All cabin proceeds are donations that help pay off the mortgage on the property, protecting the Conglomerate Falls natural area in perpetuity.
The rustic cabin lies at the end of a two track (1600 Conglomerate Falls Lane) more than 1/2 mile off a gravel county road (Tanskanen Road). Find peace and tranquility in the north woods, surrounded by white pine, maple, birch, and fir. The river is just a short walk away, with beautiful views of the famous fishing hole, Conglomerate Hole, and the upper falls. Dogs are welcome and will have the time of their lives! This is a special place anytime of year. In winter you will park on the county road, and ski or snowshoe 1/2 mile into the cabin. In spring/summer/fall, drive up access makes it easy. In warmer months, bathe using the rain barrel water or jump in the river or Lake Superior! Or ask about shower availability at the Ahmeek Streetcar Station.
This was our second winter stay here and it's such a treat! Super cozy, warm, and close enough to be able to snow shoe to Lake Superior! Couldn't recommend a stay here more!
The cabin was perfect. Everything was as described and worked. The property was beautiful and the river was amazing. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to get away from everything and enjoy some peace and quiet.
The property is beautiful and in a perfect location, halfway between Houghton and Copper Falls. The cabin is rough, but contains everything as described. We enjoyed this as a base for day hikes and exploring.
The driveway was almost inaccessible in our Pontiac Vibe. The road has very deep ruts, and we nearly bottomed out several times. This may be a unique situation with all of the rain this year, but we thought others would want to know to check in with the owners before arriving.
The owners were very responsive and helpful.
This was my family's second year to stay here. We love it. Great place to relax.
Thank you Northwoods Conservancy for helping more people to enjoy this beautiful part of Michigan! Great peaceful location immersed in nature with plenty of hiking opportunities, gorgeous beaches, and historical copper country to explore. You will not run out of things to do. We stayed 3 nights. We took took one day to hike and swim in the Gratiot River which was a challenge but totally worth it. Another day was spent exploring Calumet and some of the mining ruins in the area. We wanted to stay at least twice as long and continue exploring and hiking. We hope to return and do just that.
My husband and I rented this cabin for 2 nights and had such a wonderful time. We brought our dog, who might have even loved it more than we did! We stayed here during winter a few years ago and enjoyed it so much that we knew we had to return in the summer. I love how secluded the cabin is, the beautiful location, and the easy access to the river. We hiked downstream to Lake Superior on our second day (at a leisurely pace, with my trekking poles, it took about 1.5 hours each way). The enclosed fire pit was a nice touch, and the solar power was great for late night card games. Can't recommend enough for those who are looking to get away from everything and relax!
