About Dennis Giffels

The little town Wellston is actually my hometown. I graduated from Brethren High School, and grew up fishing every fishing hole, and bicycling all over Wellston, Irons and Brethren, skiing and snowmobiling (of course). After a couple of decades in environmental drilling, I moved on to get my contractor's license and real estate license, and have spent the last 5 years learning more about creating an amazing vacation rental than I ever thought I would know. I pride myself on offering a vacation home where guests are even more impressed when they arrive than when they see the listing online. I also know how important it is for families to have a space to share and be comfortable in. When I find myself saying, 'you know, it would be great to have...', I start working on making it happen for my customers.

Dennis Giffels purchased this house in 1971

Why Dennis Giffels chose Wellston

Wellston is such a hidden treasure. And this home is right in the middle of all of it. There's an incredible playground across the street. The beautiful beach at Crystal Lake is 3 blocks away. Fishing within walking distance. And we've all watched the Dublin store transform into the local phenomenon it is, with it's famous Dublin Jerky. Out on the main drag, there is the White Tail Party Store, M-55 Market (great steaks!!!), The Cozy Kitchen, Fisherman's Headquarters. As you head into Dublin, there's also Gradma's Kitchen for ice cream treats, and Dublin Fudge. Keep on going to Irons, and you'll run into Jackie's, the Oak Grove Tavern, and the Iron's Cafe. Also just reopened 'The historical Wellston Inn' great place for breakfast, lunch & dinner and is just a short walk from the property!

What makes this house unique

The 6 person Hot Tub & Gazebo has been completed and is ready for your enjoyment!! Plus LCD TV's in every bedroom. We also have installed 2 beautiful electric fireplaces, one in the living area & one in a bedroom. We already have A/C, WiFi, big screen plasma TV in the living room, Blue Ray, and a fabulous kitchen set-up. Little extras matter - supplies well stocked.. That's why I try to make sure you have starters of all the extras many other places don't provide - hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, paper products, trash bags, plenty of outdoor seating. Suggestions for extra amenities welcome!

Great Girls Get Away Spot

  • 5 of 5
This was an awesome Girls Getaway. The house was beautiful, very clean, and well stocked with kitchen spices and equipment. The linens were plentiful, although we did bring our own beach blankets for use in the wonderful hot tub. The only little thing that we might recommend is some felt pieces on the chair legs bottoms in the dining room as the chairs are noisy and hard to move, but very spacious for great meal times. The walk in shower was one of my favorite features. The front room was very comfortable with more than enough seating that we could sprawl out, whether it was morning devotions or movies and stand up comedians on DVD in the evening. We did some local wine tasting and "Hopps and Props" in Manistee. Even though the weather was not the greatest, the house and the area entertainment was not lacking at all. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a vacation spot in any season!

Excellent four season vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
Accommodations are very clean; a generous number of towels are supplied, and the beds and bunks are very comfortable.

This place is very cozy if there's snow on the ground, and the hot tub is very nice even if it is cold out. I'm interested in coming back in the summer when we could have a fire out back or check out the lake nearby.

This is an excellent vacation home, and it's very spacious - we had nine people for the weekend and it was great.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5
The hot tub is definitely what caught our eye! Even though we have one of our own (that we don't seem to have time to use.) I new this would get used after our days of snowmobiling. The home was very nice, comfortable and clean. Had everything we needed. The trails happened to be excellent! We will be back. Thank you!

Sledding never better!

  • 5 of 5
We decided to stay in eastern part of Michigan instead of all the way to the western UP, and saved 5 hours of drive from NW Indiana. Boy we were right on! Great time on the trails, covered about 500 miles and Dennis's home couldn't have been a better place to start our mornings and end our long days! Great central location to trail systems and services, clean and fresh home, and terrific amenities like HD tv's, wifi and loaded DISH - but best of all the hottub, woohoo! We'll be back next year!
