Custom built this timber-frame in 2008 after many years of land surveying the woods and waters all across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and South Florida. This is a great location for recreation or quiet woods time.

Overall I would rate this home as average. The home has a sufficient kitchen, adequate living area, fairly good bathrooms and tolerable bedrooms. All the beds are double beds including the Master bedroom, and were not very comfortable. The house does not have air and was hot and humid even with all the windows open and fans running. The home was not as close to downtown Munising as we had anticipated. It is quite isolated and the mosquitos were horrendous even after we bathed in deep woods off. If you need WiFi connection this is not the house for you as the only place you could attempt to get a connection was at the kitchen table in a certain spot and it was very difficult to stay connected.
Our family of 4 rented La Casita Del Bosque for a 4-day UP getaway during July and it was wonderful. This beautifully designed, impeccably decorated, and ideally outfitted house took our breath away at first sight. I would, without hesitation, book this property again -- and for a longer period the next time. If you want to get away from it all and just RELAX, this is the place. The owner was a delight to work with. The only drawback was the lack of internet access, which was a deficit for us, since we like to plan our travel as we go and we use the internet a lot for that purpose. We solved the problem by making the short drive into Munising each day for the lunch at a little internet cafe downtown, to it wasn't a major drawback. Do yourself a favor; book Casita Del Bosque!
Have stayed at this property before and glad to see it on homeaway! Love the peaceful setting in the woods and the private lake to swim and fish! The area attractions in Munising and the Pictured Rocks NP are awesome!
