  • Children Welcome:

    Our 2 boys grew up sking and snowboarding all of the slopes in the area. Indianhead was their favorite! In our opinion this is the safest most 'kid' friendly place in the Upper Pennisula. Since we are a 'walkout' triplex we have a large sloped yard. As a result we have an awesome sledding hill. The snowplowdriver also plows an extra big hill which the children love turning into their own private slope for sledding or snowboarding. You can watch them play out the home windows. The adults traditionally create their own jumps with their snowmobiles and have as much fun as the kiddies!...moreless

200 Miles
Nearest Airport
Ironwood, Duluth, Minneapolis, Appleton, WI

Ski the Porkie's. Close to Keewanee Ski Slopes.

Black Jack Resort 1 mile away.

Powerderhorn Resort 3 miles away.

Whitecap Slopes close by also.

Many other smaller ski resorts in near vicinity.

We have a huge plowed driveway for vehicles and trailers.As a result we have a gigantic pile of snow that so children.

(& adults) enjoy sledding and snowboarding down those as much as the Indian head ski trails. You can watch them play right outside your window.

The house has a walk out basement unit, because of this we are built on a large hill. (more fun for everyone!) There are no neighbors on the left side or back of the house.

The pool and spa at the lodge is a big hit with everyone.

3 Casino's approx 1/2 -45 min. away.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We have owned the duplex since 2000. We currently live in Florida, but love to travel to the Upper Peninsula. Our 2 boys grew up snowboarding and skiing on Indian head and other area slopes. This past summer we renovated the entire place. It now is unique, custom and is the best place on the 'HILL' to rent.

Why the Owner Chose Wakefield, MI, USA:
I grew up as a child camping in the UP and as I became older my 'boys' learned to ski and snowboard. Especially enjoying Indianhead Resort. The boys also loved the advantage of the other nearby ski places, ie; Blackjack, Powderhorn, Whitecap and small but cute Gogebic College's hill. My husband fell in love with it after visiting one time and bought this place as soon as it was available. We also have a large extended family and having the ability to sleep large groups is a great advantage. There is so much to do in the area. Many other nearby ski slopes, great snowmobile trails, X-country sking, shopping in little antique and gift stores and great restaurants. The area depends on tourism so the residents are friendly and helpful. It is an awesome place to 'get away from it all' The small town 'feel' is so nice. One of the best things is it's very safe and private. We also love 'snowmobilers' and being on a trail is a huge bonus. We make sure the driveway is plowed extra wide to park the trailers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
All we can say is FUN !!!!!!!!
