Welcome to pristine, private Upper Holmes Lake in the center of Iron County. This Lodge was totally updated in 2014 with your Family 'Vacation Satisfaction' as its goal. The front 1/2 of the Lodge is a combination kitchen, dining room and living room with big windows to the lake. The deck is 12' wide across the entire front of the Lodge and includes a picnic table and chairs and a new gas grill. The back half of the Lodge contains a big bathroom, and 2 big bedrooms. One bedroom overlooks the lake, is very private and contains one double bed, a big mirrored dresser and matching sitting bench. The second bedroom contains a set of double bed bunks and a set of single bed bunks. The living room couch also folds out to provide a double bed. The maximum number of guests is limited to six people. The private lake provides swimming, boating and good panfishing with an occasional bass, pike or walleye. This lake is home to beaver, otter, loons, songbirds and nearby nesting bald eagles. Deer, bear and grouse are abundant and a moose occasionally visits the lake. A firepit with adjustable hanging grill is in the yard and firewood is supplied for your hotdogs, s'mores and relaxation. This cabin and its private acreage, on a private lake, allow you to reconnect with nature and enjoy the convenience of a small town only minutes away. We encourage long term stays and will consider reducing the rates for periods over 30 days. The owners private 100 acres is for your recreational use. Private trails and scenic vistas are included on this acreage. From olookout bluff you can see Crystal Falls 5 miles away as you look out over the Paint river valley. Take your lunch and cell phone/computer along. A picnic table is provided and 4G service is almost guaranteed atop the scenic outlook. Also, the Lodge has a full basement with entry door located under the deck. The basement becomes very useful during periods of inclement weather. The electrical power for the lodge is supplied via a new solar system professionally installed summer 2016. After dark guests are encouraged to utilize the propane gas lights in the living area of the Lodge. The ambience provided by these lights reflecting off the natural pine finish of the walls creates a unique experience. Some couples have said it has a romantic effect. If the atmospheric conditions are suitable after dark, outside, you may enjoy viewing the Northern Lights. If you are a railroad train lover--listen for the 'TRAIN WHISTLE' then go to a location where you can see the North end of the Lake. A RR trestle runs across the Lake and trains use this track everyday.
While there are great trails for ATVs and ORVs nearby, these vehicles are not permitted on property itself.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We have owned some of the adjoining acres and lake frontage for 25 years as a part of our nearby 600 plus acres, which is a Certified Tree Farm. Ownership of this property was a natural fit with our other farming and family interests. Our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren encouraged us to purchase and update the cabin and rent it out to others who can appreciate all the comforts of home in an off-the-grid private, natural lakeside environment. The kids and grandkids have already made future reservations to insure that the great grandkids can experience this natural environment as they grow up. The grandkids must think this is a magical site as they annually travel from Arizona, Colorado, South Carolina and Indiana to spend their vacation time, even if grandpa and grandma are not in Michigan. We live nearby and will assist renters in any way we can.
Why the Owner Chose Crystal Falls, MI, USA:
The opportunity to purchase this property fulfilled our dream of owning this very private 100 acres with 2000 feet of lake frontage along with this Lodge and a second cozy Cabin (vrbo #509589) in a very pristine, natural environment. A private boat launch, dock and swimming area is available. The boat launch won't support boats over 14' long. The Lodge has 1200 sq. ft. of space on the main floor and a full walk out basement. This Lodge is centrally located in the Western U.P. which allows day trips to the Porcupine MTS., Lake Superior, Lake Michigan and many other historical sites. World class trout fishing rivers/streams are minutes away. THE huge Michigamme reservoir is 5 minutes away and includes wilderness boating/fishing and a boat launch.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
There is high probability that, during your stay on this property, you will not see another person. In season, you may be able to pick your own mushrooms, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Organically grown fruits and vegetables are available to purchase in town. It's possible that you may see a bald eagle fishing for its dinner on the lake and loons swimming with their babies. We encourage stays of a month or more and will consider modifying the rate for stays over 30 days.
