Hi, I am Ken, and with my wife Michelle, we are offering this cabin for rent. We live in South Lyon and are 'up north' most weekends (we have a cabin across the lake from this rental). We have 2 college age boys and 2 English Setters.

Ken Kosal purchased this cabin in 2013

Michelle and I purchased this cabin in the fall of 2013 to 'keep it in the family'. We built a cabin on the other side of the lake in 2000, however from the time I was a baby I was coming up to this 'side of the lake'. This cabin is next to other family members and was very important to us to keep it in the family. I have 2 boys that will eventually end up with this place. In the interim we have chosen to rent this so others can enjoy the area/cabin/lake as I have for 50yrs.

This is a very family friendly location. Lots of room to enjoy the outdoors with the large lot, fire pit, deck, lakeside bench. There is a hiking trail around the lake, accessible from the end of the road, as well as Reid Lake nature area 3miles away. The 'ball diamond' is located in the park 1 block away with 'old fashion' playground equipment, a basketball court, horseshoe pits and is the 'center' of the Biggest 4th in the North.

JULY KIDS TRIP

  • 5 of 5
OUTSTANDING! Over the years I have stayed at many cabins and even some houses for vacations- This one is one of the best. The layout was everything Ken said it would be. Super clean and very well maintained. The area is super quite and peaceful. The fishing was good and the kids enjoyed the adventure to the island. I highly recommend the Knotty Pine.

Owner's Response: Steve, I am glad you and the kids had a great time and found the cabin to be everything it was "said to be"! The fish picture you texted me sure looked nice.... and to know he is back in the lake for another angler to catch is an added bonus. I hope Michelle and I can host you and your family in the future. Regards, Ken

WHAT AN AWESOME PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
The Kosals have done a great job setting this cabin up for their customers. The place was clean and extremely well equipped, better than we were even expecting. I don't think you could find a better value. Nice lake, complete kitchen, charcoal grill, LCD TV/disc player (but no cable or satellite), many DVD movies, paddle boat, row boat, etc., etc.
The lake had very little traffic while we were there and we enjoyed taking our own boat out on it many times during our stay. Friendly neighbors as well.
We didn't happen to try out the local bar, but the gas station store had very good pizza and homemade cinnamon rolls.
Some things to do in the area besides the lakes are horseback riding at the Karefree Ranch near Fairview (we highly recommend them!), take the hike down to the Largo Springs off River Road (both about 30 minutes away), or check the many things to do in the Alpena area (about 50 minutes away). A little research can find something for everyone.
We would not hesitate to rent the cabin again.

Owner's Response: Gary and Family, thank you for the review. I agree with you the BC Store has great "sticky buns" and pizza. Mo and Gary (the owners) are great people and run a great business. You guys packed a lot into your stay, and sounds like you really enjoyed yourselves. I am glad you brought up the Karefree ranch for horseback riding, I forgot to list that in "the book" of area activities. We went there many times in past summers on horse back rides thru the woods, however we never made it for sleigh rides in the winter! Again, it is great to hear that Michelle and I hit the mark in setting up the Cabin for a great experience! Thank you and we look forward to hosting you again.
Ken & Michelle

BOOK IT!

  • 5 of 5
We needed to recharge and slow down. This cabin and location was a perfect setting for our family and dog. The sand area, fire pit and boats were an added bonus. The water was shallow enough for the kids so I could relax! The owners truly thought of everything. Spices were appreciated as we cooked most nights on the grill. The water pressure in the shower isn't the greatest not sure if a new shower head is needed because the pressure at the kitchen sink was fine. We are hoping to return next summer and typically we don't return to the same cabin twice!

Owner's Response: Nichol and Family, I am glad you had a great time! The neighbors commented on how much your kids played in the water and seemed to enjoy themselves. In a testament to you and your husband they also commented on how well behaved the kids are. The Shower Head issue was caught by the cleaning service and has been corrected, there was sediment in the head (tons of pressure again!) Your comments on us "thinking of everything" is appreciated, we truly attempted to think of "what would we want/expect" and set the Knotty Pine Retreat up that way. I hope a future trip to the Knotty Pine Retreat works out, Michelle and I would love to host you!

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was beautiful, cozy and absolutely spotless. Everything you could possibly need was there. Clean sheets, towels, kitchen utensils and appliances. There were books and games. The outside deck with grill and furniture were very nice and having access to a boat is also a plus. The view from the cabin is spectacular. Our family is looking forward to staying again in the future.

Owner's Response: Randy, I am glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at the cabin. As I have said before, we attempted to "think of everything" when putting the cabin together to rent, sounds like we met our goal. It was a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to hosting you again. Ken

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Came up on a Friday night and stayed till Sunday (2 couples). Wished we could have stayed longer! The cabin is nice and clean - the owners have thought of everything when it came to stocking the kitchen with necessaties and basics (pots/pans, spices,cooking oil, things of this nature). The lake is beautiful and the fireplace down by the water offered a nice relaxing place to hang out. Couldn't ask for a better place to experience Barton City! We will be back again. Highly Recommond staying here!!!!

GREAT PLACE-HIGHLY RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5
Quaint retreat. Quite/clean and a great view of the lake. Will be returning in the summer to enjoy the lake. Quick access to the snowmobile trail head. Accessed the trails directly from the cabin via the lake... Very convenient.
