Clean and classy

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin right on the Betsie River. The property is nicely wooded with beautiful overview of the river below. Two big screen TVs, gas fireplace, wood paneled walls. Sleeps 10 with individual beds, even more if couples. Outdoor fire pit and plenty of plowed parking. Rob, the owner, took good care of our needs. We're planning our next trip already.

Cute Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The temperature was unusually high which made it a little uncomfortable because there was no a/c. But overall we enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful. Everything we needed was there for us. The location is quiet and the surroundings are beautiful. The pictures don't even begin to do justice to how beautiful and crystal clear the river is. We had a wonderful time!
