About Bill and Holly O'Dwyer

We live nearby in Elberta, MI. We have 3 boys in Elementary School. I recently retired from The Federal Aviation Administration and my wife works at the local hospital in Frankfort.

Bill and Holly O'Dwyer purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Bill and Holly O'Dwyer chose Beulah

This is an Up North Destination! We built this cabin in 1996. We chose this location for it's seclusion and proximity to the Platte River. Without any other homes in view, this truly feels private.

What makes this cabin unique

Relaxing on the deck, listening to the river and watching kayaks and canoes drift by. Not a care in the world. Put your chair in the river and soak your feet. The river is crystal clear with a gravel bottom. Occasionally you will see fish swim by.

It's got that middle of nowhere feel... the river, the fire pit, the natural light in the kitchen/ family room... just great. Two thumbs up.

Excellent place with peaceful setting!

  • 4 of 5

We came to be close to Crystal Mountain and other attractions but the awesome setting and coziness of this place made us feel like we did not want to leave. The place is kept up well and the view of the river and the wildlife is outstanding. Just what we wanted.

Best rental property I've stayed in so far.

  • 5 of 5

Completely exceeded my expectations. Beautiful, spacious and clean cabin. The fact that it's nestled back in the woods with a beautiful view of the Platte river 25 yards away, put this place over the top. I'll definitely be back and would highly recommend this property to others.

Nice Cabin

The cabin is nice, great location on the river, stocked with whatever you need. The owners keep this place up well. Expense was reasonable. Security deposit was refunded promptly after our stay.

Very clean

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, but would have preferred a little more privacy. Unfortunately, there were neighbors right across the river from the cabin.

If you want to relax, this is the place. The river/stream is exactly as picture. Clean, well-maintained. Perfect weekend getaway. Frankfort is only 15 minutes away, for dining and a great movie theater.

We'll be back.
