Lake house vacation fun we always wanted and Pool Float #giveaway

#sponsored

This summer, our big family vacation is at Lake Mitchel near Cadillac, Michigan at a beautiful lake house called “Lake Mitchel Retreat” which we rented via Airbnb.

I was provided a product sample by Salas Brands Coconut Floats in exchanger for this review and the opinions expressed here are original, unique and my ideas solely. I specifically recommend products which I personally use and which I think will be an awesomesauce fit for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC 16 CFR, Part 225: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”

Our road trip to the lake house was three hours from Wisconsin to Grandma’s house in Chicagoland where we stayed overnight then another five hours from Illinois, through Indiana into Michigan.

We arrived, unpacked and made our way to the water where we discovered the lake house property includes a pier, 3 stand-up paddle boards, a peddle boat, a fire pit, many lawn chairs and other fun activities for our family to use.

Dirt-cheap cabin glamping in beautiful SW Wisconsin

Are you wanting an inexpensive rustic weekend cabin with a covered front porch?

Tucked away in the woods of Southwestern Wisconsin is a nook of four cabins, at Black Hawk Lake Recreation Area. Highland and Cobb, WI are the towns closest to the Black Hawk Lake and the park office has ice, bait, firewood (including kindling) and more. Look for the store at the turn for the park road which has a great selection of camping, fishing, hunting and adult party supplies!

The great find at Black Hawk Lake Rec Area are the four rustic cabins. The favorite (photos below) is Cabin #4 however Cabin #3 has an amazing view. The privacy and forest cover cannot be beat at Cabin #4 but the kicker is these cabins are all inexpensive at $70 (plus fees) per night. Check the Black Hawk Lake website for seasonal cabin pricing discounts and for more photos.
