INDIAN LAKE SOUTH SHORE LODGE
BEDROOMS: 3 bedrooms (or you can reduce it to 2, if you open the accordian 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)
*INLAND--100 FEET FROM SHORELINE OF INDIAN LAKE
*SMALL SANDY SWIMMING BEACH
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
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.)
Bedroom 3 (back bedroom, next to 1/2 bath): 1 queen-sized bed (brand new for 2014) + Living Room queen-sized pull-out sofa, lazy boy recliner couch w recliner on both ends. All Lazy-Boy furniture in the living room.
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.

"The cabin was better than I thought it was going to be, so thanks. Nice surprise. Everything worked. Thanks again for the convenience of the weekend rental.
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!
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
