Topinabee invites you to join us along the shores of Mullett Lake in northern Michigan where the good life is always in season. We enjoy a wonderful small town atmosphere with shops, restaurants, and a local market and deli. But it’s the awesome natural beauty all around that is the real reason we live here in our part of the Great Up North. Come and visit us in Topinabee and you and your family will see what we mean!

And now the winter sports season is in full swing. Snowmobilers are extremely happy, and the recent cold snap caused ice fishing shanties to pop up like mushrooms after a warm spring rain.
TOPINABEE VILLAGE AT THE LIBRARY
The painted wood buildings are on display at the Topinabee Library. The buildings were made in 2000 by members of the Topinabee Community Church to sell at their annual bazar. Ken Burnett made the buildings and Marilyn Steilsta and Pat Callaghan painted the buildings. The buildings include the Noka Café, Topinabee Church, the Cottage next to the Market, the Post Office and library (it was grey then).
