                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: My wife and I both grew up in Michigan and for the last 32 years we have lived in Traverse City. We have 3 sons and daughter in laws. All of our family have been very active in sports and outdoor activities. While growing up my fondest memories were at my grandfather's cabin, and fly fishing with him and my father and brothers. Since fly fishing has been a passion of my wife and I, we decided to purchase our beautiful log home on one of the finest trout, steelhead and salmon rivers in the Midwest. With steelhead fishing open year round on our stretch on the river we didn't need to be strapped by the regular trout season requirements. We also love the comforts of luxurious living so we have equipped our cabin with nothing but the finest furnishing with a flare towards northern rustic decore. This is truly a one of a kind vacation get away that I hope you will enjoy as much as we do.

                      Why the Owner Chose Baldwin:
                      Wanting that "up north" feeling of privacy but yet be close enough to drive easily within a couple of hours of numerous larger cities we decided to look at fabulous fly fishing areas in mid Michigan. We found the perfect spot. With river frontage owned on both sides of the river, 1800 ft. of private frontage and 80 acres to hike, explore or watch the numerous types of wildlife on the property it is truly what we were looking for. Kayaking, canoeing, swimming and river floating are just a few of the many activities that abound. Don't have kayaks? No problem we have some that can be arranged to be used all week at our cabin.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Want a day trip? Just 20 minutes away is one of the most spectacular free city beaches in the Midwest. Ludington city beach has free parking right at the beach and you can walk the pier and view the lighthouse museum. Watch the boats come in and out of the Pere Marquette harbor, or charter one for yourself. Visit the numerous quaint shops in downtown or eat at one of the great restaurants. Head south about 20 more minutes and visit the dunes at Silver Lake. Rent a dune buggy or try it on your own. These dunes on Lake Michigan and Silver Lake are truly worth the drive.
