Cabin #7 - "Waugoshance"
A hybrid word, combining the Anishinaabemowin word wah'goosh (fox) and the French word anse (cove). This 2 bedroom, 528 sq ft cabin is named after a nearby peninsula off the northwest coast of Michigan's lower peninsula.
This cabin sleeps 6, utilizing 2 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed and a futon in the living room. This cozy 528 sq ft cabin also includes a kitchen, living room, dinning space, bath and a spacious 9' x 6' enclosed porch overlooking the water. A perfect spot to watch the fishing boats go out with the morning sun. This Vintage Rustic cabin sitting on the shore of a beautifully serene lake, is one of a 7 cabin resort primarily designed for the camping & fishing enthusiast. This cabin was built in the late 1950's and shows every bit of that vintage character. A knotty pine interior creates an Up North camping style atmosphere. It's a little rough around the edges but holds the allure of days gone by. 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. It does not have air-conditioning and the electrical outlets may not be conveniently located, but you will love the authentic charm. The bathroom is simple, the shower is warm and the kitchen has everything to cover your basic needs. Pets are welcome for an additional fee of $25 per night / per pet, paid at time of arrival if not otherwise paid.

Ritchie's place is rustic and simple. He has a list of things to bring with you that is helpful for planning. We enjoyed the location and that there were 2 places to get carry out food very close by.
Excellent place, quiet, right on the lake. The lake is perfect with great views. The stars pop at night. Such a fun place. Ritchie makes you feel like family. Already planning to go back. Cabin was great.
Wonderful little cabin on Carp Lake. We had a lovely visit and Ritchie was there to greet us! The only negative was the shower, it definitely needs an update. Otherwise everything else was great!
Ritchie is a great host! This is my second time staying at his cabins and it’s like I was an old friend when I pulled in. He greeted me and made sure I had everything I needed. The fire pit and back porch is absolutely perfect for night and day time. Highly recommend this cozy cabins.
Great location, quiet and right on the water. The cabins are close together but that’s to be expected with this type of rental. It’s nice to have an affordable option that allows dogs. We found it to be clean and cosy-anyone complaining about that needs to understand that it’s a rustic *cabin*, not a fancy cottage. I liked the gas fireplace too.
Great stay beautiful location very close to mackinaw city
Our stay at Ritchie’s place was booked only a day in advance. Ritchie was there to meet and greet us and was a pleasant, communicative and a helpful host. We were not impressed with the cleanliness of anything. The bathroom is in bad need of improvements, an exterior door in disrepair that would would not close and floors that were gritty and dirty underfoot. We do not know about the other cabins, just cabin #7.
This cabin looked like it was in the middle of a renovation. Very uncomfortable shower. Not worth the money even though adequately clean. The surroundings resembled a junk yard.
Always would recommend the visit here
The cabin is nice for men to use for fishing, but not as a couple's getaway. The cabin needs updated.
Great stay super close to everything we wanted to do and see.
A quiet resting place near Mackinac Island
Loved it especially the view
My girlfriend and I both very much enjoyed our stay. The cabin was cozy and exactly as advertised. The indoor heating system was excellent. We loved being able to have a campfire outside overlooking the lake.
This was the perfect little cabin for me and my boyfriend to relax at for a few days. Richie had great hospitality and communication, and the cabin was homey and cozy. I definitely recommend booking a stay!
An authentic cabin experience with a fire pit right next to the lake! Loved the peace and quiet. When it rained, we stayed in and played cards, watched movies and enjoyed the cozy warmth of the cabin!
Cute little place right on the lake. Short drive to shops and attractions.
Came here for a great, quiet week away from the world! Really nice, cozy space.
Rustic but comfortable, glad dogs are welcome & the lake is amazing
Classy Rustic, complete with lakeview porch and Roku
Such a nice stay! Very up north feel. Beautiful views, basic amenities but had everything we needed. Great burger joint a quick walk across the street. Ritchie was super nice and had a pleasant and quick check in. Loved the pet friendly aspect. A little chilly in the bedrooms but very manageable. Would definitely stay again.
All in all, it was a good place to stay. We loved the backyard view overlooking the lake and sunrise. I was expecting a nicer bed, it’s definitely not meant for all and the blankets were so bad, I recommend bringing your own comforters. Overall look was okay, flooring was very dirty that we had our footware on during our entire stay.
Had a wonderful time and the cabin was perfect! Really enjoyed the location! Close to everything!
Great little cabin on the lake !
Amazing little cabin off the lake. Great spot if you wanted to fish without going very far. Great local eatery across the road. 10/10 would recommend!
It was so nice to get away for a couple days, we drove around to different areas during the day but we would’ve been just as happy just sitting by the fireplace all day. Would definitely stay there again!
Ritchie was great. Place was super cool. would rent again
Charming, clean, authentic old cabin dream in a great location.
An affordable accommodation not far from Mackinac City with access to Mackinac Island. Clean, friendly, beautiful lake view with rustic northern feel. Furniture clean, comfortable. You can tell cabins are being updated but it was perfect for what we needed.
My best friend and I take an "annual" trip every year. We always look for small, private, cabins with great access to the water. This place fits the bill. Ritchie's cabins are old and humble in the nicest way. Our cabin was clean and inviting. He even gifted us with some starter logs to get our fire going! We hope to return next year!
Place was okay and homie.
