Why Shaundra Paasch chose Ishpeming

This property was built at the turn of the 20th century by the nearby Atlantic Mining company. It has been well cared for and is now completely modernized, with the exception of a few door handles.

What makes this house unique

This house is close to everything in the Upper Peninsula! Ishpeming has everything a person might need to include grocery and hardware store. And it is within ten minutes of the biggest town in the upper peninsula, Marquette. Northern Michigan University is also only 10 minutes away. Home is close to lakes and rivers for fishing and forest areas with trails for hiking and bird watching.

Convenient and Clean!

We enjoyed our stay here! It was very clean a lot of space and the owner was easy to get in contact with! It was in a good location to travel back and forth to different landmarks. The neighborhood was also very quiet. We will definitely book again!

Well maintained!

  • 4 of 5

We would have given a 5 star rating if it had A/C. Otherwise it had everything we needed! It was so nice to stay in a house and not a motel. We were able to have company and it was comfortable. We hope to stay there again when we visit Ishpeming!

A perfect place in a really nice town

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay for just one night, and found that most places in the area had a 2-night minimum. We were pleased when this property was available for only one night. It was just as promised, with 3 bedrooms and lots of room for visiting and relaxing. The owner was easy to contact and answered all our questions -- including a recommendation to go to the Congress for pizza and the Cognition brew pub for a beer. Can't wait to come back!

It was perfect. The washer and dryer,coffee in the cupboard and the overall feel of the house was a nice place to hangout and relax after riding snowmobiles all day.
