About Sharon Karttunen

I have lived in this area since 1960. Raised two well rounded, happy girls due, in part, to the beautiful area. I can't imagine living elsewhere. Yes, it's cold and snowy in the winter, but when spring and summer arrive, all is forgotten.

The picture above is my daughter and her sons. It was taken the day they went to Presque Isle, located in the park and beautiful place to view the falls and spend time on the beaches of Lake Superior.

Sharon Karttunen purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Sharon Karttunen chose Silver City

I have owned property in this area since 1980. Where I live now, was once the Rainbow Motel and Chalet's. The property where the cabin is located was called The End of the Rainbow. It was a restaurant and Laundromat. We remodeled all of it. My parents and niece lived in the two cabins on this piece of property. Mom and Dad decided they should be closer to town and my niece went to collage.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is a great base camp for all the activities at the Porcupine Mountain State Park. It's a beautiful piece of property with maples, white birch, and spruce trees that are very old. I remember going to the restaurant when I was younger, getting an ice cream cone and watching the bears. From the car, of course.

This trip was amazing! My boyfriend (at the time of check in) and I loved the cute cabin with no complaints. Very clean and cozy! We were in the area for skiing which was also amazing! He proposed to me at the top of the mountain on my golden birthday, so now my fiancé! The cabin helped make the trip one for the books and most memorable! Thank you so much we will definitely be staying again!!

Nice home base for exploring Lake of the Clouds area

  • 4 of 5

Tiny cabin across the street from Lake Superior. Cozy with the amenities that made for a nice stay. The bed springs are starting to sink in the middle - An extra blanket would also be a nice addition. Thanks!

Enjoyed this adorable little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my four night stay in the little cabin very much! My three small dogs and I spent everyday hiking and exploring and found the cabin to be very cozy and comfortable at the end of each day. It was very clean, nicely decorated, and had most everything we needed for a great stay. The only thing that would have made it even better would be to have a small lamp on the nightstand in the bedroom for reading. Would definitely like to come back next fall!

Lovely Little Superior Cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful spot for a quiet getaway! We visited the Porkies as part of our honeymoon. The cabin is the perfect size for two, and not much else so be warned. If you're looking for a family getaway go for Sharon's larger cabin on the property. Beautiful view of Superior and so close to the Porkies. Nicely equipped kitchen for simple meals, gas grill and fire pit with some firewood provided, Wifi and TV with basic channels were all wonderful additions. We can't sing the praises enough of this quaint little spot.

Cozy Cabin for 2

This was a nice cabin. The kitchen is small it might be a good idea to bring a slow cooker. They supplied all the fire wood we needed
