Wetmore Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beauitful view of the lakes while sitting on the swing and relaxing !!!!

This cabin has lake front property with a private dock to launch boat across the beach and dock it at the cabin . Picture Rock and Casino and Indian River are 30 min away . Spend a few days taking pictures of beautiful water falls like Horse Shoe Falls they are amazing . Enjoy yourself and relax in a hammock and look at the beautiful water and birds. At night enjoy a campfire and begin the next day enjoying the U.P. Wake up enjoy a cup coffee in enclosed porch or seating on a cedar picnic table or cedar swing . I LOVE GOING TO THE CABIN BUT THE HARD PART IS LEAVING THE BEAUITFUL SCENERY !!! ENJOY MY GUESTS AND RELAX !!!

A very beautiful relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Iron Skillet Cabin for our 25th anniversary. It was a really nice cabin on a beautiful lake. We really enjoyed our time there. The only bummer is that we had to leave a day early because of a family emergency. The bed was very comfortable too, which was nice. While there we took the Pictured Rock cruise, went to marquette to ride the bike trails there and did a bit of hiking to the nearby water falls. No complaints about this cabin!

The cabin was even better then we expected, the lake was better than we expected.

The Iron Skillet was such a nice cozy cabin. Everything you need is there. Lake was bigger than we expected and very pretty.

Clean, updated, and very well decorated. Sitting by the campfire looking out over the lake.....awesome.

Nice small cabin in the wilderness.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the place mostly. It's quiet and beautify by the lake Surrounded with forests.

There is no wifi or cell phone signal which makes it more restful for the vocation for people who came from Chicago.

The only thing that I would mention is that it's a two bedrooms and one bath small little house, which is not listed accurately on home away. If most of the guests are kids, it would work. It is kind of tight for four adaults.

The iron skillet is a great place to stay. We had 4 adults 2 kids ages 4 & 9. They loved fishing off the dock. The locals are we friendly along with the housekeeper. You can't go wrong with the iron skillet!!

The cabin is just adorable! It sits right on the lake! Our 19 year old twins were out fishing and birding every morning and evening. Only 25 minutes from Munising. Quiet and serene!

Very nice! Clean and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on our vacation! Cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed. (would have liked a fan or 2) Lake was beautiful. We rented a jet ski and spent the day at the cabin. Very peaceful. Nice yard for bon fires. Pictured rocks was approx. 30 min. from cabin. Beautiful area of Michigan! We hope to be back! Thanks for sharing your cabin with us! The Cousineau's
