Absolutely Beautiful Private Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much it was absolutely beautiful. Very peaceful with absolute privacy and no signs or sounds of civilization, just what we head to the UP for :)

The Cabin/home is very clean and very well maintained. Living off grid has never been easier and this Cabin/home does it flawlessly.Your own 40 acre lake/Pond. Crappie, Perch, Sunfish,Blue Gill, Pike all there for the catching 20 feet from your door and all the right watercraft to make your stay adventurous Kayaks, Canoes, Flat bottom boat no need to bring yours but if your attached bring it! The waters pretty calm, a slight breeze across the lake was perfect might need an anchor to keep you in one spot. Trails abound for a nice hike with dogs which we had off lease the entire time we where there. One of the reasons we liked this place so much was the ability to allow the dogs off lease, to run around they absolutely loved the place wore them out daily slept like babies at the days end ;) Sun Fishing Hiking Exploring during the day Camp fires at night quiet for sleeping.The UP has been one of our favorite vacation destinations for years it offers many unique places to visit like Historic Ghost Town of Fayette, Big Spring (Kitch-iti-kipi),Pictured Rocks ... We really love this place and will be back again.

Thanks for letting us Stray B&M :)

Best vacation ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for your very own lake (the only cabin on the entire lake!!), this is the place for you!! Beautiful cabin, enjoyed walking the many many trails, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and a camp fire every night! We were in the middle of nowhere but still had TV and WiFi! Loved every minute of our stay. "Divine Tranquility" is how my husband describes the experience!! We strongly recommend.
