About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath - sleeps 4

This gem of a cabin was just constructed and the owners are completing the final touches. It will be available to rent effective Memorial Weekend, 2017. This privately owned cabin sits on 13 beautiful acres in Wilderness State Park near Mackinaw City and is directly across the road from Lake Michigan. It sits on a hill and has wonderful views of the Big Stone Bay. There is a large deck overlooking the Bay and offers ample opportunity to view the variety of wildlife here. Watch the eagles, osprey, loons, deer, fox, coyote, bobcat and maybe you'll be lucky enough to spot a bear. The park offers miles of hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross country ski trails. The bay is perfect for kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing or just enjoying a leisurely swim. Wilderness is just completing a "day park" a short distance away that has a wonderful sandy beach, bathroom facilities and lots of sunshine! The water is crystal clear and the Lake has a nice, sandy bottom that is shallow for quite a distance. It makes for great beach time with the kids.

The cabin comes complete with linens, bedding, dishes, pots and pans, silverware and cooking utensils. There is a toaster, coffee pot, electric oven/stove, griddle, microwave and full size refrigerator. There are 2 large ceiling fans for warm days but there is generally a nice breeze. There is also a gas grill/propane provided for you use as well as a picnic table for outdoor dining.

The cabin has 1 bedroom with twin beds, a futon that sleeps an additional 2, beautiful hardwood floors, dining table/chairs, an extra wide shower in the bathroom and a nicely equipped kitchen and lots of windows to let in the light. The cabin is bright and cheery with views of the surrounding area from every room.

We encourage you to bring your boat, kayaks, canoes, bikes or other outdoor "toys" for your pleasure. The Wilderness Park boat launch is across the road for putting in and plenty of parking on the property for your boat/trailer. If you will be using the boat launch, you will need to purchase a park pass at the Rangers Station which will give you access to the park and it's services.

There is a great general store a short walk away that makes donuts and coffee daily but the closest Grocery Store, gas station, and shopping is in Mackinaw City, about 20 minutes away.

If you are interested in visiting some of the local areas, the cabin is a short drive (within 30 minutes) to Mackinaw City, Mackinac Island, Carp Lake, Alanson, Petoskey, Good Hart, Cross Village, Harbor Springs and Indian River. Everything from fine dining to roadside cafe's, lots of antiquing, breweries, wineries, golf, sailing - the list goes on and on! Once you visit, you'll be hooked. This is a place you'll want to come back to year after year. We look forward to hosting you!
