Default Cabin rentals

Looking for ideas on places with good size cabins or the end of August. Room to sleep atleast 10 with room for tents. Orv trails would be good, near by bars or good would be perfect. Lake near by on on the water would be the best.


Where should we look??

There are some pretty big cabins for rent on Drummond Island. I think the Drummond Island Resort is who handles all of that now.

We stayed in Grand Marias last year right in town behind the Brewery. There are trails in every direction plenty of sights. A camp ground was two blocks away and the week we were there they had their music fest. The out fitter across the road does canoe trips and Quads. The wife kids and I had a great time there.

Jose lake cabin rentals in south branch. Right on the lake which is super clear and quiet. They have some falt bottom boats for use by people staying there. Prices are great and you can ride to the trails. Also not far from Mio and you can ride to Bull Gap from south branch. You would need to rent more than one cabin but they are $75 and night full furnished and they have plenty of grills sitting around. Nice Bon fire pit near the lake a play ground for kids. There is a store that has most things you might need and gas. They have. Web site check them out. We state there a few weeks ago and rode all over including to Lake Huron. Also near the Au Sable if you want to float the river.

I noticed you were from bat city so I would guess you know the south branch trails. Sandy wide and I think there is a single track there as well.

What kind of riding do you want and how far are you willing to drive?

I don't care really. Some fast single tracks is what I'm into. Couple hours say 3 max since there is others going to.

Erin that is the exact reason Drummond isn't on the top of the list

Tomahawk trails are pretty good, Kinross is a Diamond in the rough... Sandtown over near Newberry is pretty good, or was at least... If I was looking to ride, those would be my choices, then just look for some cabins in the area.

I graduated from petoskey and rode the tomahawk trails every weekend as well as a hand f of private tracks. I'm done riding in that area.


Duece228. The reason I started this thread was we all wanted to stay in clear lake. Perfect area we all know it and I know the woods there. Bar behind us and all. Clear lake resorts doesn't have a cabin big enough to house us all and won't allow tents to be used. So they are out of the question unfortunately.
