A perfect waterfront cabin

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here for a week in the beginning of July. When we arrived the cabin was very clean. You could tell that Bruce the owner takes a lot of pride in this cabin. Everything it showed in the listing was accurate. Dealing with Bruce was easy. He seemed very professional and sincere. The property that the cabin is on is awesome. The view of the waterway from the deck was so nice. It is an ideal location, close to town yet still felt secluded. We enjoyed sightseeing around the Keeweenaw peninsula a few days and we spent some days just hanging out at the cabin. My daughters enjoyed the swimming beach.They also enjoyed playing in the loft. My wife and I enjoyed the peacefulness of the outdoors here. We also enjoyed canoeing on the waterway. We also loved the campfire area. In the future I can only hope I can find other properties as perfect as the cordwood cabin here in Houghton. Thanks again Bruce and family for providing an excellent setting for making family vacation memories!

So much more than the description!

  • 5 of 5
The cordwood Cabin far exceeded our expectations! Our visit was primarily to celebrate our son's graduation from MTU, but was so much more because of this beautiful, well-maintained, and well-equipped cabin. Our hosts could not have been more gracious making sure that, even at this early point in the Spring season, that the outdoor furnishings were available for our use. The cabin itself is a labor of love between father and daughter, a story worth reading while you are visiting. In addition, the view of the Portage provided us with the privilege of watching the "pet" loons that seemed to enjoy the peace and watching the transformation of ice to Spring ready. The location was ideal for getting to MTU, shopping, restaurants, and the greater Keweenaw. We will be back!

A very unique cabin

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful cabin with a great location. Close to Houghton with a country setting.The kitchen was better equipped with matching equipment and dishware than we have at home! We even had a lovely wildflower bouquet on the table when we arrived. All the bed and bath linens you could ask for. The loft would make me nervous with children younger than about 4 yrs old but it can be gated off. The rope net and cable hand rail and loft wall would be too tempting for any smaller child to resist climbing. Since our kids are all in college, it was wonderful and airy.

Cordwood Cabin is Awesome

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Keweenaw Cordwood Cabin last week. Besides having perfect weather the whole week, the whole experience was perfect. The accomodations are spotless, very up to date, and comfortable. The views of the water in the morning will stay with us for a long time. The property is close enough to town to either drive or boat in 15 minutes. We went into Houghton for breakfast by boat which was a great time. The beach, dock, and calm waters of the Portage were a perfect setting for the week. To be honest, we would not change a thing.

Relaxing Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Cordwood cabin when our youngest son graduated from Michigan Tech this last weekend. It was the most relaxing time that we have ever spent in Houghton. The cabin was neat and clean and fully stocked with everything that we needed. There was plenty of room and the pictures don't fully express the charm of the property. The view is great and we even saw two eagles flying over the cabin. We also saw deer and a coyote in the field behind the cabin one evening.
The cabin is very private but is only a 5 minute drive to town. Grocery shopping, restaurants and hiking trails are all nearby. We spent time hiking to local waterfalls and really enjoyed it!
The only regret that we have is that we did not find this property earlier. It was far more enjoyable than any of the hotels that we have stayed in the last few years. Do not hesitate to book this cabin!

Map

The Cordwood Cabin is located on the Keweenaw Waterway about 5 miles west of Houghton and 5 miles east of Lake Superior. The Waterway stretches 26 miles across the base of the Keweenaw Peninsula and provides deep water access to Lake Superior at each end. The passenger ship to Isle Royale National Park passes in front of the cabin several times each week and freighters also often pass by as they traverse the Waterway. A bridge at Houghton provides access to the Keweenaw Peninsula which juts about 40 miles into Lake Superior and is home to numerous major tourist attractions. The rich mining history of the region is highlighted by the National Historic Park headquartered at Calumet. At the tip of the Peninsula are Copper Harbor and Brockway Mountain, Fort Wilkins, Keweenaw Mountain Lodge and Golf Course, lighthouse tours, lakes, rivers, trails, and islands. Boating, deepsea fishing, stream fishing, sailing, canoeing and sea kayaking are popular around the Peninsula and harbors.

Other Activities: Sea Kayaking, Deep Water Fishing
