Located on the Upper Manistee River seven miles west of Grayling, MI
and 1 mile south of M-72, the house sits on a bluff about 50' back
from and overlooking the river. There is a stairway down to a 4'X 8'
dock which gives access to the water for such things as swimming,
canoeing, kayaking, wading, tubing, fly fishing or wildlife viewing.
The river is approximately 4' deep in front of the dock making it
perfect for an afternoon dip in the heat of the summer sun. There
are wooden steps going into the river making easy access for
youngsters and/or fly fisherman to reach shallower waters. At the
top of the bluff is a hammock which overlooks the river and seems to
beckon one to lay down and rest under the swaying pine trees. If you
are looking for a Retreat, this is the place. At the end of the
street there is a private undeveloped park. The park offers solitude
and another access point to the river. Sometimes wildlife, including
deer, can be found drinking from the river at daybreak or early
evening. The park area also makes a great place to lean against a
tree and read a book or just relax and watch the trout rise during a
hatch. The Upper Manistee River has been classified as a Natural
River. This means that future development will have to meet certain
standards - standards that will help to maintain the quality of the
river and the river environment. The Natural Rivers Act along with
the Upper Manistee River Association will be working together to
make sure that there is a healthy trout population too. The house
sits on a stretch of the Manistee River that is well known for it's
Brook and Brown trout population. This section of the river is for
fly fishing only and is open all year round. The Catch and Eat
season runs from the last Saturday in April thru September 30. The
rest of the year is Catch and Release ONLY.



The house has a one-car attached garage with an automatic opener.
Although there is only a single car width driveway, it is long
enough to accommadate a truck/car and trailer. We park our Jeep
Liberty and 19' I/O Bowrider in the driveway with ease. Also, there
is room to park extra cars on the street during the summer months.
During the winter cars on the street might hinder the snowplow and
is not advised. Using the garage and driveway, 3 cars could be
parked. Inside the garage you will find a small number of hand tools
should the need arise. Also, there is a gas grill for your use as
well as several outdoor tables and chairs. For the
fisherman/fisherwoman there is a rack for holding your flyrods and
another rack to hang your waders and boots upside down to dry.
You'll be ready at the first sign of a hatch!

Approximately 7 mi. from town, the house is accessible year round
and is located on a county plowed blacktop road. Located in a quiet
residential neighborhood, you have close by neighbors giving you a
feeling of security. However, there is abundant wildlife and
solitude for that "up north" feeling. The home is located 3 miles
from the State Park on Lake Margreth. The State Park offers a Day
area with a sandy shallow beach/swim area which is perfect for
children and adults alike. There is also a boat launch and the
Walleye fishing as well as tubing/ water skiing on the lake is
great. There is a trailhead approx. 3-4 miles from the house which
gives access to over 1000 miles of trails designated for
Snowmobile/Quad use. Hanson Hills Ski area is only 5 miles from the
house and also has X-country ski trails that double as mountain bike
trails in the summer.
