Our secluded riverfront cabin has been completely remodeled and is available for you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of “The Promised Land”. Enjoy the solitude of no visible neighbors yet only minutes from downtown East Jordan where you can enjoy fresh local coffee, a delicious breakfast or some of the best soft serve ice cream Northern Michigan has to offer. Enjoy fantastic fishing out your front door, have a fire inside or out, or just relax to the sounds of the magnificent Jordan River.
Built from a kit in 1955 and remodeled in 2021, The Promised Land in EJ is an experience unlike no other. Located on the banks of the Jordan River, you will find solitude among the trees and wildlife. River otters, muskrats, deer, ducks, and various birds wander along the banks of the river as you sip your Michigan-made coffee on the three-season porch. Our pet-friendly cabin allows you and your family the opportunity to leave your stress behind. Many of the original parts of The Promised Land remain. Once inside, you will see the original front door that has been transformed into the bathroom door, hand-hewn beams, and a three-sided fireplace that allows the cabin to glow. A loft with twin logs beds will give your children or guests a cozy place to relax, read, color, or watch TV. Many items in our cabin are a mix of our families’ histories as well as updates. For example, the overhead light is created from a grandfather’s oars, the front porch was screened by a grandfather and great-grandfather, and the original log banister spells out PL on the porch.
