Begin your stay with a scenic, nearly mile-long winding drive that stretches through the peaceful, wooded dunes. The woods open up to the elevated view of Lake Michigan. The large deck allows you to walk along the front of the house and see Lake Michigan--you can even spot the Big Red lighthouse if you walk toward the master bedroom side of the deck.
Enjoya stroll along the private beach for as long as you'd like during your stay or make a day of it and swim in the cool water of Lake Michigan with our new kayaks and SUPs. When you're in the mood to relax, stay inside the newly remodeled cabin without missing anything through our lakeside windows. Wake Robin offers all the amenities of home and has been designed to replicate the cabin's original design.
The cabin can accommodate a total of 7 people with its 3 bedrooms combined and 2 bathrooms. After being a private residence for several decades, we are excited to share the magic of Wake Robin;s Writers Cabin for your family to relax, unwind, make memories and discover the best that Michigan's west coast has to offer.
Near Wake Robin's Cabin is the Main House. This property can be rented with the Main House for a discounted rate. For more information, please visit my properties listed or send me an inquiry.
The Cabin, which was originally the guest house and writing studio of Paul De Kruif, a noted author, was just remodeled in 2017.
