  • "Superior" in every way

    "Our time at your cabin was wonderful. The week covered the entire gamut of weather.....warm, calm, stormy, windy, cool, sunny , cloudy. Each day was different and dramatic in its own way. Our 16 year old Border Collie acted like a pup again , chasing sticks into the lake and in general, enjoying herself. The "Big Bay Tennis Assn." was most accommodating in the use of the courts they built and asked us to join them in a set of tennis. In addition to day trips to waterfalls, Thomas Lookout and the Huron Mountain Club gateway, we sampled the local cuisine. Lumberjack Bar ice cream was a high point as was Lisa and my good fortune to celebrate our 60th and 70th birthdays at your lovely cabin. Thank you and we hope to be back!"

  • Beautiful U.P. spot!

    "We enjoyed a very relaxing week at your cabin! Comfortable beds, a kitchen with everything you could need, a washer and dryer so we didn't have to pack a lot, a fantastic location and view, woods and animals for my 12 year old adventure seeker to explore, a basketball hoop for my 14 year old who doesn't put the ball down and a comfortable couch and remote for my guy who rarely gets to sit! Your location made it easy to hit all the beautiful spots with an easy drive. We've been using VRBO for a long time and you kept the experience easy. Your home was perfect! Thank You!"

  • Great Place to Relax

    "We stayed the year for the first time and have rebooked for two more weeks. We had a couple of problems in home when we arrived so we called the manager Larry and he took care of everything. Larry made our stay all good, a very nice guy and goes out of his way to help and does it with a smile. The owner was also very responsive to our needs. You will have trouble finding a better place for the money. Not fancy but clean and real nice, great fishing right out front. Thank you Larry"

  • A wonderful week of vacation

    "When we started to plan this year's trip to the US which had to include a visit with old friends on Douglas Lake, south of the Mackinaw bridge, we realized that this would be a chance to spend some days on the UP, an area which was totally unknown to us Swiss. Grand Marais with its proximity to the Pictured Rock National Lakeshore, and also not too far from the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, was soon the choice. Then we found the description of Plover Retreat in the internet and thought: That's it. How right we were. Rental agreement and payment from overseas functioned with the kind support by the local manager. Her directions by e-mail how to drive to the cabin helped us to find it without any problem on a sunny late afternoon and to settle there with ease. It was the start of a marvelous week in which we enjoyed to explore the beautiful and fascinating landscape on Lake Superior by hiking, to learn about the local history and to be at leisure in this wonderful cabin. Its rustic and carefully decorated wooden interior is well arranged and equipped with everything what is needed for a real 'retreat'. It was so peaceful to sit back in one of the comfortable armchairs and to page through the botany and wildlife books from the little cupboard. Even the Webster's rendered its service when we were lost with an American term. In town, we met friendly people who gave us many interesting information about passed days and everyday life in this region. If Plover Retreat wasn't so far away from home we would come back very soon to this neat spot. Well, who knows? A big 'thank you' to the owners for making Plover Retreat available for rent and to the local manager for her perfect administrative Service."
