Or the BEACH BUCKET Cabin: VRBO 425516 for perfect sand between your toes!

Shorecabin has a SPECTACULAR SWIMMING BEACH---sunset view, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath--LAKE MICHIGAN COTTAGE JUST NORTH OF HARBOR SPRINGS.....TUNNEL OF TREES GEM!

...CHECK CALENDAR FOR OPEN WEEKS!

ADORABLE: Regularly adored by many travelers as a favorite cottage along this magnificent stretch of road, this storybook log cabin paints a lovely picture! Like the original Bliss log homes that align this famous route, this rustic full log retreat is a holiday delight.

A CYCLISTS DREAM ROUTE: The narrow, curving passage of the 'M-119 Scenic Heritage Route' is celebrated for both tunneling trees and breathtaking vistas. This is where our postcard cabin sits; with amazing views high above Lake Michigan and a heavenly sand beach below.

BEACH & WOODS: The quaint setting offers thrilling views of yachts passing and an occasional freighter in the distance. . .far below the bluff is a very private SANDY beach ...behind the cabin is the tranquility of 6 wooded acres to exclusively explore. Kids and adults love to play in the backyard trails! Look for morels, and identify the birds and flowers. . .This charming haven supplies a bewitching bluff setting high above the water with exciting views of personal shimmering sandy beach below. The view is a panoramic frame of Charlevoix to the south and Beaver Island to the northwest with stunning sunsets in between.

POSTCARD CABIN: This vintage log retreat was properly pegged 'Shorecabin' when it was built by the original owners in the 1950's. Settle into our 2 bedroom, 1 bath full-log bungalow with cozy screened porch and relax as the world goes by. . . Or get up and have some fun down on the beach, which is accessed by a gently sloping pathway. This path crosses other private coastal owners in our association so the slope remains manageable(rather than steep steps) 10-15 minutes down, 15-20 minutes back up! It is worth every step!!

PRIVATE BEACH: Rest assured the beach is private to each owner's frontage. (seriously private--if you see more than 2 people in one outing, consider this a busy day of hello's!) It is unusual to see anyone else on this beach except in the distance. It is rare if anyone walks by. . enjoy the solitude.

SUNSETS: After savoring the day lazing on this clandestine 150' beach, have a cookout in the front yard (equipped with picnic table and hefty park-style charcoal BBQ) and take in sunsets that will captivate. View the big lake from a vantage point that will have you telling your friends and family about this amazing slice of real estate.

ROMANTIC: Charm also lies within 'Shorecabin'. The interior is designed in a 'French Country' style that is both comfy and simply romantic. The screened-in porch is ideal when you don't want to let go of another day. Grab a quilt and cozy up on the cushioned glider. Listen to the sounds of the lake and woods while you watch your campfire flicker.

GREAT LOCATION-----Superbly positioned only seven miles north of downtown Harbor Springs, there is excellent shopping, boating, and golf with several fine dining restaurants in the area. Recreational activities in the immediate area include biking, hiking, wildlife viewing, and horse back riding. It is an easy drive to the ferries of Mackinaw City for a wonderful trip to Mackinac Island. The lakeside communities of Petoskey, Bay Harbor, Cross Village or the inland waterway are quick trips, too.

Warning: There is much to do, but you may find it difficult to leave this magical setting! Come explore the beach and woods of 'upnorth' soon.

The winding, scenic tunnel of trees road lies between Shorecabin & the beach. A split rail fence is your only visual divider between the yard and the gorgeous lake beyond. Dogs are welcome here, and love the woods beyond & the lake below.

'Shorecabin' rekindles the nostalgia of a quintessential northern Michigan cabin experience.....

Amazing family vacation!

We had such a wonderful, relaxing week at this adorable cabin. It is on the small side, but was perfect for our family of four. The decor is adorable and was well equipped with anything we could possibly need. My favorite spot was the screened in porch to watch the hummingbirds in the morning. We were super lucky with the weather, so we spent most of our time on the beach or in the yard. The beach was gorgeous, although a bit of a hike (especially coming up the bluff). The owners do have a shed at the waterfront with plenty of chairs, umbrellas, toys and boogie boards (which my girls used every day) so you don't have to lug that stuff with you. One caution: there are boulders and rocks in the water, so it helps to have water shoes of some sort. The beach was very private and we all had so much fun there (including our dog!). At the cabin, campfires every night were a must! There was plenty of firewood on site, the owner even re-stocked it our first night there. We didn't venture out too much, but I would recommend Pond Hill Farm for a fabulous farm-fresh meal and market, wine tasting and the squash catapult. We also liked the atmosphere of Legs Inn in Cross Village (the kids loved it), the food was just OK. The best part was unplugging and spending time as a family reconnecting.

Owner's Response: The few giant and amazing boulders of Lake Michigan in this gold coast area were placed here by the corp of engineers long ago. They keep the sugary sand safe! 1 or 2 kids at a time can step up on them for picture taking. A couple of these smooth granite boulders peek out of the water near the shore, so they are easy to spot. Water shoes can help little feet from sliding off while climbing up on them! Otherwise, plan to see spectacular sand between your toes up and down this area of postcard perfect beach: a sand castle heaven!

Shorecabin was very clean and inviting; a good location for easy drives to Mackinaw, Boyne and Petoskey. Our kids loved playing at the beach. The owners offered extra kid friendly ideas, of which, the favorite was playing at Pond Hill Farm and launching cucumbers from a giant sling shot! Thank you for sharing Shorecabin with us.

We enjoyed a wonderful family vacation here in July. The cottage was perfect for our family of four, and it would make a charming getaway spot for two as well. IMMACULATELY clean, well appointed, breathtaking views, & just minutes from Harbor Springs and Petoskey. We felt like we were staying in the home of a friend rather than in a rental. The owners were terrific to work with -- very timely and thorough in their communications with us. They provided extra tips and advice on how to make the most of our visit. We created cherished memories with our children here, and plan to return in the future.

We will certainly share your praise of her work. Shorecabin is really a gem for families! We are rewarded when our guests are content:). Thanks for sharing!

My wife had a wonderful week in a "Hansel & Gretyl" cottage overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan. Reading a book on the swing on the screened porch or sipping wine while sitting by the bonfire on a cool evening watched the sun set over the water.

Charming Get-Away Cabin

It put a smile on our faces when we drove up. Great screened porch for sitting and enjoying the view of Lake Michigan. Trillium, Forget-Me-Nots, Pine trees, hummingbirds, sunset views.... what a great get-away location. Although on the smaller side, the decor and comfortable furnishings made it seem like staying at a cottage that has been in the family for years. A little bit of a walk to the beach but well worth it... like having your own private beach to walk on. Stayed over the holiday weekend and only saw a total of five other people on the beach the entire time. Having the shed with chairs and umbrella to use down at the shore was great. Far enough from the crowds but close enough for a scenic ride into Harbor Springs for dinner. Would definitely recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Flora and fauna abound at Shorecabin. It is fun to be buzzed by the hummingbirds in the yard,; quite a show all summer. We are pleased to hear your appreciation of the privacy, decor, beach amenities, scenery, and quaintness available at the cabin. Thanks for beginning our 2012 season with your cheery, informative recommendation. Please come back to northern Michigan soon!

We had a wonderful time at the cozy Shorecabin! I can't imagine a more idyllic setting or perfect beach. The woods (and it's deer and a very friendly little fox) were great for the kids and your fire pit was the perfect ending each night. Northern Michigan was well worth the long drive from Kansas City! Truly, Sarah & John ps---oh, and the flowers and card were a really nice touch, thank you.

We stayed here last fall for almost two weeks and it was fabulous! The cabin itself is precious and well-equipped. But it's the location that did it for us. Right on the lake, with easy access down the bluff (the dogs loved the beach!) and far enough from town to be rustic but close enough to zip in to get a morning paper or a good pizza at Turkeys Cafe. We'd go back in a hearbeat.

Owner's Response: Shorecabin is a quaint upnorth experience! WOW, your feedback is appreciated: fabulous location, precious cottage, spot-on amenities, and panoramic bluff & beach setting. It is exciting to share our yummy local restaurants, quick downtown access, and lively events in Harbor Springs and all of northern Michigan. Come back & join our lengthy list of repeat guests!

We had a wonderful time at the cozy Shorecabin! I can't imagine a more idyllic setting or perfect beach. The woods (and it's deer and a very friendly little fox) were great for the kids and your fire pit was the perfect ending each night. Staying on the Tunnel of Trees was close enough for some great day trips and visits to the lovely Harbor Springs, but far enough to get away from it all. And ideal location for cyclists!
