About the property

Cozy Cabin for an 'Up North' Adventure - Comfortably Sleeps 6 - AC and Wifi!

Vacation means relaxation, tranquility and time to escape. It's exactly what you'll find at the Hunger & Ransom cabin. You'll feel right at home here and before your trip is over, you'll be counting the days until you can come back.

SPECIAL! Book 7+ nights during the summer or 5+ nights during all other times and we'll waive the cleaning fee. :)

7+ night stays automatically earn a 10% discount!

Top to bottom renovated cabin in the Huron National Forest with Air Conditioning and WiFi! Located directly on the national forest trailhead for miles of ATV riding, Biking, and Snowmobiling; pull out of the driveway and go (all the way to Lake Huron if you're up for it!). Just a couple miles away from 60+ lakes and the AuSable river. Go tubing, kayaking, or canoeing. Check out the great trails and scenic overlooks all along the river.

* * Pets are more than welcome here! * *

Got pets? You've come to the right listing. We have a Doberman and Boxer so we know what it's like trying to find a sitter, let alone being apart. It's not a vacation without them! Well-behaved dogs and cats, big to small are welcome. Please, give us a call before booking with pets. We might be able to give you a discount off the $25 pet fee depending on the length of your stay.


We've got a completely fenced yard for your pets and some extra privacy along either side of the property. The split log pickets are a perfect mix of up-north feel and added seclusion!

* * Everything you'll need is included * *

Fully furnished with linens and towels. No need to waste space in your luggage trying to pack sheets and pillows; it's crowded enough on the ride up!

We've also got all of the pots, pans, silverware, and general dinnerware you could possibly need. There's a microwave, coffee maker, and toaster in addition to the refrigerator and stove.

For the nights you decide to spend indoors, we provide free access to high speed (60 MB/s) WiFi, Netflix, Amazon Prime Movies/Shows, Premium Channel Networks, and Cable TV.

Keep the kids occupied with children's movies or spend a rainy night in catching up on your favorite shows.

Bringing some work/studying with you on vacation? The WiFi is more than capable of handling all of your internet needs.

* * Comfortable accommodation for up to 8 people * *

There's a bunk room with 4 beds great for the kids or families. The second upstairs bedroom has a full-size bed with a desk and chair for the work & play vacationers. The first floor bedroom has a queen-size bed.

Each bedroom has a dresser and closet with plenty of storage for everyone.

* * Get away on a day trip * *

Aside from all the forest has to offer, the cabin's not far from tons more. Wicker Hills golf course is only 5 minutes away (professional 18 hole course). Rose City, just 15 min away has two awesome wineries with free wine tasting. In under an hour you could be laying on a Lake Huron beach or over in West Branch doing some shopping at the outlet mall.

* * Perfect for Outdoor Adventures * *

The cabin is located directly on Butler/Jose Lake Trail that runs through the Huron National Forest. Take off out of the driveway and you're on your way down miles of ATV trail. Come winter time, snowmobilers will be hard-pressed to find a better rental.

Not into trail riding? We're located on a residential road where everyone passing by is extremely courteous.

* * How about some cabin charm? * *

We've got that too. Awesome knotty pine interior, real fieldstone fireplace, wood pane windows, original wood floors, and plenty of new touches that makes the Hunger & Ransom cabin so much more than a boring, new build rental.

Rain or shine, take in all the up-north greatness under our new, covered outdoor area. Enjoy a BBQ dinner and unwind by the fire pit. Spending time outside in beautiful Northern Michigan is why you're looking to get away as it is, right?

* * Newly Renovated * *

We have put a lot of effort into making this cabin exactly what you're looking for in a place to stay. Everything from a brand new bathroom, flooring throughout, ceilings, to the stain is updated. If there was something we could do to improve, we did it!

* * We do our best to make it Affordable * *

We know the pains of finding a cabin and what's most important when choosing the best one. That's why we allow pets, offer free high-speed internet (60 mb/s), and forgo those tacky cleaning fees*. When it comes time to leave, our philosophy is: 'leave it as you found it.'

*Book 7 nights and pay no cleaning fee during summer months (July - mid-September). All other dates, cleaning fee is waived with a minimum 5 night stay.

* * Get in touch. I'll call/text/email back right away * *

If you have any questions, please contact us. I do my best to respond to every inquiry as quickly as possible. If you're already in love with the Hunger & Ransom cabin, go ahead and book it now!

We hope you enjoy your stay and can't wait to have you back!

About Aaron

Hey there! I'm Aaron. I love exploring new places, trying new things and enjoying those special vacation moments with family and friends. But, when the day's over, I want to unwind somewhere that feels like home, without the routine chores of being home. This is exactly how I want you to feel when you stay at our cabin.

Very clean and cute property!

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the cabin and amenities. The only thing we would have liked to know was how close the neighbors were. With a large gathering on the property directly behind us, and neighbors on both sides, privacy while outside wasn't that great. We were expecting it to be a bit more secluded. That being said, we did enjoy our stay.

Nice, comfortable cabin-great experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful experience. The cabin had everything we needed and so much more. The beds were super comfortable! We enjoyed being close to the woods and trails for morel hunting. The lakes were absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed the small town area.

Perfect Low-key Dog-Friendly Spot

  • 5 of 5

We booked the cabin for my birthday weekend, specifically to give us a break from taking our 5 month old puppies outside on a leash every couple of hours. They loved the backyard and we were able to really relax!

The cabin is cozy and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The only downfalls were the extremely tiny bathroom, low water pressure, and noisy water pump.

We stayed for 3 full days which was the perfect amount of time to explore the small towns in the area without getting bored. The guest book and dollar bill game made us feel like we knew the past guests and were leaving our own legacy.

We went on an off road vehicle trail with our Jeep (trailhead for large vehicles is about a mile west on the same road as the cabin). The birch trees and fall colors were picturesque.

We also toured Rose Valley Winery, the Dusty Rose antique shop, and flea market. Everyone we met was friendly and we felt very welcome.

It was also great to be able to get some work done since we both run our own businesses and are never off the clock. The internet speeds/connectivity and access to Netflix were great.

I highly suggest bringing your own food to cook meals since there are only 2 small general stores and a few bars within 20 minutes or so. You'll have everything you need, including condiments and baking essentials.

Aaron was very responsive to all of my questions and was even willing to mail us back an item that we forgot to grab.

We would stay here again without hesitation, maybe in the winter or summer to try out snowmobiling and the lake!

We were a group of 3 here for a week to do some grouse hunting. Aaron was great to deal with quick to respond and to answer questions. The cabin has everything you need. Very high speed internet, tv service, comfortable chairs and beds along with a large dinning room table to eat at. The fenced in yard was a major plus for us being able to let the dogs run and play without worrying about them getting out. When we come back again we are definetly staying here again.

Cute Cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a cute cabin. Mom and I felt right at home as soon as we entered. We had plenty of room to spread out. It had beautiful decor and almost everything seemed to be refurbished into something wonderful and was very pleasing to the eye. The beds were very comfortable. The cabin had everything we needed and more. We were able to use the fire pit which was awesome! We even played the $ Game :). The best part was that I could bring my dog Jacob!! The owner was very easy to work with and answered all questions we had. I will be back for sure!!!!!
