Overview

Paw Paw Cabin Rental Photos and Description

- 1 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 4 Max.

Conveniently located just two hours from both Chicago and Detroit with easy access from I-94, Maple Leaf Cabin is located on Maple Lake, which is a mile-long, 172 acre all sports lake fed by the Paw Paw River. Rent our pontoon boat, Miss Maple, and enjoy a tour around the lake ($250 per weekend or $350 per week--includes gas!). Watch the sun shimmer on the the lake and enjoy a glass of wine from your Adirondack chair as the ducks and swans take off and land on the water. On cool evenings circle around the fire pit (seasoned fire wood provided) and be mesmerized by the dancing flames and their reflections on the water. Fish in the lake from the seawall deck or paddle out in the canoe. Stroll four blocks into town for ice cream or a movie at the vintage theater ($3!), or for dinner and drinks at a local restaurant or pub. Visit local wineries, U-Pick farms or hunt for antiques. There's something fun for everyone at Maple Leaf Cabin--and don't forget your four-legged friends!

Super cute cabin in idyllic setting

  • 4 of 5
The owner put a lot of time and effort in creating a storybook cabin setting with Ralph Lauren style theme of maple leaves, ducks and fish. The attention to detail continues through the outdoor space with the red, white and yellow flowers everywhere, with matching adirondack chairs. The screen porch is wonderful, and we slept on it most nights. My husband especially loved the outdoor shower. We loved going out in Miss Maple and the canoe. And the swan family added a nice touch. It's wonderful to be able to bring your pet (Rufus LOVED it), and the house showed no signs of pets having been there with odors or fur, etc. Our 9 year old daughter loved it as well.

The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because, although pretty to look at, the lake isn't the best for swimming. Another thing to consider is that it's probably best for one or two people--and those who pack lightly. There isn't much space to store clothes or luggage, so we had to have a lot of things out. The charm of the house was diminished with the clutter of our stuff.

Owner's Response: Yes, Maple Lake is definitely more of a fishing and boating lake than a swimming lake--seems most of the swimming is done by our canine guests. And while an additional guest or two are more than welcome, the cabin is really best suited to a couple (and their dog) as it has just the one bedroom. Still I'm glad you all seemed to have a good time and can visit again some time soon..

Best Place Ever!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I had the best time relaxing on the big beautiful screened in porch. Watching the ducks and swans that came by. The cabin was very cozy and comfortable. Miss Maple was the highlight of our stay. Cabin has just about everything you need to make you not want to leave at the end of your stay! Even had a hard time getting the dogs into the car to go home!! Looking forward to another wonderful stay. I would highly recommend this cabin to all who need to get away but don't want to have to travel a far distance. The only thing I would recommend is that you bring food and drink from home. The food prices were quite expensive in town. Still the best place I've stayed at for a short vacation ever!!!

Fell more in love with cabin and lake everyday

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I had an amazing 4 day weekend here with our two dogs. The cabin is wonderfully themed and there is fantastic screened in porch to enjoy the lake and wildlife in any weather, we even fell asleep out there two nights in a row. The lake is literally right out your back door along with ducks and swans who come to visit through out the day. Our favorite part was cruising Miss Maple, the pontoon boat. Worth ever penny! The lake is beautiful and well maintained and just gorgeous to be out on a boat, especially like Miss Maple. We had great weather everyday and were out on the boat majority of the time. One of the best things about this rental was the promptness and easygoingness of the renter, Shawn. She made everything so easy and stress free and she treated you like a friend rather than just money in her pocket. We go on many vacations and rent and this is by far the easiest most stress free vacation I have planned thanks to Shawn. She is very easy to contact. Overall, we had amazing time at this great little gem in Paw Paw, MI and will definitely be coming back. Thanks for your hospitality Shawn! And thanks to your neighbors for helping as well!

Like having your very own special place

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at the cabin. It's beautiful in the pictures online which are all during the summer and it's equally amazing during the winter months with snow all around it and the lake covered with snow, and the geese and the swans, it was magical. We made good use of the fire pit our second night there before the snow got to deep and the temp dropped too low. It was warm, cozy and had everything we needed right at our fingertips. We all had a great time and would recommend this cabin to everyone in any season.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we stepped in we were mesmerized. The view is spectacular, the wildlife ( Birds, squirrels, ducks, swans, etc.) are entertaining, and the decor is detailed to the max with the maple theme. Everything you need is thought of, and we highly recommend Miss Maple, the pontoon boat. Fishing was great, and the town is close with wineries, restaurants, and more. One of the best times we've ever had and can't wait to go again.

Perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5
This property was exactly what my husband and I needed for a quick getaway. The home itself was adorable and had all of the little extras that you don't need to bring. The screened in porch was great for meals and the fire pit was perfect for a chilly night. Miss Maple was the best. We fished off of the boat and tooled around the lake which made a perfect day. I will absolutely be back to this perfect little getaway.
