3 stars for location & beach. 1 star for accommodations

  • 3 of 5

Visited with kids (ages 30+) & grandkids (2 & 4 yrs old). Great location. Short distance to Pictured Rocks, Shipwreck Museum, Presque Isle, many waterfalls & hiking & restaurants & grocery stores. Beach very nice for all. Did not use basement. It smelled bad & was dirty Kids slept in their sleeping bags on the floor in their parents room. Master bedroom had beautiful beach view. Took off top blankets as the instruction sheet for guests said they aren't washed between every guests stay. One had a blood stain on it. Yuck. Instructions said to wash dishes & towels before leaving but we had to buy soap to do so. We did all the chores in instructions before leaving (put trash in bin in garage but it was full when we arrived) & left it probably better than on our arrival. The pictures look much nicer than it is. We liked the privacy. But we will not be returning.

Nice house, great location.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed there early October, our first time in the UP and our 5th beach/vacation house rental. Really love the outdoor decks, close proximity to Lake Superior, great home layout for two families. 10 minute drive to Munising and pictured rocks, close to a general store and two restaurants. Right off 28, and never felt like it was a busy road.

House did lack kitchen wares I tipically expect, like a mixer, measuring cups, spoons, larger pots, etc. but not sure what's typical in this area.

Rusty colored water isn't welcoming either.

But.... Again it's right on Lake Superior! And the beach behind it is top notch with excellent sand, very quiet too!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so beautiful! Our years of planning a girl's only trip were brought to life in the best way. Seven of us stayed and were able to sleep comfortably. The beach is right out the back door, only a few steps and you are there. On warm days, the best place to be. The deck is great as well, you are able to relax and listen to the waves roll in, while having a phenomenal view. It is secluded enough for the privacy and peace and quiet you're looking for but still close enough to lots of sight seeing opportunities and a couple of decent sized towns for good eating, maybe a little shopping, etc. The only down fall (besides the typical and totally expected Northwoods bugs!) was the water quality...bring your bottled water and be prepared to have a somewhat stinky shower due to the iron deposits. Definitely not enough of a down fall to put any kind of damper on the stay, however. We have sworn to return in the future!!!

Perfect vacation...

  • 5 of 5

As parents of a 6 yo and a set of toddler twins this beautiful beach home couldn't be any more perfect. The images do not do it justice. It has everything that you need to spend a week in comfort with a beautiful beach right out your back door and a spectacular view. We will certainly return.
