If you are looking for the perfect little cabin/retreat less than 45 minutes from Grand Rapids, this is it. Owners have taken this down to the studs, and added new windows, doors, flooring, kitchen, bath and furnace (see attached detailed renovation list). On top of that, you're sitting on top of the bluff overlooking your own 150 ft. of frontage on the Little Manistee River for you own pleasure. Home needs some finishing touches, but all of the hard work has been completed. There's also, stepsthat lead to an open upper loft area giving you additional sleeping or living space. nook for coats and shoes. From the entry, you can easily climb the ship-stairs to the 140 square foot loft with double-hung window and skylight. Attic access on either side of the loft provides storage room. On the main level, the living area is open to the kitchen and features a reclaimed wood wall with TV hookups. The kitchen includes a pantry under the stairs, refrigerator nook, and space for a dishwasher. From the kitchen, you can access the bedroom, suitable for a king-sized bed. The full bathroom is accessible from both the entry and bedroom and includes space for a closet organizer or built-ins. Structurally, the owners have taken this cabin to the studs in 2018 and made it ready for year-round living. All work was permitted and inspected. The ceiling is sealed and insulated with spray-foam, while the walls have both fiberglass and rigid foam insulation with new sheathing and vinyl siding that's mostly complete. Windows were reconfigured to take advantage of the river view, and new entry and French doors were installed along with detached decks. The electric system is completely new and features a 200 amp panel with whole-house surge suppression, generator hook-up, and ample circuits including a 50-amp RV outlet. Plumbing was added for washer / dryer and dishwasher hook-ups, and an electric tankless water heater was installed for space and energy efficiency.

Finishes include Pergo Outlast+ laminate flooring, and valspar Ultra paint throughout. Custom oak cabinets in the kitchen provide storage and support the double-bin stainless steel apron sink.
