About Brian & Lori Aeschliman

Brian and Lori Aeschliman are the owners of this beautiful cabin. Brian is a machinist by trade and an avid builder. We started this cabin project 7 years ago by taking this cabin apart near our home in Ohio and sanding every log and putting it back together again at the Sand Dunes, one of our family's favorite vacation spots. With the help of other dune friends and family we've built this cabin..It has been an adventure and has turned out really awesome, We always have a week that the friends that helped put this up are invited to come and enjoy it with us. There has been a lot of fun and many friendships started up north. The boys love to drive their latest creation that they've made on the dunes Like trophy trucks, dune buggies Jeeps etc. And the girls love to go out to the beach and catch the rays.We feel blessed that we've had the opportunity to work and play together on this project.

Brian & Lori Aeschliman purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Brian & Lori Aeschliman chose Mears

This was the perfect spot for us Since there is a lot of action close to us but yet we can get away from it all in just 1 short mile.

What makes this cabin unique

Seclusion if you want and a lot of action not far away.

This place was outstanding. The property and cabin are beautiful. We will definitely be coming back next year. So private yet so close to the dunes and lake!! The cabin was very clean and had all cooking utensils ready for use. We felt very welcome to be there. Thank you Brian and Lori!

Perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our grown children & young children. The 3 floors were perfect .. one for each family. Not sure how the no tv would go over but it was a nice added touch to disconnect and be peaceful.

Cabin was very clean and much appreciated as I am a fussy one when renting. woukd just recommend the cleaning gal get the corners of the bedroom around night stand once in a while.. few extra cobwebs. A few lower watt light bulbs in bedroom for evening reading would be a plus.

But overall wonderful would stay again! and again!

Perfect, amazing, comfortable, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

A group of my friends and I went to Silver Lake Michigan last week and had a BLAST! The dunes were awesome, but the cabin made it by far the greatest! It was relaxing, peaceful, and all in all a wonderful place!! It had everything and some! The beds we MORE THAN comfortable! The hammock was a hit. We made meals every breakfast, lunch and dinner! Some over the campfire and some indoors!! It doesn't have service, but it made us put our phones down and have good talks, play games and get to know each other more! The owners were so nice and helpful in every situation. The cabin is like 2 miles from the beach, which made it so nice! We were inches from everyone else, but still had our personal space! LOVED IT AND HAVE NO COMPLAINS!! There is no AC, but it didn't bother us at all!

Great cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cabin,.When we travel we come with a lot of people. I love that we can cook a big meal and then sit down and play cards with the kids or head out in the dark to a bonfire to make s'mores!

We traveled in a large R.V. While pulling a trailer for all of our toys for the sand dunes, the only problem was turning around. There are a lot of trees so turning around wasn't an option but for a truck and trailer it would be fine.

Bottom line is we'd love to come up and stay in the cabin again. Thanks Lori and Brian.
