Located in the heart of the Hiawatha National Forest midway between Manistique and Munising at the junction of Thunder Lake Road and Foote Lake Road.

See what I mean? A little slice of heaven!!

View from the pier to Foote Rest across the lake. 

A little bit further down the Foote Rest shoreline.

Same view as the first picture but zoomed out. 




Yes, it's this beautiful!

As dry as we've been here in the UP, the color is still magnificent.  I took these pictures when the lake was like glass....this is God's country!

It's Fall!!

It's a gorgeous Autumn day here.   The many colored leaves are blanketing the ground and the air is filled with smells and sounds of Fall.   We have 7  trumpeter "swans a swimming" on the lake and trying to establish seniority by flapping their wings and chasing each other.   What a racket....we love it! 

Bow season has begun and what a glorious time to be out in the woods; small game season too, and we've seen some ruffed grouse.

Gun season for deer will begin in November.   We still have a couple openings for hunters.   We'll be open for the first week, November 15th through the 22nd, so let us hear from you if you need a comfortable place to stay!

Fall is in the air

It's been a little chilly here in the U.P.....tonight there will be a harvest moon, but it may be too cloudy to see it!!  We've had some rain and clouds so we're hoping the sun comes back soon.  Watch for some new pictures in the next week or so.  The colors are changing slowly but surely and the leaves will be reflecting in the lake...it's a beautiful time of year!!

A quick update

It's a beautiful day in the U.P. today....sunny with just a few high clouds and about 61 degrees!  Bear season with dogs opens tomorrow.  The 8 deer that are coming to Ted's feeder are losing their spots and their coats are getting darker.  They must be getting hungry, as normally there aren't that many.  He also feeds ducks and there are about 30 coming in now for food.  Every time there's a north wind on a cold morning the Canadian geese are migrating overhead too.  I guess Fall is in the air!
