This peaceful cabin retreat is located in a Christian campsite on the outskirts of the Manistee National Forest, Michigan, and can accommodate four guests.

Linens and towels are not provided.

Outside, there is a porch with a bench overlooking the fishing pond, a great place for Mom and Dad to relax together while the kids play. Guests will love enjoying meals together outside with the barbecue grill and picnic table, and as the sun sets, there is a fire ring to light up, so guests can huddle round, roast s'mores and sing songs into the night. Nearby, there is a lake with a boat launch for some aquatic fun.
