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.

clean and beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, I fell in love at first sight. The outside was well maintained and the driveway was plowed for our winter vacation. Walking in the front door, I was immediately impressed by the beautiful decorations. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. There was more than enough space for the two of us. The jaccuzi and fireplace were wonderful and added to the relaxing atmosphere! We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Grayling area. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Fabulous Up North Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best cabins/cottages my family and I have been to! The place was very well kept and clean. From the moment we stepped into the cabin we felt like we were right at home! If you and your family are looking for a quiet get away from the daily hustle this is the place. We were able to reconnect as a family through movies and game nights. The hot tub room was a very nice added bonus for our children as well. We look forward to staying here again in the near future!

When I first walked into this cabin, it already felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to thank April and Charlie for having us at their wonderful cabin. We really appreciate that.

Secondly, the house is beautiful. And everything that we needed was there. You can tell when a house is humble or not and this house was extremely humble. From having all the items a house should have. Thank you and we will be coming again during the summer to have another great and fun experience.

Amazing, romantic get away!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is beautiful. It is even better than the pictures and descriptions. This was a perfect get away. The cabin was clean, organized and well stocked with everything. You can tell that this cabin is very well taken care of. April & Charlie also set out information and maps about surrounding areas, which is very considerate.

Things I loved:

- Watching the deer every morning and night that come to the feed they leave out.

- The romantic jacuzzi tub.

- Indoor AND outdoor firepit stocked with plenty of wood.

- Off the beaten path a little, not a lot of visible neighbors. Tons of privacy.

- Well stocked with towels, dishes, amenities.

- Super comfortable bed.

- Pet friendly with a fenced in backyard.

- Somewhat near a great little brewing company (Dead Bear Brewing Company).

- Close to tons of great hiking. (Make a bit of a drive to Highbank Trail, beautiful!)

Plus, it's so romantic that my boyfriend proposed to me here! We will be back to this cabin again and again. Thanks so much!

Excellent place

Everything was great inside and out! The dog loved the fenced in backyard! The bed was comfortable and the cabin was clean. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and watching the deer. It had everything you could possibly need! Great weekend getaway!

relaxation at its finest

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I live high stress lives, often causing us to be apart. Little trips like this are essential for us to relax and reconnect. We have stayed in cabins before in different areas. You never truelly know what you are going to get. Northern memories was exactly as described and so much more. From the moment we stepped in we felt welcomed, the personal note and bread gift and popcorn. The home is so adorably decorated and CLEAN. Everything was in good repair and well thought out. I loved the framed notes placed around with tips and directions. It was so much better then a paper taped to a wall (very helpful too). The size was great for just us but also would be comfortable if we ever took our whole family. I enjoyed the tranquility of the hot tub and comfort in a crazy game of monopoly in front of the fire. Thank you for allowing us this wonderful break.
