Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are a humble couple with 4 adult children (1 in and 3 out of college). My husband and I ventured to this beautiful part of the state and fell in love with this area. After two+ years of remodeling and tweaking we're ready to share all of the fun we've had as a family with others who wish to do the same. We currently live mid-state and both are retired teachers.

Why the Owner Chose Mio, MI, USA:
Besides the spacious, comfortable living quarters with all the amenities you could want, the river really caught our attention because it is wide with a current that allows you to relax for a smooth ride whether you are canoeing, rafting, tubing, fishing, swimming, etc. This is also a designated trout stream area. The various trails are exciting and well manicured for quads, snowmobiles, motorcycles and horses. Most trail heads are within one mile from this property. So it makes for a fun stay no matter what the season happens to be!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Whether it's for one couple or quite a few with their families, this large 5 bedroom home has up and down decks with swing, picnic table, and patio furniture. There is a large fire ring out back with plenty of yard to play your favorite yard games. Bocce ball, croquet, volleyball and croquet gulf have been enjoyed. Back decks face the National Huron Forest. So much to do and see! If you need down time--it's here! If you are the active type, there are so many choices! Ideal location with 9 river inputs from Mio. Hence, the river rides can last from 1/2 hr. to 7+ hours long. Single or Small groups certainly can afford this type of fun!
