                                                              Great Setting Summer or Winter!

                                                              Rich L.

                                                              We have stayed at two of Philip's properties along the lake. We had a great stay both times. In the summer we hiked, kayaked and had a fire on the beach and watched the sunsets. In winter we snowshoed on the beach. The location is perfect to go and do many other outdoor activities summer or winter. Both times Philip has been very accommodating. Our family will stay at one of his places again in the future.

                                                              Snowmobile Weekend

                                                              Bob H.

                                                              Well kept and very clean, beds were comfortable.

                                                              Welcome to the Keweenaw

                                                              Aaron P.

                                                              This is a quintessential Keweenaw cabin near Lake Superior. The Keweenaw is lost in time and the cabin reflects that feel. We stayed in winter, two couples no kids and it was just the right amount of space. We x-country skied at the many trail systems nearby and hung out. Very relaxing weekend. The cabin obviously has a lot of history and we appreciate that about both this cabin and the Keweenaw in general. It's not new and fancy but it's not dirty or unkept, it has character and is cozy. We can't wait to come back and check out the Lake Superior shoreline here in the summer and fall. The owner was easy to reach via email and text. Thanks for a great stay!

                                                              Cute cabin... perfect cabin for our snowmobile getaway!

                                                              Sam B.

                                                              The cabin worked out great for our snowmobile getaway! Set up with everything you need from dishes and linens to wifi and cable. The cabin was clean, warm and cozy. We comfortably fit two couples in the cabin and were able to park two trucks and trailers in the driveway. The trails are not too far and we were able to ride the sides of the roads to get to the trail heads. The owner's communication and direction was great. We will be staying again!

                                                              Love this place!

                                                              Juli H.

                                                              We've stayed here for many years and love it. Philip is a great host, the cottage is quaint, cozy and welcoming after a day a skiing the trails if Swedetown and Michigan Tech. Thank you for another memorable vacation.

                                                              Cozy home away

                                                              Becky B.

                                                              We enjoyed our stay at Storybook Beach Cottage. It was a little hard to find in the dark, but we were able to use our google maps and it led us right to the cabin. Upon our arrival, the porch light was on , the driveway shoveled, and the heat was turned on. A welcome basket of water and snacks was left on the table. The layout of the cabin was perfect for people that wanted to sleep and those that wanted to stay up later. The coffee was enjoyed each morning as we took in the breath taking views of Lake Superior. Very relaxing !
