Perfect Little Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Joe's cabin was great! We had an amazing weekend hanging by the woodstove, hunting, reading, and playing cards. It was only two of us and the dog, but you could have slept many more upstairs. The only reason this cabin did not get 5 stars is that it did smell like smoke more than anticipated. However, in the description it does say that smoking is allowed, so to be fair, we should have expected that. Overall, the cabin was perfect and the faint smoke smell is not enough to make us not want to come back! Thanks, Joe!

Lovely Cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend had a lovely time staying here! It is far away from everything, but close enough to what you need. It is on a road that you can go either way depending on your destination. We had 4G there which was really nice, as most places surrounding did not (which I prefer, but it is nice to have signal at home base in case of a family emergency or what not). The place was clean and cozy. I loved the large windows! There is a nice little video library, and Netflix was available. Most of the time we spent out and about, so this was a nice place to return to at night. It would have been nice to have one of the beds in the loft in the middle. Sleeping 2 people in one bed I felt a little cramped (I sleep on the inside), but it really was no big deal. We would definitely return. We absolutely love the area, and this place was perfect for our adventure. Joe was a wonderful host, and always available. Thank you so much Joe! It was a pleasure!

Northwoods solitude

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd New Years week that my family of 5 has spent at the Baker Hill Bunker. Once again we enjoyed the peace and quiet and solitude of the Northwoods. Our German Shepherd was quite at home and enjoyed the stay as well. It was accessable even in snowy conditions and power stayed on even after 2.5 feet of snow. Thanks again Joe for offering this rustic Northwoods retreat.

Sugarloaf trip with some college friends

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for the five of us to hangout and a twin bed for each to sleep. The cabin was clean, everything worked properly, and there was even firewood provided for the wood stove. It was a quick and easy drive to Sugarloaf in the morning too. Joe was kind and quick to reply every time I messaged him. We all agreed to make the trip out again next year!

Perfect rustic cabin in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was awesome!! Stayed here for a couple's weekend getaway, but would definitely recommend this for a skiing/hiking trip for a group of friends, as well. The cabin was spacious, well maintained, had a full kitchen with all appliances, full bathroom, and TV and wifi. It's pretty secluded and close to many skiing/hiking/recreation options.

There is a Walmart and a grocery store about 30 minutes away. We got pizza and beer at a store called the General nearby in Salem that we highly recommend! Our corgi loved it, too! We definitely want to come back!

Located at the top of Baker Hill in Salem Township, we are accessible by road or direct link from ITS 84. We are halfway between Sugarloaf and Saddleback making for a great skiing variety. The trail to ITS 84 can aslo be used for a cross county ski trip exploring the woods on the north side of Baker Hill.
