U.P. OFF-THE-BEATEN-TRACK LOG CABIN ON PRIVATE, PRISTINE, 70 ACRE, NO-WAKE LAKE

Dickinson County Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 7 comfortably

Fully furnished log cabin located on a small, beautiful, private no-wake lake. The cabin, with its rustic charm, offers all the modern conveniences of home (dishwasher, washer and dryer, microwave, etc). The furnace is propane hot water heat with a traditional wood fireplace in the living room along with a woodstove in the dining room to ease the chill on cool nights. The cabin gives the impression of a hunting lodge atmosphere with numerous wall mounts of wild game such as deer, fish, otter, bobcat, wolf, bear, grouse, and elk. A spacious platform deck faces the lakeside with a large grassy yard surrounding the cabin. The walk to the lake edge is about 50 ft. and flat (very senior citizen friendly) with a sandy beach area. A 14 ft. fishing boat with oars and four life-jackets, two kayaks, and a paddle boat are provided. No gas motors are allowed on the lake. The lake is pure and chemical free with primarily bluegills and bass. Fishing is exceptional!

Included with the cabin is a two stall unattached garage available for guests to use. The cabin is four miles off a main highway, and the trek in is a paved dead-end road. Three words describe the setting of this cabin: peaceful, relaxing, and awe-inspiring. The natural scenic beauty lends itself to an abundance of wildlife with beautiful sunrises/sunsets. Location of this cabin is only 20 miles north from downtown Iron Mountain/Kingsford where you will find restaurants,shopping, golf courses, biking/hiking trails, museums, etc. It is also within a short driving distance to many waterfalls, parks, and special scenic attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was beautiful weather during our stay. Your place is decorated beautifully and you had ample equipment/supplies to cook and shower. We appreciated the use of all the outside equipment (kayaks, floats, boat, paddle boat, etc). Take Care and God Bless!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 6, and everyone had an awesome time. Very peaceful and quiet location. The fishing was excellent. We saw an abundance of wildlife all week long. Deer walking across our beach just about every morning. Loons swimming and diving in the lake every day. The cabin itself is beautiful and well equipped. A beautiful vacation spot for anyone looking for a peaceful quiet getaway.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
This was just such a great retreat. It is much larger than the pictures depict, and yet it is very cozy. We had a wonderful time, and just loved the beach, the quiet lake, and the warm, clean "cabin".

The fishing was great, and everyone didn't want to leave!

Definitely recommend this property to anyone!

We will be back, hopefully, soon!

Great vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5
Overall, we had a great time!! The cabin was adorable and was the perfect space for our family of 6. We LOVED the lake. It is relatively small and shallow, which made is great for the kids. It was so great to be in a place where I was comfortable letting my 8 yr old go out in the kayak alone! (That never would have happened on a larger lake with speedboats, etc . . . ) My 9 year old caught her first fish and was so proud of herself! My 12 & 14 year olds loved the kayaks. The kitchen was very well equipped (much better than I expected.) The furniture is slightly different than in the pictures (nicer!) There were really only 2 things that I was disappointed with. Water pressure in the main bathroom was really bad. Showering in there was a joke, so all 6 of us used the shower in the master bedroom. (Actually, it would have been really nice to have a bathroom upstairs - but that wasn't a big deal.) The other thing was the lack of communication possibilities. There was no WiFi (though that didn't surprise me as it wasn't on the listing) and there was no landline. My cell (Virgin Mobile) didn't get service anywhere in the UP, so it was completely useless. My husband's cell (Verizon) got some signal, but it was very spotty unless he got in the van and drove out to the road. So, that made it difficult to make any plans. There were brochures in the cabin (which was great) but they all require you to call or check out a website for details. So that was disappointing. But, other than that, we had a very relaxing and comfortable time. The weather was awesome! (Bug spray is a MUST - the mosquitoes nearly carried away our youngest ;) ) The kids loved the "tunnels" upstairs (it's actually storage space that is empty along the walls, but they sure loved crawling through it!) The animals on the walls were great! Very rustic and interesting (also a hit with the kids.) Overall a great stay!

Owner's Response: Bush Lake is a beautiful spot that is very remote. Cell phone reception may be difficult for some guests because towers are so far apart in the U.P. Reception is better on the dock or out on the main paved road (.2 mile) from the cabin. Unfortunately, there is no WiFi provided because it is a rustic vacation home where guests can disconnect from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives and enjoy the beauty of the setting and the variety of lake activities. We are following up with the water pressure concern in the main bathroom.

Way beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival we were greeted by caretakers, Ann & Vance (nice couple) they gave us information about the property and the surrounding area (restaurants, shopping, etc.) We loved the lake! Private beach right out our back door, off a beautiful deck. We used the kayaks, paddle boat & row boat everyday of our stay. We even cooked smores at the fire pit at night. As the kids would say, THIS IS AWESOME!!! We all (family of 5) had a wonderful time. This property is beautiful! Very clean, lots of room and provided anything you needed. Truly a home away from home, only better!
Thanks

Awesome, restful, fun place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin and property was very clean and well-maintained. My grandson enjoyed looking at the animals and bear rug on the walls in the cabin! My kids had a lot of fun on the lake with the kayaks and going fishing. The surrounding towns weren't too far away when we wanted or needed to shop. We even went to several of the many gorgeous waterfalls in the U.P. On one of our walks down Bush Lake Road, we saw a deer and two baby fawns about 30 feet ahead of us that stopped to stare at us! I would highly recommend this cabin as a great place to stay!

Several landmarks in Dickinson County highlight pieces of history related to the area. Quite a few abandoned iron ore mine sites in the area are open to the public and provide a fascinating glimpse into the past. One of the most interesting remnants of the mining era is the Cornish Pumping Engine, the largest steam engine ever built in North America. The 50-foot-high pump, which may be visited in Iron Mountain, was used to remove water from the Chapin Mine, the area's most productive iron mine. Another landmark in Dickinson County is the Pine Mountain Ski Jump, near Iron Mountain. Well-known for its annual mid-February tournaments, Pine Mountain is, at 932 feet, the longest ski jump in the world.

The Bush Lake area also offers a 'world of outside recreation.' There are an unlimited, amazing number of outside activities that you could participate in; from hiking, to fishing, to golfing, to swimming. Several state campgrounds (Carney Lake, VanRiper, and Bewabic), roadside parks/wildlife areas, and other nearby county and city parks are within close driving distance from Bush Lake.

Some of the most magnificent sights to encounter in the area are the mighty waterfalls. In Dickinson County alone, within a 30 mile radius, there are (5) breathtaking waterfalls, and also closeby in the Crystal Falls area, as many as (8) magestic waterfalls to take in. The voice of the water will never leave you; it is the underlying theme of the area.
