Welcome to the Schoolmaster's Hideaway! This little apartment sits nestled in the Cedar River valley. Escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a few nights of serenity. We run a retreat center of family vacation rentals - there are 4 other rentals, but you will find with 120 acres, there is plenty of space for everyone! We host a variety of different rentals - to get a better idea of our property, check out!

The space
You will have access to our property which features a volleyball court, pavilion (indoor basketball), a playground complete with an ark, 18 hole frisbee golf, and other amenities! In the winter we have snowshoes, cross-country skis, sleds, and tubes available free of charge. There are several hills on the farm that are prime for sledding.

I love traveling and pop culture! My favorite location to date has been the UK and Ireland, but Northern Michigan is my home! Catch me exploring nature or watching every movie known to humanity. Secretly hoping that Netflix will hire me to review all of their Originals. I manage our Airbnb listing and our other rentals with my parents - this is our first to list on Airbnb. We are hoping to eventually post all of them! We try not to interfere with our guests stay, unless you absolutely need us or would like a tour of the farm!
