Inside video monitoring CAN be disabled upon arrival. Outside video monitoring CAN NOT be disabled. SLEEPS: 6, Max 8 (with 2 couches) BEDROOMS: 1 King open master loft suite with incredible view of Lake Michigan. 1 main level BR with queen bed & a twin bunk bed. BATHROOMS: 2 Full (1 up, 1 down) *LAKEFRONT Approximately 400 ft. private sandy beach on Lake Michigan *10 PRIVATE Wooded Acres Spend a few peaceful days at North Shore Retreat and you'll understand why we say, “Inspiration Lives Here.” Whether you're writing, painting, birdwatching, spending time with family, or just getting away from it all, we're confident you'll find yourself refreshed and inspired by the natural beauty of the northern shore of Lake Michigan and the comfortable surroundings of this home located on the waterfront in the south central Upper Peninsula region. North Shore Retreat offers guests a main floor bedroom with 1 queen size bed & 1 twin size bunk bed and a large upper level open master loft with a comfortable king size bed, full bath, and plenty of closet space. Enjoy stunning views of the waterfront right from the bed and fall asleep gazing at the stars through the two overhead skylights. The fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room offer fabulous views beyond the slightly sloped yard to the vast Lake Michigan waters. You'll feel like you're at the ocean – but without the sharks! Watch the ships far out on the horizon, or watch the birds and wildlife right up close in the yard. Brew your morning coffee in our drip coffeemaker, or visit one of the excellent coffee shops in downtown Manistique. The sandy shoreline and beach change from day to day, so if you stay a few days, you're sure to experience the many changing moods of the lake. Depending on water levels and changing weather conditions, the beach can be transformed from a short sandy sliver to a wide “ocean-like” beach. The lake can be a tempest of crashing waves or a peaceful sheet of glassy calm. Each day will surprise you with a beautiful gift from nature's bounty, and it really is a new experience every day. A small stream runs into the lake just to the west of the cabin and provides a great place to explore. Get creative and pick up a few small rocks to paint at North Shore Retreat's 'art corner'. Stay warm and toasty in the wintertime with gas heat and the option for a fire in the wood burning stone fireplace. In the warmer months enjoy the wonderful breezes coming in off the lake. There is no Air Conditioning at North Shore Retreat at this time, but open windows, fans, and the cooling lake breezes typically keep the home within a very comfortable temperature range. A propane grill will get your small family fired up for some great meals. If you bring your well behaved four-legged friend, there is a fenced in area behind the garage. North Shore Retreat provides lots of games for you to enjoy, and a fully equipped laundry room if you need to wash clothes. Cell phone service at the cottage is spotty and will vary based on your carrier. We provide a landline for your use, and wi-fi is available for smartphone data and wi-fi calling functions. (Or you can take advantage of the opportunity to 'disconnect' for awhile!) There are many groomed snowmobile trails in the Manistique area - along the Manistique River and through scenic forests. There are approximately 2,000 miles of groomed trails winding through the U.P. If you enjoy hiking, you're welcome to explore our 10 acres, or head out to some of the best hiking trails in the state at nearby Indian Lake State Park, Fox River Pathway, and Ashford Lake Pathway, to name just a few. The Kewadin Casino is close by and will pick you up at the cabin and return your group (of at least 4) as well. Unique day trips are popular with all of our guests. Enjoy a visit to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Mackinac Island, and many other incredible places in the U.P. There are plenty of opportunities to canoe, kayak, fish, bike, and explore a variety of other nearby recreational opportunities in the U.P. Security Cameras: Due to the secluded nature of North Shore Retreat, we use “smart cameras” to monitor the property entrances, temperatures, etc. when the property is unoccupied. The two outdoor security cams must be left on at all times. We understand that guests may be uncomfortable with the indoor camera being active during their stay, so that camera is set up on a separate module and can be disabled by unplugging the control module from the wall while you are here. Sleeping arrangements: *Linens are provided* Bedroom #1 (upstairs in an open loft): King size bed. Bedroom #2 (main floor, adjacent to the kitchen): 1 queen size & 1 tMore
