About Doug Sidell
My name is Doug Sidell and I have a passion for life and for what I do! I'm a real estate broker and investor. I represent buyers and sellers of virtually all types of real estate in the Charlotte/Lake Norman area in North Carolina. My primary residence is in Denver, NC and my business is simply named after me: C. Douglas Sidell & Co. I graduated with undergraduate and MBA degrees from Michigan State University and absolutely love following the Spartans in basketball and football. Most of my free time is spent with my wife, Krista, who is a nurse practitioner and an alumnus of The Ohio State University, our son, Noah, and daughters Anna Faith and Lexi Ann. Some of my other free time is spent fly fishing, upland bird hunting, golfing, cooking, reading, traveling, kayaking, and working on just about anything around our home and Christmas Tree Farm! That's right...we also own a Christmas Tree Farm! Grace Tree Farm is where our home is in Denver, NC just 26 miles from Uptown Charlotte. I started the farm by planting the first trees just before our son was born in 2011. The farm has about 4500 Christmas trees for people to come out to and choose-and-cut the perfect tree. Life's good!
Doug Sidell purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Doug Sidell chose Indian River
We didn't buy our vacation cabin, we built it! It is a home I (Doug) designed and built in 2006 on the most perfect piece of Sturgeon River property. I (Doug) chose to buy the land because it is so close to everything that is fun to do in Northern Michigan and because it would enable me to build the type of home I was looking to construct. The finished product is a three-story cabin with a finished, walk-out lower level, a main floor that's set up perfectly for entertaining inside and out, an upstairs that is well-suited for kids and adults, and views of the Sturgeon River just 50' in back of the house. There is a never ending supply of fun things to do; especially for families with children. A few that are really high on our list include: kayaking, fishing, swimming, rafting, canoeing, boating, snowmobiling, biking, hiking, ATV & motorcycle riding, X-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, etc. and it's all just outside the front door of my cabin. I love it! I hope you will to.
What makes this Cabin unique
Some unique benefits I enjoy while staying at our cabin on the river include, but are not limited to: peace and quiet; late-night bonfires at the river; lots of room for all my guests/family members; space for the dogs to run around; relaxing in the cedar sauna; playing some of my favorite golf courses all within a 30 minute drive; cooking/BBQing big meals; watching movies on the big screen TV; listening to the birds early in the morning while drinking coffee on the deck; catching trout right in back of the house; riding our 4 Wheeler through all the back-country trails just outside the cabin; taking advantage of all the freedom!

Sidell Cabin in the winter
We had a great time 4 families 12 people and lots of room. The bedrooms worked out well and enjoyed walking the trails and the roads near the cabin. Enjoyed the sledding hill at commerce park not far from the cabin.
Beautiful cabin located within steps of the sturgeon River on a quiet dead end road. Hidden away, but very close to town.

Wow what a house
Doug was great getting in touch with us as soon as we booked. There were so many ORV trails and good food near by, the property was absolutely beautiful. Seen a coyote, and heard an owl out by flowing river around the fire. It was awesome sauna was great, beds were comfy as well. Wish we had more time there, we loved it. Hope we'll get to rent it again👍😎

What a great place!
We had our extended family stay here, (4 families) and the configuration of the beds was perfect (and comfy too). There was plenty of room for all 9 of us and with the open plan on main level we didn't feel crowded at all. The 3 full baths were a plus. We spent a lot of time on the deck and in the yard, on the hammock, and at the fire ring. The location of the cabin was perfect for day trips to Mackinac Island, Petoskey and points between. We look forward to repeating a visit in the future. Thanks, Doug for sharing your home with us!
Cathy, thank you for writing such a nice review! We're grateful for your kind words and for your honesty. We work hard to make sure our cabin is for our guests what we are promoting on the various websites. It means a ton to us to make sure our guests are comfortable and enjoy their time away from home. You and your family/friends are always welcome at our cabin when visiting beautiful Northern Michigan!
