Petoskey Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Two story lakefront log cabin (1800+ square feet) with all the modern amenities. Cabin sits on a large grassy lot that goes up to the water, with hard packed sand bottom perfect for swimming, wading, boating, fishing. Fire pit at the lakefront. Boat rentals available from local marinas or bring your own boat and launch from nearby public launch. Boat right up to owners dock and moor your boat there. Excellent fishing (bass, walleye, pike). Pickerel Lake is by far the most quiet of the Inland Waterway. Great waterskiing, wake boarding, and all boating activities. Incredible sunsets.

The Inland Waterway will connect you by boat to Crooked Lake, Burt Lake, Mullet Lake and Lake Michigan (and Mackinaw Island). The Mackinaw Bridge and Mackinaw Island are just 30 minutes by car and Traverse City (Cherry Capital of the World and shopping) is just 1 1/2 hours away. Thunder Falls water park is located in Mackinaw City.

Downtown Petoskey, as well as nearby Charlevoix and Harbor Springs have many activities year round to enjoy as well as excellent shopping!

The cabin has 3 bedrooms downstairs, 2 bedrooms have queen size log beds, one bedroom has a full size log bed. Washer and dryer on first floor. The loft has 2 queen size log beds. All linens are new and very cozy. One bathroom downstairs with shower and one full bathroom upstairs with tub and shower. The large living room has original field stone wood burning fireplace, very cozy, with attached screened-in porch. Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen and a gas grill on the patio. A party store is within walking distance for all general food supplies, as well as, fishing license, bait, videos, pizza and other carryout foods.

This cabin was built in 1935 and the owners take pride in updating and adding something new every year to this unique cabin.

About Patrick

Chicago native who has enjoyed more than 30 years of Pickerel Lake vacations. Since I can't be there all the time, I enjoy sharing this special place with select families and friends. I have very limited availability, since most of my guests return year after year. The rental calendar is always up to date, so act fast if you find a week that's open for your vacation.

Patrick purchased this cabin in 2009

What makes this cabin unique

Petoskey and Pickerel Lake is our favorite place to be. We simply would not miss a beautiful summer with all its wildlife, sunsets, camp fires and boating. It's a special place for families to make memories.

Our favorite vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this cottage for four years and it has become a tradition with all of our family. The cottage has all of the charm of the ideal log cabin on a lake with large living room with beams and a huge stone fireplace. It feels just like home with its thoughtful decor and comfort. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and there is a big table for outdoor dining. My kids love the yard. It is flat and grassy and perfect for lawn games. There is a fire pit by the water and plenty of firewood. Every night is family gathering time with games and stargazing. We all love Pickerel Lake for it's beauty and calmness. It is quiet compared to larger lakes and has the most beautiful views from the shore. It is perfectly located for breath-taking sunsets. The cottage neighboring area is wonderful for walks and there is a convenience store nearby for forgotten items and great pizza. Crooked Lake (attached by a small natural waterway) has several marinas for boat rentals. Every thing we need is nearby and each year we think we will do more exploring, but are so content to stay and enjoy the cottage and the lake. The owner is great to work with and makes an effort to make sure our family enjoys the week. I to recommend this cottage for it has made many wonderful memories for our family.

Perfect cottage on Pickerel Lake!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family has gotten together every year over the past 8 years to rent a cottage on the lake and we have all agreed that this is the best one yet! The cottage gives you the perfect "Up North" feeling of a log cabin nestled in the woods. The yard is beautiful - grassy and shady; the lake is beautiful, and the dock is really nice, too. I really appreciated how easy it has been to work with the owner -- just the greatest experience all the way around!

A wonderful rustic cottage with every modern convenience!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful log house is both rustic and at the same time modern. We had a great week. The view of the lake is breathtaking and the water is crystal clear with a great hard and bottom. The lawn goes right to the waters edge and the water is shallow enough for small children. My 3 year old granddaughter had a wonderful time. The accommodations are beautiful, fully stocked kitchen, tables outside, fire pit and sn old fashioned wood burning fireplace inside. This place is absolutely immaculately clean. There are four bedrooms and room for a great family vacations. This place has the best beds we have ever slept in, including our own. You won't find s nicer cabin for s family vacation than this cottage.

3 R's...rest, relax, recharge

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful. Just back from this cottage & throughly enjoyed time with family, including golden retriever. All loved it! Excellent beds, roomy kitchen, lovely screen porch. Lawn & dock are superior to others I've experienced. Everyone is so friendly. Makes it a pleasant experience. Love shopping in Petosky & eating at Duffey's outside. The Pier at Harbor Springs is a must. Can't say enough about the owners. Great to work with! Thanks for sharing your cottage:) Can't wait until next time.

Amesome vacation for our entire family!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family....The grandkids and my kids just loved it! We just cant say enough about how homey and relaxing this little getaway was. The grandkids didn't ask about cable or internet the whole time we were there! My 9 year old grand daughter caught a large mouth bass that put all the guys to shame! Right off the dock! Our memories here will be cherished, and no picture on any iPhone would be comparable to actually being there! Just an amazing time!

Hanauer Family Vacation 2014

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be exactly as presented, which is not always the case. Kitchen was stocked better than any property we have previously rented. Good cookware, plenty of dishes, spices, great appliances, and a quality grill. (That was clean). We are quite familiar with the area, so to address the virtues of Pickeral Lake would be very biased. The beds slept as well as my three month old mattress at home, with new or like new bedding. The boat dock was great for the grand kids to swim from. The public boat ramp is more than adequate for launching your boat. Everyone in our party was sad to see our time end. We will be back, I can guarantee it. Thanks Julianne, for everything.
