Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage last year and couldn't have had a better vacation. Being right on the lake was divine, especially when kayaks are provided. We loved everything, especially the top deck (the perfect spot to spend evenings grilling and watching the stars). I will definitely stay here again the next time I visit the U.P.

Snowmobile Pardise

  • 5 of 5

The location was so perfect. The house was played out really well even when sleeping ten adults. Room for air mattresses in living room. House was modern and clean. Kitchen was like being at own home. Views were outstanding. Owners were friendly and accommodating.

Comfortable, large, and nice location in Big Bay...a little lacking on some house keeping details...we had to purchase t paper and waste baskets were not taken care of...but small concerns to us. We had a wonderful time!

Awesome family weekend with our graduate!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home in order to keep our family all together while we were in Marquette for our daughter's college graduation. Despite there still being ice on the lake, we enjoyed time in the evening by the fire pit. There was plenty of space for us all, and we even had aunts, uncles and friends out following graduation and really enjoyed the family time. The view of the lake was amazing! We are hoping to make a return trip for a less busy weekend in the near future!

Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this cottage as the lake is beautiful and the cottage was very comfortable for all of our family members. We enjoyed fishing off the cottage pier and kayaking on the lake with the kayaks provided by owners. The owners were very nice and helpful as needed. The town is cute and has good food at the Thunderbay Inn. It was also nice to cook at the cottage while spending time relaxing and eating on the big deck. We also enjoyed smores at night while sitting around the fire pit. We all had a good time in this cute cottage on the lake!
