About the property

2-3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 8-12

The Wild Winds is a winter wonderland! Snowmobile trails start at the top of our driveway (we have room to park snowmobile trailers). Cross-country ski on our private trails, or visit groomed county trails only a couple of miles away. Ski downhill courses such as Treetops or Boyne Mountain, each only about half an hour away. Or simply enjoy the pristine beauty of our acres of pine forest in their winter frosting!

We allow well-behaved dogs for a small fee, and also charge a $60 cleaning fee. There is wi-fi available.

This log home, "Junior" cabin, has 2 bedrooms (plus fold-out queen) sleeps 6-8, and it has a fireplace! When it's not too cold, the back bedroom with two full beds is also available.

Or consider our other vacation rental at the Wild Winds: ""Honeymoon Cabin," has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8-9 people. (see homeaway #298533).

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.

Terrific cross country Ski Weekend Gettaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay here. The cabin was extremely comfortable for our two families (four adults, two four year olds, two one year olds and two dogs). The kids played in forest and the adults explored the ski trails. There is a short loop that you can pick up by basically walking out the front door of the cabin and several miles of trail within a two minute drive. The cabin has a very cozy fireplace. The Jans family was accomodating, fleixble and very nice. We plan on coming back next winter and think this would be a terrific spot on a fall weekend.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had such a terrific time here at the Wild Winds. Kids and (well-behaved) dogs are always welcome, and so are cross-country skiers! Though our location is great for snowmobilers (trails start at the top of the driveway, and there is room to park trailers), it is just as wonderful for cross-country enthusiasts. We put in a half-mile loop through our woods this winter, and miles of county-groomed Pine Baron trails are 5 minutes away. And don't forget that Boyne Mountain and Treetops ski resorts are both within 20 miles of us, and offer downhill, cross-country and other winter activities. And some folks just like to cozy up in front of the Junior cabin fireplace! (I'll supply the wood.)

Rustic, had all the amenities we needed.

  • 5 of 5

For the price and space it had, we will go back again! We had 6 people, didn't have to use the back bedroom. Had enough hot water, used the fireplace, & snowmobile trail was easy to get to. Rokko was great!

Loved the property but the house had extra unwanted guests.

  • 1 of 5

The property is beautiful and the house could have been accommodating though I think the beds need new mattresses and the living room needed more comfortable with furniture that wasn't worn out. But the biggest horror was that there were squirrels living in the attic and either those squirrels or mice (or both) were making there way into the house during the day while we were gone. I told the owner after the first night about the animals in the attic and then later about the animals getting by in during the day. His response was mildly apologetic and the excuse that that is what happens when a house is in the woods with leaving a couple mousetraps in the kitchen. After re-reading reviews from back in September where guests stated squirrels had gotten in and the owner blamed the guests for leaving the door open, I should have been warned.
