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

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.

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.
