Skip & Kathy's Manistee River Retreat

Skip & Kathy's Manistee River Retreat

Beautiful Chalet located on the Upper Manistee River seven miles west of Grayling and just south of M-72, the house sits on a bluff about fifty feet back from and overlooking the river. There is a stairway down to a four foot by eight foot dock which gives access to the water for such things as swimming, canoeing, kayaking, wading, tubing, fly fishing or wildlife viewing. The river is approximately three to four feet deep just in front of the dock making it perfect for an afternoon dip in the heat of the summer sun.To the right of the dock are wooden steps going into the river making easy access for youngsters and/or fly fisherman to reach shallower waters. At the end of the street there is a private undeveloped park. The picture at the right was taken from the park area looking toward the house. Sometimes wildlife, including deer, can be found drinking from the river at daybreak or early evening. The park area also makes a great place to lean against a tree and read a book or just relax and watch the trout rise during a hatch. The house sits on a stretch of the Manistee River that is well known for it's Brook and Brown trout population. It is, also, a well kept secret that a 20" Brown lives under the dock here! This section of the river is for fly fishing only and is open all year round. The Catch and Eat season runs from the last Saturday in April thru September 30. The rest of the year is Catch and Release Only.
