Why Tracy & Danny chose Kalkaska

This is a beautiful location. With no neighbors, it's a peaceful place. We have children, so making this a family center for our family was very important. This is the place where my family and I unplug from the outside world and plug into the wilderness, lake time and s'mores by the campfire. It's our ultimate dream vacation home.

Canoe the AuSable River (Grayling liveries 20 mi)

This place is better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

The place is very nice and cozy. We loved the big porch. I wish the weather cooperated a little better so we could have used the fire pit a little more. Since it did rain some we were able to watch movies on DVD, so that was fun. I would recommend this place for anyone looking to get some R & R and connect with nature. 😃👍🏻

Great location for a snowmobile trip. Close to the Hideaway Bar

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay with a group of friends. The cabin is nicely decorated and has a wide open concept for socializing with friends. We never ran out of hot water witch gets 5 stars in my book. The cabin is less than a mile away from the intersection of trail #679&791. It's a great spot. Just a heads up you have to park the truck and trailer about a 1/4 mile away and haul your gear on the sleds up to the cabin. Not a big deal though. Makes it more fun. But all and all its a great place for snowmobiles

We had a great trip. House is very wheelchair friendly as my husband is a paraplegic. The orv trails are right by the cabin. Beautiful trails, rode everyday. Thanks for sharing your cabin. Hope to come back sometime.
