"Beautiful cabin. It was spotless when we arrived. We were surprised to have close neighbors. Luckily they were not around all week. The lake is very shallow. Had to really search for deeper waters to fish. But we had some fishing success."

"Like one of the other reviewers, I'm almost hesitant to leave a review... it's like giving away a secret family recipe!
We've stayed at the cottage 3 years, and it is one of the highlights of our summer. We go early in the season, do the water is still cold, but the kids enjoy the beach for hours and hours. It's close (by Keweenaw standards anyway) to all the things we love to do. The sunsets are amazing, and the sunrises, too, if you can get up that early! The rates are very reasonable, and the cottage is well appointed for a UP vacation (so don't plan on cable TV and wifi!)."

"Our trip to Big Bay was wonderful. This was the 1st time we vacationed with our two little dogs and enjoyed watching them frolic on the beach. We rented a kayak from the area outfitter and had a blast on the bay every day. The cabin was really well stocked, from bottled water, to an assortment of spices to extras in the bathroom to really comfortable beds. We only vacation thru VRBO and this cabin was a find. There's no air conditioning, but Carol provides fans and ceiling fans that cool the cabin pretty well. The deck was nice, but sits under a pine tree that drips sap constantly (kind of irritating but not enough to put a damper on anything). We had a fire on the beach every day and spent most of the time outside in the great UP. Learned some history about Big Bay and were lucky to be at the cabin on the 1st night for the annual Big Bay fireworks show. Let me tell you...wow! The fireworks are launched right down the beach and the you are front and center for a great show! Sand, sand, sand everywhere, but what's a beach vacation without it. We had a scary schedule mix up, but Carol was able to move things around and things worked out fine. The only thing that I think needs addressed is a sliding screen door on the slider going out to the deck. The flies were huge, huge pests and a screen door would have helped greatly. Thank you Carol for opening your cottage to weary travelers like us and keeping the cottage stocked and organized. Your hospitality is what VRBO renters like us look for and end up returning for. Thanks again, Brian, Mara and Madi (and Ralphie and Milo too)."

"We stayed for a week at this lovely home on a family vacation. We have traveled extensively and rented many homes for our vacations. What stands out about this property to me was the quality of all the furnishing. The cedar inside and out is well maintained and gorgeous. The furniture is high quality and not dated. The home is very nicely decorated. We spent a great deal on time on the extensive deck both day and night. Patio furniture is better quality then I have in my own home. The hot tub was a huge hit as was the stone fireplace on the deck. The bedrooms where cozy and the beds good. Only one bathroom so be prepared. Lots of extras where included (firestarters, grill, washer and dryer, firewood, spices, etc.) This property is worth every penny. We had no complaints whatsoever with this home. Owners are very nice people and accommodating as we had some family issue that required rescheduling. They went above and beyond what was required of them to make our changes work. Everyone in my family (wife, 2 daughters and in laws) all agreed this was a very relaxing place to stay. Oh and the dock is awesome too. We spend a great deal of time just sitting, fishing and watching the eagles. Would love to return during walleye primetime."
