Staying at Cedar Point Cabins

Our family recently took a winter ski vacation to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We stayed at Cedar Point Cabins Click here for more information.

Our hosts were amazing people. They had the cabin all warm and a light on for us as we arrived to the UP in the dark, after a "white knuckler" drive in several snow squalls.

 Our Cabin "Oak" already for us to move in.

 Your drive to a grocery store is a good hour or more away. Our hosts shared with us to bring what you want to eat and fill up with gas before you drive out of the last "big" town on the way up to the cabins.

 My lists of what to bring as we packed up for our winter getaway.

 The extras made it feel so cozy. A perfect cabin feel. Just what we were looking for.

 The lamps were one of my favorite extra touches to make it feel like a cozy cabin.

 Our view from the kitchen window.

Our view from our front door. We called the deer "Our Friendly Neighbors" because of the amount of snow the UP receives people feed the deer to help them survive the winter.

 Our cabin .. we hope to come back to visit soon.

  1. Carla how wonderful is this cabin. Love it. Glad you have such a great stay there. Your sweet little deer friends there to greet you too. Beautiful views from the cabin windows. What a lovely stay.
    Happy Friday.

  2. Lovely pics and the cabin certainly looks cosy. Lovely place to stay just not sure I'd want the white knuckle ride to get there! lol

  3. That cabin looks so cozy and comfy! I love it! Your deer neighbors were so sweet. It sounds like a magical trip!

  4. What a great winter get-away cabin. I don't blame you for wanting to return. The deers adds just the right touch.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. I never much care for cabins. But if this is what the inside looks like, count me IN!!! It is great, and does not really look like a cabin from the inside. Of course, I have never been in one. But nevertheless, this is sure not roughing it. I expected something from Little House On The Prairie.

  6. What a lovely looking cottage to stay in, looks quite spacious yet cosy and homely. How lovely to see deer.

  7. A lovely vacation, Carla. Just so you know, I am reading this post wearing a short sleeved t-shirt. Yes, it is that hot around here. It is a crazy world.

  8. Looks like a perfect, cozy place! I love it! The deer neighbors would have made it perfection for me!

  9. That is a lovely cabin. We have stayed in many cabins over the years so I can see how nice that one is.

  10. The perfect getaway. A home away from home! How did you find Cedar Point Cabins?

  11. What a wonderful place to vacation. Stay warm and safe in all that snow! Have a good week.

  12. This looks like a cabin from a country dream! I can't believe it comes with your own deer!
