We've stayed here twice now; once in 2012 and again in 2015. The U.P. is simply beautiful and so is the home. The owners were very responsive to my inquiries and provided lots of helpful information by email, describing the area attractions as well as important facts about the home and its amenities.
And amenities there are in abundance! The information in the listing is accurate. The house is filled with lots of thoughtful extras. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed for our family. Internet and cable TV are available for the technophiles, while for the outdoor lovers -- well let's just say it's a paradise. My favorite activity was sitting out by the fire pit in the cool evening air. Firewood is generously supplied. My wife loves kayaking and it was here in 2012 that my youngest son learned to kayak with his mom for the first time.
The property has private lake frontage and it starts out nice and shallow which was perfect for our boys to swim -- and easy for launching kayaks too. Even though it's Lake Superior, the bay where the home is located is fairly shallow and in late summer it's warmer than the main part of Lake Superior. Still, the water temperature can vary, so if the weather is unlucky and there's rain and several cloudy days in a row, the water can be chilly.
I got some of the best sleep of my life in the master bed with the attic fan running at night to pull in the cool nighttime air. Even in August it was 40s/50s at night. There's something peaceful and invigorating about that fresh nighttime U.P. air that no hotel AC could ever duplicate. Can't sleep? Step outside and be awed... a clear night sky here is absolutely breathtaking. Wake up to a hot cup of coffee in the morning and ... bliss.
Of all the vacation spots our family has ever stayed, this home ranks near the top of our list. Thinking of staying here? You will not be disappointed. Five stars.
