This cabin was the perfect setting and much more than comfortable for six adults and three children. We came from Wisconsin, Michigan and New York for a family get-together and this cabin was the perfect place to spend time as a family.
Bill and I arrived @ Moose Bay Cottage on 9/23/12. We were so excited to be there finally! The cottage was great and The Moore's are wonderful generous people. The cottage was totally equipted with everything we needed and the view was awesome. We had a very relaxing time. It rained everyday so we just did many road trips and the scenery was breathtaking. Pictured Rocks was amazing as was Porcupine Mountains in the Western part of the UP. We cooked mostly but we did go the pub in Channing called the Aces for the Friday fish fry which was excellent, and also for breakfast at the Silver Lake Diner which was yummy. (homemade bread) . We tried our luck @ the casino in Escanaba and did well for only being there a short time. We put 2400 miles on our rental car in 8 days! Thanks again to the Moore's for opening up their cottage to us! Definitely worth the trip!
Not even sure where to begin! Our time at the cottage exceeded our expectations. It is exceptionally clean and comfortable. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. And the experience was one that we will not soon forget.
We fished off the pier daily, and let me tell you, the fish are biting. I don't think we had to wait more than 5 minutes to get one on the lines!
The property is massive, we had to get creative on how utilize it (we don't get that type of land in our neck of the woods). At one point we had a foot race around the yard just so the opportunity wouldn't go to waste.
We spent our nights at the fire pit near the lake, playing games and laughing, listening to the coyotes/wolves howl across the lake and staring at the stars in absolute awe (heads up- the bats are in abundance but they keep their distance and entertaining to watch!)
The kayaks and paddleboat were used daily. Though it was quite the work out for some of us, it was peaceful to be out in the middle of the calm bay.
The property is totally secluded, which was honestly the selling point for us. We did run into some of the locals at times, though, and even went into town for a fish fry. Everyone we met in this small town was nice and friendly.
We took walks in the forest surrounding the property a lot. It was amazing to explore, we felt like pioneers!!
Overall, this home and our time in Channing, MI was the perfect relaxing getaway!! We’re going to try to make it our tradition to get up there every summer!
The listing and photos of Moose Bay Cottage don't do it justice. Extremely clean, well taken care of and full of those welcoming little things that make a vacation memorable. The owners of this beautiful spot have done everything to make you comfortable enough that you never need to leave the cottage to enjoy your vacation but if you do the extra information they've so kindly left is so organized that the only challenge our family had was deciding what we wanted to do! Thank you so much for an amazing family vacation- my teenage boys are already talking about when we can schedule another time to go back!
We had an excellent time fishing. My kids caught a ton of panfish, bass, and pike. We enjoyed the iron mine tour. Went swimming in Lake Superior at little presque isle beach and saw the fireworks in Marquette. We did go to the DeYoung family zoo in Wallace which was a little bit of a drive but well worth it. We also hiked along the Menominee river at Piers Gorge. If the kids were older we would have done the white water rafting.
All in all we had an excellent time. It was also the cleanest cabin we ever stayed in.
Wouldn't change a thing. Extremely clean, all amenities mentioned are available, nice location, gorgeous lake, and good restaurants nearby. Owners provide many nice touches throughout and make it an enjoyable stay. Lots of wildlife. Received deposit back promptly. Highly recommend. A++++
Marty is a detailed oriented host and we found everything he promised, and more. Cottage is comfortable with two bedrooms and all utilities needed for a comfortable and relaxing get-a-way. Paddleboat was fun but also necessary to get out into the lake to be able to swim. The shorefront is very soft, shallow and usable for fishing, stargazing and nice evening fires under the stars. Distances to restaurants are a good way from the cottage, except for the one about 3 miles up Rt 95, which had good food. This is a perfect place for a quiet vacation of reading, relaxing, bicycling and card playing with friends, or for hunting. View from the dock and deck had great sunsets. Cottage is clean and very well cared for by Marty. About 32 miles away on Rt 69 going East we found the Milltown Inn. It has wonderful Swedish style pancakes with Boysenberry syrup as well as good regular breakfasts. It can also be reached on a more scenic and hilly route by turning East at the BP station 7 miles South of the cottage onto Leeman Road and then turning right after it Intersects with Norway Lake Road, and then left when you get to Rt 69. Cottage was well stocked with CD's and videos. Cell phone worked in the East bedroom. Fumee falls and lake are worth a visit, just East of Iron Mountain off Rt 2, North side of the road. Not far from them is a public spring with good cold water near the roadside. Spring is on the same side of the road as the waterfalls. The guys bicycled 332 miles during our stay, three times to the Milltown Inn.
North on US-141/US-2 through Iron Mountain Mich to North side; Mich-95 crosses at that point - go north (right) on M-95 21 miles to Channing - then 2 miles past town to Kimberly Lane. Left on Kimberly to end of road - right at the Tee - to end of Cul-de-sac into Driveway marked MOORE.
