About Richard

My family absolutely loves the outdoors and we also live on the Boardman River down stream. We enjoy kayaking, gardening, hiking, and bird watching. We take our two dogs for long hikes on the state land while looking for new exciting finds that the woods have to offer. We are also excited to share this with others who share our passion for the outdoors. This cottage is a unique place!

Richard purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Richard chose Northwest

I purchased this property quite honestly because I have been here most of my life and I have found it to be in one of the best locations in the area. I love the outdoors but like the fact that I can be in Traverse City quickly with a beautiful drive to get there. The wildlife, fresh air, and of course the Boardman river being steps away, well you just can't beat it. I see all types of birds , deer, fox, partridge, well it goes on and on. Truly it has all the flavor of the now well known 'Pure Michigan.' And how about the Fall Colors

What makes this cottage unique

Wildlife including: deer, turkeys, partridge, rabbits, bobcats, and ducks. Birdwatching: Piliated woodpeckers, eagles, hawks, owls, hummingbirds, and orioles. Hiking, fourwheeling, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing. Beautiful view of river. Kayaking, tubing, fishing, and swimming. And lets not forget the fall colors! Also we have the Chery festival in July, the Horse show in July, and the Film festival after that!

Way more than expected!

  • 5 of 5

You can't take a picture and capture the awe inspired views from this cabin. There is beauty in every direction. We found the cabin to be very roomy, and clean. We were very pleased with Richards accommodation, of a kayak trip down the river. (this is a "must do") I ranted to my family that this was our most perfect vacation..

Beautiful and completely peaceful

It was a great place for my out of town family to stay. Great view! Close enough to everything but just far enough to get away from it all!!!

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Richard's cabin! He met us there Friday afternoon for check-in and made us feel right at home. The scenery is amazing and photos don't do any justice. We spent every night around the campfire and enjoyed a little kayaking trip as well. The property and house was super clean and well-maintained. This spot is truly a little piece of heaven. We will be back!

Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to this property on the Boardman River and we absolutely love this property and the serenity it delivers. The four of us (two couples) enjoy the peaceful surroundings, beauty and nature that this house delivers. The house is very comfortable, well maintained and very relaxing with the fire pit and hot tub. Richard is a very welcoming owner and wants us to feel as though we are home whenever we visit this property. We cannot say enough good things about Richard other than he is awesome. We highly recommend this property for couples, couples that travel together, families, and small groups that enjoy the outdoors and want to get away from the hustle bustle. This property is a little slice of heaven.

Beautiful scenery and cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time at this cabin! It's set in a beautiful location with gorgeous scenery. Richard is very welcoming and accommodating. Close drive to downtown and the two peninsulas. The cabin is very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed nights by the fire pit and the wood burning stove. Unfortunately, the fishing is difficult with the fast current in the river on the property... so dont expect much in the area of fishing. Overall, great trip!
