Wildlife and Wi-fi: The Best of Both Worlds

Adults-only apartments in Marquette
This property is an outdoor person's DREAM!! Plenty of space to enjoy nature, hike, house snowmobiles, and wax skis. Reserve the Bird's Nest to visit Marquette, the Best Small Town for Adventure, as named by USA Today's 10BEST for 2018! Centrally located in the U.P., come and relax in the serenity of a second-story studio barn apartment (housing no livestock) located in the midst of 70 wooded acres, and just eight miles from downtown Marquette. Enjoy the peace and quiet of being surrounded by mature trees, full of wildlife -- including the occasional moose! Watch the herd of deer grazing on the food plot in winter and spring, and marvel at the foliage in autumn. Lake Superior, snowmobile trails, the bike path, and Marquette Mountain are also conveniently located just minutes away. This is an ideal space for snowmobilers, skiiers, and bird hunters, as there is plenty of heated indoor space to store equipment or kennel bird dogs! This property houses three, with a queen-sized bed and rollaway bed available, full kitchen, and 3/4 bath. A fourth person could sleep on the couch as well. Relish the comfort of in-floor heat, open windows, or air conditioning, and set your own thermostat. Cable TV and free wi-fi are included, with heated indoor space to park a car, boat, or snowmobiles. Additionally, guests have access to an outdoor grill and fire pit, with wood provided free of charge. Two kayaks are also available for use at no additional charge (other than a deposit). All-white bedding and bath towels included. Pets up to 25 pounds are allowed in the studio for a $75.00 fee (must be kenneled if left alone in the studio), and bird dogs are allowed in kennels on the lower level of the barn for a $75.00 fee. You must see this property to appreciate the beauty the U.P. has to offer!

Nice getaway near Marqette
Perfect spot close to Marquette. We enjoyed this place because it was out of town and really quiet. We were near lots of great hiking trails and went to pictured rocks for a day trip. Great trip!

5/5 Excellent

Great Place to Stay for a Marquette Trip
A great place to stay for 2 people! Only a short 10 minute drive to downtown and easy to get to all the adventures Marquette has to offer. Since it was rainy we really appreciated being able to park our car in the garage below the loft. The unit was very clean and comfortable. We also had some questions upon arrival and our host was very responsive. If we ever plan another trip to the area I would definitely stay here again!

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay!
Loved staying at the Birds Nest. The studio was nice and clean. Short drive to Marquette. Bed was comfortable and loved the soft sheets. Also loved having the indoor garage space. Would totally recommend.

The Birds Nest was amazing!
From the check in process to the stay it made it very difficult to want to leave. The host were very friendly and the cabin was remarkable! Wanda was a great bonus as well.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely, clean home! The host was very responsive and thought of everything for a comfortable stay!
We had a great time staying at the Bird Nest. Our stay was short, but we wished we were staying longer. Definitely recommend!
