This cabin is perfect! Very relaxing, peaceful and romantic. Everything we needed was there

  • 5 of 5

Paul is very friendly and kind. He was in touch during our stay to give suggestions on places to go and things to do. Lake Michigan is a short drive and absolutely beautiful view and walk. Good hart has some cute shops and delicious food! It's about a 5 minute drive so that's where I went for my morning coffee and treats for the day :) we enjoyed walking the property with our dogs, who enjoyed their stay very much as well. Overall, the perfect place to get a way from it all. Highly recommended.

Beautiful little cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Paul thought of everything. This little beauty is nestled in the woods but has all the amenities you could need. The little fireplace kept us warm on the chilly nights and I appreciated the fact that it is pet friendly!!!

Terrific Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The location to Northern Michigan was terrific as you are very close to Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Mackinac! The cabin is tastefully decorated, private, well equipped and clean. The stars outside on clear nights are incredible! Hope to be back!

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit and it was another fantastic stay. The cabin and property are beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed the beaches at St Ignatius church and Wilderness State Park. BBQ'ed for dinner. Visited Harbor Springs and the Oden State Fish Hatchery, which was a cool experience for our toddler. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. Thanks for everything!

This is a new point I feel must be mentioned I Paul Matthews have received in the past 3 years of rental on VBRO 3 complaints from guests about the noise from the nearby outdoor club. It is a World Class outdoor skeet and clay pigeon range that the public , including our guests can enjoy and pertisapate inn for a fee . Beautiful rural setting surrounded by conservancy and state land. Hiking and horse back riding trails galore! Lots of wild life and bird watching opportunities. Several nice beaches within 2.5-15 miles. Mackinaw Island 40 minutes and a ferry ride away.
