A rustic and beautiful retreat
We had a wonderful time and a great place to spend with family and friends. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a get away and enjoy the outdoors, fish, camp fires, kayak, swim and bike. There was an endless way to spend outdoor activities and watching wildlife and sun sets. The surrounding area also offered additional activities such as kayaking pictured rocks in Munising. It was a bit of a drive but well worth it. I would also recommend a restaurant in Michagamme call Mount Shasta-great food and service.
The one feedback have to make guest's stay more enjoyable and convenient is that more dish rags, towels, pot holders, hand towels and dish wear/utensils are needed.
It was also disappointing that the sauna did not work during our stay as this was one of the reasons that we rented the cabin.
Ovderall a great place to stay.
Was a great place especially if you have a large group, the care taker Paul met us and brought us to the house which is deep into the woods so your pretty secluded from everything, was a very clean place with lots of space, the lake was pretty much ours but the fishing was pretty slow but I did hook on to a big snapping turtle.
There are is a small pontoon boat good for three maybe four people to go around the lake and there are kayaks you can use also.
As far as nature we did Have moose tracks outside the cabin on the first morning but never seen them again, a couple eagles and a couple deer on the way in and we did see some turtles come up on shore and lay some eggs but the only bad part was lots of misquotes.
Let me finish by saying was a nice relaxing week.
If you want an amazing wilderness experience with all the comforts and amenities of home this is the place for you.
Very enjoyable place! Loved the sauna and relaxation. You also have fishing, kayaking and simply enjoying the outdoors.
Many wonderful memories made in this secluded serene lakefront cabin
We had a wonderful time. We stayed here for the second time in three years with our entire family of 6 adults and 2 children. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone or group looking for a place to get away from everyone and everything. Fishing all day , camp fire in the evening and relaxing all the times in between. I would suggest or throw out there that without a washer/ dryer in the cabin that more towels would be nice . With 8 people showering, playing the lake , etc it became a challenge to find a towel to dry off with but really only great things to say about this place. The location was pure serene nature - even the squirrels were entertaining !
The cabin, boathouse, lake and land were beautiful!
I took my kids to see what the UP was all about. The caretaker was helpful and friendly and the cabin was very clean and comfortable. We plan to be back sometime preferably after the UP mosquito season. The location made visiting several different places easy and the privacy and seclusion of the property was fantastic. We used all the boats and were quite at home using the available kitchen and sauna. My kids have some fantastic memories of our first VRBO cabin rental.
