Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property in a fantastic setting. I visited the cabin in June '16, along with my wife and three kids - the smallest being three months old. Naturally, traveling with small kids requires a fair amount of creature comfort and this cozy cabin was perfect. In fact, my kids has such a great time that they asked if we could come back next summer after being at the cabin for about 4 hours.

The kitchen was super clean was comes complete with everything needed to cook gourmet meals - including a dishwasher! There is a gas BBQ for grilling, a screened in porch for relaxing, and a streamside fire pit for late evening marshmallow roasting. For the fishermen, there are plenty of brook trout in the backyard, but you'll find greater numbers of fish downstream. We loved the screened in porch and found it perfect for tying on our favorite flies. My son caught his first brookie on the dock and we "donated" the fly to the mantle, alongside a few others that were already there...

Exceeded expectations and I hope we have an opportunity to stay again.

Beautiful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, clean property right on the Manistee. Everything needed for your stay is provided - except food, of course! I would recommend this property to anyone looking for canoeing, fishing, tubing or just a nice, peaceful escape from the everyday life. Thank you again for letting us celebrate our 11th annual girls weekend there.

Another terrific year!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent another great week at our home away from home! Exploring the surrounding wilderness during the day and coming home to warm, cozy fires in the fieldstone fireplace each evening really set the tone. Wonderful dinners were made in the complete kitchen and we dined surrounded by the tongue and groove pine. A libation to end the day in front of the fire before turning in to comfortable beds made each day spent there perfect! We're already looking forward to next year!

girls getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience this cottage was. It was very clean and very well furnished with everything that one would need. The decorations were so cozy and warm feeling. The inside of the cottage was fabulous, the outside of the cottage was perfect too. We enjoyed the firepit, and the dock by the river. You even had outside chairs for us to enjoy with. We have never rented a cabin for our girls getaway before but now we will definetley rebook for next summer. Loved it!!
