About Mike and Sharon Lahti

We have 6 Children & 14 Grandchildren who we absolutely adore. We are in the real estate and rental business. We lead very busy lives, but would have it no other way.

Mike and Sharon Lahti purchased this house in 2005

Why Mike and Sharon Lahti chose Hancock

It is secluded, yet close to town. You walk in and right away it feels like home; and to have 300 ft. of Sandy Beach and a dock to fish off, there is no question that your stay with us will be one that you will remember. Disconnect from the whirlwind and relax at our cabin.

What makes this house unique

Our Children & the Grandchildren can play in the water and it is shallow for quite a ways.

Our Sauna is so relaxing and a jump in the lake after will cool you off right away.

Also, we know you will enjoy having enough room for all of your family and/or friends to gather.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely stay. Everything was well maintained and clean. The kitchen was great as was the rest of the property. Convenient to Houghton/Hancock and the rest of the Keewenaw.

Beautiful Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great base for exploring the Keweenaw Peninsula. This lovely home had everything we were looking for. Spacious, clean, comfortable beds, tastefully decorated, quiet location, fabulous lake view, well provisioned kitchen, and wifi. Our hosts were wonderful as well - responsive and helpful. Some of our favorite experiences in the area were the mineral museum on the Mich Tech campus (great gift shop), taking a mine tour, and riding UTVs on the extensive trail system (rented from Trailside north of Calumet.). Thank you Mike and Sharon for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Our whole family loved the place, and we hope to return again...and again. Thank you for providing such a quality place for family memories to be made.

Dollar Bay spring

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Very nice home in Michigan's U.P. abundant wildlife to watch, eagles, loons, Red Fox, deer, all from the door-wall. This home was a wonderful location to stay for our son's graduation from Michigan Technological University. Close enough to Houghton/Hancock yet secluded and private.

Relaxing Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for several weeks and had a wonderful time. The great room is so bright and had a nice view of the lake and backyard. We enjoyed using the kitchen. Our toddler loved the apples from the apple tree and looking out for the bunnies that live on the property. We used the boat dock to go kayaking on the calm, beautiful lake. The house was clean and well supplied.

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

You won't go wrong with this rental. This rental is well maintained, clean, comfortable and quiet. Everything was top notch and very peaceful. The sunsets spectacular. There is nothing like coffee by the water in the morning, or wine by the firepit in the evening, watching the sunset. We would definitely stay here again.
