Unique Features

Spend long summer days on your 30ft. private dock. Fish or jump in and swim by the dock or along the rocky shoreline. Rowboat is included - ask us about the pontoon boat (you'll likely be able to use the basic pontoon boat we have).

ATV's are allowed on property and you can hit the Newberry trail right from your cottage. We allow snowmobiles and you can ride from the house to the trails. Park them in our garage too.

We supply lots of extras too: Propane for the grill is provided. We love dogs and they love the water and places to explore. We just ask that you clean up and vacuum. Laundry detergent is provided. Firewood is provided.

Things To Do

Hang out at our ranch-style home, play on the lake all day and watch gorgeous sunsets. If you forgot something, pick it up at the convenience store a few hundred feet away.

East Lake is an all-sports lake. Bring your boat and dock it in front of the Stone House, or ask us about boat rentals. There is a rustic boat launch 100 yards from the property. The swimming experience calls for water shoes if you don’t like a slightly murky bottom. East Lake has good perch and bluegill fishing!

All these popular destinations are wiithin 1.5 hours! Pictured Rocks; Marquette; Oswald’s Bear Ranch; Soo Locks; Tahquamenon Falls State Park; Mackinac Bridge; Newberry (movie theater, grocery stores, ice cream, etc.); Toonerville Trolley (Tahquamenon Falls Excursion)

Things to remember: Most phones have no service here. There is a land-line. Bring your fishing gear. Bring extra beach towels.

Excellent for Day Trips to All the Best Sites the UP has to Offer. Doug & Sarah
The house is in an amazing location. Perfect for enjoying the outdoors and some privacy to have a fire by the lake. The pontoon boat was really enjoyable we watched otters swimming at night from the boat. There is a back deck to enjoy your morning coffee. One morning while sitting out there we spotted bald eagles flying right above our dock! The house fit all 7 of us comfortably and the beds were very comfy. Everything was clean and arranged. It is a little rough in a few spots but just.looked like a work in progress. We all enjoyed being there thoroughly and look forward to returning. Misty
Stone cottage was a great place to stay and the location was beautiful. Plenty of room in the house for a big group. Did a lot of sightseeing and also enjoyed some fishing and cruising on the lake. A few improvements could be made, but overall, we enjoyed our time and were happy that we could bring our doggie with us! Chris
From the moment we crossed the threshold of this beautiful cottage, a sense of serenity flooded over me. We’d been captivated and sidetracked by exploring along our way to the cottage, and so although our arrival happened late into the night, the caretaker had seen to it that there were lights on and gentle breezes coming through the open windows to greet us. The present owners have filled the home with decor that is a mixture of affirmations and homage to "The Mitten", and I hope they will continue to develop these themes as they endeavor to add their own thoughtful touches to this home. Everything from the sign boards to the bath mats is intentional and well placed - classic Mitten signage reminded of just how close we were to all the best that the Upper Penninsula has to offer. Doug & Sarah
Our family of four plus our dog had an enjoyable stay at Stone House! It’s a great central location for sight seeing. We enjoyed the lake view and spacious yard. We arrived to a clean house that had everything we could possibly need for a relaxing Upper Peninsula vacation! Kristin
We had a great time at Stone House. It was clean and had all of the necessary items that made it feel like a home-away-from-home. The fishing was great and the location made it easy to head to local attractions such as Tahquamenon Falls, Oswald's Bear Ranch, and Crisp Point Lighthouse. I would highly recommend this spot and will likely be back on our next trip up North! Mary
