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!!

Here is a link to a 3D virtual tour of this property:

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.

Incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy and Dan keep amazing us with their places. We've had the pleasure of staying at three of their places now and and they keep impressing the heck out of us. The design was incredible and well thought out, the parking for our trailers was the best we have ever seen, and the service was excellent. We had a problem with one of our sleds and Dan didn't hesitate to help when asked for some help. Can't wait to get back next year!

First Class Loft

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The accommodations are first class. Very impressive construction. Truly a work of art. Well stocked with cooking utensils. Plenty of cups, plates and flatware. Plenty of room for good sized group. Close to town. Easy access to what we agreed is the most scenic trails for ATV's we've ridden.

Note, it is a loft. Be prepared to carry your provisions up two flights of stairs.
