Our Lil' Ranch is a unique property. When I purchased it my dream was to share it with friends and family. Between working and life this doesn't happen often enough. It is a shame to let the cabin go on used so much of the time so here I am offering to share it with you. My dream is to make more of Our Lil' Ranch into an event center. Hosting weddings and gatherings. While here you may see some wild life, stars, my dog, cat and 2 horses. God and I welcome you to stay at Our Lil' Ranch.

This cabin was a cute little gem so close to downtown, but felt like it was off the grid. Everything was clean and Jackie was such a fantastic host. Miss this place already and can’t wait to go back.

Went for a weekend away and it was just that! Forgot the world existed when surrounded by trees, the sound of the brook, and no electricity. Jackie was amazing and let us know what to expect before we even got there, and there was plenty of tools around the cabin in case we forgot one. Would recommend bringing more blankets than you think if the weather is cold, and don't worry about the bathroom situation as that was the nicest outhouse I've ever been in!

Worth Checking Out
Jackie was an awesome host. The cabin was nice. The outhouse was top notch. It even has a sink with a drain which made it easier to brush my teeth and wash my face. There's all kinds of stuff around the cabin that she provides. Axes, rakes, shovels, chairs, can openers, beer bottle openers and oil lamps. I didn't use the stove but you can use it to cook on if you want. She provides a good size bundle of firewood for $5. Her horses Phoebe and Jem were characters. They like baby carrots and will come down to check you out. I met the famous Cash, Jackie's dog. Very sweet and playful. You'll be welcomed by him upon arrival. The water from the well was super high quality. As good as spring water from the store. I went for a jog at the Ionia State Park. Worth checking out. There's all sorts of things to do there including all the hiking trails that weave through the park. It's close to town where you can shop. I definitely plan on returning. Thanks Jackie. Zack

With the fire roaring it was nice and toasty inside. Jackie has wood available and the slab wood is hardwood and burns excellent. The horses and stream add a nice touch to the setting. She came by to say hello and she is a very nice person and easy to talk to. I would recommend going here and relaxing.

Loved the little cozy rustic cabin! We had a great time enjoying the heat of the wood fire stove on some cold winter days and interacting with Jackie's 2 horses and cats. Plenty of parks and nature nearby for hiking. The outhouse was very clean, and the property was pretty and quiet. Great place for a rustic getaway.

Perfect getaway!
Our Lil’ Ranch was the perfect weekend getaway for me and my guests! Located minutes away from any shopping and hiking you could need, yet the camping spot feels perfectly isolated. The cabin itself is a good size for couple or small group. Having the wood stove on a chilly weekend was a game change. That along with the clean/roomy outhouse elevate this from typical rustic camp spots. Jackie was very communicative and kind, checking-in with me before and upon arrival while also being accessible if need be. Overall, I’d highly recommend this spot for a unique weekend getaway! Jackie is a stellar host and her property is well located and beautiful. Thanks!

Staying here was so lovely! We came with our 6 month old and the wood stove kept us plenty warm. The property is beautiful and you can hear the creek from the cabin. The animals are all so sweet and the host was incredibly warm and welcoming. Im also a person who is very anxious about outhouses and let me just say, this is hands down the most comfortable and clean one I have ever seen. Having a sink made all the difference and there was plenty of space to move around (and I am not a small person).

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!!!

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!

City getaway!
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 ! Thanks Jackie.

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!

Great Getaway!
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.

Jackie is a great host and the property is big and remote. We loved the feeling of being all alone out in the woods, but having a coffee shop a few miles away. Don’t forget mosquito repellent if you visit in the summer!
