Grand Marais cabin description

*Wake up to the sound of Whippoorwills in this secluded U.P. log cabin tucked away from absolutely everyone on a trophy size 'brook trout' lake and small mouth bass has just been added!

Come here for the best get-a-way the U.P. has to offer with an incredible price! About 1.5 hours from ‘da big Mac Bridge connecting Michigan's 2 Peninsulas. ...........
People tell us that we don't describe this cabin well enough. So here is our best: 'SOLITUDE ROCKS!! Hear what silence really sounds like. Read our reviews!
No people, no regrets, just perfect solitude! This cabin is the only place on the lake and for miles around!( there is a small hut nearby but rarely does anyone come there, and sometimes people may fish the lake or drive ATV's by) Sit on the sandy beach all by yourself and listen to the loons or watch the brookies jump for a fly with a backdrop of a blazing sunset. Put out the camp fire and crawl into bed with fresh, pure cotton sheets... one's going to bug you, no phone calls, no hassles.... all day long.

You could just push the row boat or canoe into the water and try your luck at our trophy size brook trout, (hard to catch) or some perch (easy to catch).

Maybe spend a day in Grand Marais and fish the pier for lake trout or just go play on the shoreline of Lake Superior and hunt for pretty stones & agates. Don't forget to try some speciality beers and great food while you are in town and go shopping in their little shops.
You could drive into Seney for a hamburger or a great meal at the local restaurant, but you decide to enjoy your own on the grill, inside the screened-in porch sitting in a rocking chair or in a swing over looking the lake with your nose in a good book.. It is your choice. It is time to drop everything and get away from it all.

With fabulous sunsets around a bonfire, you can watch deer swim near and hear the night sounds under the starry sky! The cabin is centered within easy driving distance to most U.P. tourist attractions including Pictured Rocks, many water falls, Mackinac Island, Soo Locks, Seney Wildlife Preserve, White Fish Point, the Two-Hearted River, and numberous Light-Houses.

3 bedrooms, sleeps 6 comfortably. Large mosquito-free screened porch, sandy beach, clear spring-fed lake great for swimming. There is a row boat and canoe on site with life jackets. It is the only cabin on the lake, (a small hut is nearby, but rarely does anyone come there) and for miles with nothing but trails, trails and more trails leading all over the Upper Peninsula.

The famous Seney national Wildlife Refuge (20 minutes) is a great place to spend a day hiking, canoeing, and animal watching. ATV rentals are in Seney if you are seeking adventure and exploration on all the trails surrounding the cabin. Grand Marais with it's speciality restaurants, is 20 minutes away with Lake Superior shoreline awaiting the agate rock hounds, sun-bathers, and boaters.

This is a vacation designation for families, honeymooners, couples, fishermen, hunters, families,or just about anyone wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The six mile long driveable trail to this cabin can be confusing at night, so please plan on coming in the daytime and enjoy the wilderness scenery on your way in.

The cabin is set up like a motor home with an easy inside push start button for the outside generator. All modern appliances for your convenience. With many returning guests your vacation promises to be one of the U P's Best. Clean & Affordable.

* Wild Blueberries near this cabin- July-August - September (Pick in morning for pancakes.)
