Welcome to Harper Lake Resort! THE WREN - One of our two cheery two bedroom cottages complete with a patio and charcoal grill. Enjoy our picnic pavilion (stocked with wood for fireplace grill), complimentary canoes and kayak, and fire pit. You can even bring your own boat or snowmobile to this all seasons Resort. Easy access to Manistee National Forest, many rivers for kayak trips, or a quick drive to the town of Manistee to enjoy Lake Michigan, shopping and night life.
Water crafts are for use on Harper Lake only.
Respect the lake: return boats and other water accessories to the landing.
Respect the forest: be careful if you make a fire only in the vessels that we provide. Forest fires are a very real danger up here.
Respect the little island: If you choose to explore the island, do not litter or make a fire there.
Respect the neighborhood: No loud noise after 10pm
Respect the planet: garbage and recycling goes in marked bins
Children must be supervised at all times and wear life preservers when near/in the water.
Vera Ellen and Terry Connolly are Michigan natives. After retirement, they moved back to Terry’s birthplace in Dublin, and just recently, took over Harper Lake Resort. Vera Ellen is a master gardener and artist. Terry is full of laughter, a retired Engineer and a master at the art of re-engineering items! He is a farmer at heart and devotes much of his energy to their orchard and gardens at their little farm on their land in Dublin. They have great respect for their resort, the environment and for each other. Their children and grandchildren are always delighted to spend time with them. Be careful, you might not want to leave after you share in their hospitality at the sweet lakeside resort in the Manistee forest .
