Built in the 1940's by famed fly fishing guide Jim Wakeley, our 'River Cabin' is located at the historic Wakeley Bridge. 'Uncle Jim' purchased the property during World War II and began developing the property one building at a time. As a second generation fly fishing guide, my family and I are working to keep the memory of Jim Wakeley alive and share our love of the river. The cabin is nestled along the world famous 'Holy Waters', a 'fly's only', 'catch and release' section on the AuSable. The cabin is just a short drive to the North and South Branches of the river.
Canoe and kayak rentals are available on site for rental; along with the opportunity to hire Capt. Dave to take you on a memorable fly fishing float on the beautiful AuSable.
For the golf enthusiast we are only a short drive away from both, Forest Dunes Golf Club and Garland Golf Resort. For the hikers, bikers and bird watchers the cabin is three miles from Wakeley Lake, a beautiful part of the Huron-Mainistee National Forest area with miles of trails with loon and eagle sightings on a regular basis.
The quiet and cozy cabin offers two bedrooms with a full size bed in each, full kitchen with living area including a couch, for additional sleeping. Dishes and linens are supplied along with a charcoal grill. There is a riverside fire pit for enjoying the summer evenings.
Whether you are fly-fishing, canoeing or simply relaxing our cabin provides it all.
Second generation fly fishing guide taught by the famed Jim Wakeley. My wife and I bought the property in 1978 raised our three children here and continue to enjoy having our four grandchildren enjoy it also.
Colleen Wyss purchased this cabin in 1978
Our Aunt wanted the property to stay in the family so after the sudden death of our Uncle Jim we bought it from her to continue the traditions that they started.
We love the River and cannot imagine ever not being here. The view of the River is spectacular and fishing is
great. So nice to be able to walk out and be right at the riverfront.
What a great cabin !! Had s fantastic time ! Beautiful river . Colleen and Dave were great !! Definitely want to go back
The cabin is wonderfully furnished, super clean and very comfortable in every way. You can not get closer to the river and they even rent kayaks and canoes right on the property. For trout anglers looking for a place to rest their fly fishing and wading tired bodies you can not beat this cabin.
With all that said a couple amenities would be nice to have.
1.) Outside Wader Hangers
2.) A hose to clean waders and boots
3.) A little larger water heater
We stayed a few days this past week and thoroughly enjoyed the cabin, grounds, proximity to the river, and general serenity of the entire atmosphere. The cabin is very efficient and very clean. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
