Great hospitality and loved the cabin
Homeowner was very responsive during the booking process and helpful in answering out questions. He was also very pleasant and personable and accommodating upon arrival providing us a detailed walk around. The cabin was just as we expected and what we had hoped for. Fully furnished with a riverside feel and decor. The neighbors were very quiet and we felt as that we were in a world of our own. The river was simply Beautiful and it was fun speaking to all the passer by's in canoes. The quaint town of Grayling was a short drive away and filled with everything we could need. Take the kids to the Coke a cola Resturant for a burger and a shake, it's a great treat for a vacation town. The bunk house was great for the older boys and have them their own place of adventure and independence. While the cabin was filled with so many pros, the river access for the kids was less than accommodating from a parents perspective. There were two docks, one was in need of repair and the ladder into the river wasn't all that safe. It wasn't attached and there were rusty nails sticking out. The lawn near the rivers edge had open holes that anyone could step into and some were covered by high grass. It's a wild river and to be expected but not at a rental. Fishing for the kids was also limited with low hanging trees in the yard and at the rivers edge making it very difficult for casting. Actually for me too even as a seasoned fly fisherman. (Lots of small Browns and Brooke's caught and released with a short wade) All in all we were pleased with our time there but can't say I would book again with my young kids. Few small tweaks to this property and it would be one of my all time favorites.
