Secluded hide-away

  • 5 of 5

Loved the seclusion. Didn't see one neighbor all week. The stars were unbelievable at night and the cabin had all the amenities we needed. The wood stove was very cozy and warm.

Great property.......

  • 5 of 5

The residence was clean and had all the amenities of home. Lake Superior was right at your back door with about a 20 yard walk across the backyard.

Had a great time using the sauna and the fire pit in the evenings.

Checking in and out was a breeze at the end of your stay.

I would definitely book this residence again.

Amazing lake view

  • 5 of 5

We were group of three plus one baby and spent one september week at this interesting place.

This cabin has several features that makes it charming: amazing lake view, secluded area, sauna, spacious living room and plenty if beds. It offers good comfort and everything we needed. The interior is mostly wooden and somewhat rustic, reminding you of the nature waiting outside and forgetting about the polished mess amd rush if the city.

We hiked on Keewanau almost every day. The hz ike not to miss is definitely Bete Grise preserve: amazing walk around the lake surrounded by nature. When it was raining, we used the sauna, which helped is to get to the water easily.

The downsides were that the beach was much shorter than it is on the images, as there was more water in the lake.

If you are not expecting tidyness and flatness of a hotel, but are looking for experience the nature and charm of the Keewanau and lake superior instead, this place will likely be a good choice.

Beautiful view and cozy cabin in the woods. Lake Superior was really high this year but the beach stretches to the north for a good mile or so for plenty of walking and exploring. Something about this place resets you. Would love to find a way to stay here year round.

Keweenaw Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us the use of Loot’s Lodge again. We were gifted with unbelievably splendid weather, especially for this time of year. Full sunshine every day, mid 70s to I think even an 80 one day. We never used a drop of bug repellant! I think Friday we noticed a very few nats and a fly or two that did not bother us so I am sure we were on the edge of all the insects emerging. We packed so much cold weather and rain gear and never used it.

We very much enjoy the property and location! My wife and I are significant sauna enthusiast and the wood fired sauna at the edge of the lake for post sauna dips is a real treat. This year we dipped in the lake as small mini icebergs passed us by on their way to the South.

We stayed here last fall and had the most amazing weekend. the fact that we lucked out and had 80's in October helped. But the house and lake front access are wonderful. We brought our dogs with us and had a fantastic weekend of relaxing and hiking. The scenery is amazing and its a great location with only a short drive to most of the UP. We are hoping to stay again in the near future.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Man, this place is plush. Expected more of a 'cabin' feel. We thoroughly relaxed after relative's wedding. Didn't go down to the lake much, but the view is awesome from the deck. No berries left. Visited Copper Harbor and Captain Don, plus a few shops. This was so relaxing and everything is here we needed. Thanks so much!
