Drive right to trail on your sled from the Cabin only about 200 ft to trail right out the driveway turning left or right! We are in the snow belt however we can not guarantee snow for your trip however when no one else has snow WE DO!! The trails are groomed 24 hours and are great most of the season which can run through April!! 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. For winter months snow plow service arrives automatically after 5 inches of snow. 4 wheel drive/ AWD is suggested for winter months. Prices are slightly higher in winter months due to the price of snowplowing to maintain long driveway due to EXCELLENT snow conditions.

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

A great getaway!!! Beautiful scenery throughout! Very clean cabin that has everything you need.
Just doing the simplest things were fun, bonfires, playing cards near the wood burning stove , walking on the beautiful property with the dog. Loved our getaway!!!😊
The cabin was warm and cozy after starting up the pellet stove. The wood burner added warmth, but not needed. Easy to find our way to snowmobile trails. Gas station and bar only 1 mile away! Bedrooms were comfy. Bathroom included washer and dryer. Plan to return in the future! We came in a big truck pulling a 32 foot snowmobile trailer; call ahead if you are doing the same so that they can clear snow before you arrive. Snow removal guy was there within a half hour after we called. Thanks for a great place to stay!
Tammy and guests so glad u enjoyed your stay with us!! We are one of the few towns with snow right now so I'm glad that worked out for u!! Come back anytime see u soon!!
Small clean cabin. Very private in woods.
Love this small cabin in the woods next to snowmobiling trails. What a blast.
Full value. Total peace, quiet and serenity. Beauty and nature and off the grid.renity.
Three adults from high stress lives spent 3 days in peace, quiet, enjoying the beauty of nature. The cabin offered everything we could possibly need. Clean efficient and fun without commercial interruptions except for a wine run.
Leaving relaxed and ready to face reality. Supreme place to find yourself. Hugs jg
So glad u enjoyed yourselves we love our cabin as well and cant wait to return!! Come again all the seasons are awesome!!
Perfect quiet getaway
This cabin is the perfect spot to unwind for a weekend; not too far from things to do if you're so inclined, but also a great place to just curl up, or go for some long wanders through the woods. The cabin has everything you could need; just bring your own food, and relax.
I hope we will be able to make another trip up to stay soon!
Lindsey and guest, so glad u enjoyed our cabin u were wonderful guests come back anytime!! Thank u
Very relaxing getaway!
My husband, dog, and I enjoyed our 3 night stay. The cabin really does have everything you need for your stay. We enjoyed exploring the area. It is very quiet and private! Angela was very friendly and gave easy directions and suggestions! I would definitely make sure you have 4 wheel drive. The dirt road gets very muddy in the rain. We witnessed a delievery truck get stuck on the hill and tried to pull him out but had no luck!
We want to come check it out during every season now!
So glad u enjoyed your stay!! It's usually muddy on the way in only in the Spring not the Fall!! Been unusually raining this fall ! Still lovely area though! Colors of leaves are fantastic!
This is a rustic cedar cabin however has all running water and indoor plumbing as needed includes washer/dryer.
