Unique Features

The Gathering Place enjoys 200 feet of sandy beachfront on Mullett Lake. The grassy lawn slopes gently to meet the water, and the lake is shallow and clear, perfect for wading for quite a ways. The property is private and shaded near the house, with a screened-in gazebo, a 3,000-square-foot sun deck, provided deck furniture, an outdoor grill and a fire pit.

A private dock extends out over the water with a light-duty boat lift and four mooring buoys. The rental also provides two kayaks and a collection of sand toys for children.

Things To Do

While The Gathering Place on Mullet Lake is so large and luxurious that guests may never want to step foot off the property, the home is located near a number of outdoor adventure opportunities and other touristing destinations. Visitors can fish, swim, sun bathe and play games on the lawn, but they can also venture out on area nature trails for hiking, biking and cross-country skiing.

There are courses available nearby for golfing and resorts for downhill skiing. During the warmer months, guests to this luxury cabin may want to explore the larger area of Mullett Lake by engaging in some of the more unique water-based entertainments offered there, such as jet-ski rentals, parasailing, wind-surfing, snorkeling and scuba lessons.

Mullett Lake Estate There really aren't enough adjectives to fully express what an amazing place the Mullett Lake Estate is. This is a fabulous compound for a very large family vacation or reunion. We numbered near 20 for most of our 10-day stay and I felt we could have accommodated many more. The owners have thought of everything and it does not feel like a rental property. You truly feel you are being entertained privately. The home is perfectly equipped with every possible amenity to keep folks happy rain or shine. We cooked great meals and found everything we needed in the spacious kitchen. Bedrooms and baths were plentiful and in great condition. The beautiful great room overlooking Mullett Lake provided ample space for conversation in early morning and late night. The theater is a huge bonus!! Game room provided for lots of ping pong and air hockey competitions. The office was great as a place to get away to for those in the group that had business to keep up with. As lovely as the interior is it pales in comparison to the beautiful outdoor areas and lakefront. The dock area is amazing. (If I had a suggestion for improvement it would be use of a boat slip at the dock. We had to moor our pontoon away from the dock. With such a spacious dock area it would have been nice to dock our pontoon for easy access.) There is a covered porch that provides shade and wonderful outdoor furnishings so that all can be comfortable. Beautiful grassy areas were wonderful for the small children to run around on and our 5 little ones thoroughly enjoyed it! I highly recommend this rental and the caretakers were very enjoyable and accommodating, a pleasure to work with. Madelon, April 2018 Stay
