Close to walking trails, steps to the boat launch, a top restaurant is only 4 cabins away, quick drive to all conveniences.
**need more space? add a LITTLE RED CABIN: available for families wishing for additional accommodations, we offer this charmer directly across the gravel drive, within view of the beach bucket!
Details--The little red cabin is set up nicely with a kitchen, small dining table and living area. It has a separate bedroom with queen (12" high density foam comfort) bed, and small bath with shower. It is charming and comfortable !
We have an additional twin bed off the living area too, so children can sleep separately.
*the Little Red Cabin is priced at half the rate of the beach bucket. This cabin is intended an add-on for the main cabin. First priority is for renters at main cabin. Weeks open to others thereafter.
OUTDOOR FUN: Watch (& hear) the Loons from your deck overlooking the lake; go fishing off a new dock, launch the 2 person paddle boat; canoe too.....or just lounge on the front deck!
Beach Bucket--INTERIOR COMFORT: The cottage has an open floor plan for socializing and features 2 bedrooms and generous size bath with shower. The entire cabin is lined with traditional knotty pine walls, comfortable seating. Full stone fireplace has an insert for coziness! Large windows frame a wonderful view of the serene lake and sandy shore.

We are close to Mackinaw City, Cheboygan, Indian River, Petoskey, or Cross village for day trips or any meals.
