Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a charming cabin! It is directly across from Lake Superior - imagine waking up and looking out the window to a spectacular clear lake view. It is close to Marquette, nothing is more than a few minutes away. Everything we needed was there. The cabin is clean and comfortable, with plenty of space for us to relax and unwind. The owners are friendly and it was a pleasure to do business with them. We are already making plans to go back next year!

Quiet, beautiful, cabin with a view!

  • 5 of 5

Been staying here for spring break for the past 4 years. Small and quaint cabin with nice updates. The view of Superior and fireplace are our favorite parts of the cabin. Also a plus is the paved bike trail located across the highway that takes you into town. We have always stayed here in early spring. I would imagine this place would be totally awesome in summer. Owners are great!

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property when visiting our daughter at NMU. We found the cabin to be in a great location with a wonderful view of Lake Superior. The traffic could get a little busy during the day but we were out and about so it was no problem. It was a perfect size for my husband and myself, plus there was the second bedroom for those who might need it. We would stay here again.

Awesome location

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous sun rises over lake superior, viewed right from the couch! Kitchen was fully stocked with whatever utensils we needed. Bike path conveniently right across the street to get to town or stop at the hidden pebble beach on the way. Our dog loved playing at the beach and come back to sunbathe on the porch. The porch could use a little tlc, but it didn't even matter with such good views. The highway noise was noticeable at first, but not loud enough to be a problem. And by the end of the trip, we didn't even notice it. Bedrooms are always quite being on the back side of the house.

The owner was very responsive once we got there, they forgot to leave us access instructions and got back to us right away.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Marquette is a great little town located near some of the most beautiful sites nature has to offer. The lake house was

exactly as described very nice and easy to find My only regret was that I couldn't get up to enjoy what I'm sure would have been

a beautiful sunrise

Fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in an idea location. The deck is wonderful to have breakfast out overlooking Lake Superior. For us, the bike/running trail was in the perfect location - right across the road. Marquette is just 2.3 miles down the trail. It made for a wonderful walk/run to go down visit the bakery and then return.

The house is by the highway but we never heard any traffic noise. It was like being secluded from the rest of the world yet right there.

The Michigan information plaza was just a half mile away with very knowledgeable staff that was able to make sure we knew about the top spots to visit.

The cabin was very nice. It was well furnished with all of the basics. It exceeded our expectations with extras. We will definitely try to stay here the next time that we visit.
