About Danielle Kolbus
I met my husband Kevin on a "girls" snowmobile trip in February of 2011. I was visiting from Byron in the lower peninsula and he has lived in the Munising area for most of his life. We got to know each other and fell in love via technology (Facebook and phone calls/texting). We were married on Grand Island in July 2012. We have what some would say an unusual relationship, as we still live 6 hours apart (except I did move to the UP for a year with my 3 girls but they all wanted to move back downstate after a 1 year trial). So we have basically have a 6 hour commuting marriage! It's not ideal and we look forward to when we can be together all the time, but we both knew when we met that we were meant to be life partners <3
Danielle Kolbus purchased this House in 2015
Why Danielle Kolbus chose Munising
My husband Kevin and I bought this property under unusual circumstances. The previous homeowners had some damage done to home, and decided to sell instead of rebuild. Due to the fact that their driveway goes right through our business parking lot, we felt compelled to purchase. So the home was renovated and we opened as a vacation rental in July 2016 after purchasing in September 2015. As much as we would like to take credit for the master bath, that was all done by the previous owners and helped to make us fall in love with home and convince us to rebuild instead of demolish. We also loved the beautiful, peaceful view overlooking the lake. The firepit and waterfall area were also nicely done and we thought others may enjoy staying there as well. We had debated on keeping or removing the pool (liability), but we are so glad we kept it! Even our girls enjoy using it whenever the home is not rented and it's nice out :)
What makes this House unique
Some of the unique benefits to our vacation rental are that you have so much privacy (can hardly see a neighbor from the property) yet we are so conveniently located being right on M-28 and so close to everything! Another wonderful benefit in the summer is that we are the only vacation rental in the area, that I am aware of, where you have your own private, heated pool to use during your stay. Many guests think Lake Superior is a little chilly to swim in (we call it refreshing, lol!) so it is nice to be able to come home after a day of exploring to a nice, warm, heated pool :) For our winter time guests, our heated garage is a great convenience for working on snowmobiles (if needed) or to even just have them thaw out after a long day of riding so they are ready to go the next morning!

Amazing house with all the comforts of home!
Danielle and Kevin have a beautiful rental property. Incredible view, very private. It is fully stocked with everything you could need! We had a group of 8... Very comfortable with all the comforts of home. The house is in a great location that was a great home base for us as we explored the UP! The kids enjoyed the heated pool, we loved how many outdoor gathering areas there were as well! Thank you again!!
Amazing and relaxing!
Where do we begin? The house couldn’t have been more perfect. The location was very central to everything, but you still had privacy! The pool was perfect for our down days, and the extra bonus was it was heated! Danielle and Kevin were super receptive to any questions we had and gave great recommendations to local stuff! Overall an amazing vacation and can’t wait to be back!
Great place to wind down at the end of the day!
Furnace Lake Overlook was as wonderful as promised. We enjoyed every inch of this vacation home and would definitely visit again. Our girls spent countless hours in the crystal clear waters of the swimming pool, and I spent many an evening soaking in that glorious Jacuzzi tub! It is conveniently located just miles from Munising, and the trip to Marquette is easy as well. Wonderful! Thanks for a great week :)
Very relaxing comfy cozy house, very clean. Owners were so helpful and Awsome
Fantastic our family would definitely stay there again. All the comforts of home. Very impressed with the owners communication
Very nice property to relax at in the UP.
House was set up really well and was perfect for a weeks getaway to the UP. Plenty of space to hang out and the heated pool was an excellent place to use in the evening. I would recommend staying here if your traveling to the Marquette / Munising area. Plenty of things to do and see within a short driving distance.
Excellent stay !!
We stayed 3 nights and it was a wonderful experience. The home was immaculatey kept and very comfortable. Danielle was very accommodating when we had some issues with the dates and worked with us to make the vacation possible. Look forward to staying there again in the future.
