About Catherine Helwig

We have skied from this house for over 20 years and continue to have great adventures in the Upper Penninsula with our growing children, family and friends. It is owned by 4 people/2 couples from the Madison area. We enjoy our property year round! Our Ramsay Retreat is the perfect, affordable, get-a-way to relax, rejuvinate and be in nature!

Catherine Helwig purchased this house in 2003

Why Catherine Helwig chose Big Powderhorn

This property is located just minutes from the areas best 3 ski hills, miles of snowmobile trails - 1 block out the back door. Friends passed it on to us after allowing us to enjoy it with their family as they grew up.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to area, low cost compared to most others that sleeps 12 or more.

Floridian Ski Vacation

We enjoyed our visit to the Ramsay Retreat. It was convenient to many locations, since we had both cross country and Big Powderhorn as destinations. Winter/ski decor was cute (wondering if it switches over in the non-snow months?), kitchen well-equipped, bedding comfortable. Parking area was cleared, and instructions and communication was terrific. I slept like a log because it was so very quiet! Only improvement would be to get the wood stove repaired for use! Our accommodations were as fine as that of my cousin, who was staying at Big Powderhorn, for a fraction of the cost. Great place for large groups or a family to explore the whole area. Thanks!

Great location for outdoor enthusiasts

  • 5 of 5
Our first winter visit to the Ironwood area was an amazing success. Being just minutes from a variety of skiing and snowboarding resorts makes this an ideal winter adventure location.
The hills and staff at Powderhorn and Indianhead were terrific. We'll be making this location an annual family trip for certain!
The house was a perfect fit for our crew which included four boys. This cabin has ample space with 3 bedrooms, 2 sets of bunkbeds and two baths. We appreciated how thoroughly the kitchen cupboards were stocked, all the extra personal touches of spices, candles, toys and games as well as the fun array of movies for the family.
We very much look forward to returning to Ramsay Retreat again this summer to enjoy the mountain biking, hiking and kayaking opportunities that seem to be around every corner!

I would have prefered a couch rather than a futon in the living room but all in all the place was fine. Great location to the ski areas. We enjoyed our stay.

We loved our stay at the Ramsay Retreat! First off it is so conveniently located for all our needs.
I like to cross country ski while my husband and children like their fast downhill skiing. The Ramsay Retreat was just a short drive for us all to have our fun and still meet for lunch. At night we could drive to town for pizza or shopping in the nearby towns without boring the kids with a long drive.
The little home was very clean when we arrived and had a stocked kitchen for baking and also condiments,spices and oils for simple cooking. At the end of a fun day outdoors we all slept soundly in the comfortable and warm beds.
We would recommend the Ramsay Retreat to all!!!
