We've been there twice already and had a very good time. The cabins are cozy, the surroundings are beautiful, clean, and very inviting. There is a bonfire pit, gas and charcoal grills, you can go fishing on the lake there, and watch all the stars at night, it is just pure Michigan. The nearest (bigger) grocery store is about 10 min drive. I think there is free WiFi as well but we didn't use it since we came to relax and enjoy the quietness.
The owners are very friendly and helpful. I wish they were my Grandparents :)
We will definitely come back to this place. We recommended it to our parents and they went with their friends once and loved it as well.
