About Catherine or Steve Helwig

We have skied from this house for over 20 years and continue to have great adventures in the Upper Penninsula with our growing children, family and friends. It is owned by 4 people/2 couples from the Madison area. We enjoy our property year round! Our Ramsay Retreat is the perfect, affordable, get-a-way to relax, rejuvinate and be in nature!

Catherine or Steve Helwig purchased this house in 2003

Why Catherine or Steve Helwig chose Upper Peninsula

This property is located just minutes from the areas best 3 ski hills, miles of snowmobile trails - 1 block out the back door. Friends passed it on to us after allowing us to enjoy it with their family as they grew up.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to area, low cost compared to most others that sleeps 12 or more.

Ramsay home

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this home (three families total) to ski and ring in the New Year. The location of the home was perfect- not a far drive to Indianhead and Powderhorn. The home fit our large group comfortably.

The home is in need of updates. Our biggest disappointment was the TV. We were hoping to watch the Packer-Lions game but the TV was so old that it didn't receive broadcast from local stations. You could only view movies. So we watched the game on our iPhone. 😬򛀠

Wifi was not available.

Kitchen was stocked with enough pots and pans but cookware could be better (non-stick pans).

Communication was good with owner.

Overall, we had a nice stay.

Floridian Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to the Ramsay Retreat. It was convenient to many locations, since we had both cross country and Big Powderhorn as destinations. Winter/ski decor was cute (wondering if it switches over in the non-snow months?), kitchen well-equipped, bedding comfortable. Parking area was cleared, and instructions and communication was terrific. I slept like a log because it was so very quiet! Only improvement would be to get the wood stove repaired for use! Our accommodations were as fine as that of my cousin, who was staying at Big Powderhorn, for a fraction of the cost. Great place for large groups or a family to explore the whole area. Thanks!

Great location for outdoor enthusiasts

  • 5 of 5

Our first winter visit to the Ironwood area was an amazing success. Being just minutes from a variety of skiing and snowboarding resorts makes this an ideal winter adventure location.

The hills and staff at Powderhorn and Indianhead were terrific. We'll be making this location an annual family trip for certain!

The house was a perfect fit for our crew which included four boys. This cabin has ample space with 3 bedrooms, 2 sets of bunkbeds and two baths. We appreciated how thoroughly the kitchen cupboards were stocked, all the extra personal touches of spices, candles, toys and games as well as the fun array of movies for the family.

We very much look forward to returning to Ramsay Retreat again this summer to enjoy the mountain biking, hiking and kayaking opportunities that seem to be around every corner!

I would have prefered a couch rather than a futon in the living room but all in all the place was fine. Great location to the ski areas. We enjoyed our stay.
