  • Wonderfully Relax Getaway!


    We very much enjoyed the peaceful backyard from the fire pit area overlooking the river. It was so peaceful to sit and listen to the river! The home was very clean and well stocked! We highly recommend this vacation getaway and plan to return next year!

    Very nice cabin on the river with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The welcome basket full of goodies was a nice extra touch. Close to Grayling and Gaylord for shopping and elk viewing. We had a wonderful time and would stay here again!

    Myself, 3 girlfriends, and a 6m.o. baby spent 2 nights here. It was cozy and the sound of the river was absolutely lovely. We grilled out the 1st night. The next day we hiked at Hartwick Pines, ate dinner at Paddle Hard Brewing, had a bonfire next to the river, and played card games. It was such a cute little cabin, and we had fun counting all the fish in the house!
