Hi, we're Daniel and Cheryl!

We are Dan and Cheryl, and although we actually purchased the property in 2003, it has been in our family since the mid 70s. We both grew up in Toledo, Ohio, but we have been coming to beautiful Avery Lake since the late 60s, when we camped at the state forest campground. We now divide our time between Avery Lake, Ohio, and Florida.

We absolutely love the area that Avery Lake is located in. It is so removed from the hustle-bustle of downstate life. It is located in Montmorency County, which is probably the least developed of all the counties the northern part of lower Michigan. The lake water is of the highest quality. The drinking water comes from an 80 foot well and we think it's the best! We have two (now adult) children who were practically raised at Avery Lake in the summer, and they come back each year for a wonderful family reunion. The memories of this place are an important part of all of our lives, and we want to share with you the beauty that the house and area offer.

It is also a great place to use as a base for exploring the area, as there are numerous trout streams, rivers to kayak, trails to walk and bike on, other lakes to explore/fish, in the area. I love to fly fish on Avery Lake with poppers - both smallmouth and largemouth bass love 'em. Great to canoe or kayak on the Au Sable River too, just a 35 minute drive south from Avery Lake. We also enjoy bicycling around the lake, especially because so much of it is surrounded by state forest land. Fall has some of the greatest weather, and starting about mid-September, the foliage starts to gradually change, exploding into full color during October. I can't fail to mention what a delight it is to swim in water that is about the highest quality lake water you will find in Michigan.

Here is our property:

View from Lake. Shoreline maintained in natural state. Better for the lake!

Listen to the call of the loons from a modern, 3 bedroom, 2 bath A- frame house located on the shores of serene, 415 acre Avery Lake near Lewiston, MI. A quiet place to appreciate nature and just relax. Area wildlife includes deer, elk, black bear, bald eagles and more. Enjoy...

The Summer of Awesome

“ Excellent ”
August 29, 2015
Stayed here with my two daughters and two grandkids in July 2015 and all had a wonderful time. After everyone returned to their respective homes, we had a text conversation about it. Me: We should write a review about the Avery Lake house. DD2: You could say something about being able to step away from being plugged in. You can paddle out to explore little islands. It's peaceful out there. And the house is facing west so it's a great view of the sunset over the lake every night. 👍🏼 DD1: Lots of room, multiple decks, multiple kayaks, the sound of the loons Me: plenty of room in the house to spread out. Quiet lake for kayaking. Never saw a jet ski. DD2: The loons are nice and the water is clean - the lake is springfed. DD1: Yes very peaceful. there's an open spot on the upper stair landing where you can do yoga with a view of the lake Me: The little swimming area was nice for the kids DD2: and if you absolutely need Internet to check the weather or something, you can get reception by sitting on the end of the couch nearest the kitchen. 👍 Me: Good times! Thanks Dan!
