Cabin #5 - "The Ellie Mae" - Pet Friendly
Size –1 Bedroom • 1 Bathroom 1 Bath • Sleeps 1-2
"The Ellie Mae" is a warm, cozy, vintage rustic 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 while still maintaining that rustic cabin charm.
The "Ellie Mae", is a one room cabin that sleeps two 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 a bar-size sink, microwave, counter high refrigerator, hot-pot and a vintage electric percolator. Also included is Wi-fi, Roku Smart TV with Netflix, a vintage game or two, perhaps some reading material, 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. Come, 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!

Upfront & Honest
- Cabins are small, cozy and a bit crowded
- Old, restored windows and doors can be drafty, especially the floors which result in uneven heat.
- We're in a rural area and the Internet isn't perfect but is very reliable, it may just need an extra few seconds to load Netflix.
- Located on a busy street and near an excavating company so can be noisy at times
- 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 cobweb or two, our site people check daily but one strong gust of wind or Charlotte (the spider) may decide to spin a web...
