The main floor consist of a free standing wood fireplace, new appliances (refrigerator, stove, microwave), coffee maker, all the pots and pans needed for cooking, oak paneling, new sofa sleeper, satellite TV, and a half bath. Upstairs, find a large main bedroom with queen bed, futon in sitting area, maple paneling, and a full bath (walk-in shower) with washer/dryer.

About Carl & Michelle Treankler

Carl and I both have roots to Wisconsin as that is where we grew up and went to school. We lived in small family businesses our whole lives. Mine was the grocery business and Carl electrical manufacturing. Currently, Carl is a shareholder of 2 family businesses in Pulaski, WI. After we bought the property, the decision was made to move to Houghton and live on the property in order to fulfill our dream of building a camp. Our work continues to grow day in and day out with the many opportunities this property gives us.

Carl & Michelle Treankler purchased this barn in 2011

Why Carl & Michelle Treankler chose Michigan

The story begins with my husband's son attending Michigan Tech. After his first year he wanted to live off campus. Advising him to find a property that he could fix up and then possibly sell after he graduated, Carl's son began the hunt; but with many dead ends. When we told the realtor to open it up to see what was out there, this magnificent property came to light. Sitting on 200 acres, with a 10 acre lake, it was 'love' at first site. My husband purchased the property and 3 months later brainstormed the idea of starting an outdoor bible camp for high school kids, church groups, or sport teams. Already being a big supporter to Camp Luther, in Three Lakes, WI, Carl started the plan to make this area their base camp. With an old barn that hunters used stayed in, an old homestead, a 600 square foot cabin, and double wide home residing on the property, it became clear there was much work to be done. Having the vision of creating something great, we began the construction of a pavilion, addition to cabin, and complete gut out of the barn. With these projects done, new ones continue to begin in transforming the property into a premiere camp for kids. Future projects consist of high/low ropes course, zip line, frisbee golf, basketball court, welcome center, and additional camp sites.

The barn stands alone as it is a quarter mile away from the camp. Looking out from the upper deck on the barn, you can enjoy watching the geese fly in on the pond that also lies on the property. A great spot to watch some wildlife.

Bookings are on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis!

What makes this barn unique

The property also consists of an early 1900's apple orchard. You can go out and pick apples then enjoy making your very own apple pie. Huge variety of apples throughout the property.

The 10 acre lake provides great catch and release fishing of brook trout, rainbow trout, brown trout, and walleye. Oh, and did I mention the name of the lake is called 'Love Lake.'

Great cabin in the country that is close to Copper Country attractions

  • 5 of 5

We loved the wood paneling, large modern kitchen and spacious accommodations for our family of 5. Everything in the cabin was top notch - great job on the renovation of the barn! It even has A/C - a rarity in Michigan's usually cool UP. Very clean and well maintained and was exactly as advertised. Close to Houghton and Hancock and Copper Harbor (one of the most beautiful spots in the US). We would definitely recommend this cabin and stay here again.
