Perfect Setting and Ample Room

  • 4 of 5

My mother, two brothers (along with their families) rented this house for a long weekend. It was the perfect setting and had enough space for the nine of us. Three bedrooms and two baths upstairs with one bedroom and one bath downstairs. Loved the fire pit stocked with tons of wood, the beach and the canoe. Later at night as it got colder we played games in the four season porch. We only had a few items to note / suggestions for the owner. The hot tub did not appear to have been serviced, the water was very low (below the filter level) which resulted in impurities not being filtered out. We did add water and some chemicals as one person in our group was familiar with hot tubs. It would have been nice if the door to the deck from the kitchen had a screen on it. More lighting in the kitchen would have helped as its pretty dim when preparing meals (the microwave light was out). The addition of measuring cups would be nice as well (otherwise it was a well stocked kitchen). if you're bringing a dog, the posting had said fenced front yard, it's not completely fenced, only partially in places (and not grass but landscaping). Most VRBOs I rent have shampoo and conditioner, this one did not so please remember yours. We did a great job of keeping doors closed when going in and out of the house but we could not believe the amount of flies inside the house, if there was any way to fix that issue alone, we would have rated 5 stars. Even with my suggestions (they are pretty minor), we would stay here again!!

An amazing week at Superior Bay

  • 5 of 5

Two families joined together to share this fantastic rental property. The 4 bedrooms and 3 baths made our stay most convenient and everything was set up for comfort and enjoyment. The weather was lovely--we even got to see the power of a thunderstorm as it rolled into the bay right in front of us. We are all into cooking, and the kitchen was set up with just about everything reasonable one could expect. The extra refrigerator in the garage was great to have, and the enclosed porch room was a delightful plus.

We are happily returning again next year!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Four couples in their 50-60's booked this house for the beginning of August 2017. We brought up our trailer with four motorcycles and had a great time enjoying the area on the bikes. The house was comfortable for all eight of us, the driveway roomy enough for the four trucks and a trailer. We enjoyed the three-season sun room, the hottub, the screened porch below, and Lake Superior. The rocky beach was a little dicey to get over for us old folks so you do need water shoes, but the lake had a smooth hard slate bottom that was interesting-no sand! We canoed out pretty far and the slate/rock bottom continued. We also were able to enjoy the water with a few of us placing our lawn chairs in the lake to cool off from the hot day. Yes, we swam in Lake Superior!!! We all decided if we came up to this area again, we would rent the same house. It was very nice and comfortable.

A spacious haven

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! We had 6 adults and 1 seven year old, and the home was perfect. Everyone had plenty of room to spread out and find a quiet corner to read and view the bay. And the table in the kitchen was more than adequate for our dinners of whitefish (from Shill's in Marquette), prepared using the grill on the deck. I would certainly recommend this wonderful spot to others.
