About Shawn Mullins

My wife and I both work full time and we have 3 little red heads. We love to travel and love sharing our cabin with other people and families. We LOVE this part of Michigan and feel like it is truly God's country. We get great satisfaction when happy customers call after their stay and tell us how much they enjoyed the cabin and how beautiful it is in that part of the state. We take pride in our place and can assure you that it will be clean and comfortable!

Shawn Mullins purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Shawn Mullins chose Northern Michigan

Our cabin is very secluded but very easy to get to. I grew up in the area and always wanted a place of my own. We love the area and all that it offers. There are 2 ski resorts, a casino, 2 spas, snowmobile trails, hiking trails, and a ton of streams and lakes all within a 20 minute drive.

What makes this cabin unique

Our property borders hundreds of acres of Manistee National Forest which can be used by renters. Tons of wildlife in the area ( turkey, deer, bear, squirrel, great bird watching, and its VERY relaxing!!

Very clean and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was so clean!! It had cable, washer and dryer, and a fire ring. I felt at home while away from home! Shawn was great to work with and answered any questions we had. I have already recommended the cabin to friends. It is about 20 minutes from town, but it is right next to great places to hike. We are not fishers, but I know it is a great place to stay if you fish! It was a nice quiet weekend away from home with hiking, smores, and alone time!
