Clean, comfortable, quiet

  • 5 of 5

Grandma Nina's House is located a block off the main drag in Rockland, MI in the UP. The main caretaker runs a small general store a half block from the house. She is friendly and always available. The store has everything you might need. The house is ultra-clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is old-fashioned, but works. I made Thanksgiving dinner there with no trouble. The house is close to the Porcupine Mountains and a good base for exploring the Upper UP. Nearby Ontonagon has a good True Value hardware and a great supermarket - Pat's IGA. Hassle-free vacation. Well worth a visit.

all around great

  • 5 of 5

this was our 3rd year to stay at Grandma Nina's house. It's the perfect location for the fall activities we are interested in, esp. being only a 1/2 hour drive to the Porcupine mts. We always find it very clean, and a well stocked kitchen for cooking. Love Tina and Steve, who own and run the General store, where we pick up the keys. The leaf color was wonderful this year. Couldn't ask for much more. Highly recommend this property if you are looking for a peaceful place to stay in the area.

The Grandma Nina’s house was very easy to find with the directions provided. Rockland, while rather in the middle of nowhere, is centrally located near many UP attractions. The house has everything you might need for your stay. Bob was easy to work with and responded quickly to all my e-mails.

We stayed at Grandma Nina’s during the first week in October 2017 and arrived to find the house to be comfortable and very homelike. It had most of the modern conveniences (no WiFi, I appreciated that) yet had a rather old time feel to it, very warm and inviting like Grandma’s house would. The interior and exterior of the house and grounds have been nicely maintained and the interior of the house was simply spotless. My compliments to the cleaning crew (Tina)! The caretaker also works next door in the general store and she was more than helpful answering all our questions.

During our days we drove around the area looking at the fall colors and returned in the evening to relax. We look forward to staying again in the future.
