Are stay was very relaxing. We walked in and there was are first freighter. When we weren't watching for freighters, we were watching the car ferry go back and forth to Neebish Island. Wonderful stay, going back!!

Amazing Freighters!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so close to the water as the freighters enter a narrow channel of the St. Marys River, allowing you to see them up close and to see the crew waving to us on shore! The views are amazing. The large windows and open interior design make this small cottage seem much roomier. It was supplied with everything we needed for our time there. There are both sunrises and sunsets over the water, making it very relaxing, yet fun to watch all the boat traffic. There are also several other attractions that made for good day trips. Staying here was a truly unique and enjoyable experience!

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

Along with my mother and aunt, we had a wonderful time. The cabin is beautiful, the view is spectacular. There was everything we could ever want and need in the cabin. The three of us had been going to the Barbeau area our whole lives. Staying here brought back so many good memories. The freighters are so close you feel like you could just reach out and touch them. Thank you for the opportunity to cross this off my bucket list and we look forward to staying here again.
