Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cabin / bungalow. Sleeps 9, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Interlochen, MI 49643 United States

Looking for a get-away-from-it-all spot in Northern Michigan? Well, you have found it at these two great cabins. "Laughing Duck Cottages" are located in Interlochen - rich in local history and surrounded by lakes and woods. Enjoy these two cabins with 60' of beautiful sandy frontage with dock, mooring, 2 kayaks and a canoe.

The first cabin is right on the lake with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, sleeps 5-6 guests with 1 Queen, 1 set of bunks, and a sofabed (the sofabed has an inflatable mattress which makes for comfortable sleeping). The living room features a big stone fireplace and an enclosed porch perfect for morning coffee, playing cards or just looking at the sunrise over the lake.

The second cabin includes 1 bedroom and 1 bath and is just across the quiet street. Sleeps 4 with a Queen bed and a Sofa-bed. Washer/Dryer. Both of these cabins come nicely appointed, each with a full kitchen.

Stretch out on the hammock after all that water fun or light up a fire in the firepit and enjoy sharing stories about your day. Just minutes to the Interlochen Center for the Arts. If you like live entertainment, make sure to check out the summer schedule. Traverse City is an easy 20 minute drive. The Michigan Fair is about 10 minutes away. Miles of hiking trails. The Cherry Bowl outdoor drive in theater is about 20 miles west. There is so much to do in this wonderful area.

Linens are included. Your well mannered pet is welcome. Ceiling fans for cooling the cabin plus the cool lake breezes. No smoking.

    Happy with the rental overall... Great location,clean, cozy, beautiful scenery. Some confusion with garbage pick up but no big deal. Appreciated pets being welcome! Only negative was that lake side cottage is in need of some cosmetic work. Roof and paint, bathroom definitely need updating.Overall a very nice, enjoyable stay. Kids loved kayaks and canoe.

    Jennifer S from Dundee, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We rented two properties on Duck Lake. The one referred to as a cabin is in dire need of updating! You can feel where the original floor has weak spots and is being covered by linoleum in the bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom toilet isn't even secured properly and moved with the slightest bump of the leg. The shower is cramped. The beds are very comfortable! Great location of the cabin. Cabin has kayaks, a canoe, life jackets (kids too) and fishing equipment. The foundation of the house looks to be stabilized with random concrete bricks of all shapes and sizes. Also appears wood may be rotting. The rear property is updated and gorgeous, but the queen bed is uncomfortable.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Laughing Duck is one of the original cabins in Interlochen close to 100 years old. Some things we can correct but some are just the character of the cabin. Thank you for staying with us.

    Rachel P from Shepherd, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We had an awesome experience renting these TWO cabins for a fall weekend getaway! The property was described accurately the cabin on the lake is an original ;) and has a great real cabin feel! The Second cabin across the street was very updated and felt more like a hotel. Both properties were very clean the cabin on the lake could use an updated maybe slightly bigger shower but it did the job. The view is beautiful, the fire pit right on the water was adorable. There were a couple restaurants right in town that had great food and it was only 20 minutes or so from Traverse City were we spent a good majority of our time! We will definitely consider this in the future! This was a great cabin for a couples getaway but would also be great for a family! I would recommend this to anyone!

    We had a wonderful time at the cottages and enjoyed pretty much all the amenities they offer: lake access, canoeing, kayaking, fire pit, etc. We booked with two days in advance and all the process went flawless. The location relative to other attractions is also great: Traverse City, Dunes.

    Beautiful quiet lake. The cottage across the street was great for gathering/playing games, etc. The cabin by the lake was perfect for direct access to the lake/pier, bbq, hammock. So many toys! It exceed my expectations.

    Amanda H from Jackson, Michigan recommends this vacation rental

    Very nice location, loved the beach area and dock! Great spot for two toddlers to swim, very shallow for a long time. Dock was perfect for our boat that we docked. Cabin on the beach front is old, but cute, perfect for a cabin feeling. Bathroom needs updates. The cabin across the street is immaculate, very new and modern, super nice. Location was great!

    a guest from Rochester, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Great place on a great lake. The sunrises on Duck Lake were spectacular. The cabin is what you expect from an old, lake-side cabin; small, imperfect, but also cute, charming and cozy. My family loved the cabin. The interior was well done and clean.
    The pictures of the home across the road did not do it justice. The place is very well appointed and extremely comfortable and very clean and updated.
    Consider the long dock with mooring hoist, canoe, kayaks, lake-side fire-pit and everything you need for a great vacation, you'll love Laughing Ducks on Duck Lake.

    We loved our stay at the referenced properties. The houses were perfect for our family of five. We enjoyed using the kayak and canoe and built a fire to make some-mores. The neighborhood is lovely for walks.

    Laughing Duck was the perfect "get away from it all" location. During the fall there were virtually no neighbors and we had the lake almost to ourselves. The cottage is cozy,well-appointed and close to everything. We will definitely be returning to Laughing Duck!

    • Manager Responded on 12/2/2014

      It is a perfect fall retreat! Thank you for staying with us and please come again.

    Great location. Everything for a great lakeside vacation was available on site. Interior could use some updating. Bathroom in very poor condition.

    Kristen N from Manhattan, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Great cottage just 20 minutes outside Traverse City. Very quiet and relaxed lake and town - with the opportunity to drive within an hour to all local sights (TC, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Lake Michigan, Lighthouse in Leelanu, Leland fishing village, Glen Arbor, biking to Sutton's Bay from TC, etc....)
    House is just right for a couple or a small family with 2 kids. Really liked the screened in back porch - lake was nice, great to have the canoe and kayak access. Home was clean and furniture has been updated.

    Overall cute place; however, it would have been nice if the floors were cleaned. I found myself cleaning when this should have been taking care of. Also, the lake does have Swimmer's Itch. I would have liked to know ahead of time.
