  • Bedrooms4

  • Minimum Stay2 - 7 nights

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Rent this entire two story duplex located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula just 20 minutes west of St. Ignace (near Brevort). This home offers a spectacular view of Lake Michigan's north shore. There are rudimentary stone steps leading down to the water (no beach left thanks to erosion as of 2017) on the other side of US 2, but beaches are accessible all along US2.

Satellite TV and, as of 2017 season, internet is now available!

This duplex is ideal for large families, or 2 small families, and offers a 2 bedroom 1st floor (1 Queen, 1 Full) with spacious living room w/sofa, comfortably sleeping up to 4 people. The second floor has 2 bedrooms (both Queen) and a spacious kitchen/living room w/Futon and will comfortably sleep up to 6. The upstairs and downstairs have separate entrances, offering both the kids and adults the privacy they desire.

The duplex is easy to get to, located on West US 2, just 20 minutes from the Mackinac Bridge. The property is about 100 ft. back from the 2 lane highway. The highway runs adjacent to the beach, and is between the duplex and the beach.

Hiking: The property abuts a vast area of state and federal forest land and offers great wilderness hiking including Switchback Ridge which is a large inland dune just 1/2 mile away. There are some majestic views from that ridge line! As well, the popular North Country Trail that stretches from New York to North Dakota can be picked up just a few miles away. There are a network of trails and 2 tracks leading through the woods so be sure to bring your compass if you plan to do any adventuring.

Nearby Attractions: Nearby attractions include Mackinac Island (a ferry ride from St. Ignace), Tahquamenon Falls (1 Hr.), Whitefish Point (1 Hr.) the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie (1 Hr.). Pictured Rocks is about 2+1/2 Hrs away, but it is worth it! You can take the boat tour (though its a bit pricey) or just take in the land lover's view for free at Miners Castle. It's breath taking. If you go, don't forget to stop and stick your toes in the sand at beautiful Miners Beach - you'll see it through the woods from the lookout at Miners Castle. P.S. Don't expect a man made castle at the lookout, but it's no less impressive! The 5 hr. shoreline hike between Mosquito Falls and Chapel Rock is dazzling, but bring bug spray!!

If you enjoy some occasional gambling, there are casinos in many of the 'major' cities of the UP.

If you just like souvenier shopping and tasting the flavors of the local cuisine, St. Ignace will have what you are looking for.

Fishing: Rent a boat or canoe (or drop in your own) in nearby Big Brevort Lake to work on a a fresh fish dinner (perch, pike, walleye, bass & panfish) for the evening. Alternately, charter a fishing boat out of St. Ignace and try your luck in the waters of Lake Michigan or Lake Huron.

                                                              Couldn't Ask for a Better Place

                                                              M. CrassNovi, MI

                                                              I was with the group that rented from June 21st - 28th, 2008 and I can't say enough how much I loved the place. Everything was in working order, with some very new looking appliances, and all very clean.

                                                              The view was terrific, and once I figured out the stone stairs down to the beach I spent about as much time as I could out there walking, sitting, reading. The beach was probably my favorite part of the whole trip.

                                                              It was nice being a bit away from the main tourist areas, but close enough that it was only a 15-20min drive to get into town to catch the ferry over to the island. The location was a perfect balance really.

                                                              I would, without a doubt, recommend the condo to friends or family looking for a great, affordable getaway spot in MI. I definitely hope to come back next year.

                                                              Nice place to stay

                                                              Richard M.

                                                              Great week to be there. Weather awesome. The scenery out front is awesome. Beautiful sunsets. Busy road during the day at times. Too many stars coming out at night to count. Unfortunately missed the Northern Lights that came out later at night. Great lake breeze coming to the house and having fans helped keep the house cool. Beds okay. Fully stocked kitchen supplies and towels was great. Also having a washer and dryer was really nice to use. Overall, peaceful and quiet. Central location for our day trips.

                                                              Another great stay

                                                              Daphne D.

                                                              We had another great stay at the duplex. We've stayed at other rentals in the St. ignace area and this is our favorite! Our grandkids asked To go back to the "double house that we really like". We love that there are 2 separate units - each with its own kitchen, living room, bath, and bedrooms. It gives our extended family room to spread out. We appreciated that everything was clean and the kitchens are well-stocked for cooking. We flew kites in the big front yards one day. We took the old stone path down to the beach a few times. We drove down to the big sandy beach area a few days as well - just a couple miles. And the BEST thing about your duplex is that it's not spidery outside!! We've stayed other places where we wouldn't go outside after dusk because of the spiders& webs in the doorways and porch overhangs. We love that about your place - no spiders. We sat outside several nights enjoying a bonfire and the stars. We look forward to returning again next summer. Thanks;)

                                                              Had a memorable stay

                                                              Harshal G.

                                                              Had a pleasant stay with fantastic view. Nothing much to complain.

                                                              Sunrise and sunsets were fabulous to watch from the front yard relaxing on the camp chairs.

                                                              All the rooms were fully equipped and maintained neatly. Kitchen was good. You can pretty much cook everything you need. Grill was covered and clean.

                                                              Plenty of insects and flies around, but nothing much can be done because of the woods around :) (Bug repellent spray is advised to carry). You will definitely have a great time with your family/friends. Thanks Jason, it was a memorable stay.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              I'm glad you and your family enjoyed the place Harshal. Thank you for taking the time to write the review and I hope to hear from you again in a future season. Enjoy your summer!

                                                              Great place to lay your head down after exhausting sight seeing for night.

                                                              Ted P.

                                                              Waking up to a view of Lake Michigan and a sunset over Lake Michigan are wonderful sights.

                                                              If you have never experienced swimming along US 2 you should make this a vacation spot to rent.

                                                              Had a couple of pasties during the week and great food (and ice cream of course ) in St Ignace and Mackinaw City. Garlyn zoo is nice attraction nearby as well as hiking in woods behind cottage. We did a day trip to to Sault Saint Marie locks a must if you have never been there.

                                                              Jason was always accessible for any questions .

                                                              Thanks for the use of your place Jason.

                                                              Relax Time

                                                              Our vacation included two families and this was a perfect fit. The owner was very helpful and pleasant to talk with. The house was clean and well stocked with the necessities. The view of the lake in front of the house is gorgeous and the hiking behind the house is fantastic. There is little beach area left directly across the street but just a short drive down the road there was a sandy beach with shallow waters for about 200 feet out into the lake, perfect for our younger children. The charcoal grill came in handy for dinners and the fire pit was in full blaze every night. Sunsets were beautiful and the starry skies at night ...amazing. Traffic is heavy during the day but we were not home that much then and it does lighten up in the evenings. This place is definitely on our list of good places! Thanks Jason for sharing your home!

                                                              The property borders Lake Superior State Forest land. The setting is serene, and the view out the front windows of either the upstaris or downstairs is spectacular. There are a network of trails in both the State and nearby Federal forest land. Switchback Ridge hiking trail runs along a steep inland dune (pick it up approx 1/2 mile behind the duplex) and offers a scenic view across the upper peninsula. You can also see across Lake Michigan to the lower peninsula on a clear day. This is a great place to escape from it all, while still being in close range to some of the upper penninsula's most popular attractions.
