LOG CABIN IN PRISTINE NORTHERN WOODS AND WATER PRIVATE RETREAT

Lake City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

This is not your ordinary vacation rental. If you need to be on the phone or the computer, this is not the place for you. We do provide a TV for watching movies. Twenty miles north of the Mackinaw Bridge, we are in the middle of the Hiawatha National Forest on a small inland lake. Yet we are close enough to freeway and local attractions, to return to civilization whenever the mood strikes.

The lake is a shallow lake good for kayaking,(3 kayaks are included as is a rowboat), canoeing, and fishing. We are surrounded by forest and wildlife. It is not uncommon to see wolves, bears, and on a rare occasion moose.

The lake has 3 pair of nesting loons, that fill the air with the pristine sound of nature. Great spot for birding. If you love birds you will be in paradise. Eagles, hummingbirds, pileated woodpeckers, kingfishers, warblers, more types of water fowl than I can list here.

North Country Trail traverses the area and is excellent for hiking. ATV trails are also near by. If you enjoy biking cross country, you will love it here.

Lake Michigan Beach off US-2 is about 20 minutes away, if you want to enjoy swimming on a beautiful sandy shoreline. Tacquamenon Falls are about a hour north, as is Whitefish Point. The ferry to Mackinaw Island is a half an hour south. Sault Ste. Marie and the Soo Locks, are 45 min. northeast.

This is the place to really escape. Easy access on good roads. Very few houses on this thousand acre lake, as 75% of the shoreline is owned by the national forest.

More than we expected

My husband and I went to the Log Cabin in the UP for our first vacation without kids in 19 years. We expected this location to be our "home base" for day trips. When we arrived, the place was beautiful, quiet, clean and very cozy.
The pair of hummingbirds were amazing to watch, the lake was quiet and the area was beautiful. We stayed at the cabin more than we thought we would. It was a great retreat for us. We read, even put together a jigsaw puzzle - very relaxing.
We thought we would only last two or three days without the hustle and bustle of normal life, but this location proved to be exactly what we both needed to rest and to slow down and take in nature. We only wish our teenage kids would have joined us - they would have loved it.
We've recommended this location to many of our family and friends. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. I think the word retreat is very appropriate. I always feel refreshed after I leave too.

Moran Cabin

We just spent a week at the Moran cabin in July 2012 and we absolutely loved it. The cabin is beautiful and very nicely decorated. No tv and we didn't miss it at all. The cabin is in easy traveling distance to a number of area attractions and shopping (1/2 hour to 1 hour). Pet friendly which was nice since we were not able to locate a kennel for our dog. We have recommended this location to a number of our friends. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

A Dream Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 17, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We stayed here last summer and thoughts of this place stayed in my mind all winter long. The photos and description on here do not do this cabin justice. It is immaculate, beautifully decorated with amazing attention to detail, and provides everything you could possibly need for a relaxing week. We used it as a base for a variety of day trips, but also thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent just lounging around the cabin, using the canoes and kayaks provided to explore the serene lake. Our plan was to explore the western end of the UP this summer, but all 3 of us are kind of wanting to return here instead! A huge thanks for these generous owners for sharing their beautiful home that they built themselves!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words.
We are so happy that the time you spent here meant so much to your family. It is our hope to create an experience not just provide lodging, and it sounds as though we succeeded with you. We hope you are able to return someday.
