Aug 26

Listen to the call of the loons from a modern, 3 bedroom, 2 bath A-frame house located on the shores of serene, 415 acre Avery Lake near Lewiston, MI. 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, walleye, pike and panfish.
Much of the lake is surrounded by Mackinaw State Forest, which provides miles of trails for snowmobiling, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, hiking and thousands of acres for hunting. About a half hour drive to the fabulous Garland Resort for golfing, and Elk Ridge Golf Course is just north of Atlanta.
The house is located in a very private, wooded setting, on a small island with a drivable 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 a great view of the sunset over the lake. The front of the house facing the lake contains 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 complemented by a cathedral ceiling. We want you to have a great experience here and will be happy to answer any questions you have about the area.We have kayaks, a stand-up paddle board, a canoe, and a row boat for guests to use. Maximum of four guests during any stay, please, and we have had a long-standing policy of no pets, as some of our regular and repeating guests have allergies. Rate is $200 / per night for stays of four or more nights. For stays of two or three nights, rate is $225/night. During the summer months (mid-June to mid-September) we rent only by the week and weeks run from Sundays to following Saturday. Rate is $1200 for the week. We do rent for shorter periods in spring and fall. We do require that guests sign and return to us a rental agreement and we can email you the agreement. Additionally, we do require that guests bring their own sheets and towels, and the various sizes of beds are indicated on the rental agreement.

Unique Features

Avery Lake is a truly unique place. It has water that is of the absolute highest quality. The lake is fed by numerous springs that flow down from the surrounding hills. We do our best to maintain the property in a natural condition and strive to preserve the wilderness quality of the area. The house is surrounded by both deciduous and pine trees, as well as by other natural vegetation.

Large windows in the living room allow for great views of the lake, and because the house faces west,the views of the sunsets over the forested hills are stunning. Likewise, the decks off the back of the house afford views of the natural wetlands that border our property and birders will appreciate the variety of species that can be seen there, especially in the mornings.

The house itself is located just steps away from the lake shore, making lake access very easy. Although the lake has a remote feeling to it, there are grocery stores, libraries, restaurants, etc. located in both of the towns of Atlanta and Lewiston, each about 9 miles away.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for meal preparation and enjoyment. We do ask that guests bring their own sheets and towels.

Additionally, we will send you a rental agreement and more information about the area.

Things To Do

We have a nice lakeside deck very close to the house. The deck is great for swimming activities, and the bottom of the lake close to the deck is sandy and shallow. . . great for small children. Further out, the bottom becomes a little softer, but there are nice submerged logs for swimmers to stand on. Paddle around the lake in the canoe, one of the kayaks, or, if you are adventurous, try out the stand-up paddle board. Look for deer, black bear, otters, beavers, elk, mink, and other furry creatures as you move silently in the water. Also, we usually have one or two nesting pairs of loons each year that make Avery Lake their summer home. Listen to their melodious calls in the early morning and in the evenings. Also we usually have Canadian geese and several species of ducks on our lake.

Fishing at Avery Lake can be truly exceptional. The high water quality provides a great habitat for small mouth bass, which is the predominant species. But we also have respectable numbers of large mouth bass and northern pike. Occasionally, anglers hook up with walleye as well. Fly fishing can be exceptional. We have a nice hex hatch in early June, and after that, the bass are tuned into anything that floats on the surface.

Since you book directly with me (Daniel), I can give you lots of tips on what to see and do: Thanks to plentiful state forest lands, there are numerous other lakes and small trout streams in the area. 25 miles to the south is the Au Sable River which flows through the Huron National Forest, which makes for an adventurous day trip.

Like to golf? Gaylord, the Golf Mecca of the Midwest is less than an hour drive. Also close by is the Garland Resort and Tree Tops, both providing an exceptional golfing experience.

Great location to relax, unwind and disconnect. Loved hearing the loons call out on the lake. Comfortable beds and friendly renters. Kayaking and biking are very senic too! House offers many walk out doorwalls on to decks for beautiful views. linda h.
What a treasure this Cabin is. We spent 2 amazing/relaxing days at this place, and couldnt have asked for a better time. Scenery and location was exactly what i was looking for. Will definitely return.Mike J.
Very good communication with the homeowner. Spacious bedrooms, awesome views & great accommodations for the water. Erika C.
An awesome place to visit for a fun relaxing family trip. We enjoyed kayaking and canoeing around the lake. Board and card games were available and the deck is very large to play and have breakfast/dinner on. House was very clean and kitchen had all the essentials. Would definitely visit again! Hasan D.
We loved our long weekend at this home. The property is well kept, clean and spacious. The owner was very quick to respond to any questions we had. We never left the property during our stay as we had everything we needed. There was a beautiful view of the lake from the living room windows! It was a bit too chilly to swim, but we took the rowboat out for a spin. What a beautiful, crystal clear lake! Even though the wind was whipping up a bit that weekend, we still caught a few nice fish. An extra treat was discovering a nifty assortment of games and puzzles in the bedroom closet, as well as vintage books throughout the house. Great stuff for rainy day/evening fun! We'd definitely consider renting this home again! Cindy B.

About the Owner/Manager

We (Daniel and Cheryl) have been coming to Avery Lake since the late 60s. The house has been in our family for over a generation. Our own children practically grew up here in the summers. But in all these years, the lake has really changed very little. We occasionally host guests who came here as children as long ago as the 1950s! They are amazed that the area has maintained the same remote feeling and that nature still abounds here.
Cheryl and I have been fortunate enough to travel and live all over the world, but we still regard Avery Lake as a very special place. We truly get so much gratification from guests that feel the same way we do!
