Absolutely Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week with our 5 kids. This cabin wound up being one of our favorite vacations ever! The actual cabin was like Pottery Barn meets the UP. It was so well done and well maintained. My 2 younger girls had an adorable room and I would sit on the porch every morning and drink my coffee looking at Lake Superior. Complete privacy, the water is protected by the bay and we had great swimming. They even had a paddle boat we took to some nearby cliffs. We went to a fish fry at the a Thunder Bay Inn, rented kayaks from Big Bay Outfitters and explored Marquette, about 30 minutes away. We loved the quiet peaceful setting and how modern the cabin was given the somewhat remote location . Our 5 kids thought it was the best cabin ever, and last year we stayed in a 4,000 s.f luxury log cabin in St. Ignace. This was better!
