About Dennis Giffels 231-233-6529

The little town Wellston is actually my hometown. I graduated from Brethren High School, and grew up fishing every fishing hole, and bicycling all over Wellston, Irons and Brethren, skiing and snowmobiling (of course). After a couple of decades in environmental drilling, I moved on to get my contractor's license and real estate license, and have spent the last 5 years learning more about creating an amazing vacation rental than I ever thought I would know. I pride myself on offering a vacation home where guests are even more impressed when they arrive than when they see the listing online. I also know how important it is for families to have a space to share and be comfortable in. When I find myself saying, 'you know, it would be great to have...', I start working on making it happen for my customers.

Why Dennis Giffels 231-233-6529 chose Northern Michigan

Wellston is such a hidden treasure. And this home is right in the middle of all of it. There's an incredible playground across the street. The beautiful beach at Crystal Lake is 3 blocks away. Fishing within walking distance. And we've all watched the Dublin store transform into the local phenomenon it is, with it's famous Dublin Jerky. Out on the main drag, there is the White Tail Party Store, M-55 Market (great steaks!!!), The Cozy Kitchen, Fisherman's Headquarters. , the Dublin General store which is just a few miles away has great jerky & fudge. Keep on going to Irons, and you'll run into Jackie's, the Oak Grove Tavern, and the Iron's Cafe.

What makes this house unique

The 6 person Hot Tub & Gazebo has been completed and is ready for your enjoyment!! Plus LCD TV's in every bedroom. We also have installed 2 beautiful electric fireplaces, one in the living area & one in a bedroom. We already have A/C, WiFi, big screen plasma TV in the living room and a fabulous kitchen set-up. Little extras matter - supplies well stocked.. That's why I try to make sure you have starters of all the extras many other places don't provide - hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, paper products, trash bags, plenty of outdoor seating. Suggestions for extra amenities welcome!

Awesome time and great experience.

  • 5 of 5

Went with a couple of families for the Fourth of July weekend, the house had everything we needed. The house is in great condition and the lake is just a few blocks away. We had a great time and would definitely stay there again.

Nice home that lives up to its advertizing 100%.

  • 5 of 5

Nice home that lives up to its advertizing 100%. My family and I (10 of us) enjoyed a wonderful vacation, super facilities, good beds, fabulous hot tub, and great skiing just a few miles up the road at Caberfae. Owner is a pleasant, helpful, no-hassle guy. This is our second year at the house for a week at a time, and we plan to return next year.

Relaxing and fun filled!

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family and this was a special treat to have everyone stay under the same roof! The owner is fantastic and goes out of his way to make sure you have a pleasant stay. The place is spotless and has everything you would need! I suppose my only dislike was the local ordinance for it to be quiet after ten. My kids aren't typically loud but having lots of teenagers, they tend to get silly in the later hours and that would have been fun to be able to do that around the campfire. But we had our fun inside instead. We would all love to go back!! Thank you so much!!!

Just what you need!

  • 5 of 5

Property was just as advertised....if not better! Proximity to Caberfae and Crystal Mountain was great. The amenities included were homey. M-55 Market, right up the road has everything you need for groceries! You won't be disappointed!

Great Girls Get Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome Girls Getaway. The house was beautiful, very clean, and well stocked with kitchen spices and equipment. The linens were plentiful, although we did bring our own beach blankets for use in the wonderful hot tub. The only little thing that we might recommend is some felt pieces on the chair legs bottoms in the dining room as the chairs are noisy and hard to move, but very spacious for great meal times. The walk in shower was one of my favorite features. The front room was very comfortable with more than enough seating that we could sprawl out, whether it was morning devotions or movies and stand up comedians on DVD in the evening. We did some local wine tasting and "Hopps and Props" in Manistee. Even though the weather was not the greatest, the house and the area entertainment was not lacking at all. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a vacation spot in any season!
