NOTE>>>>>>NOTE: The site has eliminated all ways for you as a guest to call us and when you send us a request, they have eliminated all ways for us as owners to communicate with you as well, UNTIL, we accept your reservation. So, what does this mean to you??? It means that as home owners, we want to make sure that whomever is renting our place is the right fit for our property. The ONLY way for us to do this is via a phone conversation. The ONLY way for us to get your phone number is for us to accept your reservation. HOWEVER, just because we "accept" your reservation does not necessarily mean that we will truly "ACCEPT" your reservation. We will make that final determination after we make phone contact with you. If all seems legit per our phone conversation, then the reservation stays accepted and end of story. IF, on the slim chance, that we determine that the fit isn't right for our property, we will go back in and CANCEL the reservation immediately and you will be refunded whatever was placed on your credit card through VRBO/HomeAway. We apologize for this note and having to explain ourselves like this. Unfortunately, the site has forced us to protect our investment in this manner. We are hoping they open their eyes and make it better for both owners and guests!
Also, please note that we have a pet fee if you are bringing a dog. We ask that you check that box on your reservation request because it saves a lot of hassle to correct it when we find out a dog is being brought with you.
Rainbow Reel was constructed (in 2013) 1,500 sq ft home that sits directly along the banks of the beautiful White River in Newaygo County.
The home offers three bedrooms, two full baths, main floor laundry, a large great room/kitchen/dining area combined with a 21 ft high ceiling. The interior of the home is decked out with Up North cabin décor throughout and the entire great room, loft and upstairs bedroom has knotty pine. The main floor has a beautiful dark walnut stained, rustic circle sawn oak flooring. The inside of the home has a very rustic feeling atmosphere yet, has all the modern conveniences of a modern home.
The 3 bedrooms are as follows:
The Bear Den has a queen cedar log bed.
The Mossy Moose has a full over full cedar log bunk bed.
The Loons Nest has a built in queen bed and also a built in twin bed.
The home will comfortably sleep nine individuals when doubled up in beds (except the twin)
Dogs (Max. 2) welcome for extra pet fee. Short, medium length hair dogs preferably. Long haired dogs such as German Shepherds, Huskies, Mastiff, etc. might not be allowed without prior permission due to large amounts of shedding and family allergy! Ask us about your pet.
If you are looking for a place where you can TRULY RELAX, unwind, recharge and accomplish all of this with the utmost privacy, then this is the place for you.
HOWEVER, if you are looking for a place to party, then PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE!
The home sits on 3.5 wooded acres with 229' of direct river frontage. You would be hard pressed to find a more private and relaxing vacation home. It is like you have the whole river to yourself.
The river is great for kayaking, canoeing and tubing. It is also very well known for its trout fishing. (Tubes and Kayaks NOT provided. Please bring your own items for floating down the river)
The home has a large deck and a fire pit that overlooks the river. We will even provide the firewood.
All bedding (for the 5 beds) is provided, dinner service (plates, silverware, etc) provided as well. Pots, pans, blender, crock pot, electric griddle, coffee maker and various other small kitchen appliances provided. The only things that you have to provide would be your own food and drinks.
Outside we have provided a 6 place patio table/chair set under the pergola on the deck (early spring through late fall). We also have a beautiful 3 season porch with a 5 piece, cushioned conversation set which is absolutely amazing to relax and watch nature.
On the deck you will also find 2 lounge chairs for your enjoyment (early spring through late fall).
There is a 6 ft picnic table, a 2 person wooden swing and various other chairs for sitting around the camp fire at the rivers edge.
We have also provided a GAS GRILL.
There is NOT any WiFi or Internet Service provided at the cabin! There is excellent 4G LTE service at the cabin if you choose to use your smartphones or tablets.
Holidays require a 3 night minimum.
The cabin remains available on a first come first serve basis until we have a paid reservation deposit.
Cabin availability changes quickly. Certain times of the year, our cabin books months in advance and our best advice is that if we have the dates open that you are looking for, we urge you to reserve the dates quickly.
Our cabin sleeps 9 and is designed for 9 or less, (5 beds, so read above what beds we have) but we are willing to allow up to 12 individuals to occupy the cabin but we prefer not to have more than 9 adults.
Our cabin is strictly meant for relaxation, family gatherings, family vacations or a romantic get-a-way. Again, this is NOT a party cabin and we don't rent out for large family reunions...meant for small family gatherings. Every situation is looked at individually so please contact us with your request and we will do our very best to accommodate your needs.
Peak Summer weeks are in VERY high demand and are from Saturday-Saturday only (unless otherwise specified) and require a 7 Night Stay! Shorter stays are granted, however, the same rate will apply (again, this only applies to PEAK SUMMER WEEKS)
We welcome your inquiry. Contacting us allows us to give you the best service and answer any and all your questions with ease but the new site restrictions have taken off our phone number unless you do a search for Rainbow Reel online.
Today is the day to reserve your spot at one of Michigan's best kept cabins. Thank you and happy vacationing!
