Overview

About the property

2-3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6-10

The Wild Winds is a nature lover’s paradise. We offer many trails for hiking and/or biking. Enjoy fishing, boating and relaxing on the lake and beach, just steps from your rustic cabin. Or spend time at our private pond (actually a small lake) nestled in the woods, where we have installed a dock for deep water swimming and canoeing. Or for a little more excitement the Wild Winds is only 7-8 Miles from world class golfing, shopping, restaurants and other sporting lakes. If you like to take short day trips you could go to Petoskey to see beautiful Lake Michigan, or spend your day at Mackinac Island.

This log home, "Junior Cabin," has 3 bedrooms sleeps 8-10, and it has a fireplace!

Or consider our other vacation rental at the Wild Winds: "Honeymoon Cabin" has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8-9 (see homeaway.com #298533).

The log homes are right on Wequas Lake, and our beautiful private lake is just a short walk into the woods.

Both homes come equipped with satellite TV, washer, dryer, full kitchen and 1 bath. The price is the same for either log home: the basic rate is $620/wk or $120/night, and prime dates are $755/wk or $150/night. In July and August we rent by the week (Saturday to Saturday) There is $60 cleaning fee, and well-behaved dogs are permitted for a small additional fee.

RUSTIC LOG CABIN IN BEAUTIFUL SETTING! PERFECT FOR SNOWMOBILES!

  • 5 of 5

ENJOYED OUR STAY! WE LOVED THE RUSTIC LOG CABIN, IT HAD LOTS OF CHARM. WE CAME FOR SNOWMOBILING AND THE TRAILS ARE RIGHT AT THE END OF THE DRIVE. ROOM TO PARK OUR TRUCKS AND TRAILERS. LAKE RIGHT OUT BACK WAS BEAUTIFUL WITH THE SNOW ON THE TREES. BUILT A FIRE IN THE FIREPLACE. COOKED IN THE KITCHEN, POTS AND PANS PROVIDED. WASHER AND DRYER TOO! GREAT FOR DRYING GLOVES AND HATS BEFORE THE NEXT SNOWMOBILE RIDE. LOCATION FOR RIDING WAS SERIOUSLY GREAT! ANOTHER NICE THING ABOUT THE CABIN WAS THE SPACE. EVERYONE COULD GET THEIR GEAR ON AND NOT BE CRAMPED. WE HAD 7 PEOPLE AND NEVER FELT CRAMPED. SURE YOU COULD FIND NEWER CABIN OUT THERE BUT WE CANT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS ONE. WE LOVED IT AND WILL RENT AGAIN. THE HOST ROKKO WAS REALLY NICE. THERE TO MEET US AT CHECK IN, HELPFUL WHEN NEEDED AND OTHERWISE GAVE US OUR PRIVACY. SNOWMOBILING HERE WAS GREAT. I BET ITS NICE IN THE SUMMER TOO. WE WOULD RENT AGIAN FOR SURE! THANK YOU!

This property was a very cute cabin and felt very cozy. It was a exactly the what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had a fire place that kept us warm after our long cold days of skiing. It was wonderful and I highly suggest it. The location was amazing and beautiful and we were able to see all the stars through the window which were very bright due to the private none light polluted area. This was an amazing cabin which I wish to return to one day. I highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Please come back soon! (I was visiting my granddaughter in Alabama and didn't get to meet you.) I am always happy when the beauty and comfort of the Wild Winds can be shared with others. And I supply the firewood!

Rustic cabin in nature with fireplace and lake access

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and cozy for the $$

Close to all of gaylord amenities but tucked away in nature

Rokko onsite and in adjacent cabin most of time

Be sure to have keys or you will need to find a way in if locked out we bugged other cabin renters who could help given we didn't have phones on us when we realized door shut and locked

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the Junior cabin, and it was just as nice as the first time three years ago. The property, the trails, the lake, are all just spectacular. The cabin was clean and well furnished and my tow kiddos loved sleeping in the back bedroom. We were very pleased to be able to bring our dog this trip as not all places allow that. Lots of owner contact prior to arrival and someone was there to meet us and make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely keep coming back. Thanks for sharing your place with our family!
