About Carl & Michelle Treankler

Carl and I both have roots to Wisconsin as that is where we grew up and went to school. We lived in small family businesses our whole lives. Mine was the grocery business and Carl electrical manufacturing. Currently, Carl is a shareholder of 2 family businesses in Pulaski, WI. After we bought the property, the decision was made to move to Houghton and live on the property in order to fulfill our dream of building a camp. Our work continues to grow day in and day out with the many opportunities this property gives us.

Carl & Michelle Treankler purchased this barn in 2011

Why Carl & Michelle Treankler chose Atlantic Mine

Sitting on 220 acres, with a 10 acre lake, it was 'love' at first site. We purchased the property and 3 months later my husband brainstormed the idea of starting an outdoor bible camp for high school kids, church groups, or sport teams. Already being a big supporter to Camp Luther, in Three Lakes, WI, Carl started the plan to make this area their base camp. With an old barn that hunters used stayed in, an old homestead, a 600 square foot cabin, and double wide home residing on the property, it became clear there was much work to be done. Having the vision of creating something great, we began the construction of a pavilion, addition to cabin, and complete gut out of the barn. With these projects done, new ones continue to begin in transforming the property into a premiere camp for kids. Future projects consist of high/low ropes course, zip line, frisbee golf, basketball court, welcome center, and additional camp sites.

The barn stands alone as it is a quarter mile away from the camp. Looking out from the upper deck on the barn, you can enjoy watching the geese fly in on the pond that also lies on the property. A great spot to watch some wildlife.

Bookings are on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis!

What makes this barn unique

With numerous apple trees on the property, you can go out and pick apples then enjoy making your very own apple pie or cider.

The 10 acre lake provides great catch and release fishing of brook trout, rainbow trout, brown trout, and walleye. Oh, and did I mention the name of the lake is called 'Love Lake.'

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the barn. The renovated barn is cute and cozy, and had everything we needed. Although the weather was bad, we were able to walk the trails a little ..would love to come back in better weather to explore and enjoy the beautiful property more. Since the weather was miserable we especially enjoyed fires in the wood burning stove :) The location was perfect for spending time with our son at Michigan Tech. We were able to drive back and forth easily, with just a 10-15 drive. It is also convenient for all attractions in the keweenaw area. We would definitely recommend it!

Nice to see the brilliant night sky away from lights!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our two students at Michigan Tech and were pleased to have room to "entertain". Cooked a meal while they watched the ballgame. Just like at home! We really enjoyed hiking The property as it was a perfect sunny fall weekend. The drive to campus was about 10 minutes. I don't think we will ever stay in a hotel again while visiting them.

This is our favorite place to stay when we come up to Houghton to watch our son play football for the Huskies. It never disappoints! I highly recommend this place. Michelle is just awesome to work with! We're already looking forward to the next time. 😊
