Wildlife, woods, and timbers, describes the unique Dream Catcher Log Cabin. Located near the Little Muskegon River (3/4 mile of a walk/drive to the river through the private, wooded area), Dream Catcher Log Cabin provides a gorgeous backdrop for creating memories with your family. With 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, this custom-built log cabin sleeps 10-12 people (10 in beds, and 2 more on full-sized sofa). You will enjoy the private 60 acres of Huron-Manistee Forest, Wi-Fi, 3 TVs , a jetted tub in the master bedroom and a fun kids playhouse which was built to match the main log cabin. The Dream Catcher Log Cabin is not for those who dislike taxidermy, as there are a few statues of deer, turkey, and fox in the living room.
Topping out at 2200 sq. ft. Dream Catcher Log Cabin comes equipped with kitchen, including a dishwasher, high vaulted ceilings, large windows, a gas fireplace (with a blower) and a landscaped fire pit area. Relax in the jetted bathtub on the main floor or take a walk through the 60 acres.
This pet-free, air-conditioned environment is crisp, clean, and welcoming.
Keep in mind that although it may appear the cabin is secluded, there are neighbors within 200 feet. Noise travels within the stillness of nature. We need our guests to adhere to a good neighbor policy with a 10pm-9am quiet time for outside activities. Please watch for the Freshwater and Dream Catcher signs to alert you to the property lines for the 60 acres.
