Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our cabin is 20 years old. It was built by the original owner who was a carpenter and the owner of a mill. His attention to detail and craftsmanship are over the top. If you appreciate woodwork you’ll love our cabin. Fishing on the lake offers pike, walleye, perch and bass to name a few. A couple of years ago someone caught a 47” inch pike (at least this is what I’m told.)

About Ed Amaya

I own a film production company that specializes in commercials in Chicago. I’ve produced independent movies as well. I’m married to a school teacher and we have two kids. When I’m not driving kids around I coach my son’s soccer team in the fall, always a good time.

Ed Amaya purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Ed Amaya chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

We live in Chicago and my wife is from the area. We wanted a place of our own to stay when we visited family and friends because we had children who were 4 and 2 at that time. We figured that the cabin would help us build memories to cherish as we all got older. In fact during our last visit my wife and I overheard our kids talking to each other about memories of the first pig roast we had at the cabin. That really brought a smile to our faces. Beyond this we loved the location. While it’s nestled in the woods on a lake we are close to relatives, shopping and more importantly a Starbucks. If you go in the opposite direction you go deeper into the woods where you can find fishing streams and waterfalls. All the properties on the lake have an acre of land so you have separation from the neighbors. It’s a very quiet getaway.

What makes this cabin unique

From the minute you step out of your car you smell the clean air of the U.P., a distinctly woodsy smell. Rarely do you see planes flying overhead. Once inside the cabin you’ll marvel at the view of the lake. As I always say, “the view alone is worth the price of admission.” With each passing day you’re able to sleep in a little longer because the area is so peaceful. There is even a nesting pair of eagles that live on the basin.

Unbelievable lakefront property!

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely gorgeous and well maintained. The house was secluded yet only a 10 minute drive to downtown Marquette. I don't think that there is a better value in the area if you are planning a trip to the UP.

Perfect views from a lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our 5th year staying at this wonderful place in the fall. Lots of space, nice kitchen, quaint beach on the basin, awesome sauna and outdoor space. Our Girls Weekends are made so much better staying here.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend. The cabin is cozy and thoughtfully laid out with a beautiful view and well stocked, user friendly kitchen. The deck with dining set off of the living area was a great place to read and enjoy a cup of coffee. My granddaughter had a great time playing on the sandy beach and making smores around the fire. We would love to come back during the summer months to more fully enjoy the water.

Quiet cabin on beautiful calm lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time at Cabin Up. We recommend it to other families looking for a quiet getaway! The kids loved the calm lovely water and beach. My husband and I enjoyed reading on the screened in porch attached to the sauna. We made fires in the firepit, played a lot of mancala, canoed around the lake and snuggled up to watch a movie on a rainy night. The cabin is close to Marquette, so there are many things to do nearby. We took a day trip to explore the Pictured Rocks and take the shipwreck boat tour. This cabin is a wonderful place to make memories with your family! Thank you Ed for sharing your wonderful cabin with us!

Great Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our vacation at this wonderful cabin. The lake is a great size and we got out in our kayaks every day. The water was nice and calm and it was fun to paddle past the bridges to the river. Enjoyed the sandy beach area and the sauna. The cabin has everything you need, was great to have a dishwasher and washer and dryer. Location is convenient to run into Marquette for dinner or a beer or two at the Ore Dock. We were able to see the Northern Lights one night on our way home from an evening in Marquette. Hope to come back a little earlier in the summer sometime to fully enjoy the beach area.

Perfect location, loved the set-up

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here- felt like home when we left! With family in Marquette and Ishpeming, it was the perfect middle point for everyone to meet up, and for us to drive. Snowmobiling, ice fishing, sauna, and private enough to feel like an escape.

Very clean and lots of space! Our family took over the lower space, inlaws on main floor and my parents up stairs in the loft.

Parking was a bit tight for a our trailer but that is all! Definitely will rent again.

thank you ed!
