17+ Cozy Cabin Rentals in Michigan for a Perfect Summer, Fall or Winter Getaway

Cabin Rentals in Michigan

Escaping to a cabin for a little R&R might be just the Michigan vacation you need.

Michigan cabin rentals come in all shapes and sizes – log homes, A-frame cabins, even tree house cabins are featured here.

Renting a cabin is really easy these days, thanks to platforms like VRBO. But, because the differences between properties and hosts can be great, booking via these websites requires more attention to detail than, say, booking a hotel room.

Rent a cabin in the fall to catch the fall colors. Rent a cabin in the summertime to enjoy nearby beaches. Perhaps the cabin rental you find will provide fishing or boating opportunities. Cabin in Michigan in the winter might just let you try snowmobiling, snowshoeing, or skiing for the first time!

PS – According to the dictionary, a cabin is a small shelter or house, made of wood and situated in a wild or remote area. 

The types of lodgings that made our list are on the rustic side, sometimes log-built structures, usually smaller in nature – but not always. We’ll be putting out a list of cottage rentals soon – so if that’s your style, stay tuned.

Cabins in Michigan on the Water

Do you want a waterside getaway? Many cabin rentals in Michigan come with this wonderful feature – whether riverside or lakeside, it’s not hard to find a rental with waterfront access.

Many families look for waterfront cabin rentals in Michigan for recreation opportunities. Rivers can offer fly fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. Lakeside cabins may be good places to fish, swim, canoe, or use a stand-up paddle board.

The cabin rentals below all have waterfront locations. The body of water for each cabin is listed under the Cabin Fast Facts section.

Cabin Rental Tips

Consider these factors before clicking the “book now” button for any of these cabins in Michigan:

1) Host / Property Ratings and Reviews
You will learn many things about the place you want to book by thoroughly reading the reviews. Are the neighbors loud? Was the host responsive? Is the place clean? Is parking a pain?

2) Are Linens and Basics Provided?
The last thing you want is to show up and realize that you were supposed to bring your own sheets and toilet paper. Read listings carefully to suss out requirements for your visit.

3) How Much Cleaning Is Required?
I’ve had cabin rentals where I was simply asked to take out the trash before leaving. I’ve also stayed in places that wanted me to strip all of the beds and start a load of laundry before leaving. Consider asking about checkout requirements if your listing doesn’t disclose checkout duties.
