We have a relaxing lakefront cabin located in the Hiawatha National Forest, on sandy Trout Lake. Within an hours drive away are St. Ignace, Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island, Tahquamenon Falls, the Soo Locks, Whitefish Point Lighthouse and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, and access to 3 of the Great Lakes - Michigan, Huron, and Superior. Within a 2 to 3 hour drive are Seney National Wildlife Refuge and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Canoeing is available on the Carp River, a National Canoe River, which is connected to Trout Lake itself. Also close-by is part of the North Country Trail for hiking.
The cabin is a place that is ideal for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, golfing (many courses in the area), and hiking. If casinos are more your scene, there are 3 casinos located about an hours drive away in St. Ignace, Sault St. Marie, and Brimley. Or, if you prefer, stay inside near the 2 sliding windows overlooking the beach and build a fire in the fireplace. We also have a fire pit located on the water front.
This smoke-free cabin contains 3 bedrooms for 11 people (3 queens, 5 twins), and 2 full baths. You provide your own food and meals, but you have access to a kitchen fully supplied with utensils and cookware. There is also a coffeemaker, blender, toaster, crockpot, microwave, and outdoor grills.
There is a washer and dryer, DVD player, canoe, and kayak (bring you own paddles). We also have beach chairs available to use on the front and back porches to gaze at the stars or take in the sun and enjoy the boaters on the lake.
We have a list of restaurants and places to visit at the cabin, including many maps.
Our dad and mom built this cabin so we could have a place to enjoy. We inherited it, (my 4 brothers and sister), when they passed away. We have gone all over the U.P. and Canada and seen many sites. It has brought many hours and years of happy memories.
We have decided it is a good time to encourage others who may like to explore the upper peninsula and see what it has to offer. It is a great place to lay back or use as a home base!
We are going up to the cabin this week-end (July 30th) and will be fixing the stairs. We currently have a tape across one of two stairs leading from the front porch to the lake. We decided to take care of this problem when we were up there over July 4th. It is the first time we have been able to get back back up there due to rentals.
We had a great time at the cabin and were very happy with the accommodations. Everything you need is there. We take a family trip every year
with our children and grandchildren and it was great to be able to all be in one cabin. There were 11 of us this year and we all had a bed to sleep
in. The grand kids enjoyed swimming and fishing. It is centrally located to the Soo and the Falls. When we returned home we posted pictures on facebook and had several people want information on the cabin and how to book it. We would definitely stay again.
Our time at Trout Lake was very nice. The setting and lake are beautiful and very relaxing and the home, although older, met our needs just fine. Nanci was excellent at answering our questions and providing us with information. My only suggestion would be to complete the repairs quickly on the porch facing the lake. Yes, we would return to this rental.

My husband and I wanted a relaxing quiet week with our 2 little dogs, that's exactly what we had. The house was very comfortable with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the lake , the firepit and all the peace and quiet. There are many things to do and see not far from the property but we chose to get some rest. This is really a great rental, so Thank you for the use of your home and we hope to come back again .

We rented the cabin for a long weekend with the family. When we arrived things weren't as nice as they appeared in the photo. The price we paid was not worth it. The kitchen counters were cluttered with items that we had to put away to make room for our items . We put them in the closet pantry which had food that had been opened and set in there. The refrigerator was the same scenario. We put those items in the refrigerator door and told the family not to use. They had a mouse problem. The mice got into our food and after we spotted a mouse, we started checking for traps. We found mouse traps hidden in the kitchen and living room. We even trapped a couple mice ourselves.Thankfully we thought ahead and brought our own towels as there weren't enough for everyone. The back deck had rotting stairs. We had to borrow life jackets from the neighbor. Need I go on? We booked months in advance. We booked in May for a stay at the end of September. We felt like they did nothing to prepare for us or to make our stay special. Sad indeed.
Great property and house! My husband, daughter and I along with 4 friends had a wonderful weekend getaway at this home. Everything was clean and very spacious. And was so nice to have stocked linens, kitchen, you name it! We will definitely be coming back and m would love to make this a regular destination for our family and friends. Thank you for your hospitality!
The cabin was perfect for our 2 family vacation get-a-way. The bedrooms were set up perfectly to fit our needs as well. It was great with children enjoying the shallow water to play in. We also caught several Walleye which my kids have never seen before. The bit of criticism I would offer is that the aluminum boat had mismatched oars (one didn't fit that particular boat). Thank goodness I had my trolling motor. I would recommend in a heartbeat.
