New rustic cabin now available for rent at Sleepy Hollow State Park

An ADA-accessible rustic cabin now is available for rent year-round at Sleepy Hollow State Park in Clinton County, Mich., the state's Department of Natural Resources announced recently.

According to a release, the cabin, with a scenic view of 410-acre Lake Ovid, sleeps five people. The lighting is solar-powered and a propane wall heater provides warmth during cold months. Drinking water is available near the cabin, as well as a vault-style toilet. The bedroom includes a full-size bed with a single bunk above, and a full-size futon located in the adjoining room.

Those renting the cabin must bring their own bedding and cooking supplies. A private outdoor grill, fire ring and picnic table are located adjacent to the cabin.

“In addition to swimming, boating and fishing opportunities within walking distance, there is easy access to over 23 miles of hiking, bicycle and equestrian trails,” said Tim Machowicz, park supervisor.

Picket poles are located nearby for use by equestrians renting the cabin and a short path leads to the park’s trail system.

This cabin was built through a partnership between the DNR and Sleepy Hollow Trail Riders Association, an equestrian group that maintains the equestrian trails and hosts various events throughout the year, such as competitive mounted orienteering and judged trail rides.

“This addition to Sleepy Hollow offers our customers a great option, along with renting a campsite or the modern cabin,” said Dave Zmikly, park ranger. “The lake view is one of the best in the park.”
