.

Thanks for having us
