Everybody needs a getaway! In the heart of the Manistee National Forest is the perfect quiet "getaway". Whether you are looking for an adventure, family or romantic getaway - this house has everything you need. Come enjoy the peaceful serenity of the forest and Seaton Creek. Close to hiking trails, ski resorts and the lakeshore. Sit in the gazebo and read or rest while listening to the babbling creek next to you. Beautiful space to relax, seek out adventure and enjoy those you love most.
Minimalistic tranquil space designed to help people reconnect with themselves, nature and loved ones. This is a very cozy home with two large bedrooms, full kitchen as well as living and dining space. This home is right on Seaton Creek. The house comes with five acres of land and is connected to both the Northern Michigan Retreat (home right next door to the west on ten acres) and adjoins to thousands of acres of the Manistee National Forest. You can be as unplugged as you wish here. Listen to the creek, go for a long hike, take a nap or enjoy the company of your loved ones. Please make yourself right at home. You will have everything you need. All you have to bring is personal items and food. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers and families. There is no wifi and signal can be slight.

My name is Jen! I have lived in and loved Michigan my entire life. Northern Michigan has always had a very special place in my heart. I am a family nurse practitioner by trade. My most favorite job is mother to two amazing teenage sons. My husband, boys and I live on 65 acres in southwest Michigan. I just recently ventured into the Airbnb world after purchasing a home and land right next to a dear friend of mine who has ten acres and a beautiful home. She also rents out her home on Airbnb. So together we have two homes available and fifteen acres. Her place is called Northern Michigan Retreat and my place is called Seaton Creek Getaway. Amanda and I are both advanced practice providers and very much recognize the importance of a low stress, high vibration, nature filled environment. Our homes offer a nurturing, calm and restful place for people to reset and restore. Helping people return to the best version of themselves is what I love the most. If I could best describe myself I would say I am at heart a seeker, lover, healer, teacher and explorer.
