About Cecilia

My name is Cecilia and I have lived in the Hubbard Lake area for over 30 years. I love to come relax at the lake with my family and allow others to share in that experience at an affordable and comfortable cabin location.

Why Cecilia chose Michigan

My family purchased this cottage so that we would have a cool place to get away from after working at our 300 acre hobby farm. We weren't looking for a condo, but something rustic and lasting that could sustain kids, grandkids and grandparents through the years.

What makes this cottage unique

What's unique about the Hubbard Lake Haven is two-fold: its ability to host large groups and its amazing beachfront. Many cabins on the lake (or any lake, for that matter) often have a rocky beach, or a steep, difficult to get to beachfront. Not here. We have a beautiful sandy beach, that you can see and walk to right from the yard (yes, there ARE zebra mussels in the lake for those who are not familiar with northern Michigan lakes). The 150' wide yard and beachfront also makes it easy to accommodate large get togethers, and the tree canopy overheard and along the property offer privacy. Expectation Management: If you are looking for a pristine home, check out Churchille Point Inn (http://www.churchillpointeinn.com/), a hotel or some other very nice homes on vrbo. If you understand that this is a cottage and operates as is, then you will be able to enjoy a fantastic waterfront that is quiet and great for families!

Beautiful cottage-beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great weekend on Hubbard Lake! When I walked in I was blown away by how open and clean everything was with a beautiful view of the lake from the house. We were able to spread out with plenty of room.

My favorite part was waking up to the sound of the water and taking a swim in the lake! My whole family had a wonderful time and I would recommend you give this place a look, can't wait to come back next year !

Fantastic Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time. Had this rustic feel basic clean and pleasant. This experience was made easy by the property manager who helped us with every detail and question we had. My family loved the easy access to the beach and the nice clean clear water. Big fire pitt with plenty of yard space for the kids to run around and play while us parents got to lounge around or watch from the great views of the house. The owner stopped by and greated us and made us feel welcome asking if we were missing anything. Will definitely be coming back next summer.

Relaxing beach, cozy cottage and perfect weather

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved the beach and clear waters. We had a blast tubing and playing in the water with family and friends. The beach has so much space to play frisbee with a big group or relax under the shade tree and read a book. The kitchen was large enough to prepare for our family's big meals every night and sit down as a group to eat inside or out. The location of this cottage can't be beat! The landlord made sure the cottage met our needs and was clean and tidy when we arrived. I will be back again, for sure!

Memorable week with friends at an adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

AWESOME !! My guests and I arrived with no idea what to expect. Upon arrival we found a modest looking cottage on the outside situated on a large lakefront lot with sandy beach. Upon entering the cottage we were all blown away. Simply a beautiful spacious interior. Very clean with all the amenities of home. Price was right and we all enjoyed our week we spent there. Can't wait till next year !!! ps the owner was adorable !!

Hubbard Lake is one of the cleanest spring fed lakes in Michigan. The state record for largest smallmouth bass was also just recorded here on Oct 20, 2015! Spanning over 8,500 acres in size and surrounded by beautiful forest, it offers many recreational possibilities regardless of the season. Swimming, skiing, tubing, fishing, kayaking, sailing, and just plain relaxing are great activities for the summertime heat. Majestic fall colors make for the most beautiful photography, while the wintertime ice lends itself to some of the best ice fishing "cold" spots. Nearby Alpena (20 mi) boasts NOAA (http://thunderbay.noaa.gov/), with historical and real life displays of the area's famous shipwreck and diving history, as well as a cute downtown with an ice cream shop, fountain, two movie theaters, salons, saloons and the Thunder Bay Theater (http://www.thunderbaytheatre.com/).

Other Activities: Kayaking, Canoeing
