Reminiscent of Abraham Lincoln's birthplace, this hand-hewn log cabin dates back to the early 1800's. The log cabin was originally built in northern Indiana by pioneer settlers from Pennsylvania. Over the years, the logs were covered up with clapboard siding and this preserved them for years.
In 1970, another pastor bought the logs and relocated it in its present location in northern Newaygo County. The log portion of the cabin has a great room with two bedrooms upstairs. About twenty years later, he added a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/dining room. In 1994, we bought the cabin and have enjoyed many summers relaxing and enjoying the peace and solitude. We've enjoyed the lake-access privileges on the quiet non-sports, no-wake private fishing lake nearby.
Bed linens, bathroom towels, blankets and pillows are provided. The beds include one queen sized bed in the master room and four twin beds upstairs in the log cabin.
NOTE: We do not have trash service. All guests must take their trash with them OR guests are welcome to take advantage of the township waystation within a few miles from the cabin. Instructions and days of operation are listed on the refrigerator.
FYI: This cabin is about one hour from Lake Michigan and Ludington State Park has a beautiful clean public beach to spend a day.
