We enjoy a great location for an up north getaway you cannot get much closer to nature than we are, at the heart of the Manistee National Forest, three rivers are nearby that are great for canoeing, boating, kayaking and fly fishing; Pine River, Little and Big Manistee.

Take in the sights and sounds of the area with an all day picnic in the heart of the Manistee National Forest. Hike and bike on three different trails; River Trail, N. Country and the Big M. And for the more adventurous, see if you can find some of the delicious mushrooms common to the area like the rare Morel, in the spring time, or the Beefsteak and Puffer mushrooms also found here.

Hunters will enjoy the wide variety of game available in the area such as deer, turkey, grouse and small game, while fishermen have the benefit of fantastic salmon, steelhead, walleye or trout found at Tippy Dam or on Bear Creek.

Winter enthusiast will take pleasure in cross country and down hill skiing, snowshoing, ice fishing or snowmobiling on two trail systems; ride from your door to the Benzie snowbird's going north or Wellston going south. Watch sunsets on the pier or just kick back and watch eagles in flight and other wildlife. On a clear night the Northern lights may be visible or just gaze at the stars as you relax by the campfire.

Contact us via phone or e-mail to make arrangements for your next up north getaway we are open all year for great fun and lasting memories and always remember, life is all the fun & good memories you make, So have yourselves a great fun filled year with super memories.
