Private Detroit Lake Cabin - Views of Detroit Marina/Lake

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Located just a few minutes walk from downtown Detroit and directly above the Detroit Marina. This cabin home is both secluded and in the center of it all! Your evening will be quiet with only the crackling of the firepit and commraderee of your quests as you relax in the provided camp chairs, roasting marshmallows. Your views will included the snow capped vistas surrounding the lake & boats as they enter & exit the marina. Parking is plentiful, as the home is at the end of a dead end street.

In the morning, you can choose your adventure. Whether it's boating, hiking or skiing on the lake, skiing/sledding at Hoo Doo (45 minutes away), or spending the day at the Brietenbush Hot Springs (20 minutes away). Detroit Lake has something for everyone.

Why Aaron chose Detroit

We fell in love with Detroit Lake in college. It was always the first camping trip of the year. 20 years later, married with children, we decided it's much more comfortable to enjoy the Lake's ammenities in a cabin! Our first 'cabin' was more of a house, so we were really excited when this cabin came on the market. We've always wanted a cabinesque cabin with all the comforts of home and this house is perfect. We love it!

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is at the end of a dead end street with only one real neighbor. This means that there's little to no traffic. You're free to enjoy the closeness to town AND a bit of privacy. Our favorite part of the cabin is having a bunch of friends up (we own the adjacent cabin as well & there are multiple tent locations), cooking a big dinner, and enjoying it at the outdoor picnic table & around the large firepit. Then hours of letting the kids play outside while we converse at the fire. There's also plenty of board games, 100's of movies and a mini foosball/pool/ping pong table to keep the kids occupied. It's camping with the luxury of a fully stocked house. Really, we throw in perishables, a change of clothes and go.

Beautiful location. Well kept

  • 5 of 5

Host very easy to get hold of. It is beautiful and well kept. Despite a bad storm day before, it was easy to access the driveway and park. Close to everything but quiet.

We enjoyed the cabin decor and feel. Kitchen had everything we needed. The layout was great, we had three good areas to sit and chat, play games and eat together in.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin came with everything we needed. Nicely stocked kitchen. And the beds were very comfortable.

Since it is at the end of the road the setting is so pretty. There is plenty of parking and the view was lovely. Since it was winter we didn't use the outdoor cooking area but I can see where that would be very nice in good weather.

My family and I loved the cabin. The a/c unit isn't big enough to cool cabin, but it was still a great time
