Enjoy tubing right from the cabin. Listen to birdsong as you relax in the hammock or enjoy roasting marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit. Fish the nearby 'Holy Waters' of the AuSable and grill your catch on the expansive deck overlooking the river.

Beautiful, spacious, secluded, and so much room!

  • 5 of 5

We went for just a quick 3 day escape and my only regret was we didn't have more time to enjoy it! This home is absolutely gorgeous with activities for everyone! The pictures really don't do justice for how spacious and gorgeous this house is. You are completely secluded so your comfortable allowing the kids to run around, scream, imaginative play outside, etc. Everything you could possibly need is supplied. We even enjoyed a game of dominoes! I would highly recommend this rental. very clean, very spacious, and a great place to meet up. Our family of 18 slept here comfortably and we still had beds open. The fire pit with all the chairs makes for a memory making night and the last day we even jumped in the canoe that was there and canoed the river that runs through the property. All our kids from age 2 to 14 enjoyed themselves completely and I never heard "I'm bored" and there is no internet here and only 1 TV so that is saying a lot for 8 kids! Thank you so much for providing a place for us to make such wonderful memories. Can't wait to return one day

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this cabin for 2 nights and we wanted so badly to stay a little longer... From the beginning I can say the pictures don't make justice to this place... The cabin is very spacious, the rustic decor suits perfectly and the homeliness and friendliness of the accommodation are perfect. We brought our dogs, who enjoyed running around outside, while we spent time around the fire pit. This cabin in the woods was exactly the escape we were looking for and can't wait to go back. Thank you!!!

Annual Canoe Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for my family and friends annual canoe weekend. Everyone enjoyed the cabin, location, and activities the cabin has to offer. This sits back off the road and with very few neighboring properties. So you don't have to worry about disrupting others. There's plenty of room to park vehicles, and the homeowners supply something for everyone, i.e. cards, games, tv, ping pong, camp fire, basketball, and the river. We would definitely rent it again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd vacation at this property for some of us. We knew after our first trip 3 years ago we wanted to go back - and with any luck we will make it back again! The cabin is open and spacious and has everything you need for a large group of people. The teenage boys loved the bunkhouse. We spent every night around the bonfire. The dogs and boys loved playing in the river. The property is large, quiet and secluded but close enough to wander into town if you want or need to. Traverse City was only about an hour away and the girls spent an afternoon there while the boys stayed back with the dogs & kids. We celebrated my 50th birthday while we were there and it was perfect. Grace is so great to work with, she could not makes things any easier.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends has been renting this Grayling cottage, and we could not have been any happier. The cottage was better than advertised and was able accommodate all of us for the 4 th of July weekend. The cottage is secluded with many amenities and also very close to everything. We will be coming back for years to come. This place really exceeded our expectations Thank You.
