Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath with full kitchen/laundry and stunning lake view.

This unique two bedroom cabin is like nothing you've ever seen or stayed at before. Located in the woods at the tip of Leelanau County, it lies on the shores of beautiful Cathead Bay - a natural, pristine, sandy bay with shallow water for great swimming, kayaking, and water sports. This is the getaway location with access to an inland lake for fishing, bird watching, and hiking. Miles of uninterrupted beach makes for pleasant walks searching for Petoskey stones or enjoying the ever changing shoreline, natural dunes, and area wildlife.

This distinctive cabin sleeps 4 with two Queen Beds. It includes a fire-pit, horseshoes, gas-grill, and an open deck that allows for awesome sunrises, sunsets, and star-gazing. Don't let your fantastic 'Up North' experience end with summer. This area is well known for its spectacular Fall Color Tour. You can enjoy being in the center of the amazing color changes with biking, golfing, hiking and wine tasting.

The Cabin at Cathead Bay is a place to take you 'Off The Grid' and enjoy a peaceful, affordable get away.

Why Cynthia Jackson chose Northern Michigan

This lakefront property was purchased in the early 1900's by the Bradley family and passed down to the current owner. The cabin was started in 1968 and became a summer working project for the entire family.

What makes this cabin unique

Clear days provide views of both North and South Fox Islands. Mackinac sailboats can be seen during the annual race. Not uncommon for sailboats to anchor in the bay overnight. Light from the Lighthouse can be seen at night along with excellent star gazing. This property has the best section of beach on Cathead Bay!

Peace & quiet & sunrises & sunsets & coffee on the porch & did I mention peace & quiet?

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cabin. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Walking on the beach, coffee on the front deck, and a time of intense quiet were enormously appreciated. It just was perfect, and yes, we're talking to the accountant, that would be me, about another trip next year there. 5-Star rating for Cynthia and Kevin!!

Lovely comfortable and private cabin in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a long weekend in early fall and found everything delightful. The cabin is spotless, well designed, and equipped with everything we needed. During chilly evenings the wood stove made the whole place toasty, with well maintained piles of dry wood just outside the door. The living room and porch look directly out onto Cathead Bay, which is steps away. The beach is lovely too, perfect for long walks. Definitely a place we'll return to.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay with perfect weather. The house is a great getaway if you are looking for quiet and seclusion. The house is thoughtfully designed and impeccably clean. The owners provide all amenities and very thoughtfully so.

Northern Michigan Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This cabin offers the best of a stay in northern Michigan with a spectacular view and all the amenities of home. We love to cook and the kitchen equipment is first rate. We've rented many places in Michigan and elsewhere and this is the cleanest (10 out of 10) we've ever had. The layout is unique with the appearance of a lighthouse or windmill and most of the interior space includes a view of Lake Michigan. We enjoyed daily walks on the beach and finding Petoskey stones, reading, relaxing, enjoying an evening fire in the fire pit (wood is included). The owners are very helpful and easy to work with. I read suggestions from prior reviews and believe all have been implemented. We loved eating at Fischer's (a long time local favorite) and 9 Bean Rows (a long time favorite of ours) in Sutton's Bay. I can easily recommend this cabin to friends and relatives (although part of me wants to be sure it's available when we return next year).

Awesome lake michigan beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for couples wanting private get away. Tucked away in the woods along the beach and owners respecting the privacy of their guests. Great spot for sitting on the beach, on the deck or around the fire pit chilling.
