    Great location, very nice cabin. Everything anyone could need for a relaxed stay is contained within. Very clean and well kept.

    They are so kind and accommodating and polite! I loved this place! My kids thought it was small but for our needs it was great! We’re short though, so if you’re tall good luck showering comfortably lol. But it was great and the pool is nice too!

Company info

Yes, we’re originally from Texas… Indeed, it is pretty cold up here in NW Michigan, but let us regale you with tales of 110 degree August days & skin scorched by the vinyl of your driver’s seat! We went from barbecue and Mexican food to pasties & Boston Coolers, Longhorn and Aggie football to UofM & Michigan State, Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughn to Motown & Eminem, but we’re happy to be here. Luckily Chris spent his freshman year of college on the Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior, so snow isn’t a completely foreign concept to us… but as Michigan-native friend wryly proclaimed, “It’s not- Have you spent A winter up north, it’s- Have you spent TEN winters up north?” Chris grew up camping, & we both love to travel/camp/hike, & enjoy nature. Chris’ grandfather ran a canoe rental business on the Brazos River in TX all of his childhood, so when Barb & John Hanmer made the Riverside Resort available we felt it was the place for us. So, “howdy” (most Texans don’t really say that much, but it’s expected I guess). Welcome to BRR! -Chris & Misti Rasure
