There’s a House on an Island in Gull Lake and It’s FOR SALE Right Now

Ultimate Getaway on Gull Lake: Private Island with Cottage Available for Purchase

Did you know that our very own Gull Lake has an island?

And that the island is home to a lovely little cottage?

It is!

And it’s for sale right now.

No Tickets to the Tropics Needed for this Island

Gull Lake is arguably one of the most beautiful inland lakes in Michigan. Spanning over 2,000 acres and reaching depths of over 100 feet, these crystal clear waters are ideal for boating, swimming, fishing and scuba diving.

Situated in the southwest corner of Gull Lake lies La Pequena Isla (“The Little Island”); this private island and its solo residence (a 1300 square foot cottage) are currently for sale.


Here’s the scoop on what’s for sale:

Step Inside this Private Retreat

The adorable stone and wood cottage was originally built in 1940 and offers plenty of entertaining space.

The main floor is 840 square feet and includes a master bedroom, dine-in kitchen, living room, and bathroom.

The upper level is 430 square feet and includes two additional bedrooms.

The pine-planked living room includes vaulted ceilings, skylights, and a spiral staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms.

Two screened verandas plus an eat-in kitchen offer plenty of dining space for family and friends.

Outdoor Features Galore

Beyond the obvious benefits of owning your own island, this property also features 600 feet of sandy shoreline from the island.

The cottage itself is also surrounded by towering hardwoods for additional privacy.
