They are all charmingly decorated and come fully stocked with bedding and towels. They are each on separate levels so there is complete privacy for two or three couples vacationing together.

Well marked cross-country trails adjoin the property that is great for hiking and backpacking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter. And it is located in the heart of snowmobile country. Trail rides abound in every direction. Ice Fishing and Snowshoeing too!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Air Conditioning: One of the few vacation rentals in the Upper Peninsula that actually has air conditioning, even though it it is rarely needed. Still, it sure feels good to turn it on during one of those hot summer days.

Basement: The comfortable basement is great for relaxing and watching the beautiful lake. The slot machines are just for decoration, and can not be played. Also, as returning guests may remembrer, we used to have a pool table, yet it has been removed to give us more space. Sorry.

Boats: We currently have 1 canoe and 1 small row boat for your use. We do have some life jackets available, yet we would advise you to bring you own. Life jackets are required for each person on the boat. No exceptions. If you have children, you must bring their own life jacket, as life jackets vary by size for the little ones.

Boat Launch: On the opposite side of the lake there is a small public park and boat launch on Hagerman Lake Road that you are able to use.

Cell phone service: Cell phone service is generally unreliable in the Upper Peninsula when you travel outside of Marquette and Escanaba. Therefore, we have a land line at the cabin with local and long distance service.

Children: We do have a pack n play available for young children. Plus, we do have a child gate you are welcome to use for one of the staircases.

Dishwasher: Please note, there is no dishwasher. The picture that appears to be a dishwasher is actually a compactor.

Dock: The dock at the cabin is 20 foot long. It is about 4 1/2 deep at the end.

Fire pit/Firewood: There is a fire pit for your use. We suggest that you bring your own firewood. There may be some left, but it is not a guarantee.

Fishing: Yes, bring your fishing pole and enjoy excellent summer fishing with a right from the dock or with the simple fishing boat we provide. In the winter, you can bring your own ice shanty, or go out onto the ice with your auger to enjoy some great fishing on the secluded Hagerman Lake. Enjoy northern pike, blue gill, walleye and small mouth bass. It's a spring fed lake. Blue gill are found right around the dock in the summer. One guest even caught 100 blue gills in one day.

Golfing: Golfing in Iron River is first class with its two elegant golf courses. A person could golf for days, enjoying the beautiful terrain the courses are located on. With George Young's Championship 18-hole Golf Course and the Iron River Country Club, you'll be golfing all day.

Grill: Yes, there is a propane grill for your use.

Hospital/ Medical Care: The closest hospital is in Iron River, about 5-6 miles from the cottage. There is also a clinie in the shopping center by the grocery store.

Hot Tub (No-Sorry): Once upon a time there was hot tub at the cabin. It was laid to rest last year. Still, we do have a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom so you can enjoy those relaxing jets.

Internet: YES, Wi-Fi is here! Enjoy!

Kitchen Supplies: All basic kitchen pots/pans, dishes and cooking utensils are included. Though we don't currently have a dishwasher, the garbage disposal is a wonderful asset. We also have a new stove and refrigerator.

Pets: We are currently welcoming your 4-legged family members for $25 flat fee per pet.

Phone: Since cell phone reception is spotty, we have installed a satellite phone for your use (with unlimited local and long distance service, in conjunction with the wi-fi.)

Skiing (downhill): Ski Brule is just 10 miles away- 397 Brule Mountain Road- Iron Rivar, MI 49935. You can cross-country ski right from the cabin door. http://skibrule.com/parks.cfm

Snowmobile Trails: You can snowmobile right from the cabin door.

Swimming beach: While it is possible to swim directly from the lakeshore in front of the cabin, the best traditional swimming beach is just across the lake. Feel free to row across, attach your own motor onto the boat or drive the 3 miles around the lake to the beach. There is a nice park there as well.

TV: We have a TV with cable at the cottage.

Watersports: Hagerman Lake is an all-sports lake.

Wi-Fi: Yes, we now have Wi-Fi at the cabin! Enjoy!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spend a picture perfect week in this lake house on Hagerman Lake. It is the second time that we have stayed here and again, it was the perfect place for our family to stay for our annual "up north" vacation. The house is very spacious and beautiful with plenty of room! The deck is also wonderful for sitting and visiting, as well as offering a beautiful view of the lake. We can't wait to return next year!! Thank you for sharing your home with us! :)

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the lake house and had an absolutely fantastic time! The space was perfect for our family, as we were traveling with our adult children and one other couple. Plenty of beautiful space for all of us to relax without feeling crowded! The lake is gorgeous and we had lots of fun swimming, canoeing and fishing!! Also, if you enjoy hiking, adventuring, etc., lots of places to explore!

Home away from home :))

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights in February - for our ski trip to Ski Brule. We were two couples, two teenagers, one old lady and an Airedale terrier. And we all had great beds (the dog's bed we actually brought with us :))), nice bathrooms and kitchen with all the utensils to cook our meals.

The house is beautiful and very well maintained. It is very spacious, and has everything you can possibly need. It is dog friendly, which was the main reason we picked up this property. But after we stayed there, we would have picked it up for many other reasons.

It is actually not very close to Ski Brule, and if you are staying there in the winter - better have 4WD car: our friend's decided to stop right before the little hill in the woods - just after we all pulled out of the driveway. And the car was not able to climb the hill, we had to push it.

Also this winter there was pretty much snow there. Though the drive way and the "local" road were pretty well plowed, - it is narrow, and it is in the woods. So try to stay on the road :)))

We enjoyed our vacations a lot! Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in their home :)))

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Property; very impressed at the lengths the owners have gone to in making it a complete get away. There was almost nothing we needed. Better than a 5 star hotel.

This beautiful log home is located in the midst of Ottawa National Forest, on the shore of a crystal clear spring fed lake, just outside the small town of Iron River, Michigan. Hagerman Lake as it is called, named after the original owners of the surrounding property, is an excellent fishing lake both summer and winter.

It is just a few miles from Ski Brule, a great family ski resort, and roughly an hour from Pine Mountain, Powderhorn and Indian head. Well marked cross-country trails adjoin the property that is great for hiking and backpacking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter. And it is located in the heart of snowmobile country. Trail rides abound in every direction.
