About Shawn Mullins

My wife and I both work full time and we have 3 little red heads. We love to travel and love sharing our cabin with other people and families. We LOVE this part of Michigan and feel like it is truly God's country. We get great satisfaction when happy customers call after their stay and tell us how much they enjoyed the cabin and how beautiful it is in that part of the state. We take pride in our place and can assure you that it will be clean and comfortable!

Shawn Mullins purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Shawn Mullins chose Wellston

Our cabin is very secluded but very easy to get to. I grew up in the area and always wanted a place of my own. We love the area and all that it offers. There are 2 ski resorts, a casino, 2 spas, snowmobile trails, hiking trails, and a ton of streams and lakes all within a 20 minute drive.

What makes this cabin unique

Our property borders hundreds of acres of Manistee National Forest which can be used by renters. Tons of wildlife in the area ( turkey, deer, bear, squirrel, great bird watching, and its VERY relaxing!!

Nice cabin, great location

  • 4 of 5
The cabin location was perfect. Many small cities and Cadillac were all within easy driving distance. It's just up the road from the Big M trail head, making it a perfect staging location for the North Country race. There are many, many trails within a short distance.

The cabin itself was clean and had everything we needed. It was perfect for 2 people, and you could also using the couch in the living room for extra sleeping space for another couple. The property is large, and the cabin is set back from the road. You can hear some road noise, but you can't see any other houses.

Shawn was very quick to respond to any questions I had and was very accommodating.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This was the ideal cabin for our family, which consists of two adults, two toddlers, and two lazy old dogs. I normally hate to sleep in hotel beds or use showers that are not my own, because I worry that they aren't clean. This house is immaculate and I never felt uncomfortable. Although this is a one-bedroom, there is a lot of space. The bedroom and bathroom and really good sized, and my boys loved "swimming" in the large tub. We all slept in the bedroom, so that my husband and I could watch movies or visit in the living room after the kids went to bed. We slept in the queen sized bed, and there was enough room for my 2 year old in his pack n play, and my 4 year old on the hide-a-bed.

I am from a nearby town, and it was really convenient to be able to visit my family but still have our own space. We spent one day at Sleeping Bear Dunes, which was about an hour drive. We spent another day at Portage Point beach (Lake Michigan) in Onekama, which is about a 1/2 hour away. In the evenings, we hung out at the cabin and had campfires. There is a small swing set in the yard, which my boys loved. There is also an outdoor dog kennel, which is an amazing feature. Shawn said they hadn't had a chance to do much with that yet since buying the property. It could use a little attention but seemed secure, and was something we were really excited to find.

This is getting long, but I wanted to mention all of the things that had been the most important to us. The owners are wonderful about returning phone calls and emails, and answering questions. The cabin has everything you could need for your stay- dishes, linens, etc. Just bring your clothes and food, and you will be all set. We will definitely stay here again!

Stillness and Silence

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a lovely place secluded in the woods to do some writing. This cabin was perfect. A lovely solid handcrafted cabin with charm. And I didn’t see another soul for the three days I was there. It was a short walk to the hiking trail head the big M. The stillness and silence was a treat for this city girl. It was pitch black at night and lovely to wake up to the sunrise in what appeared to be a handcrafted solid wood framed bed. My favorite spot in the cabin was in the wood low-back rocking chair right in front of the window looking into the national forest or watching the groundhog munch on his breakfast in the yard. It was a short drive to east to the beach and several other hiking trails up the road.

Owner's Response: Hey Jen, thank you so much for the review. One of the things that visitors love the most about our cabin is the privacy. The location is perfect because you're close to all the area has to offer and yet there are no neighbors in sight. My wife and I were honored to have someone stay with us who was actually writing a book about the area. We LOVE the Wellston area and all the amazing nearby activities and we love to share our little piece of Northern Michigan with guests who come back year after year. Hope to see you in the future!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent 5 nights at this cabin and had a great time. The wooded lot is fantastic and it's a very relaxing location. Proximity to town, local attractions, etc. is great (all within 15-20 min). We loved just being able to relax and get away from the chaos of everyday life. The bed was a bit small, but that's probably because we are used to a king. The property also has a target range (stacked railroad ties) and you can target practice right off the porch. We really loved this feature - it gave us something fun to do in between reading, watching tv, cooking, and playing cards. The host is great and wants to ensure you have a perfect trip. I would recommend this place and we hope to stay again soon! ~Kacy and Kevin

Cozy Cabin surrounded by an Abundance of Outdoor Opportunities

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I spent three delightful nights in this cozy cabin located in the rich Manistee National Forest surrounded by an abundance of nature. The cabin is in close proximity to three beautiful Michigan rivers and the Tippy Dam backwaters for canoeing, kayaking and fishing. The cabin was clean (shoes off at the door) with a sportsman decor along with knotty pine walls. We were pleased with the strong bathroom shower after a long day of canoeing and a nice surprise to have a washer and dryer available on site. We will return to this comfortable, relaxing and scenic spot to further enjoy the wilderness of northern Michigan.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the cabin with friends this past winter for a long weekend getaway. The property was fantastic, the cabin is immaculate. The perfect place for spending time outdoors and relaxing. I would highly recommend this rental. Owner was great at answering questions and recommending things to do and see. Will definitely be planning another trip there this year..........
