Unplug at "Mon Rav" on Hamlin. Lakefront, boathouse, and pickleball court!

Located in: Free Soil
180 ft of frontage on Hamlin at "The Narrows". Rustic charm from the 1920's amplified with few conveniences. A sun porch for keeping an eye on the lake and a sleeping porch for resting up. The great room for family time and a small kitchen to get fancy in.

The cottage is very close to the Nordhouse Dunes trailhead and on the quiet north side of Hamlin Lake. Close to both Ludington State Park, and Lake Michigan beaches. It's easy to unplug and get lost in the beautiful surroundings in any season!

THE SPACE
Nurnberg has 4 Cozy beds, and 8 cots or just use the hammocks! 180 feet of Hamlin Lake frontage out the front and State and National land out the back. We've got trails, a fire pit, tether ball, a pickle ball court, basketball, a dock and some boats. Enjoy beautiful sun rise and sun sets from the front porch and dark sky at night to by fire.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
A mile to Nordhouse dunes by bike. Take a hike. A ten minute boat ride to Ludington State Park, beach it. Get your paddle out and kick some pickleball butt. State and National land out your back door, go explore! Fishing year round, prime hunting opportunities all around. Check out the Au Sable In Restaurant 15 min away, get their famous fish fry. It's 30 min drive to Manistee, get ice cream and walk the canal. It's a 40 min drive to Ludington, get a brew! Check out Orchard Market and get some super fresh produce. Old McDonalds farm finds is a great antique spot where you can find that special thingymajig. Check out the 25 cent Sat matinees at the Vogue Theater in Manistee with the kids. Enjoy this out of the way destination, it's a quiet spot being on the North side of the lake. Unplug.

GETTING AROUND
You'll find the cottage on the North Side of Hamlin Lake. Access is via a 6 mile wide gravel road, and then 1 mile of a more narrow gravel road. This puts you about 25 min from Manistee, and 40 min from Ludington by car. By boat you'll find Ludington State Park a quick 10 min away.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
"Mon Rave" is the name of the large cottage built last fall by Mr. and Mrs Otto Nurnberg and in which they lived through the winter and still have as their abiding place. The name means "My Dream" and was given to this home in the woods because it was the materialization of the dream cherished since girlhood by Mrs. Nurnberg..." As published by the Hamlin Resort News - Circa 1920 A bit about the cottage.

It is the original Nurnberg cottage from the early 1900s. If you are familiar with the Nordhouse dunes area you’ll recall the road that leads you to the trailhead is named Nurnberg. You’ve probably guessed by now that the road was named after the Nurnbergs, this cottage was theirs. It was one of the first cottages on the Northside of the lake. They built it before the road existed by ferrying materials across the lake by boat in the summer and sled in the winter. The Nurnbergs used it as a destination to vacation while in Mi. from Milwaukee and would travel over Lake Mi. using the SS Badger. We know this from many published newsletters where their events were written about. They loved to explore, fish and hunt duck and goose. This was a place to entertain with friends and family. So when you vacation here, think of the past, slow down enough to appreciate the history.

The cottage itself has NOT been updated with all the modern luxuries. It has however been "restored" and we’ve added a few conveniences to amplify the experience. You won’t find a TV, you will find a HiFi with a decent record collection. You won’t find high speed internet, but you will find 2mb service, just enough for email and some streaming music. You get the idea, unplug and enjoy the area and each other.
