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.

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 !

We had a group of (6) guys stay for a long snowmobiling weekend this past weekend, left on Sunday 1/17/10. Place was better than expected. (6) places to sleep, so everyone had their own bed. Great water, and water pressure, and hott water. Real clean, perfect getaway. General store 1/4 mile away. Snowmobile trails were approx 1/2 mile down the main rd., real easy to get to though. Everyone in our group was impressed with the atmoshere. Totally stocked kitchen for cooking. Even a garage, that we were lucky not to need to use for any repair work. Definitley will go back next time we're in the UP riding...

My son and I stayed at Mapleridge this past weekend. I must say, this place is CLEAN!!! Everything about it was comfortable and nice. When they say there is ample firewood, they mean it. I am looking forward to coming back with my boyfriend for another stay. Thanks, Lisa, for making sure everything went smooth for us. We'll be back!
