About Dennis Giffels 231-233-6529

The little town Wellston is actually my hometown. I graduated from Brethren High School, and grew up fishing every fishing hole, and bicycling all over Wellston, Irons and Brethren, skiing and snowmobiling (of course). After a couple of decades in environmental drilling, I moved on to get my contractor's license and real estate license, and have spent the last 5 years learning more about creating an amazing vacation rental than I ever thought I would know. I pride myself on offering a vacation home where guests are even more impressed when they arrive than when they see the listing online. I also know how important it is for families to have a space to share and be comfortable in. When I find myself saying, 'you know, it would be great to have...', I start working on making it happen for my customers.

Dennis Giffels 231-233-6529 purchased this house in 1971

Why Dennis Giffels 231-233-6529 chose Wellston

Wellston is such a hidden treasure. And this home is right in the middle of all of it. There's an incredible playground across the street. The beautiful beach at Crystal Lake is 3 blocks away. Fishing within walking distance. And we've all watched the Dublin store transform into the local phenomenon it is, with it's famous Dublin Jerky. Out on the main drag, there is the White Tail Party Store, M-55 Market (great steaks!!!), The Cozy Kitchen, Fisherman's Headquarters. , the Dublin General store which is just a few miles away has great jerky & fudge. Keep on going to Irons, and you'll run into Jackie's, the Oak Grove Tavern, and the Iron's Cafe.

What makes this house unique

The 6 person Hot Tub & Gazebo has been completed and is ready for your enjoyment!! Plus LCD TV's in every bedroom. We also have installed 2 beautiful electric fireplaces, one in the living area & one in a bedroom. We already have A/C, WiFi, big screen plasma TV in the living room and a fabulous kitchen set-up. Little extras matter - supplies well stocked.. That's why I try to make sure you have starters of all the extras many other places don't provide - hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, paper products, trash bags, plenty of outdoor seating. Suggestions for extra amenities welcome!

Fantastic vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and property. The house was perfect for what we needed. We bought groceries on the way in and never left the house. It has everything that we needed, clean, hospitable, comfortable, and perfect for a get away. The hot tub was fantastic and festive. Our only complaint, although completely minor, was the lack of channels on dish network. No Thursday football, haha. We will be staying there again soon. Thanks Dennis.

Nice clean house with plenty of amenities

  • 5 of 5

Up in Michigan for a fishing trip with a group of friends. This house had plenty of room for the group to relax with enough amenities to make us feel at home. The house was clean and well cared for, the kitchen was up to date and well stocked. The beds were comfortable although the top bunks could be an issue if your a touch claustrophobic. Hot tub was clean and a welcome addition after a long day of fishing. All in all a great place to stay in beautiful northern Michigan.
