The log cabin "The Eagle's Nest" was a cute cozy warm cabin in a middle of a November snow. This cabin is located directly across the road from the shower house. There's other cabins, sorta set up as a little neighborhood.

Our GPS would not take us to the address given so we never made it and cannot give any further feedback. Make sure you have good directions before arrival.

We had a great stay tenting at White Horse Ranch. Sandie was there when we arrived and helped to show us all around. Even offered to help us set up in the heat of the day. 😃 Then when the weather changed she came by to let us know we could shelter in the barn if it got bad. Lucky we had a great tent and a 4 star time.

Outstanding host and amazing camp!
Sandie’s ranch was by far the nicest campground we have ever stayed at, public or private. Not only is it beautiful, but Sandie may be the kindest person we have ever met. Our friend joined us but didn’t want to tent camp. He stayed in a room in the ‘barn’ and said it was fantastic. The ‘barn’ has several rooms, a living room, and a kitchen with plenty of spices and utensils if you forget something. It was an 18 hour drive to get to this place and we loved it so much we will come back next year.

Sandi's camping wonderland was such a great escape from the tourist hustle bustle of the UP.

The experience was AMAZING. Sandie, "The Host" is very laid back and fun to be around. Free spirited experience with knowledge of things to do in the local area if inquired. Beautiful Farmette with pond, tenting was fun but but the barn glamping will be our next try. The barn is converted to 4 bedrooms and looks cozy. Lake Michigan access for kayaking, light house viewing just down the road, an old iron mining town around the corner. Can't say enough how fantastic the experience was and how lovely the host is. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Sandie was very welcoming and helpful with our last minute booking. There was easy access to Lake Michigan and the common areas were very nice.

I had a wonderful time camping on Sandie’s land. She met us when we arrived, helped pick the perfect spot for our tent, and even started a campfire for us. The bathroom was clean as well. Would love to come back!

Just what the nurses ordered
Three of us came early in the season and did the barn glamping option. Loved it!! So many interesting things inside and out. Bed and couch super comfy, great game table! Sandie was a wonderful host and really enjoyed chatting with her. Can’t wait to see all the projects she has planned! Thank you Sandie, the 3 nurses will be back!

Very impressed with Sandie's place
If you're second guessing, I would not hesitate to book this place! The grounds are well-maintained and Sandie's got most everything on hand in case you forget anything—food/snacks, cooking/grilling supplies, brochures/maps. Even the outhouse is real homey. We made a last-minute trip from Chicago, and Sandie's amazing hospitality really blew us away. Her place will only get better with time and we can't wait to stay here again. Lovely place, even lovelier host.

Camping in wild
It was a wonderful camping experience. Sandy has 20 acres of forest where you can go and camp anywhere in that area. She has six designated campsites, but we chose to camp far away from everyone. The is no picnic table available, and don’t pay for the firewood. There are lots of wood in the jungle; you get it for free. Sandie is an amiable host.

Amazing base camp for your UP adventure! The owner Sandie goes above and beyone to make everyone feel like family! She was very accomodating, helping us choose the perfect spot to park our camper. Lots of space to spread out and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is an amazing cedar grove, perfect place to hang your hammock. Fun park just up the road to visit a lighthouse and go swimming. I was sad we didn't have more time to spend here. My daughter is already asking to go back again!

A beautiful getaway
A really gorgeous place run by a wonderful woman, she's still working to put some of the final touches on it even though it's already a great space so I'm sure it can only get better. She's been managing air bnbs for a while so she knows what she's doing and it shows. A nice place close to the water and a lighthouse also only a short drive to a lot of other picturesque places on the UP. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a getaway.

Great place and wonderful host!
We changed our minds about tenting and chose to try glamping in the barn. We are so glad that we did. The barn was so unique and such fun. Sandie is a truly amazing host. She went above and beyond to make sure our stay was exceptional. Her property is beautiful and so close to the lake. I would highly recommend staying at the White Horse Ranch and I know that we will definitely be returning.

A friendly corner of the world
I had a great five days staying at Sandie’s. I stayed in my tent with my two pups. The campsite was lovely with a mossy path and bird song throughout the day. Sandie was nice enough to offer us space in the barn the night of a bad thunderstorm and we were very glad we took her up on it! So the barn “insurance” and the kitchen access made camping easy. The inside of the barn is done up really nicely so it was a great place to hangout and Sandie was making it even nicer as I was leaving. Also the farm eggs are delicious and Sandie made some really yummy muffins for us. The location is perfect for a relaxing, restorative visit. I hope to return soon!

Convenient Solitude on Stonington
A beautiful place to make a temporary home in the woods. The barn amenities really take stress out of rustic camping ‐ whatever you forgot they have, plus shelter in an emergency. The "Pennywizzer" outhouse is easy to find at all hours and has no horror-movie vibes. Sandie is dear. She was helpful with site selection and UP adventure recommendations. We enjoyed swapping adventure stories with her by the fire before retiring into the woods.
