Weekend Getaway!

As February 21 was our 1 year anniversary, we wanted to get away for the weekend. After our adventure of a honeymoon, we hoped that this year we could have a nice relaxing weekend with no crazy adventures!

We found a nice little cabin near Mackinaw City, and decided to try our luck one more time. This time, the cabin was perfect! (Plus, we brought enough food for the weekend, so we didn't have to worry about that!)

Isn't it cute? It's called the Cub Cabin.

The owners, Mike and Linda, are wonderful people. The cabin is right next door to their house, so they are nearby if you need anything. Linda even baked us some cookies; peanut butter and pumpkin chocolate chip. They were fantastic!

Here's a little tour:

I loved these stairs! They go up to the loft where the bed is.

We were at the cabin Saturday - Monday. Saturday we sat down to eat supper and two deer decided to join us. Can you spot them?

We even found some deer tracks outside the cabin.

Sunday we headed across the bridge (I have always loved the Mackinac Bridge) and stopped in St. Ignace for a quick lunch. There wasn't much going on there in February.

The lake was frozen on both sides in the shallows, but not frozen at all in the center. It looked really cold, though!

We had to stop and take a picture of the True Value we found in St. Ignace for my dad!

This beautiful house was across the street from where we stopped to eat our packed lunch. It's some sort of hotel now, and needs a little bit of help, but it still looks beautiful. 

After all that cold air, our feet needed some warming up!

We brought our wedding cake with us. This was the roll of plastic wrap that my parents wrapped it in to keep it fresh. 

It got a little smashed in it's travels...

But it was still fantastic!

It was a great, relaxing weekend, but over way too quickly!

If any of you readers are looking for a cute little cabin in northern Michigan, let me know. This was the perfect couples getaway. We loved it!


  1. I like your winter cabin sparkly flats. Good thing you didn't have to trek down a mountain wearing those!

  3. Very nice cabin, love the twisty stairs, and even da yoopers need a good hardware store.

  4. It's so cute - I think we need to go there. :)
    The cake did get a little beat up, glad it tasted good.
