Why Craig Stien chose Michigan

There is spectacular hiking or biking right out the door, and a private dock for your use. The trail system has areas of old growth virgin timber and overlooks of the surrounding wilderness. Saux Head Lake is a low impact lake with minimal boating activity, no public access, and good fishing for Bass and Pike.

What makes this house unique

This is an ideal location to visit historic Big Bay to the north, and Marquette to the south with its summer events, festivals, museums, and fine dining. There are also several remote waterfalls within 30 minutes drive.

spotless, great rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to rent. Location waas great, a challenge to turn the shower on but a fun puzzle. We only had one complaint. There was no where to sit in the living room that was comfortable, lots of worn out furniture.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic time here. The house is perfect and set up completely for a comfortable stay and is very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the lake, beautiful scenery, and all the hiking and fishing of the area.

The house was especially nice for us, traveling with a 1 yr old and 3 yr old. It was easily child proofed, great crib and toddler bed and even had toys! The little ones were thrilled

Saux Head Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Well appointed house. Great private lake.

Craig was great. He was able to give us advice on area attractions and info on navigating the lake and the best fishing spots.

We'd definitely come back again.

week vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation opportunity for those looking to have some adventure or just peace and quiet. It's located immediately next to a non-motorized trail network that has both 2-track and single track for running, mountain biking, easy trail riding, cross-country skiing, etc. We especially liked the improved kitchen for making our own meals and the hospitality of the owners. Saux Head Lake was much warmer than nearby Lake Superior and provided great recreational activities for our whole family. Thanks Craig!!
