About Richard

I have been an active outdoors person all my life. I enjoy gardening, hikes, animal watching and many more outdoor activities.

Richard purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard chose Northern Michigan

This property is one of the best in the area with many outdoor activities. Close to Traverse City and many tourist hot spots it can't be beat!

What makes this house unique

I purchased this vacant property in 2005 and camped on it for 2 years on and off to get a feel for the land before I built on it. I believe the location of the home and its surrounding land makes it a great vacation spot for all.

The Perfect Place For Our Honeymoon...

  • 5 of 5

The house is fully stocked with everything we needed and more. It truly felt like our home away from home. The house made us excited to come back to every night and even made us want to stay in some days. Set back in the woods with an amazing few of the Boardman River right out front. Richard, the owner, is incredibly helpful and accommodating which made it that much more enjoyable.

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and we had talked about what we wanted in our own house one day. It blew us away to see that all the ideas we had in the past come to life in this place. I highly recommend this place to anyone from a couple on an up-north getaway, to a family on a vacation, or a weekend with friends.

Thank you Richard for helping make a memory that will last a lifetime!

Nice property

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home for a 3 couples weekend. Nice location overlooking the Boardman River. Close enough to Traverse City to enjoy the restaurants and wineries. 3 large bedrooms. Main area is open concept, which is great for socializing. Nice finishes, TV & WiFi. Very clean and well maintained with a well stocked kitchen. Great owner who lives nearby. You can't go wrong renting this property.

Great Fall family retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 7 year old daughter and myself stayed here for the upper Michigan fall color change and had a fantastic time. It was a last minute booking (literally) because of another VRBO place had accidentally double booked. We had our kayaks, hiking boots, fishing and hunting gear with us. The owner was great, informative and terrific to work with. He drove us up the Boardman river and dropped us and our kayaks off, and we kayaked directly back to the rental! With the large amount of State land about 200 yards from the back door, we utilized the great hiking available to us. I was able to keep my waders at the front door and walk to the river whenever I wanted for trout fishing. In addition, I had the opportunity to hunt for grouse/woodcock in the beautiful fall foilage without having to drive anywhere. My wife loved the short drive to Traverse City for the restaurants and shopping and the relaxing atmosphere at the rental. My daughter enjoyed the bunk bed, learning to play ping pong and the hot tub :-) We will be staying here again.

A perfect retreat......

  • 5 of 5

After you meet Richard Becker you will understand why this home away from home is so special. He not only has a great love of this beautiful property on the river, but also a remarkable understanding of the aesthetics that so enhance the natural beauty. The house is very well cared for, and beyond stocked with everything you could possibly need.......(including, ladies: a hairdryer, a curling iron and, a straight iron). In a short time, you will not want to leave. I am on here today because we wanted to go back, just for a weekend to try out his other "cabin" (which is also amazing)..... but, "booked up". We will be back sometime next summer. When you are married to a "fishhead", it doesn't get any better than Richard's Riverbend.

Located on the beautiful Boardman River just min. away from historic downtown Traverse City. Many wonderful restaurants, wineries, golf courses, and shops just to name a few of the many things available to do and see in the area. Great boating and fishing, hiking and kayaking. We have the Cherry Festival in July, Horse show in July, Movie Festival after that and many, many events thru-out the spring, summer, and fall. And don't forget about the fall colors. There is no better place to see them than on the River! There is plenty of wildlife in the area, lots to do and see right in this beautiful home's backyard! Enjoy a bonfire by the river and watch the night sky for northern lights and satelites!
