About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Anam Cara is a wilderness retreat with modern luxuries. With 150 forested acres and nearly a mile of shoreline on semi-private Spruce Lake, Anam Cara is truly 'away from it all.' Yet virtually every amenity is provided -- including luxury, hotel grade mattresses with down-filled bedding (synthetic linens optional); over-sized furniture; a selection of boats; Finnish sauna; satellite TV, stereo and DVD player; and more.

Anam Cara has three bedrooms in its main house, and one more in a window-encased guesthouse high above and right next to the waterfront. The main house has a large deck with built-in seating and Weber grill, and a great room with large picture windows overlooking the lake.

The property, with its lake, three ponds, and 2000 feet of river frontage, teems with flora and fauna - including loons, eagles, pike, walleye, panfish, deer, berries, and an abundance of wildflowers.

Rustic and serene retreat

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Camp Anam Cara.

We had a big family gathering of three generations. We loved the peaceful, private surroundings and beautiful lake.

We fished every day and star gazed at night. You definitely feel like you are in a true lake house in the wilderness.

We hiked, swam, kayaked and enjoyed the flat grassy area next to the house where we set up corn hole and the kids tossed football.

On rainy days we drove into Marquette for shopping and also visited a nearby waterfall.

We cannot wait to return.

The only constructive feedback I have is we definitely needed more linens, dish rags, clean potholders and dish soap. Unfortunately the caretaker also told us the screen doors for the rear patio doors were missing and had yet to be replaced so we could not open these sliding doors for a cool breeze.

Aside from these small things everything was as expected- a beautiful, quiet, private retreat on a quiet lake in the beautiful UP.

Thanks Brian!!

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time so much! It is a very secluded property, perfect for getting away from it all. Great for fishing, hiking, kayaking, and napping :) the property was nice, and the caretaker friendly and helpful.

This property was by far our favorite in our five years of going to the Upper Pennisula.!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Upper Pennisula on our family vacation for five years and this was by far the hands down favorite with all our age groups and activity levels. The youngest loved it for the abundant turtles, fish and frog catching opportunities , the teen loved the boating , fishing and campfires , the adults enjoyed the remote quiet peaceful surroundings and comfortable cabin amenities. This place provides an out in the woods experience, complete with a beaver and beaver dam, with the comforts of home. Great vacation - helpful and very nice caretaker that stopped to check on us and give us the lowdown on area fishing. I would definitely recommend this for family of all ages. The mattresses were just right for a wonderful night sleep. Home was very well maintaned with great grill , carpet made for a place that kids run in and out of , a splinter free deck to relax on and watch the grandchildren and teenagers play off of the dock and swimming pier, and large fire pit to sit around and make smores and hobo pies.

Renewed Spirit

  • 4 of 5

Everything was lovely. The seclusion was just what we needed to decompress from stress. Great beds, kitchen had everything we required, and the grill was excellent. Fishing was iffy because of the weather but we had fun. Local flora and fauna was beautiful.

Absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 kids and I loved staying here. We had the lake all to ourselves! We fished right off the dock and would catch enough fish for us to eat supper every night. The kids loved kayaking and the pontoon was great to take out fishing. It was so secluded and quiet! We wished we could stay there forever!

A wonderful place to rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

This was our eighth year at Anam Cara and we have loved it every time. Our stays have always been wonderful and relaxing. The week allows us to re-energize for the rest of the year. The scenery is beautiful and the accommodations offer everything you could reasonably expect.
