Property Details

Cabin #1 - "Chickagami"
A Native American word meaning “camp by the lake.” Chickagami is a fitting name for one of the first cabins built in 1929 along the shoreline of this small vintage resort currently known as Lakeside Cabins.

This Vintage Rustic cabin, primarily designed for the camping & fishing enthusiast, is just one cabin of a 7 cabin resort. This cabin was built in the late 1920's and holds every bit of that vintage character. It may be a little rough around the edges but this authentic cabin holds the wonderful allure of days gone by. Electrical outlets would have been added a few years later and air conditioning wasn’t even thought of at that time. Those details won't matter to the outdoorsy kind coming for the camping experience where lake activity fills your day and evenings are enjoyed around the campfire. This charming cabin has a knotty pine interior and all the basics to create an Up North camping style atmosphere. A lifestyle one will appreciate becoming acquainted with.

All the cabins are lined up next to each other along the shore of a beautifully serene lake. This close proximity to other cabins have traditionally created a friendly community style atmosphere where guests mingle and create lasting friendships. This is the kind of place where your grandparents brought your parents, your parent’s brought you, and you are now bringing your children to create beautiful memories while spending a nostalgic vacation in a familiar old cabin.

This cabin is 431 sq ft and sleeps a family of 6 utilizing 2 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed and a futon in the living room. There's a kitchen with everything to cover your basic needs, a dinning space and a simple bathroom that includes a warm shower. The spacious 13'x7' enclosed porch overlooking the lake is the perfect place to enjoy your coffee and watch the morning sunrise.

Whether you are looking for a home base to camp at the lake or a base camp while you explore the area’s attractions, you will enjoy this cozy cabin and all its imperfections. More than anything, you’re gonna love the authentic charm and the carefree lifestyle that comes with camping Up North.

Pets are welcome for an additional fee of $25 per night / per pet, paid at time of arrival if not otherwise paid.


Bring your own supplies and comforts of home, as only the basics are provided.
Provided kitchen items include; sink, stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, basic cookware, basic cooking utensils, dinnerware and eating utensils.
A set of linens are provided for the duration of your stay that include; a bath towel for every member of your party, a hand towel & wash cloth at each sink, bed linens and blankets.
An ample amount of bathroom tissue is provided, however paper towel, napkins, and disposable dinnerware should be on your supplies list if desired.
You'll have your own campfire pit with a grate that can be placed for cooking. Wood is available on site for purchase.

Pets are welcome at an additional fee of $25 per day / per pet.

Great spot on Lake Paradise with a nice sand bottom and gradual slope out to deeper water. Boat docks are provided for every cabin, and the DNR boat launch is right next door with a nice concrete ramp and a free power washer to wash off your boat. From here it's an easy 10-minute drive to Mackinac City, but within walking distance, you have two good restaurants. Cabins are rustic and charming. Well worth your vacation time to stay here.

Ritchie was totally 'Jonny on the spot" when it came to us texting or reaching out to him for things we needed assistance with. It was comforting that he lived right there onsite. His manner was friendly but also kept to himself in a way that allowed you your privacy. The place was amazingly clean. It is, as per his description, bare bones in terms of amenities...so make sure you read his 'What to Bring' List thoroughly. Would def visit again.

Great stay all in all with a nice host, beautiful and peaceful view, and outstanding accessibility to the lake. Accurate description of rustic, but amenities of the bathroom, kitchen, comfortable beds, and smart tv were all enjoyed. Everything was very clean.
Appreciated being able to include the fur-baby members of our family with us.
Bring a long extension cord for the bedroom(s) if you need bedside electronics such as fans, lights, or CPAP machines, as one bedroom did not have any electrical outlet and one bedroom just had one. Cabin did get warm while we were there, so a fan is a must-have in the bedrooms.

Great location. Fair value, which could be greatly enhanced with some capital improvements to windows and doors. Absent lakefront location, cabin would not command price.

We had a wonderful time staying at cabin number 1. The host was very accommodating and answered all questions we had! Everything we needed was there. It had a beautiful view of the lake. Very rustic and simple so make sure you are into that before booking. Overall it was a great first family vacation with our 11 month old!
We would definitely book with him again!

Ritchie was a fantastic host! Our stay was a last-minute change of plans dues to inclement weather, and it couldn’t have been a lovelier experience. Lakeside Cabins is right off MI-31 and super conveniently located to Mackinaw City, Big Mac, and all the fun touristy things that northern Michigan has to offer. The 1950s-era cabins are a little weathered and worn, but that adds to their charm. Clean, cozy, and a fabulous view of the lake. We’ll be back for sure.

Cute and quiet cabin with all the amenities to disconnect but still enjoy a wonderful getaway. This was my second time staying and I would recommend staying here. For those who are not familiar with the area bring all you need because the nearest grocery store or gas station is over 15 minutes away. The seclusion is also what makes this cute cabin wonderful.

CRUCIAL INFO: don't forget to unlock the back door before you go out!

More interesting info: this is a wonderful cozy spot right on Paradise Lake shoreline. The sunroom is perfect to sit and have a meal if it's too chilly outside. There's an amazing fire pit and dock to walk out on. The cabin is nice and roomy, and all the essentials are included.

It's away from the hustle and bustle of Mackinac enough to be quiet and peaceful but close enough to get to in 10 minutes.

Our host Ritchie was absolutely amazing! He met us at check in and offered firewood and anything else we might need. He was very available and super responsive and have us great local recommendations. We'd definitely stay again on our way up north!

Ritchie was a very responsive host. Everything in the cabin was just as promised. Ritchie has obviously given a lot of thought to what is essential for a comfortable stay. So even though the cabin was simply furnished, all appliances were in great working condition, we had everything we needed and were especially grateful for the wifi and the powerful pro plunger.

The cottages are rustic as advertised and they are small. We needed a place at the last minute during the busy season so it worked out perfect for us. The cottages are right on the lake and the lake is beautiful. If staying for several days I could see how the noise due to the close proximity of the cabins to each other could be an issues as some reviews indicated.

The cabin was nice and comfortable, a little tight for our big family (2 adults, 4 children and an infant) but worked out fine. Ritchie was responsive and friendly. The location is very close to Mackinac Island if you plan to visit there. Water in Paradise Lake is very clean and we enjoyed watching sunrise right from the cabin. The price was a little high, but we booked only a week ago and it was the peak of summer vacation season.

Lovely cabin about ten minutes from Mackinac City and the ferries! We were a family of five and the rooms and beds accommodated us quite nicely.

Perks to enjoy:
-Kitchen and appliances
-Tv with different apps
- Beautiful views!
- fire pit and dock
- great communication with Ritchie
- comfortable beds

Cons:
- the hot water seemed to run out after the third person but during the summer time, it’s not quite an issue

These warm and cozy villas offer one of the best early morning/sunrise views I've seen. Just 10 mins away from Mackinac and it's hustle and bustle, so enjoyed the calm without being far from the city. Huge thumbs up. Lake is 10 feet from back door and property offers boat/kayak rentals. Our villa also had a fire pit and was well stocked with various barbeque accessories.

This was a cozy cabin on a beautiful lake! It was accurately described and comfortably slept 2 adults, 2 teenagers, and 2 small kids. It is right on the lake and had a small beach/sand area where my little ones were able to dig around. Ritchie was on-site, and was warm and welcoming! He had kayaks, canoes, and a smaller boat available to rent. It was an ideal stay for us while we were stopping on our way to Pictured Rocks for a trip to Mackinac Island (less than a 10 minute drive to the ferry). There were also a few local restaurants within walking distance. We would definitely come again!
