About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Our cabin is set up to accomodate couples, friends and families with 'feel at home' lodging. It's a great place to bring your clubs and play golf or your fishing gear and take advantage of some of the best Salmon, Trout and Steelhead fishing in North America. The cabin is unpretentious on the outside but a 4-star hotel inside with a relaxing view of the Devils Hole bend of the Muskegon river. Our vacation home has been professionally designed and decorated and it shows. We cater to anyone who enjoys spending time in a National Forest. We have all new stainless kithcen appliances, large flat screen HD TV with full cable and great wifi for internet connections, air conditioning, washer/dryer, outdoor grill, firepit etc. to make your stay more comfortable. Our home is freshly remodeled from top to bottom. It is exceptionally clean and completly furnished with everything you would need for a great stay. Please visit our website for more details...

Keywords: Our 850 s.f. cabin is situated at 2485 Muskegon Blvd on the steep high bank within the Devils Hole Bend of the Muskegon River. Upstream about 3.5 miles from the small town of Newaygo, just below the Thornapple boat launch. Nestled within the Manistee National Forest our small neighborhood shares the Manistee with turkey, deer and black bear. Considered a fly fishing haven for brown trout, rainbow trout, steelhead and salmon, the river is suited to wading, drift fishing, kayaking and canoeing.

Enjoy an outstanding view down to the river while maintaining the feeling of total seclusion as your nestled within 100' tall hardwood trees. We are set up with 5 beds in 3 rooms (1 queen bed, 2 fulls and 2 twins), a fully stocked kitchen, linens and towels. Why stay at a hotel/motel when you can comfortly stay at our home. We cater to those who want to spend a few relaxing days fishing, canoeing, kayaking and golfing. We have fishing guides if you are som inlclined, I would not recommend being able to fish on the river in front of our cabin because of the steep access.

About The Owner

We live in Texas but my wife is from Michigan and we travel up 4-5 times per year to fish and visit her family. I am a Landscape Architect and my wife is in the Insurance industry.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why The Owner chose Western Michigan

We fell in love with this place because of its feeling of seclusion yet a great view of the river. The fishing has no rivals. The locals have made us feel at home and many have already become great friends.

What makes this bungalow unique

One thing we didnt realize is how many top ranked golf courses and antique shops there are in the area.

This property is clean and cozy on a beautiful and peaceful spot by the river.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights but wanted to stay for 2 weeks! The house is great and has everything you need but we didn't spend any time indoors honestly. We sat by the fire pit in the backyard and cooked all our meals on the gas grill on the back deck. The neighbors are closer than I expected but it wasn't a bother. I wanted remote and private so I could escape from the real world...even just for 36 hours...and that's what we got (regardless of nearby neighbors)! It's true, access to the river from the yard isn't a good idea but it's easy to get to the river a few minutes away. We can't wait to come back and hope to stay for longer next time!

The owners did a great job providing a home away from home and I can't thank them enough for sharing it with people like us. A real gem.

Cabin with all the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed four days at Devils Hole end of June and it was a great find. It started with Kyle's excellent customer service and hospitality making us feel very comfortable about our trip details and plans. The rustic cabin is a one of kind, it really has some character that you quickly fall in love with. Everything that you need is provided in this cabin, very easy for both grandparents and even my teenager to enjoy our stay. Awesome fire pit over looking the river and for some reason not many mosquitoes, what a plus! Cabin lacks great access to the river, but plenty of access just down the road within minutes of cabin. Muskegon river is beautiful and full of trout. We would go back to Devils Hole lodge.

2 night stay

  • 5 of 5

Was just as described, the only thing that you need to take is clothes and food. Didn't cook but lots of spices if we chose to and coffee and filters. Probably the most equipped place that we've stayed thru vrbo, and we've stayed at quite a few.

Great little cabin for our fishing trip

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to find a place that was conveniently located near the Muskegon River for a Steel Head fishing trip and ran across this gem in my search. Cabin is located just about in the middle between Newaygo and Croton dam. Four good spots for wadding just about 15 minutes or less away from this cabin.

Outside a little rough, but the inside was the best. Comfortable furniture to relax on and everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. I have stayed at several cabins with HomeAway/VRBO that say all included, but always end up running into town for something, but not this time, the Harris's have it covered. All we needed to bring was cloths and our fishing gear. Lots of fishing memorabilia which was entertaining to look through, my favorite was the hand drawn map of the Muskegon River, very nice touch.

Inside was very clean and organized. Mini fridge in the house which was capable of holding three days of food and drink for the three of us. Water pressure to kitchen sink was a little low making it a little difficult to clean dishes, but the shower was spot on after a long cold day of fishing.

Outside fire pit was great to relax at while dinner was cooking on the grill. Plenty of wood for a nominal price. Grill was clean and ready to go upon arrival. The grill does get a little hot with flare-ups so be sure to keep an eye on your food.

The owner Kyle is great, great communication and very good to deal with. He checked in with us several times through our stay to make sure we had what we needed for our stay. Our trip was planned for my son as he served the military and I wanted a special trip for us when he returned home, Kyle gave my son a special gift upon our arrival which was unexpected and totally appreciated by my son.

My boys and I did not want to leave. We are already looking to book again for the fall.
