About Mary Pat Johnson
We were born and raised in Marquette/Big Bay area. Always had a great love for Lake Superior and the UP. Never wanted to leave.
Mary Pat Johnson purchased this House in 2011
Why Mary Pat Johnson chose Big Bay
This was a dream home of my parents. They built late in life, but were able to enjoy 8 years of what my Dad called 'His Heaven'.
What makes this House unique
Located inside the Big Bay Harbor of Refuge. Watch boats coming and going. The break wall can put on a spectacular waterfall-like show in a storm

This home provided plenty of room for my brothers family and ours and was located conveniently within driving distance from Marquette . We have been spending our summer vacations together for the past 10 years picking a different place in Northern Michigan every year. We all agreed this was our favorite trip so far. We were able to swim & kayak on Lake Superior , swim in local water falls as well as drive to Pictured Rocks for day trips. Mary Pat was very accommodating for us and we look forward to coming back here !!
Attending a wedding in Marquette, so needed lots of room for all the groomsmen. This home was perfect for all of us. There were plenty of beds and separation for the guys and their girlfriends (and for me!) Loved having the water on all sides of the house, so all the rooms had views! The beach was great. Would have liked one more shower for when they were all getting ready, but we managed! The kitchen was well equipped and we loved having the extra refrigerator. Mary Pat was great to work with and very pleasant. Highly recommend this property.

My wife & I, our son and his wife and four children (6 yrs and under) stayed here the first week in August, 2015. The home was wonderful, excellent views with water on 3 sides and great sunrises. Kids enjoyed swimming on private beach and adults used the kayaks provided. Everyone had a great time and the owner, Mary Pat, was great. She was easy to work with and even allowed us to show up early which was awesome after an 8 plus hour drive with 4 small kids. She made us feel like family. We can't say enough good things about this property or the owners. We will come back to this one!
This vacation home was absolutely wonderful. The house was beautifully decorated, very spacious and wonderfully positioned on a small peninsula which provided us with a semi-private beach and nice cool breeze in the evenings. We stayed for 1 week but it seemed like only a few days. Mary Pat was a terrific host and made sure that we had all the things necessary to make our vacation perfect. We will definitely be coming back again.
Wonderful Lake Home
What a great place to stay. The cabin has everything you could possibly need. We spent two weeks 6/27 - 7/11 2015 and had a great time. We had guests from New Zeland, Latvia and Sweden as well as many from MI. The beach is clean and sandy. There is plenty of space to spread out for large groups. Thanks Mary Pat.
