What makes this house unique

We had thought about buying lake property to enjoy with friends and family. We looked at several properties and kept coming back to this one. We loved the architecture of the house, and our girls loved the property with so much room to run and play. It's magical for them every time we come here.

Great time

  • 4 of 5

Our 3 families spent a week here and enjoyed it. Pros:

-Jeni was great. We had a few minor needs and she responded quickly.

-The house fit 15 people pretty comfortably. I never felt it was too small.

-If you never wanted to leave it would be perfect. The water is great (rocky though) and the property is large enough for many kids to run around and play in the sand.

-The house is stocked full of everything you need.

-It was clean and the price was great.


-The location is great on the water but if you are exploring the U.P. it is kind of far from everything. Munising and Marquette are over an hour away and even Rapid River was 20 minutes.

-The two bathrooms are not enough for 3 families since the one bathroom is upstairs near the loft area. But we made it work.

-The inside looked good but the outside needs a paint job.

Overall, we were happy with our stay and enjoyed our beautiful U.P. adventure. Thanks Jeni!

We LOVED the UP Lakehouse!!! <3

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the UP lakehouse!!! We have 3 children (10, 9 and 6) and they had so much fun. We truly didn't want to leave the lakehouse. :)

Our week had lots of rain on and off, but there was still plenty of fun to be had. Jeni provides a closet full of game, puzzles and toys or there are plenty of tv's so everyone can be watching something. The house has 2 wood burning fireplaces to keep it warm and cozy (we know as we used them (darn weather)) which makes this is a great vacation for anytime of year.

We all enjoyed exploring the beach, kayaking, getting a couple visits from a Bald Eagle, and catching tree frogshere and at the lighthouse just down the road (6 miles).

The house is very clean and well organized. It was so nice to have a washer and dryer all week to keep up on the laundry, so I didn't have a pile of it when I got home! Bonus....Jeni provides the laundry detergent for you!! HInt.... one less thing to pack.

We look forward to staying at the UP Lakehouse many more times. What an incredible place to create so many wonderful family memories!! <3 <3 <3

Give it a try you definately won't regret staying at the lakehouse.

Thank you Jeni for the great experience!

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

Overall me and my family had a great time and loved the beach. Interior is nicely put together, and has most amenities that you would need. I would say the exterior of the house needs a little work as the deck was in a little rough shape. Overall we would stay again! Thanks for having us.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Jeni's place! It felt much bigger than the pictures and the house is unique enough that there are lots of little nooks and areas for kids and adults to regroup in quiet, while also having an open floorplan kitchen/living/dining. We had a lot of fun with the kayaks available as well as the beach firepit. We loved it there!
