Why Anna Waldron chose Northern Michigan

It's not why this property but why not.This updated cabin will charm you vacation in many ways. Lets start with the beautiful location and and the access it has to all your outdoor needs and pleasures,plus the beautiful river that nestles 100 from the front door.This newly decorated cabin will give you that out of town feel but also provide you with some at home basics like internet access and a wall mounted big screen TV to calm the little ones down while the outside grill is preparing the evening meal.

What makes this cabin unique

Great location that has year round activities. Quaint updated inside decor with new furnishings. It also has a key-less entry so you don't have to worry about lost keys while canoeing.The newly added loft is a great escape for older kids, teenagers and the young at heart .City conveniences are just right around the corner for those things we seem to always forget to pack.

A short walk from the cabin you will find Big Bear Advantages to rent all your river rafting supplies (Tubes,Kayaks, rafts), McDonald's or Burger King, Kens grocery store, a smoke house BBQ/ Bar restaurant with karaoke, Wilson's Rivers Edge Restaurant, Subway and a great fish smokehouse. You have everything you need just steps from your cabin door, but when your at the cabin it has the perfect relaxing setting.

super cute sturgeon river cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great place that is close to many different activities! Whether it is going to Mackinac to buy fudge and enjoy time on the Island. or going to Petoskey to jump off the pier and look for Petoskey stones, this is a great place to stay! You can also walk to Burt lake State park to spend time on the beautiful beach or go tubing down the "cool" Sturgeon river. Harbor Springs is a great place to have lunch. We also loved sitting on the back deck watching all the people float by. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

Owner's Response: Glad you loved the cabin. If you want to venture a little further next time hit the wine tour trail in TraverCity it makes a great day trip. Coffee lovers can also walk to North Star Nursery for a great cup of coffee now serving Star Bucks.

Cabin on the river in the middle of everything. We stayed August 2017

  • 4 of 5

It was nice to have the deck overlooking the river.The cabin is in the middle of everything! We went to Sault St Marie and toured the locks ,Gaylord in search of Elk, drove the of tunnel trees stopped for coffee and had a wonderful Polish lunch at Legs inn went to Mackinac island wonderful! The lumberjack show is a don't miss the beach is not far from the cabin it is small but very nice. The cabin was comfy and had most everything we needed one thing missing was a lighter so we had to go get one before we could have a fire. I wish the beds were more to comfy maybe I am just used to my own bed?

Wonderful cottage on the river!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for our family! Extremely clean, adorably decorated, and close to everything. Located right on the river, where we spent peaceful evenings by the bonfire. Owner was available and prompt with any questions that we had. Loft was ideal for our kids. Will definitely visit again!
