Northern Michigan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

Lakefront Log Cabin located on Pickerel Lake. One bedroom cabin (queen bed) with a sleeping loft upstairs(3 twin beds). Authenic log cabin that has been extensively remodeled and updated. The entire interior is log and knotty pine with beautiful fieldstone fireplace. Fully equipped kitchen and bathroom have recently been updated. The crystal clear lake water with sandy bottom in front of our cabin is shallow, with hard packed sand bottom with a gentle slope(no-drop off). Perfect for swimming and wading.

Beach, picnic table, campfire pit, and eighty foot dock included. Boat rentals available from local marinas, on the waterway, or bring your own boat and launch from the near by public launch. Excellent swimming, fishing(bass, walleye, pike), and boating on 1100 acre Pickerel Lake. Part of the famous inland waterway which connects to Crooked Lake, Burt Lake and Mullet Lake.

Located just a few miles east of downtown Petoskey and only minutes away from all the other varied attractions in this beautiful area of northwest Michigan. The Petoskey/Harbor Springs area includes miles of bike and rollerblade trails, exceptional golf, and several of the States most beautiful beaches.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed at this cabin for a long weekend. As soon as we walked in the cabin it felt like home. The cabin is even more beautiful in person! The stone fireplace is stunning. The half-log steps leading up to the loft were beautifully constructed. The decor had the "up north" look and was very comfortable. We spent some time in Petosky for lunch, wine tastings and beer tastings. However, most of our time was spent at the cabin. Every night we sat for hours in the adirondack chairs just looking out at the lake and enjoyed gorgeous sunsets. We both were very relaxed after our long weekend away. Neither of us wanted to leave the cabin, we could have stayed much longer. We would highly recommend this rental. The owners were a pleasure to work with.

Love this cottage

  • 5 of 5

This year will be our fifth year staying at this cabin. My husband spent his summers on Pickerel Lake and since we live near Pittsburgh, he wanted to take our kids back there to experience it. We found this cabin and have been nothing but pleased with it! We spend every morning drinking our coffee on the dock and then we spend every evening around the fire. My husband and son regularly catch enough fish for our annual "last night fish fry".

The cabin is very clean and very well maintained with enough space for my husband, two teenage children, my mother-in-law and myself. My son loves the proximity to the store and my daughter loves spending the day in a raft reading.

We couldn't be happier with our choice and know you'll love it too!
