Property description

Plan your getaway to this cozy cabin located on a peninsula with a 180 degree view of beautiful Maple Lake. Whether you're looking for a romantic weekend,a cozy winter getaway or fun filled summer vacation, Maple Leaf Cabin is your lakeside retreat!

Maple Lake is a 172 acre, mile long all sports lake just 2 hours from both Chicago and Detroit, with easy access from I-94.

Recently remodeled and ready for your visit, Maple Leaf Cabin features a bedroom with full sized bed and a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room. The cabin also has an indoor dining area, modern kitchen and bath, laundry and an outside enclosed hot shower (in addition to the regular ceramic tile shower inside). The cabin features a huge screened porch with floor to ceiling views of the lake. Enjoy meals from the large square picnic table, take afternoon naps, play board games or read by lamplight.
The cabin also has wonderful outdoor space, with a deck, fire pit, picnic table and plenty of adirondack chairs to relax and enjoy the view of the lake while sipping morning coffee or sampling a glass of local wine.

Dine out in local restaurants and pubs or create your own feast from local farmstands and (if you're lucky) your own catch of the day! Fish off the seawall or paddle the lake in our canoe. Or cruise the lake on Miss Maple, our pontoon boat--great for fishing, basking in the sun or sipping cocktails at sunset (extra charge applies). Hunt for antiques, stroll a few blocks for ice cream or a movie in Paw Paw's vintage theatre ($3!) or visit a u-pick farm or local winery. Check out the microbrews at the Paw Paw Brewing Co.--don't forget to bring the growler from the cabin for a refill. Or relax and do nothing...It's always great to get away to Maple Leaf Cabin--and don't forget your pets!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We love getting away and enjoying time at the cabin. We like to relax on the porch, sip wine while taking Miss Maple on a spin around the lake, then throw some steaks on the grill. When we're not antiquing or gardening, we play with our chocolate lab Riptide--he loves to swim and fetch toys from the lake. Come visit the cabin--you and your dog will love it too!

Why the Owner Chose Paw Paw, MI, USA:
We fell in love with the view of the lake--within five minutes of arriving we decided to buy it. We live in Chicago and can leave the City after work on Friday and still arrive in time to open a bottle of wine and fire up the grill--it's a great antidote to city life.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love to relax at Maple Leaf Cabin, whether reading on the screened porch, drinking coffee overlooking the lake or cocktails on the pontoon boat, Miss Maple, it's always a great getaway. The cabin is fully outfitted and Paw Paw has everything we need so it's not necessary to bring alot of stuff--just hop in the car and go. We love visiting the farmstands and farmers' markets for local produce but if we don't feel like cooking there are many good restaurants, from casual to fine dining, where we can grab a great country breakfast or enjoy a relaxing dinner right on the water. And there are always new wines to taste at the wineries--just a few short blocks away!
