WATERFALLS AT YOUR DOORSTEP, EXCELLENT FISHING, HIKING AND RELAXING AWAIT!

Baraga Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms (incl. 1 loft), 1 full bathroom (with a shower) , sleeps 6

The Tioga Falls Cabin on 80 private acres is a very unique vacation experience. Do you love to connect with nature? Have you always wanted to experience living 'off the grid'? Can you (and everyone in your group) accept the imperfections and pitfalls of what the bugs, little creatures and weather may bring to an area? As much as I would like to hope it is, the Tioga Falls Cabin isn't for everyone.

In consideration of many of my city friends level of comfort, it is a challenge to be so secluded and surrounded by nothing but the log cabin and nature itself.

Everyone in your group must be avid, authentic,outdoor-loving people. This is a technology-FREE vacation. Cell phones don't work well at all. It's not for everyone, yet absolutely IDEAL for the right people. In this environment, one unhappy or non-outdoorsy person in the group has a direct, negative impact on everyone traveling together in this secluded space.

Have you every backpacked or camped in a tent, at any point in your life? Did you love the experience? Please ask this question to everyone in your group. If your answer is yes, then this is the ideal creature comfort step-up you've been looking for. As a backpacker myself, as I age, I find myself deeply appreciating the indoor plumbing and sleeping on a standard mattress that an experience such as staying in this gorgeous, custom-crafted log cabin deep, in the U.P. woods, provides.

Sitting on the fully screened-in porch watching and listening to the soothing waterfalls below as you enjoy the amenities from home, feels as though you are truly in the heart of a wilderness oasis. Fish for trout to your heart's content. Canoe down the river. Melt into your vacation within the 80 wooded acres surrounding the cabin and take this opportunity to truly get away from it all. Drive the 2 mile 2-track trail from the main road into this peaceful log cabin. Wade in the water, hike around the property, fish and read a good book. Perfect for the family vacation that will be remembered by all. Or the romantic retreat for two. Fall asleep to the gentle sound of water falls right out your window! Your nature-loving family will love this unique, full log home to call home for a week and beg to return again. Perfect privacy and relaxation. Escape from technology, though most cell phones do work if you must turn them on. Cozy up to the wood stove with the provided wood.

Fly Fishing: The Tioga is an excellent brook trout stream with slow and fast moving sections plus beaver ponds. The Sturgeon is an excellent brown and brook trout stream.

This 80 acre property is surrounded by state forest.

Paddle down the river in the provided canoe. The Tioga River runs next to the cabin and the Sturgeon River is 1000 feet from the cabin door. There are marked trails throughout the property.

Sturgeon River: Paddle down the river in the provided canoes. The Tioga River runs next to the cabin and the Sturgeon River is 1000 feet from the cabin door. There are marked trails throughout the property.

The cabin experience, deep in the woods: After carefully driving the 2 mile 2-track rocky road toward the cabin, you will find the cabin resting perched almost on top of the soothing Tioga Falls. If you are interested in staying at the cabin, you need to keep in mind that you are actually in the wilderness. Nature abounds, creatures great and small are part of your experience. Yes, there are bugs when you explore the woods. Please bring your insect repellent. Still, the fully screened in (floor included) porch protects you inside.

The cabin is ideal for outdoorsy couples seeking romance and peace or for small families with older children who don't need to be entertained by technology, yet love to fish, explore, hike and read books, with most of the creature comforts of home. It can be challenging with more than 1 couple traveling together, as there is only 1 bedroom door. A outdoorsy couple, small outdoorsy family or a group of 6 or fewer friends have had the most positive experience at Tioga Falls

It can be a challenge if any member of your group is afraid of the sounds, sites or smells of the wilderness. Plus, everyone in your group must be able to entertain themselves (fishing, reading, exploring nature, listening to the radio) in order to enjoy the woodsy experience.

First I want to thank the owners of this cabin for sharing such a wonderful piece of mother nature with all of us. Thank-you ever so much! The Tioga falls, river, forest, and comfy cabin are absolutely a dream come true. The views are breathtaking and extremely serene, an experience I will never forget.

And I also want to thank Cara for making this trip possible and the planning easy. You have been wonderful in helping me coordinate dates for this dream of a trip at 1 year of planning! I truly appreciate all your kindness, expertise, and quick email responses answering my plethora of questions with such patience and grace. You truly are a gem Cara, really and truly! Thank you again!

My 14 year old cavalier handled the two track well, just be careful and take it slow.

My main concern with going on this trip was the wildlife, bears and wolves mainly. Thankfully I didn't see either, but I wasn't out in the woods hiking all that much either, so who knows, but when I did do out I always took the bear spray and was just aware of my surroundings. I did see a moose from afar on the main road, and that was exciting.

The cabin itself is very comfy, nicely done inside, extremely cozy and has all the modern amenities one can appreciate being out in the woods. A wonderfully equipped kitchen, nice bathroom, cozy living room and bedrooms. Love how big the cabin is, especially the openness of the high ceiling. Love love love the screened in porch! That was my favorite part since I spent many hours there every day. It gets very scary at night though, and just stayed in and stayed safe once the sun went down.

Most of my time at the cabin was spent creatively. Where I spent most of my time working on my book. I was comforted by the sights and sounds of the forest and falls/river everyday while I did such difficult writing. It was truly a wonderful blessing! The area is an artists dream & I planned on doing a lot of photography as well, but sadly my main pro camera broke shortly after I was there. That was ok because my main focus was writing, which I did and am now close to completing my first draft of my memoir. It was extremely emotional and hard work, I managed to write 150 pages in my 2 wks there. Every word and page was extremely painful emotionally, but am proud of myself & so grateful Tioga falls helped me on this journey!

I only hope I can go back again, and again, and again to do more writing, relaxing and healing.

Thanks so much Tioga fall

The cabin was amazing! My husband and I rented this cabin the week of Labor Day. We enjoyed every bit of it. The wood burner kept the cabin plenty of warm for us. We enjoyed hiking on the trails, took the canoe out for a little trip up the river. Everything was pleasant, quiet and the perfect get away from it all. Brought our beagle with us and she enjoyed all the new smells and the freedom to roam around. Plenty of things to do if you are able to relax or enjoy the great outdoors. We brought our 14' fishing boat along didn't have any problems taking it on the two track to the cabin, we did have to take it slow and so it took us about 20 minutes but without the trailer/boat it was only like 10 minutes. Hoping to have another chance to come back next year :-)

U.P. Family Vacation

This summer’s family adventure was a weeklong vacation at Tiogo Fall’s cabin. I searched for a secluded location for family bonding time with our 4 children and found the perfect location away from busy life in Ann Arbor. My husband was very worried about this adventure, but ended up enjoying it the most. The first response by everyone upon arriving was the beautiful view. The cabin was rustic enough, yet provided the modern amenities needed to be very comfortable. Our two oldest teenagers was forced to take a break from texting and anything requiring a wireless connection. It was wonderful to play chess, do puzzles, eat, and relax. Our two younger daughters learned to play chess. We took a family canoe trip and ate lunch on the narrow river looking at one of the most beautiful sceneries. We ventured towards Houghton and found a beach and a very friendly restaurant called Carla’s. One of my husband’s favorite programs is Northern Exposure and that is what he got to experience.

Cara made the reservations so easy that I didn’t start worrying about planning for it until 4 days before we were suppose to arrive. Taking a break from work, kids schedules, sports, obligations to retreat to a cabin and force everyone to slow down was wonderful. It has been almost a month since our visit: our family is closer and we adopted doing puzzles and chess regularly at home. Thank you for sharing your natures paradise. Leann, Cory, and kids

A Dream

  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Our week at the Tioga Falls cabin was exactly what we had hoped for-and more. From making our initial arrangements with Cara (so helpful and friendly) to our final drive out the two-track (tears on my part), our experience was perfect. Online descriptions and photos of this property are entirely accurate, but can't come close to the feeling of being there. The cabin was beautiful, clean, and stocked with basic necessities, as well as equipment for adventuring around the property. We felt entirely at home; the owners are very generous to share not only their cabin and land but also their beautiful canoes, which we took full advantage of. The location is wonderful-real wilderness, entirely private, yet convenient to many day-trips in the Western U.P. We did a boat tour one day at Pictured Rocks, explored the Porcupine Mountains another day, and also took a day trip to Copper Harbor-all within a couple hours of the cabin. The most fun we had, though, were the days spent at the cabin, hiking the property, canoeing the rivers there, and playing in the waterfalls. Our six-year old son had as much if not more fun than we adults did-the section of the falls upstream from the cabin ("firepit trail") were the most kid-friendly, and he had a blast playing in the stream there. As the website states, this is not the place for a family with very young children (age six was fine) as the terrain is wild, steep and rocky, but otherwise I would wholeheartedly recommend this rental to anyone who wishes to enjoy seclusion surrounded by unspoiled nature. I definitely plan to return someday. My only concern is that we may have just had the perfect vacation, it will certainly be hard to top it.

My husband and I and our Brittany Spaniel, Ally stayed here over the 4th of July week. Very remote, private, and the views are amazing! The cabin itself was very comfortable and clean. The pictures online don't do it justice. The falls are right there in front of the cabin which offer amazing views and the sound of the falls is so relaxing. The screened in porch was so nice in the evenings or during the day when it was too hot to sit on the outdoor patio. They pretty much have everything you need there...just bring your food and drink and you will be all set! We loved all the marked trails through the woods, and the canoes that we could use. If you just want to get away from it all, this is the place for you! If you stayed at the cabin all week without leaving, you would never come across another person all week...total privacy which we loved!! We for sure hope to make it back there again next year!

At the meeting of the Tioga Falls and the Sturgeon River, just 2 miles North of US 41 on a 2-track road. The 2-track road is hilly, rocky and uneven. While in comparison to most 2-track roads in the UP, the 2-track is in pretty good condition (and excellent for running or mountain biking). Still, it requires caution as you venture into the cabin. A truck or SUV is the recommended mode of transportation. A perfect place to get away from it all. Search google.maps for 'Tioga Falls' - the cabin is next to the falls! Enjoy the 80 acres with many acres of State land to explore too. ATV and snowmobiling trails are near.

Other Activities: Hiking, mountain biking (2 bikes provided), and soaking in the cool pools of the Tioga River and Falls. The terrain is not easy, so traditional swimming is not to be expected. This is a wonderful, unique adventure-filled natural vacation spot.

Notes:
The cabin is not child-proof. Also, some of the surrounding areas are rocky and may be unsuitable for very young children. Dogs are possible, ask when booking. Extra security deposit. Cell service is very spotty, though better outdoors vs. inside the cabin. The service depends on service provider. Based on our experience, Verizon, T-Mobile, Altel and AT&T have been ok. Sprint is almost nonexistant. NOTE: This cabin is 'off the grid' which means it is solar powered with a quiet generator backup. The system will provide normal electricity except that electric hair dryers and other electric heating devices can not be used. The refrigerator runs on propane gas, as does the stove, hot water heater, and gas lights. Basic energy conservation - turning off lights and not letting water run - is required for staying in the cabin.
