Wonderful Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and grounds are splendid and exactly as described in listing. We enjoyed the comforts of the well appointed cabin, cozy outdoor campfires, long walks and the calming river. Just as if you were at your own family cabin. We saw plenty of deer and local creatures while exploring the area. We could not have asked for a better experience. We WILL be back and, WILL recommend to family and friends. BTW.... Maureen, the owner was a pleasure to deal with!

Thank you again Maureen!

Magnificent!!! Over the years I have rented several cabins across Northern Michigan and I have never come across a more beautiful, CLEAN, well maintained, peaceful place.

Winter weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice cabin. We watched 8 deer playing in the back yard not even 100 feet from the living room.

Fall Break Weekend

We stayed here for a long fall break weekend with our four children and had a wonderful time at the cabin. The cabin was very clean, cozy and well stocked with all the items we needed for cooking meals, playing games and enjoying the outdoors. Thanks Maureen!

Bird hunting getaway

  • 5 of 5

My father and I rented the cabin for the week of October 11-18, 2015. It is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly fit our needs. It is in immaculate condition. All of the appliances are in good condition (stove, gas oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer, etc...) In the evenings, we watched the MLB playoffs on the satellite TV. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable as well. The wifi connection worked well, so I was able to check my emails at will.

The cabin is in close proximity to thousands of acres of public land open to hunting and other outdoor recreation. We did not have to travel far at all to hunt.

The cabin is also only about 15 minutes from the Town of Grayling, so you are never too far from civilization, so to speak.

We hope to come back. I highly recommend this property to any group looking to rent a clean, comfortable home away from home in Northern Michigan.

Wonderful, Peaceful Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cabin that has everything to make you feel at home. Maureen is wonderful to deal with and this location can't be beat. The pictures don't do this place justice and you will sleep will in the quiet! We had multiple deer sightings and the walk to the river is awesome.
