About Lester Sproessig

Hello, my name is Les and I am the owner of CABIN IN THE PINES. This was my home for many years and I loved the peace and quiet here so much that I decided to keep the house and share it with everyone else interested in getting away from it all. I am back working in the city now, but I still enjoy coming Up North to my Gladwin cabin and relaxing.

Lester Sproessig purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Lester Sproessig chose Gladwin

When I lived here, I enjoyed the private, peaceful, seclusion of this property and cabin, also the abundant wildlife viewed from it. Work brought me back to the city but I refuse to let go of my wilderness; CABIN IN THE PINES. I decided that I would like to share this peaceful setting with other people in hopes that they would get the same enjoyment and relaxation away from the hustle bustle of every day life.

What makes this chalet unique

The secluded and private location of this home, not a neighbor's home in sight makes it a great get away from the busy city life! Deer, Geese, Squirrels, Turkey and Ruffed Grouse will be your neighbors now.

640 ft off the paved road and hidden among the pines, but close to many towns and recreational activities.

The Tittabawasee River, with multiple boat launches to access different sections of the river, are all minutes away.

The Wixom Lake section is 20 mi. of boating.

Stop along the river for lunch at Juicy Bones Bar and Grill or gas, pizza and ice cream at other businesses on the river.

Park at Pontoon Alley on the river and enjoy the shallow sandy bottom with many other sun seekers.

Don't forget the great fishing on the river, accessible by shore or dock.

Pontoon and fishing boat rentals are available at several businesses along the river.

The Rifle, Cedar, Muskegon and Tittabawassee Rivers all offer canoe, kayak, and tubing rentals, all close enough for a day trip.

Downtown Gladwin offers the Riverwalk Trail a 1.3 mi. Asphalt trail along the Cedar River for walking, jogging, skating, biking and cross country skiing. Riverwalk Place, conveniently located on the trail is a shopping and dining experience. Stop for a coffee, ice cream, lunch dinner or even enjoy their spa!

Gladwin City Park offers a daily pass to use their beach and tennis courts.

Gladwin and the surrounding area is home to many Amish Community's, along the roads you will find Amish Family's selling their wares.

Travel the back roads and find Amish hardware's, sawmills and other Amish businesses. Looking for more excitement? The Soaring Eagle Casino, in Mt. Pleasant, Mi. is only a 40 mi. Ride. On your way back to the cabin stop at Jays Sporting Goods in Clare, Mi. Where you will find huge selection of hunting, camping and sporting goods. With all the daily activities in the area to keep you busy, you will truly enjoy a relaxing evening at CABIN IN THE PINES, when you return.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful cabin. 4-6 inches of fresh snow helped with the winter ambiance. 1st winter bonfire in the snow, awesome, thanks Les.

Great place and beautiful property. Loved watching the deer feeding and drinking at dusk

Guys mini-vacation

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough. Owner was accommodating. Cabin had everything you needed. The pictures really do it no justice, plenty of room for five guys. Everything in the cabin is clean and solid. Property is gorgeous. Pellet stove is very nice, tv works good, beds are comfy, refrigerator is cold, coffee maker works, just fantastic. Front porch and view from dining table are the two best spots on the property. We will rent again. Just a great set-up. Don't worry! Everything you need!

Quiet week for the Family

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 8 month old daughter, and myself stayed the week at "Cabin in the Pines". As other reviews mentioned, it is even nicer than the photos suggest. The description in the listing is very accurate. The stairs were not a problem for us, we quickly became accustomed to them. I even went up and down them in the middle of the night to attend to my daughter. The house was very clean, cozy, and inviting. We spent most of the week relaxing and resting. Every day we found a new place nearby to go for a run or walk. Gladwin provided us with a nice bakery (Blue Ribbon Bakery) and coffee shop (Northern Espresso) to visit. The Pierre-Marquette rail trail is a about 20-25min away and is lovely for a walk, run or bike ride.

Our interaction with Les (the owner) was very positive. I called him during the week with a question and he immediately responded to my voicemail. Our deposit was promptly returned to us (within days) of our return home!

I have nothing negative to comment on - we had a very positive experience. I would recommend this place to a friend or relative who was looking to unplug and unwind. I definitely can see us staying here again in the future.

Love this rental home

  • 5 of 5
Les, we had such a wonderful time at your property. The house was great, fishing was really fun and the weather was absolutely gorgeous. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation! Thank you so much!! We truly enjoyed ourselves.

Just a quick note also to let you know that we came across two bee hives of some sort in the ground. One next to the pond and the other across from the cabin on the side by your stoage unit. My husband bought some spray for them and he marked them both with sticks that are standing up so others wouldnt walk over them by accident.

Beautiful, clean cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Les clearly thought of everything - the cabin was stocked with all the necessary amenities. It made our stay hassle-free.

The pictures really do not do this place justice. I was impressed with the beauty and cleanliness.

I loved that the cabin is secluded, and not visible from the main road. It added to the peacefulness.

The diners in the area offer excellent food as well.

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I traveled to the Wooden Shoe area to help my Mother out who lives up there. We needed a close place and this was only two miles away. Each day we would go to her house and work and then come back to the cabin to relax and unwind. This place was the best. The quiet, calm atmosphere was just what we needed. Getting up with a cup of coffee and sitting out front and just looking at the pond started each day out great. Les thank you so much for all your help. The cabin was better than expected and just perfect for what we needed. I hope to come back for an actual "vacation" soon.

Thanks again.
