Welcome to the Wolfe Bay Retreat Home Page

This Eastern Upper Peninsula home sits in a wooded area, across the road from Wolfe Bay on the the beautiful South Manistique Lake, three miles West of Curtis, Michigan, and just over an hour West of the Mackinac Bridge.

The three Manistique Lakes in the Curtis area are abundant with walleye, perch, northern pike, tiger muskie, whitefish and panfish.   The fall hunting is among the best, and the beautiful winter scenery makes snowmobiling, ice fishing, and cross country skiing a very enjoyable experience.   In the spring, find mushrooms, dip for smelt, and enjoy the spring flowers. In the summer, enjoy boating, canoeing, bicycling, the Independence Day Celebration, and arts and crafts shows.   Autumn colors are spectacular.

The cabin was built in 2005 2006 by loving groups and volunteers.   All are welcome. Discounts will be given to those in vocational Christian service.  The cabin is large enough for staff retreats.

While each bed has a bedspread, you will need to bring your own bedding so we can maintain lower rates.
