Overview

Photos and Description of the Watersmeet vacation cabin rental

3bd/1ba Sleeps 6 in bedrooms (+4 roll-away)

PLEASE BE SURE TO HAVE ACCESS CODE TO CABIN BEFORE DEPARTURE FROM HOME AS CELL SERVICE IS WEAK AT THE CABIN! This is a 3 bedroom, 1 bath authentic log cabin. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed, bedroom 2 has two twin beds, and bedroom 3 offers twin bunk beds. There is also a pull-out queen sofa sleeper and two twin roll-way beds.

***PLEASE ENTER YOUR DATES FOR SEASON SPECIFIC PRICING. SPRING/SUMMER RATE $125/NIGHT. WINTER RATE $135.00/NIGHT. HOLIDAY RATE $155/NIGHT. RATES ARE BASED ON UP TO A FOUR PERSON OCCUPANCY. FOR EACH PERSON OVER FOUR, ADD $10 PER PERSON PER NIGHT.***

The home can be heated with central furnace heat or fireplace. Each bedroom also has an electric stove heater for personal comfort. There is no air conditioning at this time.

The main living area is an open floor plan, with the kitchen separated from the rest of action only by an island bar. This makes for easy entertaining and ensures that even the cook is not left out of the action. The living room, dining, kitchen, and bedrooms 1&2 have open ceilings with beautiful exposed log beams. The ceilings are walls are closed, so you can expect privacy and quiet when the doors are closed!

Open the sliding glass doors and step outside onto the patio and you will find four inviting Adirondack chairs just beckoning you and a good book or a pair of binoculars. Down on the flat next to the river you will find more Adirondack chairs and a fire pit for those cooler spring and fall evenings.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1) IS THE CALENDAR UP TO DATE? DO YOU HAVE AVAILABILITY FOR OUR DATES?

*YES, the calendar is always up to date! If it says that it hasn't been updated for a few days, that just means that we haven't made changes to it recently. There is not another calendar anywhere. If it says we are booked, we are booked! If it says we have an opening, we'd love to have you stay with us!

2) DO WE NEED TO BRING OUR OWN FIREWOOD?

*YES, you should bring your own firewood. There is a woodshed that *may have* wood in it. If there is some left, you are welcome to use it. However, we are having an ongoing issue with theft of the wood by both guests and an undetermined third party so when it's gone it will not be replaced. ONLY the fireplace and fire pit are approved for fires. The wood stove is non-functional and may not be used.

3) ARE TOWELS AND BEDDING PROVIDED?

*YES, both towels and bedding are provided.

4) CAN WE HAVE A PARTY AT THE CABIN? CAN WE SMOKE?

*NO, under no circumstances will smoking or house parties be allowed. Large family reunions need to be discussed in advance.

5) DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN COFFEE AND FILTERS?

*YES, you need to bring your own coffee and filters. There is a Mr. Coffee brand coffee pot if you would like to use it.

6) IS THERE ENOUGH PARKING FOR MY VEHICLE AND TRAILER?

*YES, there is plenty of parking. The driveway goes in a huge circle so trailers do not need to backed in and turned. There is room for at least 10 trucks with trailers, but of course there will never be that many, as parties are not allowed!

7) DO YOU HAVE A GRILL? IS IT OPEN IN THE WINTER?

*YES, there is a charcoal grill available but depending on the depth of snow it may be hard to access in the winter. There is also a gas grill on the back deck with a spare propane tank in the front closet(usually). The spare propane has 'disappeared' several times, so if you definitely want to grill it is safest to bring charcoal.

8) DO I NEED TO BRING TOILET PAPER?

*There is an initial supply of toilet paper and paper towels provided. If your party needs a large amount, please bring additional paper products with you.

9) IS THERE A STOVE AT THE CABIN FOR COOKING?

*There is both a gas stove with an oven as well as a microwave. There is not a dishwasher and guests are asked wash any dishes that are used.

10) DO YOU HAVE INTERNET ACCESS?

*NO, we do not have internet access and cell access is limited at the cabin depending on your carrier. (Owner Nikki has AT&T and she has little/no coverage at the cabin. Owner Mark has Verizon and his coverage is better but not great.)

11) WHAT ABOUT WILDLIFE?

*YES, there is plenty of beautiful wildlife in our area. There was a bear sighting at the cabin in 2014 due to guests leaving trash outside instead of in the bear-proof receptacle (not allowed!). Whitetail deer and wild turkey are the most common visitors. This is a cabin set on 80 acres of otherwise undisturbed pure Michigan wilderness so this of course an abundance of wildlife including but not limited to whitetail deer, rabbit, fox, coyote, otter, mink, turkey, grouse, etc. Always observe from a distance and exercise common safety sense. In addition, it is normal in northern Michigan when the weather starts to become cold that wildlife will start seeking out warm areas to winter. On occasion particularly in the fall, we will have a field mouse or two that tries to make his winter home in the cabin. Again, this is not a reflection on the cleanliness of the cabin but a normal annual occurrence in the northwoods. We do have repellent stations in place but one still may be seen on rare occasion. Black flies and mosquitos are other common pests in the northwoods and you may see some in the windows, in particular if the doors have been left open without the screen.

Of course if you have other questions you are always welcome to contact us.

Simpler Times Cabin is located on 80 secluded acres in beautiful Watersmeet, MI. There are an abundance of activities in the area, or ample opportunities to just sit and relax.

The Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River crosses the back yard for immediate access to fishing or canoeing, and the snowmobile trail crosses the driveway - no need to go anywhere to access the trail!

In the area, the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Chippewa offers a beautiful casino complex with gambling, bingo, golf, and restaurant. Bond Falls, always a favorite, is close by as well. We have information in the cabin for those interested in the nearby Paulding Mystery Light, Sylvania Wilderness Area, canoe and boat rentals, cross country skiing, Watersmeet Trout Hatchery and Ottawa National Forest Visitor Center.

Within an hours drive you can see Old Victoria Mining Community, Caledonia Mine, Lake of the Clouds, Little Girl's Point, multiple downhill ski hills, ski jumping and many scenic drives. This is a great central base to see the western U.P.!
