Recent Upper Peninsula reviews

  • Low Tech/High Relaxation

    "My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I spent a totally relaxing week in this roomy vacation home located off the beaten path on Farmers Lake. It is the perfect getaway from the rush and frenzy of the real world. You can fish right from the dock or take the fishing boat out to catch walleye, northern pike and bass. Enjoy the sauna or relax in the screened-in free-standing "porch". There is a full service grocery store and pharmacy five minutes away if you need them. The charming town of Marquette, located on Lake Superior, is a half an hour away and offers restaurants, shops, a Nautical Museum and a Lighthouse Tour. If you're looking to unwind and get away from it all this is definitely the place for you!"

  • Perfect Family Getaway

    "My husband and I wanted a relaxing vacation this year with our two small children. We found this little jewel on Little Bay De Noc. I was immediately impressed with how quickly the owner contacted me. He was very nice, friendly and organized. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. The view from the living room and kitchen was breathing taking and the sunsets were even better. The beach was nice and sandy, which is was perfect for the kids. The days and nice were quiet and relaxing. We had a few bond fires and watched the stars. Upon arrival, there was a nice little book that had flyers and recommendations for food to activities. This helped us during the week to plan what we wanted to do! We would stay at Camp Hawker again without hesitation!"

  • Perfect vacation home

    "This was the perfect vacation home for us! We felt very comfortable and at home here. We hated to leave! This was the perfect location, between L'anse, Houghton, Chassell and Pelkie. Everything was clean and fresh and exactly as pictured. There were plenty of towels and bedding, dishes, etc. We wanted for nothing! We slept like babies! Can't say enough good things about this place. We definitely recommend it, and are trying to find a reason to travel to the U.P. again next summer so we can stay here again."

  • Wildernest Chalet

    "Our vacation to the Wildernest was fabulous. The place was very neat and clean. The pictures do not due it justice. The views from the living room are beautiful. Our kids really enjoyed playing outside, besides the great location to the ski hills. The owner was great at making sure everything was perfect for our stay. We stayed in the upper unit with another family; the layout was perfect, plenty of space. What a nice get away. We will be back. Thank you!"
