Beautiful Cabin on the South Shore of Lake Independence
Beautiful 2 BR cabin on the South Shore of Lake Independence. Large living space with large eat in kitchen, sun porch overlooking deck/lake, living room, 42' flat screen TV (Direct TV). 2 small adjoining bedrooms upstairs (1st BR room has queen & twin, 2nd BR has King bed). Cabin rental includes wireless Internet, fire pit/enough wood for at least one fire, dock, gas grill. Bring your groceries and plan on a relaxing stay, if you forget something Big Bay is only 5 mins away with a general store. Big Bay is a small town, there are a couple places to grab a burger and if you prefer fine dining or the vibe of Marquette's lower harbor/ historic downtown area, its only 25 min drive to Marquette. Lake Superior/Squaw Beach is 5 minutes away so you can enjoy the big lake at your leisure. Lake Independence is large enough to easily fish or water ski on yet not crowd each other. Very private setting, cabin on one side and empty lot on the other side of the cabin. 170' of Lake Independence beach frontage. Good swimming out front, shallow to end of dock then becomes deeper so great for kids and grown ups. Sand bottom with some small stones.

About Tom Shaw
We live in Marquette and spend as much time in Big Bay as possible, its a great place!
Tom Shaw purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Tom Shaw chose Powell
Our cabin is in a private area with vacant land on one side and cabin that sits back further on the other. When you are sitting on the deck or in the sunporch it is very private and peaceful.
What makes this Cabin unique
Lots of beach toys! Lawn chairs, fire pit, dock, beach toys, and tennis rackets for renters use.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Great cabin for a girls getaway weekend. We hiked at Thomas Rock, the Big Bay Lighthouse Trail, and had a lovely time!
PICTURESQUE, PEACEFUL, PRIVATE AND PET-FRIENDLY
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are grateful to the Shaws for sharing their lakefront cottage with us. The area offers many opportunities for adventure to nature lovers, and it must be said, the people of Big Bay are a delight!
Sadly to us, our dog did not join us on this trip, but it is nice to know she would have been welcome. She would have loved swimming and watching the many ducks!
The two main living areas as well as the lakeside bedroom offer a beautiful view of the lake! As noted in other reviews, the two sleeping areas are adjoining and so lack the usual privacy, but are not lacking in comfort.
Great getaway. It felt like home away from home.
The grounds and the lake were beautiful. Great place to take a boat or kayaks. Was a little disappointed in the conditions of the Windows, it was difficult opening and closing. The stairs to the second floor can be tricky. After the stay, felt the price point was a little high for the accommodations.
Great place for an adult getaway. The lake was quiet and loved the very small town of Big Bay.
Had an awesome stay in this place. Beautiful cabin with everything you need to have a relaxing getaway. I definitely hope to stay again!
Cabin with full emenities of home
Secluded and quite with all the items you may need from home. You will likely not need them as there was plenty to enjoy outdoors and in the area. Hiking,biking,kayaking, and bird watching. Saw bald eagles, mergansers, loons, geese, hummingbirds, song birds, herons, cranes all from the deck when we relaxed. Sleeping arrangements more like a bunk house as no doors on sleeping area. We slept so soundly it didn't matter when we hit the hay. Very enjoyable stay.
Beautiful spot, easy, comfortable house
We spent two weeks in this house. It is a beautiful spot, and the house was very easy to settle into. Kitchen was well laid out. We pretty much lived on the enclosed porch and deck. Owners were very easy to work with.
Glad you enjoyed our cabin, we love it there!
Cabin is about 2 miles South of Big Bay Michigan on beautiful Lake Independance. Nice lake that is big enough to waterski and not bother fisherman.
