Beautiful location and very clean. We had 6 family members stay at the cabin and everyone had plenty of space. Also, lots of open grass space for kids to play yard games. It is a great place to get away and relax comfortably with nature.
Our cabin was fantastic! It was clean and had everything we needed! We love the outdoors and the property was great for enjoying it! We loved the privacy! We visited Munising and Marquette and Escanaba and Garden from this cabin! It worked out great for that as well!
Having visited many traditional UP camps I was pleasantly surprised by this home away from home. The location is far enough off the beaten path for true privacy yet is centrally located for day trips to Escanaba, Gladstone, Marquette and Munising. Don't be fooled by the 2 bedrooms as the home is big enough for a large family. Watching the sun rise over the pond while enjoying morning coffee is an amazing way of starting each day. I am looking forward to getting back.
This is my favorite place to get away to. If you are looking for an opportunity to experience the best Michigan's Upper Peninsula has to offer, a stay at this cabin is hard to beat. The sunrise over the forest, morning mist rising off the pond, tranquility of the property (it is rare to hear anything other than wildlife while staying here), trails through the woods to explore and a modern cabin to retreat to are just a few of the reasons my annual stay is a highlight of my year. Highly recommended!
The place is amazing! The view from the cabin is stunning which at times, includes wildlife that is very close! When we showed up, the place was extremely clean and had everything we needed which was awesome. As others have mentioned, the well marked trails are a great feature. It provided us some safe exploring options to see the unique aspect of the property. Can't wait to go back.
Amazing cabin. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Kids had a great time playing and discovering the wildlife. Adults had a great time relaxing and watching the moon come up over quiet conversations. Best time ever!
