Getaway on the lake. Cozy pet-friendly cabin 2 hours from Chicago. Firepit!

Lakefront Cabin with kitchen and patio
Plan your getaway to this cozy cabin located on a peninsula with a 180 degree view of beautiful Maple Lake. Whether you're looking for a romantic weekend,a cozy winter getaway or fun filled summer vacation, Maple Leaf Cabin is your lakeside retreat!

Maple Lake is a 172 acre, mile long all sports lake just 2 hours from both Chicago and Detroit, with easy access from I-94.

Maple Leaf Cabin features a bedroom with full sized bed with 100% cotton sheets and quilt. The cabin also has an indoor dining area, modern kitchen and bath, and washer/dryer for laundry. The cabin features a huge screened porch with floor to ceiling views of the lake. Enjoy meals from the large square picnic table, take afternoon naps, play board games or read by lamplight.
The cabin also has wonderful outdoor space, with a deck, fire pit, picnic table and plenty of adirondack chairs to relax and enjoy the view of the lake while sipping morning coffee or sampling a glass of local wine.

Dine out in local restaurants and pubs or create your own feast from local farmstands and (if you're lucky) your own catch of the day! Fish off the seawall or paddle the lake in our canoe. Or cruise the lake on Miss Maple, our pontoon boat--great for fishing, basking in the sun or sipping cocktails at sunset (extra charge applies). Hunt for antiques, stroll a few blocks for ice cream or a movie in Paw Paw's vintage theatre ($3!) or visit a u-pick farm or local winery. Check out the microbrews at the Paw Paw Brewing Co.--don't forget to bring the growler from the cabin for a refill. Or relax and do nothing...It's always great to get away to Maple Leaf Cabin--and don't forget your pets!

5/5 Excellent

Great screened-in porch to watch the swans and ducks
This cabin has a beautiful screened-in porch that looks directly at the lake. There is an overhead fan that cools the porch and because of some mature trees, it is always in the shade. Miss Maple, the pontoon boat is also loads of fun!

5/5 Excellent

Great Place at Great Location
We had a great time. Used the pontoon and caught a bunch of fish. Walked downtown for free concert and local restaurant. Perfect view for unwinding in the evening.

5/5 Excellent

Cats and fishing paradise!
Wonderful spot for two…and our cats. Great fishing right off the dock. Pontoon boat for lake cruising. Screened in porch was a kitty heaven for indoor cats to safely experience the outside world. Everything you need is available onsite, from firewood for the fire pit, to roasting sticks for marshmallows, to a Weber grill for outdoor cooking. Great little kitchen has everything you need to cook “at home”. Wonderful restaurant options if you don’t want to cook in Paw Paw and surrounds. Lots to do within minutes from free outdoor concert to wineries and breweries for tastings to blueberry picking. One of our most relaxing vacations ever!

5/5 Excellent

Nice view of the Lake.
Cabin is small but just right for 2 people. Sitting out on the enclosed porch was the best, beautiful view of the lake, nice and quiet, perfect for that morning coffee.

5/5 Excellent

Cute cottage overlooking a nice lake. Amazing screen porch for lazy afternoons and evenings w/o bugs
Relaxing getaway.
