Rustic but not elegant

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here for the night only because it was already paid for. The place was dirty, dusty and full of cobwebs. The setting could have been nice because it's right on the water with a sandy beach, but the yard was a mess, with tall weeds and unmowed grass. We couldn't wait to leave and were very disappointed.

Charming, rustic

  • 4 of 5

A tight fit for 4 people, but cute cabin. Hard to find, especially at night. Gorgeous property and view of the bay.

Amazing views of the Bay; Cabin is adorable!

  • 4 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin! It is a little slice of heaven tucked into the bay! The authentic log cabin was great. The morning views of the bay while walking on the sand enjoying coffee were spectacular! (Even in November!) Even the dog enjoyed the water! Well worth the trip! Perfectly located if you want to check out the Western part of the U.P. Would definitely stay again!

Cute Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This is a cabin built for 2. We loved our stay, but felt that with 4 people (2 adults, 2 active boys), it was a bit tight and didn't work well for us. That said, the cabin was very cute and quaint. It was a bit hard to find at night, but other than that, our stay was nice.

Quaint Cabin in the woods yet right off the highway~ Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to have found this quaint little cabin just a stones throw ( well maybe a half hour) away from Houghton and Michigan Technological University. Our college freshman was very happy to see us and he thoroughly enjoyed the spa like bath including a rain shower head and Jacuzzi tub. Prior posts had mentioned dust and I have to wonder if they realize that this is a cabin in the woods. We found our every need was met and we highly recommend the drive in across the street. It is my hope that we will be able to arrange another stay in the near future. I highly recommend this Baraga jewel:)

Where do you live?

Such an adorable cabin! "BUT" dissapointing.

  • 2 of 5

The overall upkeep of the cabin is lacking. It was not clean. The overabundant knickknacks were dusty and full of cobwebs. There is rotting on the exterior cabin logs. The property was un kept. The grass was long with 4 inch tall mushrooms everywhere. If you have allergies, steer clear. I loved the fireplace. The whirlpool tub was awesome, but it leaks and the floor was spongy and reeked of mildew smell from the moisture. This could be such an adorable cabin with great potential, but the obvious neglect made the experience lack luster and not worth the price paid per night. Pride needs to be found by the owner of this place. Some hard work is necessary before it falls into total disrepair...
