Things to do during "cabin time" in Fenton
Fenton, MI cottage and cabin lodging are in the heart of a stunning leisure area with crystal clear waters and blue skies. Within 10 miles of the town, nearly 60 lakes define the landscape, making this a haven for summertime fishing and boating. Named after the winner of a card game in the 1830’s, Fenton is widely known for its historical look and deep rooted tradition. Boasting a strong, connected community, Fenton’s vast amount of outdoor recreation helps traveling families grow closer. This year, discover the magic of Fenton, Michigan’s lodges and cabins.
Start your Fenton vacation by discovering Silver Lake Park. The park is fully equipped with volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, a beach area and scenic nature trails to entertain the whole family. On Tuesdays during the summer, the Silver Lake Ski Club performs on the water for excited spectators. On a nice day, check out the Dauner Martin Nature Sanctuary, where visitors can explore over 100 acres of colorful wildflowers and lively critters. 4.5 miles of winding, peaceful trails make the sanctuary easy to navigate, but difficult to leave. Head east of town to Seven Lakes State Park, where several miles of shoreline make for excellent shore fishing and calming waterside hikes.
At any time of year, Fenton can bring people together with great entertainment and community events. Celebrate the 4th of July with fun activities all weekend, including outdoor movies, a parade, and of course a fantastic fireworks show to wrap it up. After the fireworks, head back to your private Fenton area vacation rental. In August, your cabin time experience can include the Taste in Fenton, a potluck involving 30 local restaurants and live music. Start the holiday season off right with Jinglefest. This annual festival includes carved ice sculptures and s’mores by the campfire (how ironic, campfires and marshmallows at the cabin are popular too). Fresh fruit and vegetables can be found at the Fenton Farmer’s Market on Thursdays from mid-June to mid-September. Load up on local delights and cook right at your lakefront cottage.
There is so much to do in Fenton, but if you’re looking to spice up your Michigan vacation, head 15 minutes south to Spicer Orchards and Winery. You can pick your own strawberries, cherries and blueberries here starting in June. In the fall, zip lines and wagon rides make for a great time, but don’t forget caramel apples and hot doughnuts to take back to your Fenton cabin, cottage, lodge or home.
