*FISHERMAN'S DREAM (summer & winter)

This luxurious log home is located in the midst of Ottawa National Forest, on the shore of a crystal clear spring fed lake, just outside the small town of Iron River, Michigan. Hagerman Lake as it is called, named after the original owners of the surrounding property, is an excellent fishing lake both summer and winter.It has been highlighted in Field and Stream magazine for its record Northern catches. It is home to a family of Bald Eagles. Frequent sightings of the state bird, the Loon are made on the lake. A giant Woodpecker loves to awaken you some mornings with its rat-tat. If you get up during the night, make a point to go outside and check out the aurora borealis, a frequent sight in the night sky of the U. P. There is a fire pit in the yard lakeside to enjoy day or night, and ample wood is provided.
Well marked cross-country trails adjoin the property that is great for hiking and backpacking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter. As an added bonus, it is located in the heart of snowmobile country. Trail rides abound in every direction.

Warm winter getaway!
It was my husband, two dogs, and this cabin was a lot more space than we needed, but it was perfect for a long weekend. I contacted the rental company mid-stay regarding some items of concern and they (and the owner) were super responsive to my concerns. Great cabin and awesome rental company! I would recommend. The owner has a bunch of cut wood at the cabin for the fireplace, with a wood splitter on the front porch to get smaller pieces. This saved us the hassle from having to go into town to find wood. Definitely appreciated! FYI - they are right, your GPS is not to be trusted when getting close to this property (coming from southern WI anyway).

Jessica, thank you for this great review and for the kudoos to FVR.  It is our highest priority to make our guest's visit the best possible.  We are so glad that you, your husband and your pups had such a great stay at Lincoln Log Cabin.  It is a great winter property.  We hope to work with you again in the future!

We had an awesome time!
This is one of our favorite cabins and we'll definitely be back!

Ken, the best reviews come from our returning guests, so we really appreciate your taking the time to write a review.  Lincoln Log Cabin is a great property.  The stone fireplace, the windows, the view of the lake, the porch and the privacy all combine to make it a great vacation spot.  We are so glad that you came back and we look forward to seeing you again!

Great getaway
We loved our stay at the Lincoln Log Cabin! I'm sure it shines in the summer, but for us, the cabin made for a perfect winter retreat over the holidays. Coming from Chicago, we were looking for a change of pace, and that's exactly what we found. The property is nestled in the woods with lots of peace and quiet. But it was only a short drive to Iron River, where we made daily trips for tasty meals and visits to a very nice grocery store. Inside, the entire cabin has a cozy feel even though there was lots of room for everyone to stretch out and find their own space. We spent most of our time in the great room, reading by the fire or sitting at the dining table with views of the lake. The bedrooms were big and comfy too. The service we received surrounding our stay was fantastic. Cara from Freshwater was prompt and friendly--not only answering my questions but offering great tips about places to eat near the cabin. After we arrived, the owner of the property called to make sure I had everything I needed. It was a really pleasant experience all around. We are hoping to get back to the Lincoln Log Cabin again soon!

John, getting reviews such as yours makes our day!  We are so happy that Lincoln Log Cabin was the perfect place for your group.  There is something totally magical about being in the woods in winter, tucked into a comfortable cabin with a huge stone fireplace and a light, open floor plan.  It's the perfect place for dreaming, reading and conversing and outdoor winter sports if that's your thing. We look forward to working with you again!

This is the 2nd time we have rented this cabin. It is so beautiful, clean and has everything you need. I highly recommend the Lincoln Log cabin. We stayed for Christmas both trips and they had the cabin decorated for us and even had a Christmas tree. The cabin is really close to Ski Bruel and Caspian sledding hill. We had so much fun. On our next trip up I would like to visit and stay at the cabin in the summer. Thanks again for the wonderful stay!

Jody, thanks for this great review!  Our return guests are our best advertising.  Lincoln Log Cabin is a great vacation spot any time of year, and going there for Christmas was brilliant!  The incredible stone fireplace must have helped to make everything even more merry and bright!  Do come this summer, so you can experience the pleasure of Lincoln Log Cabin in the warm months.
