Charlie's cabin was perfect! We have a big family and Charlie's Cabin was able to accommodate us all. We arrived a for a relaxing weekend and that's exactly what we got. Charlie even has his own welcoming committee, his dog Duncan came running to give us a warm welcome when we got there. We really felt at home at Charlie's place. Very clean Cabin and Charlie had everything ready for us when we arrived. We even caught a few wide mouth bass and Norther Pikes using his paddle boat. The older kids took out the canoe and kayak for a bit too. We had a relaxing campfire both nights also. A wonderful weekend of fun and making memories and getting back to whats really important....family. It was truly a wonderful experience for all of us to stay at Charlie's place.
We had a delightful time, my wife and 3 kids and I. Charlie was always available at the main house about 100 yards away, but he largely left us to ourselves. The cabin provides a good measure of privacy, as it is separated from the main house by a large wooded copse of trees. There was plenty to do and many choices to while away the time: Make a fire out front in the fire pit; go fishing from the row boat, kayak or canoe; fish from the dock at the pond out back; relax on the rear deck; take the nearby path to the secluded beach on Lake Michigan only a 3 minute walk away (or the public beach 5 minutes away); drive to Manistee only about 4 miles away, etc. We also went fishing in Lake Michigan, off the lighthouse pier (and caught a huge bass). I was pleased that he had life preservers and all the boating necessities available. We all enjoyed paddling/rowing from his pond out to the larger lake (Bar Lake) about a 10-15 minute row away.
We really enjoyed staying at Old Mill Cabin. It's in a really beautiful location. Charlie has thought of everything. There is a fire pit in the front yard, a beautiful deck out back, even a row boat and some canoes out back with life jackets provided. We also enjoyed the private beach on Lake Michigan. Barr Lake was great for paddling, nature watching and fishing, while Lake Michigan was great for swimming. We brought our stand up paddleboards and has fun using them in both lakes. The cabin itself was clean, cute and rustic. I have three tall sons so it was nice that they each had their own bed. The kitchen was well equipped and there was also a grill we could use. Charlie was an excellent host and even offered to let us use his tools when we had to replace the axel on our trailer. I would stay there again.
Charlie keeps a nice place. The cabin has access to the water, and is a quick paddle into Bar lake. It's only a 5 minute walk to the Lake Michigan shoreline as well. Row boats and a kayak were provided. The fire pit makes for pleasant evenings, as well as grills for barbecuing. Fire wood was provided. The cabin is clean, comfortable, and very practical. All the amenities for a relaxing stay are provided. The location is great, only a 10 min drive into downtown Manistee, less than an hour south of Sleeping Bear Dunes, 30 min North of the Nordhouse Dunes. All in all a great place and I hope to return.
