Cabin #5 - "The Ellie Mae" - Pet Friendly
Size –1 Bedroom • 1 Bathroom 1 Bath • Sleeps 1-2
"The Ellie Mae" is a warm, cozy and rustic vintage cabin reminiscent of simpler times and tastefully furnished with a Vintage Dog Hunting theme. This is one of our two Pet Friendly Cabins.
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.
The "Ellie Mae", a one room cabin that sleeps 2 on a full size bed. The vintage Chippendale desk is perfect for writing, playing a leisurely game of solitaire or relaxing with a cup of coffee while enjoying a view of the Cadillac countryside. The mini kitchen comes complete with bar-size sink, microwave, counter high refrigerator, and an electric percolator. Wi-fi, Smart TV with Netflix, a vintage game or two, perhaps some reading material and all have a deck of cards and a cribbage board.
The weather-beaten walls of our 70 year old cabins are crammed with memories that induce an atmosphere of northern Michigan nostalgia to those who can relax and trade the pressures of the fast modern world for a few nights of simple, up-north hospitality.
Our family hopes you enjoy our cabins as much as we have enjoyed getting them ready for you!
