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.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot to spend a long weekend. The "cottage" (it is a home) was much more than we expected. Loved having all the conveniences of a fully stocked home including satellite, WI-FI, washer, dryer, dishwasher, etc. We were able to ride our side by sides right from the driveway to the trails. The abundance of chairs for outside was great for spending time with friends around the campfire. We'll be back for sure! Dealing with Lisa the owner was above and beyond. Thanks for everything!

Very clean and well appointed. We were bummed we didn't get the chance to use the fire pit. Owners responded quickly to all inquiries. We would definitely stay there again!

We had a great time!!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Michigan and enjoyed the week. Maple Ridge was a great place to stay! Maple Ridge was well kept and was beautiful! We had everything we needed, it was our home away from home. We were able to rent a pontoon at the store right up the way from the cabin which was great! We had many adventures and have made great memories! Thanks Lisa for making everything easy for us!

Beautiful, clean, perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We really love the location. It's closeness to Munising and trails and being out in nature. We love the convenience and space in the home. My granddaughters really loved the family Room and the toys that they could play with during the rainy days. It smelled clean and was immaculate and had everything we needed to have a great long weekend there.

Hiawatha's Hideaway and Maple Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We have been using the services of Hiawatha's Hideaway's Vacation Homes for many many years. They never disappoint! The communication is always timely and professional. The homes we have had the pleasure of staying are always well stocked with the basics, they are neat and clean--we love them. I highly recommend working with Hiawatha's Hideaway Vacation Homes and staying at any of their properties. EXCELLENCE!

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.
