Our cottage is located in Mecosta County near Barryton, MI . There are 9 lakes in the Martiny Chain of Lakes, including Lost Lake, Tubbs Lake, Big Evans Lake, Lower Evans Lake, Upper Evans Lake, Saddlebag Lake, Boom Lake, Bass Lake, and Dogfish Lake (1700 acres of water). The Winchester Dam was built in 1955 on Tubbs Lake as part of the Martiny Chain Of Lakes project. This project raised the water levels by more then 8ft. over 1600 acres of the Martiny Lakes State game area, thereby connecting all the lakes. Some fishermen say that some of the best fishing is found in the Martiny Chain of Lakes. Bass, Bluegill, Northern Pike, Yellow Perch, Warmouth, Pumpkinseed, Black Crappie, Bullhead and Dogfish are abundantly found in the Martiny Chain of Lakes. Much of the lakes' frontage is in the state game area which prevents it from being developed, giving home to deer, raccoons, beavers, otters, bear, wood ducks, nesting osprey, loons, herons, bald eagles, mallards, geese, swans and many other types of wildlife. In the middle of the chain of lakes a 600 acre island is just waiting to be explored! Our cottage has a dock to fish off from and hook up your boat. Fishing is EXCELLENT. Bring your cell phone, as we don't provide a phone at the cottage. Or leave it at home and just kick back & relax!! Listen to the birds, the wind blowing the leaves and watch the ripple on the water shimmering like diamonds!!
