Enjoy 150 feet of private frontage on Lake Dubonnet which is designated as a State of Michigan Wildlife Management Area, making it an excellent spot for kayaking, fishing, bird watching, wildlife viewing, nature photography or just relaxing to the sights and sounds of northern Michigan!
There are no ski boats, jet skis or large motors on the lake. As a result the eagles, osprey, sandhill cranes, herons, loons, swans, geese, ducks, beavers, otters, deer and other wildlife thrive here. In fact, it's not unusual to see eagles and ospreys soaring over the lake and deer swimming to the island in front of the house. And, for several summers the sandhill cranes have raised their young on that island.
To help you enjoy all of this we provide two kayaks, an aluminum row boat, life jackets and fishing equipment!
Please note that since Lake Dubonnet is a designated wildlife management area, there aren't any swimming spots on the lake. However, there are many nearby beaches and we will be happy to provide information and directions to them.
