So it is fairly private. The beach along Lake Superior is beautiful.

Lake Superior is just footsteps away! Enjoy the beautiful patio facing the lake. Completely remodeled and up-to date -super cute and cozy!
Our family had a great time spending a week here, and didn't want to leave. The cottage was clean, tidy, and well supplied, with a wonderful sunset view. The hammock was a nice unexpected bonus. It was a wonderful escape and change of pace for our family.
The only minor complaint was finding the collection of VHS tapes, which lead our two young children to be excited to watch them, only to find the VHS player in the TV was broken. It was not on the amenities list to begin with, so I won't knock the 5 stars over that.
Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 days. It was absolitely amazing, and quiet and secluded like we wanted. We enjoyed our evening sitting by the fire and listening to the water. Awesome lake view and private lake entrance. We ate at back bay bar and grill, and we won 140$ at the casino. All of the amenties that we brought was already there. Bug spray, paper towel, tissue, silverware, plates etc..... we WILL definetly be coming here again. This was such an amazing get away from everything, i couldnt ask for a better vacation. Felt like we were home!
I booked this cottage to take my mom on a trip to the U.P. It exceeded my expectations. The location is wonderful - it's a wooded lot so you can't see houses on either side and there are no houses across the road. You feel like you are all alone in the woods. It is right on the main road, but there was so little traffic that we didn't have any problems with road noise.
The deck overlooking the lake is a great place to relax. And when you take the steps down to the beach, there are no houses in sight so you feel like you have entered a remote section of Lake Superior far away from civilization.
We took day trips to Pictured Rocks (2 hours away) and Tahquamenon Falls and Whitefish Point (1 hour away). Within 15 miles of the cottage, there is the Point Iroquois lighthouse, a coffee shop, restaurants and a casino.
The cottage itself was perfect for us. It's been nicely renovated and decorated so it feels cozy and cute, and it was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed. We didn't lack anything we needed on our trip.
The only things we noticed that could be issues for some people is that there is no Wi-Fi, you must take stairs (36 of them) down to the beach, and there is no door on the bedroom. But we were fine with all of that, and already talking about when we can come back here again.
The cabin was charming and cozy for a couple. Lovely fire pit and deck area. It was 10 miles west of Brimley, so very secluded. You can walk on the beach right by the cabin, but must drive for other hiking.
We spent a long weekend in this lovely cabin - very clean and cosy with a fantastic porch overlook overlooking the lake, just a couple of steps down to the lake, backyard with fire place, gas grill, no direct neighbors! Very well equipped with all we needed incl. bug spray.
The bed is little small (double size), no door between bed room and living room with sleeper sofa so not recommanded for more than two people!
We will come back!
Watching the freighters pass through on Lake Superior + stop by the Iroquois Point Lighthouse, just down the road from the cottage, on your way to Sault Saint Marie.
