It was fabulous.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this beautiful log home. It was peaceful and acommodating. A small path to the Au Sable was very intimate and beautiful. I will look forward to hopefully going back next year.

Secluded, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a vacation rental and I was extremely pleased with everything....from the booking experience, to the owners friendliness in answering so many of my questions, to the actual vacation itself.

We found the property to be just as described to us. I wanted something private and on water and I received that. The cabin was beautiful inside and out. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the natural surroundings and one could easily walk on the road for miles and enjoy the scenery. The kitchen was important to me. Due to my husband medical nutritional needs, I spend a lot of time preparing food. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything I needed. The time that we were there had some pretty warm days. Since there is no A/C, the windows and doors were open almost all the time and this would normally not be a problem. Again, with my husbands medical condition, he rests/sleeps frequently throughout the day. With an Army Air training facility nearby, we found the frequent jet flyovers in the afternoon, and helicopter flyovers in the evening to be slightly unwelcome but not too disturbing. The river was clean and very enjoyable to float in. I would recommend this property for anyone needing a relaxing getaway. Once we arrived, we never left the property except for some walking right around the area. There are plenty of things to keep you entertained right there, but Grayling is a short drive into town and appeared to be a town full of activity. Thanks again to Maureen for sharing such a lovely property with us.

Slice of heaven in Grayling!!! BEAUTIFUL!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough positive things about this cabin and the owner, Maureen. Everything is as described and better! Maureen, was readily available for questions, and went over and above for our family. If you are looking for a very peaceful, relaxing vacation, this is the place. We saw deer, black squirrels, blue jays, more deer, rabbits, and MORE deer!! This place is a little piece of heaven on earth! We will be back next year! Thank you, Maureen.

Peace and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Prior to moving to NC from MI 10 years ago we came to this area to camp, fish and hike every chance we had. This cabin was the perfect place to stay and do just that. It is very comfortable and accommodating. A true home away from home. The fishing is a little tight so bring your little "flea flicker". But calm and gentle. Perfect for a nice wade on a warm summer day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will most definitely be back!

Adventure at Moons Town

  • 5 of 5

Listing description was accurate regarding location, layout, amenities and local activities/events. Property was actually undersold for the enjoyment and ambiance that it created.

The property was clean and well maintained. A perfect marriage of human comforts and natural environment.

Maureen Moon was an excellent hostess in absence-going over and beyond what would be required even at the highest levels. The customer service was tremendous and we felt as if we were part of her family during our stay.

We would highly recommend this property to one and all. Definitely will be revisiting in various seasons going forward.

We enjoyed the canoeing, kayaking and fishing available in the area and the Grayling Restaurant was a breath of local flavor that we enjoyed immensely.
