Perfect week on Lake Superior

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at the cottage in Brimley for 5 days in August. The cottage was very nice. Just like it is described. Very clean & well stocked. Our GPS took us to the neighbors house, but the cottage was easy to find & clearly marked, just pay attention to house numbers when you arrive.

The home owners were very lovely to work with.

The yard & beach front are lovely. The water wasn't freezing the week we were there so our kids spent a ton of time searching for rocks in the water & kayaking.

We had a perfectly clear night to sit out & watch the Perseid meteor shower by the fire. While sitting out a fox (my kids have named Timber) meandered thru the yard. It was so quiet & peaceful.

This cottage is about a 25-30 minute drive from Sault St Marie where they have a new Meijer.

It took us 30 minutes to get to Whitefish Point, 1 hour to Tahquamenon & 2 hours to Munising. The Iroquois lighthouse is 5 minutes from the cottage. They have a nice walkway, a small museum & you can climb the lighthouse for free.

We would gladly stay at the Brimley cottage again!

It's hard to know where to start with the wonderful vacation get away. It was a very private setting which we were looking for right on Lake Superior with a sandy beach that my two children used several times everyday. The house was in a very clean condition when we arrived. The owners and person they have maintaing their house definitely take pride in their work. There were amble kitchen supplies to include pots/pans/dishes/silverware/coffee maker etc. everything that is needed. The double headed shower head in the bathroom was a very nice touch. This house is centrally located very well around all sorts of activities to include Saulte Ste. Marie, tahquamenon falls, whitefish point, oswald's bear ranch. I can say that we left the house in the same condition as we found it and received hour whole damage security deposit back. There is a charcoal grill on the property that we used several times to cook up the fresh fish we bought from one of several local fish retailers a few miles away. Thank you Jim, Esther, and the maintenance person for giving my family a very fun and memorable vacation. We hope to have the honor of renting your house again this summer :)

U.P. Michigan is our favorite vacation getaway, and this year we thought we would make life easier and try a rental home instead of camping. My husband and I were in love with this waterfront home! It was right in the middle of all the places we love, AND right on Lake Superior. The home and property were very well maintained, and it made us feel good to know we chose a clean place to stay. What did we hate most? LEAVING! Our 6 night stay was not long enough, and we are missing it already...can't wait to go there again! I really miss the quiet mornings, enjoying coffee and view of the Lake from the deck...AWESOME. Many thanks to Esther and Jim and their Caretakers for making this great dream vacation what it was.

Superior All Around!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay 8/1/14 -8/8/14 with our 7 year old son was absolutely the best, most relaxing vacation we've had. The cottage was immaculate and we had excellent, very friendly communication with the owner. What a perfect beach! We spent four of our days just lounging on the beach and exploring it and watching the freighters. It was also great to be able to BBQ lunch/dinner anytime we wanted to. The fire pit overlooking the beach was another of our favorite things. We had a bonfire every night! The yard was great (especially the swing) and very private, which is exactly what we were looking for. The location was within driving distance of all the sightseeing we wanted to do (we would have done more if we had been willing to give up our beach time:-)). If you want a great fish dinner, try the Cozy Inn in Brimley...we ate there three times. Looking forward to our 2015 vacation in Brimley!

A great place to stay. Clean, well-maintained and surprisingly well-stocked with necessities. Wonderful yard with lots of privacy and safe for the kids to play. Clean, private beach to watch the momma duck (loon?) herd her ducklings on the rock at night.

Great to be there at blueberry picking time in the back yard!

Amazing place to watch the ships float by

  • 5 of 5

We went to the UP for a long weekend and were very excited to see such a wonderful location. The backyard was huge and fire pit was right next to the lake. It was really nice to have a sandy beach area for the kids to play in and my kids love the swing. The house has everything that you will need for a vacation. Thanks for a great family vacation. We would love to come back again next year.
