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.

We had a wonderful time at Uncle Frank's Cabin in late May and early June. This was our second year staying at this amazing, peaceful, pleasant place. We hope this will become an annual tradition.

Beautiful location. Clean and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a good portion of our time fishing from the pontoon. Caught and released many 15-19 inch pike from the edges of the lake. Also, got a couple of large mouth bass, blue gill and a small bull head. Very relaxing.

Perfect up North cottage by a lake

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was easy to get to, was exactly as advertised, and was clean and inviting. The lake view, fire pit, pontoon boat, and canoe made it special. Very quiet. Pontoon boat is pretty old and not in great shape but it came with the cottage and engine ran fine. Would be nice to have full size paddles for the canoe, and some tips for fishing- we didn’t have much luck except for a few small ones we threw back in. A great location close to Mackinac City and Island. Thanks for a great weekend!

We look forward to our 7th year of VRBO renting at Uncle Frank's Cabin as the 2018 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.
