Modern Day Log Home with Rustic Log Cabin Touches

Cracklewood Cabins is a two bedroom yellow pine full log 1000 sq. ft. home completed in 2007. The flooring throughout the cabin is hardwood and ceramic. The interior walls are tongue and groove pine. This northern Michigan log home is decorated as a rustic logging cabin utilizing Michigan photographs from the logging era as well as logging tools.


The home sleeps 6-8 comfortably. Sleeping accommodations include one bedroom on the first floor with a queen size bed, a full size futon in the living room, one bedroom upstairs with a queen size bed, and a full size futon in the loft. 

The cabin is located on a treed two acre site. Decks extend the length of the home in both the front and back of the house providing a shady spot to relax and listen to the wind rustling the leaves of the trees. You may even catch a glimpse of the humingbirds that frequent our feeders.


We have also been working on cutting a meandering path accessible from the back yard through the property. A bench has been added so guests can escape with a good book or sip their morning coffee while watching the sun rise through the trees.
