About Shawn Mullins

My wife and I both work full time and live in south eastern Michigan. We have 3 beautiful daughters who keep us very busy! We kind of fell into the vacation rental business and have grown to love it. Its awesome to share our homes with people and hear about how much they enjoyed themselves and how many great family memories they made.

Shawn Mullins purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Shawn Mullins chose Northwest

We purchased this cabin because of its location, layout. It is the ideal size for families and the nearby lake has a great beach area. We always get compliments about how cute and comfortable it is. We are always trying to think of ways to improve our places and make them as user friendly as possible.

What makes this cabin unique

The Ten Point cabin is only 4 blocks (10-15 minute walk) from Little Crystal Lake which is a awesome little fishing and swimming lake. Great little beach and playground as well. Close to the Big Manistee, Pine and Little Manistee Rivers. Lake Michigan and the Little River Casino are only 15 miles away. You can catch the snowmobile trails from the driveway and Caberfae Ski Resort is only 12 miles away. Crystal Mt is only 22 miles away. The location is perfect and the firepit area is perfect for making great memories or just relaxing.

Cozy and modern cabin

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay at the cabin. Cozy with lots of room for sleeping. Excellent customer service from the owners.

Went hiking and sledding at Big M, just a few minutes from the cabin. Plan to return to this cabin to mountain bike at Big M in the spring.

Exactly as advertised and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My cousins and I recently stayed at this rental for a girls' weekend. The house itself is well equipped, a perfect size for groups of up to at least 7, and very comfortable. The property is great as well. We enjoyed walking to little crystal lake nearby and it's a short drive to the famous general store and other attractions. The owner, Shawn, was very responsive to our questions and inquiries as well. We look forward to another stay in the future!

Cozy cabin comfort that really made our stay great

  • 5 of 5

This cabin made our Ski trip at Caberfae a great experience. The cabin had all the basic ammenities that you'd really need at a cabin including cable television that kept the kids entertained after the long days on the slopes. We slept six with ease and the layout kept us all engaged at all times.

Comfortable get away cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has everything you need for a get away weekend with family/friends. Upstairs twin beds were very comfortable and had its own bathroom. Husband had a great time taking pictures of the night sky. Family really enjoyed walking trails nearby. Enjoyed finding geocaches along the trails. 5stars! will be back again. Wellston is a nice little quiet town.
