Staying at this hidden gem in the north woods. Comfortable log bed. We are here to visit my grandparents. They came over last night and we had a nice visit in the living room. Tomorrow doing some sightseeing and shopping.i'm going to hate to leave.

Little Bear Cabin, baraga, Michigan

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Little Bear cabin. It's quite rustic and with just enough essentials to make the stay easy and cozy. We especially enjoyed the jacuzzi, a lovely quirky treat of the cabin. We enjoyed the gentle bay in our back yard, being able to sit in sun and water simultaneously was fun. Grilling each evening and sitting in the mosquito netted canopy was great. We went out to photograph the full moon and next day's sunrise across the lake above L'Anse. We had very much fun at Little Bear Cabin.

Rustic yes, but need of maintenance and Cleaning

  • 2 of 5

Yes, it was rustic and advertised as such. However a good cleaning and extermination would be beneficial. Spiders were abundant. One crawled down my shoulder in bed, two were on the shower curtain. Mice shared my breakfast roll. Lots of knick knacks around but have cob webs and dust over them. If you have a compromised immune system, the bottom logs of the Cabin are rotting and mold underneath. We couldn't get the air conditioning to work, I had both units running and still sweat the night away. I am used to camping rustic in a tent ect. but this place still bothered me. The View, back yard and lay out is nice. Expected the road noise but that didn't bother us. Nice swimming with a sandy bottom. With some maintenance and cleaning would be worth the cost.

Owner's Response: As to the air conditioning not working, I found a window open so it wouldn[t work properly with outside air coming in. the portable unit is new. I have hired a new cleaning person. cabin sprayed for spiders again so problem resolved. mice traps set with nothing in them for a full week so no sign of mice. bottom log needs to be replaced but difficult to do with constant guests. it is scheduled for replacement in the next few weeks when lodging season ends. no mold observed just an old log. lots of melodrama here. it is a cabin in the northwoods. I want guests comfortable. I addressed every item and will continue to strive to caretake this little old log cabin in the pines. all the other reviews were so complimentary it is really a matter of taste.

If road noise and dirt doesn't bother you, it's a perfect getaway.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin looks just like in the photos and we easily fit our family of 5. The bathroom was roomy, clean, and nice. The sheets and towels were clean. We loved the back yard with the fire pit and the private beach area for the kids. We didn't except the road to be literally right next to the cabin (as in read people's GPS screens if you look out the bathroom window) but, if you tune out the road noise, it is a great property. We slept with the skylight open, which was wonderful but probably added to the road noise. The ad said there would be a cot for an additional person, there was not. Our 16-year old had to sleep in the recliner (which was very nice but not as nice for spending an entire night in). A cot was provided the next day after email contact. We did not have a phone number for the owner and had to google her when an emergency came up, luckily we found a number that worked. Wi-Fi was a plus as cell phone coverage is sparse in the area. The cabin does need to be cleaned more thoroughly - there was a layer of dust/dirt in many areas and the kitchen cabinets were very dirty - we cleaned everything before using. On the other hand, the kitchen was nicely stocked in terms of electrical appliances. We brought our own waffle maker. There was a nice fridge/freezer in the bedroom. The location is perfect for visiting several attractions: 1h to Porcupine, 1.5h to Cooper Harbor, and 1.5h to Marquette.

Perfect stop for an evening or weekend get away. Everything one needs in a rustic shoreline setting.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Thursday afternoon and we're welcomed by Superiors waves lapping the picturesque shoreline. The parking was ample and pine tree laden drive seemed to whisper "Welcome" as we unloaded our vehicle and let our two dogs (which were welcome at Little Bear) out for a stretch.

The evening spent on Superior's shoreline and in the cloudlike bed Little Bear provides, prepared us for our remaining weekend traveling the beautiful Keweenaw peninsula. The easy on, easy off access to Hwy 41 cannot be topped! Rent the Little Bear today!

Better than a hotel!

  • 4 of 5

The old log cabin looks nice, on the inside and out, and has a lot of good amenities and character. The furniture is comfortable, and the big bathroom with whirlpool tub is a bonus. It's a wooded private lot with a lot of shoreline, and a pretty view. There were plenty of towels, dinnerware, soaps, etc. The Drive In across the road was easy to get to, and the food was good. Internet access was a little slow, and the cable channels and reception are limited (but you shouldn't be there for those things anyway). We brought our dogs on the trip, and it was a great space for them. You will see in other reviews online, as well as reading the guest journal in the cabin, that the traffic noise is very noticeable. The skylight above the bed acted as a megaphone for the traffic noise and we couldn't keep it open at night. All in all, a nice place, and we're glad we visited.
