  • Cute small cabin


    It was small, but clean. Not too far from Petoskey and beautiful parks with hiking. Shower was very small, but has the handheld showerhead on a hose, which makes it easier to rinse off.

  • Wonderful Place


    This was a wonderful place to stay for the weekend! It was a bit bigger than it looked in the pictures, which was great. The shower was a little bit small, but very usable. The only thing missing qould be a sponge or dish cloth to wash the dishes with. Everything else was wonderful!

  • Cute little getaway


    Cute little cabin. Represented acutely in listing. Owner/manager was available if needed and checked in to make sure my stay was going well and if I needed anything.

    Included everything needed for a relaxing getaway. I would definitely recommend.
