About Jeanette

We are Roland & Jeanette Zimmermann, and live on the property so that we can be available if our guests need anything. We enjoy being on the lake and fishing, and desire to make you feel welcome and at home. We will try to make your vacation as enjoyable as we can.

Jeanette purchased this cabin in 1986

Why Jeanette chose Eagle River

You can't beat the year around beauty of this area. We just havn't found anywhere we like better.

What makes this cabin unique

You will enjoy having meals on your deck, having easy access to the lake. Lounging at the water's edge, gazing over this beautiful lake. A sandy lake bottom for great swimming. Sitting around the bonfire, (we have grates to fit right over the fire for grilling) and spending time on the lake. You can fish right off your pier. Watching the baby fawns and the newly hatched birds is a real treat. Hear the loons, most every night. Love gazing at all the stars at night. Hiking & biking on our non-through country road is wonderful.

Perfect Cottage in a Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

I always wanted to rent a cottage where the view from the cottage was looking through the trees to the lake and that is exactly what I got.

We saw red squirrels, chipmunks, deer, ducks, eagles, herons and loons along with hearing a Wolf at night which was pretty cool. Caught a 20" small mouth on the first day which I entered into John Gillespie's Waters and Woods Fishing contest. What more could you like than that except we had daily boating trips up and down the chain, stopping for lunches or drinks at the Pirates hideout. The cottage has everything you need with a fireplace stocked with more than enough wood. A great deck to cook out on or just for sitting out and chilling. The shoreline has a great sitting, wading and swim area with a swim deck near by to suntan on. If your restless by Monday take a 15 min. ride over to St. Germain for the Flea Market on Monday's, its unbelievable. Then stride over to the Pub and Prime for a great prime rib sandwich that melts in your mouth every time and of course their Tiki Bar.

Is there more to add??? Oh yeah, your hosts are very nice. You won't find a nicer person than Jeanette and she is right next door if you need anything.

This ones not a Clover, it's a 4 leaf Clover!

Lapeer, Mi

A wonder cabin, in a great location, with very nice owners. VERY NICE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice place! I will book this place again in the winter. Close to snowmobile trails (Not on trail, but accessible within a mile or so via tree covered roads). I just can't say enough good things about this location. I will be back again. Jeanette is very good to work and has provided everything needed for a wonderful stay. A+++

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Sean. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that you had a good snowmobiling experience. We think not being ON the trail is a good thing because you can't hear others, but can get on it yourself. Since most people take a chance on what they are reserving, we want to do what we can to make sure that they're happy and feel they've made the right choice. Try to be upfront about what we offer. A vacation should be a good thing. Couldn't live with ourselves if we didn't try to make our guests feel good about their get-a-way. Thanks again, you made our day. Jeanette

Great get-a-way spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet spot to spend a few days to de-stress and relax and this was just the place!

The cabin has a cozy feel with all the conveniences of home including WiFi and Satellite TV. We relaxed, watched movies and enjoyed fires in the wood burning fireplace.

The owners made sure we had everything we needed and we appreciated the small touches of homemade cookies when we arrived and a personalized note to welcome us.

The cabin is in a very quiet area and looks out over the lake, but it is convenient to get to town if you need anything or just want to explore.

We enjoyed our time here and recommend it highly. We plan to be back in the future!
