Why Owner/ Manager chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

One of the only flat approach to the water on the entire lake, you can launch a small boat or jet ski right in the yard. Shallow water is perfect for kids in the summer and the ice fishing is great in the winter.

What makes this cottage unique

Unlike other camp properties in the area our vacation home has been completely renovated. We even invested in a state of the art water filtration system.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The house is nicely renovated, comfortable beds and linens. Our kids loved playing in the water and trying out the paddle board. One day we set up a kayaking tour on Lake Superior, which was beautiful, and to come back and relax in the hot tub was a bonus! Thank you sharing your beautiful home!!! (And yes the driveway is steep)

Beautiful, Well-Maintained Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Tuuris have done a spectacular job of making guests feel at home - you literally feel like you're stepping into your own home for your weekend getaway. From the fresh linens, to the fully stocked kitchen with updated appliances, to the kid's toys and crafts, to the separate cozy master suite, it was perfect. The house was spotless. Outside, they've thought of everything as well. The firepit is great for bonfires and s'mores. The hot tub is set atop the very edge of a raised deck, giving a panoramic view of the gorgeous Dead River Basin. The provided kayaks, row boat, and stand up paddle board are a nice touch, too; we got a ton of use out of them!

The location couldn't have been more perfect - only 10 minutes from Marquette, yet the setting feels peaceful and serene. As others have said, take heed of the driveway warning - it's very steep! Without a 4WD /AWD vehicle, you may make it down, but chances are you won't make it back up. Be sure you follow this suggestion.

Overall, we are more than pleased with our stay and plan to make this our getaway spot in the future. If you're considering this property for your stay, don't even give it a second thought - just do it!

Great rental and great location

  • 5 of 5

Entirety of this rental is great. The property itself--lake, kayaks, grounds, etc are really nice. Quiet and fun. Inside is very clean, well equipped (kitchen, towels, bedding etc). No complaints whatsoever, had a great time. Subaru outback and toyota highlander fine on the driveway. I rode bikes out the door (well, walked up driveway...) on 510, trails, Noquemenon etc. etc. Location is really good.

Owners are really nice, very helpful, accessible, and responsive. Information and instructions on property are simple and clear.

Only downside is we could only stay a couple of days. Highly recommended, would definitely rent again.

Fit our needs perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Marquette for the week for our daughter's wedding so the location of the property was ideal. The listing description was accurate. It was very clean and we were comfortable there. If I could change anything it would be that all three bedrooms could accommodate 2 adults. The setting is so quiet and peaceful, it was so nice to be able to relax on the large, well furnished deck with a hot tub. The owners of this property are great people and provided excellent service. I would recommend this place.

Beautiful quiet get-away... On water!

  • 5 of 5

It was all very clean and well layed out. The driveway is steep, which is mentioned in the description. I only used my 4wd truck and had no problem. (It's honestly kind of fun, I'd like to go back in the winter for sledding)There were plenty of dishes, towels and Camelbak water bottles. It has a great view of the water and the hot tub is amazing. I will be renting this place again, especially since I found out my buddy owns the place next door. Thank you so much!

Fantastic rental and location!

  • 5 of 5

We found paradise and will definitely be returning! We rented several times near Gwinn and wanted to find a place that was still quiet, yet closer to Marquette. This rental was absolutely perfect. Loved the peaceful location and the lakefront - yet still being 10 min away from Marquette restaurants, shopping, and the downtown area.

The property was meticulously updated and you can tell the owners take pride in the home and outdoor spaces. Inside the house was well-appointed with a stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. They really have everything you need - which is great when traveling with two small children. We didn't need to pack nearly as much and having a washer/dryer is a nice extra. The place was VERY clean - so appreciated because you get that feeling right away when checking in this is going to be a nice property.

The outdoor spaces are fantastic. Brand new deck with a hot tub overlooking the peaceful lake (in fact, we now want a similar hot tub in our backyard!). Very nice outdoor furniture, grill, fire pit area, and use of outdoor toys and kayaks. The water entry is initially shallow which is great for little kids. We spent a lot of time kayaking, fishing, swimming and just simply relaxing. We stayed over the 4th of July and there was even a boat parade where the locals tossed candy to the little ones! Such a nice community and residents.

Owners are very responsive to any questions and are incredibly pleasant. Seth reached out ahead of our stay to confirm we had AWD. Please be sure to heed that warning or be prepared to park at the top of the hill. They also have a sign at the top of the hill, so there is no excuse not knowing! On the plus side, walking up the hill a couple of times in the morning was what I used to combat vacation indulgences. :)

We've rented quite a bit through VRBO, domestic and international, and this was truly one of the best experiences. That very first day we were already making plans to return again!
