The Arrows are private family-owned homes located on Thousand Island Lake on the Cisco Chain of 15 Lakes in Michigan’s fantastic Upper Peninsula. Our homes are just a few miles over the Wisconsin border. We have two deluxe executive homes that will sleep up to 15 people each. They have many wonderful amenities. Two of our homes are located at the former Indianhead Resort: a three-bedroom, one bath home with a screened-in porch and a four-bedroom, two bath home that can be rented as one unit or two separate two bedroom units. We have just taken management of two other homes on Thousand Island Lake that we don’t even have up and running on this website yet! We are now renting out Eagle View, the former owners’ home at the former Lac La Belle Resort. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. We rented this home out for years. Many improvements have been made in the past couple of years, and we are happy to have this as a rental again. We also are renting out a two bedroom, one bath cottage (Sunset View Cottage) about a mile down the shoreline. It’s almost lake level, has a sandy shoreline, and will add variety to the kinds of places we can offer. Since Eagle View wasn’t rented for some time, we have all kinds of availability there. All of our homes have many great amenities for your added comfort as well. We will also be renting out the former Bluegill Point at Lac La Belle. We will have more information soon on this two bedroom one bath remodeled mobile home right on the water. It’s a great time to make reservations now. Just let us know what time you’re looking for and we will be happy to help you with your vacation plans!
We are 12 miles southwest of Watersmeet and 15 miles northwest of Land O’ Lakes, WI. We’re 34 miles from Eagle River, WI, 300 miles north of Milwaukee, WI and 390 miles north of Chicago, IL. It’s about a 5 ½ hour drive to either the Mackinaw Bridge or Minneapolis, MN.
We are close enough to being ice free here on Thousand Island Lake to proclaim it ice out! After 18″ of snow between April 6 and 10 or so, we thought it might be late. But we’re right on schedule to our norm of ice out between April 19 and 21. Mother Nature came through for us! All the snow is gone except for the residue of the piled up snow from plowing or that in the sheltered ditches. We saw our first budding trees yesterday! We’re in that in-between season, but there are plenty of memories to be made here on the beautiful Cisco Chain and in the U. P. now or in the future! Rates are super discount till May 14. If you need an escape, it’s an really inexpensive time to come. Waterfalls are great right now. You can even panfish if you like. And it’s a great time to start planning your vacations for this year, and we want to help! Just give us a call now at 906-358-4390 or cell 715-360-6650. Openings are listed in our booking calendars, but since we don’t have the new rentals’ pages up yet and things can change daily, it’s always best to call. Please give a call or text, and I’ll be happy to let you know what is open for your vacation dates plus I can give you a quote for your next visit.
We have our Facebook page up and running. Please “Like” us at The Arrows Resort! I have been posting regularly on our Facebook page, so check it out, too, for more information on our homes and area!
THE CISCO CHAIN OF LAKES is comprised of 15 navigable lakes with 270 miles of shoreline. Thousand Island Lake is the largest of these scenic lakes and has numerous islands and bays. A day boating on the chain is a memorable one… be sure to include the smaller uninhabited lakes, too.
WALLEYES, MUSKIES (the state record musky was caught in 1980 on our lake!) large and smallmouth bass, northerns, perch, crappies, and other panfish are plentiful. Many trophy fish are taken each year. Thousand Island also contains lake trout, splake, and cisco. Explore any of the 302 lakes and 241 miles of trout streams located in Watersmeet alone.
WILDLIFE abounds here. There are many, many nesting pairs of bald eagles and loons on our chain. Deer, coyote, raccoon, red fox, bobcat, skunk, otter, beaver, muskrat, bear, porcupine, fisher, etc. are abundant in our area. Even bobcats and timberwolves reside in Sylvania (we’ve had radio-collared wolves in our yard a few times!).
We are located in the OTTAWA NATIONAL FOREST and just one mile from Sylvania Wilderness and Recreation Area. Sylvania is a national forest with 21,000 acres of virgin forests and 36 unspoiled lakes. This area is closed to motor boats on most lakes (and snowmobiles in the winter), but it is available to the public for canoeing, picnicking, hiking, fishing, swimming, hunting (in season), and winter sports. There is a beautiful sand beach on Clark Lake which we highly recommend for swimming.
FLAMING FORESTS of colored trees brighten our area from the end of August till sometime in October. This is a wonderful time to visit the chain. The fish are biting better with the cooler waters, and fewer people are boating with school back in session. You’ll long remember the peacefulness and beauty of the chain in the fall. Late October and early November can provide some of the best fishing of the year! Terrific fall and spring discounts and super discounts.
BOWHUNTING AND SMALL GAME HUNTING are popular in the fall. Many deer, partridge, ducks, geese, and even bear are taken each year. Our gun deer season runs from November 15 to 30 each year.
ATV, UTV, SNOWMOBILE AND BIKE from your door. Our county road (Thousand Island Lake Road) is an access trail to the main snowmobile and ATV/UTV trails. You can legally ride on the right side of the road to the main trails. When the ice is safe, you can also access the snowmobile trail by sledding across the frozen lakes. You can connect up with the trail hub here that allows you to head east, west, north, and south here in Watersmeet for some of the best sledding you’ll ever have. The new bike trail includes all of Thousand Island Lake Road from the Watersmeet side to the Land O’ Lakes side and connect
