About Mike & Julie Parker
We are lifetime Michiganders and thoroughly enjoy the 'up north' experience. We enjoy riding our ATVs and Jeep and have taken so many trips to this area because there is just so much we love to do! We hope you will come and stay and make wonderful memories of your own.
Mike & Julie Parker purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Mike & Julie Parker chose Saint Helen
We have traveled to the West Branch/ Houghton Lake/ St. Helen area for years to drive our jeep and quads and to play golf. After numerous trips, we realized this area was the perfect 'UP NORTH' destination! We feel lucky to have found such a beautiful log home in such an ideal location.
What makes this Cabin unique
After seeing the character of the log interior, along with the beautiful river rock fireplace, we were enchanted. After relaxing out on the deck and taking in the surrounding beauty, we were sold! This property has the charm of a log home with all the modern amenities that make for an exceptional experience.

Beautiful slice of heaven
We have stayed here twice with our extended family, and it has been very enjoyable both times! The lake is so beautiful and peaceful. The teenage boys spent hours kayaking around the island, while the littler kids enjoyed playing in the water by shore. We finished our days with campfires and Smores. Great place to stay- highly recommended!
Clean and comfortable!
Off the beaten path.
This house is fabulous! Spotless, well stocked, roomy, they've thought of everything!
This was our 4th year here, and it just gets better every year! I can't say enough about this place. We have 6 couples for a weekend to ride the trails on our side by sides...this is our first ride of the season ,and we all love this weekend away! The house is so warm and inviting. There's more than enough room for everyone. We ride all day, and then if the weather is good we have a bon fire at night. If the weather is too cold, we stay in and have a fire in the beautiful fire place. The kitchen is well stocked with every thing we need. The entire house is decorated perfectly! We instantly feel 'at home' the moment we walk in. We hope to have many more visits here. Highly recommend! ---the Whitmer Group
You will never want to stay anywhere else in St. Helen again!
The pictures do not do this cabin justice! They cannot express how truly beautiful, fun and cozy this cabin really is! The attention to detail is unbelievable. It is everything you would expect a northern Michigan cabin to be! Clean, organized and stocked! If you forget something, I can almost guarantee they have it there waiting for you! The Kitchen has everything thing you need! Even a Popcorn Machine! We had our Wicked Jeeps Board Retreat here and It was close to the trails for wheeling.We have rented cabins in St. Helen before, but none as truly amazing as this one is! Mike and Julie are fantastic Hosts. They made our rental experience easy, quick and affordable! Thank you Mike and Julie from all of us! Sheri Austin, Vice President, Wicked Jeeps Southeast Michigan
Once again it was a weekend of epic proportions! We laughed, sang, enjoyed great food and made many wonderful memories! Walking over to the island and exploring and sledding down the hill. It was absolutely amazing!! I would live there forever if Mike and Julie would let me... lol!! We'll be back in September for another great weekend with family!
Family time is the best time!
This “cabin” is perfect for our annual family getaway! It has everything needed from baby gates and high chairs to the coffee pot! Mike is always very accommodating and sincerely wants to make sure that we have the best stay!
