Over 500 feet of beautiful river frontage on the Clam River. So many fun things to do, or do nothing at all! Kayaks are available to use. With a fishing license, there is fishing along the banks of the river. It's only a short distance to places for dirt bikes riding, side-by-sides, snowmobiles, snow shoes, snow skiing, and several golf courses. There is a nice walking trail for morning or evening walks. In the yard is a fire pit area with a picnic table and log swing to relax on. In the yard is an artesian well that flows into a small pond. Rustic with nature around, yet comfortable. The cabin is cozy with all the essentials, and has a screened-in porch for eating breakfast or just sitting and listening to the birds sing. The cabin sleeps seven. There is one queen bed, two sets of bunk beds upstairs, and one roll-away. Linens and towels are provided. The kitchen has everything needed to cook. Marion is just 9 miles and has a grocery store, or Cadillac & Houghton Lake are 25 miles away.

About Shelly & Rich
My husband and I love the outdoors! We kayak the Clam frequently. We love our cabin on the river!
Why Shelly & Rich chose Marion
We bought this property because it is our home away from home when we can get away. Its such a beautiful place in all seasons! We own both sides of the river, and it is so peaceful!
What makes this Cabin unique
The river brings a variety of wildlife to enjoy! You can kayak, fish, swim, walk, enjoy a camp fire. play games, and enjoy quiet time!

Great Place for our family to relax and get away to!
Very nice and clean Cabin! We really enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back in the future!
We're so glad you had a great time! Thank you!
Great spot on the river!
A very comfortable and relaxing place near some great ATV trails. The screened porch was a great place to hang out. We had a wonderful two weeks of vacation!
Beautiful little cabin
Shelly and Rich were both so attentive and very kind. Rich recently built a little stairway to get down to the creek with gives you access to the Clam River. The house itself was beautiful, cozy and more importantly, clean. Very roomy. They have a roll out bed upstairs which was great to have. We took a stab at fishing with no luck, should have done some research before. The river is at its best for fishing during the night time from what I saw. The sunroom was great for us when the rain started coming down!
All in all, this place is highly recommended by myself and my group.
Nature calling (and no one else...)
If you want to get back to nature and off the grid, this is a great choice! I needed a peaceful retreat to work on a novel, free from the distractions of daily life (I'm looking at you, email and Facebook) and it delivered, while also affording a front row seat to a spectacular view (the beautifully babbling, leisurely meandering Clam River just steps from the screened in porch. The shushing of trees all around and the giggle of flowing water were the perfect soundtrack. Do note, though: Bring something to keep the mosquitoes at bay. This is nature, after all, and they were there first.
Our security deposit was not returned. This may be a common occurrence. We requested but received no pictures of any damage, and were told there was egg remnants left in the kitchen. We never made eggs. They didn't fill the propane tank. The locks were difficult to maneuver. The fire pit was full and had to be cleaned out. The wood burning stove was full and had to be cleaned out. If we were supposed to vacuum or scrub the floors prior to leaving, it needs to be defined by the owners before guests leave. It's like being asked to clean a hotel room after your stay. Still not sure why we paid X amount for a cleaning fee and then an additional 3X that amount for our nonrefundable security deposit. Won't be back. What a shame.
I loved this cabin. It was peaceful and quiet. The owners are great at communicating right away too. I will be back in the future. One thing I loved the most was kayaking and having no phone signal.
