“BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY!!”
Reviewed 17 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was an amazing location, perfect for all of our needs! We had an absolute blast! The view was marvelous. Could not ask for any better, especially for the price!!! I hope who ever buys it continues to rent it out because this place is a true GEM. Thank you for everything Todd!!
Hope to make it back in the future.

“Serene,Calm,Beautiful!!!”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This place is absolute heaven. Just what i was looking for, from the past 2 years. The sunset from the back porch overlooking the lake is stunning. Todd is very helpful, responds very quickly. We came in late at night, so Todd made a video on how to reach the cabin and left the tablet in his mailbox, it helped a lot. Will definitely go back soon.

Thank you Todd.

“Quiet & secluded place. Owner is incredibly helpful and easy to contact!”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If you're looking for a nice place that doesn't feel touristy and overcrowded, than this home is perfect. Ostrander Retreat is in the Hiawatha National Forest, so you have your own space and beautiful surroundings! We brought our dog - the area was perfect for her because she had room to run around off-leash and swim in the lake. A great location to come back to and relax after a day of hiking and site-seeing.

The home itself is a little old, but it's clean and comes with all of the amenities necessary to enjoy your stay. Ostrander Retreat is a moderate distance (15-40 minutes) from hiking trails, gorgeous waterfalls, beaches, etc. The drives are easy because the area is beautiful and you can always stop along the way to check out a road-side hiking trail or park.

We were even more impressed with Todd's hospitality. Even before we made it to the U.P., he was quick in responding to my (many) questions and offered a lot of help in finding the place. When we arrived, he left a book of local attractions and had a letter answering common questions about the location/home. Unfortunately, our trip ended rather abruptly due to an emergency and Todd was incredibly understanding and helpful to us when we had to leave unexpectedly. The location and the owner's kindness and reliability make this home a great choice.

“Clean and Quiet”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife and I have stayed here the past 2 years and love it. It's only about 25 miles from anything we want to do and 20mi. to town. The cabin is a modular(more like a house) on the lake that is very clean and comfy. Todd (the owner) met us at the midway store and took us out the 1st time although it's not hard to find once you've been there. It isn't the newest place around but Very clean and quiet. The lake has some good bluegill fishing on the north end. Had an issue lighting the stove and Todd ran right out and fixed it. My stupidity, forgot to flip a switch. Nothing beats quiet cool mornings on the deck with a cup of coffee. The peacefulness here and the price are worth the extra few miles. Cheaper and quieter than a campground or hotel. Thanks for the great Vacation Todd! We'll be back.
