Wonderful Getaway

We stayed here for a fall weekend. The cabin is beautiful, and we especially enjoyed the interior painting ("rosemaling") all over. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, and all the other facilities are more than adequate. The cabin is located between Lake City and Cadillac, so you have easy access (a few miles) to those areas too.
