No need to look any further!

This is the perfect rental for group get aways. The minute you walk in you know it was built with love and care. It is spacious and cozy and you will feel right at home. The fireplace is awesome with a gas starter for a log buring fire. You can cross country ski right out the front door and over to Crystal. Our group was there for a ski weekend, but plan to return in the summer for biking and kayaking. I highly recommend this home away from home!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous. The log cabin up north feel is exactly what we were looking for when we rented this place. Its within easy driving distance to the Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City, both places we visited and loved. The guest book is a great touch and we enjoyed reading through over ten years of visits from Tims family and renters. There was wood for both the fireplace and firepit outside. Although its a steep climb down to the river we enjoyed going down there and I tried my hand at river fishing. Skunked! The house has two full bathrooms and will comfortably sleep 8. There is a gas grill and charcoal grill along with a full kitchen. I have already told all of my friends about this place and have it saved for future getaway.

Beautiful cabin and property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at the cabin on Betsie River. It was incredible. My sister's family and our family both stayed and it was perfect. We had plenty of room. The kitchen was great. We made a lot of meals there. The fire pit was so fun for the kids. The kids swam and fished in the river every day. The last day we went to the sleeping bear dunes and I think the kids would have rather stayed at the cabin! The cabin itself is beautiful. It has comfortable beds and was extremely clean and we'll stocked with everything to make a meal. The views are beautiful and the property is private. There is a tiny grocery store up the road and Crystal mountain is about a mile away. We loved it and hope to return and create more memories!
