About Mike & Julie Parker
We are lifetime 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 purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Mike & Julie Parker chose St Helen
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 an ideal 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.

Our entire family enjoyed this peaceful setting, with lots to do-swimming, fishing, kayaking.
Such an enjoyable stay in this beautiful home. Great fishing and kayaking around a lake that is not overused, which was fantastic! This was our second stay here and our grandkids enjoyed it even more this time. Owners are responsive to each inquiry, very quickly and it was nice to get to meet them this time. Hope to be back!
Words can’t express the beauty of this cabin and location! We had a wonderful time!
Coziest Cabin Ever
All communication was professional and helpful. This cabin was exactly as described. All our needs were meet. We felt we could call the home owner any time with any question. First time renting someone’s home and we found it to be a wonderful experience!!
Heaven in St. Helen
Everything was Wonderful as usual. My whole Family had the Best Of Times !!!
What incredible hosts!
A beautiful cabin! Ever detail you can imagine has been thought through. There were signs, photos, books and instructions covering any need we may have while staying. The only question we had was how to turn on the generator after a big storm shut the power off. That in itself took only minutes to fix. What could have been a desaster was mearly a hickup because of the preparation Mike has done. Amazing how much has been thought through.
Wonderful family vacation
We just spent a wonderful week at Parker’s Cozy Cabin for a multigenerational family vacation! The Parkers have put so much thought and care into their beautiful log cabin, From the sweet homey decor to the overall set up of the property. This is definitely a cottage meant for families to enjoy. My favorite things are—The spaciousness, the sweet notes with friendly information/reminders, the safety details (baby gates, lights on steps), the 3 bathrooms on each floor, the kayak rides around the lake, the large covered deck, the peaceful atmosphere...so many more reasons but too many to list! You will love this place!
West Branch features shopping, dining, theater, Outlet Mall, golfing and antiquing. West Branch also hosts the Modern Craft Winery tasting room, which is one of the stops on The Sunrise Side Wine & Hops Trail. West Branch hosts the SPRING ART AND WINE WALK in May and the VICTORIAN ART FAIR in August.
Houghton Lake has fun for the entire family! There are amusement parks that have rides, water, putt-putt golf, go-carts, batting cages and more. Crafters will enjoy Arnie's Arts 'N' Craft store with its huge selection of supplies. Houghton Lake is home to Michigan's largest outdoor winter festival, Tip Up Town USA. It is held every year on two weekends in January. The crowds are large so spend your time with us in the luxury of a modern cabin and drive in, as we are only 20 minutes away.
