It's not why this property but why not.This updated cabin will charm you vacation in many ways. Lets start with the beautiful location and and the access it has to all your outdoor needs and pleasures,plus the beautiful river that nestles 100 from the front door.This newly decorated cabin will give you that out of town feel but also provide you with some at home basics like internet access and a wall mounted big screen TV to calm the little ones down while the outside grill is preparing the evening meal.

What makes this cabin unique

Great location that has year round activities. Quaint updated inside decor with new furnishings. It also has a key-less entry so you don't have to worry about lost keys while canoeing.The newly added loft is a great escape for older kids, teenagers and the young at heart .City conveniences are just right around the corner for those things we seem to always forget to pack.

A short walk from the cabin you will find Big Bear Advantages to rent all your river rafting supplies (Tubes,Kayaks, rafts), McDonald's or Burger King, Kens grocery store, a smoke house BBQ/ Bar restaurant with karaoke, Wilson's Rivers Edge Restaurant, Subway and a great fish smokehouse.

super cute sturgeon river cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great place that is close to many different activities! Whether it is going to Mackinac to buy fudge and enjoy time on the Island. or going to Petoskey to jump off the pier and look for Petoskey stones, this is a great place to stay! You can also walk to Burt lake State park to spend time on the beautiful beach or go tubing down the "cool" Sturgeon river. Harbor Springs is a great place to have lunch. We also loved sitting on the back deck watching all the people float by. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

Owner's Response: Glad you loved the cabin. If you want to venture a little further next time hit the wine tour trail in TraverCity it makes a great day trip. Coffee lovers can also walk to North Star Nursery for a great cup of coffee now serving Star Bucks.

Excellent cabin for family trip up north

  • 5 of 5

Anna is really easy to work with. The cabin is even better in person than the pictures show. The owner does a lot with the space of the cabin. There were 4 of us in this cabin and we are a tall family (all 6’ or taller) and we never felt cramped.

Supermarket and Starbucks/ Cafe a block away. Tube/ canoe/ kayak rental within walking distance, Burt Lake State Park (Devoe Beach) a short bike ride away, Cross in the Woods was just a 2 minute car ride away and there are lots of eating choices in the area. I will put it this way; we went on a vacation at the cabin with 17 year old and 16 year old boys that didn’t want to go and once we got there they asked if we could go every year.

Cozy cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a quaint cottage in a beautiful location! We used this as a jumping off point to explore the Northern Lower Peninsula and were not disappointed. Close to Mackinaw City. Close to northern Michigan lakes. It was a lovely summer kick off for our family!

Very nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice cabin. Although due to weather we did not get to enjoy the outdoor space as much as I would like. The outdoor space would be a very nice spot to enjoy northern Michigan. The river is beautiful. Nice quiet area that is close to everything you would need. The cabin is not huge, but is very functional and there was plenty of room for the 4 of us to spread out a little and have our space. The cabin was very clean and organized. The kitchen is very well stocked with the utensils that would be needed for any cooking that is needed. The communication with the owner was very easy, and willing to take care of anything that would come up. This cabin will be on my list to stay at again if I ever find myself in the Indian River area again.

Thanks for sharing your cabin.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 6 men for trout opener in Michigan. We absolutely loved the cabin and location. The weather was a little cool but we had a fire in the fire pit and it was great. The radiant heat furnace works very well. It has all the conveniences of home and was decorated Upnorth Michigan. Really cool! My wife would have loved it. We caught 6 Walleye and 2 brown trout right off the sea wall in the back yard. The sturgeon river is one of the best fishing and kayak streams in Michigan. Melissa (owners sister) lives locally and is very helpful without being intrusive. I use VRBO a lot and this is one of the best. We will definitely be back next year.

Cabin on the river in the middle of everything. We stayed August 2017

  • 4 of 5

It was nice to have the deck overlooking the river.The cabin is in the middle of everything! We went to Sault St Marie and toured the locks ,Gaylord in search of Elk, drove the of tunnel trees stopped for coffee and had a wonderful Polish lunch at Legs inn went to Mackinac island wonderful! The lumberjack show is a don't miss the beach is not far from the cabin it is small but very nice. The cabin was comfy and had most everything we needed one thing missing was a lighter so we had to go get one before we could have a fire. I wish the beds were more to comfy maybe I am just used to my own bed?
