About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The “Muskie” is a charming and cozy cabin that is located on a beautiful beach with 4 other cabins. It has 3 bedrooms and a sun-porch located on Sunset Lake in Iron River, Michigan. It offers a beautiful view of the lake and is large and spacious. It has a fully furnished kitchen, one and a half baths, a masonry fireplace, cable TV, and sleeps up to 8 people. The cabin is located 3 miles East of Iron River, Michigan,nestled in the pines on beautiful Sunset Lake.

Come enjoy Sunset Lake and all it has to offer. We have 100 feet of beautiful sandy frontage that has a gently sloping bottom - perfect for young children! We provide a swimming raft and beach toys.

Or, use our fishing boats with paddles (motors available for rent in nearby Crystal Falls, or bring your own boat that you can dock at our pier (boat launch is 500 feet from the cabin). Sunset Lake has great fishing for panfish, bass, and northern. Clean your fish in our 'fish house' which has running water and a freezer for your catch.

500 feet away is also a great county park with a large playground, basketball courts, baseball field, and its own large swimming beach. A great place to let young kids unwind and explore.

In the evening, enjoy a campfire in the fire pit down by the lake. After experiencing a sunset down at the lake, you will see how the lake got its name - it is absolutely spectacular! After dark, the amazing stars and quiet of the U.P. will make it seem as if you are in a different world!

About The Owner

Jesse - Luckily, I grew up in a family that had a lake cottage. My wife and I wanted our children to have that same experience of 'going to the cabin'. We are happy to share our piece of heaven with others when we are not able to use it! From the number of renters that keep coming back year after year, I can tell that Sunset Lake has a special place in their heart!

Why The Owner chose Iron River

My wife and I decided to purchase 'The Muskie' after visiting the area and falling in love with all that Sunset Lake has to offer. Our family loves the combination of a great sandy beach, awesome fishing, a playground nearby, and the friendly attitude of all the people in the U.P.

What makes this cabin unique

Our family enjoys the beach and swimming most of all, but the campfires down by the lake are a close second! And, the fishing keeps even our young children entertained. The peacefulness of the U.P. cannot be overstated - uncrowded lakes, beautiful scenery (including amazing local waterfalls), and the friendliness of the people of Iron River. Once people have visited Sunset Lake they can't wait to get back!!!

Rustic yet modern

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was a dream - beautiful and fully stocked. Although the cabin had many levels (i.e., not handicap-accessible), it was very roomy. View was wonderful.

Welcoming property with quiet setting and lake.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Musky cabin. Very quiet lake with wonderful views great fishing. Dock and beach area were enjoyed by all. Kids had a great time enjoying the water watching lots of wildlife. Eagles, ducks, loons, fish.... Plenty of sleeping area in the cabin and kitchen was all new and updated with the necessary appliances and items. Would definitely go back again.

Wonderful lake and area. Muskie cabin is rustic but functional. Not spotless but comfortable.

  • 3 of 5

Fun to stay in the Muskie cabin if you're not expecting a 5 or even a 3 star hotel. We're considering staying there again.

I did not expect the cabins to be that close together. The cabin was musty, dirty and full of flies.

  • 2 of 5

Cabin was not clean and for the price I would have thought someone would have come over n to clean before we arrived. We did have a nice kitchen but the rest of the cabin was not very clean and full of flies. Windows were very dirty and the trees could have been trimmed to see the lake or not hang on the cabin. Just needs some TLC and good cleaning
