Mackinaw Timbers – Cabin #1 – Nostolgic Cabin with Kids Loft

5 reviews
Cadillac, Michigan, United States







Our cabins are a cross between a rustic sporting cabin from the “road-side motel era” and a simple vintage boutique get-away.


Outside: Large grassy areas in the back and center of the property, picnic areas with tables and charcoal grills located at or near each cabin. Community Fire pit with log seating (firewood available onsite for small charge). Parking at the back of the property for your snowmobiles, boats, ORV’s or other sports equipment.


Snow Removal: Our grounds-keeper provides snow removal that clears the driveway, parking area and walkway to the cabin entry. Snow removal is triggered after any event causing 4″ or more of accumulation since last removal. There may be occasions where there are a few inches of snow on the driveway and walkway and can get icy.   A snow shovel and salt are available in the open garage.  Please be careful.


Must Know

Occupancy:  Due to fire codes and cabin size, occupancy limits are strictly enforced, additional guests are not allowed.  If more guests are found in your cabin  after 11 pm, a $100 charge will be assessed to your credit card, your guest will be required to leave (if a vacant cabin is available the extra guest may be able to reserve, pay and occupy that cabin) and you may be asked to leave with no refund.


Guest Access: Access is by electronic keypad. You will receive a text with the code and directions. We are in and out and always available by preferably text or email or phone. John our grounds keeper is in & out often as well, making sure everything is going well.  You may also see our family or our carpenter working on our other cabins or projects.


Inclement weather can occasionally result in power outages.
