Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and myself absolutely loved the entire set-up of your home, we couldn't believe all the things you have furnished for the people vacationing in your rental. The pictures you have on your website are beautiful, but definitely do not do your home justice- it was absolutely gorgeous and amazing!!! The views of the lake and the surrounding of trees were very beautiful and private. We definitely could not have asked for better weather during our stay. I think we need to take up a new hobby other than fishing we only caught a few nice bluegill to keep and I finally caught one nice bass on Friday. It wasn't just your lake, we took our boat to 3 other lakes nearby and had no luck at any of them. We had a wonderful time and I hated to leave the beauty of your home and outdoors. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is absolutely beautiful and was an excellent choice for our vacation. Thanks so much for letting us rent you home, we all enjoyed it!

Hardwood Cabin on Lake

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very nice and comfortable with an outstanding view of the lake. There was no problem accommodating 10 adults for our family gathering. The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking - a sight you definitely should not miss.

We did catch enough fish to have a fish fry one evening with my wife and brother-in-law each catching a nice size northern pike. Two northern pike were caught right from the dock. The remainder of the fish were pan fish.

One evening, my wife and I were going to the local store and as we crossed the causeway we saw a cow moose crossing the road just south of the lake. What an experience, our first Michigan moose sighting. There is also an abundance of deer and turkeys in the area.

I would recommend this cabin to anyone. The cabin’s hardwood floors and open architecture provide a very spacious and clean environment.

VonSeda's Hardwood Hideaw...

  • 5 of 5

VonSeda's Hardwood Hideaway is very peaceful and the cabin has everything you'd want if looking for a family vacation at a luxury location. The back yard facing the water has an awesome deck for enjoying early morning coffee and listening to the loons. We were visited each morning by several Canada Geese families feeding on the lawn near the water. You can watch the kids enjoying the water and fishing right from the top deck. We stayed three nights with our two son's and their families. The beds are very comfortable and the cabin is top notch. Our four grandchildren loved sleeping in the loft. They spent three days in the water and catching many many fish (which they released). The cabin is so large that you never feel crowded and it has many special touches that make you feel right at home. We made several trips with the canoe, paddle boat, and the row boat. Once you get to the lodge, you want to stay and enjoy the scenery spread out in front of you. Don't hesitate about this rental, it is worth every penny. The hosts are great and were very accommodating. We rent with VRBO once or twice each year all over the country and have never been disappointed. The McKinney's, Wisconsin.

This was a great place to stay. We took our atvs to ride and found plenty of places to ride. The cabin and the grounds were in excellent shape. This is a cabin that I would highly recommend.for a relaxing get away.

Wonderful Lakefront Cabin

  • 5 of 5

After driving from NW IN, we were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this lakefront log cabin. The interior was perfect with all the amenities you could want. Being mostly interested in the fall scenery and nature, we spent a lot of time driving around the western UP. We went all the way to the Porkies, but the fall colors were most spectacular near the cabin. The cabin is secluded, but worth the drive. You are near many waterfalls and beautiful small towns. The wild turkeys and deer were numerous. At night, we sat outside watching a bat sweep the balcony and looking at a star-filled sky. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer so we could enjoy the lake and boat.

Beautiful Log Cabin in the U.P. of Michigan

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at VonSeda's, the first thing we noticed was the amazing view- quite breathtaking. The cabin is set in a spot that allows you to get a wonderful view of the water from just about anywhere. This place is great- a hidden secret for sure. If you have the chance to get away you would certainly feel the same way as we did. We had never even heard of Hardwood before- but now that we know it, we'll never forget it.

The cabin is super clean, and has just about everything you can think of to make your stay comfy. The hummingbirds greeted us each day we were there. We also loved watching the numerous loons and osprey in the water catching fish! Kayaking is unbelievable here. We spent hours out on the water exploring and maneuvering between the islands. The kids loved fishing- even catching many right off of the dock. The water is nice and clear, sandy beach up close which is really nice for the kids. I can't say enough good things about VonSeda's. We will certainly be back- already planning dates for next summer. Thank you for letting us enjoy your little slice of heaven!
