Recent Upper Peninsula reviews

  • 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."

  • Awesome Honeymoon at the Great Escape!

    "My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Grand Marais and we stayed at the Great Escape. We absolutely loved everything about it! We loved the location, the cozy atmosphere of the place, and the cleanliness of the cottage when we arrived. Sure, it was pretty chilly during the time we were there (it actually snowed our last full day there!), but we still had a great time looking for Agates on the beach and sitting by the little fireplace, sipping tea and coffee. We definitely plan on returning to the Great Escape (maybe when the weather is a little bit warmer), it is definitely a gem in the beautiful U.P.!"

  • Wonderful!!

    "We had our family reunion with 15 people at this magical location and loved everything about it. There was way more room than we needed (only used 3 of the 4 houses) and loved the space to spread out. The beach was great for the kids and the nearby sauna made the cold water easy to tolerate. The facilities were fantastic with a huge, well-stocked kitchen, a nice wood-burning stove, and large dining area where we could all eat together. Julie was very easy to work with and was always available if we needed anything. Highly recommend this wonderful, hidden getaway!!"

  • What a great find!

    "My friend and I spent a week at Camp Corinna and it was wonderful. The cabin is quaint and has been tastefully decorated and updated. The owner did a great job with the video so there were not surprises. It was clean and comfortable with great views of Lake Superior. The trees, flowers and rocks provided so much privacy we hardly knew anyone else lived on the road. The owner is great to work with -- answers questions promptly and is very helpful. Camp Corinna is in a perfect location for trips to Pictured Rocks, Marquette, and other sites in the area, but it's also just a great place for a retreat. We are already talking about going back."

You will feel as if you are on the ocean side, without the salt that irritates the skin and stings the eyes. The sand is fine, soft, and deep.
