One of seven log cabins on Otter Lake in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula
About Christine Manninen
Manninen’s Cabins have been family-owned and operated for more than 80 years. The cabins were built by Ilmari and Flora Manninen, who married in 1919 and settled on a farm at Otter Lake, near the small village of Tapiola, Michigan. They had eight children between them, and opened the first of the cabins in 1937. Their son George and his wife Ruth purchased the property in the 1950s and went on to run the cabins for more than 50 years. The cabins are now owned and operated by George’s youngest daughter, Christine, who is proud of her Finnish heritage and the opportunity to continue the Manninen tradition.

Wonderful Place in UP
Great cabins. Great Lake. Great property manager.
We were so happy to be able to go back to Manninen's Cabins. Chris has done a great job getting it customer ready again after being closed for a few years after her parents retired. Super peaceful. Kids had fun with all of the water options--fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding. Our family had 4 cabins and I think everyone had a great time.
