I have always been a creature of comfort. I enjoy the finer things in life and am not great at roughing it. My idea of heading to a campground and communing with nature is pulling up in a 36-foot motor home with all the comforts of home. So, when it came to looking for a cottage in the Upper Peninsula, I decided to go for the gold. Not only did I find the most perfect log cabin in the woods, but it also comes with its own lake! And it is a little bigger and fancier than most cottages up north.

You will not get any unexpected visitors, as its gated access guarantees privacy. The lodge is on Gibson Lake, 75 acres in size with about 2850 feet of frontage. It is not just a lake, but a well-stocked lake with bass, walleye and perch. The cabin has a 40-foot dock on the lake. It also boasts a sun room and two large decks lakeside. It is a single-family home built on 250 acres in 1998. Spending time in this cabin would truly be heaven on earth.

The master suite features a custom shower at one with the elements. The cabin has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. It certainly will be a sizable investment to own this place. It is priced at $2,458 per square foot, and it is 2644 square feet in size. It is currently listed at $6,500,000, but the owner says he will also rent it for $15,000 a month. Not exactly in my price range, but I can dream about it! You can see the listing on Zillow and check out some pictures of the cabin below.
