About Mike & Julie Parker 7351 Penny Ln, St Helen Mi. 48656

We are life time Michiganders and thoroughly enjoy the 'up north' experience. We enjoy riding our ATVs and Jeep and have taken so many trips to this area because there is just so much we love to do! We hope you will come and stay and make wonderful memories of your own.

Mike & Julie Parker 7351 Penny Ln, St Helen Mi. 48656 purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mike & Julie Parker 7351 Penny Ln, St Helen Mi. 48656 chose Saint Helen

We have traveled to the West Branch/ Houghton Lake/ St. Helen area for years to drive our jeep and quads and to play golf. After numerous trips, we realized this area was the perfect 'up north' destination! We feel lucky to have found such a beautiful log home in such a great location.

What makes this cabin unique

After seeing the character of the log interior, along with the beautiful river rock fireplace, we were enchanted. After relaxing out on the deck and taking in the surrounding beauty, we were sold! This property has the charm of a log home with all the modern amenities that make for an exceptional experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We relaxed, enjoyed sunsets, explored nearby areas, played board games, and enjoyed cabin time.

Our family enjoyed this beautiful cabin/home. We were able to spend quality time together while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful setting.
