We are yearly visitors to the quaint cabins! We love the river, the lovely cabin, the location, and Jim and his great staff. Each year we relax and enjoy the quiet! If you like the rustic outdoors with some creature comforts, you will be pleased!

These are log cabins. Do not expect a Hilton experience. Some windows lack curtains. Good value. Great in town, on the river location. You will feel like you stepped back in time. Friendly owner. Grayling has limited dining options, BTW.

Those little log cabins right beside the Au Sable River - convenient, romantic, practical, cozy, and BEAUTIFUL area. We could walk or ride bikes to town for meals, shopping, browsing, etc. Canoeing on the Au Sable is being on the Gem Of The North. Best river in the state - bar none! Penrod's rents bikes, canoes, and kayaks. Couldn't be... More

Stayed two nights in cabin #9. Cabin was very well maintained, bathroom had recently been remodeled. We are normally Holiday Inn Express kind of people, but were very happy that we decided to give Penrods a chance. Great water pressure in the shower, must be on city water as there was no well water smell or taste to the water.... More

My family of four (teens age 14 & 16) stayed at Penrods this summer for two nights. This trip makes it #5 for me and my husband. We enjoyed their two person cabins early on and have visited twice with the kids staying in the family cabins. Over the span of 20 years, we have enjoyed all of our visits... More

Unknowingly we arrived in Grayling on the Au Sable River Marathon weekend. We wanted to take a lazy canoe trip on the river, but got to Penrod's just as the time trials we to start. Penrod's helped us get on the river fast and helped us avoid the crush of people. Equipment was in good order and we had a... More

We recently spent one night in a cabin at Penrod's on the Au Sable River. They have about 8 cabins to rent, some with kitchens (as in rustic), some without. We had a one double bed cabin with kitchen. The cabins are well maintained and very clean. They are log cabins, of course, built in the 30's or 50's. The... More
