About Dan Whitehead
Dan & Marnie Whitehead purchased this property in 1998 with the dream of clearing the property enough to put their airstream camper on it until they could build their own cabin. Together with their two young daughters, they accomplished their dream and built the cabin in 2003. They have been working on finishing the cabin by themselves for the past 10 years while enjoying raising their family.

Why Dan Whitehead chose Deer Creek
We fell in love with this property because of the many lakes, parks, festivals and other community events that bring people together! The property is absolutely serene no matter what season!
What makes this Cabin unique
East Leaf Lake not only offers a variety of activities on the lake but also on Leaf River which is also perfect for canoeing, kayaking & fishing. This is an excellent pan-fishing lake with good Walleye, Northern & Large Mouth Bass! The lake is perfect for families as there is low boat traffic on most days.

Overall, a very nice place! Cabin amenities, layout and comfort were outstanding. The huge wrap around deck was a huge bonus to have additional space to sit outside. However, many screw heads were sticking up on the deck boards making it a bit of a hazard to go onto the deck without shoes on .Just a couple of things stand between a 4 and a 5 in my viewpoint. Lawn/grass was not mowed before or during our stay, even requested a path be mowed down to the lake/fire-pit area, but did not happen. Lake area needs some attention as it was difficult to get a boat out onto the lake due to excessive weeds and lily pads, causing a lot of frustration and extra effort to even get boat onto the main part of the lake. Boat prop constantly got wrapped up with weeds. Lakefront area and fire-pit area could use some clean up so one could actually enjoy the lake view from the fire-pit area. A possible improvement would be to have a fire-pit or fire ring closer to the cabin to allow for more convenient use. Would definitely rent again if some of the maintenance items were taken care of. Great cabin and location, just needs a little exterior TLC.
Beautiful cabin with a gorgeous view of the lake
My family and i stayed here for 4 nights to celebrate Christmas. We had a great time relaxing in this cabin. We cant wait to go back!
Perfect little getaway!
Beautiful cabin, wonderful owners! My family and I stayed here and enjoyed everything about it! Super comfortable beds, and the perfect layout for spending quality time together!
Beautiful place. Love lake view i would recommend this place only thing i didn't like here was water. Water smell when you shower it could be pipes. But i wont cut star for that. 5*.
Gorgeous cabin getaway right on the lake.
This is the perfect cabin getaway. Very private, well decorated, and plenty of space. Dan was a great host and very accommodating.
I came up to the cabin for a guys weekend with my buddies and we had a great time. The cabin is well cared for and had everything we needed for the weekend trip. Thank you for letting use your lake home!
