NEW! Loft Rental with Sauna next to Portage Lake & Sandy Bottom Beach

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,200 sq. ft.
Property type barn
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

2200 Square Feet, 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath with a sauna. Next door to beach!

This barn was built in 2015 Kemp's Carriage House Loft Rental and is located next to our Kemp's Portage Lake Log Home Rental, VRBO #487326. Rental of both properties allows for groups of up to 33 guests!!

This rental is also across the street from Portage Lake and is conveniently located near all the exciting special events, attractions, and recreational opportunities of the Keweenaw Peninsula. Michigan Tech and Finlandia Universities are only six miles away.

The main floor of this rental is for the owner’s storage. The loft rental area contains three bedrooms, three baths with tiled walk in showers and a sauna. It provides beds to sleep sixteen, perfect for a family reunion or a large group. It also includes a full kitchen, surround sound system, as well as a washer and dryer. The well-designed kitchen along with an outside charcoal grill makes cooking easy for those who want to eat in rather than go out. All pots, pans, dishes, towels and sheets are provided. You only need to bring your consumable goods!

Many antique items used in the loft have been obtained from our local area. Interior building materials were reclaimed from old barns and buildings. The corrugated metal roofing lining the interior ceiling and some walls came from the Ford wood plant in Pequaming. (This plant provided local wood for the construction of the Ford Model T and A cars built in the 1920 and 30's). Reclaimed hardwood’ over 100 years old was used for the flooring. Interior walls are also finished with reclaimed wood. 

A lot of local history has been used in the decoration of this rental property. Some items came from the Atlas Powder plant formerly located on the 1400 acres behind the property. There are also many logging tools, some over 100 years old.

All of this adds up to a large comfortable space with a very cozy feeling.

Beautiful home with gracious owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our time at this spacious, fully-furnished home with a well-stocked kitchen. Many family members especially loved the indoor electric sauna with adjoining shower! I also had the pleasure of viewing the large log home rental on the property, and that is also a beautiful home. I highly recommend this owner and property, and we will definitely book with them again.

Rustic Chic.

  • 5 of 5

Awesome VRBO. Super cool place to stay, and everything was very clean and well kept- bathrooms, kitchen, bedrooms. The decor, furniture, and finishes are top notch. We stay in a lot of high end VRBO places, and this is actually our favorite of all time. Outdoor patio at the apartment and fire pit down by the lake were both huge bonuses. Owners are great people and very responsive.

Everything was perfect at the Loft. Beautiful, clean and in a great location. It was the perfect place for a large gathering - 14 of us from 3 different arms of the family. We're so happy to have found this great home. Thanks Sandy

Great property in a stellar location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This loft vacation home was a great find. It is one of the nicest homes that we found in the area and was in close proximity to all of the things we wanted to do. We had two families sharing the property and there was plenty of space to make us all comfortable. We really loved its interior; definitely a one-of-a-kind find!!!
