About the property

Outside features include fire pit, covered porch overlooking the Manistique River, and grassy riverbank spot for fishing or river watching. There are over 24 wooded acres to roam during your stay.

The nearby town of Germfask has two canoe liveries/camp grounds located on the Manistique River where you can rent canoes, kayaks, and tubes and receive guidance in planning UP river trips on the Manistique, Fox, and other UP rivers (and lakes).

The Seney Wild Life Refuge visitor center is a short drive to the north. The refuge offers numerous activities including hiking paths, fishing spots, and a 7 mile nature drive. Nature-related activities are scheduled throughout the year.

Also nearby is the lake resort town of Curtis which features watersports, antique shopping, and restaurants.

Regional attractions are a short day-trip away. The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Lake Superior and the towns of Munising and Grand Marias are less than an hour drive to the north. Attractions near the town of Newberry can also be reached in about an hour. Tahquamenon Falls and Whitefish Bay are also popular destinations that can be visited on day trips. Less than an hour to the South is the north coast of Lake Michigan including beaches, the town of Manistique, and the Fayette (ghost town) Historic State Park.

Cozy log home

  • 5 of 5

We went trail riding and the Log Home in the Forest was perfect - the location is great, it's quiet and it was very comfortable for the 8 of us. The Campbell's were great, available if we needed them - We look forward to our next stay!

Great cabin! Second time renting.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second experience in this cabin and it easily met our expectations. It looked like some new appliances were added since 2015. The cleanliness, location, and ease of renting the unit were all positives. It is such a relaxing home, it is hard to leave. The only issue was the poor drain from the shower (a minor inconvenience in our opinion). The owners were very pleasant to deal with and had the cabin ready to go for out arrival.

We'll be repeat customers again in 2020 or sooner.
