About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Welcome to Aubert Den. This cozy log cabin is located in the Ward Hills region of the Manistee National Forest. We invite you to come and enjoy all Lake County has to offer. Out the back door, you will find hiking trails leading you into the surrounding wooded hills. This immediate area is excellent for hiking, snow shoeing and seasonal hunting. Naturalists will enjoy our resident wildlife such as grouse, deer, owl and wood peckers. There are quite a few groomed cross-country ski trails are nearby. After dark, from time to time, the baying of the coyotes can be heard in the distance. For some fun and excitement, mountain bikers will find the North Country Trail just 3 miles from the cabin. Also, the Little 'O' ORV/ATV Trail can be reached by following our 2 track to the property line. Snow mobilers can find Trail 35 one mile east of the cabin. Fishermen may travel 4 miles from the cabin to the Pere Marquette River Access at Rainbow Rapids.

Inside the cabin, twin bedrooms are outfit with Amish made log bunk beds. Each bunk bed has a full size mattress on the bottom and a twin size mattress on the top, sleeping 3 persons per room. In the living room, a full sized log futon comfortably sleeps an additional 2 persons, accommodating 6 persons maximum. All bedding and towels are provided.


The kitchen is equipped with a standard size refrigerator/freezer, four burner electric stove top, a medium sized toaster oven, microwave, crockpot, coffee pot, pots, pans, cooking utensils, dinnerware, silverware, glassware and table linens. The dining table seats 3 comfortable. In front of the cabin, a charcoal grill is provided. Alternatively, an outdoor glass patio table seats 4, or you may enjoy taking advantage of vintage TV trays (set of 4) and skip the formalities.

To ensure a meaningful getaway up north, no cable is provided. However, you are welcome to enjoy our extensive dvd collection that shall suit most interest types. We encourage our guests to spend time by the fire, as behind the cabin there is a fire ring for roasting goodies and telling stories.

We look forward to hosting your Northern Michigan adventure in the near future!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hi! Meet the owners, Lawrence & Ashley Aubert. Lawrence, a Michigan native, and Ashley, a true Floridian, firstly met and lived in the Florida Keys aboard their sailing vessel, Karma, where they raised a little black cat, Gato, and a teacup Pomeranian, Bonsai. Moving to Michigan in 2012 to seek a different style of living. They purchased this amazing 17 acre property consisting of a Main Lodge and Private Cabin. Almost immediately, they began hosting vacationers in their private cabin. Guests were so friendly and kind, they decided to reopen the Lodge as a Bed & Breakfast (the previous owners operated a B&B here for 10 years). In addition to becoming innkeepers, they also raise and train Airedale Terriers. Bonsai & Gato are still around and enjoying the great white North. The Aubert's welcome you to their secluded cabin in the woods!

Why the Owner Chose Branch, MI, USA:
The property offers easy access to the Pere Marquette River as well as excellent snowmobile, hiking, biking and orv/atv trails. The property itself consists of 17 private acres completely surrounded by the Manistee National Forest allowing guests to not only hike the trails on property but also explore the forest directly out back.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Guests in the cabin are welcome to join us in the Lodge for breakfast. Please contact for rates and reservation information.
