Located in: Kalkaska
*LAKEFRONT (Wheeler Lake)
***WiFi - ADDED IN JANUARY 2020***

Nice, quiet, peaceful, and serene, Wheeler Lake House is great for those who want to unwind. Only 8 homes rest on this private lake so guests are able to take in the woodlands, resident swans and loons, and stillness of the lake. Jump in one of the two row-boats and enjoy fishing on this all sports lake. Love the winter? Enjoy hoping on the maintained country road and vroom on over to a local snowmobile trail!

Wheeler Lake House consists of 2 buildings: the main house and a bunk house. The main house hosts 2 bedrooms, living room, bathroom and deck.
