About Mike Palmer

Our custom-built cabin was completed in 2010. We love spending time here no matter what time of year! There is always something to do, whether it is a long walk on the lakebed in the fall, watching the snow fall in the winter, or BBQs on the porch in the summer. Always a great time in Detroit, with lasting memories of time with friends and family.

Mike Palmer purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Mike Palmer chose Detroit

We have always loved vacationing at Detroit Lake and feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to build this beautiful cabin. We are happy to share! Besides the summer lake fun, it is close to Hoodoo Ski Resort and Mt. Bachelor, Salem, Sisters and Bend.

What makes this cabin unique

A favorite of the kids is to walk to the store and buy candy! The store is a short and safe walk from our cabin. Early-morning walks and late-night star gazing are also favorites. There is a peaceful energy year-round and a festive energy in summer!

Beautiful, clean, great location - ideal getaway for family or friends

  • 5 of 5

Our family (party of 9 plus dogs) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin is beautiful, clean and located in a perfect spot. Mike and his wife were incredibly responsive and helpful. Personally, I appreciated that there is no cable as the TV stayed off all weekend and we got to spend more quality time together. There are lots of blankets. The covered patio and views from the large windows are very relaxing. Room with the bunk beds is very spacious.

Thank you again for opening your lovely cabin to our family, Palmers!

Beware! Extremely poor hospitality and supply of basics!

  • 1 of 5

The home is beautiful even though rooms are a little small. We would have enjoyed our stay however the hospitality was beyond dissatisfactory. The home was not supplied with sufficient basics such as toilet paper, hand soap, dishwasher soap, shower soap, kitchen cloth for washing dishes and cleaning counters, hand and shower towels for bathrooms. And the washer/dryer was not in order for washing. The owners are extreme cheapskates when supplying the basic items for making a visit hospitable. Their home instructions say to contact them if we need anything during our stay, however, when we did contact them to let them know that there wasn't enough soap to run the dishwasher, complete lack of soap in the shower and not enough toilet paper they disregarded our requests and did not honor their offer to be hospitable if we needed anything. They had no intention of being hospitable to us, even though their description gives a song and dance that they supply basic items and that we could contact them during our stay if we needed anything. They just put us off by telling us that we could buy what we needed at the local grocery store. Beware - you will pay quadruple the price at the mini-grocery stores in town. The owner gave us pitiful answers to our needs saying that they only supply an "initial supply - a days worth" of the basics, then we could buy whatever else we needed at the store. We paid for three nights, yet they only supply a day's worth of basics and no shower soap at all. When we mentioned that there was no shower soap, he minimized the request by calling it a "personal care item" and likened it to us asking for shampoo, which we never requested. I informed him that we have never stayed in a vacation/hotel/motel situation where they don't supply soap for the shower. They do not have any intention of being hospitable. We stayed for three nights with a group of 13, and they supplied us three dishwasher pods. We paid $75 extra for our thirteenth person in the group and for the $75 the owners could have supplied the basics in this house for 3 months! We had to spend close to $7 at the local grocery store for 20 dishwasher pods! And other items like toilet paper are ridiculously expensive at this store that he sent us to. These owners were completely inhospitable! I would not recommend staying here with folks who were cheapskates and inhospitable. Our stay was unpleasant and very disappointing as a result of the inhospitality

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you found our mountain cabin beautiful. We take pride in maintaining it in like-new condition for our guests. Over the past seven years, we have opened our cabin to hundreds of guests to enjoy the beautiful Detroit Lake area, with many repeat customers. We also pride ourselves in keeping our pricing affordable so that many families, such as yours, can enjoy the experience. The cabin is an exceptional value for families planning a get-away together. Overwhelmingly, our guests find our cabin well-suited for their needs. It is unfortunate that we were unable to meet your specific needs. As we mentioned the cabin is stocked with sufficient supplies for an average party, including two rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom, hand soap for all sinks, dishwasher detergent for three days, clean sponges, napkins, paper towels, bath towels, etc. We do not supply body soap, shampoo, or other personal care items. We encourage guests to bring any specific items they normally require outside of the usual standard supplies, and to consider the extra supplies needed for larger parties such as yours. Again, we are sorry we were not able to meet your needs. We wish you the best of luck in your future vacation rental experiences.

Clean, quiet, comfortable, welcoming, well-kept.

  • 5 of 5

My family felt very welcome and comfortable in the cabin. The owners were very accommodating and nice. Opening and closing instructions were clear and understanding. The cabin was well stocked ( except for extra toilet paper. Might want to bring your own). Beautiful area and quiet surroundings. We will definitely book this cabin again.

felt like home

  • 4 of 5

Over all the stay was very enjoyable. marina is a short walk from the house and so is the store

One thing that is not good about the house is the very steep gravel drive way

it makes it very difficult to unload and load your car or truck

There is plenty of off street parking for boat trailer and extra cars

Thanks for the use of the house
