About April Bertram
My husband and I have been coming up north to Grayling since 1983. We always enjoyed snowmobiling, fishing, and hunting. We wanted to provide a place for people to create their own Northern Memories.
April Bertram purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why April Bertram chose Grayling
We bought this property because we love the AuSable River and the surrounding area. We enjoy nature walks, fly-fishing, snowmobiling and swimming in the spring fed lake Kneff Lake

Better than Advertised!!
So typically, most placed make their listings online look better than they actually are. In this case, we thought it was even better than expected! My wife and I wanted a short get-away up north for our anniversary with our dog. Our dog loved the yard (he's the new tetherball champ). The place was so clean and had almost everything we could think of that we might need - so we way-overpacked (condiments, coffee, blender, etc.. and we laughed when we saw the zester after a previous review complaining they had everything but a zester)! The cinnamon bread waiting for us on the table was amazing and we devoured it quickly, so we took a trip to that bakery on our way home to pick up a few extra loaves. The Jacuzzi was awesome and relaxing after we took our dog for 10+ mile hikes each day in the Hartwick Pines state park and the Mason Tract Pathway. We followed that each day with using the really nice grill for dinner each night followed by s'mores by the fire. It was an awesome time at an awesome place and we highly recommend it to everyone.
Northern Memories is a Hit!
Our stay at this property was as good as it gets. It was clean, well furnished and everything was in perfect working order. The owners, April and Charlie, have given this cabin all the attention that could be expected in a great retreat. Large and small detail gave it that “up north” feel. Pictures on the wall, bear tables by the chairs, birds feeder drawing in all the small birds and squirrels, my lists could go on and on. My favorite was the cabin lamp on the table. Very unique and warmly lit. We are already planning our next stay!
Nice cabin in the Woods
Very nice cabin. About a 10 minute drive from Grayling, so close enough for meals, grocery store, but still secluded and quiet. Visited with my wife and 2 dogs. We used the hot tub almost every day and really enjoyed it. Nice fenced in yard for the dogs. The cabin was stocked with everything needed except food. We brought too much stuff. The bed in the master bedroom was a lot softer than what we are used to and it took a couple nights to adjust. A great experience and we will definitely come back when in the area.
So happy you enjoyed the cabin!
Quiet and clean getaway
I had a small group up for a quick weekend kayak trip down the Mason Tract. The property is in a location that makes it extremely quiet at night. There is a fireplace for cold nights, air for hot nights, and a fire pit outside.
Restaurants in the area are limited and fill up quickly on the weekends, but there is a spacious kitchen to cook your own meals.
Queen bed is comfortable, but the twin beds are not for light sleepers.
Cozy Northern Memories
This cabin was simply perfect!! We will always have a fond place in our hearts for this property ❤ It was very charming and quaint and spotlessly clean. The owners were kind enough to let us bring our very large dogs. That was so important for us to have them with us! The fenced in yard was a godsend. The property was very quiet and secluded. There were neighbors but not close and you could barely see their home through the woods around the yard. The little patio area was perfect and was where we hung out all eve . The supplied wood for evening fires was appreciated. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed as we cooked all of our meals there for the week. We loved the huge indoor jacuzzi tub. The central air along with wifi and the huge tv was just like being at home. We couldn't have asked for more. We made great,lasting memories here and cant wait to return! Thanks to April and her husband for their kindness! Tina-from Brighton MI
We are so happy you made great memories! Hope you can make it back sometime soon!
Thanks April & Charlie
Luxury in the Woods
Northern Memories far exceeded our expectations. It was very spacious, beautifully decorated with fine wooden craftsmanship. The back yard was private yet very large. We made s'mores on the fire in the provided firepit area with the supplied wood. A soak in the jacuzzi tub inside the home each night really melted away the muscles after a day of exploring. The kitchen was large enough for everyone to get what they needed without being in the way and the cabin contained all the comforts of home.
Charlie took the time to talk to me while there to give a few beach recommendations and we went with Kneff lake which is in a national park and less than a mile away. Crystal clear water, even saw a loon. We went to the hatchery,houghton and higgins while there. For food, shop at Fareway (Used to be glens). I also recommend the Dead Bear.. Amazing stay and great hospitality by the owners
Thank you so much for the glowing review! So happy you enjoyed your time at the cabin. Hope you can come again soon.
The cabin is located 1 mile South of Gates Lodge and the beautiful AuSable River. Enjoy wonderful Fly Fishing, Snowmobiling, Hunting. Enjoy the newly remodeled cabin with Jacuzzi, beautiful Knotty-Pine living room.
