Lakefront on Lake Superior, large private sandy beach cottage
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Absolutely beautiful and oh so relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many vacation homes / summer cottages and i have to say that this was one of the nicest ever. Very nicely appointed and well-kept, this cottage was comfortable, homey, bright and open. Everything we needed was included. The little bay was just perfect for paddling in the kayaks, which we did nearly every day. The cottage is 45 minutes from Lake Superior Provincial Park - perfect for hiking. I'd highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in the woods.

Private Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row, our family spent a wonderful week at this cottage. Once again, all possible amenities were available to us which made packing for the vacation much easier. The cottage is very well cared for and clean. It truly is a stress free stay. We spent the better part of each day outside playing with our young son on the beach or exploring on our bikes. At night, the fire pit was where we spent our time. This year the weather was fantastic. But even if you are forced inside because of rain, you don't feel cramped or overcrowded because the cottage is quite spacious. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas as well. This year we spent half a day hiking around Chippewa Falls. All in all, we love this cottage and are already planning on returning next summer.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our one week stay was wonderful.The cottage was large, clean and had all the amenities we could possibly ask for! The two fireplaces add a lot of charm as well.

It is on a large tree-lined lot with great privacy which was extremely important to us. It was awesome to enjoy the peace and quiet. We spent most of our time outdoors with our young son on the sandy beach or biking. At night, we loved sitting by the firepit near the water.

Overall, it was a terrific cottage and we look forward to returning again.

A Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one amazing week at this cottage and loved it. It is well kept, clean, and spacious enough for 6 adults and 3 children. The cottage is located on a bay that is secluded, private and quiet. The dining area is large and fit everyone comfortably for meal times. The view from the beach and deck was beautiful especially in the morning as the sun rose. The sandy beach was great and enjoyed by all. The cottage included a paddle boat, kayaks, and bikes as well as a boat launch. The water is shallow and caution is need when driving a boat. The owners were easy to contact and made renting very easy. I would highly recommend this cottage and look forwarding to returning in the future!

Above expectations

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived we were pleasantly surprised at what we saw. Large, clean, updated cottage in a beautiful quiet area. They supplied more then we thought and with 7 adults and 3 kids it didn't seem crowded at all. The beach was perfect despite all the ants and flies. Location was great, went into the city and the provincial park so there was a ton to do! Would love to come back anytime!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our one week stay at the cottage. We wish we could have stayed longer! This is a great place to stay when visiting Sault Ste Marie and Lake Superior. It is located in a quiet bay on a large, private lot. We were very pleased with how nice the cottage is, both inside and out. The cottage is well appointed with all the modern amenities. It was larger than we expected and was very clean and comfortable. The cottage has a well maintained big yard in the front and back, a fire pit, gas grill, and a large deck with a great view of the water. The cottage also has a nice beach where we spent most of our time during the week. Our only suggestion is that a few water “toys”, such as a paddle boat, canoe, or a kayak would have allowed us to spend some time on the water. The owners made the transaction of renting very easy and worry free. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a lovely, quiet retreat on Lake Superior close to Sault Ste Marie.
