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 Lakeshore 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 a small, quiet  40 acre lake). 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.  The cabin has two bedrooms,  both with a queen size beds. Additional sleeping is available in the lower level where there are two sets of bunk beds 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!   Bedrooms/Bathrooms Bedroom #1 - One queen bed Bedroom #2- One queen bed Basement- There are two sets of bunk beds and one futon located in the lower level for additional sleeping arrangements (Full bath added in 2017) Bathroom- Sink, toilet, shower, and plenty of space for your personal belongings.  FAQS Airport: The closest airport is at Sawyer International Airport in Marquette (MQT), 48 miles from the cottage               65 miles to Escanaba (ESC) normally has the best rates. Flying to the Upper Peninsula is rarely at a discount. Fans:  There are two box fans and a ceiling fan.  Fire pit: There is a fire-pit with 6 chairs for you to gather around the fire. Fishing: You can find a variety of pan fish in Town Lake, including sunfish and largemouth bass.  You can click here to purchase your Michigan DNR e-license Lakeshore: There is a 12 x14 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. Boat Rentals:  Check out the general store across the lake.  Ask for George. LOCAL ATTRACTIONS Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore:  Only 15 miles away on Lake Superior in Munising.More
