Property Description

Nestled in the beautiful Jordan River Valley, this cozy cabin is a writer's dream. Located seven miles from Mancelona, this woodsy retreat provides easy access to hiking, fishing, canoeing, and skiing. Shorts Brewery, and their famous craft beer, is a fifteen minute drive to downtown Bellaire. Traverse City and Petoskey are just forty-five minutes away. Wander the gardens that are part of the small turn-of-the-century farm, or just enjoy the quiet of the north woods.

The Jordan River Valley is part of the Mackinaw State Forest and is truly one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in northern Michigan. Its river was the very first to be designated as a wild and scenic river by the Federal government. The Jordan River Pathway provides 18 miles of trails and is part of the North Country National Scenic Trail.

Winter note, the fireplace shown in the photo is not operational at this time. There are plans in the works but the heater for the cabin sets in the fireplace space as of now.

Fantastic Fall Get-Away

We were hoping to backpack two days in the Jordan Valley for a night and use the cabin as a before and after backpacking point, but Michigan weather kept us in the cabin. The leaf colors were still fantastic. We enjoyed our morning runs in the neighborhood including some nice hills to give us flatlanders a bit of a challenge. Short's Brewery had gr... Read More

So clean, comfortable, inviting!

Mary's cabin and hospitality just can't be beat! We booked a long weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and could not have been more pleased. The cabin is so charming, clean and comfortable. Combined with Mary's perfect hospitality - she was a text away if we needed anything but gave us our privacy - it made for a memorable stay. We would... Read More

Great little cabin!

We had a wonderful time this weekend! The cabin is very cute and the swing, fire pit and shady yard are great places to hang out in. Mary is a great host! We will plan to return soon! ~Erica

Second Time Is a Charm

This was our second stay in Mary's cabin over the last 3 months and we loved it. It was our 27th anniversary and it was nice to get away from it all. Cabin was perfect, it was nice and quiet. We had 3 days of great weather. It is a beautiful, short drive to Torch Lake so we enjoyed sitting in the water for a few hours. Shorts Brewery never disappoi... Read More
