Deer Park, Michigan is uniquely situated directly on Lake Superior and across the street from
Muskallonge Lake State Park. Because of its unique location 70,000 people visit the area during
the summer and countless snowmobiles pass through during the winter. Lake Superior snowfalls
are legendary. Deer Park is a cottage community with 2 convience stores here and a bar/gas
station (Pine Stump Bar) 8 miles south at Pine Stump Junction.

Possible Scenario wake up in the morning, sit in bed with a nice cup of "Caboose Coffee" and view
Lake Superior (Gitche Gumee) in all her temperamental glory, then go agate hunting on the beach or
fish the countless lakes in the area; maybe take a swim at the Muskallonge Lake beach or even in
Lake Superior. Take in a spectacular sunset or sunrise on the same beach (how rare). In the evening
sit on the beach and view the stars like you have never seen them (when was the last time you seen
the Milky Way). When they happen the Northern Lights displays are truly spectacular. In winter
snowmobiling is king here with 200 to 300 inches of annual snowfall. Part of the allure is the
"feeling" of remoteness and Lake Superiors rugged yet unspoiled beautiful shoreline. Fall colors only
add to this rugged beauty. A fast paced life doesn't exist here.
What about the "Caboose"? The "Caboose Style" Cottage is a very unique (copyrighted) design. Its
basically a luxury cottage designed to look similar to the Classic Railroad Train Caboose. It has a
living room w/fireplace, 1 bathroom w/2-person Jacuzzi, 2 bedrooms ( 1 bedroom upstairs in cupola is
closed off for storage - is now available for extra charge), kitchen with refrigerator,stove, microwave,
coffee maker and custom built dinette/booth, hardwood floor in kitchen, carper thru-out, 5 skylights,
2 ceiling fans, cathedral ceilings, 2 bay windows etc. There are accommodations to sleep 5 (9 with
the 2nd story "cupola" bedroom).
The Design was inspired by a real train caboose at Crossroads Village in Flint. It was hand built -
painstakingly - in the year 2000 (although took 6 years) proudly by the owner Frank with help and
encouragement from his father. "I'm very proud of my design, its original, very functional and its
fun. The Classic Train Caboose has been around for over 150 years and I intend to help make
sure this classic design is not forgotten.

Situated on 4 private wooded acres next to Muskallonge Lake State Park and on a 35' bluff
overlooking both a 3 acre pond (with stairway and walkway) and the always beautiful Lake
Superior. Ownership of 200' beachfront/lakefront is just a minutes walk (approx. 500') down from
the cottage, brings you access to miles of remote yet beautiful agate stone/sandy Lake Superior
beach. Very few beaches offer this kind of privacy and seclusion with very little development and
no high rise condos to spoil the vistas. Where else can you watch a summer sunrise and sunset
on the same beach. The fury and splendor of Lake Superior are yours to experience here.
Deer Park is 1/2 hr. North of Newberry, between Grand Marais (Pictured Rocks) and Paradise
(Whitefish Point - Tahquamenon Falls), and 1.5hrs from Munising and is considered the UP of
Michigan, Northern Michigan, or the Upper Peninsula.
