Alden cabin description

This lovely, clean, and unique log cabin is located in northern Michigan surrounded by beautiful hardwood trees and just feet away from a calm no wake lake. This cabin is truly a little gem on Thayer Lake and right across the street from the world recognized Torch Lake. If summer is your season you can enjoy your days either kayaking, fishing, napping in the hammock, sitting in the hot tub, taking a scenic walk, or visiting one of the many other lakes in the area. You will be minutes away from great restaurants and the great outdoors. If you wish to spend time here in the winter you will amazed at the proximity of many outdoor sports including; downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and of course ice fishing right out your backdoor. Any one of these activities couldn't be capped off any better then by sliding into the steaming water our your own personal hot tub.
