How many cabins do you have and what are they like?
There are four cabins. Three of the cabins are on the lake. The fourth cabin has a nice trail leading down to the lake. One of the cabins on the lake is made of log.
Inside The Cabins: The cabins’ décor provides a hint of rustic-sophistication. Each cabin has two bedrooms, a bathroom with a shower, and a kitchen / living room combo. The Kitchen / Living Room comes complete with all the appliances, including a full-size refrigerator, stove and oven as well as pots, pans, and cooking utensils, dining table for four, love seat and a gas space heater. The Bedrooms come complete with sheets, pillows and blankets. The Bathroom comes complete with a shower. Towel service is provided. Towels will be changed out on Wednesdays for week-long bookings. Please bring your own beach towels.
Outside The Cabins: Two of the cabins have large decks overlooking the beach area and lake. Each cabin has its own BBQ grill, picnic table, a lounger, four lawn chairs, and lines for hanging anything you’d like to air dry. Each cabin also comes with its own rowboat. You can bring your own motor for our rowboats. Our rowboats can handle motors up to 6 H.P. as well as electric motors. There are three docks leading out to the water. Two docks have stairs for convenient lake entry. Sit on the dock, throw out your fishing pole, or simply take in the breathtaking landscape. There is one paddleboat to share. First come, first serve. We are going to purchase our second paddleboat in the near future. There is one fire pit on the water’s edge.
What is the lake like?
Tee Lake is spring fed and very clear. The water has a soft, sandy bottom. There is currently not a beach entrance into the lake but we have plans for one in the near future. Presently, the water can be accessed from either stairs on the two docks. In the water is a floating swim platform / raft. There are many lakes in Northern Michigan with character and Tee Lake is one of these with three islands totaling 6 acres. Tee Lake is V-shaped and consists of a northwestern 70-foot-deep 157-acre basin and a southern 20-foot deep 72-acre basin. Water leaves the lake through the outlet on the southwest corner and flows into the East Branch of the Big Creek, which flows into the North Branch of the Au Sable River.
