      Beautiful Location

      Absolutely beautiful property! Perfect for our family. Our children loved all the bikes and the beach/fishing pier were so much fun! Watching movies outside was a dream. Very quaint and beautiful little town. We would love to come back!

      5/5 Excellent

        Great winter ice fishing spot

        Fished bay de noc, stayed at eagles retreat. Besides tight parking caused by lots of snow, the home and location were great.

        5/5 Excellent

          Perfect family getaway

          This was the perfect spot for our UP vacation for my husband, 10 and 12 year old daughters, and myself. Very clean, and I cooked almost all of our meals in the well-equipped kitchen. There is a Meijer in Escanaba where we stocked up on groceries. We loved going for bike rides using the bikes and helmets they provide. I loved running in the mornings in Gladstone. The rental has LOTS of games upstairs in the closet. We are a game-loving family - so that was a favorite. We also played some games on the Wii. We went to Pictured Rocks, Marquette, and the Big Spring - all about an hour drive. One day we did drive further to Taqhuemmon Falls in Paradise. We would definitely stay here again!

          5/5 Excellent

            Best location in Gladstone

            Perfect spot to enjoy the lake view with morning coffee, take a walk in the park, and/or spend the afternoon with a book. Note other comments about stairs if using upstairs space.

            4/5 Good

              Eagles Nest getaway

              The property is in a perfect spot. The owners have thought of a lot of amenities if you just want to stay around the area and hang out at the house. It is a very comfortable and cozy house. The only downsides are the very steep stairs to the bedrooms upstairs and the mattresses upstairs are not comfortable. But overall, it’s a great place!!
