Clean and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and it was very peaceful even being off of the highway. It was great to have our own dock to be able to keep our boat in the water with a seating area to enjoy the views. Numerous lakes that were connected to give us a new place to enjoy everyday. Great sandbar and swimming area for the kids.

Great Fishing. Beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for a " Mom and Son" fishing adventure. The cabin has been remodeled and affords beautiful views of the lake. The fishing was fantastic! There are many fine restaurants in Manitowish Waters including

the Blue Bayou, which is within walking distance of the cabin.

We enjoyed our stay and would consider coming again next year! Thanks!

Super cute cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just as cute as the pictures! The sheets and towels were really new and high quality, as well as the mattresses (which I am picky about!). Nice and clean too. Kitchen well stocked. I know there's no dining room table, but our family of four loved having meals at the little breakfast bar island or outside on the picnic table.The cabin was so close to the lake, and we loved the sliding doors all across the dining room, living room, and master bedroom. Really great lake views. I would love to wake up to that every day. No central air, but opening the windows at night we got a good lake breeze. Great swimming off the dock for us and our kids (6 and 10). There were two condos on the property as well, but we all had our own fire pits, docks, and decks, so we had plenty of our own space. Washer and dryer were great too. Loved every second, even having no wifi was refreshing :) I'd totally recommend this cabin to anyone with 1-5 people. It's super cute.

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Rebecca's cabin. It has the perfect location and provides a beautiful view of the lake. You do share a dock with neighbors but it was not a problem at all. Very clean. Well stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook your meals. My only suggestion would be to provide a more comfortable dining area. A countertop with subpar bar stools were not great, especially since we had small children with us.

Great place by the lake

  • 4 of 5

We just returned after a week with our two boys (ages 16/18) and had a very relaxing time. The cabin was nice and clean (which you never can be sure of for a place up north) the beds were super comfortable, which made for restful nights, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Five sliding doors facing the lake (one in the master bedroom) provide plenty of great lake views and breezes. Place looks very nice with the updates, and the new dock was really nice. Loved having sturdy double Adirondack chairs on the dock for relaxing. The lake was good for swimming with a mostly sandy bottom. You have your own dock but it's right next to the dock for the attached condos, so it's not super private, but the condo users didn't spend much time on it so it still felt private. The cabin is angled a bit away from the condos so you do feel like you have privacy -- you have your own little ground-level deck and fire pit.

If you're looking for a remote cabin in the woods on a lake, this isn't it, as you have the 2-condo building on one side and neighbors on the other side and Hwy 51 directly behind you (so you hear traffic noise at times). But you still have good privacy. And if you want a nice, clean, comfortable place with great lakefront views (including a cool, little island) and easy access to boat rentals and the restaurants/activities of Manitowish Waters, this is a great option. We brought our own kayaks so didn't use the canoe. The lake was great for kayaking. Also rented a pontoon for a couple days from Grier's Pier, which is just across the bridge and easy to get to, and explored the chain of lakes. If we had brought our bikes, there were nice nearby trail options, too.

We also celebrated our 25th anniversary during this week and I was able to get flowers delivered had a great meal at nearby Smokey's restaurant. Little Bohemia was fun to visit, too.

All in all, it was a very relaxing place. It was nice to have the washer/dryer and dishwasher, too. The owner Rebecca was very responsive in answering questions before we booked. We met her before we left -- she's very nice.

My suggested improvements would be more comfortable/sturdy stools by the island in the kitchen for eating meals, and a table to set your coffee down by the double chairs in the living room/reading nook. A DVD player would be good to have for the rainy days. Internet access was spotty, too, which had our teen boys restless at times, but they survived!

So, yes, I'd recommend this cabin
