Relaxing Retreat-Right on the River!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Peaceful Cabin On the Clam River

All the comforts of home, yet immersed in nature. The river wraps around the property on two sides and the third side is state land. It is usually very quiet and relaxing. There is one cabin across the river that is used very occasionally.

The kitchen features full size stove/oven and side by side refrigerator.

The master bedroom has a King sized bed and two chairs for relaxing by the fire in the wood stove or over by the patio door with the view of the river just a few feet away.

The second bedroom has a full sized bed and comfy chair for reading or relaxing. The large, sunny living room has two newer pullout couches. There is also a love seat and a chair

There is no internet or television.

There are 2 picnic tables near the river. There is also a glider to sit by the campfire. There is a large yard in the back for running around and hanging out.

There are miles and miles of ORV trails just down the road. The Clam River is excellent for tubing, kayaking and canoeing. There are 2 kayaks available for your use. It is very walkable for fishing. It is sandy and shallow right in front of the cabin, but has a couple deeper pockets on the opposite side. There is a bridge just down the road that the kids drift down to on tubes, then can easily walk back and do it again and again.

The yard is clear in areas but wooded between the cabin and the road and also on the east side, which is the state land. There is a charcoal grill available for your use.

The nearest grocery store, restaurants and bar are in Marion, about 15 minutes away. There is also a store/gas station in Leota which is about 10 minutes to the east. They have a few groceries and good pizza & icecream.

If you would like to explore northern Michigan, there are several beautiful towns not too far away with beaches, golf, winetrails, etc. Cadillac is about 35 minutes away, Traverse City is 75 minutes or so.

About Owner/Manager

We have 5 children and enjoy the outdoors. We don't use the cabin as much as we would like, due to our busy schedules and thought it would be nice to let others have the experience we enjoy so much! The setting is very calm and relaxing. There is no wifi and cell signal is spotty, so we enjoy lots of quality time together playing games, reading, swimming, kayaking and making smores.

Owner/Manager purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Owner/Manager chose Marion

We knew the moment we drove up that this was the perfect setting for us. We love how the river wraps right around the property and there is state land on the other side.

What makes this cabin unique

Privacy, peaceful natural beauty

We loved it. The setting, the cabin and the location. If you live the great out doors there is nothing more to say about this place. If you are planning a get away look no further because you can have it all right here.

The owner's are amazing.

Cozy, quirky, serene cabin on the river

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! While the cabin itself had some cosmetic quirks, it was warm, cozy, very clean, and everything was functional. We loved the peace and quiet we found here. You can tell this place is well-loved and full of memories. For a fall getaway, nothing beats waking up on a chilly morning and sipping hot coffee while watching the river flow by outside the window. The wood stove in the master bedroom is amazing! Whether sitting by a bonfire next to the river or curled up in the cozy living room with a good book, we found everything here to be welcoming and relaxing. Tracy was great to work with and had some very helpful suggestions for nearby restaurants, stores and places to visit. We would definitely come back again!
