Along the shoreline of Indian Lake, this old-school (1940s) cabin is an ideal get-away for the small family or couple who used to like to camp, or wants a more rustic experience.

The shoreline is rocky, so it isn't easy (though not impossible) to hop into the water directly in front of the cabin. Due to the rocks, swim shoes are suggested. Swimming directly n front of the cabin is not ideal for small children. When you are at Indian Lake Cabin #1, feel like you are a part of the water at Indian Lake. We are located in Manistique, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula. Located along Indian Lake, which is 8,400 acre Spring fed lake. Indian Lake is the fourth largest inland lake in Michigan's 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. It is rocky along the shoreline, except in a tiny, sandy area. The lake has a sandy bottom, yet you have to walk through the rocks in order to hit the sand. This area is great for swimming, hiking, golfing, biking, fishing, hunting and sight seeing. Spend the day boating, read a book on the deck under the umbrella, or enjoying the tiny sandy beach area. Then, spend the evening having a tasty barbecue and a soothing bonfire. You are literally steps (10 or so) from the lake. Gorgeous, wide open view of the water. Enjoy being outside in the fresh air! This cabin provides a kitchen with dishes, cooking utensils, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, fridge and a gas stove. Artesian well water. Feel free to enjoy time under the community pavilion with the newly paved sitting area, and sandy bottom swimming. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS Bedroom#1: Bunk Bed style: a full-size bed on bottom and a twin bed on the top (only suitable for children under 100 lbs) Bedroom#2: Bunk Bed Style: a full-size bed on bottom and a twin bed on the top (only suitable for children under 100 lbs) BATHROOM: Only 1. Has toilet, sink and shower (no tub) LOCAL ATTRACTIONS 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. 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 Townsite: 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. *Mackinac Bridge- approximately 1 hour away. *Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore- approximately 1 hour away. *Tahquamenon Falls State Park- approximately 2 hours away. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Association: This cabin is a part of the Mountain Ash Condo Association. Back in the 1980's this was known as the Mountain Ash Resort.
