Family fun !

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves ! The rustic cabin met our needs and reminded me of the cabins of my childhood vacations! The grandsons loved staying in the bunk house with Grandma and Papa! The beach is absolutely perfect for children! We enjoyed the kayak and rowboat, fishing , campfires, lots of laughter and made memories that will be shared for years to come!

relaxing away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such an amazing time at this cabin! It was just what we were looking for! The kids ( 8 and 5) had a fun time swimming and Because it was shallow and there wasnt any drop offs until you got out into the lake a ways it was also pretty worry free! The fishing was great! Just loaded up in the paddle boat and rowed out to where it gets deeper right in front of the cabin and fish away! Don't forget the net though because you never know when the big one will strike! ( It happened our last trip out and unfortunately we didn't have the net) it's a beautiful area and the area towns are all pretty awesome! Our favorite was Grand Rapids! Definitely plan on coming back in the future!

Great weekend!

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I had a girls' weekend at this cabin and had a great time! It was clean, organized, and the kitchen was well-stocked. The lake was quiet. There are cabins nearby, but all the trees provide a good buffer between you and the neighbors. We didn't see our neighbors the entire time. You can walk out to the middle of the lake (it's shallow and clear). We'd definitely come back!
