Coleman’s Cabin, in McMillan, Michigan, is a great spot to relax and rejuvenate. While it is not in the woods, and is generally a quiet place to relax, there are neighbors within an easy view.  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! Great for ATVs, fishing, and swimming! 

There are 3 sleeping quarters consisting of 2 bedrooms and a loft area. Coleman’s cabin comes with a full kitchen, TV with cable/dvd player, hundreds of dvd’s, board games, books, and a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Distances between the cottages: Yes, there are neighbors within view, and if neighbors are talking outside, you can hear their voices. While Coleman's Cabin is generally quiet, true serenity would need to be found elsewhere.  While there are trees near the cabin, this cabin is NOT directly in the woods.  You will see other people, much fewer than you'd see downstate Michigan. 

Dock: Private dock for guests to use is 15’ long. Feel free to dock your own boat.

Fishing: Yes, generally East Lake has good fishing. Guests have had a good experience with perch and various pan fish.  Since trout tend to like fast-moving deep, cold water, there are not trout found on East Lake. Fishing poles are not provided.  You can fish off the dock or the rowboat. Feel free to bring your own boat. The boat launch is about 1/2 mile down the road.

Fishing License: You can purchase your fishing license online at

Fishing poles: Please bring your own

Grill: There is a propane, charcoal and electric grill for guests to use. No excuse as to why you can’t cook! All the fuels are provided to guests.

Grocery Store: Small convenience store within walking distance!

Internet:  Not at the property

Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I’ll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Parking: Park on property for free. 2-3 cars can fit easily and a trailer

Pets: 1 Dog under 15lbs. is welcome at this property! Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $50/per pet for your entire stay. Yes, we do accept dogs, yet we do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin. Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on.  Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we’ll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.

Privacy: There are just a few neighbors in sight, but with the foliage in the summer, it feels very private.

Space: 2 Floors—main floor and then loft area. Approximately 700 sq. ft.  

Towels: Yes, we provide towels.  It's always good to bring extra though.

Washer and dryer:  YES! There is one on the property and detergent is provided to guests!

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.

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!

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!

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.
