Very clean and cozy cabin. Peaceful setting and close to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Our family of four were very comfortable in the cabin. Enjoyed the enclosed front porch. Thank you for a great stay!

The little red cabin was a great place to stay. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, and just outside of a fantastic town. Our family loved the rustic feel of the cabin, and it was great that it was stocked with everything that we needed. We also enjoyed the fire pit in the backyard. The only negative was the foldout bed on the couch was not the most comfortable. And hopefully bugs and spiders don't bother you. But it's understandable since it's in the middle of the woods.

This place was charming and host communicated well, which helped us plan. We loved her tips of things to do in the area. It was a short drive to beach and lots of great trails.

This cute, cozy cabin was perfect for 4 adults. There were plenty of towels, hot water and kitchen supplies. The front screened in porch was perfect sunny spot for breakfast. Elberta and Frankfort are cute little towns and it was a quick 30 min drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Be sure to check out the Stormcloud Brewery, Inspiration Point, Crystal Gardens (for local rocks, minerals, and antiques), and the Cherry Hut. T-mobile doesn't have cell service, but Verizon does, and the cabin has wifi.

A perfect little cabin in a great location. We needed a place to stay so we could travel to Sleeping Bear Dunes. The hosts were always accessible and helpful.

Very quiet. Nicely kept old cabin with homey touches. Kitchen had everything to fix meals. Great opportunities for bike riding. We had a comfortable stay and especially enjoyed an evening fire in the fire pit. Host was very responsive to our needs. Beds were small and a little too hard for me but we enjoyed our stay nonetheless.
