Overview

Pinckney Cabin Rental Photos and Description

This original lakefront log cabin was built in 1930 as a fishing camp. It has a private dock and a spectacular view of Crooked Lake. This lake is a beautiful 110 acre all sports lake adjacent to the Waterloo Recreation Area. The recreation area encompasses 20,000 acres, has 47 miles of hiking trails, fishing lakes, nature and equestrian trails.

The cabin is approximately 950 sq. ft., with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. It still maintains the rustic ambiance but has been updated with modern conveniences. The front bedroom has a full bed and there are 2 built in log twin beds. Ideal as a private retreat for a couple or 4 people, but is capable of sleeping 6. The log sofa in the living room can be converted to a full size futon bed.

The lake has a public boat launch and you may bring your own boat. We provide a paddle boat, canoe and a couple of kayaks for your use.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

Wonderful week, bedding could be improved

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely spot, and the hosts are genuine, helpful and personable.

Plusses: great swimming, beautiful sunsets, kayak, paddleboat and canoe use, impeccably clean house, lots of outdoor seating that overlooks the lake, small private beach, fireplace indoors and firepit on the lake. The cabin itself is very charming, and the layout is great. Convenient location -- close to amenities/nearby cities and towns, but still in a scenic and quiet. Though this is not a particularly private spot - there are neighbours next-door, and the owners are just a few houses down -- it was very peaceful during the weekdays in particular.

Drawbacks: Bedding -- We found the double/full bed in the main bedroom was too firm for a good / pain-free nights's sleep -- we had to use additional camping mattresses on it. The other 2 beds are singles, and are not both in the same room (though they are comfortable). The convertible futon in the living room was not a feasible sleeping spot for 2 adults -- it was quite warped from time and use. In order to get a comfortable night's sleep, my spouse and I found ourselves sleeping separately in the two single beds, which was far from ideal on a romantic getaway. The amenities could also be improved by the addition of a few more lamps in the living room, as the overhead lighting is a bit bright for a cozy evening at the cabin.

Fabulous Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I planned a fishing weekend for our son's 16th birthday -- What a wonderful time we had!

We loved the charm of the cabin, the beautfiful
flowers, the chips and smores kit upon arrival, the fabulous lake, the
kayaks and paddle boat, fishing, walking the trails, and just
relaxing-enjoying each other's company. The beautiful pair of swans were
wonderful to watch each day. The lake was very quiet and being at the end
of the street made for a peaceful setting.

We had such a great time and loved the area so much that we are seriously
thinking of selling our place and moving to that area -- Doreen was a wonderful host but not overbearing.

Thank you for the great memories with our son!

New family tradition!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I got married last June, and with all the hustle and bustle we just let it slip our mind to plan a honeymoon till last minute! So the day after our wedding we decided to search around online for somewhere to go, & we found the crooked lake cabin! We loved it here, it was more than perfect for us! Doreen & Dominie are the sweetest! They left stuff for s'mores & even a bottle of wine on our table, for when we got in! Still haven't opened it yet! Plan on saving it as a 'wedding memory' but we thought it was the sweetest thing! Very clean, love that you don't have to bring barley anything! The lake was great, and we LOVE the fishing out there- we didn't even need live bait, tackle was fine! With that said, we CANNOT WAIT to come back this summer, with our nine month old, and for many summers after that! We recommend this cabin to everyone!

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four found the cabin on Crooked Lake to be the perfect get away, out done only by the hosts! D and D were friendly, accommodating and prepared a perfectly clean, restful place for our vacation. The lake is a dream, with a pair of swans that entertained us and fish that cooperated with the fishermen. The fire pit lakeside and a pleasant breeze through the cabin made for relaxing evenings and days. Kayaks were a great way to explore the lake and the trunk full of games were a great way to chill with our kids. Every inch of the cabin was clean, very clean which means a great deal to us when living in another person's home for a week. As for the surrounding area, we loved the town of Chelea, enjoyed a quick visit to Ann Arbor and Jackson and found wonderful placed to bike nearby. We'll be back for sure!

Map

The log cabin is located 6 miles from the village of Chelsea and 22 miles from Ann Arbor. It is only 3 miles from the expressway (I-94), yet secluded and away from all the bustle once you arrive at this lakeside sanctuary.
