About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Come experience this incredible “get away” on pristine Deer Lake, “The Lake of Changing Colors.” The turquoise water makes you feel like you’re in the Caribbean. The cabin features a one level floor plan including one bedroom, one full bathroom, full kitchen, full laundry and spacious living/dining area.

The cottage is just 75 feet from the water, offers stunning views. The upper level deck creates a magnificent, bird’s eye view of Battleship Island and the surrounding lake while the lower spacious deck provides the perfect setting for picnics. The hard-sand lake bottom offers excellent swimming and water sports area. Canoe provided.

Deer Lake is known for world class muskie, bass, and walleye fishing. In the miles of state land you will find excellent bird hunting(pheasant and grouse) and white tail deer. There are four golf courses within 30 minutes and Suomi Hills, known for outstanding hiking and cross country skiing, is only a 10 minute drive. Other winter activities include ice fishing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.

This is the perfect place to spend your own private retreat!

Do you have a big group and need more room? We have a 3 bedroom/two bath cabin next door available. Visit VRBO Listing Number 229764.

Great cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for one week (in Summer) and we had fabulous time all week long. The lake is great (for swimming and Kayaking) and the two (upper and lower) decks are the coolest places to hand out with the family. We also used Kayaks that are available with the property. The owner is super responsive and very accommodating (as our plan changed a bit in the middle) . I would definitely rent this cottage again in future.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days at this cabin over the Memorial day weekend. What a beautiful spot! The cabin is very nicely appointed and had lots of room to spread out.

The multiple decks gave us many options to relax and we loved the use of the kayaks!

When we had questions our emails were answered promptly.

We decided to add a night to our stay and she was able to accommodate our last minute request.

The owners were wonderful and easy to work with. We'll be doing this again.

Delightful Cottage

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for peace and serenity, Deer Lake is it! The cottage is about twenty miles from Grand Rapids and is not difficult to find. It was outfitted with comfortable furniture, a great bed and a wonderful bathroom--especially the shower. Dishes and glasses were quite sparse. While equipment was available for kayaking, I did not use it but did enjoy the dock. Communication with the owner was easy and helpful. I do hope to return in the future.

Best cabin rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

Every year, we rent a cabin somewhere "up north," usually on the North Shore. We have rarely returned to the same cabin. Our stay on Deer Lake this year is most definitely one we want to repeat!! The cabin itself is the best ever. So clean and well-cared for, offering the charm of a cabin combined with beautifully artistic woodwork and all the modern amenities we could want, including an incredibly comfortable bed. Extra bonus points for the Britta water filter. Having access to the kayaks and row boat were an added bonus. The lake itself is stunning -- beautiful and calming to view, easy to get into (sandy, shallow), and pleasant for kayaking. A few motor boats here and there, but mostly quiet, even on the weekend. The two decks on the way down to the lake offer relaxation with a stunning view surrounded by beautiful woods. This is a place that is magical, and owner Shelley, although not on site, is accessible and responsive to all needs. We will be returning!

Most relaxing vacation we've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 rented this cabin for a 4 night stay. It is absolutely gorgeous! The water on Deer Lake is so clear & beautiful, and we really appreciated that there were 2 kayaks for us to use. We found that there was an abundance of stuff supplied, so you don't need to pack much. There was a charcoal grill as well as a gas grill, a washer/dryer, nice appliances, and so many lawn/deck chairs that we wouldn't have had to bring any with us. What you can't see in the pictures is that there are actually 2 decks. One up closer to the cabin and one further down by the water. So you can sit in the shade or catch a few rays, depending on your preference. Our neighbors were quiet and far enough away that we felt like it was just our family. You can hear loons like crazy! We also had families of ducks visit down by the dock. There is a really nice fire bowl on the concrete patio just outside the sliding door. And there was a fire pit out in the lawn area as well, but we didn't use it. We had our boat on Deer Lake for a few days, then put it back on the trailer to fish on Moose Lake, which is also nearby. (Actually, the boat landing for Moose Lake is closer than the Deer Lake landing.) My husband caught his first muskie on Moose Lake! The bed was comfortable, and our kids slept on the pull-out couch in the living room. There's wi-fi and cable TV as well. Super easy to pay/communicate with the owners. We will definitely stay here again! Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Congratulations on your Muskie! Isn't it amazing to have two of the state's most pristine lakes out our "front door?!" I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Please come again.

Wonderful Artistic Carpentry Throughout

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully hand crafted cabin. It is apparent this cabin was finished by an artist. Each piece of wood work and flooring shows master skills and creativity. A great lake with perfectly clear water, too!

Grand Rapids and Deer River are nearby for restaurants and shopping. Great location.
