Summer months are excellent as well with a lovely setting and water just minutes away for swimming or boating. Excellent hiking in the summer months. Children and dogs can run around freely with no worry of cars or traffic. Home sits off the road in the woods with plenty of space for tents as well if needed for extra guests. For winter months snow plow service arrives automatically after 5 inches of snow. 4 wheel drive/ AWD is suggested for winter months. Prices are slightly higher in winter months due to the price of snowplowing to maintain long driveway due to EXCELLENT snow conditions.

About Angela and George Whitinger
We are a married couple from the Lansing, Mi area. We would love for you to enjoy are lovely cabin in the woods. This is a peaceful retreat with several lakes in the area. We only want to rent to others that are respectful of our property. There is a fire pit for your enjoyment and there is room outside for tents for additional guests if you choose. There is plenty of room for children and pets to run around safely. This property sits about 200 feet of the main road so in the winter months you will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to enter the property. There is a local bar and tavern with a small store for essential items about 1 mile away or less. Great food and great for families also. This is a great place to unwind and relax. No cable or internet. However I do have service on my cell phone which is Verizon. Hope you would like to enjoy this peaceful retreat sometime soon, Thank you, Mrs Whitinger

Surrounded by Mother Nature
I wish I could be selfish and tell you that this property was horrible so it would always be available for me to book, but that would be a complete lie. The property was even better as described. The main draw for the cabin is definitely the location. It is truly a "Cabin in the woods". The cabin had mostly everything we needed and had the best porch to sit and relax on throughout the day. The owners were extremely pleasant and gave us great tips for things to see in the area. If you're looking for a secluded place to stay in the middle of the woods, this is it. I can't wait to come back in the future.
So glad u enjoyed your stay!! Please come back any time you were wonderful guests!
very nice property and location. all the amenities. Very happy with our stay!!
Quiet, secluded and wonderful
Couldn't have asked for a better Labor Day weekend. This cabin has everything you need. Gave me a much needed recharge and cannot wait to go back.
So glad u enjoyed your stay !! Come back soon all the seasons are wonderful in northern Michigan!
Perfect for us!!
We rented this property for 3 people who wanted something private and close to golfing. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. The owners were very hands on making sure we got access and were flexible on vacating the property. Its not a 5 star place, but it didn't disappoint. I highly recommend!!!
So glad u enjoyed your stay!! You are correct it is not a 5 star Hotel but is clean and neat for a little cabin in the woods. Come back anytime!
Property is very nice, secluded, surrounded by pine forest! Beautiful!
Cabin is clean beautiful, has a great covered porch with rocking chairs for two. Furniture is very nice and very comfy. Great bed! Slept so good! Cabin was stocked with everything needed. Didn't realize that it was pet friendly or our little lady would have came along. We loved everything!
So glad u enjoyed your stay!! Come back soon and yes bring your dog next time they love it up there too!!
