About Mike and Julie Parker

We are life time Michiganders and thoroughly enjoy the 'up north' experience. We enjoy riding our ATVs and Jeep and have taken so many trips to this area because there is just so much we love to do! We hope you will come and stay and make wonderful memories of your own.

Mike and Julie Parker purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mike and Julie Parker chose Saint Helen

We have traveled to the West Branch/ Houghton Lake/ St. Helen area for years to drive our jeep and quads and to play golf. After numerous trips, we realized this area was the perfect 'up north' destination! We feel lucky to have found such a beautiful log home in such a great location.

What makes this cabin unique

After seeing the character of the log interior, along with the beautiful river rock fireplace, we were enchanted. After relaxing out on the deck and taking in the surrounding beauty, we were sold! This property has the charm of a log home with all the modern amenities that make for an exceptional experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We relaxed, enjoyed sunsets, explored nearby areas, played board games, and enjoyed cabin time.

Our family enjoyed this beautiful cabin/home. We were able to spend quality time together while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful setting.

Wonderful Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 13 friends that stayed at Parker's Cozy Cabin for two nights. The cabin was very clean and well furnished in the kitchen, a lot of extra blankets, and much more that made it seem like home. We weren't able to spend time outdoors because it was a very cold weekend. It would have been fun to explore the area. So we stayed inside, played games and celebrated 3 of the guys turning 50. The owner was very nice to work with and answered my questions promptly. It worked out good that the kids could spend time in the nicely furnished basement. I know everyone was happy with this place and I would definitely refer this cabin to other people. In fact I'd like to go again sometime in the future. No complaints whatsoever!

great getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

The Parker's were great to work with. The place was spot on, clean and well equipped. Snowmobiling and ice fishing proved to be a lot of fun. The family time at this cabin was priceless.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this cabin as our Christmas present to each other so we could all just be together and spend time with one another. And it was perfect for that! As gorgeous as this cabin is in the pictures, it's even more gorgeous in person! It has absolutely everything you could want or need. There is no need to have to leave once you are here...it really has all the amenities. We watched movies and played board/card games all next to the Amazing fireplace! It was so cozy and relaxing and exceeded our expectations! We even cooked hotdogs in the fire pit outside. There is also enough of a hill that you could sled down towards the lake...so we will definitely being bringing our sleds next year. The owners are Amazing. They are very readily available anytime you have questions about anything and extremely kind. There is no doubt we will be back next year, but will be staying a couple more days!

Great time for new year's eve

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous log cabin for a few days and could not have been happier. There was plenty of room to accommodate all 12 of us (adults and children), every single tool we needed for cooking, plenty of wood and great decorations throughout. Even though it was really cold outside, the cabin stayed nice and warm, without having to turn up the heat too much. We spent some time exploring the area, crossed the frozen lake to the island and planted a flag there just for fun. We even had a friendly white lab visit a couple of times (belongs to one of the neighbors). All in all, we had a really great time and will definitely come back this year when it's warmer.

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had all looked at the pictures online, but upon arrival we were all blown away. The cabin is BEAUTIFUL!! Everything was clean and tidy. There were no complaints from anyone in our group. We had 10 people and there was plenty of room for all of us to enjoy the cabin. The lake is beautiful and there were some awesome sunrises and sunsets. The lake overall is pretty secluded. There are about 6 to 8 houses/cabins in a row right beside this place, but there are hardly any others around the lake. There is one house right beside and on the other side there is an empty lot. We did a lot of ATV riding and there is access to all of the trails pretty close to the cabin. Any questions that I had I emailed Mike and he was always very quick to respond. I would absolutely recommend staying here!!
