GRAYLING – Finley’s Riverside Cabins were recently named the Grayling Area Chamber of Commerce ‘Spotlight on Business’ nominee.
Purchased in 2017 by Phil and Brenda Chilcote, the cabins have been rehabilitated. Phil, a retired contractor from Muskegon, put his building expertise and handiwork into the project. These historic cabins feature everything from completely new plumbing and windows to hand hewn cedar beds with a distinctly Northern Michigan feel.
Situated on 16 wooded acres with 1,000 feet of private AuSable River frontage on the famed “stump pond,” it’s within walking distance of snowmobile trailheads, cross-country ski trails, snowshoeing paths and fat tire and mountain bike courses.
Phil and Brenda live on-site, enjoying the views and taking the grandkids for walks on the river.
“In our wildest dreams we never thought we would be managing cabin rentals in our retirement years, but now that we are, we love it,” Brenda said. “We’re thrilled we get to do it in a community like Grayling when we can share our love of the outdoors and spend our spare time fishing.”
Finley’ Riverside Cabins is located at 5973 West M-72, one door east of Northbound Outfitters. For information call 989-745-6673 or visit finleyriversidecabins.com.
