About Crista Haines

We purchased this cabin privately in 2012 as it was in the same family for years. We love the history of this cabin and have enjoyed our vacations here. The sunsets are absolutely amazing from the East Bay!

Why Crista Haines chose Prudenville

We know first hand that pet owners like to travel with their furry family. Our cabin is pet friendly with a fully fenced in yard. There is an additional charge of $20 per night to have a pet.

What makes this cabin unique

The view from the four seasons room is amazing, there is nothing better than sitting in this room in the morning with a cup of coffee and enjoying the peace and beauty of the lake.The yard is completely fenced and lots of room to play yard games or enjoy the lighted shuffleboard court. Endless sunsets throughout the summer. Shallow sandy swim area perfect for kids!

Tough to top

  • 5 of 5

Clean, right on the water, great TV, mid-century modern feel, log walls, coffee maker that actually worked, cool little stools at kitchen island/bar, unbelievable sunsets, ducks cruising past the dock at all hours: we took a fishing trip to Houghton and stayed here and all in all it was wonderful.

Pretty nice but needs a working back door

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is nice but could have been cleaner since we did pay a cleaning fee. There was trash in the bedrooms in the bathroom and there were used dishes laying around. The back door does not lock at all although it appears to and it is falling apart with a bad glue job that didn't hold. The lake was wonderful and the washer and dryer are nice and handy and the cabin being fully stocked with dishes is nice also

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I apologize for the cleaner not paying attention to detail, unfortunately the renter before you forgot what day they were checking out and it was a rush to get it done in 2 hours compared to the 5 hour time slot I allow. Yes the door needs replaced, a renter this year left windows open this season during a storm and we had water damage and swelling. Obviously due to age of cabin replacing the door is not a quick job and it will be done after this renting season is over. Hope you enjoyed the lake!
