Hemlock Hideaway

Hemlock Hideaway - rustic and cozy, beautifully decorated. Water on both sides of this unique cottage, kayaking down the river and swimming in the lake - all things to do at Hemlock Hideaway.  Located on 1.6 acres overlooking the Chain of Lake River, and adjacent to 300 ft on Ostrander Lake, so plenty to do without ever leaving the property! Hemlock Hideaway is located within the Hiawatha National Forest, close to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and Munising, MI. This 1,000 (approx) square foot cottage has 2 bedrooms each with a double size bed.  One bedroom is located on the main floor and the other bedroom is in the secluded loft.  We can sleep 6 in the cottage and if you have a large family there is a vacant lot overlooking the lake.  If you have more than 6 guests,  you can set up a couple of tents.  Please ask for details and additional fees.

The living room is comfy with couch and oversized chair, Tv with Netflix, dvd player, gas fireplace, board games and books for more fun.  The kitchen is fully stocked except for running water.  Outside on the deck overlooking the river is a dish washing station with running water and outdoor shower on the side, with hot and cold water.  Just a short walk behind the cottage is your bathroom, or as us Yoopers like to refer to it... the outhouse!

Included with the cottage is a fishing boat and 2 kayaks.  Both the river and the lake have a dock for your convenience.

This property is on the rustic side, yet most of the conveniences of home and has access to 5 lakes via the Chain of Lakes River and takes 3 to 4 hours to navigate through.  The lake adjacent to the property is private and has 300 ft of frontage, excellent for swimming and fishing.  The beach gets sun from noon to sunset for awesome family fun!
