Cabin was a perfect size for a family of 5 adults. The pond wasn’t what we expected do to Mother Nature (water level was low). It’s close to town for shopping and Lake Michigan. It’s very quite so we were visited every morning by a mama deer and 2 babies.
Secluded Cabin in the Woods
We had an amazing time at Cabin in the Woods! It was the perfect place for our family of 3 to stay on our first family vacation. We made some great memories over the campfire making smores, taking our daughter fishing for the first time, seeing her face light up when she saw the deer in the yard, and being able to watch her interact with nature. Absolutely priceless! So many good things to share, but here are some highlights:
I was surprised at how many kid friendly additions there were at the cabin. They had a box by the pond filled with buckets, shovels, pails, frisbees, etc. which kept our toddler very entertained; a step stool in the bathroom so she was able to brush her teeth/wash her hands; dvd players in main room and kid rooms so we were able to play her movies with no issues; the main room also had games, coloring books, crayons/markers, kids DVD's, and children's books.
We saw deer everyday at the cabin. In particular a mom and her two fawn.
We also saw turkeys, black/gray squirrels, and frogs, turtles & fish in the pond.
There were no neighbors visible. We felt completely alone and loved the escape/privacy the property provided. Aside from the occasional car that we could hear on the main road, it was completely secluded.
The cabin is brand new construction and is complete with all new appliances. We even had some challenges with the oven because we weren't used to something that heated so hot so quickly :)! Not a bad thing, just took a breakfast (or two) to get used to.
The cabin while secluded was only a couple miles from a gas station for any items needed quickly. Also, it was a great jumping off point to Manistee (10-15 minute drive) and Ludington (25-30 minute drive). Both towns offered lots of fun activities for the whole family.
Items for improvement
The grill - The first propane tank we tried to use we could not unscrew the knob. The second tank worked fine, but we noticed on day 3 that there was a leak in the tubing and could smell the propane. Definitely need to have that checked/serviced.
Wasps - We found a wasp in the cabin almost daily. Always located near the front of the cabin by the windows. We were never able to locate a nest, but would recommend checking for one.
All in all, if you're considering this place for a future vacation, definitely take the opportunity. You will not regret it :)!
In the Woods
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Very nice cottage on a secluded lot. Our grandson and dog loved the pond! So peaceful and tranquil. The grass needed cutting and a bit of outside maintenance would make it perfect.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review. We are glad to hear you were pleased with the property and had a great vacation!
