  • Wonderful Home


    We had a lovely stay on the lake. On the property we saw all kinds of wonderful wild life including hummingbirds, deer, and turkeys. The view of the lake is peaceful and the sunsets are very pretty. The night sky was gorgeous with a zillion stars. We spent a lot of time out and about but could have easily spent the whole week on the deck. One warning though the walk down to the water is very steep. It makes for a lovely view but is not fun to walk up or down for grandma.

    We had a great time staying here. Very good central location to explore the Upper Peninsula. Lake and cottage are fantastic. Host was extremely nice and helpful on what’s to offer in the area!

    It's nice tucked away and very quiet place to stay. Clean and newly redone it appears. Great for a peaceful getaway or kayaking and seeing local upper peninsula sites.
