  • Everything you need and more in a perfect place by the lake

    "The place is in 100 per cent. accordance with the description, but in reality the cottage is even better. The owners Ted and Lynn live nearby and were most friendly, although we did not need them because everything was in mint condition. When we arrived (early fall chill), the fully automated wood-pellet stove had already warmed up the cottage. A rowboat complete with lifevests lay ashore to our disposition, it is a nice lake to row about (we do not fish, but people do, mostly from slow pontoons). The nice pier should be good for swimming in shallow clear water - in summer, that is. The house is very well maintained and has all the works, flat TV, coffeemaker, four-flame gas stove, outside barbecue, you name it...we did not miss anything and found more stuff than we needed. I would highly recommend this vacation home to all those seeking nature by the water. Secluded as it is, the drive to the Michigan Highway 35 is 2.5 mi gravel and then 10 min to Gwinn (there is a completely stocked supermarket in town) or 35 min to Marquette (24hrs Walmart). We cooked every night (BBQ), but in Little Lake (5 min) there is The Throttle, a no-nonsense bar and restaurant. This being the UP, there are NO "nearby" attractions apart from Gwinn itself (Model Town, quite unique), but for example Pictured Rocks is 1 hour away, the Iron Ore Heritage Bike Trail (very well maintained) is 40 min, Keewenaw is 2 hours away. If it were not so far from home, we would love to repeat in the near future!"

  • Perfect, peaceful family vacation

    "We are staying at Saint's Rest this week, but I couldn't wait to write a review! Communication and arranging our stay with Robert, the homeowner, was excellent-- professional, friendly, and helpful. We arrived to a wonderfully kept, immaculately clean, cozy yet spacious beach house with everything we could possibly need--well stocked kitchen, laundry facilities, linens...all the details. We are close enough to town for nice bike rides to take the kids to the park or the children's museum. But the beach...the sights and sounds of Lake Superior...that VIEW! This has been by far the most marvelous part of our trip. Kayak excursions, swimming, sand castles, beach fires, leisurely walks...just steps from the porch. It's really helped our boys reconnect with nature and their imaginations and exploration...and given mom and dad some time to just REST and enjoy! Thanks so much!!"

  • Relaxing!

    "This was the perfect location and time of year for a long overdue family decompression! Even though the fishing wasn't that stellar the different wildlife and most awesome fall colors more than made up for that! We would like to thank Jim and his family for sharing their lake house with us. We saw a flock of wild turkeys wander through the front yard. A wolf and black bear, deer, the 2 loons and most adorable lake otter who was a ham! We came back refreshed and with many colorful photos! We are very grateful!"

  • Soooo much better than a motel!!!!!

    "We were in Marquette for the UP 200 sled dog race...we have been attending for approx. 15 years now and have always stayed in a motel. We decided to check out VRBO this year for something different...soooo glad we did! The house was perfect...especially considering we had blizzard conditions all day Saturday and were unable to drive even one block away without turning around and coming back due to white-out. Instead, we hunkered down and enjoyed a day of games and movies together with plenty of room to relax and fix meals. Thank you so much for a beautiful place to stay...we will definitely do this again!"
