Property description

Enjoy a relaxing vacation in our newer cottage. Beautiful views of Lake Superior from the great room, the master bedroom and the full length deck! Views of sunsets, stars, northern lights, freighters, birds and the lake in its many moods are yours to enjoy. Take a walk on the beach, go rock-hounding, skip stones and swim (if you’re really brave) on our beach.

Use the cottage as your base to explore the Copper Country. Beautiful beaches, breathtaking views, mine tours, lighthouse tours, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, waterfall viewing, sea kayaking, museums, shopping and dining are among the many pleasures of Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. The Keweenaw is a winter sports wonderland.

Horizon Point Cottage has all the comforts of home with two bedrooms (a king-size bed in the master bedroom and two bunk beds in the other); full bathroom; fully equipped kitchen with microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher; picnic table and gas grill. There is also a gas fireplace in the great room to warm you on those chilly northern nights. Gas furnace for winter use. Towels and sheets are provided.

Special note to our future Guests:
In order to prevent VRBO from charging additional fees to our guests, we have not signed up for their online payment system. Despite pressure from VRBO we continue to refuse their demands that we add this feature because it will allow them to charge our guests an additional fee for the use of their website. We have rented our home to many travelers over the past 10 years using our own payment method and have never had a dissatisfied customer. If you have any questions or concerns, I encourage you to give us a call.

Sincerely,
Jerry Rabe

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We met and fell in love while students at MTU back in the late 1970's. Jerry is from Lower Michigan, Nancy is from Ironwood. The natural beauty and serenity of the Keweenaw area captured our hearts during those early years. Several years later we returned with our young family for a week long stay in Eagle River. The cottage we rented was a bit of a dive, but we all had an absolutely wonderful time. We started dreaming of having a place a place of our own on Lake Superior. The 10 year plan for our cottage became the five year plan when the cottage was completed in 2006. We designed it as our Dream Home ... to be comfortable, cozy and easy to care for.

Why the Owner Chose Allouez, MI, USA:
We chose this property because of its location, beautiful setting and ease of building. We love that we can keep it open year round when we choose to. We love the shared beach area and our wonderful neighbors (who aren't too close!) We love sitting on the beach watching the waves change throughout the day and watching the sun set in the evening. We love being within minutes of everything the Keweenaw has to offer. The area has dug its hooks deeply into our souls. When we are away, we are constantly dreaming of our return.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach! The view! The smell of fresh air and cedar trees! Our sandy swimming area! Deer and fox, woodpeckers, loons and eagles! Freighters, fishing boats and sailboats! Kayaks and canoes! Falling asleep to the sound of the waves and catching the occasional northern light show.
