Location Details

Of course, a trip to Fife Lake is not complete without a day on the water! Enjoy swimming, jet skiing, boating, and more on Fife Lake just 11 miles away. If fishing is your sport, bring the bait and tackle to catch some crappie, bass, pike, or walleye.

Home to dozens of trout fishing competitions and festivals throughout the summer season, including the National Trout Festival in Kalkaska, this area is truly ideal for fisherman of all ages!

If you prefer a more leisurely day on the water, head over to Manistee River for a calm kayak ride or kick back on an inner tube to float down the river.

Lace up the hiking boots and head to Traverse City State Forest 35 minutes away. Change up your usual routine with a ATV, OHV, snowmobile, or cross country ski excursion!

When you're ready for a day in the city, drive up to Traverse City to sunbathe at the beach, tour wineries and microbreweries, hike Sleeping Bear Dunes, or just enjoy the local shops and restaurants that make up this lively town!

  • Perfect Weekend Getaway


    This was exactly what our family needed for the new year. Perfect secluded location yet close to Traverse City. Clean and well stocked little farmhouse. We enjoyed the homemade treats upon arrival and the flexibility with times. The farm yard walks and animal viewing were a bonus. The owner even arranged for us to have ESPN on the tv so we didn’t miss the big game. All around, completely satisfied. Thank you so much!

  • Safe & Relaxing


    My family of 3 stayed at the farmhouse for a stressful weekend. When we arrived there was a fresh cherry pie, drinks, and snacks. The part of the house with stairs could be closed to prevent my 2 year old from climbing. Would stay again and recommend!

  • Really charming farmhouse


    This is an old, but updated, farmhouse on a great piece of land with a red barn in the back. My kids read to the cows every evening. The family who owns the house is wonderful. They took us on a tour of the farm, let us pet the animals and left us a pie upon arrival. Check in was very easy. It’s secluded. Internet was very good. Cell service was spotty in the area. My only real complaint is the water is hard. Very hard, but that shouldn’t deter you. This place is amazing, and I’d love to come back!
