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.
