True north woods cabin on Big Fork Lake amidst the pines. Enjoy a peaceful, natural style! "Twin Pines" was established in 1939, formerly run as a summer resort. This rustic cabin offers authentic wooden interior, stone fireplace, fun camp/lodge decor, room to sleep 6 (plus 2 on couches), all while listening to the whispering pines and the gentle waves against the shore. No immediate neighbors on either side, plenty of room to roam! Sit on the deck for a lovely view of the lake, travel down the original stone pathway for a campfire under the stars, or take a few steps more to the pier and boat slip on Big Fork Lake, a beauty on the chain of 28 lakes.
Our family has been lifelong summer residents of Three Lakes! We love swimming, skiing, boating, campfires, and just enjoying lake life surrounded by the pines and looking up at the starry sky.
Mary Beth Davies purchased this cabin in 1939
Very quant cabin on the shore of Big Fork Lake. The cabin is well stocked with everything you would need for an extended stay. Comfortable doesn’t even start to describe the layout and furniture. Every room calls for you to sit down, take a load off and enjoy the sounds of the wilderness and the lake. One of the most enjoyable things about the cabin is the history. It is well documented through pictures, old resort brochures and guest logs dating back to 1939…very cool to explore. We would book with them again!
This is a very hard review to write. We would prefer that this cabin remain a secret that only our family knows of but out of gratitude to the gracious owners, we feel obligated to write a review.
This is the perfect nostalgic retreat. Mementos that, while not ours, seemed to include us were everywhere. Surprises abounded... binoculars to better see the birds, cards in case you forgot them, toys available for toddlers, books for those that ignored the "no internet" warning, S'more sticks, flashlights, a row boat, a tetherball pole, an amazingly peaceful location... this is truly your grandparent's cabin, where you are always welcome, and cherished.
If you are looking for a hotel, this is not for you. There is no internet, no air conditioning and no room service. It also has a small shower (but warm and with great water pressure). What it does have is charm. Even though this is not your family's cabin, you will feel a part of its history. Quaint, cute, fun and charming, this is the cabin your grandparents had (or would have had).
The area is amazing, 28 connected and beautiful lakes that are great for all water sports. They also have on-lake boat rental and restaurants as well as land-locked restaurants and shopping, hiking and bike riding.
We had planned to go to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan but couldn't find an open location and we are so glad we ended up in Three Lakes.
We will definitely be back and hope to do so both in the winter (for snowmobiling) and summer.
VERY HIGHLY recommend (but don't tell anyone).
P.S. For those that are concerned, the Green Bay Packer fans in the area were tolerable.
