Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I along with our two dogs enjoyed a weeklong stay over the Christmas/New Year's holiday. We had a wonderful time! The cabin was warm, cozy, well-equipped and exceptionally clean and well-stocked. Thanks to the wireless internet connection, my husband was able to work away from home, allowing for our "stolen" vacation. He hunted the area for ruffed grouse after breakfast, at lunch, and every evening. We also enjoyed a fire (after digging the pit out of a foot of snow :)), went sledding down the perfect hill just outside the back door (thanks for the sled!), and did a lot of snowshoeing. There's a 9-mile all purpose trail mere steps from the cabin. It is perfectly situated. The area was peaceful and beautiful. The folks at the general store were very friendly, as well. We truly enjoyed our stay. It was a perfect way to bring in the New Year and close out the old one! It's only about 10-15 minutes from Munising, as well. We love this area! Thanks so much for sharing your home.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Maplr Ridge is a great house. The house is extremely clean and well maintained. Wireless access is a plus and a must with teenagers! So is the laundry room. Property managers were easy to work with and returned emails quickly. They even called to let us know the house was ready a few hours earlier than our arrival time. There is so much to do and see in the UP. It is an outdoor lovers mecca. Maple Ridge is a perfect base camp. We highly recommend it.

Maple Ridge Cottage is lovely! Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Maple Ridge Cottage is a lovely, well-equipped cottage. It's location is perfect....Quiet and peaceful. But, close to gorgeous hiking trails and lakes and to Munising. Maple Ridge is exceptionally clean and well maintained. We loved our evening BBQ's and camp fires and enjoyed many a long evening on the beautiful deck. Maple Ridge has everything you need for a perfect family vacation. It is AWESOME!!

Very impressive, Worked perfect for our vacation.

  • 4 of 5

As soon as we walked in, we fell in love with the cabin. The pictures do NOT do it justice. It was beautiful, large, comfortable and had every possible need met! You truly only need to bring food, clothes & hygiene items. The kids had a blast. Plenty of play room - indoors and out. Was very close to the city for entertainment & needed items. More than enough extra bedding & towels. The WiFi was a nice accommodation, especially when looking up local attractions and uploading pictures to social media! There was also a binder that had thorough information for area attractions. Lisa was amazing to work with. Great communication and on top of everything!

Overall, we all enjoyed it very much and can't wait to come back!

Clean and secluded

  • 5 of 5

Maple Ridge is a very beautiful and clean cottage. We loved its open floor plan, unique furnitures, and how secluded it was. The person whom we worked with was very helpful and quick to respond to any of our questions/concerns. We would definitely stay at a Hiawatha's Vacation Home again!

Beautiful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This cabin turned out to be an excellent home to host my family while they were in from out of town visiting. The cabin is furnished extremely well...they have literally thought of everything! Even had baby items (baby gate/bath/bouncy chair) which all came in handy! The cabin is much more modern than I expected and comfortably accommodated three couples and a couple of children. Only wish is that the weather was nicer so that we could have enjoyed outdoors as well. Would recommend Maple Ridge to anyone! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!

Maple Ridge

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I visited the Upper Peninsula for the first time in August, 2011. We were so impressed with Maple Ridge! It was so clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked-- we couldn't ask for anything more. We truly enjoyed the peace and quiet. We fished at Pete's Lake, explored the Munising area and saw many beautiful waterfalls and lighthouses. We would definitely recommend Maple Ridge to anyone visiting the UP. We have stayed at many places around the country and both agree Maple Ridge was the nicest place we have ever stayed. Thanks, Lisa, for making our first trip to the UP a wonderful memory !
