About Lynette Drumhiller

We are a family of 6 from Mid-Michigan and love a variety of activities and the great outdoors.

Lynette Drumhiller purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Lynette Drumhiller chose Northern Michigan

The natural beauty, and wildlife on the property were an extra draw. The perfect location to enjoy the Great Lakes!!

Unique boutiques, art galleries and a variety of restaurants are located in Petoskey's Gas Light District, or nearby Bay Harbor, and Harbor Springs.

There is something to do for every sport enthusiast or lover of nature. And it's a perfect location for those seeking rest and relaxation too.

What makes this cabin unique

Relax on the deck and read a book, or watch your favorite movie from one of several tv's. Play Board games or do arts and crafts in the sunroom.

Explore the woods and pick Morels in the spring, or visit a local farm during Harvest. Spend the day at Mackinac Island, or head off to one of two area water parks. Frequent the many local art fairs and festivals.

Enjoy the paddle boat or fish from the end of the dock. The choice is yours.

Secluded beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better up north experience. The opportunities via the inland waterways, the views, the seclusion and absence of traffic were wonderful! The bed we slept in was very comfortable and all the guests complimented their sleep as well. The stove worked great and what charm! Even though it was a short stay it was a just right. The deck, the dock, the firepit all came into play for us. The pullout sofa's also were great. Thanks!

Very Clean and Private

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and updated with a rustic cabin decor. There is a lot of space and seating on the deck outside and down by the lake too. The setting is very private at the end of the road and you can barely see the only neighbor...not typical for a lakefront home. We rented a pontoon boat from the nearby marina which ended up being great for cruising between Pickerel and crooked Lake. Crooked Lake has an awesome shallow sand bar to anchor and swim off the boat. Having the paddleboat and kayak was a plus and the water around the cabin was always very calm as it is tucked away with surrounding trees. The owners have really thought of most everything to make for a relaxing stay. Would definitely recommend the cozy cabin.

Great layout, location, and amenities

  • 4 of 5

It's hard to find a place that is big enough to allow our family to spread out, that's in a highly desirable area, that allows us to bring our dog instead of boarding her for a week, and that has amenities to keep everyone happy. But this is the place! Situated at the end of a dead-end street, surrounded by trees and vegetation, the cabin (house, really) is semi-secluded and very peaceful. We enjoyed the beachside firepit, the shallow lake for swimming, boating, and fishing, the wooden swing for lazy days of reading, the ping pong table, the big deck with grill, and the proximity to Petoskey for dining, shopping, and entertainment options. The house itself is warm and welcoming, and includes many extras, like paperbacks and toys for the kids. The bonus: the owner is very open and easy to work with. We're definitely looking forward to going back!

Perfect Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 2 small children spent the worst weather week of summer in the best place. If you have to be stuck inside because of cold rainy weather, this is the place to be. It is so well equipped for adults and children, tv's, games, books. The small children did not even touch the toys we brought along. This place really is cozy and feels like your own home. We loved it! The deck and dock and firepit were favorites when it actually stopped raining. The rain also gave us an excuse to visit the nearby casino probably more than we should have.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your vacation, despite the bad weather. I've always felt the Cozy Cabin is the best place to curl up with a good book, play family games, or catch up on one of the many movies we missed at the theater. Even though most people favor summer and the lake activities, I especially like the fall and winter, with the Fireplace roaring and autumn leaves or snowflakes falling. 😊

Great family time

  • 5 of 5

Great location for sightseeing and shopping in Petoskey. The cozy cabin was a perfect match for our family of 9. Pickerel Lake is a great small lake perfect for fishing, boating and tubing. The public beach was great for swimming and relaxing on floats. We enjoyed the fire pit and large deck for our nightly s'mores! The paddle boat was a huge hit.
