"Wonderful time enjoying our cabin in nature-filled Mio. Robin and Henry were very kind and accommodating. Great prices on the firewood. Fire pit and grill were included with the cabin, and all the basic kitchen necessities. Very fun kayak trip from Parmalee to Mio! Also there’s Amish/Mennonite farms nearby with fresh produce and delicious restaurants in the downtown. Can’t wait to come back!" — Dragana S, Google Review, 5 Star
"Had a great stay at Rainbow Resort the weekend after Memorial Day. The Aspen Cabin was very clean and cozy. We rented a 2 person Old Town kayak on 2 separate days. It was clean and a quality yak. The Clark’s dropped us off and picked us up where we wanted. Definitely recommended and will stay here again." — John P, Facebook Reviews
Our Lady of the Woods Shrine
This mountainous structure, "Our lady of the Woods Shrine" is made of stone honeycomb, with niches and sculptures. Located in Mio, Michigan, Our Lady of the Woods Shrine was envisioned by Fr. Herbert Rakowsky in 1945. He was a newly assigned priest in Mio and asked God to Bless his church. He prayed and envisioned creating the shrine honoring Mary.
"In northern Michigan
Midst the deer and the pine,
Man created a monument
Our Lady of the Woods Shrine.
With heart and with hand
Man molded from stone.
A symbol of His Love,
Reaching towards Mary’s throne.
Four apparitions of Our Lady
To be seen and not forget.
They are the Lourdes,
Fatima, Guadalupe and LaSalette.
There is the Holy Family
and St, Anne DeBeaupre
And patrons of all hunters,
St. Hubert to show the way.
