About the property

5 Bed 3.5 Bath Authentic Log Cabin on Small Secluded Lake

Relax and refresh with family and friends in this authentic and rustic Northern Michigan cabin rental

Getting here is part of the adventure as you wind through the pine, oak and birch forest down 6 miles of back woods roads. As you turn in the driveway, you will see the lodge coming into view. Overlooking a small lake, White Stag Lodge is located on 8+ acres - bordered by state forest with close access to miles and miles of well groomed trails for hiking, ATV's and Snowmobiles! The clear lake contains largemouth bass and bluegill, perfect for fishing - and you can usually see fish swimming and turtles sunning from the dock. We have a fishing boat and two kayaks for guest use on site.

On property you can hike to different areas around the lake and even take along a picnic to relax at Firefly Point under the large shaded pines overlooking the waters edge. Or take the trail along the state forest side to Frog Hollow to look for our resident beaver home and the frogs that come out to sing.

Our location makes it easy for day trips to all that northern Michigan has to offer. We are an hour and a half to Traverse City, Petoskey, Mackinaw City and an hour from Alpena. We are close to canoeing and tubing facilities on the Ausable River out of Mio and golfing at the beautiful Garland Resort. A trip to the small town of Lewiston includes grocery store, antique shop, ice cream and delicious dining. We are also in the heart of Amish country.

About Karen Testere

My husband and I grew up in the Detroit area, and lived in several areas - Chicago, Virginia and most recently Washington DC. We are adventurous travelers and enjoy new cultures and destinations but have our hearts in Michigan.

Karen Testere purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Karen Testere chose Lewiston

We have family that settled in Northern Michigan in the 1800s, our families are part of the history of the area - farmers, lumbermen, sheriffs and shop owners We wanted to come back to enjoy the quiet beauty of Northern Michigan. Our cabin is constructed with huge red pine logs giving it a rustic authentic cozy feel - magical.

What makes this cabin unique

We have 8 acres adjacent to state land and a small spring fed lake where we are the only house on the lake. My husband and I fell in love with the remote wooded area, a place to get away from the hustle and bustle and wander in the woods to enjoy nature. There is a sense of renewal and home. We were hooked from the first day we looked at the property.

We stayed for at the White Stag Lodge for 3 days and it was wonderful! The house is amazing, the views are beautiful and the hot tub is just tops it off. We had a great time and definitely plan on going back (hopefully next year)!
