Cottage was clean. Cottages and furniture were both a little tired. Beach area is so-so. Cottage was nice sized with 2 bedrooms and a comfortable living/dining area. Was nice to have a clean laundry building with multiple units that was not busy.

Old but very clean. Friendly owners. Nice beach and campfire spot. We had our daughter and granddaughters, 5 and 9, come along at the last minute. I thought that the 80 extra charge was a bit much. They slept on a blow up with their own sheets, we were gone all day and they didnt use sowers as they were... More

We had #7, two bedrooms plus a living area/kitchen. There's also a grill & picnic table. Good value. Quiet and peaceful in the trees, the property is on the lake so it's a short walk from your cabin door down to Lake Superior. They have kayaks and canoes you can borrow for free (plus they have life jackets you can... More

The hosts were very friendly. The location is superb with a nice little beach on Lake Superior. Room was clean and everything worked fine. I only stayed one night and it was great. I would definately recommend this resort for a week long get away.

This is a very quiet and peaceful place. With a nice beach and free use of boats on Lake superior, you get some great value. While the facility is not new, they keep it very clean. To have use of our own picnic table, grill, two good size rooms, coin operated laundry, and reasonable distance from Lake of the Clouds... More

We are a family of four and stayed over Memorial Day weekend. We were given cabin #7, a two bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen/living room. It was right next to the road, but given the little traffic, especially at night, it was not a problem at all.The owners were wonderful and interesting to talk to. We have been to Ontonagon many...

We stayed here for our running of the Porcupine Mountains Trail Marathon (we only ran the half). We stayed to hike the park and travel up the peninsula to enjoy the area. We stayed in the cottage called Blueberry Ridge. The cottage was a little older, but clean. The walk out to the lake was less than 100 yards. We... More

Cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at Petersons! Chuck and Wendy were very nice people. Because of the freezing temps, the cottage we rented busted a pipe. They were fast to put us in another cottage. A bigger one at that! We will definitely be back to stay!

My fiancé and I just got back from this fine place. Wendy and Chuck were nice and we had a 9 hour drive there and couldn't make the 4pm check in time but they were very accommodating. You get a huge supply of wood and for 5 bucks Chuck will come and refill it for you. So yay awesome fireplace... More
