Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We met some friends for a getaway. The Kalkaska location got us out of the bustle of Traverse City but close enough to get to all the excitement of the city. The cabin was exactly as advertised, quiet, and we produced some of the best s'mores ever created by a campfire. An excellent view of sunsets and the stars were brilliant. All of the switches were well labeled and functional. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed some good night's sleep!

  • 5 of 5

I would 100% recommend staying here! The cabin exceeded my expectations, and the location is great. Only about 40 minutes from traverse city! It was more than enough room for 6 people, even though it is small. Very pleased with my experience here.

Beautiful scenic cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Charming little cabin with tons of space!! Nice and clean with everything you could ever need to make some tasty food and enjoy it out on the deck...which gives a beautiful view of the sun setting. Also, Kim was great with getting back right away with any questions! If you want to just get away for some peace and quiet, this is an awesome choice!
