"Flag-up" is a warm and cozy, rustic, vintage cabin reminiscent of simpler times and tastefully furnished with a Vintage Ice Fishing theme.

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 "Flag up", a one room cabin that sleeps 2 on a full size bed. The vintage 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!

This is a dander free cabin No Pets Allowed  - for Pet Friendly Cabins please see Cabin #5 & #10

Upfront & Honest

  • Cabins are small, cozy and a bit crowded
  • Old restored windows and doors which can be drafty, especially the floors which results 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 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 cob-web or two, our site people check daily but one strong gust of wind or Charlotte (the spider) 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.

 

Cancellation Policy: One hundred percent (100.00%) of the total booking charges (less $50.00 cancellation fee) will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 365 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. For cancellations made within 365 days prior to the arrival date, no refund will be issued.
