The cabin is not just for snowmobilers its a great place to just relax and get away from it all with all the comforts of home. Summer months are excellent as well with a lovely setting and water just minutes away for swimming or boating. Excellent hiking in the summer months. Children and dogs can run around freely with no worry of cars or traffic. Home sits off the road in the woods with plenty of space for tents as well if needed for extra guests.

About Angela and George Whitinger
We are a married couple from the Lansing, Mi area. We would love for you to enjoy are lovely cabin in the woods. This is a peaceful retreat with several lakes in the area. We only want to rent to others that are respectful of our property. There is a fire pit for your enjoyment and there is room outside for tents for additional guests if you choose. There is plenty of room for children and pets to run around safely. This property sits about 200 feet of the main road so in the winter months you will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to enter the property. There is a local bar and tavern with a small store for essential items about 1 mile away or less. Great food and great for families also. This is a great place to unwind and relax. No cable or internet. However I do have service on my cell phone which is Verizon. Hope you would like to enjoy this peaceful retreat sometime soon, Thank you, Mrs Whitinger

Very cozy and private!
Lovely cabin in the woods. Very private. Saw deer and an owl in the area. Cabin is on a seasonal road which was rough at the end of winter. Driveway was also rough due to the recent freeze / thaw. Glad we were prepared w/ 4WD. Hosts were wonderful and quickly responded to all questions. Would stay here again.
Glad you enjoyed your stay!! Yes I agree with all of the quick thaws and then freezing again quickly the road to home and drive are a bit rough for end of season. Luckily the road will be graded soon as well as are drive when it dries up a bit. Hope to see you again soon, Angela and George
