Craftsman style, 2 bedroom cabin with large windows overlooking the designated "National Wild and Scenic" Pere Marquette River.
“We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy cabin. All of the fun little trinkets and collections and the thoughtful touches were just perfect. We had everything we could need to kick back and relax in this beautiful location along the river. The first evening we sat on the small deck and planned for future visits, a sure sign of an awesome find.”
Unique treehouse cabin with all amenities inspired by forest ranger lookout. Though not actually attached to a tree, the outpost treehouse sits in a white pine forest in the middle of a 65 acre active farm. The 15 hand crafted windows allow for great views watching out for Michigan wildlife--White tail deer, turkeys, owls, coyote have all been spotted from the elevated wrap around deck.
“Stan and Deb's treehouse getaway exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds. The uniqueness of the treehouse setting, the views, the attention to detail and the relaxation factor was stellar. It was so peaceful which is just what the doctor ordered for us. Stan and Deb are a delightful couple and excellent hosts. We loved seeing hummingbirds at the feeders outside of the window and the sky full of stars at night on the deck with a glass of wine in hand. Coffee and Deb's homemade cinnamon muffins on the porch in the morning wasn't shabby either! :) We ventured out a few times to the Ott Biological Preserve and Woodland Park to walk and explore which were relaxing and enjoyable. We got take out from local restaurants and enjoyed dinner on the treehouse deck and s'mores by the fire after watching the sunset across the field. I booked this Airbnb getaway as a birthday gift for my new husband and he has repeatedly said it was the best birthday he's ever had and I believe the accommodations were key. We can't wait to go back!”
Zane’s Landing is a cabin built in the middle of the Manistee National Forest, it sits alongside the Little Manistee River which is a blue ribbon trout stream and an excellent steelhead River. Guests will enjoy the private deck built along the river and have 100’ of river frontage all to themselves. Inside guests will find that the home has been completely remodeled, the owners paying attention to every detail. Come enjoy all that Northern Michigan has to offer.
“The photos do not do this place justice -- if you are considering a stay in the area and want to be close to the woods and all of its activities, look no further! But beware that the house and its grounds are so charming and comfortable that you may no longer care about the activities you previously planned, you will just want to sit on the lovely screen porch with a cup of coffee, listening to the chorus of birds and smelling the pine forest. Or better yet, sit river-side and listen to the current ripple past. What a treat! Regarding what to expect for the house itself -- everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained, all utilities and appliances were in great working order. Beds were comfortable, good water pressure in the shower. Kitchen was fully stocked and thoughtful snacks were left for us (kids loved this). Bring your own paper towels, and plastic wrap / plastic storage containers. Bathroom stocked in case you forgot your razor, Q-tips, shampoo, etc. TV worked great and there are books and games if you need other distractions. No wifi. No cell service. No joke, its a 20 minute drive to get a good signal. Bring bug spray or expect to be heading back into town to get some -- being outside of the house is not really tolerable without it. Also, make sure to check all skin and clothing for ticks after being out. We would go out for 20 minutes for a dog run and come back and find one or two. Lastly, the host, Michael, has created a fantastic book with maps and recs for everything you could imagine doing in the area, which was so helpful without the Internet available to research exactly where we were going to go. Enjoy your stay, this place is a gem!”
