About the property

Lake Superior Beachfront - Perfect For A Couple Or Small Family

Relax into the largest fresh water lake in Michigan-Lake Superior. The cozy cottage is ideal for your Lake Superior get-away. Walking into the cottage you feel a sense of ease and relaxation that awaits. Experience a technology- free vacation, surrounded by nature, is the intention of this quaint, unassuming cottage. There is nothing like spending your vacation gazing out at Lake Superior, seeing Canada off in the distance and soaking in the fresh air, earth and water. Building a fire directly in front of your cabin, with comfortable seats overlooking Lake Superior is an ideal way to spend your Spring, Summer or Fall evening.


Cell phone service: Cell phone service is generally unreliable in the Upper Peninsula when you travel outside of Marquette and Escanaba.

Pets: We apologize to all of you wonderful pet owners who love to travel with their 4-legged family members. Due to the owner's allergies, we are unable to accept pets at this cozy cottage.

Swimming: There is a swimming beach right outside the cabin. It is a sandy beach on Lake Superior.

Privacy: This cottage is quite private and no one would hear you around the campfire. There is not a cabin to the west within view of this one. There is a nice cabin to the east, but shielded from view by the trees, they do have a covered area that they store wood under and that is within view through the woods from the driveway, but you can't see it from the water side of the cabin. So it is fairly private. The beach along Lake Superior is beautiful.

Grill: Yes- There is a propane grill for you to use.


There is plenty to keep you busy if you plan on traveling to Brimley-Lake Superior. There is everything from casinos to the Soo Locks to keep you entertained. This area of the state has a lot to offer anyone looking for variety of activites.

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.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad your family had a great time at the Brimley Cottage! I'm so sorry about the VHS machine. We didn't know it was broken. We are working on finding a replacement. We'd love to have you and your family back again. Sincerely, Cara

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.

Quaint cabin in the woods w deck on L Superio

  • 4 of 5

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.

clean, cosy cottage - perfect for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

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!
