My family are long-time U.P. residents who settled here in the early 1800s. I've spent a lifetime in the U.P. - both to the West (Keeweenaw area) and East to the Mackinac area and Canada. This is the most beautiful area and is as natural as it gets. So much to do and see that is not available anywhere else and I love all the water.
Marty Moore Sr purchased this cottage in 1998
This cottage is unique - especially on this lake. The lake, spring fed, is pure and chemical free. Many homes are occupied all year long. This cottage is unique in that it is set deep in a cove - completely surrounded by deep woods - extremely private where no one can see you. The yard is vast - big enough to throw balls long distances - the water warms up quickly with the air-temperature. Fishing is great, even from the pier. The sand beach is joy for children to play in and the cottage itself has all the amenities of any home - laundry, appliances, softened water, full kitchen, phone service. The only difference is, you relax, we do the work - we clean and sanitize it like no other, child-guards are on all cupboards, air-conditioning when it is needed (not often in the northwoods) and it is near enough to the necessities of groceries, fuel, churches and restaurants.
The seclusion itself is the most commented item. Pure and private relaxation - rest in the hammock, sit on the 2 deck swings, have a fire going on the shoreline in the firepit or just sunbathe in the yard on the lawn or sand. We provide 2 kayaks and a pedal-pontoon craft for you to roam the lake and many coves. We provide all safety items, flotation devices and water-entertainment items like inner-tubes. It is quiet - no nearby neighbors or noises. City lights are far away and the stars rest like clouds all the way to the horizon at night - absolutely breathtaking on a clear night. The sky explodes at night in orange color and the air is a pure as it can get. Out comments have always been 5-star for enjoyment, cleanliness and attention to detail.
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.
This is my dream cottage for retirement. The amenities and the ambiance is amazing. The stars at night were amazing. No visible neighbors and such privacy. Being from the greater Chicagoland area, this is a true escape from that environment! We love Michigan and visit every year and hope to make it our place for retirement. Everywhere we went we were welcomed. The food at T&T Supper Club is superb. You must visit. The Silver Lake Resort down the street is such a comfort as well. Very special place. Very clean. Excellent fried chicken! The UP IS..... Pure Michigan.
This place is a secret charm and what a way to get away from it all.
We searched for a vacation place that would offer boating, swimming, nature, and privacy in clean and chemical free surroundings and that especially would accept our whole family which includes 2 dogs!! We hit the jackpot at Moose Bay on Sawyer Lake! No worries about our dogs barking at people or people having concerns about our dogs. No worries about chemicals on the lawn or in the lake (or in the house). We loved it! We all played, swam, boated, relaxed and will certainly come again. Not much business in Channing, but what is there had friendly, helpful people. THANKS FOR ALLOWING DOGS!!
As soon as you pull into the secluded drive relaxation hits you. Entering the cabin you find everything just as described and perfectly maintained. The yard is great for bare feet and playing. The lake is excellent fun for fishing, especially little ones! My 2yr old caught her first fish here! If you are looking for quality family time, away from the busy distraction of every day life I highly recommend booking Moose Bay. The lake isn't great for swimming, unless you don't mind the weeds but between the paddle boat and kayaks there is plenty of water activities to be had.
Iron Mountain is very close, so if you need a night out there's lots to do.
Truly a pleasure to stay here
Our stay at Moose Bay Cottage was perfect. The cottage was spotless, and to our pleasant surprise, very well stocked. Towels, linens, a full library of recent dvd's (in case the weather does not permit you to be outside)
The property was more well kept than some homes I've seen.
If you are considering a "rental vacation" for the first time, you can put any fears to rest with Moose Bay Cottage. All of the needs have been met here.
2 kayaks and a paddle boat will help maintain your gym routine.
Marty Moore (owner) was always very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had.
Thanks again Marty
This home was SUPER clean and me and my family spent 7 days. There is a LOT to do and had a relaxing time soaking up nature. The cabin was just as described and the owners were extremely generous and even left chocolates and wine with a welcome note. My kids had a blast and cried when we left.
My family and I had a wonderful time here at Moose Bay Cottage. It was everything these owners said it would be. Very clean and cozy. I would love to be up there in the fall, I'm sure it's amazing! Marty was very accommodating, with directions and instructions for everything! We would definetly stay here again. Thanks again, Donna Hale and family....
