Amazing Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I decided to escape our usual noisy city/suburban lifestyle and venture to the wonderful town of Bellaire, Michigan. This cabin was absolutely perfect, 10/10 and if you are reading this, please do yourself the favor and stay here. Tucked away off a quite road, the pure silence of the woods and nature was the ultimate display of peace. The A Frame came equipped with everything we needed for a few days/nights. We came up during a massive snow storm which made our getaway more special I believe. Sitting by the fireplace was extremely cozy while the snow fell at night. One of the nights we went skiing at Shanty Creek (highly recommend) and the other night we went to the famous Short's Brewery. During one of the mornings we journeyed down to the river threw the trees on a special dock pathway and the view there was breathtaking! Overall, we will be coming back as soon as we find the time to! The cabin is simply flawless! The owners are so kind and will make sure you enjoy your stay!

PERFECT UP NORTH CABIN

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I were looking for a nice, peaceful weekend Up North and definitely found it with this cabin. The place was very charming, well-kept and proved to be everything we hoped for in a Winter Retreat. We enjoyed hiking around the property and down the boardwalk to the river. It was a beautiful, picturesque setting in the snow. We also ventured to Traverse City for an afternoon and snowshoe hiked through Sleeping Bear Dunes. Shorts Brewery lived up to the hype and was a short 10 minute drive from the cabin. Kristi was extremely responsive and available to answer any questions or concerns we experienced. I would highly, highly recommend this cabin. We hope to return next year.

Very nice cabin

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in the woods at this very nice cabin. The place is nicely furnished and is just the right size for a couple. We enjoyed our walks to the grass river where spent hours kayaking and boating. We were also up there at the peak of berry picking so we also had a great time picking cherries and raspberries. All and all it was a very nice place for a getaway. We will be back next year!

Looking for an up north retreat and we found it !!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely perfect getaway place for a couple. We are serious foodies - we shopped at local farmers markets and then cooked fabulous meals in the incredibly clean and well-outfitted kitchen as well as on the grill outside. Dinner on the deck when weather permitted and, if not, at the kitchen table. Nightly fires outside in the fire pit on the very private grounds. Very comfortable living area for reading and movie watching. Bedroom and bathroom fit the bill. We also appreciated the washing machine and dryer. Great location too. We would return in a heart beat !

Perfect couple retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I went here for a long weekend in october for a quick honeymoon. The cabin was so nice. When we arrive everything was so clean and organized. Place was super cozy and a great place for two. We used the fire place every night and loved the dock on the river. The first night we went out to "Shorts Brewery", the food and beer was amazing and it was only 15 minuets away. We also went to one of the resorts around Bellaire food was great and the view we had at our dinner table looking over the lake at dusk was awesome! Theres plenty of places to hike or ride bikes. Theres also a super cute winery "Torch Lake Winery" we went to right before they closed one night. We stayed for an hour drinking wine and talking to the owners. My wife and I have been to Traverse City and gone wine tasting and "Torch Lake Winery" was by far our favorite! The couple who owns the cabin went above and beyond what they should have to make us feel comfortable at there cabin. We plan on using the cabin again and telling all our friends who want a nice quite place to go, to go to this cabin.

Wonderful! Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went here for our short honeymoon. We could not have been more thrilled to have found this place. It looks exactly like the pictures! It was peaceful, romantic, quiet, and the owners were exceptional. We have nothing but good to say about this place. It was clean, cute, and comfortable. We hope to go back here sometime in our future. I could go on and on about this place. Everything about it was perfect and wonderful. The other reviews could not be more true! If you are looking for a get away with your significant other this is the place!
