Super relaxing visit!


We came to Pine Lake to get away from busy life in the city. It was a wonderful experience. My daughter and I read by the waterfront, had a bonfire and kayaked. We also ventured to Manistee and had dinner over-looking the water. If you need to decompress and get away - this is the place for you! Thank you Rick and Marie for being great hosts!

The Perfect Cabin


My husband, our 15 year old son and his best buddy stayed in Cabin #3 for their fishing trip to Tippy Dam. They loved the cabin and its location. We will definitely book again!

Stay at Pine Lake Cabins


WOW! What a Great place to stay! We came here last year and absolutely loved it. As a family we have made this a yearly tradition to come here in August. I can't say enough good things about this place. The cabins are clean,and have just what you would need. They also have a lake house with water toys for kids, life jackets, kayaks, boats to go fishing with, poles for fishing and it is very relaxing. They also have a campfire pit with wood available. You will not be disappointed. They are lovely people.

Simply Amazing


Loved my time there. Very quiet, and welcoming all in one. Unfortunately I didn't get to enjoy a lot of time at my cabin due to other activities in the area. But everything was great while I was there. Very well maintained, friendly owners and I will definately be back. I told several friends about this place, and I really love to see places like this prosper. Thank you for everything.

Great place - great hosts


We love our stays at Pine Lake Cabins. The setting is great for children and relaxing and restful for adults (we've been lucky to have fellow guests who appreciate the quiet of a nature retreat). Lawn chairs, row boats, kayaks, life vests, and sand toys are already there so you don't need to haul everything, and Rick and Marie are always attentive to any little needs or problems that may arise.

Great hunting!


My son and I had a great time bow hunting around Pine Lake. We saw numerous deer and my son took a doe and a buck during our stay. Our cabin was warm when we got back from hunting, beds were comfortable and shower hot. Highly recommend staying with Rick and Marie, they have really done a great job with the cabins.

Highly recommend


My 1 year old and my fiance and I stayed here for about a week . It was the cheapest option and ended up being the best! We had such a blast ! The owners were so nice and welcoming. There was always fire wood available. Kayaks were available and life jackets . The lake and beach were clean and there was no littering. The cabin was perfect with a beautiful view . Wifi came in handy to play music to soothe my daughter to sleep! I plan on going back next year for my honeymoon and more family vacations! It was perfect and I can't wait to come back

Marie and Rick have done a great job of up-dating the cabins. They provide their guests with all the amenities you need while maintaining the cabins rustic charm. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation is provided for you and either Marie or Rick is available should you need assistance for anything. The lake is clear and clean, the fishing is great. Give them a try...you will not regret it.

Our Favorite Place!


I have been coming to Pine Lake my entire life! So happy the Pine Lake Cabins are here so I can continue the tradition with my children! This was our second year staying here. Last year we stayed in Cabin 7 and this year Cabin 3. Both stays were exactly what we were looking for! Rick & Marie do a fantastic job managing & maintaining this property. We had perfect weather! Enjoyed the swimming, beach, kayaks, bad mitton/ volleyball net, fishing boats, and community fire pit! Absolutely love this place and we will always choose to stay here! Thanks again Rick & Marie got sharing your slice of heaven with us all.

A great stay for a relaxed fishing trip


My son and I stayed two nights while fishing the Manistee River. Very nice cabin with the essentials. Very comfortable and a nice location for us and what we wanted to do. We only were there evenings so didn't have a chance to sample what all was offered by the cabin's site. Thanks to the owners all was as described and we were pleased with our stay.

By far on top of our list of favorite places


We are always looking for weekend getaways near Chicago and have been all over WI, we only recently started venturing to Michigan. Pine lake cabins is by far on top of our list of favorite places. Rick & Marie were so welcoming and helpful, the campgrounds are beautiful and well maintained. The scenery is breathtaking now that the leaves are changing, and although it rained all day on our last morning taking a nap with the cool breeze coming in and the sound of the rain was so relaxing. The kayaks and boats that were available to us with the cabin rental were an added bonus! This place is phenomenal, we are already planning another trip back later this fall!

Clean modern cabins secluded in the national forest


Fantastic place. Clean cabins, you can tell the owners really care about the place. Great beach with kayaks and boats, even a diving platform. Nice fire pit area on the beach. The place is set back in the woods down a sandy road. Very secluded but still not too far from basic amenities. Owners were very friendly. Firewood was provided. There is a public boat launch on the lake. Definitely one of the best places I've stayed. The cabins are being renovated and you can tell they're taking the time to do things properly. I highly recommend Pine Lake Cabins and hope to be coming back for many years.

Peaceful lakeside retreat


My husband and I had already planned a vacation at Pine Lake Cabins when just a few days before it was time to come here we had a death in our family. We live in Maryland and were desperately trying to find accommodations on short notice without any luck. That's when we decided to see if the resort had any open cabins. Rick and Marie were very gracious in working us in and the cabin was beautiful. Very very clean and spacious. Great views of the lake and even kayaks and row boats to use. Everything you need is provided and they are such great hosts. We stayed 4 days in this cabin and now we are enjoying our "vacation" cabin just as much. Thank you Rick and Marie for such a beautiful place to relax at

Beautiful scenery, very welcoming owners


What a wonderful stay we had at Pine Lake. The grounds and the cabins were very clean. The lake and surrounding area are gorgeous. The owners, Rick and Marie were both so friendly, welcoming and helpful. So much to do in and around Wellston. Only 1/2 hour drive to Lake Michigan, Manistee and a casino. Pine Lake has kayaks available for use on the beautiful and very clean lake. Not only would we recommend friends and family, we are already planning a Fall trip back.
