"Nestled among towering pines on a small rise overlooking Twelve Mile Lake are the cottages and original Lodge of a once working sawmill. For 60 years now the natural setting and magnificent view from every cottage have entranced guests. Picture 6 acres of mature stands of red pine, oak, and beech, the clear waters of a spring fed chain of lakes and a charming little cottage to call your own."
