Why Brenda Jackman chose Ontonagon

This property has been in our family for well over 100 years. When our parents passed away, we did not want to part with it, so we renovated it to share with our family, friends, and neighbors. We tried to keep as much of the original flavor of the house as possible - what wasn't already changed by our ever-busy remodeling mother! The interior is completed, but we still have some work to do on the back porch, as well as the exterior.

What makes this house unique

Although we are located conveniently close to all the stores and play areas, the lot is very large and private.

Great home and location for snowmobile enthusiasts

  • 5 of 5

The location is fantastic for snowmobile riders, you’re right off the trail and gas is less than a mile away. The plus for snowmobile riders is, the property has a very large parking area and it’s right off Hwy 45. The House was very clean and well stocked with items you would need . Would stay there again.

Nostalgic and exceptionally clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time as the property was close to downtown conveniences/restaurants.

It was only a 2 block ride to get to the snowmobile trail.

We will be back.

Overall a nice place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

There is no house number which made it a bit confusing to tell if we were in the right place or not, but after we found it we enjoyed our stay there. The house was clean with plenty of room for everyone. It was adequately stocked with kitchen utensils, towels, and all the other basics to make our stay feel homey. There is a charcoal grill and charcoal was provided which was a nice touch. Very quiet and conveniently located close to the beach and downtown. The owner did not provide any information about our stay ahead of time until we asked for details (such as how to get in the house/find the key when we got there), but she was very responsive to our questions. That combined with no house number and a bit of a messy yard makes me give it 4.5 stars instead of 5, but overall this was a great place to stay.

Great value

  • 4 of 5

For the price, it is an excellent value and the home is exactly as it is advertised. It was very clean and comfortable. There are many beds, with one bedroom having four separate beds, one bedroom having two, and the final having one. So, if your group doesn't mind sharing a bedroom, there are plenty of places to sleep for a larger group.

Had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband rented this house to go snowmobiling. The trail is only 1 block away from the house. Snowmobiling was great and we made it all the way to Copper Harbor. It is nestled in a very quiet neighborhood as we did not hear any of the neighbors. The house is very very clean. I am very good at cleaning and this house even has me beat. I would rent this house again.

Thank you
