About Lynda

We fell in love with the Port Austin area 16 years ago while camping. The memories created with our children will last our lifetime and theirs. We purchased Lynda's Lodge to continue creating memories with our family and hope you enjoy the area as much as we do creating your own memories.

Lynda purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lynda chose Port Austin

The knotty pine walls and hard wood floors remind me of my grandparents cabin. This cabin, however, has modern amenities.

Peaceul and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

Lynda's Lodge was everything we hoped for and more. There is plenty of space. The kitchen was well stocked and it was great to have a washer and dryer available. The place is clean and very tastefully decorated. The beach is small but the water was calm and clear. There weren't a lot of other people in neighboring homes - likely due to the time of year - so it was extra quiet. We took a couple morning walks on the beach and had some evening bonfires in the fire pit. One evening, a neighbor came over and joined us for a short period of time. Folks in Port Austin were all friendly and helpful.

The weather was perfect the long weekend we were there so we hardly spent any time indoors until way after the sun went down. I moved from the area 28 years ago and forgot how beautiful those sunsets are.

We are looking forward to returning to Lynda's! I may have to make a girls' long weekend with my friends in the area.

Lynda is a very attentive hostess. She was quick to respond to questions I had and provided some good information on local attractions.

Very nice cottage, our family is so glad we rented it for the second summer in a row. It was super clean and everything you could want was provided, all you need to bring is good weather. Great place, highly recommended! Keep up the good work Lynda!

Perfect For Our Family of Four

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer renting this property. It is perfect for a family of four. Lynda has everything you need to make this cottage feel like home. Most of our time was spent outdoors and in the sunroom enjoying the view. Sunsets are breathtaking! Will return next summer!

Very welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and everything that we could ask for. The furniture was comfy and the entire place very welcoming. The WiFi made it easy to use our tablets to plan our routes to different locations throughout the Thumb (and we visited a lot of different places). The view was fantastic and we enjoyed a few sunsets by the fire. Unfortunately, due to the lake level being so high this year, there was no beach, but we still enjoyed swimming/kayaking. The shallow area goes a long way out and as long as you have water shoes you'll be fine. The only issue was that the bottom step down to the water is a little high. It was a pretty good size step down to the rocks. Other than that A+ for everything else! There was enough dishes/cups/etc. and cooking equipment so that you don't have to bring anything else. Thank you for letting us rent your cabin!

The beaches are clean and beautiful. Port Austin is home to beautiful rock formations along its shoreline, and has sandy beaches. Nearby is Port Crescent State Park, which has one of Michigan's finest beaches.

The knotty pine with hardwood floor cabin is located 16 miles east of Caseville and 2 miles west of Port Austin on the sandy shore Port Huron.

There are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sun-room, living room, family room, kitchen and a deck to enjoy.

The kitchen is fully stocked with dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, dishes, pots and pans, utensils, etc. There is also a washer/dryer, TV and a DVD player. Linens (pillows, sheets, towels, etc) are provided.

Port Austin & Caseville offer shops, grocery stores, a party store, kayak rental, bicycle rental, mini golf, parks, movie theater, tennis courts, restaurants and bars. Two upscale restaurants are located nearby.
