Cheboygan cabin description
One of a kind. This is a log cabin originally built in the 40s as a hunting lodge. It is on Lake Huron with gorgeous views of the straits of Mackinaw, Bois Blanc Island and on a clear day the Mackinaw Bridge. The sunsets are out of this world. We are surrounded on all sides by Nature Conservancy forest, and it is not unusual to walk the beach for a couple of miles without encountering a soul. The beach is largely sandy and the drop off is shallow with several sand bars. The swimming is excellent. We have a canoe and kayaks for exploring the area or even going out to Poe Reef lighthouse if you are adventurous.
The cottage itself is, in a word, rustic. We are unencumbered by modern conveniences, but that is not to say we are without comfort. The kitchen is basic but well outfitted with quality kitchenware. We have a washer and dryer. On the ground floor is a small bedroom and a larger "dormitory" style room with four beds. The living area is a combination dining/living room with a very large stone fireplace. There is a half upstairs with three single beds.
We are close to Mackinaw, Petoskey and the Upper Peninsula.
This was our cottage when we were children, and now our children have spent their summers here as well. We are looking for guests who will appreciate, and respect, the special qualities of this very unique cottage. We are more interested in getting the right "match" than the highest price, and we will give first priority to somebody looking to stay for three or more weeks, and hopefully come back year after year.

a very special place
a very special place
My 2 week stay was incredibly renewing for me and my dogs. It was very peaceful and the cottage itself is really comfortable and well equipped- it is rustic, I suppose, but it was very clean had every amenity that mattered to me; the description and photos were accurate. The setting is incomparable- very private and like having your own 5 miles of lakeshore to the west. We only left the property in the car once- long walks every day on wide expanses of beach and dunes which we had all to ourselves. Lots of great rocks in the water. Wireless connection was fast and nice to have. Owner was responsive and accommodating. We certainly will return to take advantage of this special place.
