It occurred to me that I never gave you feedback to our stay at Eagle’s Rest:
Everything worked out just fine and even better than we expected – we found our way on our bikes easily to the cabin. Upon arrival I was looking all over the place for the keys as described in your directions, however, could not find them. Until my husband checked the door and it was unlocked. A pleasant surprise.
The cabin is very well equipped and we found everything we needed and more. We greatly enjoyed the outdoor shower and hope that you will still leave it as an option to the beautiful bathroom you are building. We slept in on our last day and proceeded to start cooking a wonderful breakfast with some ingredients we bought on our bike trip to the village. On the second day vacation mode set in and we relaxed completely – a good thing – however, I was not aware, although stipulated in your lease – that we had to leave at 10 am sharp as I mentioned in my email that we will take the afternoon ferry back to the mainland. I just came out of the shower as your friendly neighbor knocked on the door shortly before 10 am. We had to abandon the cabin in a hurry, packing up the half-cooked breakfast and leave. Oh well, a quick farewell to this most gorgeous place you own. I guess in such a remote place, far away from civilization (so it feels) we did not realize that time still is passing quickly …
We left the island after a great experience “downtown” watching the 4th of July parade rolling through the village twice and meeting many kind and genuine friendly folks.
Enjoy your summer and wishing you good luck with your final touches on your very professionally done remodeling job.

"Our family stayed at this charming cottage in August. We had the best time yet! It was relaxing and so much fun to spend time with our kids without all of the distractions. Enjoyed seeing the bald eagle and sandhill cranes. We picked wild blueberries and made pies which my husband loved! Everyone loved the sauna! The beach is incredible and the scenery amazing! Loved kayaking to see the beautiful cliffs! The cottage is well stocked with everything you need. There are also many thoughtful touches as well. I would highly recommend staying here!"

"Our 4 adults and puppy were so comfortable during our July week-long stay. Cabin was extremely clean and cozy. Did not need the loft beds which was good since it was sunny every day with temps in high 70's to mid 80's so the loft got quite warm by evening. Fans in each room and cool nights made for great sleeping. Thoroughly enjoyed the sand, sauna, and sunrises. Had everything needed to cook and grill at the cabin. Just minutes to our family, friends, and shopping....also to our favorite eating spots in Houghton (Suomi Restaurant for the best pasties and Finnish nissu and the Ambassador for pizza), and a return visit to the majestic Estevant Pines near Copper Harbor. The owners promptly responded to my calls and emails and were a pleasure to meet on our arrival."

"We had a relaxing retreat at Enswell Cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully appointed cabin. Everything we needed was there. The manager was very responsive, easy to communicate with and a pleasure to work with. The wood-working and craftsmanship of the cabin is amazing to behold. The week we were there, the weather was not the greatest, but it was not a problem because we were so comfortable. So, thanks Nikki and Buzz for the opportunity to stay at this lovely property."
