Beautiful Chalet on the Upper Manistee River (Pet Friendly), 2 Bed Rooms

Located in: Grayling
Located on the Upper Manistee River seven miles west of Grayling, Michigan 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 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 daybreak and again in the late afternoon it is not unusual to find a Great Blue Heron quietly stalking it's prey in the shallows just across the river. At the top of the bluff is a hammock which overlooks the river.
At the end of the street there is a private undeveloped park. Guests may use to access the river and fly fish around the peninsula we are adjacent to.
The Upper Manistee River has been classified as a Natural River. This means that future development will have to meet certain standards - that will help to maintain the quality of the river and the river environment. The Natural Rivers Act along with the Upper Manistee River Association will be working together to make sure that there is a healthy trout population.

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 Take season runs from the last Saturday in April thru September 30. The rest of the year is Catch and Release only.

The den has a full size pull-out sofa bed, a matching chair and footstool. There is, also, a small Secretary and chair for you to write letters and or postcards to your friends and relatives. In one corner is a TV with an attached VCR/DVD Player. The 48" flat screen TV is satellite and therefore has many stations to choose from. There is a bookshelf with Cd's, DVDs, VCR Tapes and assorted reading material. And there is a Video Rental Store in Grayling (20 minutes away) if you are looking for a special movie.

In the kitchen pantry you will find playing cards and a few board games.

The house has a small laundry room with sink, washer and dryer for your needs. Bring your own high efficiency Laundry Soap, Softener, and Bleach.

The house has a one-car attached garage with an automatic opener. Although there is only a single car width driveway, it is long enough to accommodate a truck/car and trailer. We park our Jeep Liberty and 19' I/O Bowrider in the driveway with ease. Also, there is room to park extra cars on the street during the summer months.

Pets are welcome with written permission and a small fee/pet. Leash rules apply out of courtesy to our neighbors while on property.

The property is closed from October 31st to April 30th due to the intense winters.
