WATERFRONT CEDAR CABIN COMPLETE WITH SAUNA

Marquette Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our cabin is 20 years old. It was built by the original owner who was a carpenter and the owner of a mill. His attention to detail and craftsmanship are over the top. If you appreciate woodwork you’ll love our cabin. Fishing on the lake offers pike, walleye, perch and bass to name a few. A couple of years ago someone caught a 47” inch pike (at least this is what I’m told.)

Keywords: Cabin, waterfront, year round, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, sauna,

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only

I own a film production company that specializes in commercials in Chicago. I’ve produced independent movies as well. I’m married to a school teacher and we have two kids. When I’m not driving kids around I coach my son’s soccer team in the fall, always a good time.

Ed Amaya purchased this cabin in 2000

We live in Chicago and my wife is from the area. We wanted a place of our own to stay when we visited family and friends because we had children who were 4 and 2 at that time. We figured that the cabin would help us build memories to cherish as we all got older. In fact during our last visit my wife and I overheard our kids talking to each other about memories of the first pig roast we had at the cabin. That really brought a smile to our faces. Beyond this we loved the location. While it’s nestled in the woods on a lake we are close to relatives, shopping and more importantly a Starbucks. If you go in the opposite direction you go deeper into the woods where you can find fishing streams and waterfalls. All the properties on the lake have an acre of land so you have separation from the neighbors. It’s a very quiet getaway.

From the minute you step out of your car you smell the clean air of the U.P., a distinctly woodsy smell. Rarely do you see planes flying overhead. Once inside the cabin you’ll marvel at the view of the lake. As I always say, “the view alone is worth the price of admission.” With each passing day you’re able to sleep in a little longer because the area is so peaceful. There is even a nesting pair of eagles that live on the basin.

We recently traveled to the beautiful UP for a weekend getaway/wedding. The cabin was the perfect distance from town, secluded and very well maintained. We had a 1 year old with us for the weekend and the cabin layout was perfect for her to room without worry. We will definitely be staying here again in the near future!

Great memories!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this wonderful house twice. The first time was about 8 years ago and then again for just after Christmas 2012. We actually took pictures of the kids on the stairs both times as a "then" and "now". This last time, we got delayed because of a snow storm. We have family in the area and this house was perfect! We have a lot of kids and our oldest was living in Marquette at the time. He has since moved to Tampa! While it isn't possible for us to return this year, we are hoping we can return for another winter vacation. We loved how close we were to Marquette, skiing, sledding and yet still felt so deep in the woods. The owners were absolutely fantastic to work with both times and even helped us with our delayed arrival. The kitchen is awesome and well equipped for family dinners. The house is cozy yet there were plenty of spaces for everyone to go. We really hope to go back someday. The pictures on this site don't do it justice. Link to the website as those picture give a better idea of how beautiful the property is. It is even more impressive in person! Thank you so much for all the great memories. PS. The review form would not allow us to an arrival date more than 6 months ago for a review so we just entered yesterdays date.

Gorgeous, secluded spot

  • 5 of 5
Our family from lower Michigan and northern Wisconsin planned a weekend in the UP, and we'd rented a cottage from someone else. Two days before we were supposed to arrive, their pipes burst, leaving us scrambling to find another rental. Luckily Ed's cottage was available, and he graciously allowed us to cram 7 adults and 2 kids into the space at the last minute! Turns out it wasn't crammed at all- for such a cozy-looking house, there is PLENTY of space inside, and the house is lovely. Roads and driveway were completely plowed, and porch/walk were shoveled before we arrived. However, a few of the roads were icy- bring your 4WD in winter if possible. We had a 2WD van, and made it in and out, but a few spots in the road were nervous-making. The kids LOVED the loft and all the games that we found there. The adults loved the sauna! We shoveled our way down and found it LOVELY and very clean. Beds were very comfortable; we all slept well. Two beds are in a loft that would be open to main-floor noise (e.g. kitchen, front and side door), but it worked out fine. We relegated late-nighters to the separate living room in the finished basement, where they shut the door, and everyone got the privacy they needed. The kitchen is VERY well supplied- we didn't know what to expect and brought our own pots and pans and knives; totally unnecessary. Very nice knives, heavy duty cookware, toaster and toaster oven, large coffee pot and coffee grinder (and filters in the cupboard above), and even spices and cooking oils. I'm not sure if these are normally kept stocked or if the last renters left them, but it was a nice surprise. (We could not, however, find a cutting board- good thing we brought one!) Also nice surprise: 4 pair of resident snowshoes! We ended up spending more time sledding and xc skiing (trailhead just a few miles down the road). Large washer and dryer in bathroom. GREAT selection of family games in every room! Highly recommended to anyone visiting the Marquette/Negaunee area. Note:Be sure to turn Right TWICE onto 510 (you turn onto 510, then you have to turn right again onto 510 before turning onto Neejee). Googlemap it before you go, and look carefully for road signs!

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. It was more than we expected. We wanted to stay again this year but we had to go a week earlier and it was booked. A beautiful lovely little house on the outside and big on the inside. A place you definitely need to experience. Thanks so much for sharing your home. We definitely plan to rent again.
