"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."

"For our first visit to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, we wanted both a central location for sightseeing and a home on Lake Superior. This home was that and even more. It was close to Picture Rocks, Munising restaurants and Marquette. If you love beautiful scenery, exploring, high end accommodations and the tranquility of the lake then this home is all you could possibly want! We highly recommend Log Home on the Lake for it's cleanliness and attention to quality as well a the helpfulness of the owners Carolyn and Randy."

"Our family of 6 stayed a few days at this perfect chateau. Even though the weather did not cooperate with us we enjoyed every minute of our stay! We did not get to enjoy the many decks however the fireplace was a wonderful, warm trade off - with an over abundance of wood.
All rooms were exactly as pictured. Spotlessly clean and fresh. There were more than enough towels and linens. Wonderfully comfortable beds.
The modern kitchen was a real treat.....better than home! All appliances were beautiful and additional small appliances came in very handy.
The Soedings were very enjoyable hosts to work with. A very sweet couple.
Oh and the view....what can I say??!! The view! Exactly what we were looking for!
We also ventured out on a couple road trips in the area. Beautiful. Hit the fall colors about perfect timing.
