More about Peaceful Cottage Living on North Gemini Lake
Just a few miles away, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore offers great hiking trails, a spectacular cross country ski trail, and hunting and fishing in abundance. In spring trillium and other wildflowers cover the forest floor. Protected and beautiful Munising Bay with dockage for sail and powerboats, and Grand Island, also administered as a park with spectacular natural features, lie to the north and west.
Summer offers many pleasures including kayaking on the lakes and rivers in the area or, starting at the harbor in Grand Marais, paddling on Lake Superior down the face of the Grand Sable Dune and past the rock grottos and sandstone cliffs of the Pictured Rocks, with fresh whitefish or pizza later under the parquet ceiling at the Dunes. I’d be tempted to keep a day sailor or powerboat in the harbor for longer jaunts.
You’ll find ready access to surrounding lands that are open to the public. It’s an absolutely wonderful place for a hunting/fishing camp, and if you haven’t seen the north woods in fall with the maples in full color, you haven’t lived.
For a snowmobiler, the winter in this area is as good as it gets. The groomed trails in the Pictured Rocks provide for a memorable and wonderful experience.
