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.
