About the Property

Cabin, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Cozy efficiency cabin and beach cabana with a wood burning sauna stove. Wood is provided. We are the fourth driveway on a private road. It offers a lot of privacy. Wild blueberries and strawberries on and adjacent to property. We have 10 acres of land and 170 feet of frontage on Lake Superior with a wide sand and rock beach. It is ideal for rock hounds. Adjacent to the Michigan Nature Association 241 acre Black Creek Nature Sanctuary.

Fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, dishwasher, electric stove, two microwaves and dishes, silverware pots and pans. Located on the west side of Copper Island, you never miss a sunset here. Our cabin sleeps 4 on a handmade cedar post doublebed, with a new pillowtop mattress in 2010, and a new hide-a-bed couch in 2011. Our 39 grandkids love it here.

The sauna and deck are built with cedar logs from our property. From the top bench you can see a unique panorama of the beach through the windows. In 2010 we installed a new wood fired sauna stove. The sauna takes the chill off after a dip into the waters of the world's largest fresh water lake, Lake Superior. The beach cabana is ideal for a beachside picnic. The cabana has a couch, table and chairs and counter tops, a sink and running water. We have a sand volleyball court. All paved roads to get here with a gravel driveway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: Bob is Michigan Tech graduate he is retired. He worked for 18 years as a Michigan Tech finance administrator,he also worked as the Internal Audior at the White Pine Mine, Controller of a family business in Minnestoa and as a Edward Jones Investment Rep. Current he is a lay pastor at a Lutheran Church in Phoenix, AZ. Kathy is a retired math teacher. We have six kids and 39 grandkids. Bob's Dad was born in 1903 and grew up on Bumbletown Hill 6 miles from Cedar Bay where his grandparents move in 1900. Somebody in the family has owned lakefront protery at Cedar Bay since 1958 family roots go back a long way.

Why the Owner Chose Calumet, MI, USA:
I purchase the property hoping to build a home here, I was an administrator at Michigan Tech for over 18 years. In 1993 I, a 45 year old bachelor, married a widow with 6 kids and moved to Minnesota. We built the cabin as a guest house for our kids hoping someday to retire here and build a passive solar home in the hole on the southfacing hillside. Instead we retired in Sun City, Arizona and I became a pastor at a church there. Therefore, unable to spend 6 months here as we did for a few years we now rent it on VRBO when we are not here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We enjoy going sauna and swimming with our 39 grandkids and other kids that come to visit us. Making s'mores on a campfire on the beach for the kids while we watch the sunset and the stars come out. Hikes on the nature trails are always fun.
