About Mike & Julie Parker 7351 Penny Ln, St Helen Mi. 48656 parkerscozycabin@gmail.com

We are life time Michiganders and thoroughly enjoy the 'up north' experience. We enjoy riding our ATVs and Jeep and have taken so many trips to this area because there is just so much we love to do! We hope you will come and stay and make wonderful memories of your own.

Mike & Julie Parker 7351 Penny Ln, St Helen Mi. 48656 parkerscozycabin@gmail.com purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mike & Julie Parker 7351 Penny Ln, St Helen Mi. 48656 parkerscozycabin@gmail.com chose Northern Michigan

We have traveled to the West Branch/ Houghton Lake/ St. Helen area for years to drive our jeep and quads and to play golf. After numerous trips, we realized this area was the perfect 'up north' destination! We feel lucky to have found such a beautiful log home in such a great location.

What makes this cabin unique

After seeing the character of the log interior, along with the beautiful river rock fireplace, we were enchanted. After relaxing out on the deck and taking in the surrounding beauty, we were sold! This property has the charm of a log home with all the modern amenities that make for an exceptional experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We relaxed, enjoyed sunsets, explored nearby areas, played board games, and enjoyed cabin time.

Our family enjoyed this beautiful cabin/home. We were able to spend quality time together while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful setting.

Parker's Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

If you seek a first class property, with all the amenities you could ever want - this is the place for you. The Parker's literally treat you like family - insuring that all of your questions and concerns are addressed prior to your arrival. All that is left to do is sit back and relax and enjoy the surroundings.....and they are great! We kayaked, we fished, with made smore's at the campfire, we grilled out , we hiked, we swam, and one rainy day we went to town and shopped. Family of 10 / Stayed a week in August of 2017. This is a true five star rating. Hide the kids cell phones and get your family together and get outdoors - at Parker's Cozy Cabin.

Thank you Mike & Julie for the beautiful place you offer. We certainly would recommend Parker's Cozy Cabin it is just that Cozy and comfortable.

Thanks

Awesome place, wonderful, peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that our family (brothers and sisters plus spouses) have stayed here. We found it to be very clean and also welcoming. Mike and Julie have an awesome place and we would recommend it for anyone. If you are looking to just relax and enjoy the view this is the place to come. If you are looking to swim there isn't much of a beach and the water is somewhat weedy, but our group enjoys kayaking and boating, sitting around the campfire and sharing memories of times past. They have the place well-stocked with anything you would need for your stay. Plan on coming again next year!

Thank you Mike and Julie for a great place to relax.

Fantastic Log Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic stay at Parker's Cozy Cabin. The home is a very clean and beautiful log home with many, many unique log cabin and "up north" inspired decorations. It overlooks East Twin Lake, which is a small quiet shallow lake. There were a few pontoon boats, but for the most part it was pleasant and calm with a small beach in front of the cabin. There is also a larger lake, West Twin Lake, less than 1/2 mile away that had a small, but nice beach area and a place where we could launch our jet ski.

The home has very large decks with one that is covered and facing the lake. We spent many hours on that deck due to it raining several days during our vacation.

I would have to say that the only down side is the internet access. It is really just WAY too slow to be of any use. The good side to that is that it forced a couple of us to unplug for a few days! (We were able to "hotspot" our phones to connect for those urgent work issues that came up.)

The home is also situated not far from ORV trails and you can ride right from the cabin. St. Helen has an extensive trail system and is ORV friendly, allowing ORVs to ride into town (if you follow their rules)

Except for a few rainy days, we had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to stay here again! Thank you for the use of this beautiful Cozy Cabin!!!
