"My husband and I spent a blissful week at this wonderful cabin. I think the thing that surprised us the most was that although is is just minutes from shopping and restaurants, the location of the cabin itself feels very remote and peaceful. I prefer to be near shopping and restaurants, yet want to feel away from it all, this cabin delivers on both fronts. We kept saying to each other, "Can you believe this location?"
The cabin has the complete Up North feel. Our first morning there we woke to the sound of the loons welcoming us to the lake. I went into the kitchen to make coffee and was excited to find a Michigan State Spartans mug waiting for me. I had my coffee, and classic "pie for breakfast" on the deck while watching the baby geese peck along the shoreline in front of the cabin. It was heavenly. During the day we did all things Northern Michigan, and came back in the evening to build a nice fire and watch the sun set. It was our best vacation in years, and we highly recommend this classic Up North cabin and the peaceful experience it offers.
I must also mention the beds. I felt like Goldilocks, they were just right, and the bedding was super soft. We slept, as my husband says, like teenagers.
The owner of the cabin was extremely responsive to all of my questions and emails. Very easy to deal with and accommodating.
I also want to mention our favorite meal of the week. We went for the Sunday brunch at the Apache Trout Grill in Traverse. We're still talking about it, it was that good. Do not miss their prime rib or the sweet potato french toast. The cost was $19.95 for brunch, they definitely lost money on my visit....it was that good."
