Cal's Cabin is a single family housekeeping cabin that is located on Ford Lake in Fountain, Michigan. A short drive to Ludington or Manistee. This is a perfect get-away cabin with all the conveniences of home. Ford Lake is the perfect size, 208 acres, for enjoying all water activities. Cal's Cabin offers a grass and sandy beach with shallow lake frontage for wading and swimming. Dockage included for water craft. The water is clear and clean and will warm up quickly in the spring for swimming. Early risers will see and hear the sound of Loons calling to their mate from the water. Do you enjoy a nice walk or morning jog? The trip around the lake on foot is 3.2 miles. When walking, it will take about 45-60 minutes.

Fishermen will enjoy the sport of catching pan fish, bass, pike, and there are even stories of walleyes being caught right off the dock. A row boat is available at no charge for those wanting to try their luck fishing other areas of the lake or just take a ride around the shoreline.


Mid-day, families enjoy swimming, sunning and water activities. Bring along the speed boat or personal watercraft and enjoy great days in the sun. A fire pit is available for a great way to end a busy day. Sit back, relax and watch the sun set. Don't forget the marshmallows!


Bring your snowmobiles in the winter for great riding on the local trail systems. Snowmobilers can leave the cabin and within minutes be in the Manistee National Forest. These trails will take a rider all the way to the Baldwin, Iron, and Cadillac Trails, north to Wellston or Kaleva and even into the Manistee Trail Systems. You're even close enough to trailer up to Traverse City (1.5 hours) for day rides.
If you're not a snowmobiler but enjoy getting away, Cal's Cabin is the perfect place. Try ice fishing on the lake, winter festivals, cross country skiing and your only 45 minutes away from down-hill skiing (Cadillac).


Spring and Fall in northern Michigan is very relaxing and a great way to get away. Many enjoy quiet nature walks, fishing, and hunting. Special rates available during Spring and Fall. A great place for hunters as Cal's Cabin is only minutes from the Manistee National Forest for hunters, mushroomers or nature viewing. Also, many great rivers nearby for fishing, canoeing or kayaking.

Nearby Attractions

Other nearby attractions include the Little River Casino, Manistee National Forest, Manistee River, Pere Marquette and Sauble River, all known for great fishing and canoeing. Don't forget that Lake Michigan is only minutes away. Take the kids for a special day out; Michigan's Adventure Amusement Park (owned by Cedar Point) is one hour away in Muskegon.
