About Owner

We are a family of 5 who have enjoyed this slice of paradise as a second home for 14 years. The original cabin has been built on to doubling its size to accommodate our family. With our children getting older and our schedules and activities make vacation time a little harder to come by, we thought we would share this slice of heaven with others.

Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why Owner chose Saint Helen

After looking at a hundred locations for second homes, there simply was no other property on the market in Northern Michigan that compared to this property. We are convinced you will agree!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home when we began down our two track easement which is essentially our 1/2 mile long driveway. The seclusion factor combined with the lakefront ambience and cabin feel simply cannot be matched.

Perfect for the occasion

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of space for our group (14 adults) to spread out, both inside and outside. Great fishing on the lake (pike, perch, bass, pan fish). Very secluded, tons of privacy. Still close enough to grocery store (Walmart 10mi away) that if we forgot something it was available close by. Will definitely keep this property in mind when planning future golf getaways with the guys.

Great location. Close to the St. Helen route. Room on the property for our kids to run around and explore. The beds are good quality too. We really like this place. Take good care of it while you’re there. Glad the owner is willing to share such a great place.

Totally the place to rent!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! We had a group of 12 adults and never felt cramped. There was plenty of space to move around and hang. The pictures don't do this place justice. One of the big perks, which I didn't even realize, what that it has three full bathrooms! It had an amazing sound system, both inside and out. We spent our days outside hanging by the water and our nights around the gigantic fire pit. This house would be perfect for a family vacation or an adults only getaway! The owner is super helpful and was always available to answer any questions. Also, there are no neighbors! We definitely will be renting again!

This property is one in a million! Lake views from nearly every room in the house. Great rustic interior amidst a very modern cabin with a modern kitchen and a large plasma tv in the family room. Great for a crowd - we had 12 - and never felt crowded. The lake was warm and clear and great swimming for the kids and the adults! Great sports lake - we brought our jet skis and the lake is perfect for them. Can't say enough - I have rented many a summer rental and this was the best! Don't pass it up.

Nicer and Bigger than pictures..

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 had an awesome time.. The Grandkids didn't want to leave!! It is very private in the woods. My 10 yr old Grandson said on the way in for the first time "Grandpa we are in the deep, deep woods!" The home is very nice with plenty of room, we never felt crowded. (7 adults and 7 kids) The lot was big enough for all kinds of games and adventures. The kitchen is modern with a great island for prep and eating. The mattresses were nice and comfortable. The home was very clean. We saw 10+ deer, raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels etc. The kids found lots of frogs and crawfish. We didn't fish but we saw lots of fish in the lake! The lake was awesome. WARM and clear.. few other boats/people were seen all week long. It dropped off very gradually so it was great for even the little kids.

We look forward to going again... If you are considering this place... DO IT! Its a great choice.
