Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed at this cabin for a long weekend. As soon as we walked in the cabin it felt like home. The cabin is even more beautiful in person! The stone fireplace is stunning. The half-log steps leading up to the loft were beautifully constructed. The decor had the "up north" look and was very comfortable. We spent some time in Petosky for lunch, wine tastings and beer tastings. However, most of our time was spent at the cabin. Every night we sat for hours in the adirondack chairs just looking out at the lake and enjoyed gorgeous sunsets. We both were very relaxed after our long weekend away. Neither of us wanted to leave the cabin, we could have stayed much longer. We would highly recommend this rental. The owners were a pleasure to work with.

Love this cottage

  • 5 of 5

This year will be our fifth year staying at this cabin. My husband spent his summers on Pickerel Lake and since we live near Pittsburgh, he wanted to take our kids back there to experience it. We found this cabin and have been nothing but pleased with it! We spend every morning drinking our coffee on the dock and then we spend every evening around the fire. My husband and son regularly catch enough fish for our annual "last night fish fry".

The cabin is very clean and very well maintained with enough space for my husband, two teenage children, my mother-in-law and myself. My son loves the proximity to the store and my daughter loves spending the day in a raft reading.

We couldn't be happier with our choice and know you'll love it too!
