  • Ski vacation

    "The Wildernest provided the perfect setting for our yearly family ski vacation. The large, open kitchen/ living space kept everyone together for meals, games and movies while the bedroom layout gave us privacy when we needed it. There were 4 generations staying together, from 2 to 87 years of age and all agreed the Wildernest was the best place possible. We will go back next year!"

  • PERFECT Family Getaway Home!

    "This was our first time renting a vacation home. We needed a place to stay on our way up to Michigan Tech. After reading online reviews of other vacation homes, we decided to take a chance on Cool Water Shores. When we arrived to the home, we couldn't believe what we saw. Deer greeted us as we got out of the vehicle. What a perfect way to start our trip! As we entered the home, you immediately look straight through the home onto the lake. The owners of this home knew exactly what to do to capture the beauty of the area. The gigantic bay windows allow for deer viewing in the backyard every morning and evening. This home had everything you could ever need or want. I loved being able to relax and not have to worry about anything. Throughout the reservation process, anytime I called the owner, Doug, he displayed excellent customer service skills and always made me feel comfortable. I would recommend this home to all my friends and family. Thank you Cool Water Shores for making this Illinois family feel so welcomed! **Info for future vacationers** Since we were there at a bad time of year, there wasn't much to do outside and not much going on in other towns. In fact, we ate at JW's BBQ (which was AMAZING!) and they said it was their last day of operation for the season. If you plan on a Lake Gogebic vacation March-April, make sure you contact all the places you want to visit to verify they will be open."

  • Perfect 20th Anniversary Trip

    "We stayed an entire week in this beautiful cabin in the UP of Michigan. The cabin was well equipped with everything to make your stay easy and enjoyable. Kitchen is well stocked, gas grill is ready and waiting, the pellet stove is up for its important job and the decor makes you feel right at home. Mary Jean answered our emails in a timely manner and even though our deposit checks "went missing", she was very patient and understanding. There was a folder with all the pertinent info one could need on the area "goings on". We used a blue pamphlet to make sure to hit all the big sights and many waterfalls in the area (we always had this with us). The day trips looking for waterfall after waterfall were the best. This area is a GREAT place to Geocache. I think we found 28 caches on this trip. The most ever in such a short amount of time (we usually have our teens with us and it's usually them actually locating the caches - it's sooo much fun being the 'finder' and not the 'secretary' documenting the finds). The hot tub is great and always makes returning after a long day knowing that's waiting. We didn't have enough time to enjoy the lake right there at the cabin. Our day trips kept us busy and when we were at the cabin, the chilly air and winds kept us inside by the stove. There's so much left to do up there and I think a 2 week visit would be ideal. We want to return again ASAP and thinking about leaving the teens at home once again. The cell service is nil but you know that from the get go since Mary Jean made sure to inform us of that ahead of time. The cabin does have WI-Fi and when we were at the cabin, my husband was able to keep in contact with other family members who had iPhones. There's too much more to tell you and you will need to take my word for it when I say this is the perfect cabin to stay at. Thank you Ed and Mary Jean for sharing your family home with us. We'd love to return next year."

  • Perfect Cabin

    "My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in October. It was perfect. The cabin was fully stocked and everything was very clean and nice, especially the kitchen. Dale was very helpful with the few issues we had and was quick to answer a call or text. We took the boat out on the lake and went sight seeing all around the UP. It is a beautiful area. We both hope to be able to come back and stay in this cabin again."
