We always love the deer and turkey that are on the property. Our grandkids love all of the nature walks and fun that we have at the cabin.

Perfect for our Guys Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a guys weekend and had a great time. Our only requirements were something within a reasonable distance of Traverse City and Sleeping Bear, affordable, and something isolated in the woods, and this cottage checked all those boxes. The place was clean and well maintained and had everything we needed; all the kitchen stuff, bath towels, even central air. There is double bed and bunk bed in one room on the main floor and a king bed and trundle bed in the loft so sleeping arrangements aren't private but no big deal for a guys weekend. It's on 75 wooded acres but also has some open spaces near the cottage and driveways which was great because we brought a portable disc golf basket and could play all over. The fire pit was perfect; they already had wood we could use and the fire pit was huge. Kim, the host, was always quick to respond to my questions and very helpful. The place is also close to several grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc. We went about 30 min east to Grayling to rent kayaks but passed another place that was probably half that far. I'd recommend this cottage for others doing an outing with friends or family and will keep it in mind the next time I need to stay in the northern lower.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We met some friends for a getaway. The Kalkaska location got us out of the bustle of Traverse City but close enough to get to all the excitement of the city. The cabin was exactly as advertised, quiet, and we produced some of the best s'mores ever created by a campfire. An excellent view of sunsets and the stars were brilliant. All of the switches were well labeled and functional. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed some good night's sleep!

I would 100% recommend staying here! The cabin exceeded my expectations, and the location is great. Only about 40 minutes from traverse city! It was more than enough room for 6 people, even though it is small. Very pleased with my experience here.
