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.

Ritchie is such an amazing host!
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.
Great stay for campfires, s’mores, fishing, and that good ole fashioned cabin feel. Thanks for having us!
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.
Great little cabin getaway for a family. Enjoyed watching the ducks and woodpeckers. Comfy beds too.
Beautiful rustic cabins needs a few updates but the location and the host were amazing will stay here again.
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!
Great view of the lake, nice fire pit, very small and quaint, great place to stay if your breaking up a long drive
This is a nice cabin located in a great location!
A great stay- loved the location on the lake.
The cabin was small but clean and right on the water. It had everything we needed for our short stay. We were close to Mackinaw City and Headlands Dark Sky Park so it was perfect for us.
We had such a wonderful time. The view was inspiring and beautiful, the weather was absolutely perfect and the accommodations were fine. We were very impressed with how wonderful it was and how nice the host was. Would definitely recommend them.
Basic cabins, but they have everything you need. Very friendly and accommodating owner. Perfect view of the lake! We will go again.
Owner was friendly. My husband and I would stay there again but was hoping it was something I was looking for the whole family.
