Coleman's Cabin
We stayed at Coleman's Cabin for 4 nights. This was our second time at the cabin and everything was as expected. The cabin was clean and comfortable for the two of us. We enjoyed touring the area, relaxing on the deck overlooking the lake, and using the fire pit for evening campfires while watching the sunset. A nice, peaceful setting. Freshwater Vacation Rentals was very responsive and timely in providing information about rental procedures, arrival and departure instructions, etc. Overall, we had a great time at Coleman's Cabin.

Linda, our returning guests are our best review possible.  We're glad that you came for a 2nd visit, and that you enjoyed your stay.  Thank you for your kind words for FVR - it means a lot to us.  We hope to see you again in 20224!

Great Lake cabin
Small, private, on the lake…great getaway in the U P. Had a few woodpecker families each morning and evening. Good fishing for bass and panfish. Loved the sunset over the lake. Would stay here again.


Thank you for sharing your review James! That's so great that you even had a chance to get acquainted with the neighboring wild life, and get in some good fishing. We love knowing you enjoyed your stay in Wetmore, and hope to have you back!

Coleman's Cabin
The description of the cabin and property was accurate. Check-in and check-out process was easy and convenient. The setting is lovely and the cabin has a nice deck overlooking the lake. We used the firepit several evenings and watched the sunset over the lake. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Space was adequate for the three of us. We did some sightseeing, picked wild blueberries, and enjoyed our stay at Coleman's cabin.



Linda, thanks for taking the time to write this review.  It doesn't get much better than a fire pit at sunset.  Come on back next year to pick more blueberries!

5 stars
Spent 2 weeks here and will be returning loved the large deck area with 3 differnt types of grills to cook with, having a small washer and dryer, ceiling fans and other fans that all worked was nice on warmer days, and dock area was perfect for my young nieces and nephew to fish off of when they visited. We did not want to go home

Melanie, thanks for this great review!  We are glad that you had such a good time.  Next time, stay longer!

Colemans cabin
The coleman cabin had a very "homely" type of feel. Description was perfect. location was perfect for our 4 day stay to view pictured rocks and the techquamin falls. Lake was beautiful, and the cabin provided everything we needed for cooking, cleaning, sleeping, and pass time. Little instruction notes around the cabin were very helpful. We are very excited to come back to the coleman cabin in the future.

We enjoyed our stay
We enjoyed our stay at Coleman's cabin. It was very clean and larger then we expected. Though a better description of the loft entrance would be good. It was not an issue for our stay but not all people would handle a ladder style as well as others. The outdoor areas were nice with plenty of seating. We used the fire pit several nights and enjoyed the lake view. I would recommend this cabin.

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Jean, sitting by the fire pit is the best!  Hopefully you had some smores.  Coleman's Cabin is on East Lake and sleeps 4.  We appreciate your review and your recommendation.   We hope to see you back again.

We enjoyed it.
We enjoyed Coleman's Cabin. The cabin was clean and matched the online description fairly well, you do need to provide a better description or picture of the loft entrance. This was not a problem for us but could be for someone not expecting a ladder style scenario. The outdoor areas were nice also with multiple seating options and tables. We enjoyed watching all the woodpeckers and other birds. The yard is on a bit of a hill but provided a nice fire pit that we used several nights while watching the sunset over East Lake. Everything we needed was there plus some. The setting was nice and quiet while we were there. I can picture more noise in the summer but mid Oct there were not a lot of people on the lake. We would revisit this cabin. Thank you for a nice place to call home during our trip to the beautiful Upper Peninsula.

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Jean, we are so happy that you enjoyed staying at Coleman's Cabin.  Fall is a great time to be there.  This cabin is quaint and sleeps 6.  ATVs are allowed.  we will get a better description of the loft/ladder so that guest are not surprised when they arrive.  We look forward to your return.

Just What We Were Looking For!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Coleman’s cabin was just what we were hoping for! The location was great and the deck, lake, boat and fire pit were put to good use. The cabin had everything you would need. It was the perfect get away.

A cozy spot to stay
We enjoyed our stay at Coleman’s Cabin. The only issue we had was finding it with the written directions - there was no sign listing E. Lake Rd. In fact the sign was Florence!

Jereva, we are happy that you enjoyed Coleman’s Cabin. Located on East Lake, this cabin is quaint, and comes with a lot of special perks: electric grill, propane grill, charcoal grill, picnic table, fire pit, duck boat, 2 patios, and a gorgeous view!  Perfect for relaxation.  Thanks for the heads up about the directions.  We'll make that change.  We hope to see you again!

Nice place
The house is nice. The hot water heater worked well enough to handle 4 quick showers. I liked the location, relatively quiet. 10 minutes from Newberry. I would definitely go back.

Lewis, we are glad that Colman's Cabin fit your needs.  The views from the deck are spectacular, and the sandy bottomed lake is great for swimming.  We hope to see you again!

Everything was as advertised! No real complaints.

Ashley, we are happy to hear that Coleman's Cabin fit your needs.  The private dock is great for fishing, and the sandy bottomed beach just makes swimming that much better.  We hope you come back again.

We loved our stay at Coleman’s Cabin and highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for a cozy quiet getaway! Fully equipped with a full kitchen, large private yard, fire pit, even satellite tv! The cabin is also conveniently located across the street from a small mart and gas station.
Thank you Freshwater for our very first Airbnb experience! This cabin was more than we expected! Beautiful view of the lake, cozy, clean cabin, and peaceful relaxation. We loved the personal touches such as snacks, board games, dvds, and even satellite tv for late nights. We were very satisfied with our stay with Freshwater!

Christy, we are thrilled that we were your first Airbnb experience, and that it was just what you were hoping for. Coleman's Cabin is a sweet place, and you can't beat sitting on the deck over looking the water.  We hope to work with you again!

Great location, well equipped cabin in a lovely spot - really enjoyed our 3 nights there. If you don't want to cook, the Triangle diner nearby serves up excellent food too!

Steve, we are so happy that you enjoyed your 3 nights at Coleman's Cabin, and that you found the Triangle Diner.  Thanks for that recommendation.  We hope to see you again!

Serene, idyllic, cozy
We had the best time at Coleman's cabin. It was well stocked, well furnished, comfortable, warm, and beautiful. The pictures do not do the view of the lake justice. The patio is amazing, the fire pit is in the perfect spot, the dock is well-kept, you could not ask for a better lake view. The property is easy to get to- right off of a main road. Don't expect cell service or even 4G Internet. The neighbors are friendly and helpful. The cabin was clean and ready for us except the loft bed was not made. The couch is very comfortable, but the other two chairs could be replaced with something more cozy. We really appreciated our time there and came back refreshed. The boat was in a good spot to get it into the water, but you have to be really strong in order to get the plug in. The owners are very thoughtful and have a lot of movies and games and cooking necessities for guests to use. There are also plenty of towels and washcloths, soap and anything else you can think of. Our time was far too short. Though the living space is small you can easily sleep six people in the cabin.

Krystina, we are thrilled that you enjoyed Coleman's Cabin as much as you did, and thank you for this detailed review.  The UP at this time of year is stunning, and the cabin is the perfect place to stay in order to take day trips to the various UP sites.  Please accept our apologies about the loft bed not being made.  It was obviously an over site by our cleaner. We do hope to see you again!

Great getaway
Very serene and comfortingly quiet. The cabin has everything you could want (except a broom and dustpan!) and the wooded area is breathtaking. Loved having the grocery right across the street from the lake. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the lake bottom is mucky and weedy, great for fishing but not so much for swimming.


James, we are so glad that you enjoyed Coleman's Cabin.  It is a great place to go tor really unwind.  We'll add the broom and dust pan to the supplies at the cabin!

Serene, clean setting
It's a small cabin but well thought out and they make the most of their space. Beautiful, wooded setting and very few people around, which both I and my grandson loved. He fished a lot while I read. Lake is weedy and mucky so dont plan in swimming but thete is everything you need here for a great vacation! Wish they would have had a broom, dustpan and mop so we could have cleaned up better. Vacuum didn't work. The UP is stunning! Thanks for, in my eyes, a perfect vacation! 


The U.P. is an amazing place.  The raw beauty is something to be experienced.  We are happy that Coleman's Cabin fit your needs.  Fishing and reading out in nature sounds like the perfect vacation.  We hope to see you again.

Quiet Getaway
Coleman's Cabin was clean. Everything in description was there. Private lake. You're in the middle of all tourists attractions


Leslie, we're really happy that you enjoyed your stay at Coleman's Cabin.  The view of the lake through the trees is inspiring.  Do come back again!

Very nice UP cabin
The cabin was small but clean and exactly what we were looking for. Beds were comfortable and the lake was beautiful. It is a very small cabin but we didn't need anything larger


Hi Jamie,   Coleman's Cabin is the perfect place to sit back and relax.  The view of the lake through the trees is so delightful.  We're glad that you experienced its wonder.

Cute little cabin on a beautiful lake
It was a Nice quiet area. The house was very cute and clean with just enough room for 3 of us. And the lake was beautiful.


Brittany, we are so happy that you had a good vacation at Coleman's Cabin.  Sitting on the deck looking out over the lake is so relaxing.  It's also spectacular in the fall when the colors change.  We'd love to see you come back again.
