Big Rapids cabin description

The Card's Nest rental cabin is nestled in the woods located on Gorrel lake. Gorrel lake provides a very nice, private setting. There are only 3 dwellings located on the entire lake. The property is adjacent to Merrill Lake County Park, which provides a place for the children to play, including a playground and swimming beaches on two lakes within walking distance. Located near the Pier Marquette snowmobile trail, The Card's Nest offers something for every season. Nature abounds in the surrounding woods, and is great for spotting birds, animals, and just enjoying nature.

We provide a fully furnished cabin, you need only bring your personal items and towels. A rowboat, two kayaks, and a paddle boat are provided. These can be launched from our small private sandy area, or tied to the dock during your stay.

The kitchen area has recently been upgraded with all new cabinets, counter tops, cast iron sink, range, and refrigerator. We also provide a 'beer and bait' refrigerator in the downstairs entranceway. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, utensils, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and more.

Bedroom 1 downstairs in newly renovated, and has a double bed, rustic pine furniture (locally crafted) and a beatiful view of the lake. Bedroom 2 has a double bed. Bedroom 3 provides a double bed and twin bunk beds. There are two double sized futons in family room.

Outdoor area provides a large deck overlooking the lake. There is a charcoal grill, as well as a fire pit with cooking grates. Build in benches and a picnic table provide seating around the deck and firepit area. There is a balcony off the upper floor that offers beautiful views of the lake and woods.

While this is a remote setting, basic needs can be met in Barryton, less than 10 minutes away, and a larger town is only 15 minutes away.

Our weekly rentals run from Sunday to Sunday.
