Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 8-9

The Wild Winds is a nature lover’s paradise. We offer many trails for hiking and/or biking. Enjoy fishing, boating and relaxing on the lake and beach, just steps from your rustic cabin. Or spend time at our private pond (actually a small lake) nestled in the woods, where we have installed a dock for deep water swimming and canoeing. Or for a little more excitement the Wild Winds is only 7-8 Miles from world class golfing, shopping, restaurants and other sporting lakes. If you like to take short day trips you could go to Petoskey to see beautiful Lake Michigan, or spend your day at Mackinac Island.

We allow well-behaved dogs for a small fee, and also charge a $60 cleaning fee.

This log home, "Honeymoon Cabin," has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8-9 people.

Or consider our other vacation rental at the Wild Winds: "Junior Cabin" has 3 bedrooms (plus fold-out queen) sleeps 10-12, and it has a fireplace! (see homeaway #368462ha).

The log homes are right on Wequas Lake, and our beautiful private lake is just a short walk into the woods.

Both homes come equipped with satellite TV, washer, dryer, full kitchen and 1 bath. The price is the same for either log home: the basic rate is $620/wk or $120/night, and prime dates are $750/wk or $145/night.

Classic "UP NORTH" Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This is everything we remembered about vacationing in the upper Lower Penninsula! The Wild Winds is a log home nestled in the woods with a lovely view of the lake. There was plenty of space for our group of 6 adults, even our technically savvy 10 year old was pleased with the accommodation. The house is rustic, but still had satellite TV. We look forward to staying again.

Family Getaway with the dogs

  • 5 of 5

Rokko was very accommodating and wonderful. The cabin has 4 bedrooms that are comfy, the cabin is older but nice & clean. Its perfect for anyone wanting to hike, fish, or relax. There are private lakes were you can take the paddle boat, row boat, or canoe out to relax or fish for northern pike. Their are nature trails that are well maintained on and off the property with areas for children and pets to run around.

Rokko is pet friendly and allowed us to bring our dogs along with kennels. They got to swim, play, and chase squirrels with no issues with brush and ticks. I did not see any bugs or ticks at all!

You are at a great location, 5 minute drive from downtown Gaylord but still isolated from it all. If it is rainy, you have cable TV and board games. I had such a great time and I would highly recommend this cabin for the location, price, and child & dog friendly!

Wild Winds is a lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at Wild Winds. Our host was very kind, the property was extensive and beautiful. We liked the log homes, and thought that it was more than enough for our needs. We would recommend this retreat for anyone looking for a peaceful spot to relax and enjoy nature. Wild Woods makes me think of Emmerson and we hope to return soon. Thank you Rokko for your generosity and kindness.

Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We were up in Gaylord for a funeral so we didn't use everything offered at the cabin, but it had plenty of room, comfortable beds, and it was very clean. It had everything you would need away from home and the owner is very helpful with making sure you have what you need and making sure you know how to get there.

We enjoyed our stay very much!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful area set back in the woods with cabins right on the water. Upon arrival Roko gave us a tour of the cabin/property & shared some history about it :) we enjoyed our surroundings & just enjoyed how peaceful & quiet it was. We enjoyed walking the trails on the property.
