Every year, we rent a cabin somewhere "up north," usually on the North Shore. We have rarely returned to the same cabin. Our stay on Deer Lake this year is most definitely one we want to repeat!! The cabin itself is the best ever. So clean and well-cared for, offering the charm of a cabin combined with beautifully artistic woodwork and all the modern amenities we could want, including an incredibly comfortable bed. Extra bonus points for the Britta water filter. Having access to the kayaks and row boat were an added bonus. The lake itself is stunning -- beautiful and calming to view, easy to get into (sandy, shallow), and pleasant for kayaking. A few motor boats here and there, but mostly quiet, even on the weekend. The two decks on the way down to the lake offer relaxation with a stunning view surrounded by beautiful woods. This is a place that is magical, and owner Shelley, although not on site, is accessible and responsive to all needs. We will be returning!
