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.

Rustic Haven on Otter Lake
Well kept cabin on Otter Lake. Fantastic for boating, kayaking and fishing. Lots of wildlife. Had an awesome time.
simple quiet and clean
Nice pace to stay for some quiet time on a lake in the UP. I'd go back.
The lake is beautiful. I saw several Bald Eagles and the fishing was pretty good. Although there is a public access site near the cabins it was not a problem. There was not a lot of activity at the site. The cabin is rustic just as advertised but it has what you need.
