We are the perfect choice for the family or couple looking for a 'R & R' vacation away from the hustle and bustle of city life or the travelers' that seek adventure by visiting all the attractions Northern Michigan has to offer. 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.

When you are not soaking up the sunshine outside, Uncle Frank's Cabin provides all the comforts of home. Uncle Frank's cabin has 2 bedrooms, 1 baths, a fire place living room (with extra sleeping space), a fully equipped kitchen, and relaxing front family room.
