The Manistee National Forest offers thousands of acres of land for hiking, snowmobiling, hunting, dirt biking and ATV trails. It is the only national forest with an ATV trail system in western Lower Michigan, and connects with an additional 180 miles of 'off road vehicle' trails east of Highway 37. Over thirty lakes and three rivers in the area offer salmon, steelhead, rainbow and brown trout fishing.

It features sand dunes and virgin forests, miles of sandy beach, 14 miles of hiking and biking trails and three campgrounds. Fishing charters are also available in Ludington, as well as canoe and kayak rentals, watercraft and boat rentals - even dune buggy rides.

Walhalla is a great place to escape city life and 'get away from it all.'

Great amenities in the home and we loved the nearby lake.

  • 5 of 5

Greg was wonderful at communicating everything about the home, amenities and lake access. The property had everything we were looking for to entertain our large family ranging in ages 2-80. We would love to come again!

Met all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of available activities, or just do nothing. The owner was very accessible and responsive. The cabin was clean, quiet, and well-furnished. You really don't have to bring much, except food, drink, and personal items. We prepared several lavish meals with the the cookware and appliances provided. Good times.

Overall experience was awesome

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice getaway cottage located between Baldwin, MI and Ludington, MI with lake accessibility to Long Lake in Branch , MI. You can easily access Lake Michigan and beaches or whatever your pleasure is. I had several questions for the owner and he was happy to answer them in a very short period of time. I would/will rent this cottage again. Thanks Greg

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time. It was very comfort and pretty. The river is very close we could see salmon fishing and rode a bike in ludington state park. Of course we enjoyed seeing the Michigan lake. The house was very clear and they had many toys and board games. My kids loved there too.

We had a lovely stay at this place! It is well equipped and the space was great. It is super convenient to area attractions - an easy trip to Ludington and to nearby hiking - and the kids loved the beach. Definitely recommend!
