3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8
Weekly rentals only. Come listen to the birds chirping, loons calling, and the beautiful landscape with a breeze blowing on a privately owned 4 acre island in a comfortable, cozy and fully furnished 3 bedroom, 1 bath cabin in the beautiful town of Lewiston, Michigan. The cabin is located just up a walk way through a wooded trail, completely surrounded by trees and wild flowers
with a panoramic view of the lake. Come enjoy the nature and take peaceful walks around the 4 acre island on the walking trails. There is walking from the cabin to a hand built Tiki hut that over looks the lake and beach with access to a fire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows or making hobo pies under
the milky way sky. We do not provide fire wood. You can bring your own firewood or purchase bundles in town. It is our discretion to permit fires based on the weather conditions such as windy or dry conditions. We are not able to get a fire truck onto the island so we are very strict about fires.
We do share the tiki with our guests and do respect your privacy but do know this is a common shared space with the owners. We also have a family pet and occasionally there may be an additional dog or two when a family member is here to greet you for your stay.
We have a hammock that swings by the lake.Tee lake is perfect for swimming, it has some of the deepest waters around and is a fresh spring fed lake. We offer a paddle boat, 2 kayaks, and access to a Pontoon boat weekly rental which includes the first tank of gas.
There is a Tee Lake boat launch with access if you have your own boat you'd like to bring. If you choose to forgo the pontoon rental, we will gladly transport you to and from the island upon arrival and departure only.
As this is our summer home, we do stay on the island for any of your needs, if you have any. There is no smoking permitted in the cabin, and the only smoking area is on beach. We do not allow pets. We have access to WiFi but occasionally it does come and go due to the weather which is not in our control. We do offer dish network with many channels for free. We also have a land line for emergencies, however no over seas calls.
The cabin sleeps 6 during any rental period however we do allow two additional guests with space in a pull out couch with an extra cost per person per week.
We do encourage you to read the Island welcome guide booklet in the cabin which will give you all the information you will need including the WIFI pass word.
Vaughn Island is 30 mins from Graying and Gaylord, and 1 1/2 hrs from Traverse City and Mackinaw Island
In Lewiston about 10 minutes from Vaughn Island we the have Famous Tally's burgers and bar, Redwood steak house, Ice cream shops, Family Fare grocery store , laundry mat, Rite Aid, Subway, ACO Hardware , Merchandise Outlet, Dollar General, ATM machine, and bowling alley.
We are located 2 miles from Garland golf course 30 minutes from canoeing, kayaking and tube rentals on the Au Sable river in Mio, however you're welcome to bring your own Kayaks or canoes to the Island, it is a great lake for tubing as well.
We hate to see Summer end. As the weather gets cooler and we are on an island in Northern Michigan, we have to take our boats out of the water and winterize the house/cabin for the winter months.
We will ONLY be taking weekly reservations from Saturday to Saturday in February 2018 for the summer months with include June, July, August and the first half of September.
We DO NOT take weekend reservations or anything less than a 7 day stay NO exceptions !!

What a wonderful slice of heaven! We really enjoyed our stay ! Clean , fun and the tiki hut is great
tiki hut is so cool! Sue and Jerry are awesome and totally respect your privacy. We only saw them if we wanted something. I hope to stay again next year. We fished, had camp fires and relaxed in the tiki hut for 5 days.
We had an excellent stay. Hope to come back next time for a full week.
Quiet and peaceful retreat with lots of nice surprises.
What a great place for a get away! pontoon rental and tiki bar were highlights. Your own little paradise island retreat. Would love to visit again next summer. Thank you Sue and Jerry for a special weekend with our boys.
Had a wonderful time on Vaughn Island!
The property and amenities were exactly as described. The owners were lovely people who were there for us if we had any questions or needed pontoon transportation. I would definitely recommend this destination!
Great location and friendly renters
This is a nice, clean house in a great location. No real issues during our "girls weekend getaway". The only thing people should know is that there is a chance that the renters are staying right next door, which means the beach area including the tiki bar and bonfire pit are shared and privacy is lacking. If you're honey mooning here check with the renter first so you know (house next door is not visible in pic online). Kayaks were nice to have on site (free) and pontoon rental is only $40/day. It would have also been nice to know ahead of time that the Internet was down during our stay.
In response to your review it was well known that we stay on the island during your stay in case there are boat issues etc. My husband and I rarely use the tiki and beach area when guests are lodging so in all fairness that's an inaccurate comment. As far as the internet is concerned we have no control over the weather and on an island surrounded by trees the internet can come and go. Next year rentals will be weekly FYI as we allowed you to be here 2 nights !!!
A great place to getaway for a week with the family.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
The cabin sleeps 6 during any rental period however we do allow two more guests with space in a pull out couch for an extra cost of $100 per person for a week for a maximum of 8 guests, no exceptions . We have a weekly rate of 200.00 for our pontoon boat which includes the first tank of gas but after that it is the guests responsibility to purchase gas through the owners ( we have a special mixture of gas and oil which we prefer to mix so it is done properly). Pontoon boat must be returned with a full tank of gas upon departure.
