About the property

Beautiful, Comfortable and Spacious Cabin in the Woods!3 Bedroom 2 Bath

Our Hideaway is located in the Hiawatha National Forest on FF Hwy 13. The house is nestled in beautiful pine trees for ultimate privacy. There are three bedrooms: the two bedrooms on the main floor each have 1 Queen size Bed with log headboards a night stand, seating and a view of the forest. There is 1 bathroom on the main floor as well, with a tub/shower combo and a behind the door laundry chute! The Brand New Spacious and carpeted 3rd Bedroom in the downstairs has 1 King size Bed and 1 Double size bed with log headboards and night stands. It is attached to a large bathroom with ceramic tile floors, a vanity room with 2 sinks, and a separate, but adjacent to, shower/toilet room. The shower is very large with ceramic tile on the floor and walls. The New Bedroom and Bathroom is paneled with beautiful tongue and groove Cedar on the new walls and ceiling! For additional guests, there are 2 sofa sleepers and 1 double size futon couch in the spacious living area on the main floor.

We have a 2 car attached garage to offer. You can store all your gear in the downstairs and utilize the washer and dryer. The full kitchen includes large refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, and oven with a glass top stove. In the evenings you can enjoy our beautiful outdoors while you cook over our charcoal grill or fire pit!

Come and enjoy the quiet sanctuary of the Hiawatha National Forest located in the Beautiful Upper Peninsula. Please enjoy our cozy home complete with one acre of quiet. Pets Allowed, No Smoking.

Enjoy your vacation at our Hiawatha's Hideaway in the SPRING. We are so close to many lakes & streams. Fish for your dinner & watch as the beauty of the Hiawatha National Forest comes to life again! The area falls at this time of year are gushing with newly released water.

Cameras are a must!!

In the SUMMER, enjoy your day biking, hiking, or sightseeing on Bruno's Run (within walking distance) and Pine Martin Run (nearby). Or, rent a canoe for a beautiful tour of The Indian River which is only a half of a mile from the house. Walk down to the general store to get an ice cream cone, or relax by a campfire in the back yard & roast marshmallows. Since you usually can't snowmobile during the summer in Alger County, bring your Four Wheelers instead!

Lake Superior is only 12 miles north, so take a beautiful Pictured Rocks Cruise; glass bottom boat ride to view fish and shipwrecks; rent a kayak or jet ski; or, shop in one of many gift shops in Munising, then you can enjoy a fine meal at one of the many local restaurants.

A trip to the Hiawatha National Forest in the FALL is a photographers dream! Highway 13, being a scenic byway, is 36 miles long and full of color in the fall and the most gorgeous anywhere! This is also the perfect time and place for hunting partridge, deer & bear! Our favorite thing to do in the fall is to hike the 2-1/2 miles out to Chapel Rock which has a full view of Lake Superior. On a warm, windy day, the waves of Lake Superior are huge, and encourage brave swimmers!

The WINTER in the Hiawatha National Forest is unbelievable! The beauty alone will blow you away, with newly fallen snow blanking pine trees creating a white tunnel throughout the forest. Snowmobiling, the biggest draw to the Upper Peninsula in the winter, is spectacular on the many miles of trails that take you through picturesque scenery you can only imagine! Whatever winter activity you might enjoy...

Just right for a group of snowmobilers

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for a week for snowmobiling for the last 3 years and love the location in the forest but right on Rt 13. The house has a large garage where we can "wrench" on the sleds if we need to. The two bathrooms instead of the common "one bathroom cabin" is appreciated. The rooms are comfortably furnished with all the kitchen appliances needed. The beds are comfortable, especially with the bed warmers in the basement beds. The cabin has those little extras like the taxidermy animals that we enjoy.

Beautiful house and property

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at the Hideaway. Very clean and quiet. Short drive to Munising and the Pictured Rocks. Very close to several lakes for kayaking and trails for hiking and mountain biking. The owners are very accommodating and respond quickly to questions. Highly recommended and we plan to stay at the Hideaway again.

Beyond our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Hiawatha Hideaway was superior. The home was so very clean and well stocked with all amenities as stated. The bonus features was having a washer & dryer so we did not need to bring extra clothing and towels, a garage to keep our vehicle out of the elements and the internet service was so very important for our sons medical device and it worked Perfectly. I also wanted to mention how nice the bonfire pit with stocked wood was and the nice charcoal grill. The home is very spacious and exceeded all of our expectations. We also loved the location. Pete's Lake was so Beautiful. We did not want to leave. We are Very satisfied with our experience. We will definitely be back again.

Many Thanks!

Beautiful home nested in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

The Hiawatha Hideaway rental home in Munising was very clean and accommodating for our stay. There was plenty of room and sleeping arrangements for our group. The rental was fully stocked and we found everything needed to make our stay very comfortable. We enjoyed the backyard fire pit and enjoyed being close to the Hiawatha forest to ride our side by sides right from the cottage. This is not the first time we have rented from Hiawatha Rental Homes and are already planning our next trip. Lisa and Tom are great to work with and always available if needed.

Clean, cozy, fully equipped-all amenities we needed. Lots of room. We'd definately come back if in the area and recommend to our friends! The location was great, close to trails and all the sights we wanted to see. The hosts were very helpful!
