A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the spring, summer and fall!  

Listen to the call of the loons from a modern, three bedroom, two bath A-frame house located on the shores of serene, 450 acre Avery Lake, between Gaylord, and Alpena, Michigan.  A quiet place to appreciate nature, and just relax. Area wildlife includes deer, elk, black bear, bald eagles, and more.  Enjoy excellent fishing for smallmouth bass, pike, walleye and pan fish.  

Much of the lake is surrounded by Mackinaw State Forest, which provides miles of trails for mountain biking and hiking.  Great golfing in the area as well.  

The house is located in a very wooded setting, on a small island with a driveable causeway and bridge.  There are three large bedrooms, each having access to outside decks. Also, there is a large deck off the living room with great views of the lake and sunsets. The front of the house has large windows, affording a panoramic view of the lake and surrounding hills from the living room and kitchen areas.  The interior of the house is paneled in rustic knotty pine complimented by a cathedral ceiling.  We provide kayaks, a stand-up paddle board, a canoe, and a row boat for guests to use.  

We want you to have a great experience here, and we will provide you with any information about the area that we are able to.  

Maximum of four guests during any stay, please, and we do ask that guests bring their own sheets and towels.  We have a rental agreement that we would send to you, and the various sizes of the beds are indicated on it.  

During the summer months, (about from June 15 to Labor Day) we rent only by the week, and our rental weeks run from Sunday to the following Saturday.  We do rent for shorter periods in the Spring and Fall, with a minimum of two nights.
