Michigan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

- 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.

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.

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!

Great place to relax.

We had a very relaxing week at the cabin on Eight Point lake. It was our first visit and it was as advertised. It is clean, very comfortable and dog friendly.(Heidi loved it!) It comes with everything you need for your stay. Kay and Dave were great hosts and we have a reservation for next summer. We can't wait!

The property and house is well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Kay Hankus was very welcoming. She provided a book with a lot of information about the area that was very helpful. I would recommend this property to anyone, as long as they did not try to take my week. Swimming, fishing, boating are some of the wonderful things to do. We chose to cook at home and not miss a moment on the lake. On the way home we went to the Lumberjack Festival in Farwell and had a great time.

Great cabin for relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Eight Point Lake. Couldn't have chosen a better cabin! The pictures are completely accurate, no surprises. Everything was clean and comfortable. Décor was great, kitchen well stocked, plenty of towels and bathroom amenities. This is the first cabin we have rented where everything that was promised was actually there. I could have spent the entire week on the front porch alone. Nice size lake without a lot of traffic. The pontoon is a must!!

This was our first visit to Eight Ponit Lake and we loved it. Our experience was better than advertised. We hope to have the opportunity to rent this cottage again. Thanks!

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.
