This place was perfect. I came up with a couple of buddies and despite my car breaking down, we had a great time. Aprils family will do anything to help out their guests. They even drove us from the broke down car back to the cabin. The roosters were awesome, and the little boy Zack was great company always keeping great conversation with us.

A special place surrounded by love
What an amazing experience. Aprils Land is stunning. The cabin is perfect for a minimal UP getaway. Surrounded by gorgeous trails and wildflowers you will forget all your troubles. They are so welcoming and will help with any questions. It’s a very special place.

We loved this spot so much last year, we came back again this year. It is the perfect location for exploring the area. We loved hiking up the back side of Hogback, biking the dirt roads, and lounging on the deck and hot tub. April and family are incredible hosts.

April and Mike are very welcoming and responsive hosts, and their place is gorgeous! The Acorn Retreat tiny home has everything you need, and is in a great location for wanting to spend time in the woods, while also being close to town. We loved their garden, chickens, and their big ol’ moose - dog! ❤️ We wish we had booked our stay for longer, but I would definitely recommend booking this spot!!

April is such a great host and the homestead is so amazing! Wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely would love to come back again soon!!

Best Spot Ever!
I stayed here last summer and then decided to return again a whole year later because I enjoyed my stay that much! I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to reconnect to the outdoors. 10/10.
And April and her husband are wonderful human beings. Really enjoyed having them around. I’ll be back again next year!

Loved April’s spot! She was incredibly welcoming as was her family, Moose (her dog), and BB (one of her chickens). Trust her directions! They’ll get you there!
Beds were very comfortable, the outhouse was clean. If you have a low riding vehicle, you may have some trouble with the driveway, but my Prius managed. 👌🏼

Beautiful setting and generous host
We are so grateful that April and her family are willing to share their beautiful land with us. It was a winter wonderland! We had everything we needed to be warm, dry, and comfortable. I know they work very hard to to accomplish this. The hot tub was amazing after a day of ice climbing. The bedding was more comfortable than ours at home! So much better than the typical hotel room. Study directions ahead of time. We'll be back to Acorn Retreat!

Wonderful Snowy Weekend from Chi
Wonderful 2 night/3 day stay at April’s cute little cabin! Directions were clear, and even in the February snow we were easily able to find the property. The Nielsens were such gracious hosts - we had plenty of wood and water for a nice, cozy stay. All four of us were talking about when we next want to come up here well before we’d left. Beautiful property, beautiful animals, beautiful people. 5 stars all the way!

Love the woods!
April’s property was fantastic! Although it was a freezing weekend April was super accommodating by letting us use the wood stove for heat as well as a space heater. We loved the location and really enjoyed driving around the woods there! We will definitely be coming back in warmer months! The hot tub was a fantastic touch! A 4x4 vehicle is super helpful in the winter months.

Great for a Fall Weekend Getaway
We had a splendid weekend at the Acorn Retreat. April and her husband were very accommodating and the fresh eggs from their friendly chickens were delicious! You can access hogback mountain and a lot of biking trails within just a short walk of the cabin. The hot tub and heated cabin were nice for when it got colder in the evening. Would recommend stargazing at night and renting the fatbikes for a fun morning workout! It was the perfect way to recharge.

We had a wonderful stay at the Acorn Retreat! April was so hospitable, the cabin was adorable, and the chickens roaming around were a real treat. It was a perfect getaway for us and we'd highly recommend it to anyone else.

Acorn cabin is a hidden treasure. The views are so beautiful day and night. Very peaceful environment. I would definitely recommend.

We loved our stay at Acorn Retreat! Although we had some trouble initially finding the cabin we absolutely loved our time there. It is so clear that April put so much care and thought into the cabin and it was such a cozy place to spend two nights. We cannot wait to go back the next time we are in the area!

Cozy and peaceful
It was lovely to stay here! Getting there was a little confusing the first time, but once there it’s just so quiet and peaceful. It’s near to lots of hiking, some you can even walk from here to the trail. We really enjoyed the hot tub for the cool nights, and the grill was great too. Marquette is super close if you need anything there. April is super sweet and the chickens were fun to see.

The drive in feels really remote, even though you’re only 10 minutes from town. I recommend arriving before dark your first night. Look for the “HR” at the end of the driveway. I had my doubts that I could make it down the drive without getting stuck but my car got in just fine. I drive a Prius.
April is a very friendly hostess and responds quickly to questions. The acorn retreat is just as cute as advertised. And you really are in perfect proximity to anything you want to get to in Marquette.
We hope to stay again soon! We already miss the chickens.

Peaceful Woodland Setting
My teenage daughters and I just loved staying here! It seemed very adventurous and was a perfect location from NMU in Marquette where my daughter had to move in for the year. We loved hanging out together in a peaceful place!

Quiet, green and magical.
This beautiful property is a little hard to get to in a Prius but it was worth the challenge. My friend and I went the wrong was past the property and almost got stuck so definitely follow directions. There are chickens everywhere. The chickens are so friendly and like to hang out so if your an animal lover you will adore the chickens. We didn't spend too much time with the hosts but they seem sweet with really good senses of humor. The acorn retreat is clean and cozy water, eggs, microwave, potable water, clean outhouse and hot tub. The evenings are magical beware of acorns whipping down from the trees! Thank you host and hostess for sharing your paradise with us!

Amazing place. My family has rented many places and this is my all time favorite. The location and hospitality cannot be beaten. Thank you for all you do!

Our family of 4 had a fabulous stay at Ridge RV! The location was perfect, the property was beautiful, the camper was spotless and well stocked, and our hosts were so welcoming. We loved the private campfire spot under the hemlock trees and quick access to Little Presque Isle and Marquette. We will definitely be back!
