About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Located seven miles from downtown Harbor Springs, high above 7 Mile Point, this cozy 750 sqft cedar log cabin is perfect for a couple or a couple with up to two small children. It is situated on a small horse farm, with wonderful views of pastures and horses. Approximately 900 feet down the road past the main house you come to a clearing in the woods to find the cabin sitting on the edge of the bluff... A very tranquil spot. You'll love sitting out on the large deck, relaxing and enjoying the wildlife in the woods. Your nearest neighbor is a quarter mile away.

For bikers, this cabin is set in the middle of some of the most spectacular biking in Michigan. Park your car at the cabin, click in to your pedals and off you go for miles and miles of scenic and beautiful biking.

For hiking, the trails begin right outside your door.

The large upstairs loft has a queen-size bed, bureaus and closet; for a second bed the living room couch becomes a queen-size pullout. A propane fired cast iron stove in the living room can be adjusted thermostatically to take the edge off a cool evening or heat the whole house if required. The kitchen comes fully equipped and has a dining table table that can accommodate 4 guests. A shower is in the bathroom (no tub).

The cabin is set on the back of our small farm, giving you complete privacy. Dogs allowed? Small dog(s) may be okay, please talk to us first. We have plenty of our own animals to keep you entertained!

Note: the cabin is generally closed for the winter after New Years.

For 2017 FREE WIFI is available !

The best, most relaxing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband found this place when looking online 3 years ago as a surprise for our 30th wedding anniversary, and it's SO great, we've come back every year since to spend our entire vacation here! The cabin is charming with lots of room, fresh towels and linens, everything you need in the kitchen to cook with, a beautiful loft upstairs to sleep, and a huge deck to cook out and just sit and relax and enjoy the peace and quiet and the beauty of God's creation surrounding you! The owners, Sam and Ann, are the kindest, most gracious hosts we've ever met! Anything you need, just ask and they promptly get it for you. Sam knows the history of the area, and it's fascinating! Simply wonderful people; we just can't say enough good things about them! We only get one vacation a year, and this place, and Sam and Ann are so great, this is the only place we stay! Thank you Sam and Ann!!!

Wonderful getaway!

Spent the weekend here for a mother-daughter getaway and we will definitely be returning! The property is beautiful, the cabin is so cozy and the location cannot be beat. Sam was a wonderful, gracious host and we are already planning our return trip in the fall.

Perfect 10 Northern Michigan Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I normally never write reviews on anything, but this place is absolutely incredible. The pictures don't do it justice, nor does it capture the peacefulness and relaxed feelings you experience while staying here. Sam and Ann were some of the nicest and most genuine people I've ever met. My girlfriend and I walked up the road to their house to talk to them for a while and to pet the horses and even give them a couple treats. I will most definitely be looking into coming back in the future. I highly recommend this to anyone, especially a couple looking to get away for a weekend. Thank you again, Sam and Ann... our trip was perfect.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very kind review. We enjoyed meeting you and are pleased that the cabin was up to the mark for you given the cool May weather. We hope you'll come back.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent the week in this quiet, secluded cabin in the woods. Our kids are 9/12 years old and they told us they really liked not having a TV or electronics for the week. They enjoyed playing games and listening to the radio... didn't even realize we had Wifi. So old school we loved it. One of our kids slept in the pull out couch and the other slept on an air mattress we brought with us. I would say we maxed out space, but we were very comfortable and would bring our kids up again. Sam and Ann met us as we pulled in and were very helpful with answering questions about the cabin, property and surrounding area. They told us we could pet the horses as much as we liked and our kids really enjoyed going to see the horses up the driveway from the cabin multiple times a day. The cabin has everything you would need, location is ideal for day trips to the beach, Mackinac Island, U.P., small town experiences, Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Sam and Ann live on property but we the cabin is set back far enough that you won't see them unless you are pulling up the driveway and they are out working. We grilled out and enjoyed the deck to relax in the morning and evenings.Trails all around we walked our dog and rode bikes. We enjoyed this cabin so much, we will be back, maybe even without the kids!!

Owner's Response: We really appreciate your kind review. We are always thrilled when we have guests who enjoy the whole farm environment, horses and all the animals, hiking and biking the trails. We were happy to learn that the kids didn't even miss tv. It was wonderful to see them by the fence chatting with the horses. We look forward to your return. Perhaps we'll finally meet the infamous Cosmo the dog. Sam & Ann

Perfect getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the best I have ever stayed in, absolutely perfect in every way. We felt right at home immediately and could not have dreamed up a cozier more lovely place. In fact, the day after we left, we thought it was possible we could have just dreamed the whole thing, that the cabin was so perfect and the setting so pristine that it couldn't possibly be real! But here I am writing this review so it must be. If you make it here you may never want to leave. The property owners are so helpful and kind, everything is taken care of. We will definitely be back!!!
