About Nathan Scott

We bought our first home in calumet in 2005 and proceeded to gut it and remodel it working 16 hrs a day for 6 weeks and then we moved in. In 2008 we purchased this home in Mohawk with the intention of turning it into a vacation rental. Well, upon completion of the interior remodel we decided to move into it and really enjoyed living there for two years while renting out our first house by the year. In 2010 we purchased another larger home in calumet and moved in there and rented the Mohawk house out by the year for next 6 years, always intending to finish the exterior and someday turn it into the awesome vacation rental we knew it could be. In that 6 year period we purchased some other homes, remodeled them and added to our annual rentals. It wasn't until the summer of 2016 that we finally finished the exterior of the Mohawk house, tweaked the interior some and furnished the place so we can finally share this awesome space that is "The Red Door Retreat"!

Nathan Scott purchased this house in 2008

Why Nathan Scott chose Mohawk

We chose to purchase this home originally because of the location... We knew it'd be a great spot for a vacation home with all the things we enjoy easily accessible. Trail access right behind the house, ski hills nearby, mountain biking/hiking trails within a short drive, fishing/hunting nearby.

What makes this house unique

Conveniently located on US 41N in Mohawk with plenty of drive thru parking so no need to back trailers in and out. Quiet so you can relax after a long day on the trails or slopes and yet you can also kick up the stereo and play some pool if your not ready to unwind. The custom maple woodwork, high end furnishings, in wall sound, pool table recessed lighting etc... combine to give the home a wow factor that I still feel every time I walk in and I hope will stay with you long after you've gone.

Amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

House is great,even better in person!

Full size pool table,very comfortable leather reclining sofa and love seat and the huge t.v. are a definite bonus.

The owners made sure to stock the house with everything you'll need right down to extra toothbrushes,toothpaste,&razors.

The jetted tub in the upstairs bathroom is very deep and even has a cushioned headrest built right into it.

The bedding,towels,appliances,and dishes are all very high quality and brand new.

We loved how centrally located the house was as well. 20-30 minutes from Houghton/Hancock and Copper Harbor(must see)!!

It's only about 1 hour and 45 minutes from the Porcupine Mountains which makes for a very nice day trip.

We would definitely recommend Red Roof Retreat!!

The owner, Nate,was very accommodating and had a ton of information and suggestions on restaurants and attractions in the area.

Perfect Snowmobile Lodging!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with lots of space for a group of riders, perfect location to trails. Absolutely loved the kitchen and it was equipped with everything we needed, I didn't even unpack most of my normal kitchen utensils that I bring along on our trips. Jetted tub was awesome after a long day of riding. Highly recommend!

Return Visit -Excellent Once Again

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the Red Door Retreat on our return trip from last year's visit. Once again the house was top notch and Nate was extremely accommodating. Last year was a couples weekend and this year a guys outing. In both cases the location was great for snowmobiling and the house had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Thanks Nate!

Conviently located on US 41N, Mohawk is the gateway to keweenaw county and big snow country. Approximately 100yards behind the house is trail 3 snowmobile/atv recreation trail which links to hundreds of miles of trails. The house has frontage on US 41 and Union st so you can pull in off of 41 and drive right through so you don't have to deal with backing trailers in or out. Mohawk is a nice central location with endless outdoor recreation activities nearby. You have Mt. Bohemia 22 miles to the north and Mt Ripley 18 miles to the south for skiing/snowboarding. There are several cross country skiing trail systems in the are including eagle harbor 20 miles north, Swede town trails in calumet 6 miles south and Michigan tech trails 22 miles south. The sights and unique shops of Copper harbor, Brockway Mountain drive And the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge are a half hour drive north. Calumet and Keweenaw National Historic Park is 6 miles south. 14 miles further south you'll find the town of houghton where the campus of MichiganTechnological University is as well as more shopping and dining. And of course no trip to the Keweenaw is complete without visiting the famous Gay Bar in Gay Michigan a short 12 mile drive away. Don't forget to ask for Jess, the bar manager, and wealth of local knowledge.
