Rapid River, Michigan

Are you in need of a relaxing getaway far from the stresses of everyday life? If so, there's no better destination than this spectacular Rapid River vacation rental cabin, ideally situated on 160 private acres. Surrounded by wildlife and spectacular natural beauty and offering endless opportunities for water activities on the property's 2-acre pond, this house provides everything necessary for a once-in-a-lifetime experience!


With 2 bedrooms plus a loft, 2 bathrooms, and enough accommodations to comfortably sleep 8 guests, this house will serve as the ultimate retreat setting for a family or group of close friends traveling together. A mile-long driveway leads up to the house, ensuring complete seclusion and leaving you surrounded by nothing but nature and wildlife. You'll love this log cabin's welcoming interior, featuring gorgeous hardwood floors and tongue-and-groove cedar ceilings, which perfectly capture the cozy, rustic ambiance of the area. After an eventful day in the great outdoors, prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the full kitchen, equipped with all the necessary appliances and cooking accessories. Later, unwind outside on the expansive deck with your beverage of choice and take in the breathtaking views of the pond and surrounding foliage. If you find yourself indoors, spend your downtime watching a DVD or satellite TV in the open living room. On warm clear nights, toast s'mores around the fire pit below a blanket of twinkling stars.


When you stay at this bucolic vacation rental cabin, you'll have a plethora of outdoor activities right at your fingertips! With your own 2-acre pond on the premises, it's likely you'll want to spend a ton of time on the water. Enjoy paddle boating, rafting, sunbathing on the dock, or riding down a slide that empties right into the water! A wide variety of fish swim in this pond, including bluegill, bass and trout, providing you with great catch-and-release fishing. The fishermen in your group can find additional fishing opportunities within 9 miles of the cabin at Little and Big Bay De Noc in Lake Michigan.

If you'd prefer a day on dry land, further explore the property on gorgeous hiking and 4-wheeling trails. Hiawatha National Forest, located adjacent to the cabin, offers trails that wind by picturesque rivers, waterfalls, and 3 Great Lakes. Dense in National Parks, the surrounding area boasts unparalleled sights and fascinating wildlife - make sure to visit Tahquamenon Falls, Isle Royale, and Big Spring Manistique!

Modern comforts in a beautiful UP wooded cabin setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and very clean. We had 6 family members stay at the cabin and everyone had plenty of space. Also, lots of open grass space for kids to play yard games. It is a great place to get away and relax comfortably with nature.

Our cabin was fantastic! It was clean and had everything we needed! We love the outdoors and the property was great for enjoying it! We loved the privacy! We visited Munising and Marquette and Escanaba and Garden from this cabin! It worked out great for that as well!

An unexpected treasure.

  • 5 of 5

Having visited many traditional UP camps I was pleasantly surprised by this home away from home. The location is far enough off the beaten path for true privacy yet is centrally located for day trips to Escanaba, Gladstone, Marquette and Munising. Don't be fooled by the 2 bedrooms as the home is big enough for a large family. Watching the sun rise over the pond while enjoying morning coffee is an amazing way of starting each day. I am looking forward to getting back.

Great Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my favorite place to get away to. If you are looking for an opportunity to experience the best Michigan's Upper Peninsula has to offer, a stay at this cabin is hard to beat. The sunrise over the forest, morning mist rising off the pond, tranquility of the property (it is rare to hear anything other than wildlife while staying here), trails through the woods to explore and a modern cabin to retreat to are just a few of the reasons my annual stay is a highlight of my year. Highly recommended!

The place is amazing! The view from the cabin is stunning which at times, includes wildlife that is very close! When we showed up, the place was extremely clean and had everything we needed which was awesome. As others have mentioned, the well marked trails are a great feature. It provided us some safe exploring options to see the unique aspect of the property. Can't wait to go back.
