Property was as described. We loved our stay and had the best vacation. The beach was wonderful, we were all able to swim in Lake Superior and we were able to see the northern lights. The property owner and manager were great to work with. Would definitely like to stay here again.

I can't wait to go back. Already planning a winter trip.

The cottage seems to be the oldest of the properties at this location and has its charm. It was just enough space for my family of four. The location is excellent. It’s close to Copper Harbor and Houghton, so ideal if you want to explore surrounding areas. The beach was great for rock hunting. Phillip even provided blue lights to hunt for sodalites at night and my daughter did find one! There was a very nice nature reserve close by that we stumbled upon. A very nice trail with lots of variation and wildlife. We saw a coyote which was cool. Phillip was quick to respond to messages, which I greatly appreciated. A great spot for a low key family vacation.

Just a delightful location on the lake. Cottage is as-advertised and a wonderful place to stay.

Nice property located close to beach. The property was well maintained, with an antique touch. We had a comfortable stay grilling and having a fire. View of the lake was amazing.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage is well-equipped, charming and has access to a private beach. We even could kayak long the Lake Superior lakeshore. Highly recommended.

My husband and I brought our dogs for a vacation the week of Memorial Day and had a great time. The cottage was comfortable and clean with Lake Superior a quick walk from our front door. It is a beautiful location and feels very private at the end of road. I had tried to contact Phillip before arriving with a few questions but was unable to reach him or leave a VM as the mailbox was full. Sent a message through VRBO but did not receive a response. When we arrived at the house we were told that Phillip was out of town. It made us nervous that if we had an actual emergency we had no way to communicate with the owner. I appreciate that this cottage is quite old but the squeaky floors and bathroom door that doesn’t close I feel that the house could use some updates/maintenance. The queen bed was very nice, the living room furniture looks cute but far from comfortable. We had issues with the internet/tv every evening, losing connection halfway through movies Overall we had a great time exploring the peninsula with our dogs and walking the shore every evening.

We had a fantastic stay at this great little cottage. Peaceful area with wonderful views of the lake. We had everything we needed there and we would definitely book with them again.
