  • Lovely cottage, lovely vacation spot, no worries!

    "We rented the cottage for our son's graduation from Michigan Tech. We found it to be a little slice of heaven. As other's have said, well equiped, clean, comfortable, & the beach was amazing. Even though we were early in the season we took walks on the beach, saw no one but ourselves, it was incredible. Good advice to pick up your groceries on the way there. Bottled water is not a must, but you may be happier with it if you are fussy at all. If you arrive late, in the dark, as we did, yes keep going even when the road snakes among trees you are getting close! After driving though the U.P. with the cell phone constantly searching for service, my cell battery died before arriving. The house number/address, directions, and contact info were in the now useless phone. We still found the place from my memory of reading the email. It is set nearer to the road than others, & very easy to find even in the dark. After staying there once, we'd love to return. Thank you Todd and Kathleen for sharing your cottage with us."

  • Great Easter get away

    "Can't say enough how wonderful this place was. We were looking for a place to stay with our daughters and their husbands and this fit the bill. All having attended college at MTU and NMU, this was a great location for them to relive memories of the college days and for us all to be together. We cooked great meals in the kitchen and on the grill. House offered us everything we were looking for. The kids have stated they will be back!"

  • Perfect

    "My family has stayed at this cabin the past couple summers for a week each time. This cabin is the perfect place to unwind and relax. You feel like you have the beach to yourself as there is no other cabins directly next to them. The cabin has a cozy feel and it nicely decorated for that "beach" feel and all the amenities are up to date and clean. My daughter loved the nightly sauna each after a full day of playing on the beach, picking blue berries, and hiking. There were many days of seeing bald eagles soaring over the bay looking for fish. The location of the cabin is great. "Town" is about 20 minutes away and there is a great small town ice cream shop there when a treat was needed and there are also plenty of locally owned restaurants with that small town feel. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone that wants to get away from the busy daily life and unwind and relax. We look forward to going back this year. It is clear the owners take pride in the cabin and we thank them for letting us use it."

  • Michigan Tech Mom / Family

    "Arrival date is not correct wouldn't let me go back to far, I am late to write this , we stayed here about 2 1/2 years ago when we moved my son up to Tech for his first year in College, and what a wonderful place to be, There were 8 of us all together and we had a great time, we played on the water with the paddle boat and kayak and just had a blast, Mornings out on the porch were so peaceful seen the eagle each morning up in the tree what a sight, There is Plenty of room here for a family and so much to do, the accommodations were very well met, pots and pans, linens everything you could think of, Comfortable beds for sleeping, we saved a lot by cooking our meals rather then going out to eat every meal having that home feeling made all that possible. We are excited to come back and stay in the winter this time so we can enjoy winter activities and views in Houghton. Pat your place is beautiful and we were so glad to be able to enjoy it. Highly recommend staying here if you are looking for the R & R in your visit, Not far from town and stores very convenient location"
