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.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
NO Dock-- There is NOT a private dock for the Indian Lake Lodge. At times, we may be able to offer you dock space at another cabin (300 feet from the Lodge), yet this is never guaranteed. The beach area is small, and it is just used for swimming. It is not for docking boats. The association does not allow boats to be pulled up and left all night. They must be taken to the Indian Lake State Park and trailered back and forth each night.
Fire Pit- YES may have to bring own wood or have it delivered (906) 341-5698
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.
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.

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.
