About Robin Smith

I was born and raised in Marquette, MI here on this property. I am a licensed hairdresser, licensed Massage therapist and certified Yoga teacher through yoga alliance. My goal here is to turn the main house into a healing retreat center. It was a bed & breakfast when I was growing up, so I "learned the ropes" from my mom and plan to take the legacy on, adding a few amenities to offer to our guests, such as personalized yoga classes or massage, or couples massage. This is a great place to stay if you are looking to engulf yourself in peace and beauty, somewhat disconnecting from our normal everyday busy lives. Our paradise is too magical not to share with the world.

Robin Smith purchased this cottage in 1924

Cute carriage house with a beautiful Lake Superior beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. Our hosts, Robin and Joshua, were amazing! Incredibly attentive and Robin promptly answered any questions we had. Bonfires at sunset on the beach are a must up there. We brought our paddleboards with us and my sister and I loved taking them out when the water was calm. The surrounding area is great, black rocks, dead river falls, and Marquette are all great places to visit. I loved that I could bring my dog with us, she enjoyed the beach and the home as well. We were definitely satisfied with our stay!

The house is set in a secluded woods, with access to the beach. It was great!

We appreciated having our 2 dogs with us to enjoy the local hiking and long walks on the beach. Humans and animals were made to feel very welcomed! Robin was there to accommodate our every need, and literally gave me the "shirt off from her back". We are looking forward to another visit soon.

This property has an amazing view with amazing hosts❤️

  • 5 of 5

We are from the city. Escaping to the North is a passion of my husband and I but we are not able to do this often. We were able to arrive and walk into this cozy property and have all the comforts of home. Just a few hundred feet from our rental was an all sandy shore along Lake Superior- complete with bear tracks one of the nights we stayed and cougar tracks twice. The sunsets were gorgeous to say the least! You won’t be disappointed!
