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.

Awesome Fishing

“ Excellent ”
September 9, 2015
What a Relaxing week, My family (My wife and I and 4 boys, 12, 14 and (2) 16 year olds)really enjoyed our stay. This fishing was the best we have ever had. We would fish in the morning, have lunch then swim, snorkel, kayak or just relax then enjoy dinner, fish in the evening, repeat the next day. The lake was the perfect size to let the boys go exploring on there own and not need to worry about jet ski's or people tubing. The house had all the amenities we needed. It was exactly as advertised. The boys were mesmerized by the loons and would mimic there calls and the loons would call back it was great to see them interact with nature instead of an Iphone.
