Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to our cabin on the Holy Waters of the Au Sable River that sits on 5 acres of wooded property and offers you everything you could possibly want to escape into the peaceful serenity that Northern Michigan offers. Whether it is FISHING, HIKING, GOLFING, SNOWMOBILING, KAYAKING or simply escaping to a peaceful and relaxing environment, our cabin will suit your needs.

We're located on a prime stretch of the Holy Waters, a 'flies only', 'catch and release' section nationally recognized by people all over the world. Simply walk out the front door and wade into the river and experience the pleasure of fishing in the world class Au Sable River.

For those of you that enjoy winter sports, the cabin is located inside the snow-belt region of Michigan. The annual snowfall in this region is significant and the snowmobiling you will experience is nothing short of spectacular. We have taken advantage of riding right from the cabin to both the Grayling and Gaylord snowmobile trail systems. The convenience of not having to trailer your snowmobiles to a trailhead is a luxury you can experience while staying in this cabin.

Our cabin is located within minutes from charming downtown Grayling where you can visit the quaint shops and restaurants. Other nearby attractions include Forest Dunes Golf Club which was just ranked #1 public golf course in America (10 minutes), Mackinac Island (85 miles north), Hartwick Pines State Park (15 minutes) Hanson Hills Ski Resort/Park (10 minutes), Gaylord/Traverse City/Lake Michigan/Petoskey and many others.

The cabin offers 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. The master bedroom has a queen bed while the other two rooms have oversized built in bunk beds. There are also 2 daybeds in the great room. We offer a full kitchen with new appliances. All beds include linens and towels are provided.

We hope you enjoy the cabin as much as we do and hope you are able to create your own memories here.

Great little cabin in a beautiful spot...

  • 5 of 5

Really great location. Quiet, private, right on river, lots of space, clean, functional, well supplied. Had some trouble finding it so better directions would have been good. (Turn left at big wooden Whippoorwill Association sign and take that road all the way down to the cabin where it dead ends) Phone reception was spotty for Tmobile especially but also Sprint and AT&T.

Another pleasant outing and venue

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodation for a bunch of fly fishermen on a beautiful stretch of Ausable water. Sleeps a crowd and even we 65+ year olds can still make it into and down from the bunk beds.

An improvement would be some rod racks on the back wall.

Also accommodations would benefit from a full time cooking staff....Ha Ha

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We reviewed many cabins and decided on this one due to location of our xc skiing weekend plans. We arrived late Friday night. The directions provided where perfect. When we got to the cabin we were vey pleased. It was warm, clean, comfortable, and waiting for us.

After we unpacked we bundled up, turned off all the lights and stepped outside to see the billions of stars. WOW!

We cooked our own meals and the kitchen had everything basic that was needed. We also brought a slow cooker so that when we returned from xc skiing, we had dinner waiting for us.

Our dogs came with us and they loved the place as well. We took them out to walk the property several times and the property offered room for exploring. The river spans the entire back yard of the property and theres a smaller river along the front of the property. No neighbors to see and plenty of trees. As someone else reported, pictures don't do this place justice. We really want to come see it during summer months and explore the river.

If you're looking to get away, without internet or TV, this place will satisfy that. There was a small radio in the cabin so we listened to NPR while sitting on the day beds looking out the large windows into the back yard. We saw deer each day that we were there.

The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was nice. Perfect family time!

Thank you for offering your cabin to us. It's location and surroundings pleased us very much.
