A calm, kind, lovely camp spot
This was such a lovely stay! The cabin is really great, well insulated and pretty big proof too! Jackie was accommodating and pleasant and so kind. We loved seeing Cashew the dog and watching the moon rise over the trees. What an amazing stay. Would definitely come back!!!
Off the grid family getaway
We had an incredible time staying at Jackie's Lil' Ranch. Jackie was so hospitable, we loved snuggling with all of her animals (our girls couldn't get enough!) and the cabin and location were just divine! We set up bunk beds for the girls in the cabin and a tent for my husband and myself, we enjoyed the privacy and slow pace, exploring local towns (downtown Ionia, Saranac, and Lowell) and rest and relaxation! Already talking about a trip back this fall. LOVED IT!!!
amazing experience. would recommend to anybody. i haven't even been home a full day yet, but i already miss it. would love to do it again maybe in the winter too! it's about the small things, and that's what shows who really cares. jackie certainly pays close attention to those details. just book your stay and it'll be a great time
This was our second time staying here, and we loved it just as much as the first time :) It's private, peaceful, has a lot of character, and the new outhouse in a wonderful addition! And, Jackie the host is super kind and accommodating. Our girls love the creek, the fire pit, the horses and most of all, Cash the dog :)
We look forward to returning again some day!
Jackie had great communication whenever we needed her for anything. Beautiful location. Outhouse was wonderful! Perfect for 2 people that didnt want to tent camp.
Really close (10mins) to town with everything you might need but not too close...
P.s. Try the mobile bbq place right in town
Yummy pulled pork !
I had such a great time at Jakie's place. The accommodations were better than I expected them to be. The new outhouse was beautiful and clean and the cabin was so darling. I will absolutely be staying again, hopefully in the fall or winter to enjoy that wood burning stove!
Private, relaxing, 10 out of 10!
Very clean inside and outside, all the tools you need to be comfortable (thoughtful things like heavy duty bug swatter, box of matches, mosquito coil, wood stove stocked with kindling, goodies hung all around inside and outside)... all the animals were very friendly and sweet, the doggy Cash is adorable and so gentle and playful! Jackie let us feed a couple apples and carrots to the horses Jamina and Pheobe, sweet friendly horses! Quiet, relaxing, private, perfect for cozy weekend getaway with oil lamps and lots of nature sounds and birds. We saw a crane land in the creek avout 20 steps from the door. Cleanest outhouse in the world. Everything was perfect and as advertised, not one half complaint poasible. Jackie is very friendly and easy to talk to. Will stay again next time in winter to enjoy the cozy wood stove. We found a bunch of really cool downtown Ionia antique shops and milkshake shop. Would recommend anyone visit to just get away from your emails and phone and life for awhile!
I'm from Chicago and I was looking to get away from it all for a long weekend. There were a lot of options close by, but Jackie's ranch stood out to me and I'm so glad I booked with her.
This is a great location that is tucked away in central Michigan and very peaceful. I brought my 2 dogs and they had such a great time exploring the ranch and playing in the stream. Everything is exceptionally clean and well laid out. Upon arrival, Jackie came down to greet me and gave me some great tips on things to do in the area. I highly recommend booking this location if you get the chance.
A step back in time
My wife and I had a wonderful getaway this July. This rustic, cozy cabin was just what we were looking for. The functioning stove inside and fire pit with grill outside, we enjoyed pioneer-style cooking and living. We were shocked that after the rains we had, we had no issues with bugs or pests and kept the windows wide all night long. Jackie is a terrific host and the cabin (and new outhouse) were very clean and well appointed. Can't wait to return.
