About the property

1 bedroom plus 'ladder' loft bedroom; convertible sleeper, 1 bathroom

Rainbow's Promise is the newest addition to our vacation home family. Located on beautiful Townline Lake with 200 feet of shoreline and three acres of property. Rainbow's Promise is located within the Hiawatha National Forest, close to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and Munising, MI. This 840 square foot cottage has 1 bedroom with a double size bed, a 'ladder loft' with two twin size beds, a log style couch that folds into a double sleeper, and a bathroom with shower on the main floor. We have a full kitchen with dining table and extra space at the counter. A wood buring fireplace to warm the cottage on cool nights in the forest. Townline Lake is a 'no wake' lake so a row boat with paddles and life preservers are provided so you can explore the 40 acres of water or dip your line for a chance at pike, bluegill, bass or perch. Bring your catch back to the dock and cook on the charcoal grill or over the large stone fire pit, wood included.

Further Details: Gaze into the light of the outdoor fire or sip a cool drink while lounging on the dock listening to the area birds and wildlife. You'll find Rainbow's Promise to be peaceful and serene and a place where you can get away from it all. Bruno's Run hiking trail is adjacent to the property and offers 9 miles of hiking or biking opportunities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

we had a great time at Rainbows Promise....and are planning for next year. The weather was fabulous, watched a cabin being built across the lake along with our coffee every morning! I have to say that is one of the most 'well stocked' cabins we have ever stayed in...clean and comfy...tho we didnt 'scale' the loft area, the main floor bedroom was bed enough for us. It was wonderful having a comfortable bed to crawl in after our busy days...While reading the guest book in the cottage. Thanks for all your help in getting us there!!!

Thanks again,

Quiet and picturesque

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Rainbow’s Promise was terrific! We really liked the cottage and the view to the lake out front was splendid to wake up to every morning. Townline Lake’s water was crystal clear and very inviting (though too cold to swim in early October, ha!). We loved using the trails close by and we were close enough to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore to spend time hiking and at the recreation areas there. The cottage was clean and well kept, with a fully functional kitchen for cooking any meals we needed. It was nice having a full-size fridge for plenty of food for our stay. Hopefully we can come back for another stay in the beautiful UP at Rainbow’s Promise.

Rainbow's Promise: A Perfect UP Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic week at Rainbow's Promise. The cabin is located on a beautiful lake with a nice little dock for fishing / watching the stars. Lots of fish in the lake! The cabin was very clean and well maintained. We had no issues at all. Lisa was great about providing us with timely information as we prepared for the trip. FYI... The cabin is about 15 minutes outside of Munising and close to Pictured Rocks and great hikes. We highly recommend a stay here to get away and decompress in the beauty of the UP. This is a great company to book through - you won't be disappointed with your stay.
