Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Frank & Sherry,

Thank-you for making your cabin available to renters.

We had a very good time here - fishing every morning & night – using your Pontoon Boat & paddle boats & canoes & fires nightly. We loved the Loons, geese, Blue Heron & just the atmosphere of Uncle Frank’s Cabin. We also loved the location & enjoyed the nearby cities & beaches.

Wonderful and quiet getaway location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay! Everything we possibly could have needed was there. We really enjoyed the quietness of the area and use of the boat and paddleboat! The cabin is located in a perfect spot and close to many other attractions to see. We were able to go to Mackinaw City, Soo Locks, Tahquamenon Falls State Park, swam in Lake Michigan at the sand dunes, and spent a day at Mackinac Island during our stay. This vacation included everything our family loves to do! Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!!

Great Cabin, good fishing, relaxing & restful

  • 4 of 5

Nicest cabin we have stayed at over the years. Very quiet and restful. Beautiful sunsets. Enjoyed the loons in early morning and late evening. Evening camp fires and S'mores were a highlight. Having S'more ingredients provided was a nice touch. Fishing was good. We even coped with going cold turkey withdrawal from the internet for the week. Granddaughter was a little disappointed at not being able to swim, but made up for it with fishing. Use of boats was an added bonus, although the paddle boat was a little cranky, but fun. All in all, a really good week.

Peaceful Family time

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to be able to return to Uncle Frank's cabin again. It's a such a perfect, peaceful place for family time. We enjoyed fishing again, smores and a fire. We saw so many stars in the sky at night! The Loons and Geese families were out too and the kids loved seeing them.

Thank you again for opening up your lovely cabin for us to visit. It's truly a gem.

Close to the bridge

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the fact that it's a quick drive to Mackinaw, yet sits on a quiet lake that's very private. Very relaxing property, with everything we needed in the cabin, including a basket of s'more goodies. We really enjoyed our stay!

We look forward to our 5th year of VRBO renting at Uncle Frank's Cabin as the 2016 summer season approaches. Each year we are improving Uncle Frank's Cabin and we look forward to new and returning travelers.

Uncle Frank's Cabin is ideal vacation rental for the traveler looking for a secluded hideaway or the traveler looking to sight see Northern Michigan. Uncle Frank's Cabin brings together the best of both worlds. Wake up to the soft cooing of loons and an early round of Lancaster Lake fishing right off the dock. Then enjoy lunch and fudge tasting in Mackinaw City, followed by a beach afternoon at the crystal waters of Sturgeon Bay located near Cross Village. Finish the evening with a flame grilled cookout at Uncle Frank's Cabin with alternating rounds of horseshoes and gooey s'mores.
