"The Loft" is a warm and cozy, rustic, vintage expanded one room cabin which is reminiscent of simpler times. This tastefully furnished vintage nostalgic cabin features a kids loft. Sleeps 2 Adults & 2 Children

Our cabins are a cross between a rustic sporting cabin from the "road-side motel era" and a simple vintage boutique get-away. Our family owned camp aims to provide the best elements of country lodging with updates but still maintains that rustic cabin charm

This expanded one room cabin includes a full-size 4-Poster Log Bed on the main floor and a loft above that sleeps 2 children on a full-sized mattress. Max weight in loft is 250# and is for older children. By allowing your children in the loft, you accept all liability for any incidents, falls, accidents, mishaps and/or deaths that may occur.

The Loft also has a small play area featuring vintage toys and games. Please note there are small pieces that may be choking hazards, you are accepting responsibility/liability if you allow your children to play with these toys and games.  Please do not take any of the toys or games outside of the cabin

The small, furnished Kitchen comes complete with 2 burner gas cook-top, small sink, microwave, dishwasher in a drawer, 7.6 cu ft retro looking refrigerator with freezer and an electric percolator coffee maker. The vintage Formica table is covered in oilcloth tablecloth and the four chairs are perfect for your meals, catching up or playing cards/games. A small variety of games are provided for you in the cabin. A wall mounted 43" Roku TV that includes Netflix is in the bedroom area.

Upfront & Honest

  • Old restored windows and doors which can be drafty, especially the floors which results in uneven heat.
  • Located on busy street
  • Cabins are small, cozy and a bit crowded
  • Water heater is small so short showers are a must
  • We are in the country next to corn fields and an excavating company,  so there may be dust and a cob-web or two, our site people check daily but one strong gust of wind or Charlotte may decide to spin a web . . .

Outside: Large grassy areas in the back and center of the property, picnic area with tables and charcoal grills located at each cabin. Community Fire pit with log seating (firewood available onsite for small charge). Horse shoes, croquet and other vintage yard games are just steps away from your cabin.

Guest Access:

No On-site Office: We are in and out and always available by preferably text (or email & phone). John our grounds keeper is in & out often as well, making sure everything is all ok. In off-seasons, you also may occasionally see a member(s) of our family or our carpenter working on projects around our property.

The property is also protected and monitored by exterior security cameras

Door codes will be available starting 1 to 2 hours before your scheduled check in time.

Parking:  Parking for 1 vehicle right in front of your cabin (see Site Plan).  Parking is also available at the back of the property for your snowmobiles, boars, ORV's or other sports equipment and can be reserved when you book your cabin.  

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.

No Smoking On Site: No smoking of any kind is allowed on site with the exception of the Smoking Area in the far back left (SW) corner of the property, by the small lighted post with a bucket hanging on it. If you smoke anywhere else on the property a fine of a minimum of $250 will be deducted from your credit card.

Cleaning & Disinfecting: We at Mackinaw Timbers have always taken cleaning very seriously. Our normal routine is to wash all bedding, including comforters, blankets, sheets, towels and rugs at every turn. We also keep protectors on our mattresses and pillows, which are disinfected between guests. We are extra careful not to shake any linens as we remove them from the cabin. Additionally, we are spraying all linens with disinfectant before removing them. All surfaces, including remotes, doorknobs, light switches and countertops are cleaned and disinfected. Between guests, we disinfect curtains as well.

Finally, no team member will be on-site if they have any symptoms of Covid-19 or any other illness- be it fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat etc. You can rest assured that we have always looked out for our guests, cleaning crew, site team and family and continue to do so.

 

Cadillac is home to so many great things to do and see in the great outdoors. Our rolling hills, winding rivers, diverse lakes, and varied trails all connect throughout a half-million acres of National Forest for miles of fun. However, don’t forget about all the awesome things to do and see that isn’t on a trail or on the water. Our electronic guidebook has multiple sections of things to do in our area.
