Comfortable cute cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the cabin. Very cozy and loved that the essentials are stocked in the cabin. Paper products, garbage bags, and soaps. Not all places we have stayed have provided these producrs so it was a great surprise to find them. Thank you.

Almost Perfect

  • 3 of 5

The cabin, the location, the scenery, the accommodations, everything was SO lovely. Except...the bed. It was so uncomfortable we even tried sleeping on the couches for our second night of the stay, not exactly romantic. Two sleepless nights and two trips to the chiropractor when we returned home. The bed was so bad I knocked 2 stars off what would have been a 5 star review. Would absolutely recommend if the mattress were replaced.

Wonderful place! Every review on this one is spot on. I came to enjoy the beautiful fall colors. Priceless. Thank you Kristi for sending extra information on what was going on that weekend. Enjoyed the lift ride at the ski resort.

First stay Up North

  • 5 of 5

Kristi & Steve rescued our vacation! We were lucky enough to find the A-frame available after Hurricane Irma ruined our FL plans. The A-frame is just as advertised. Homey, secluded and very clean! Kristi was there every step of the way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. She assured us she was only 5 minutes away if we needed anything. The kitchen, bath and laundry were well stocked. The river was an easy walk through the woods and we enjoyed sitting on the dock and chatting with the boaters as they passed. Never got the chance to take advantage of the canoe...so many things to do in the area. Plenty of good places to eat close by. Easy trips to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes and Mackinac Island. Our week at the A-frame was the relaxing getaway we needed!

Cozy, quiet cabin with all the essentials!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and can't wait for the next chance to stay again! The cabin was perfect for a couple's get away in the woods and it had everything you could think of that you might need outside of your food and clothes. Very clean, well kept, beautifully updated, and smelled great! Cozy feel with no noise around you, and a gorgeous location. The hosts were wonderful and sweet, they made our stay even better!
