Family-friendly cabin with indoor pool and spa tub
You are surrounded in overwhelming beauty from every angle of our cabin. Through the large windows you can see one of Michigan's largest inlet lake, Michigamme, which is just shy of 4300 acres, with depths up to 70 feet deep and has 27 islands on it.

It is great for swimming, boating and fishing or you can walk down to the water and enjoy our 340 feet of water front. Our family- friendly cabin features all the amenities you can find at any resort. It sleeps 8 people comfortably. As soon as you walk in the front door, you will be wowed by the over-sized logs through out the cabin.

We have unique hour glassed shaped entry ways and a beautiful curved staircase leading up to the loft area with a tree as a post. It is a great focal point in the home.

If you love the winter sports there are well maintained trails for snow mobilizers and people who like to quad. Right down the road from us is Van Riper State Park, they offer camping and beach/boat access if you desire it.

Thirty miles east of us is the great town of Marquette which lays upon the shores of Lake Superior. It is a beautiful town with small shopping malls, a Walmart, Lowes, Target, several grocery stores, bakeries, farmers market, Walgreens, hotels, fine dining along the water as well as fast food, drinking establishments and a movie theater.

5/5 Excellent

Exactly what we were looking for!
This place was exactly what we were looking for, somewhere for my wife and I to disappear to for a few wintery days to just relax and enjoy the area. I don't want to oversell it, but I would say the pictures don't do it justice. We would definitely stay here again...and probably will. My only small complaint is the camera location from the back porch that angles into the kitchen and part of the living room. I absolutely get having cameras outside, but this one camera (though may have been off) kept leaving me self-conscious about being watched as I entered its field of view (while inside the dwelling). It should probably be re-located. Other than that minor thing this place was just incredible. Everything from the private location to the amenities, to the home owners. Even the local road is was beautiful in the winter. Amazing, amazing, amazing stay. Lastly, I ended up communicating with Tim multiple times (not for anything bad) and felt that he cared about our stay and was just extremely helpful. Probably the best homeowners I have ever communicated with from a VBRO or similar rental sites. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful log cabin. -Chris

Beautiful Place
This cabin was absolutely beautiful and had plenty of things to do to keep us occupied during our stay. The only reason we gave this 4 stars is because during the check in process, the WiFi was down and we weren’t able to get inside for at least an hour after we arrived. It wasn’t exactly the owners fault, but it was a bit frustrating. Also what had contributed to the 4 stars was that there were flies everywhere. Dead and alive. We vacuumed and swept everything when we got there just to clean up a bit. Other than that, the property owners were there to answer any questions and called to check up on how things were since the WiFi was acting weird. They were very easy to communicate with and extremely helpful with everything. The pool, hot tub and sauna were absolutely perfect and kept us busy for and entire evening. The fireplace easily kept the entire place nice and warm throughout our stay. We loved the quiet and privacy we had on this property. We easily wished we had an extra day or two at this cabin. We would absolutely stay again. Maybe more in the fall so we could explore the outdoors more and hopefully see some more wildlife wondering around. Thank you both for making this place an amazing little getaway. We appreciate you guys being available for answering questions or concerns. We look forward to staying here in the future!

Perfect Getaway
When we arrived at the property we were left speechless due to how beautiful it was. Everything about the lodge is wonderful . It is very clean and modern. The owners were very accommodating and available when we had questions. The kids loved being in a warm pool when it was snowing outside. The Christmas decorations gave the lodge a very warm feeling of comfort. Will definitely come back in the summer.

This cabin is amazing!
We had a wonderful time! The owners were very responsive, attentive & helpful. The pool area is amazing, we canoed even though it was chilly, and took a nap outside on the patio furniture outside in t he 50 degree temperature. The fire pit was perfect & we had everything we needed to make the stay memorable. We will be coming back for sure.

Couple's getaway
This property is on beautiful Lake Michigammee. We enjoyed loading our boat at Van Riper State Park for a day of fishing. The drive to the cabin is only 4 miles from there, but is located on a dirt road with many potholes and hard on a trailer. The log cabin is peaceful and isolated from crowds but beware of several cameras located outside on property and aimed at entrances that seem to include some of the inside of cabin (Ex. kitchen and breakfast area). The sauna was unavailable to us due to misuse by a previous renter, but the hot tub was used daily and worked well. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and utensils. The contract for using the VRBO is extensive and contains numerous rules as well as dollar amounts listed for misusing or missing any items on their extensive inventory. There is no written list of rules or directions in the cabin, so you should print the contract and bring it with you which we did not. Lastly, do not expect the check in code to be furnished to you until the night before or early on the day of arrival. The owner says this is to protect their property, but it was inconvenient especially since the door code numbers we were sent were transposed.
