A Very Picturesque, Multi-Enjoyable 80-Acre Semi-Forested Farm Located in the Middle of Amish Country, Northwest of Mio, Michigan (Huron National Forest / AuSable State Forest)
The Farm is literally just minutes from AuSable River fishing, swimming, picnicking; canoeing/kayaking/tubing and launch sites. In addition, the Huron National Forest and AuSable State Forest offer hundreds of miles of trails for Hiking, Horseback Riding, ORV, Motorcycle and Groomed Snowmobile trails. By the way, ORV's are allowed on all Oscoda County Roads... Hey Golfers; ever heard of Garland? Just 13 miles away! Not a bad drive to enjoy a few great ones...
Our Farmhouse: Our quaint and cozy farmhouse, with a wrap-around valley view country porch, sleeps 4 to 6 and has been fully renovated (inside and out/top to bottom); especially the refurbishment of the original farm-grown and on-site milled hardwood flooring throughout, including the two upstairs bedrooms. The farmhouse features air-conditioning units on both floors; propane heat; free wifi: HD TV; Satellite DIRECTV; and Blu-ray Disc/DVD Player. Carbon dioxide, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and emergency lighting also provided. For your arrival security, a pre-assigned coded entry pad (no keys) awaits your private code input. For your convenience, the entry pad allows you to enter your own private entry code for the duration of your stay.
The Living Room consists of a full size La-Z-Boy Sleeper couch that pulls out to comfortably sleep two. An HD TV with DIRECTV and Blu-ray DVD/Disc player rounds out this entertainment center.
Kitchen and Dining Room: The Fully-Equipped Tiled Kitchen, with two tiled entries, is all stainless steel with two electric stove tops, each with overhead venting; oven; micro-wave and oven combination; dishwasher; ice making side-by-side refrigerator/freezer; 12-cup automatic drip coffee maker; electric can opener; blender; mixer; safety toaster; dish towels and wash cloths; and Amish made Hickory cabinets. A gas grill, located just off the end of the lower deck, is also available for your outdoor grilling.
The Dining Room, located between the kitchen and living room, is very handy for preparing and serving snacks or meals from the peninsula stovetop kitchen counter. An antique dining room table, with an overhead stained glass chandelier, can seat six and can be extended to comfortably seat more (or, if nothing else, for the convenient placement of food). It is a warming experience having dinner, and through the dining room windows, watching big snowflakes floating down.
Our Property: The 80 acres consist of rolling/hilly meadows overlooking an awesome panoramic view of miles of the AuSable River Valley Forest; and a 3 acre, spring(s)-fed, stocked pond (beach deep up to 36 feet) featuring a 'right-on-the-shoreline' finished fishing cabin that offers electricity, propane heat, ceiling fan, covered porch and raised fire pit.
The property is as natural as natural can get. . . Groomed trails lead down from the meadows, through hardwood and evergreen forests (consisting of beautiful wooded valleys with four flowing streams) to and through beautiful cedar swamps.
The Pond-Side Finished Fishing Cabin makes for an excellent hangout for tubing, catch and release fishing, etc.

What a lovely, peaceful getaway! Farmhouse and property were beautiful and welcoming
Comfortable with everything we needed, a great place to stay while we enjoyed the area attractions of kayaking, hiking, and fishing.
Thank you for such a nice review. I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. I'm glad you were able to enjoy your time at the farm and explore the area. Hope to welcome you back for a future getaway!
My New Happy Place
Best vacation ever! The perfect end to summer...We stayed over the Labor Day holiday.
The house and property are both beautiful. From the homemade brownies and welcome basket, to the fall pumpkins awaiting our arrival, I couldn't have asked for more. If I could give this more stars I would. :)
The house itself was perfect. It was cozy and warm, with blankets and pillows and everything you could imagine. Every time we thought "hey, I wonder if they have..." we'd turn around and it was there! From outside games like horseshoes and cornhole, to indoor board games, this property had it all. My son even has a newfound love for tetherball!
The Kitchen...perfect. It was fully stocked with everything we could have wanted or needed. Just a quick run to the grocery store in town and we were set. Family breakfasts and dinners were a breeze, and cookouts on the grill went perfectly. Every morning we had coffee on the porch while we watched the birds at the feeders. Two big woodpeckers and beautiful hummingbirds (my favorite) were only a couple feet away from us. If we sat still, chipmunks would literally run around our feet. Amazing. S'mores around the campfire at night while playing guitar - yup...we did that too!!
We fished at the pond and threw fish food so we could watch them jump. The kids loved it. In the very early morning (before the rest of the family woke) the deer could be seen on the very edge of the property. It was truly peaceful.
Size-wise, the house is a good fit for a family of 4 or 5. I would happily come back with friends or family with a tent in the yard. :) The property itself is SO beautiful and the kitchen is perfect for larger gatherings. Plenty of room to cook a big meal. I would LOVE to share this place with family and friends and I can't wait to return. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
This was our third trip to the Farmhouse for our annual Father/Son trip. We love this place, so we were weary of the change in ownership. To our delight, we found it to be all we expected and then-some! Not that it was needed, but there were many small improvements/additions.
Upon arrival, the first thing that jumped out at us was the cornfields. In the past, “farmhouse,” was just the name. Now, it actually IS a farm! Overall, it adds a new variable to the already diverse landscape. Inside the house was very clean and had everything we needed.
Our first couple days it rained quite a bit, but we were still able to ride around the property during the breaks. We also spent time fishing when it was raining. We were able to fish from under the cover of the fishing hut….awesome! During the nice weather, we played Baggo, hiked, fished and rode the area trail-system on our dirt-bikes.
It was another great year. Can’t wait for 2018!!!
Thank you for taking time to give us such an awesome review. We are happy we were able to exceed your expectations! We will continue to make all of the "extras" extra special. Can't wait for your next visit!
Beautiful house and property, awesome hosts
My husband and I and a couple friends stayed at this house for the weekend. The house and property are beautifully decorated and maintained. Michelle and her family were excellent hosts. There were a ton of amenities, as well as a welcome basket and fresh baked brownies! Michelle always responded promptly to inquiries and provided all information in a timely manner. House was very clean.
Close to Au sable river for boating and tubing.
We will definitely com again!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a nice review. We are very happy to share our property with great guests like you! We take a lot of pride in trying to make this a relaxing, comfortable getaway. Your kindness is truly appreciated. We can't wait to welcome you back!
Continued Blessings to you and yours,
The Hoffman Family
Great time was had by all!
Our family loves spending time together in this place. Just walking in feels like coming home again. Along with the ATV activities, we were able to enjoy the property pond this visit, and my non fishermen peeps, became fans. Was nice walking the property trails every morning, enjoying the wild flowers, wild life, and the quiet. A great place to unwind! We were also able to enjoy other local outdoor activities, as the access to the river is not too far away. Also the farmers market, flea market, and Amish bakery are very close by. Michelle was a very gracious host.
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such a great review! We love hosting awesome families like yours. The best feeling knowing all the memories you create with your kids. We were extra blessed by getting to meet you this time too! We truly appreciate your business and look forward to many more visits to the farm!
Great location and awesome view of God's amazing creation! Thank you to Ryan and Michelle for answering all our questions on the area. It was a blessing to our family to stay there. Thank you.
Mark thank you for taking the time to give us a wonderful review. It is terrific for us to be able to share our family blessing with other families who are also in awe of God's grace. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back someday. Check out our Facebook page for Au Sable Valley View Farm to see updates and improvements we are making. Thank you again for your stay!
