Our Vacation

First time here and first time with a vacation rental. Beautiful spot not far from home. The River House is even better than the pictures show. The property is cared for by special people as evidenced by the conditions when we arrived. The grounds are professionally maintained and the inside of the cabin is well preserved. Though we had no need, two bathrooms would be a great addition to this property. The privacy, peace, and quiet truly make this place a retreat for the mind, body, and spirit, as advertised.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
Dear Wally & Linda,
Thank you for this wonderful experience. You have provided so much to us that our stay here has been amazing. We will never forget the great time we had kayaking and relaxing around the camp fire. We will also not forget all of the “Photo shoots” that we took by the beautiful flowers and along the river. Thank you for the memories in scenic Alaska, Michigan. We wish we could take your home back with us to Alaska.
Thank you so much
