About the owner: Hi, I'm Val. My husband, Mark, and I grew up in Cadillac. We have 2 children, Annie and Jacob. We home-schooled Annie thru 12th grade and Jacob thru 4th grade. Jacob graduated from Heritage Christian School. Annie recently graduated from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, and is teaching part time in Holland. Annie is married to Aaron, they have a baby and live in Holland. Mark, who has a passion for the Pine River and loves to paddle, began a canoe livery service on the Pine River in 1971. I worked summers for Mark for several years while I was attending college. I obtained my teaching certificate and a B.S. Degree. Mark and I consider it a blessing to be able to live in Northern Michigan, and make a living doing what we enjoy.
Why the Owner Chose Cadillac: We built 2 homes on the Pine River. We wanted to sell one, however, until a buyer comes along we are renting it as the Pine River Vacation Rental. We have enjoyed the many guests we have hosted there and consider many our friends, and look forward to their return each year.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The location of the Pine River Vacation Rental is surrounded by state and federal public land. Things to do 'out-the-back-door' would include: paddling, fishing, swimming, hiking (or) x-country skiing the marked and maintained trail nearby, snowmobiling, hunting, outdoor grilling and picnicking next to the river, and relaxing on the spacious deck(s). Up the road a 1/2 mile is the snowmobile and ORV trail system. Eight miles north is Caberfae Peaks Ski Area. 55 miles north is Traverse city, 45 miles west is Lake Michigan.
