Grayling Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 4

Built in the 1940's by famed fly fishing guide Jim Wakeley, our 'River Cabin' is located at the historic Wakeley Bridge. 'Uncle Jim' purchased the property during World War II and began developing the property one building at a time. As a second generation fly fishing guide, my family and I are working to keep the memory of Jim Wakeley alive and share our love of the river. The cabin is nestled along the works famous 'Holy Waters', a 'fly's only', 'catch and release' section on the AuSable. The cabin is just a short drive to the North and South Branches of the river.

Canoe and kayak rentals are available on site for rental; along with the opportunity to hire Capt. Dave to take you on a memorable fly fishing float on the beautiful AuSable.

For the golf enthusiast we are only a short drive away from both, Forest Dunes Golf Club and Garland Golf Resort. For the hikers, bikers and bird watchers the cabin is three miles from Wakeley Lake, a beautiful part of the Huron-Mainistee National Forest area with miles of trails with loon and eagle sightings on a regular basis.

The quiet and cozy cabin offers two bedrooms with a full size bed in each, full kitchen with living area including a couch, for additional sleeping. Dishes and linens are supplied along with a charcoal grill. There is a riverside fire pit for enjoying the summer evenings.

Whether you are fly-fishing, canoeing or simply relaxing our cabin provides it all.

About Colleen Wyss

Second generation fly fishing guide taught by the famed Jim Wakeley. My wife and I bought the property in 1978 raised our three children here and continue to enjoy having our four grandchildren enjoy it also.

Colleen Wyss purchased this cabin in 1978

Why Colleen Wyss chose Grayling

Our Aunt wanted the property to stay in the family so after the sudden death of our Uncle Jim we bought it from her to continue the traditions that they started.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the River and cannot imagine ever not being here. The view of the River is spectacular and fishing is

great. So nice to be able to walk out and be right at the riverfront.

We stayed a few days this past week and thoroughly enjoyed the cabin, grounds, proximity to the river, and general serenity of the entire atmosphere. The cabin is very efficient and very clean. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
