About April Bertram

My husband and I have been coming up north to Grayling since 1983. We always enjoyed snowmobiling, fishing, and hunting. We wanted to provide a place for people to create their own Northern Memories.

April Bertram purchased this cabin in 2012

Why April Bertram chose Northern Michigan

We bought this property because we love the AuSable River and the surrounding area. We enjoy nature walks, fly-fishing, snowmobiling and swimming in the spring fed lake Kneff Lake

What makes this cabin unique

A unique benefit to our cabin is the Jacuzzi room, where we hope that you will enjoy it as much as us and make Northern Memories.

Relaxing, Quiet, and Well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in "borrowed" homes for many vacations and this one is the most comfortable and well-appointed to date. The kitchen has everything you could want to cook with and the house feels like you are staying with family, not as if someone expected you to ruin something or steal something so they left junk, or as another guest so eloquently put it in the guest book, OPD's (other people's discards)! This home is really a wonderful place to call home base or to just call home for a few days. It is well located, easy to find, and not too close to anyone else. The privacy fence was appreciated, as was the patio table and chairs, as well as the constant entertainment the wildlife provided. We used the Jacuzzi room to watch TV, Jacuzzi, watch the squirrels and birds, to read, and just to sit a while. I think we used just about everything and all was wonderful. The proprietors, April and Charlie, think of everything, even breakfast! Two thumbs up for sure! Hope to come back one day.

Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

Another great time in the cabin. Being that we were there to fish, the location was perfect. Having A/C was outstanding as the weather got rather hot. WiFi system is great. Being in the medical field, being able to stay in contact with the office made it much easier for me. The coffee cake was great and had a short lifespan. The dog again really enjoyed his time in the backyard. Didn't catch a chipmunk thank goodness. Overall, my brother and his son and me really enjoyed our time in your cabin. We are planning on returning next year.

Beautiful home and excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully furnished and provides all the comforts of home, and then some! My wife and I celebrated our anniversary weekend here and really enjoyed ourselves. The fireplace is thermostat driven so it shuts off when it gets too warm. The hot-tub is actually an artesian well, which meant no harsh chemicals, and it stayed hot for more than an entire movie. The bed has a memory foam mattress topper which was a wonderfully comfortable surprise. The back yard has a big fire pit, a bird feeder, a tether-ball, and horseshoes. From the time we arrived we felt right at home. We shopped for some groceries first and ended up not needing some of it because so much was already provided, such as coffee, hot chocolate, and fresh cinnamon bread from the local bakery. We also enjoyed a dinner at the new restaurant Ray's on the river and it had excellent BBQ chicken. We will definitely be keeping this location in mind for future weekends away!
