This was our first "Home Away" experience. We celebrated Christmas there. On our way up to the "north" we didn't have a placed booked. We found this one called Jangle and she got us right in. We had never been up to the UP so we didn't know what to expect. We were hoping for snow since the kids had never seen it. We didn't experience the snow but the cold weather was plenty for us Floridian. Better spent in 30* weather than hot and humid Florida Christmas. All I have to say that I totally recommend this cabin to anyone! The gals who helped us were so helpful and accommodating. We never once had to call them for anything because we had everything we needed! The cabin is beautiful and VERY WELL built. Not once did we feel cold or chilly. We woke up feeling refreshed and warm. :) As a family of 9 we had no problems accomodating the children. They had a blast playing on the Dunes and when they were tired we had plenty of channels to watch those holiday movies, wifi connection to update the awesome vacation on Facebook, and supplied board games to play. I think my boys were in Risk heaven. :) The view was amazing and the place while feeling very cozy and intimate. We loved burning the chopped wood that was available to us on the wood burning stove. Had a great Christmas Eve meal on the beautiful dining room table. Also had a washer and dryer which is a must with lots of people in the family. We also went site seeing to Pictured Rock National Park which I highly recommend. It was beautiful!! We didn't get a chance to go see the huge waterfall they have up there...maybe next time! We miss the UP! Some of the kids have said they want to move there. Haha!!
