All about Experiences in life.
This was a awesome Experience. This is the first time my sisters and our families have been able to travel all together being adults. My mom loved spending time with us and her grandkids. We were soo close to everything too see. We went and seen waterfalls, Pictured Rocks, Miners Castle and All the beautiful fall colors. The cabin had all the necessities as far as dishes and cleaning supplies we just had to grocery shop and buy fire wood. I enjoyed riding the bikes also. We took a late Night canoe ride around the river in the rain. It was all about having fun for us and we were successful.
This was the second time I booked a group weekend getaway at this cabin. We loved it so much the first time we had to do it again, and it didn't disappoint. The owners take great care of the property and the cabin is beautiful, comfortable, and clean. We will definitely stay here again in the future.
Great place to stay
Would definitely consider renting again
Great Family Cabin!
This was such a great choice for our extended family! We had six children under 9 and six adults, and this was perfect. We could drive down to the river beach in five minutes. It was close to Munising, where we did a couple of different cruises (the pirate ship for the kids, and the Pictured Rocks sunset cruise). We also headed over to Mackinac Island one day (it was a bit of a drive--almost two hours-- but it was the windiest day and the water was really choppy, so a great option despite the drive). There are multiple waterfalls nearby for sightseeing.
The beds were super comfortable. Even the people who slept on the futon said it was comfortable. We had a fire in the fire pit for S'mores one night, and everyone loved having the paddleboat and canoe to use for short trips in the river.
Overall, this was a great choice! If we were vacationing back in the UP, we would choose this cabin in a heartbeat!
Great lodge for a large family getaway!
Our family really enjoyed staying at the Reel Inn Lodge. We had 11 adults, 2 children, a toddler and 2 babies and we all fit and slept comfortably. (Even with 2 pack and plays in the lofts) Upon arrival, the most appreciated and unexpected amenity was the air conditioners in the upstairs lofts. It was a rainy, scorcher that weekend and we slept so well with them, thanks Matt! The lodge is stocked to the gills with everything that you need to cook and eat with which was extremely appreciated. The lodge was exceptionally clean and most importantly, well maintained and loved down to every last detail. We enjoyed the outdoor area with the large fire pit and direct access to the river for our kayaks. We even met the owner and he made sure our weekend was going well. Again, thank you for a memorable weekend Matt and Holly! P.S Parents of little ones, “the cave” is a great place for toddlers with all of the neat DVDs they have! Holy cow!
This property and this home was amazing. The pictures don’t do it justice and all in our party were pleasantly surprised. We made wonderful memories here: swimming in Au Train, biking, canoeing in the river, splitting wood and making campfires, exploring Presque Isle and cliff jumping, boating along Pictured Rocks, hiking, rock skipping, geocaching and so much more. This place was perfect for centralized exploration and had everything we needed for the kids, the adults, and tons of outdoor adventures !
