Dear Friends.... We have a hidden jewel waiting for you in Cheboygan, the Mc Intosh Solitude Lodge. It is a newly-built but very rustic Log Cabin overlooking the straits area of Lake Huron. It's about 10 minutes east of town and right on US Hwy 23. The winding 450 ft. road that takes you to the cabin through beautiful woods affords privacy and envelops you in Nature!
When you arrive, it looks like any other log cabin, but one look inside the door and you will be amazed at the solid-wood (knotty cedar) interior! Bathrooms have 6' x 10' beams of cedar in them; rustic in spades! There are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths 2200 sq ft of beautiful lodge style living space.
There is a loft bedroom containing a queen bed and en suite bath. Two bedrooms are on the main floor, one with a double bed and the second with stacked bunk beds, perfect for the kids in your party.
The lower level bedroom also has a double bed.
The main level incorporates a large living/dining area along with an open kitchen. The view of the lake is spectacular from here.
The family/game room is on the lower level, along with a laundry room. Sliding glass doors lead to the hot tub, fire pit , outdoor dining area, and stairway to the beach.
There are two beautiful porches on the cabin; the back porch looks out over an ever-changing panorama of one of the great views of the great lakes. Who goes to the McIntosh lodge? Mostly it's families for reunions... there's lots of ways to set up your tribe, but we get a lot of people looking for an out-of-the-way intimate and romantic nest to spend some quality time with their mate. The common thread of all our guests is a desire for privacy, time apart from the maddening pace of life in 2007 and looking for a splendid way to recharge batteries. The cabin is about 400 feet from the water, and the sound of the waves at night will lull you to sleep very quickly. The trail down to the beach is a wonderful 1-minute nature walk, the beach stretches as far as you can see in either direction with virtually no development or people on it. There is one pair of cabins, about 500 feet East, and the private owners there are really wonderful people. There's an 80 foot pier/dock.
lake, perfect for sunning, reading a book in a beach chair, and hopping into the crystal-clear waters whenever you want! If you're wondering why the prices are so reasonable at the lodge, it's because I set them that way so that I will be able to afford more people a chance to see one of the most peaceful and beautiful cabins on the entire Great Lakes. Lots of amenities are nearby, you probably know most or all of them, but what you might not know is that there is a great full-service hospital less then 15 minutes away, people up in northern Michigan small towns are really friendly, and there are terrific things to do there at ANY time of year.
Best wishes from us both,
Tom Mc Intosh and Susan Hamann
