The Manistee National Forest offers thousands of acres of land for hiking, snowmobiling, hunting, dirt biking and ATV trails. It is the only national forest with an ATV trail system in western Lower Michigan, and connects with an additional 180 miles of 'off road vehicle' trails east of Highway 37. Over thirty lakes and three rivers in the area offer salmon, steelhead, rainbow and brown trout fishing.

Ludington State Park is located just a short drive from Walhalla and is called 'Queen of Michigan's Parks.' It features sand dunes and virgin forests, miles of sandy beach, 14 miles of hiking and biking trails and three campgrounds. Fishing charters are also available in Ludington, as well as canoe and kayak rentals, watercraft and boat rentals - even dune buggy rides.

Walhalla is a great place to escape city life and 'get away from it all.'

Overall experience was awesome

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice getaway cottage located between Baldwin, MI and Ludington, MI with lake accessibility to Long Lake in Branch , MI. You can easily access Lake Michigan and beaches or whatever your pleasure is. I had several questions for the owner and he was happy to answer them in a very short period of time. I would/will rent this cottage again. Thanks Greg

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time. It was very comfort and pretty. The river is very close we could see salmon fishing and rode a bike in ludington state park. Of course we enjoyed seeing the Michigan lake. The house was very clear and they had many toys and board games. My kids loved there too.

Excellent Vacation Property

We had a lovely stay at this place! It is well equipped and the space was great. It is super convenient to area attractions - an easy trip to Ludington and to nearby hiking - and the kids loved the beach. Definitely recommend!

Great place to vacation with your family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! It was very spacious and accommodating!! Everything you need is there! And Greg was always there if you had a question or concern! Peaceful setting! Only downfall was the grill didn't really work. But that's my only complaint. We had fun grilling, playing yard games, having bonfires, hiking, swimming, fishing, eating, making memories!! It's also nice that ludington is close! We spent the day there one day!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Ark! The cottage listing was accurate and easily slept all 8 of us. The cottage was clean and was equipped with alot of kitchen utensils that made cooking easy. The lake was beautiful! The beach area was clean and perfect for playing and enjoying the sun! We loved the location and were able to travel not only to Ludington but up the M-22 coast! Renting the cottage was so easy and owners were so accommodating and friendly! We will definitely return!! Thanks so much for an awesome Pure Michigan vacation!

Perfect Family Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed a full week and it was better than we could have hoped for. This place has everything you would possibly need it is truly a home away from home. Owner is very great to work with and was always very quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our trip.

Our family took a very nice trip to the Platte River and tubed right into Lake Michigan. The association is very quiet, peaceful, and most importantly this place provides a lot of privacy with a huge fire pit. Beach access is very close and we even caught some nice gills right off the fishing dock. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone and we will for sure be back. Ludington is very close which is super nice for shopping and some great beaches. Thank you for all the great family memories that this place provided us!!!
