About Kurt Kras

We Fell in love with Stony Lake the first time we set eyes on the area. A cousin sold us her cabin on this beautiful property and it fell into disrepair after years of entertainment and enjoyment. Realizing we had decision to make of rehabbing or complete new structure, we choose the latter as we quickly understood that this area is the gem of the midwest. After starting a family, we could not come up to the area as often as we could living 4 hours away. Renting and donating to family and friends throughout the years we decided to rent to qualified families to enjoy this slice of heaven. Our memories will last a lifetime with all of the activities and enjoyment this area offers.

Kurt Kras purchased this cabin in 1996

What makes this cabin unique

A 3 minute walk to the stony store for ice cream or cottage cafe for pizza. Also a short walk to the Lazy River where we enjoy an incredible 40 minute floating journey on a raft from Stony Lake to Lake Michigan beach. The free flowing nature ride is easy, relaxing and enjoyable for all ages from 3 years to 93 years old. Having the easy access to a playground close by and a park is convenient but we always loved the walk to the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Kurt was so easy to communicate with! We had a wonderful weekend! Nice and wooded lot that is well cared for. Cute cottage that is clean and comfortable. We came for the Cherry Point Fish boil and to canoe down the river. If you stay here you must make reservations at the Cherry Point fish boil it's a 10 minute drive and the food was amazing! We also had plans to canoe down the river.. We ended up floating on tubes down the river which was nice. It took about 2 hours, which with little children was just a little too long. I wish we would have canoed, but I was unable to find 2 canoes as Kurt's was stolen. There was a maintenance guy there Keith who was staying above the garage. He was super helpful and helped us get the floats back from the beach. Overall a wonderful stay. The only thing I would mention is that the spiral staircase wasn't my favorite with my small kids around. I would stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the review, I truly appreciate the opportunity to host your family. The cherry point market is always a great choice for our guests and they appreciate the kind words as well. Typically the lazy river is about an hour but this year the current was a little slow. Thanks again and hopefully we will have the opportunity to host your family again. Take Care, Kurt Kras

We were very pleased with our stay.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed all that the cabin had to offer. It was perfect weather for a bonfire and a fire in the fireplace. We were able to take long walks around the area and enjoy the scenery. Lunch and Dinner at the Inn were perfect. It was a great weekend.
