Welcome to the Aubert Den. This cozy log cabin is located in the Ward Hills region of the Manistee National Forest. We invite you to come and enjoy all Lake County has to offer. Out the back door, you will find hiking trails leading you into the surrounding wooded hills. This immediate area is excellent for hiking, snow shoeing and seasonal hunting. Naturalists will enjoy our resident wildlife such as grouse, deer, owl and wood peckers. There are quite a few groomed cross-country ski trails are nearby. After dark, from time to time, the baying of the coyotes can be heard in the distance. For some fun and excitement, mountain bikers will find the North Country Trail just 3 miles from the cabin. Also, the Little 'O' ORV/ATV Trail can be reached by following our 2 track to the property line. Snowmobilers can find Trail 35 one mile east of the cabin. Fishermen may travel 4 miles from the cabin to the Pere Marquette River Access at Rainbow Rapids.
Inside the cabin, twin bedrooms are outfit with Amish made log bunk beds. Each bunk bed has a full size mattress on the bottom and a twin size mattress on the top, sleeping 3 persons per room. In the living room, a full sized futon comfortable sleeps an additional 2 persons, accommodating 8 persons maximum. All bedding and towels are provided.
The kitchen is equipped with a standard size refrigerator/freezer, four burner electric stove top, a medium sized toaster oven, microwave, crockpot, coffee pot, pots, pans, cooking utensils, dinnerware, silverware, glassware and table linens.

Alternatively, an outdoor glass patio table seats 4, or you may enjoy taking advantage of vintage TV trays (set of 4) and skip the formalities.
To ensure a meaningful getaway up north, no cable is provided. However, you are welcome to enjoy our extensive dvd collection that shall suit most interest types. We encourage our guests to spend time by the fire, as behind the cabin there is a fire ring for roasting goodies and telling stories.
We look forward to hosting your Northern Michigan adventure in the near future!!
The Aubert Den was exactly what my husband and I were wanting. We brought our 8 month old daughter with us, and this cabin made for such a cozy setting for our family. The cabin is literally in the forest--you can step out the back or front door and hike. In our opinion, the cabin was the perfect size. If you have a younger child, we had our daughter in a pack n play, and it fit perfectly between the bed and wall.
As for the owners, you couldn't ask for nicer people. Lawrence and Ashley were extremely accommodating! They provided us with great information about the surrounding area and even took us on a hike in the forest!
We hope to make it back to the Manistee National Forest, and we know where we'll be staying!
From the second we arrived to the day we sadly left, our experience was even better than expected. The cabin is so adorable and cozy, nestled in the woods with everything we needed or wanted, including homemade cookies on the table upon arrival! Many of the nearby trails, restaurants, and entertainment were organized in a book for us to customize our vacation. The woods were peaceful yet challenging for our snowshoeing adventures, and in the evenings, Trivial Pursuit 1980‘s Edition from their game pile was a hit. The Aubert Den is perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors or would just like to get away and relax. We would highly recommend this gem and are looking forward to our next visit!
