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.
Les 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.

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