Why Aaron chose Detroit
We fell in love with Detroit Lake in college. It was always the first camping trip of the year. 20 years later, married with children, we decided it's much more comfortable to enjoy the Lake's ammenities in a cabin! Our first 'cabin' was more of a house, so we were really excited when this cabin came on the market. We've always wanted a cabinesque cabin with all the comforts of home and this house is perfect. We love it!
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is at the end of a dead end street with only one real neighbor. This means that there's little to no traffic. You're free to enjoy the closeness to town AND a bit of privacy. Our favorite part of the cabin is having a bunch of friends up (we own the adjacent cabin as well & there are multiple tent locations), cooking a big dinner, and enjoying it at the outdoor picnic table & around the large firepit. Then hours of letting the kids play outside while we converse at the fire. There's also plenty of board games, 100's of movies and a mini foosball/pool/ping pong table to keep the kids occupied. It's camping with the luxury of a fully stocked house. Really, we throw in perishables, a change of clothes and go.
Sports & Adventure Activities
You description included a lake view-There was only a dry mud pit
The property description included lake views. What it fails to mention is that the lake is drained approximately 6 months of the year. The cabin had the necessary features and a decent sized hot water heater. The services available in Detroit are minimal, with no decent restaurant even close. You have to go outside to access the laundry area.
Beautiful location. Well kept
Host very easy to get hold of. It is beautiful and well kept. Despite a bad storm day before, it was easy to access the driveway and park. Close to everything but quiet.
Fun place to stay with several different areas to hang out in.
We enjoyed the cabin decor and feel. Kitchen had everything we needed. The layout was great, we had three good areas to sit and chat, play games and eat together in.
great place to stay
The cabin came with everything we needed. Nicely stocked kitchen. And the beds were very comfortable.
Since it is at the end of the road the setting is so pretty. There is plenty of parking and the view was lovely. Since it was winter we didn't use the outdoor cooking area but I can see where that would be very nice in good weather.
Just what we needed!
Wonderful quiet peaceful place surrounded with cool antiques. Amazing!
The cabin was awesome, the decor made the experience even more memorable. Lots of room for the family plenty of beds!! We walked to the lake several times, we found spots to swim, fish, crawdad everything. Cool little grocery store too. Close to all the cool waterfalls. Definitely going back
