520 feet of sandy frontage on 149 acre Lower Gresham Lake. Beautiful water clarity, view of state forest land across the lake & fishing for Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Musky, Northern Pike and Walleye.
Situated privately at the end of a small peninsula on 8 acres of land. Over 400 feet through the woods to the nearest neighbor to the south, and no neighbors to the north halfway around the lake. The location results in peaceful 180 degree views of unobstructed lake and uninhabited state land.
Lower Gresham Lake is a quiet, residential lake, making Gresham Retreat a relaxing destination for family fun! There’s ample wildlife viewing opportunities and peaceful and serene sunsets. Evenings are almost completely silent, only interrupted by the frog & loon calls, whip-or-wills and the occasional sounds of fish jumping, muskrats swimming by, or other wildlife.
View and listen to some of the videos in the gallery for examples of the peaceful atmosphere that guests enjoy daily at Gresham Retreat!
