We are located a few miles off I-75 and about 15 miles South of Mackinaw City, so we are easy to travel to and from.

Uncle Frank's Cabin is nestled on a 3.5 acre property full of wild raspberries, birch trees, and a large yard. Enjoy the lakefront of Lancaster Lake, a small yet deep inland lake (50+ acre). The lake is perfect for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, and small or slow moving motor boats. Enjoy using of our 8 passenger PONTOON BOAT, CANOE, and PADDLE BOAT all FREE of Charge!

In addition to enjoying the lake activities please utilize our iron ring fire pit, hammock, new pine deck, propane BBQ grill, picnic table, and horseshoe pit.

We look forward to our 4th year of VRBO renting at Uncle Frank's Cabin as the 2015 summer season approaches. Each year we are improving Uncle Frank's Cabin and we look forward to new and returning travelers.

Uncle Frank's Cabin is ideal vacation rental for the traveler looking for a secluded hideaway or the traveler looking to sight see Northern Michigan. Uncle Frank's Cabin brings together the best of both worlds. Wake up to the soft cooing of loons and an early round of Lancaster Lake fishing right off the dock. Then enjoy lunch and fudge tasting in Mackinaw City, followed by a beach afternoon at the crystal waters of Sturgeon Bay located near Cross Village. Finish the evening with a flame grilled cookout at Uncle Frank's Cabin with alternating rounds of horseshoes and gooey s'mores.

About: Greetings future renters! We are Frank and Sherry Petrowski proud owners of Uncle Frank's Cabin. We live in Petoskey, MI (only 40 minutes from Uncle Frank's Cabin) and we love Northern Michigan, Summer time, and family. We have shared 35 years of married bliss and we are the proud parents of two adult children and the proud grandparents to one granddaughter. Frank is the residential 'handy man' of Uncle Frank's Cabin as he is a certified service technician and has built many of the additions to Uncle Frank's Cabin. Including our famous 'Fish Chairs' out by our fire-pit. Frank is also the outdoors man of the duo and loves fishing as much as he can. So ask him where to score the monster fish! Sherry is the resident 'concierge' of Uncle Frank's Cabin and she loves traveling and community events. So ask her about where to go for dinner or what local festivals are going on. Oh, and enjoy her 'Welcome' basket when you enjoy your stay at Uncle Frank's Cabin. Sherry professionally works at a Petoskey Child Development Center. We are here to make your stay enjoyable and we look forward to meeting you!
