About Vern and Victoria Harlock
My family and I have invested in this beautiful property so that we can escape our everyday life.
Vern and Victoria Harlock purchased this House in 2017
Why Vern and Victoria Harlock chose Toivola
We fell in love with this property for it's privacy on a quiet lake. The house is just big enough to enjoy and has all the amenities we need. The lake is loaded with fish and is a joy to swim and fish in (some people will want water shoes). We love the sunrises and sunsets, the turtles and birds, and everything else that goes along a great secluded property

Great location but the beds and the couch in front of the TV were very uncomfortable we left a day early for the lack of sleep. I've rented other cabins and would rent again but would pass on this one. It rain most of the time but when you are handed lemons you make lemonade. To me way over price just because of the furniture but the cabin was well stock. No drapes on bedroom windows.I'm sure if the people bought some decent beds and a couch the cabin would be a hit. Anyway maybe next time we're looking hope we find something better. If anyone has a bad back they shouldn't stay my back was sore after the first night. Sorry I could give a better review but just being honest.
Steve and Carole - I am sorry you found the beds uncomfortable and feel our cabin is overpriced. This is by far the worst review we have received, most reviews are to the contrary but I appreciate your feedback as we are always trying to improve. A couple side notes for this review, the mattress in the main bed is brand new, we are looking at replacing the twin beds that someone slept, the curtains and rod from the bed room were moved to the dining room for some reason and was apparently not caught during cleaning since it sounds like you did not move them. I found them upon inspection this morning and solved the issue in about a minute. Also, we noted your response of our welcome on the fridge, I am sorry we welcomed Robert but that was due to him being the person with the reservation and not Steve and Carole. Also, we received no communication or response to our messages after your booking making it difficult to know that you were not pleased with your arrangements and impossible to be of any service in finding solutions to those issues. We are sorry it rained continuously during your stay, that one is out of our control, we are just as unhappy with it ourselves. Again, we appreciate the feedback and we will look to act upon it and appreciate you staying with us. We look forward to continuing to host and hope you find your accommodations more satisfactory on your next trip. Thank you
A perfect up north experience!
This was a great little cabin! It appears deceivingly small on the outside, but quite spacious on the inside. The two bedrooms were perfect and there was even plenty of space for our dog crate in the dining room. The cabin is well stocked, with the plush towels making me feel like I was at a fancy hotel instead of a cabin in the middle of the woods!
WiFi was great! And the communication from the cabin owner was second to none! Very quickly responsive and accommodating! I highly recommend any place this owner has for rent!
The water pressure was phenomenal! Better than mine at home! The bonfire area was nice and the kids enjoyed a paddle boat ride! My husband made use of the kayak and said the Lake was gorgeous! I appreciated having the life jackets accessible, and even the animal water bowl/system! As strange as it sounds, that was such a blessing to us! Another highlight was the dog cable outside. We brought a tie out with us, but didn’t need to use it as there was a better option already set in place!
Our kids also enjoyed playing some of the games in the cabin. They were ones we don’t have so new and very exciting for them!
The only downfall is that we didn’t have enough time to enjoy it as much as we wanted to! Next time we want to be able to stay much longer. This was “home base” for us as we went off exploring during the daytime up to Keweenaw Peninsula all the way to Copper Harbor and then down to Porcupine Mountains!
The area is very dog friendly! So for those traveling with their furry kids, this is a great place to come!
On our way out of town back to the lower peninsula we stopped at Canyon Falls. A must see for the hiker who loves rock and waterfalls! Also a great place to take the dogs. A clean crick area as you enter and leave for dogs to drink and cool off.
Thank you so much for staying with us and I am super excited that you thoroughly enjoyed your weekend getaway and fell in love with the Keweenaw and the western UP. We appreciate the review and feedback on the property as we continue to make improvements and look to add to our properties. Thank you again for staying with us, taking great care of our property and equipment, and being perfect guests. We would happily host you and your family again and look forward to seeing you again soon!
