Northern Michigan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps a family of 6)

The Cabin in the Woods is a quiet, chalet-style cabin nestled in the middle of Northern Michigan's forests. The cabin provides you with a home base from which you can explore the many sights of the Northern Lower and Upper Peninsula. It is located approximately 20 miles north of Petoskey and 25 miles southwest of Mackinaw City. The cabin sleeps four adults comfortably along with two children in the loft and has one-and-a-half baths and features a large hot tub and gas fireplace as well as an outdoor firepit.

The cabin is ideal for winter getaways. Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands are 15 miles away and some of the best groomed snowmobile trails are less than a mile away with easy access from the cabin. Cross-country skiing and sledding are available right out the front door.

Summertime at the cabin is full of activities as well. Sturgeon Bay is ten minutes away; shopping in Mackinaw, Petoskey and Harbor Springs are all less than 30 minutes away. Golf courses abound near the cabin; there are several within 30 minutes of the cabin.

Satellite Television now installed at the Cabin

The cabin is a non-smoking rental.

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for three nights. It was just perfect! We wanted a place in the woods so we could experience the beautiful fall colors. This was the right place! When we arrived everything was ready and waiting for us, warm and welcoming. We didn't have any issues so we never had to contact the owner, though it would have been easy if we needed to. We will definitely be coming back to stay here over the winter, it'll be perfect for the ski season. We loved the hot tub and the views out the living room windows were just beautiful.

While we were there, we drove through the Tunnel of Trees, which was a beautiful drive. One of our main goals was to ride bikes on the Wheel Way trail, from Harbor Springs to Charlevoix, we only went as far as Petoskey because of the weather, it snowed. It was so beautiful to see all the fall colors with the snow on the ground.

We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back, thank you for sharing your cabin with us!

Perfect for time to disconnect from stress!!

  • 5 of 5

We came for our honeymoon. The cabin was amazing. It is hard to find from the road because it is not marked well, but definitely worth the hassle! My husband and I were able to relax with no phones ringing and just spend time together. We just drove around and looked at all the beautiful landscapes. Only 40ish minutes from the Upper Peninsula if you take the back way. If we travel that direction again, we will definitely stay here again!

Awesome spot outside of Harbor Springs

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. A gorgeous cabin secluded in the woods. Short drives to Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Mackinac bridge wasn't too far and the drive to the bridge is beautiful. We had a great time!

* Up North Paradise in the Woods*

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to the cabin from down state. The secluded location was exactly what we were looking for. We found the cabin immaculate with the heat at a perfect temp and the hot tub steamy and ready for relaxation! We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and the many surrounding towns to visit! We will be back :)

Private Get Away

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is "wow". This place was hard to find to begin with, but when we "found"the driveway, we immediately fell in love. No Neighbors, no sound, a hot tub. The weather was in the 70s so we relaxed, made bonfires, and took a couple trips into town. The place was so beautiful it made it hard to leave. Will definitely rent again!!

Home away from Home

What a great getaway. We sat at the beach the whole week and just enjoyed the quiet and the sunset drives.

The beaches are wonderful, the cabin is comfortable and the Moose Jaw was a blast.

See you next summer.
