We are a humble couple with 4 adult children (2 in and 2 out of college). My husband and I ventured to this beautiful part of the state and fell in love with this area. After two+ years of remodeling and tweaking we're ready to share all of the fun we've had as a family with others who wish to do the same. We currently live mid-state and both are teachers.

Lori or Darren Mort purchased this house in 2003

Besides the spacious, comfortable living quarters with all the amenities you could want, the river really caught our attention because it is wide with a current that allows you to relax for a smooth ride whether you are canoeing, rafting, swimming, etc. This is also a designated trout stream area. The various trails are exciting and well manicured for quads, snowmobiles, motorcycles and horses. Most trail heads are within one mile from this property. So it makes for a fun stay no matter what the season happens to be!

Whether it's for one couple or quite a few with their families, this large 5 bedroom home has up and down decks with swing, picnic table, and patio furniture. There is a large fire ring out back with plenty of yard to play your favorite yard games. Bocce ball, croquet, volleyball and croquet gulf have been enjoyed. Back decks face the National Huron Forest. So much to do and see! If you need down time--it's here! If you are the active type, there are so many choices! Ideal location with 9 river inputs from Mio. Hence, the river rides can last from 1/2 hr. to 7+ hours long. Single or Small groups certainly can afford this type of fun!

EXCELLENT RENTAL FOR A LARGE GROUP!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect rental for a large group. Talk about all of the amenities you could ever need!!! My husband and 13 of his close friends had a great long weekend at this beautiful cabin. The owners are awesome to work with and the cabin has everything you need for a break from reality. Stocked kitchen, linens provided and even the canoes are included in the rental. This is truly an amazing escape. We will definitely be returning =)

FUN-FILLED FAMILY FIESTA!

  • 5 of 5
Our family, who range in age from 8 to 80 stayed at the Mort's vacation home in Mio over the labor day weekend and felt right at home from the moment we walked in. First of all there was something for everyone, the cooks in the family had a well stocked (pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc) kitchen that was open to the dining room and downstairs living areas (as well as an outside barbeque for grilling). The card players had a large dining room table where many 6-handed euchre games took place. The kids enjoyed the large screen tv, complete with The Three Stoges videos while the adults played cards.
We had ping pong tournaments, volleyball tournaments, pool tournaments, badminton tournaments (we provided the equipment for badminton, all other equipment was provided by the Morts), and we even devised our own obstacle course using the various yard games we found in the garage.
At night each of us had our own bed! Truthfully I haven't slept so well in several years.
I guess my best testament to the home, the atmosphere, and the endless amenities is that on my next trip to Mio I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. In the past we have rented several cabins side by side in Mio, but being able to stay in the same house, with so much space gave us so many more opportunities to make lasting family memories.

GREAT GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
First impression was that this place was totally awesome. Proved to be so. Minutes from the river (docking and unloading). Also perfect for hunting. Great outdoors feeling inside but still feel at home. There is plenty to keep busy and entertained. Highly recommended.

GREAT VACATION HOUSE FOR LARGE GROUP

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a long weekend with a group of friends in their 20's. Excellent place to relax with a large group. Lots of activities to do both inside and outside the house. The decorations and atmosphere was Up North to the MAX. The fire pit was large and already had plenty of seats out there. I highly recommend doing a lazy rive trip down the Au Sable River. There are a couple of companies that do the rentals right in Au Sable there so you only have to drive 10mins to get there.

The owners were very easy to communicate with and had no problems at all getting in and out of the place on time. They also promptly returned the security deposit.
