Overview

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.

Very nice place

  • 4 of 5

We loved it ! Only issue was it was very hot the first few days and no air conditioner. It is the U.P. so this is rarely an issue but it was an issue for us. Otherwise a very nice place.
