Overview

About the property

- 2 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 12.

The cabin has 50 feet of waterfront with a southern exposure. The water is clean and clear and very gradually deepens creating a perfect swimming area for children. The cabin has a dock and deck area at the water. A canoe, small sailboat and paddle boat are included with the rental. A pontoon boat is available to rent. The 1,100 square foot cabin has two bedrooms with double beds and two sets of bunk beds on the enclosed back porch. There is an enclosed front porch as well which affords a wonderful view of the lake. There is one bathroom with a shower, a fully equipped kitchen and a combined dining area/living room with a beautiful stone fireplace. The landlords are next door to the property.

Golf and Groceries: There are several golf courses all within a half hour of the cabin. The cabin is located off US10 between Farwell and Evart. We are about 10 minutes away from Farwell and 15 away from Evart where major grocery shopping can be done. Clare is just 20 minutes away for additional shopping and a movie theater.

Eight Point Lake is a beautiful 400 acre all sports lake in central Michigan, easily accessed off US-10, 20 miles west of Clare. This is a well kept secret and although the lake is large enough to sail and use a power boat, there is not a lot of traffic on it, so it's relatively quiet and serene even on the weekends.

The DNR stocks the lake so here is good fishing, in fact many people fish very close to our dock so they must know something!

On the north shore we enjoy breezes almost every day and have the sun for the best part of the day.

We first vacationed at the cottage in the summer of 2005 and loved it so much we returned again in the summer of 2006. The lake is wonderful. The beach at the cottage is sandy and drops gradually. When I think of the vacations at thecottage I think RELAXING. Our kids ages 12 & 14 also loved it. We hope to return regularly.

The owner's description of the property was accura

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Hankus Rustic Cabin in June, to find a clean and orderly cabin. Well maintained, comfortable, well equipped home away from home. We had a nice week there. Our grandchildren absolutely loved the paddle boat, swimming and fishing. The Hankus couple were very welcoming and accommodating. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything I needed. Our stay was fantastic. We hope to return for another home away from home vacation soon. I would recommend this cabin to our friends and family. Glad that we found this cabin for a rental for ourselves and family for our vacation. Thank you for allowing us to rent your comfortable home.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice vacation at the log cabin.

Everything we needed was provided.

I cannot think of anything that was missing.

We enjoyed the "Old" log cabin very much.

Thanks for a great vacation!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing week! Kids enjoyed swimming, fishing and boating. Extremely friendly and generous owners and neighbors. Forgot the kids' bikes, but had plenty of which to choose. Would definitely return. More than enough room for everyone.

Picture Perfect, Dog Friendly Cabin on Lake

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from the cabin at Eight Point Lake, we couldn't recommend it enough! Kay and Dave are such warm, welcoming hosts. The cabin is quaint, well cared for, and literally steps to the lake, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. As promised, everything you could possibly need is available to use inside and out! We enjoyed the hospitality of the locals as we walked and biked around the lake. Make sure to visit Heaven Scent Herb Company for unique gifts, clothing and gourmet food items! We also enjoyed Cops and Doughnuts in Clare. Kay has a helpful book of local restaurants as well as things to see and do. This was a much needed, perfect little getaway! Reserve your time quickly for next year, as it's booking up fast!
