About Barb & Bruce Wamsley
This property has been in our family since 1964. Bruce's parents converted a barn that had been used to store and rent equipment into living quarters. They would travel up from Oak Park, MI with their four boys to work on this property on weekends.
Barb & Bruce Wamsley purchased this Barn in 1999
What makes this Barn unique
Dock is available if you are traveling with your own boat. In addition, we are two miles from Renegade Riding Stable where riding lessons are available. The near-by public beach is shallow for a long way from shore and is great for families with small children. The deeper swimming area enjoyed by the locals is called the Green Docks and it is just 2 doors down on the river.

A great location... Bruce was very helpful and friendly... A great place for 2or 3 ppl.... very cozy and right across from Indian river and close to some local restaurants... I will visit again enjoyed our stay... Thank you Bruce and Barb
Loved the “Up North” decor. Well stocked kitchen items...with variety of pots/pans/bowls/glasses/etc
Loved the option of being able to dock a boat right across the road if needed. Very cozy place. We prefer a firmer bed, but otherwise everything was perfect. Would stay here again if we come back to the area. :)
The barn rental is neat, clean and well equipped for two to three people.
We enjoyed our stay at Barb and Bruce’s. The property is neat, clean and well equipped. The highlight is their dock with a beautiful view of Indian river. Both Barb and Bruce are very friendly and accommodating.
Great location and hosts. The rental was well maintained with lots of amenities.
Rental was clean, well stocked, cute and full of character. Owners were very friendly but not intrusive.
Located near the Greendocks (local swimming attraction on the river). Be aware the road is busy and you need to cross it to access the dock and river. We had use of our own driveway and was able to entertain visitors without interfering with the landlord.
Used the washer and dryer on premise the last evening - which was awesome!
Unlike a hotel saying "pet friendly" where you pay extra, our 2 small dogs seemed to be as welcome as we were.
Hope to return.
Loved our retreat on the river!
We had an amazing experience for our first time in northern Michigan. When we stayed here, we felt like guests at the cabin. The owners are so kind and generous and want to make sure you have a great time! We really enjoyed chatting with the owners, who were very kind and helpful with tips for activities and site seeing ideas. We really appreciated their hospitality and suggestions!!!
The property is a lower level, two bedroom cabin with a nice kitchen and an amazing location so close to many attractions. The kids loved being able to fish in the river off the dock right across the street! The public dock is just a few yards away, where you jump on the river and float down to the ladder to climb out to do it all over again!
A short 30 minute drive puts you in Mackinaw City, Potoskey, or Presque Isle. We couldn’t have picked a better place for our base camp!
We felt like family staying here, and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
Great stay! Wonderful hosts! Good price!
We enjoyed our stay at this very cozy cabin with access to the best swimming spot on the Indian River. The hosts were great as well. This will be the place we stay when we come back.
