About Kurt Kras
We Fell in love with Stony Lake the first time we set eyes on the area. A cousin sold us her cabin on this beautiful property and it fell into disrepair after years of entertainment and enjoyment. Realizing we had decision to make of rehabbing or complete new structure, we choose the latter as we quickly understood that this area is the gem of the midwest. After starting a family, we could not come up to the area as often as we could living 4 hours away. Renting and donating to family and friends throughout the years we decided to rent to qualified families to enjoy this slice of heaven. Our memories will last a lifetime with all of the activities and enjoyment this area offers.
Kurt Kras purchased this Cabin in 1996

What makes this Cabin unique
A 3 minute walk to the stony store for ice cream or cottage cafe for pizza. Also a short walk to the Lazy River where we enjoy an incredible 40 minute floating journey on a raft from Stony Lake to Lake Michigan beach. The free flowing nature ride is easy, relaxing and enjoyable for all ages from 3 years to 93 years old. Having the easy access to a playground close by and a park is convenient but we always loved the walk to the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan.

We truly appreciate the opportunity to host you and your family. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back next time you are in the area
Fall Get Away
Loved our fall get away at Stony Lake. Everything was as the pictures depict, if not nicer! The kitchen was very nice and well equipped. Used the fireplace nearly every evening. Thanks for having dry kindling and logs in the house for our use, especially because we happened to be there during a wet spell. We used to vacation in this area as family owned property there so it was nice to get back and visit some of our favorite places. We will rent this property again!
The Cabin at Stony Lake!
I grew up going to Stony Lake every summer, so I was excited when I found a property at Stony Lake. So excited that I didn't read the description very carefully. It is not on the lake nor did it have a view of the lake, but the place was very suitable. It had a complete kitchen and everything you need for a long term stay. We were there for five weeks. Be sure to look at the pictures provided; I was surprised by the spiral staircase. The owner corrected any problems we had immediately. He was very concerned that we enjoy out stay. Be sure you take a pair of sweats. I think that this past summer was unusably cold and rainy. We could still sit by the shore and read which was like heaven to me. I highly recommend The Pizza Factory in Shelby and the Open Harvest outside of Shelby (going towards Silver Lake.) I think the Pizza Factory has some of the best pizza I have ever had.
The Cabin is pretty centrally located and we went out every day except for the one day of rain. I would sign up for next year, but we have to go see our family in the East.
One other thing...I don't think there is any heat in the cabin. I tried to use the air conditioner once, but not again because it didn't do a terrific job and I thought it might be very expensive. We could have built a fire in the fireplace and we didn't trust our fire building skills.
Kurt was so easy to communicate with! We had a wonderful weekend! Nice and wooded lot that is well cared for. Cute cottage that is clean and comfortable. We came for the Cherry Point Fish boil and to canoe down the river. If you stay here you must make reservations at the Cherry Point fish boil it's a 10 minute drive and the food was amazing! We also had plans to canoe down the river.. We ended up floating on tubes down the river which was nice. It took about 2 hours, which with little children was just a little too long. I wish we would have canoed, but I was unable to find 2 canoes as Kurt's was stolen. There was a maintenance guy there Keith who was staying above the garage. He was super helpful and helped us get the floats back from the beach. Overall a wonderful stay. The only thing I would mention is that the spiral staircase wasn't my favorite with my small kids around. I would stay there again!
Thank you very much for the review, I truly appreciate the opportunity to host your family. The cherry point market is always a great choice for our guests and they appreciate the kind words as well. Typically the lazy river is about an hour but this year the current was a little slow. Thanks again and hopefully we will have the opportunity to host your family again.
Great experience !
Cabin was clean and Nicely decorated. Location was great, close to or short drive the best beaches in Michigan and areas attractions. Loved the lazy river, owner let us use tubes and rafts, fun for all ages.
