This beautiful log home is 1600 square feet and has 100 feet of
frontage on the lake. The lot is a little over an acre. There is a
fire pit and picnic table along the lake and, please feel free to
take the additional loungers and cocktail tables from the porch to
use alongside the lake. You can't imagine a more breathtaking view.
Throw some wood on your campfire and roast some marshmallows while
you are watching the night sky and listening to the waves lap up on
the shore. Don't be surprised if some of our area ducks visit you
while you're sitting by the lake. Since mother nature changes her
mind quite often in the U.P., the shoreline can be rocky or sandy
depending on her mood!. If you'd like a larger beach area for the
children to play, Sand Point Beach is just down the shoreline a bit
(2 minutes by car). As long as you're there, you can take a walk on
the board walk overlooking the Bog. The children will love seeing
all the wildlife along the walk.

Bring your bikes or rent one from Bike rentals at the Ferry Dock.
The Vista is close enough to ride your bike 1 mile to the Dairy
Queen and enjoy your all-time favorite or stop in at the Falling
Rock Cafe and Bookstore for a hand dipped ice cream and then enjoy
it in our beautiful Munising park. Don't miss Tuesdays' Music in
the Park!

Unique to the Vista is the two car attached garage. A spacious
place to park your vehicles or store the snowmobiles!

Swimming is both beautiful and refreshing in our own Lake Superior.
You can swim on the premises or take a very short drive to big,
beautiful sandy beaches!

Along the West side of the Vista, there is a pretty little creek
that runs into Lake Superior. Feel free to pick the wild
raspberries and blackberries that grow alongside the creek. There's
enough to make a pie! If you're interested in Strawberry and
Blueberry picking, we know some great spots!

The front yard at Vista is so large and spacious, there is enough
room for the kids to play baseball, kickball and tag, and at night
they can run around and catch fireflies!

We have some reading material (books and magazines) for adults and
kids, and a few games such as cards, trivial pursuit, cribbage, etc.
on hand in the event of a rainy day or for your evening family

You can rent a pontoon and/or kayak from across the Bay and putter
around Munising Bay, go take pictures of the restored light house on
Grand Island, or do a little fishing. The Vista is a great place to
start with your kayak and paddle along the shore to the Pictured
Rocks and explore the caves and other works of Mother Nature!

If you've always wanted to try big lake fishing, b ook a fishing
charter and don't let that big one get away. If you'd like to bring
your own boat for fishing and touring, there is boat access
nearby. Canoes and boats can be rented in AuTrain, just a 15
minute drive, for use on AuTrain Lake or a paddle down the AuTrain
River to Lake Superior. The Autrain River is a perfect river for
your whole family to enjoy canoeing. It's a slow moving river with
places to stop along to have a picnic. You can start at one spot
and leave your canoe at another! If you're an advanced canoer and
want more of a challenge, then the Indian River is for you. Let us
know of your interest and we can direct you.

One of the great features of the Vista besides the Grand Views,
sauna and everything else we've already mentioned, is the great
location to all the area activities! Visit the Pictured Rocks
National Lakeshore and take a walk on some of the wide variety of
hiking trails, or view the National Lakeshore on the Pictured Rocks
Boat Cruise, the Shipwreck Tour, or the Skylane Air Tour. Visit the
Interpretive Center on Washington Street (also called Sand Point
Road, next to Vista) and learn about the area's history and take the
short walk to beautiful Munising Falls, an enjoyable stroll through
a little valley. There are several area waterfalls to visit in the
area with maps available at the Visitor Center at the blinking light
in Munising. Also within walking distance of the Vista is our Alger
County Historical Society. This is located on Washington Street as
well. There you can learn about our area heritage and take a look
in the gift shop. There is a ferry to Grand Island where you can
hike or tour by bike or bus. There are several area lighthouses with
AuSable Lighthouse open for tours. These lights look especially
lovely at night when they are lit. Fishermen will enjoy fishing in
Lake Superior or the many lakes and streams of the Hiawatha National
Forest where you will find hundreds of acres of public land for
hiking, canoeing, hunting, photography, birding and ATV'ing. The
Kewadin Casino is in Christmas, just 5 miles West of the Vista. You
will also find unique gift shops and restaurants in Munising.

There is a water falls within walking distance of the Vista, and
many more just minutes away! For you golfers, Pictures Rocks Gulf
and Country Club is only 2 miles East of the Vista. Just take a
left out of the driveway and two miles're there. They
also have a wonderful restaurant with a Friday night fish fry! If
you're like us and like a quicker game of golf, try the mini putt
putt just 3 miles away!

Winter brings lots of snow to Alger County and the Vista Grand Lodge
is only 1 mile from hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails.
You can ride from the door of the Vista to get to your trail! There
are several cross-country ski trails nearby (within 1 miles of
Vista) and one with a lighted trail in Christmas. Go dog sledding or
take a walk through the woods on some showshoes. Snowmobile rentals
in Munising .

The Vista Grand Lodge will be your home away from home while on
vacation with a spectacular view of the Lake from all the main
living areas and bedrooms. The front and back porch that run the
length of the home allows you to enjoy the summer breezes or the
fall colors with family and friends. When you vacation at the Vista
Grand Lodge in our beautiful Upper Peninsula, not only do you get to
take a piece of God's Country home with get to be a Yooper
for awhile!
