Ski weekend (Downhill and Cross Country at Caberfae

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine (4 adults/ 5 kids) were comfortable in the basecamp. Plenty of room and beds for all. The property is next to Manistee National Forest and is in a beautiful forested setting. It was ~20 miles from Caberfae via any easy drive for great skiing.

Base Camp

  • 4 of 5

Great location in the middle of no-where (except there is an awesome general store right around the corner with every meat you ever wanted). Perfect for outdoor people. The stars and meteor showers were incredibly bright. lots of outdoor electric ports for tents and rv's. Fire pit was awesome.

We spotted a 5 lined, blue skink. First one I've ever seen in michigan.

Thanks for letting us rent your cabin.

Great stay and highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to rent out. The home was in great shape and everything was very convenient. Almost everything is provided so that cut down on packing. Rose (owner) was very accomodating and great to do business with. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone, ranging from small to large groups.

Irons Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay, from the pictures you expect a different place (from the outside, but it is still a very nice rental. Plenty of living space and kept very clean. It was nice to have your own kitchen and washer and dryer. Outside there is a nice fire pit to enjoy. Overall our stay was very enjoyable here.

Peaceful enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

Clean, convenient and was great for our group. Close to Irons and all the other places we wanted to go to. Living room is quite comfortable and all of us could sit around and talk. Firepit was great as well.

We recommend "Bob's Country Kitchen" on Twin Creek Road south of 11 mile road for breakfast!!!!
