Location Details

Nestled in a quiet Manistique neighborhood, 'Thunder Cove Cabin' is the perfect retreat to step aside from the city bustle. You'll be able to launch a watercraft at the ramp just across the street from this property, or find hiking, biking, ATV or snowmobile trails just minutes away!

Skip the motorboats and paddle your own vessel when you take one of the provided kayaks out for a spin. Fish from the shoreline in the hope of reeling in bluegill, perch, or pike.

Glass-like views of Thunder Lake peek through the trees in the Hiawatha National Forest. Depending on the season, you'll need to wear hiking boots or cross-country skis!

Don't miss a chance at seeing one of the area's greatest attractions at Palms Book State Park, known as the entrance to Kitch-Iti-Kipi, The "Big Springs."

For a night out, take a scenic 20-minute drive north to Boot Lake Bar & Grill. Located along a popular snowmobiling trail, this local hot spot is the ideal place to indulge in your favorite comfort foods. If golf is your game there are 2 courses within roughly 25 and 40 miles, or you can take a day trip and see the waterfalls and beaches at Lake Michigan and Lake Superior less than an hour away.

    Choose this cabin in U.P. because it was near a lake and offered everything we wanted. Super clean. Well stocked. Very friendly and caring hosts. Within driving distance to all the attractions, we were interested in. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay again.

  • Well Stocked, Clean, Remote, Cabin on Beautiful Thunder Lake near Manistique, MI


    This cabin is pretty remote hard packed dirt roads are the only way to reach it especially if arriving from the north. Your car will get dirty. We did not mind this. The cabin is perfect. Beds are comfortable and there are lots of sheets, pillows and blankets. The loft area where there is an extra bed gets a little warm but fans are provided. Lots of kayaks are available free of charge and kayaking the lake is a must! The cabin is so well stocked with grocery staples that you really do not need to bring much. We didn't even visit a grocery store during our week stay. We brought our own garden vegetables and hamburger, hotdogs, and chicken for the week. The shower has a very strong spray but the tub/shower is very clean. The grill is in perfect condition. The fire pit was well stocked with wood. Roasting forks, small cooler, axe, etc., everything you need is there. We didn't have contact with the hosts while there, there wasn't any reason to. The place is perfect for a quiet and relaxing vacation. The journey is long to go to Muinising, Pictured Rocks Lakeshore, etc. But as long as you don't mind a little dirt the journey is fun! We saw 2 Eagles, lots of deer, cranes and all the other forest creatures during our stay (no bears). The waterfalls are amazing. We especially liked Miners Fall and Sable Falls. My son and wife hiked to Spray Falls. It is an 8 mile round trip hike (don't believe anyone that tells you it is any shorter!) We made it and it was beautiful! Take lots of water for the walk is strenuous in the heat of the day. We found a great restaurant in Muinising called The Duck Pond Eatery and Beer Garden. The whitefish is prepared any way you want. The beer is cold and they have full bar. The Beer Garden is pet-friendly and shaded. Loved this place especially after an 8 mile hike. We all fell in love with the Upper Peninsula and Thunder Cove Cabin Rocks!!!! Great job Gordon and Kim, we wanted for nothing more!

    House was very well stocked. House was a bit of a drive to get to places as it was tucked back in the woods pretty good but we actually loved the privacy and the quietness. Enjoyed our stay:)
