    About this property

    Log Home On Wequas Lake, Dog-friendly, Free Boats

    The Wild Winds is a nature lover’s paradise all year round. We offer many trails for hiking and/or biking. Enjoy fishing, boating and relaxing on the lake and beach, just steps from your rustic cabin. Or spend time at our private pond (actually a small lake) nestled in the woods, where we have installed a dock for deep water swimming and canoeing. Or for a little more excitement the Wild Winds is only 7-8 Miles from world class golfing, shopping, restaurants and other sporting lakes. If you like to take short day trips you could go to Petoskey to see beautiful Lake Michigan, or spend your day at Mackinac Island. This log home, "Honeymoon Cabin" has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8-9 Or consider our other vacation rental at the Wild Winds: "Junior" cabin sleeps 6-10 and has a fireplace! (see homeaway.com #368462). The log homes are right on Wequas Lake, and our beautiful private lake is just a short walk into the woods. Both homes come equipped with satellite TV, washer, dryer, full kitchen and 1 bath. The price is the same for either log home: the basic rate is $645/wk or $125/night, and prime dates are $780/wk or $160/night. In July and August we rent by the week (Saturday to Saturday) There is $60 cleaning fee, and well-behaved dogs are permitted for a small additional fee. Thinking ahead to other seasons? The Wild Winds is a winter wonderland! Snowmobile trails start at the top of our driveway. Cross-country ski on our 60 acres of private trails, or visit groomed county trails only a couple of miles away. Ski downhill courses such as Treetops or Boyne Mountain, each only about half an hour away. Or simply enjoy the pristine beauty of our acres of pine forest in their winter frosting! There is room to park a trailer here.

    5/5 Excellent

      Great place

      We really enjoy our stay, the fall colors were amazing and the privacy the owners give you is excellent ..... we will definitely come back again

      4/5 Good

        Nice rustic retreat

        The cabin is a little on the rustic side. But perfect for what we were looking for. 5 guys on a golf weekend. Enough beds for us all, and comfortable. It is nestled in with the owners house, another rental and a 4th house on a private drive. There is a small lake right outside the door and some private ponds down the short walking trail. If you are looking for spotless modern accommodations, this isn't for you. If you want a more rustic cabin that still has heat, electricity, shower, etc this is it.

        4/5 Good

          Cozy cabin

          Had a great time lots of room for parking and the owners are very accommodating. Will probably stay here again

          4/5 Good


            5/5 Excellent

              Clean and quiet escape

              A great place for a family to enjoy some quality time together away from the hustle and bustle.
