Cabin #6 - "Wapashuwi"
A unique name of unknown origin. This 2 bedroom, 528 sq ft cabin is a wonderful size for a family to spend a relaxing vacation, camping along the shore of a beautiful 1900 acre lake in the northern lower peninsula of Michigan.
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 early 1950'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 528 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 10’x6’ enclosed porch overlooking the lake is the perfect area for spending a relaxing afternoon.
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.

Was a great stay with amazing views.
Everything was awesome!
We loved this quaint cabin by the lake. Such a great location. Woke up to a beautiful sunrise over the lake out our bedroom window. Life's simple pleasures are the best. This cabin is humble and exactly what we needed for our anniversary
Beautiful sunrise!!! Lovely, quaint, old fashioned, rustic cabin. Ritchie was a great host! We are already planing our next trip!
This was our second time staying with Ritchie. The cabin is located right on the water and had what we needed for our stay. Ritchie is super quick to respond to any and all of our messages. Thank you for another great stay!
We loved our stay at this cabin in Michigan! Comfy bed and cozy gas stove!
Great rusted place. Beds comfortable, fire stove toasted up the chilly cabin quickly, kitchen had enough to make things a rustic home in the cabin on a lake feel! What a find!
Cozy spot on a tranquil lake!
Great cabin. Very peaceful
We stayed just for one night and loved it! The lake was right at our feet and this place has so much to offer! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful place ❤️
Very cozy cabin by the lake, very beautiful. Ritchie is also very helpful in giving recommendations for places to visit nearby.
Cute cabin on the lake! Perfect distance to the Mackinac Island Ferries!
Great little cottage tucked away on Carp Lake.
After seeing pictures I was expecting lot more.
Very clear expectations. Awesome communication from Ritchie. Property is just as advertised. We had a great time
Super cute little cabin. The location was very convenient-super close to Mackinaw City. We stopped just for one night while we made our way to the U.P. There’s not a lot of yard but it’s right on the lake and our cabin had a cute little screened in porch off back to view the lake. Bud Ritchie was right on site and was quick to answer any questions we had.
The place reminds me of being back in camp. The log house is very pretty. However the view of the lake is absolutely amazing and makes the place so great.
Ritchie was helpful, even when he wasn’t around, he made it easy to get in touch, and help us out where we needed it. The cabin was very cozy and was exactly as stated in the listing. It’s also very close to many things worth checking out, only a 10 minute drive up to Mackinaw City, and it sits mere feet from a gorgeous lake.
I would certainly recommend staying here, it’s well worth it!
Great cabin! I love this place. It's Cozy and warm. You can see the lake right through the window. Thank you Ritchie!
Cute cabin close to mackinaw city. May is still early season as it was cold outside. Ritchie responds quickly to messages and accommodate the needs.
Ritchie was super great at communication and what was expected. We used the fire pit to cook both of our dinners and used the pots and pans supplied to make breakfast. The floors have sinced been taken out in the pictures it shows different furniture and flooring. Also beds and tables are on wheels(which makes sense for cleaning) if you move a lot in your sleep it’s hard to get comfortable. Something to also note is that this is a real cabin and I would make sure you bring everything supplies on Ritchie’s list.
nice rustic style cabin will be staying there again
Cozy cabin, easy check-in/out, great locationl.
Old style cabin with a true feel of simplicity and minimalism. Although the weather was rainy and messy, this cabin offer a great location for the warmer months or any other time that rain won’t be in the forecast! Loved it!
great location very relaxing for a getaway
This cabin was everything we could of wanted. It was extremely clean when we checked in. Ritchie met us when we checked in and made sure everything was ready. We will be booking again.
The best log cabin experience, so close to the lake you can hear the trickling of waves as you fall asleep
The tranquility surrounding Carp Lake is in stark contrast to the city life. It's SO quiet. Matching the atmosphere in this remote part of Michigan is the simplicity of the cabin. It doesn't seem to have changed from the time it was built, but there is a beauty all its own because of it. We had a great stay here.
Great location and great host. We were greeted upon arrival.
Great place to stay - reflects the charm of when they were built. The area is very quiet but easy access to anything you need. The best part of the cabin is sitting on the back porch and simply enjoying the lake. Highly recommend it.
It’s cute and nice. Easy check in. Perfect for a few days on a small lake. Good place to stay also, if you want to go to the Island!
If you want a camping experience then the place is fine. Cabin needs some work done on it and has some rodent issues.
The cabin is located on a beautiful lake and is a prime location for visiting Mackinaw and the UP. Ritchie was very responsive and accommodating. The cabin had a nice rustic feel and had everything we needed for our stay.
This is such an amazing place for families. Our family will always come back here.
Ritchie is a great Host, The place is Super Awesome for a weekend getaway, quite and calm. He was there to greet us although we were a little late in the night. Very close to Mackinaw and Headland Dark Sky park.
Will surely recommend for a nice and relaxing weekend!!
If you’re looking for a rustic cabin with a good view and on the water, then this is a great place to visit. The lake was just a few feet from the cabin. The water was shallow which was nice for the kids to play in.
Great place, amazing experience!
Another great stay Ritchie! Love the rustic cabins, just as described, beautiful view on to the lake! Looking forward to next spring.
This place is great! The view of the lake is amazing and the cabin is a great place to come back to from going around upper Michigan.
Host was pleasant and accommodating. Cottages are on a beautiful lake and it was very peaceful. I imagine in the summer months when you can do activities it is a blast.
I loved being so close to the lake and the gas fireplace was so cozy in the rain/snow. It was nice and clean inside and I appreciated the contact-less check-in and check-out. Richie is very accommodating and responsive to any questions.
This is a rustic but comfortable cabin. Nice, open living room and kitchen. Small bath, but the shower worked well, and great hot water. This would suit 4 adults well, or 2 adults and 3 children. Lovely place, literally steps from Carp Lake. Great value for the price.
We had a lovely stay. The cabin was rustic, no frills, not fancy at all. It was exactly what we were looking for at a very affordable price. Ritchie was a welcoming host who responded immediately to the one minor problem we had. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful lake side views, a super cool automatic fire furnace, and nice amenities. We loved our stay! We traveled into the UP, Mackinaw, etc and it was the perfect base camp.
Wonderful stay at the cabin! Beautiful views of carp lake! Walking distance to a local hometown bar with wonderful food! We stayed in March and our cabin was clean and toasty warm.
Highly recommend staying here... very cozy and great location.
Very close to the lake! The cabin is pretty bare but offers the basics. Another review said the cabin was cold but I found that the fireplace heater really kept the place warm! Almost too warm.
It was a great little cottage to stay at for the weekend. We would stay there again.
We enjoyed our stay and were glad to be able to bring our 2 dogs as well. Would have loved to stay longer.
Awesome location. Close to everything Mackinaw City has to offer whole having the enjoyment of bonfires and outdoor activities. Owner is super nice and available to help with anything any time. This was our second visit and it won’t be the last.
Absolutely loved the cabins! Backyard right on lake. Owner is very nice. Fire pit/ grills in backyard. Everything thing you need for a camping experience without the tent!
Cabins are rustic. The owner was very kind and helpful. Our kids loved fishing and caught perch, sunfish, bass and walleye.
Sheets were provided and a blanket. Cabin included some basic cooking items which was nice.
from $30 / night
