Northern Michigan Vacation Cottage on Mullett Lake

 This delightful, rustic northern Michigan, two-bedroom chalet with an expansive deck, nestled on a wooded hillside overlooks Mullett Lake. Share your Up North visit with the squirrels and chipmunks in the rustic cottage setting on a one-mile private horseshoe road on Parrott's Pointe near Indian River, MI.
The weather is amazing: cool evenings by the campfire and warm days to fish or swim in the lake. Fireworks set for the 4th of July Weekend; historical reenactments at the Fort in Mackinaw City and at the Fort on Mackinac Island; the Pioneer Village reminding us of how it was done then; and great food, wine, craft beer in Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Charlevoix. Make your reservation for the week or a weekend.

About the area...

Northern Michigan's Inland Waterway is a unique adventure sure to please any boating enthusiast. Whether you're looking for a leisurely excursion filled with wildlife and scenic beauty, or a more active journey with water skiing, tubing, and swimming, the Inland Waterway is just right for you.

Along the 38 mile route, you'll find an abundance of fish and wildlife. Over seventeen species of fish inhabit the waterway from trout to pike, bass, perch and walleye. Deer, raccoon, swans and bald eagles also call the waterway home. There is shopping and dining within walking distance of the rivers in Indian River and Alanson. There are several full service marinas and a few lodging accommodations along the way.

Camping is also available along the route whether in private campgrounds or in Aloha State Park on Mullett Lake or Burt Lake State Part in Indian River. The waterway begins at the mouth of Lake Huron. A working lock raises/lowers you boat 20' to the level of the Cheboygan River then winds its way into Mullett Lake. From there the water flows into the Indian River, into Burt Lake, and continues through Crooked River where another working lock in Alanson raises/lowers you to the next level before coming to an end Crooked and Pickeral Lakes. Boats can be moored or rented 1 mile away at The Landings Marina.
