My wife, our 9 month old little boy and I were looking for something that could offer an outdoor experience in a secluded area. When traveling with a baby there's only so many things you can do and as this was our first family vacation so we had high expectations. Most of the rentals we've used from VRBO have not met these expectations and we realize that the photographers must be paid handsomely because what you get isn't always what was shown. This little farm in Mio, MI was more than perfect, it was exactly what we expected from looking at the listing on VRBO. In fact the pictures don't do justice for the pristine and tranquility of this beautiful property! We enjoyed coffee on the large front porch each morning as we watched the fog burn off (the views of the AuSable Valley are amazing!). We found that leaving to do anything wasn't necessary as our days were filled with fishing (and if you don't catch lots of fish then you're doing something wrong) and swimming in the beautifully manicured pond while hanging out at the really cool little fishing cabin. In the evenings we would build a fire and either cook over it or use the nice big grill to whip up something tasty. The kitchen in the little farm house is amazing and allows for more than enough room to prepare meals. Our little guy enjoyed his first fire roasted hot dog and s'more which was great! My wife and I found more than enough to do to keep up occupied when not fishing and swimming. You can play horseshoes, hike one of the many trails right out the backdoor and we brought a Frisbee and kite which was great fun. If you're looking for a fun, quiet, beautiful property for your family vacation and somewhere to connect with nature then I highly suggest you rent this farm! It was more than expected and perfect for us! Be on the lookout for lots of wildlife too! We saw several deer, wild turkey and the many bird feeders on the property attract all different kinds of pretty birds. A big thank you to the property managers for catering to our needs and to the owners for offering such a great retreat! We'll be back!!
