Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Maureen



I tried to submit a review tonight and the website wouldn't accept it,

saying it encountered an error, so here is my review (see below):





An enjoyable stay for all three generations of us!



Grams, Gramps, son, daughter-in-law, all three grandkids and two dogs - we

all had a really great time at Maureen's cabin in the north woods. It felt

like magic when a deer greeted us in the driveway upon our arrival. The

cabin was lovely - spacious, cheery, clean, beds comfortable, loved the

high ceiling in the great room, plenty of lighting, kitchen well equipped,

and we all made good use of the covered front porch where Grams was twice

buzzed by curious hummingbirds while relaxing in one of the rocking chairs

there. Grownups, kids, and dogs all found plenty to do down by the river,

wading and swimming, catching crawdads and fish, paddling the kayaks and

rubber raft, panning for gold (our grandson found a tiny grain of gold in

the black sand of the river!), and chilling out on the covered swinging

bench (hummingbirds there, too!). Found a Pictionary game among the games

provided and had a blast playing it in the evening, laughing our heads off!

We even watched a Tigers game on TV one day - and they won! Hartwick Pines

State Park nearby was a nice surprise - be sure to check out the logging

camp museum. The bakery in Grayling is something special and the staff at

the nearby gift shop so friendly, helping us find the site of Pere Cheney,

a local ghost town. And Maureen is the perfect balance of gracious and

professional - thank you Maureen!



Thanks again!



Cordially,



Gregg

Another lovely stay at the Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay, and like the first everything was in order - clean; plenty of towels, soap, paper good; extras in the cabinets of things we might have forgotten. Electronics, games, and books were available if desired. There was plenty of light and comfortable chairs for reading. Maureen was very responsive to my questions and flexible about a possible early check in. It was a pleasure to stay here again.

Truly a Cabin in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

This is our 3rd year coming to the RiverFront Cabin. We love the cross country trail at Hartwick Pines which is so close and convenient. This year the temperatures were so cold that we spent more time just relaxing in this beautiful setting. We watched deer wander through the woods and walked around the beautiful wooded area and admired the beautiful homes. The Cabin has always been very clean, in great repair, kitchen is well stocked (we eat all our meals here), and so comfortable for 2 couples to just hang out and have a great time in the Northern woods. We highly recommend and hope to return next year. We do miss (sort of) not having wifi.

lovely place to spend Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights at Maureen's cabin over Christmas 2016 and it was magical. The cabin is well designed, well stocked, and very clean. We were a three-generation party of six and didn't feel crowded even though the cabin isn't huge. We enjoyed tubing at Hanson Hills and walking on the dirt roads around the cabin, and the kids enjoyed playing in the snow. Looking forward to coming back when the fish are awake!
