Photos and Description of the Backus vacation cabin rental

A lovely 3 bedroom cabin nestled in the pines on a large lot. It is a tranquil, serene setting for a family or families to enjoy a vacation. There is a large family room with a vaulted ceiling looking out at the bay. The cabin has an modern eat-in kitchen or you may barbecue outside under the stars while the kids make some 'smores' at the fire pit. There is a deck and a screened in porch. Our bathroom is a 3/4 with a shower along with a clothes washer and dryer...if you really get the urge!!!!!

Lake Ada is a 1200 acre lake that offers all water sports and great fishing. There is a public access ramp just a five minute walk away and you can tie your boat up at the dock. We have a sandy beach that slopes gently into the lake, ideal for small children.

There is over 30 miles of state forest located directly behind the cabin, which provides excellent hiking, dirt biking, a nice stroll in the woods as well as privacy.

At night, you may sit out at the end of the dock and hope to get a view of the Northern Lights or look up to see the Bald Eagle high over the bay.
