Runamuk Roost is an authentic vintage, storybook log cabin lake home. A stay with us is like being transported back in time to that wonderful place you remember from your childhood.

Our guests repeatedly tell us that staying at Runamuk Roost is like living in a story book world. You can sense this not only in our guest comments and #1 review rankings but also by the fact that we've been featured in numerous travel magazines including most recently in the Christmas 2015 Cabin Living Magazine.

Even with the charm flowing all around, you'll still be surrounded by resplendent luxuries and comforts –things like A/C, Wifi, cable TV, and a beautiful fireplace. We also offer on-sight boat & jet-ski rentals.

Runamuk's alluring private-estate like setting, tasteful adornments, perfect size home & lake all work together...
