Pet friendly !! This beautiful cabin is on lake and dock bring your boat sleeps 7 and a nice bathroom with a shower . History about this cabin now called Iron Skillet Back in the 1850s the men would travel Up North Michigan to work in the forest logging and worked long hours then go back to eat and sleep at the cabin . There was no bathroom just a out house on the property and the house was called a skid home that could be moved it needed depending where the next logging job was. Since then there is a bathroom and two bedrooms and some updates but, the original part of the skid home is the kitchen and living room. I decide to name this place the Iron Skillet to bring back history with some Antiques along with it . Its nicely decorated with oil lamps ,wooden bowls that where made in a factory in Musing Mi. near the cabin that close down many years ago. The bathroom is decorated in the out house theme . My Guest that stay here use Iron Skillets and I believe the food taste better!!! Welcome my Guest to the Iron Skillet cabin on the Lake looking forward to your stay !!! The Iron Skillet is located in Wetmore Mi. and its in the Hiawatha Forest and is on lake front property with a private dock to launch a boat just across the beach and dock it at the cabin Great fishing and connected to 5 lakes .Picture Rock and Miners Beach is 30 min away from the cabin. The cabin has all dishes and Iron Skillets to cook with and lines . Guest just bring a beach towel . 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.

Alll was perfect. Couldn't have asked for more
Enjoyed our time at the cabin and in Munising. It was more than we had hoped for. Too much to do and see will have to go again. Jacqueline was awesome! Thanks for a wonderful time.
Thank you for staying at my Lake Rentals at The Iron Skillet. The pictures are beautiful and happy that both of you and Brody your lab had a great time. Looking forward to your stay again . Lake Rentals Jacqueline
it was awesome!!!!! peaceful and quiet. something we really needed
Cute Cabin in the woods
Our family stayed at the Iron Skillet Cabin a few weeks ago. We had a great time. The cabin had most everything that we needed to get by for 5 days. We rented a kayak and paddle board to use on the lake. Our kids enjoyed that! We also liked to just unplug for a few days, and spend time with our family, and make memories. We loved the boat tour of Pictured Rocks!
great lake property!
My family and I had a very nice time at the Iron Skillet Cabin this past weekend. We arrived Thursday and left Sunday. My only complaint, I wish we had more time! The cabin is small, but who needs a lot of space when you have the beautiful lakefront yard. The neighbors were very friendly. Overall the lake was pretty quiet and peaceful, even on Saturday and Sunday. Being on the end of the chain of lakes, there is not much boat traffic. Cell phone service is very limited, which we were fine with because it forced us to become unplugged for the majority of the weekend. Our services were US cellular, with very spotty service, and Sprint got no service. The owner did forewarn us about this, so we were prepared.
The cabin is about 30 minutes from Munising, which is a very nice small town. I would recommend doing the Pictured Rocks Tour, but dress warmly! There is a grocery store right in town that you can get anything you need.
We loved our stay, and look forward to coming again in the future!
Thank you for staying at the Iron Skillet cabin. I hope you can visit my other lake rental in Brooklyn Mi on Vineyard lake called Grape Escape. Enjoy your Summer ! Lake Rentals Jacqueline
It is a very nice cabin right on the lake inside Hiawatha forest
We were a family of 4. Did go to Marquette, pictured rocks & shipwreck at Munising, Soo locks, Taquamenon falls, Oswald bear ranch and just driving in the unpaved roads. Cabin has everything to cook, nice sitting area to eat breakfast, two bedrooms and a living area where we used to play poker after dinner. If you are used to live in big house then bedrooms will look small. We used the living room sofa beds. It has a nice campfire pit. Violet was nice to bring us coal, papers and starter fluid. There are two grocery stores 1 and 5 miles distance. Bring mosquito and insect repellents. If you have small kids bring emergency kit and regular medicine for fever, bandaids etc. Fishing from thr dock is quite fun here. Will be good if internet service via satellite is provided. Phones won't work in the cabin. Had to visit grocery store for wifi each day.
Thank you for staying at the Iron Skillet . I am happy you enjoyed your stay . I know Verizon service works now hopefully other carriers will put towers in the UP. I look forward to your stay at my other lake rental Grape Escape and yes there is WiFi there. Have a great Summer ! Lake Rentals Jacqueline
