It is our family's home away from home. Perfect for up to 8 friends or family group. Lake access with 110 ft.dock on property. Feed and cast for blue gill visible off dock. Last year my son caught a 22 inch bass off the end of the dock. Catch your own bait fish. Locals claim that the best fishing site in the lake is within rowing distance from our cabin, or rent our motors for a longer excursion to the mouths of the Upper and Lower Millecoquin River. Northern pike, large mouth bass, small mouth bass, yellow perch, black bullhead and many other species present in lake. Rowboat available for your use. We have plenty of life jackets. Motor available for additional fee. Bring your own motor or launch your boat at the public boat access located just outside the property. A house boat from D&D Grocery store in Engadine can be rented for an entire day of water fun on Lake Millecoquin. 2 kayaks available. Kayak through fields of water lillies and water hyacinths. You can explore the Upper and Lower Millecoquin Rivers seeing many species of water foul and other wildlife. Private bird sanctuary located north of cabin which attracts loons and other species. See a pair of bald eagles which nest near the mouth of the Upper Millecoquin River or the Trumpeter swans which nest near the lower river. Kayak to our favorite sandy bottomed swimming hole located 100 feet south of the cabin. Borrow our old bikes, or bring your own, going down secluded lane and past many local farms in the neighborhood. Our kids like to bike to Engadine,(2miles) for ice cream. You may pass some Amish buggies. We have several Amish neighbors. Check out the Amish Quilt Shop located down the road or Saturday bake sales. Enjoy beautiful fall colors. View local wildlife including deer, fox, otters,and painted turtles. My kids catch frogs and turtles from our dock using the fishing nets in our garage. Roast marshmallows or grill using our outside fire ring and charcoal grill. Wood included. Back yard provides ample space to set up soccer or volleyball nets.

About the area

Take I-75 across the Macinac Bridge and drive 50 miles west on scenic Rt 2. In Naubinway turn right on Naubinway Rd, left on Hiawatha Trail, right on Indian Trail, and right on Lake Road. Entrance to property located at the Lake Millecoquin Boat Access Site. Turn right on gravel lane. Go past one other cabin. We are located at the end of lane. Three miles north of Naubinway, Michigan. One mile east of Engadine, Michigan and 20 miles south of Newberry, Michigan. Blue skies and fresh air are what you notice first when you visit The Upper Penninsula of Michigan. Drive over the Macinac Bridge and you feel like you are driving into another world. Swim in some of the public beaches of Lake Michigan which you will pass as you take route 2 to our cabin. With pristine white sand and so much less crowds than the ocean fronts, we believe that these are some of the best beaches in the world. We also recommend the Gould City Beach. Every year my family enjoys an excursion to Lake Superior. Although the water is chilly, the beaches are even more spectacular than lake Michigan. A favorite destination is Ausable Falls in Grand Marais where we take the dune trail down a cliff of sand to the shore of lake Superior. My kids can't get enough climbing up and down this wall of sand while I walk the beach to the mouth of the Ausable river. The beach is covered with jewel like rocks and the water is bluer than any I have ever seen. We take the trail up river to the spectacular Ausable Falls where we climb the steps back to our car. Explore the entire National Lake Shore bt taking the newly paved road from Grand Marais to Munising. Castle Rock in Munising is also spectacular. With our central location in the Upper Penninsula, you will have easy driving distance for day trips at Macinac Island, Soo Locks, Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore, Seney National Wildlife Sanctuary, Tequamina Falls. Over the years my family have visited all of these beautiful, historical and interesting places and can recommend all of them to our guests.We are only 20 minutes from Garlyn Zoo and 30 minutes from Oswald's Bear Sanctuary. The Snow Mobile Museum in Naubinway is only 10 minutes from us. Enjoy dining at many local establishments, Pool table at the Pine and Dine in Engadine, golf, hiking, ATV trails. There is a great fresh fish market in Naubinway. Casinos in Munising, Saulte Ste Marie, and St.Ignace. Hunting in season in designated areas.

“Brings back the old memories of Lake Millecoquin”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2017

My family used to own a cabin on Lake Millecoquin River. The smells the lake flooded back amazing memories. We had so much fun kayaking, boating, relaxing ,fishing. What an amazing family to share their beautiful cabin. Thank you so much!

“Secluded U.P. Cabin”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2016

Located in the central U.P. this makes a great base camp to explore or stay home and relax. Nice lake, good fishing.

“Private fishing cabin”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

Loved it, it was remote and private. We used to kayaks to explore the lake and had lots of fires down by the lake the best part was waking up and just enjoying the peace and quiet while having my morning coffee. It's bot luxury but would rather be away from it all in a small town. And you can't beat the price.

“Lake Millecoquin's Hilton”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2016

Although some might find this cabin rustic in comparison to the Hilton's Hotels, I find it to be the Hilton of Lake Millecoquin. We have stayed at this cabin several times and it never disappoints with it's rustic charm. There is good fishing to be had on the lake and when the weather doesn't cooperate it is close to many of the UP's great attractions. There is also a extensive collection of movies and various games if you just want to relax at the cabin. You won't find high end facilities but you have everything you need for a true up north experience. This place is somewhere to just get away from it all where you can make your vacation what you want it to be "a time to remember". As always Beverly and family are just the nicest people to work with.

“Great vacation spot!”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2015

Had a great time. So many lakes in the area for fishing. Also, the Oswald bear ranch, Tahquamenon Falls and Whitefish point are all within easy driving distance. Cabin was great, tons of movies to watch at night. Boys really loved the kayaks, were in them for hours each day. Found turtles, frogs, my older boy even netted a pike! Thank you Beverly!

“Lakeside Gem”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2014

Great place to get away from it all, we relaxed and fished to our hearts content. The weather didn't cooperate at times for fishing so the extensive collection of movies helped pass the time. Everything you need for a upnorth adventure is in the cabin . Thank You Bev, you're a wonderful person to work with. George

Owner's reply: Thanks George, We are glad that you had a good time.

“fisherman's cabin”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2014

very accomadating. beverly is very easy to work with. many, many extras located at cabin to help enjoy fishing, boating and kayaking. engadine is only a few miles away and has everything you need-gas, groceries, bar/diner, ice cream. the cabin is located in a very private location and access to the lake is easy. however, the cabin has only one bedroom with a door and our two yr old grandson needed quietness to be able to fall asleep early and that limited our evenings. also, bedding and quilts should be refreshed.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. We asks guests to provide own bedding, because we have no washing machine and are there only twice yearly to change bedding. The cleaning lady makes beds but cannot change sheets weekly. Our 2 bedrooms upstairs are only semiprivate in a loft which opens to our great room. I want people to know what to expect when they rent our cabin

“Family Hideway”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2014

We all had a great time... The cabin was cozy. Fishing was great and everyone enjoyed some nice fish dinners. Lots of mosquitos when we were there so bring repellent. Deer came right up to the cabin and the loons sang songs...

“Great place, great memories”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2014

Our week spent at the Fisherman's Family Hideaway is full of great memories. First and foremost, Beverly and her family were warm and gracious in their communications with us, as well as very accommodating--which we appreciate since this trip brought us back to our childhood summers spent on Lake Millecoquin. The cabin really is a hideaway: no direct neighbors and hidden among the trees and reeds--but with a great view of the lake from the front lawn nonetheless. The cabin itself is very cozy and comfortable, and it seemed actually bigger than it appears in the photos to us. There is ample couch space for everyone to relax and the dining table can seat at least eight. It has almost everything you could need for cooking inside or out. We rented a pontoon boat through a local (Dave Kosar, owner of D&D and Stars and Sand), and we were able to tie it right to the cabin's dock. We kayaked on, fished in, and motored around the lake every day. We also enjoyed the fire pit in the evenings, and even in the chilly mornings. A truly great experience! Thanks again to the McNeeley family!

Owner's reply: Thanks Mary, We are glad that you had a good time.
