About the property

Stay in our clean and cozy camp with 2 bedrooms, modern bathroom and kitchen, sunporch and sauna. The perfect place to rest, relax or play in the water!

This is the place to get away and unwind. There is no cable/satellite TV or internet available.. but isn't that the point of going to the lake?

Peace and quiet are found here!

Authentic wood fired barrel sauna, firewood supplied. Experience a true sauna experience by taking steam and cooling off in the world largest fresh water lake!

The camp also features a wood stove in the living room to chase the chill in the shoulder seasons or roast marshmallows on a rainy day!

There is plenty of seating and camp chairs to allow for relaxation on the deck or in the sun porch.

Outdoor fire pit and supplied firewood for evening relaxation and smores around the campfire.

This white sand beach is located on the leeward side of the peninsula making it warmer and more sheltered from the wind. Sunsets are beautiful pastel in color as the light from the West reflects on the clouds over Keweenaw Bay.

Also visible are the Huron Mountians (to the South East) and passing freighters on the way to Marquette or destinations further East.

You will not forget your stay at this peaceful lakeshore location.

This is a nice homey cottage just steps from the beach of Lake Superior.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spot with a small, private, sandy beach on Lake Superior.

Our group was able to travel a short distance to many activities, including climbing Mount Bohemia, touring a copper mine, and visiting the Estivant pines.

We also enjoyed visiting Houghton and Calumet.

We stayed at the cabin for six days, but did not have enough time to explore the whole area.

It was nice to be able to use the wood-fired sauna, with plenty of split wood available to use.

We built fires on the beach, which we contained with rocks we found in the water in front of the cabin.

Our dog, Lola, loved being able to run freely on the beach, and chase her ball into the lake.

Our party of seven slept comfortably. The listing stated that the cabin could sleep nine. However, this would be tight. We brought an extra air mattress, which we did not have to use.

It is important to note that there is no cell signal at the cabin. Although it is nice to unplug, should you need or want to use technology, you will have to drive to Lake Linden.

A full grocery store is also available in Lake Linden, so it would be a good idea to fill your cooler before making your way to the cabin.

It would also be a good idea to bring bug spray.

We are ;looking forward to renting this cabin again in the future. We'd love to bring our family up next time to explore the things we missed the first time.

Nice quiet spot on the east side of the Keeweenaw.

Great quiet spot on the east side of the Keeweenaw. Beach and house were as advertised, except for no bunk beds. Would definitely book again.
