Wonderful way to "get away from it all"
My husband and I wanted to "get away" from all of it with our 4 year dog Abby... it was really more her vacation than either of ours! This "cozy log cabin in the woods" is just that... a very small but cozy cabin away from everything. The quietness and peacefulness is beyond what we had thought to be honest! We woke up each morning to the birds singing and the squirrels chirping away! The yard in this place is amazing! There was SO MUCH room for us to play ball with Abby! The fire pit is amazing as well! I LOVE the little table outside - I called it the "tiki" bar even though there's no tiki to it! There's also a picnic table too! There's a croquet set and other outdoor games to play... you can chop your own fire wood OR you can use the wood that's been chopped for you already. Right out of your back door you can go for some nice walks in a very heavily wooded area. I saw a black-tailed deer while out walking with Abby - we saw a lot of deer actually! And not far away, you can walk to the Au Sable river... we saw plenty of folk floating down the river in canoes or kayaks - but not too much that it spoiled us playing fetch with Abby in the river. It honest to God, was one of better weekends or 'get-aways' that we have had. It was Abby's first real vacation away with us and we were not disappointed. It was SO RELAXING... so peaceful. It was exactly what we needed to regroup and just take in nature. We wore our dog out... she slept for 2 days when we got home - even wore the pads down on one of her paws b/c she played so much & so hard! It was just fun and perfect. The cabin itself is NOT a 5 star log cabin and in Rod's description he's absolutely right - if that's what you're looking for keep on looking b/c this isn't that. The shower is a little tight - definitely not shaving your legs in there! but it does the job! Your bed(s) are the futons / sofas so your bed, living room and kitchen are all in one room. It's a little hunting cabin - small but very cozy. LOTS mosquitoes and gnats flying around but the smoke from the bon fire will help with that. Bug spray works very well too of course. If you are looking to just get away and are a low key or low maintenance kind of person(s) you will not be disappointed with this place. It's a beautiful little home. I will never forget that yard and how much we all enjoyed it! I am thankful there was a cancellation which allowed us the opportunity for Rod to open his home up to us. Thank you!
