Your one-of-a-kind, retro, cabin basecamp in Cadillac, Michigan

A step back in time, with a twist! 


Our cabins? Picture-perfect, '40s charm with just enough modern touches to not make you miss Wi-Fi too much (don't worry, we do have fairly reliable Wi-Fi). It's the Northern Michigan getaway you didn't know you needed.  Cozy, retro, and unapologetically nostalgic.


Book your stay online now for a dose of simple pleasures and a hefty side of "up north" vibes. Fair warning: it's all about the cabin life here, and we're miles away from being a "proper" resort.  Our "no frills" vibe is part of our charm but it's not for everyone.


Mackinaw Timbers Cabins: Retro Cool with a Modern Twist

Ready for pretense-free nostalgia with a dash of modern comforts? Book your cabin getaway online now. No fluff, just the good stuff.

Experience a different kind of "Up North" Charm 

Leave the hustle and bustle behind and step back into a simpler time. Reminiscent of a vintage motor court, Mackinaw Timbers is perfect for anyone in search of different take on "up north" Michigan charm and nostalgia.


We're a family run camp - literally - and we've thoughtfully restored a 1940's inn leaving much of the original charm, but that also means some leaks and creaks, ladybug & bumblebee visitors, maybe even a spider guest or two (they were here first)... if you're looking for a front desk and room service there are other options in the area that we'd be happy to recommend.  

A Unique Lodging Experience

Easy & Relaxing

Our cabins bookable online (complete with contactless check-in at the camp).  We're located on a (mostly) quiet, rural country road minutes from local attractions and events in downtown Cadillac, Michigan.

Unique, Thoughtfully Decorated Cabins

We did our best to capture our favorite parts of vingtage, northern Michigan cabin charm.  Every cabin has its own theme that we hope you'll love as much as we do! 

Modern Amenities in a Vintage Setting

Our guests enjoy up-to-date conveniences wrapped in the cozy embrace of vintage ambiance.

Pet-Friendly Accommodations

Our pets are part of our family too, which is why we offer two pet-friendly cabins (book cabin 5 or cabin 10 for a pet-inclusive getaway).

What Our Guests Are Saying

This was our 2nd visit to Mackinaw Timbers! We loved cabin #1 The Loft! The owner does a great job communicating before and after your stay! The cabins and the whole property is very well maintained! We will be back again!

We had three cabins with friends. Everyone was impressed with the cleanliness of the cabins. Very nice from start to finish. Owner contact was impressive the entire trip. Do not hesitate to stay here. We will return when back in area.

Absolutely loved the cabins, very clean inside. The campground is within an hour drive to Crystal mountain and Traverse city, would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
