FAMILY FRIENDLY BOATING & FISHING ON MICHIGAN INLAND WATERWAY

Cheboygan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-10)

Enjoy the entire INLAND WATERWAY from a nicely appointed cabin with 100 feet of frontage on the Black River.

You may dock your boat right on the Black River with access to 45 miles of Inland Waterway and the Straits of Mackinaw. Fishing is superb right from the dock! Or if you prefer, use the waterway to access the inland lakes [Mullet and Burt etc.] or Lake Michigan to fish and/or cruise to Bois Blanc ( Boblo) or even Mackinac Island.

My Cabin has a 10' x 65' Sun Deck, Full Kitchen with Dishwasher and Garbage Disposal. I have a gas Barbecue with Outdoor Patio Furniture and I have a fire pit down by the river to enjoy warm nights under the stars.

Springtime brings out the migratory birds and water fowl which are rarely seen anywhere else.

Other activities include bicycling on Mackinac Island that is 11 miles from the Cheboygan inlet, [25 minutes by car] water skiing, golfing at world class courses, and mushroom hunting in the spring.

There is also a Restaurant / Bar with entertainment within walking distance. They have a fish fry every Friday night, GREAT Pizza and a full menu for those nights you just feel like relaxing.

I bought the Cabin because of the location on the Inland Waterway, it's location to Mackinaw and the Straits of Mackinaw.

I also love to be there in the spring when the migratory water fowl are plentiful.

The place is quiet, the dock is very relaxing and very nice in the morning with coffee and also at sunset. The beaver swims by promptly at 9PM [you can set your watch by it]

Also, The neighbors are helpful in a fix but not even noticeable on an average day.

Six of us just returned from this clean and cozy cottage. The land is beautiful and we loved our bonfires by the lake. We fished in Long Lake which is five minutes away but had more luck right off the dock. We caught Small Mouth Bass, Large Mouth Bass, Rockfish, Perch and Pike . What a variety! (and yes, we saw the beaver : ).

The cottage is close to anything you need from grocery stores to tourist attractions. We visited Mackinaw City, Tunnel of Trees, Mackinaw Island, Indian River-The Cross in the Woods, downtown Harbor Springs. and the kids went to see some bear thing in the UP, Best pizza in town-This Old House Pizza on the corner of Main and Jackson. Be prepared to put on a couple of pounds ; )

The pictures really don't do this property justice. The view from the patio is beautiful and enjoyed listening to nature.

Our host, Ken is willing to answer any questions and is quick with emails. I highly recommend this cottage. Thank you Ken. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We just got back from spending a long week at the Black River Retreat and are delighted to recommend this cabin both for its amenities and location. There’s plenty of room and the kitchen is well equipped, including a full-size fridge. The deck is large with a table, chairs and umbrella and there’s a nice propane grill. The property is large and the pictures on the web-site don’t do the view justice--except for the tree-line you can see almost from horizon to horizon. You can sit on the deck for breakfast or dinner and look across the river to see deer and wild turkeys, and in the evening you can hear the coyotes howl in the distance.

The breeze off the deck was wonderful, in the shade for dinner, and with hardly any bugs--we didn’t need any mosquito repellant the entire time! We watched the sunrise from the deck, the sunset in Cheboygan, and saw a billion stars.

The corner store is within eyeshot (next to the church) and has hand-dipped ice cream for $1.50/scoop, package liquor, and almost anything you’d need in a pinch and is open from 8am until 9:30pm most days. The local tavern is just down the road with a Friday Fish Fry, famous pizza, karaoke, pool table and a very friendly vibe from both patrons and employees.

We took day-trips to Cheboygan, Mackinaw City, the Tunnel of Trees on M-119, Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Charlevoix--all within an hour’s drive or closer. There are plenty of good restaurants, both adult and family-style, or you can save a bundle by cooking meals yourself. Glen’s and Wal-mart groceries are only about fifteen minutes away. For entertainment you can fish from the dock and at the dam, or watch TV, DVD’s and video tapes or listen to the stereo.

The owner is such a gentleman and so easy to do business with. We had a wonderful and relaxing time and will definitely return in the future. ‘Hoping you enjoy your stay as much as we did ours!
