About Owner/property manager

My personality profile says I'm an Eagle, but I've never really hurt anyone. I'm an entrepreneur, dad of many, grandfather, author of the forthcoming book "Happy Kids, Happy Future" and charter boat captain. I love to fish and love to see others have a good time fishing. Winters are spent snowboarding with kids and cross-country skiing, some ice fishing and vacationing. My wife and I own and run a print shop, which is up for sale now, as we'd like to retire from that part of our lives.

Owner/property manager purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Owner/property manager chose Allouez

My family has had property on Sand Point Road nearly all my life, so I spent ALL my growing up summers here. I had my sights on this property long before it came up for sale in 2013 in order to base my charter business from here, and immediately made an offer that was accepted. It's a really nice spot - one of the nicest on beautiful Lac La Belle and with deep water close to shore, it serves well to dock a large boat here.

What makes this cottage unique

A grand view of the lake where you see wildlife, sparkling water, boats and BOTH the sun-rise and sun-set.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted you to know how much we loved staying at your cabin!!! It was such a relaxing time and the kids loved fishing, swimming and kayaking right out the front door!!! Wish we would have been able to squeeze in a sightseeing tour with you!!! I guess we'll just have to come again!!!

Thanks,

Very Private Retreat for a Relaxing Getaway....

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is secluded at the end of the road with the lake shore surrounding the edges of a very comfortable yard. Campfires right outside your door and private swimming steps away.

The inside of the cottage has been refreshingly painted white with open cozy atmosphere.

Hosted a large family group very well. We were made very comfortable by Captain Brian's hospitality. The family committed they would definitely like to come back. It was a pleasant drive to Copper Harbor through the most scenic part of the trip.

Our third year and still our favorite spot!

  • 5 of 5

Love the location, views, privacy and all of the amenities of a home. Our boys ( 12 & 14) each brought a friend this year and we still had plenty of room. We did lots of local adventuring and the boys all had a great time! We also have family in the area so Keystone is great for having family dinners, picnics, and visiting. To top it all off, it is pet friendly and I think our dog loves it more than us! She has the freedom to run around the property, bark at and chase waves, jump in and out of the water and go on vacation with her family :)

great little cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. The cabin is very nice, clean, and comfortable. Great get away, especially since there is no TV, Wi-Fi or cell service, so we really disconnected. Owner was great to work with. Thanks!

Owner's Response: We have considered adding TV and/or WiFi, but have received these kinds of comments, so we feel they are not needed or desired. By the way, as mentioned, cell service is non-existent, if you have Verizon, but AT&T works really well at the cottage. Even so, you MAY just want to leave your cell phones and all electronics at home!

Nice Quiet Stay on a Beautiful Lake

  • 5 of 5

Nice location far away from it all. My wife, nephew, and I spent a week in this cottage in August 2015. We brought our own boat to do some fishing and sightseeing (use of the onsite dock was convenient). We also went on a guided fishing trip with the owner of the cottage, he is a licensed fishing captain. The cottage was just as described. We enjoyed getting away from TV and internet for a week, didn't miss it at all. Although, AT&T cell service was good at the cottage. At first we were concerned that the cottage didn't have air conditioning but that turned out to not be a valid concern. The cottage was nicely stocked to accommodate your needs. The owner also has kayaks and a jon boat for the guest to use. Overall it was a great vacation and I would come back again. A week wasn't enough to see all the sights that the Keweenaw Peninsula has to offer.

Owner's Response: My wife and I have debated on adding internet and/or TV service, but we are hearing many say they like it without those day to day distractions that can take away from a vacation that is meant to be a "get away."
