Upper Peninisula Home Base

  • 5 of 5

The location of this great house in the heart of Michigan's Upper Peninsula allowed us to explore national forests and Lake Superior and Lake Michigan's shores. The house itself is very clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. It was the perfect size for our family of 4. The views of Nevins Lake are gorgeous and there is even fish in there. HIghly recommended!

lots of fun and happy memories!

  • 4 of 5

We had a pretty big group with two small children, two small dogs, and six adults! But there was plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. The house was cozy and had a cute decor; the kids kept themselves busy with various coloring books on the shelf (thanks for that!). It rained for two days but we made the best of a bad situation and hiked through mud and saw beautiful waterfalls and plenty of greenery. Don't forget to take advantage of the paddle boat! We also did some fishing off the dock. Overall, this place great for a family vacation and everyone had a wonderful time!

Minor suggestions for the property owner: the path from the backyard to the dock was uneven (and a little scary for the kids) therefore it would be great if you could fix that so more people can enjoy the beautiful lake. A bench would be awesome! Also, the screen door was frustrating, it kept getting stuck.

Owner's Response: Kunga, thank you so much for staying at our home and taking a moment to share your thoughts. I am so glad you had a wonderful stay and were even able to make good days out of the rainy ones! The walkway to the lake has been a challenge for us thanks to some neighborhood beavers and their home they built, but we are making plans to address this. This was the first year we had an issue like this and we do plan on rebuilding the dock and making a nice boardwalk pathway down to the lake. I am happy to see you enjoyed the paddle boat anyways! Thanks again, Kunga, hope to have you as a guest again sometime!

Beautiful view and very quiet.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay. Very quiet and relaxing. Coffee on the deck listening to the loons was just awesome. We will definitely book again whenever we make it back to the UP.

The best spot to rent a cabin in the area - close to Pictured Rocks, Grand Marais and Munising

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. It was me, my wife, my daughter and my dog.

There's everything you could possibly want here including Lake Side, in the Woods, far away from everything but still within reach of services. There are all amenities here including satellite tv, wifi, land line phone, 1 full bathroom and extra shower room, two bedrooms, full kitchen with all the goodies, dishwasher, garbage disposal, etc.

If you come during winter months there's a wonderful wood burning stove to keep you warm on the chilly nights and they keep the driveway cleared often.

There's space if you have a trailer full of snowmobiles too. Lots of back up areas and a circular driveway next door.

Wonderful view of the lake here, what a great place!
