Manistee Forest Retreat

Manistee Forest Retreat

The house sits on 34 acres of private woods and fields, with a stream and pond. Directly adjacent to Manistee National Forest, trails lead from the land right into the forest, perfect for hikes in Spring, Summer and Fall. Pond is stocked if you want to stay home, or the Manistee river is just ten minutes away for canoeing, kayaking and other water sports. In winter the Caberfae ski resort is only ten minutes away, and you can snowmobile right out of the driveway into the surrounding area. This house is remote, if you want the wilderness, we've got it, but you can still hop in the car and drive the kids to Cadillac for a family movie. The house itself has a beautiful open kitchen-dining-living area. One family can spread out into four bedrooms, or two families can take two bedrooms each. Two of the bedrooms are separated from the other two, for plenty of privacy. In winter you can fire up the wood stove and watch the snow fall in cozy comfort. The property is just minutes from the Manistee River, the Hodenpyl Dam and the Dam Backwaters, and an easy drive to Michigan's many blue-water and white-sand beaches. This splendid retreat offers your family or group all the beauty and opportunities of the Northern Woods, including hunting, fishing, bird-watching and hiking.
