About Paul Matthews
Paul and Sara Matthews are the owners of this cabin which is adjacent to their 200 acre equestrian facility. We have owned this property for 20 years and enjoy it with our two young children, 3 dogs and numerous horses.
Paul Matthews purchased this Cabin in 1993
Why Paul Matthews chose Harbor Springs
We are both natives of Northern Michigan and love community of Goodhart.
What makes this Cabin unique
We chose this property for its size, beauty and the fact that it is surrounded by state land and Conservency.
Beautiful and peaceful
It was a clean, cozy cabin with all amenities included. It was a perfect get away in a beautiful area. We will for sure be back!
Wonderful, relaxing vacation
The cabin is beautiful and very clean and comfortable.
The kitchen is very well equipped (even has a blender). The bathroom shower has great water pressure. There are plenty of heating mechanisms for chilly mornings or evenings.
I loved having coffee on the screened in porch in the mornings. My daughter enjoyed watching some movies from the DVD collection (lots of family friendly options) and playing Camp, the board game. She also enjoyed having the loft to herself (would only recommend loft for older children as you need to climb ladder to get there).
There is a beautiful forest walking trail that starts just a few feet away from the cabin.
We enjoyed dinner and the amazing view at Legs Inn. We enjoyed pie from the General Store in Good Hart.
There is a type of shooting range close to the cabin (I knew about it ahead of time as the owner mentions it somewhere in the reviews). There is shooting noise that can start as early as 8:30 AM. It is not very loud when you are inside the cabin but can be sometimes when you are outside. If you have kids who wake you up by that time anyway or you plan on being out and about during the day then it's not a big deal. If you want to stay at the cabin all day and need absolute quiet then you should take that into consideration.
Perfect vacay getaway
Always a pleasure to stay at this authentic log cabin. Beautiful property and clean cabin. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Paul (cabin owner) is always accommodating and pleasure to work with. 😀
We love this cabin. Paul is a great host. The cabin and property is beautiful. This was our 3rd visit and we will be back. We traveled with our 2 boys, 3 and 1.5 years, and it works out great.
This property is clearly not for four adults ... 2 kids and two adults would be more accurate.
There is a shooting range right next door and that begins at 8:30 am.
Beds and bedding very uncomfortable and tired.
Absolutely no where comfortable to sit in living space.
The cabin was clean and the surrounding farm and countryside are lovely.
The cabin is unique and cleverly decorated.
Fabulous quaint cottage with all of the amenities!
My family and I really enjoyed this quaint little cottage hideaway in the woods. The beds were comfortable, the space cozy, the outdoor space lovely! We enjoyed the trails with our dogs and the beautiful stars at night. We lacked nothing in the cottage, it had everything we could have wanted or needed including wi-fi. We only wish we could have stayed longer to explore more. We will be back!
This is a new point I feel must be mentioned I Paul Matthews have received in the past 3 years of rental on VBRO 3 complaints from guests about noise from the nearby outdoor club. It is a World Class outdoor skeet and clay pigeon range that the public , including our guests can enjoy and pertisapate inn for a fee, I myself have used this range and there hours of operation are limited to ,open at 8:00am and close at 8:00 pm ,7 days a week and the noise is only noticed when the wind from the East . Beautiful rural setting surrounded by conservancy and state land. Hiking and trails galore! Lots of wild life and bird watching opportunities. Several nice beaches within 2.5-15 miles. Mackinaw Island 40 minutes and a ferry ride away.
