Owner info

About the owner: John and I traveled North for years from the Flint area to vacation in the family cabin near the banks of the AuSable river in the little lumbering town of McKinley. While taking a Sunday drive we stumbled on a deserted farm with 80 acres, it was pretty run down at the time but we loved it and just like that we made an offer, went home and sold our home in Flint and moved the family "up-north" to enjoy the good life! We named our hobby farm Jocacherra which represents the first two letters of the family's name. After raising our three children in the area we now are the proud grandparents of eleven grandchildren...how time flies!" Years later, we sold the family farm and purchased this 40 acres of land deep in the wood, John built the cabin out on a beautiful ridge and renamed it the Jocacherra Lodge, and a few years later he built our permanent home just down the trail. That's when we decided to open our cabin to guests and let others enjoy the same experiences of vacationing up north. Although sadly, none of our 3 children live in the area now, they all enjoy coming home to spend time with us. "We love it up here and think you will too!"

Why the Owner Chose Mio:
Seclusion, the sounds of nature, time to think, unwind, kick back and relax! Enjoy a leisurely walk in the woods, take a drive to the Beautiful Ausable river for a float trip or cast your line in the water for some fly fishing excitement. Evenings can be spent soaking in the hot tub, sharing a glass of wine, while viewing the stars and the sounds of the forest. Enjoy morning coffee on the deck and if your lucky you might hear the call of the Loons from nearby Perry Lake. Antiques decorate the cabin and send you back to a time gone by. Everyone loves this place!
