Log Cabin nestled on edge of woods by hobby farm, along the St Joseph's river, there are on site paths and North Country Trail to hike. We are near local antique shopping, local diners, golfing and more. Peaceful area.

Limited to 4 campers. The cabin is 12 x 20 with a futon and a loft above with two single beds. Cabin has a wood burning stove for the cooler/cold months. Outside grill (like you would find at a park) and fire ring provided. Outhouse is sawdust based. There is a pump well on site for water, which is potable however filtering is recommended. Electricity provided for the three lights, mini fridge and microwave.

Cabin nestled on the edge of the woods and has plenty of wildlife to watch. Deer frequent the area along with all wildlife you would typically see in the parks. It is country dark, which makes an amazing view on the clear nights. Very peaceful.

Walking paths through the 33 acres of woods and field. Our dirt road is part of the North Country Trail, which is over 4,600 miles of trail.

The St. Joseph's river is on the property which is a two minute walk from the cabin. The river can be kayaked however, trees fall creating obstacles and can be shallow when it hasn't rained. This river is very scenic from Jonesville to Litchfield and secluded, it is a hidden gem. For a fee, we provide kayaks and, if needed, transportation to where you want to kayak. The Kalamazoo river is less than 15 minutes away and is also a great place to kayak albeit on the good days is crowded.

Like shopping? Antique shops within 15 minutes. The city of Allen is the Antique capitol of Michigan.

Bugs are included, there is no stopping them.

*WARNING* We have cats & dogs, hens & roosters and other . Solomon and Ruth (dogs) greet everyone, they will get bored with you and leave. Ruth is guarded and just needs to be told she is a good girl.  The chickens are guarded with an electric fence and the two roosters crow, whenever they like. There are cows down the road and you may smell them if the wind is right (doesn't happen often). The cats are barn cats and roam. It is their job to deter and stop the life of small rodents and they do. There are also coyotes, eagles and owls, which prey on small animals. *WARNING*

*CAUTION* We have had storms this past summer that took down many, many trees. This has impacted trails on the property and the river. *CAUTION*

Ann and Mac are generous hosts and we feel so lucky to have found their place. The cabin is a work of art! We drove in and were immediately greeted by Mac and the dogs. Parking is very close, trail is outside your door, very clean private outhouse, wood stove, lanterns, and everything else you need for a comfortable stay are at arms reach. Bring your camping essentials to supplement what is provided, just in case. We can’t wait to come back and spend more time. Thanks for sharing it with us!!
