  • Quaint and perfect

    "Very quaint and clean rental in a perfect location. We were able to walk to the deserted beach for perfect sunsets and sit at the harbor when the wind came up. Stu was very easy to work with and didn't add all the red tape and fees you usually get with other rentals. This is the perfect place to stay to explore Pictured Rocks National Park and you can walk to Sable Falls along the beach. Very unique weekend...thanks Stu."

  • 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 Snowmobile Vacation

    "We booked a last minute snowmobile vacation in the UP with the lack of snow in SW MI. There were six of us and we chose the East Lake Retreat based on size, location and other reviews. I don't know how we could have made a better selection. The location is secluded and quiet, yet only 10 minutes into town. You could snowmobile right out of the driveway and be on the trails in minutes. There was a large driveway that could easily handle 2-3 snowmobile trailers. Plenty of great little restaurants to select from compared to the "chain" restaurants. The home is perfect just like all the other reviews stated. Everything is very organized and extremely "simple" which is just what most of us need on vacation. Barb was quick to respond and great to deal with. It was a terrific way to bring in the New Year! Thanks Barb for everything!"

  • So impressed!

    "My family planned a last minute trip and this was the only cabin available in Michigamme for the week. We were pleasantly surprised and very impressed by this property! It has a beautiful view of lake Michigamme, is on a quiet road, and is bigger than we expected. We had 8 of us, and not only did we have comfortable beds for all of us, but there was an extra bed, a pull out couch, and an air mattress also available. The kitchen was very well stocked, even had a crock pot! We had a great week lounging in the lake, playing board games, watching movies, sitting around the campfire, and going on walks around the town of Michigamme. I've already recommended this property to several of my friends and my family and I are talking about making this cabin out annual get away! Thanks so much Mark!! :)"
