Grass Creek Yurt
Spectacular mountain scenery in a quiet, isolated valley make the Grass Creek Yurt a favorite. Nearby North Michigan Reservoir and Michigan River offer excellent fishing, it's a great basecamp for mountain bike riding, and in winter it offers a gentle terrain for novice skiers - with a few challenges on nearby Gould Mountain!
Please check the weather and road conditions on the resources page for the most up to date information before your stay.
Pets are permitted at all Never Summer Yurts only from June-September.
