Betsie River Retreat for 10
Get away from it all at Hidden River Cabin, a family retreat tucked away on 2.5 acres of quiet forest at the end of a private road, along the banks of the Betsie River, and surrounded by the Betsie River State Game Refuge. The Betsie is a protected Natural River, which limits development and preserves the natural beauty, and you will have 330 feet of natural frontage and private dock all to yourself. The river is shallow and gentle with a sandy bottom, great for big kids to play in (averages 2-4 feet deep), and deep enough for leisurely kayak trips in the two tandem kayaks provided (each seats 2 adults + 1 child). An assortment of life vests are available for toddler through adult.

The river will take you to the east end of the Betsie Bay, Frankfort and Elberta (2 hour float or 1 hour paddle), or all the way to Lake Michigan for the more ambitious paddlers. For the fishermen in the family, fall heralds the arrival of the king salmon run (starting as early as mid-August) with winter and spring bringing in the steelhead trout. Use the portable fish cleaning table and the grill/smoker to cook your catch for dinner, or take them to the Port City Smokehouse for the best smoked fish or pate you've ever had! Watch their Facebook page for tournaments and fishing news.

Hidden River Cabin is just a few minutes from the beautiful pristine beaches at Frankfort and Crystal Lake, and just 30 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dunes. There is a family-sized folding shade tent, lots of sand toys, and plenty of folding chairs that you can take along with you on your beach outings.

Use the bikes to explore the adjacent 22 mile Betsie Valley Trail, which connects Frankfort, Beulah and Thompsonville, passing by some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. The cabin has a variety of adult and kid sized rides - just bring your helmets!  Enjoy the volleyball and badminton set, bocce set, stomp rockets, s'mores around the firepit, and numerous other activities. Explore the forest, play in the river, or just curl up with a good book!

They were very responsive, friendly, and gave us a lot of confidence that it would be a good rental experience.

One of the nicest things about the Hidden River cabin (I think that's what it's called?) is the quietness of the spot. It feels more remote than it actually is - great for people who appreciate the solitude but also the easy access to groceries and occasional entertainment.
