Overview

Sagola Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 7 comfortably

Fully furnished log cabin located on a small, beautiful, private no-wake lake. The cabin, with its rustic charm, offers all the modern conveniences of home (dishwasher, washer and dryer, microwave, etc). The furnace is propane hot water heat with a traditional wood fireplace in the living room along with a woodstove in the dining room to ease the chill on cool nights. The cabin gives the impression of a hunting lodge atmosphere with numerous wall mounts of wild game such as deer, fish, otter, bobcat, wolf, bear, grouse, and elk. A spacious platform deck faces the lakeside with a large grassy yard surrounding the cabin. The walk to the lake edge is about 50 ft. and flat (very senior citizen friendly) with a sandy beach area. A 14 ft. fishing boat with oars and four life-jackets, two kayaks, and a paddle boat are provided. No gas motors are allowed on the lake. The lake is pure and chemical free with primarily bluegills and bass. Fishing is exceptional!

Included with the cabin is a two stall unattached garage available for guests to use. The cabin is four miles off a main highway, and the trek in is a paved dead-end road. Three words describe the setting of this cabin: peaceful, relaxing, and awe-inspiring. The natural scenic beauty lends itself to an abundance of wildlife with beautiful sunrises/sunsets. Location of this cabin is only 20 miles north from downtown Iron Mountain/Kingsford where you will find restaurants,shopping, golf courses, biking/hiking trails, museums, etc. It is also within a short driving distance to many waterfalls, parks, and special scenic attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was beautiful weather during our stay. Your place is decorated beautifully and you had ample equipment/supplies to cook and shower. We appreciated the use of all the outside equipment (kayaks, floats, boat, paddle boat, etc). Take Care and God Bless!

Wonderful time at a wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cabin. The cabin was beautiful, the lake was great. It felt like we were home! The cabin was clean, decorated nicely, and had lots of room for us. Our kids had fun swimming and using the paddle boat. Vance, the caretaker, was very helpful and friendly, and was there to greet us and show us around the place. I would definitely stay again if we visited the UP in the future.

Remote, peaceful, and rustic

  • 5 of 5

The Bush Lake cabin was a little piece of heaven! We loved the lack of phone service that allowed our family to "unplug" and spend quality time together. The cabin's unique decor and comfortable amenities made us feel right at home; we had everything we needed. It was clean and we could tell it was well-loved by its owners. The small, remote lake was unbelievably tranquil. It was almost like we had the lake to ourselves. We enjoyed fishing, playing on the beach, and kayaking. Each night ended with a quiet campfire. This was such a beautiful and wholesome place to bring our family. There is no doubt in my mind we will be going back!

Rustic, Quiet, and Relaxing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin was beautiful and had everything we needed! It had rustic decor and was clean and well-kept. We appreciated all the amenities of home and were very comfortable there. Because of very little cell phone service we were able to unplug and what a peaceful blessing that was. Our children enjoyed playing in the sand on the quiet little beach. We had fun fishing, kayaking, paddle boating, and floating on tubes. The lake was unbelievably peaceful and warm. We got to see some loons on the lake, too. Serene campfires filled our evenings. This was the perfect place to bring our young family and we will be sure to go back. You can't beat that fresh U.P. air!

Lovely, spacious cabin on a private, quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to find that the cabin was all it was described to be. For us, it was centrally located to a number of destinations, including relatives living nearby. The cabin was very well-maintained and comfortable. The kitchen was a good size and was stocked with just about any utensil or appliance that we have at home, making it convenient for prepping meals. The dining table is large and all 9 of us, (7 adults and 2 small children) fit around it nicely, making for some great conversations at mealtime. Managers met us on arrival and chatted for quite some time--they are very warm and friendly. The boats provided (rowboat, 2 kayaks and a paddleboat) were lots of fun for everybody. We saw an assortment of wildlife, including deer, a hawk, turkeys, a variety of squirrels, and the hummingbirds kept us entertained fighting over the feeders. In all, we had a great time, and would return again! Thanks for keeping such a nice place!

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was spotless and beautiful, especially if you like rustic decor. The lake was a lot of fun with excellent bluegill fishing. We had 4 teenagers and two adults in our party and everyone had a great time.

Several landmarks in Dickinson County highlight pieces of history related to the area. Quite a few abandoned iron ore mine sites in the area are open to the public and provide a fascinating glimpse into the past. One of the most interesting remnants of the mining era is the Cornish Pumping Engine, the largest steam engine ever built in North America. The 50-foot-high pump, which may be visited in Iron Mountain, was used to remove water from the Chapin Mine, the area's most productive iron mine. Another landmark in Dickinson County is the Pine Mountain Ski Jump, near Iron Mountain. Well-known for its annual mid-February tournaments, Pine Mountain is, at 932 feet, the longest ski jump in the world.

The Bush Lake area also offers a 'world of outside recreation.' There are an unlimited, amazing number of outside activities that you could participate in; from hiking, to fishing, to golfing, to swimming. Several state campgrounds (Carney Lake, VanRiper, and Bewabic), roadside parks/wildlife areas, and other nearby county and city parks are within close driving distance from Bush Lake.

Some of the most magnificent sights to encounter in the area are the mighty waterfalls. In Dickinson County alone, within a 30 mile radius, there are (5) breathtaking waterfalls, and also closeby in the Crystal Falls area, as many as (8) magestic waterfalls to take in. The voice of the water will never leave you; it is the underlying theme of the area.
