About the property

3 Bedroom, Sleeps 8, Lakefront Property

This cottage has 3 bedrooms which includes 1 queen bed, a full size bed and two twin beds. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room to sleep 8 comfortably.

Sunset Lake is very peaceful and yet has plenty of activity going on. Sunset Lake is an excellent fishing and water sport lake.

Some of the best features of this property are evening campfires, very quiet nights and morning coffee on the property's dock (pier). The property's beach stays shallow for the first 100 feet and is a sandy bottom making it great for kids. There are canoes, kayaks and paddle boats at the property for use by guests. The pier is large enough to dock a boat.

About Carol Puskala

I have a long history with Sunset Lake in Iron River. My mom and two sets of aunts and uncles live on the lake year 'round. We bought our place in 2001 just prior to the arrival of our third child.

Carol Puskala purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Carol Puskala chose Upper Peninsula

Our cottage or 'Camp' as we call it in the UP is near family on a lake that is the best water sport recreation lake in Iron County (my opinion). The water is clean and warms up nicely in the summer.

What makes this cottage unique

We chose this property due to the nice beach and flat landscape that is very kid friendly. Our kids were 7, 1 1/2 and newborn the month we closed the sale.

A benefit we discovered later is just how quiet the place is at night.

Peaceful Sunset Lake Cottage
average rating of 4.0 based on 2 reviews

The view of the lake is priceless! We will definitely go back.

  • 4 of 5

The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars was because the stove didn't work and the lawn service started cutting the lawn without letting us know and we had a 3yr old and baby outside. It did have a charcoal grill or a grate to cook over the firepit. The cabin itself is rustic but equipped with everything you need. The lake is an excellent fishing lake as well as kayaking, wakeboarding, tubing, etc. Iron River is so close you have groceries, gas, and supplies only 5 minutes away. One of the best family vacations!

Good Value

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Good location on a beautiful lake. Had everything we needed. It was a good value, clean, well maitained. Owner was easy to work with.. Directions and photos of property were accurate. We would stay again. We recommend eating at the Knotty Pine Cafe, 11 Main St, Gaastra, MI 49927. It is a small cafe that's family owned with great home cooked food at a good price. Fast, free WIFI can be found at Angeli's Foods, 833 Riverside Plaza, Iron River, MI 49935. They also have a movie theatre.

This House in on Sunset Lake
Car: necessary

The setting is very quiet and peaceful, yet there are people nearby. It is not remote. There is no highway noise and very little local traffic. The lake has an enjoyable amount of activity. Evening campfires are a favorite as is morning coffee on the dock.
