Super clean cabin with great view and perfect swimming!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very clean, cute, and comfortable and stocked with everything you need for your stay. Really, really loved the fire pit with the view overlooking the lake! Very beautiful and relaxing to watch the wildlife in the morning/evening. This location is perfect for swimming....shallow, warm water that gradually gets deeper with no weeds! My husband used the row boat for fishing and even caught a rock bass just fishing off the dock. It is a 15-20 minute drive to the nearest store, etc, which some people may not like, but being away from the busyness of town is considered a plus for us when on vacation. Many houses nearby sell fire wood, which was all we needed after we got groceries the first day.

I really would like to rate this 4.5 but that's not an option. The only thing that prevented me from giving it a 5 is that there is not a table outside to eat (or play cards or whatever), which we really missed. Next time we would bring our fold-up picnic table along.

Overall this is a fantastic place for a fun, quiet, and relaxing vacation! Highly recommend it!

Great peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Wickwood Cottage was a great peaceful place for our family of four. Our stay was a little non traditional as we needed to stay on the lake for a number of weeks. Our two boys found plenty to do between the outdoors, wildlife, tv internet, and games inside the house. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway in northern Michigan!
