Fernside is a lovingly constructed A-Frame, which rests on the banks of the Sturgeon River, in the charming town of Indian River, Michigan. Nestled in a blanket of trees, it blends both seclusion and companionship. As dawn turns to daybreak, there’s nothing more pleasant than being drawn from slumber by the sun light springing through open windows and the sound of gushing water echoing through each surface of the property. In my estimation, there is no more serene place on earth than Fernside.

The space
Fernside is a synthesis of both modern and classic, fully realized with the assistance of Lake Street Design Studio. The open floor plan and a wall of windows keeps light in during the day, casting halos above the cabin, while at night it erases the division between inside and out, giving you the feeling of floating amongst the stars. The expansive night sky is especially clear on our deck, which hugs the river from above. Wildlife greets you each morning. Sometimes fish can be seen leaping from the water.
Our fire pit is perfect for lighting the way during dinners under the stars, created using our fully equipped kitchen or our BBQ. Take time to lay in the river, or on a tube tied to our tree, and after, use all the modern creature comforts we have in the house, such as central heating, A/C, or wifi.


Fernside sleeps 4 comfortably with a bedroom on the main floor and another in the loft. Great for couples, a small family (not suitable for children under 12) or group of friends. Max 4 persons at any time.

Guest access
Guests have access to the whole house and property.

Other things to note
The cabin is located on a 2 lane dirt road. There are no street lights so it will be dark if you're arriving in the evening. We have motion lights at the entrance and along the driveway. There is no TV, this is a place to disconnect. We are rural and wifi is slow, recommend downloading movies or shows before arriving. Surveillance camera facing the driveway. Monitored so guests adhere to 4 guest policy.

Location

Indian River, Michigan, United States

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood along the Sturgeon River. The wooded lots on all sides of the house provide a very private setting. During the summer tubers and kayakers float down the river past the house regularly.

A midwestern transplant now living in San Francisco, I’m an artist who owns my own business and look for any reason to abscond up north to my own cabin in the woods and I am excited to share it with you! My favorite adventure is exploring new cities/towns and seeing how the locals live. I am always searching for great restaurants and bars and experiences that I've never had before.
