Perfect Cabin in the Heart of Michigan

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived at George's Retreat I was already excited about the location!! The house was tucked nicely behind some trees overlooking a field on a dead end small dirt street in the back of a tiny village. Our lab loved exploring the clean cut path leading to a hilltop across from the cabin. The cabin was clean, well maintained, and had everything we needed during our stay. After having breakfast in the quaint, yet roomy kitchen we would venture out to explore all the wonderful things we love about Michigan including a visit to the Iron Fish, a distillery just a short drive away. We enjoyed dinner at the cabin in the evenings while sitting on the deck and found it quite relaxing to build a fire to hang out by before going to bed. The nights were super quiet and we slept well. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone who wanted to share their vacation with their pet as we like to do. Jackson, our lab, felt very comfortable here! There is a small market across the highway which is well stocked with everything you would need as well as the Bear Claw Cafe which is super cute and quite yummy!! We really enjoyed our stay! Would love to return next summer. THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS WONDERFUL CABIN WITH US!!!

This place never disappoints

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a weekend get away or for me a great economical place to stay when attending a conference at Crystal Mountain which is literally just 5 minutes up the road. If you are looking for an upscale boutique experience this is not the place for you but for people like me that like quaint, homie places to stay this is definitely it. ALL the comforts of home. One tip, the town of Copemish pretty much shuts down at 6pm so make sure you bring groceries or even better plan to drive to Traverse City to experiences great dining options. Also, the local Copemish market has a great selection of craft beers and Michigan wines. Love, love, love staying here

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This home was great. It is the second time we stayed at one of George's properties. It was clean and had anything you could need. In a quiet area but just a short drive to Beulah and Benzonia .

Nice, comfortable and well kept.

  • 4 of 5

I would stay there again. Take the time to walk up the trail across the street and check out the view. This place has everything you need, just be careful of the difference in flooring between the hallway and living room, because you'll stub your toes.

Nice country retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three plus dog had a great time at the cottage in Copemish. The cottage is located in the village but on a dead end street away from the highway. It is a good base for exploring the area including Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City. The cottage is quite comfortable and spacious for 3-4 people and the grounds around the cottage are great for kicking back and enjoying the Michigan environment. We would definitely stay here again.
