Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

This is not your ordinary vacation rental. If you need to be on the phone or the computer, this is not the place for you. We do provide a TV for watching movies. Twenty miles north of the Mackinaw Bridge, we are in the middle of the Hiawatha National Forest on a small inland lake. Yet we are close enough to freeway and local attractions, to return to civilization whenever the mood strikes.

The lake is a shallow lake good for kayaking,(3 kayaks are included as is a rowboat), canoeing, and fishing. We are surrounded by forest and wildlife. It is not uncommon to see wolves, bears, and on a rare occasion moose.

The lake has 3 pair of nesting loons, that fill the air with the pristine sound of nature. Great spot for birding. If you love birds you will be in paradise. Eagles, hummingbirds, pileated woodpeckers, kingfishers, warblers, more types of water fowl than I can list here.

North Country Trail traverses the area and is excellent for hiking. ATV trails are also near by. If you enjoy biking cross country, you will love it here.

Lake Michigan Beach off US-2 is about 20 minutes away, if you want to enjoy swimming on a beautiful sandy shoreline. Tacquamenon Falls are about a hour north, as is Whitefish Point. The ferry to Mackinaw Island is a half an hour south. Sault Ste. Marie and the Soo Locks, are 45 min. northeast.

This is the place to really escape. Easy access on good roads. Very few houses on this thousand acre lake, as 75% of the shoreline is owned by the national forest.

Beautiful secluded cabin getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Only 30 minutes from St. Ignace, this cabin is wonderfully decorated. On beautiful, uncrowded East Lake. The use of the kayaks, canoe and rowboat were what drew us to this cabin. Plenty of room for 8 people. We like the new couch!! This was our second year and we plan on making it an annual trip. Did not want to leave!! Thank you, Swanson Family for sharing your wonderful cabin.

Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is just lovely. There was plenty of space and the kitchen was well stocked with serving accoutrements, pots and pans. I recommend bringing your food because it's a good 20-30 minutes to the nearest general store. The fishing was good from the shore, but even better in the row boat, just beyond the reeds. We caught many perch.

We have great memories from our stay in this little cabin in the woods.

Solitude!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED this place! Such peace and tranquility here! Beautiful location, the home is clean and is well equipped. Kayaking on the small lake was so nice, hiking right outside the door, campfires each evening...wish we could've stayed longer and hope to go back again!!!

Cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin. It was spotless when we arrived. We were surprised to have close neighbors. Luckily they were not around all week. The lake is very shallow. Had to really search for deeper waters to fish. But we had some fishing success.

Peaceful retreat, quiet, and charming

  • 5 of 5

Although the pictures are lovely, they do not tell the entire story of just how beautiful the cabin and location are. My husband and I came to hike and we did ~ we also spent alot more time at the cabin than we had planned on because it is truly a peaceful place. Our six day stay went WAY to fast! We hiked the North Country National Trail at five different locations, all within an hour or less from the cabin. One day we fished and caught enough yellow perch for dinner. We were lucky with weather & our experience with Amy was very pleasant. All the time were were at the cabin and the day on the lake we saw NO other people ~ for us it was PERFECT! THANKS Amy!

I cannot even begin to tell you how beautiful and secluded this cabin is. We had a fantastic week in the UP. The cabin is full of everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Just bring your clothes, food & fishing poles. Can't wait to come back! Thanks so much!
