We were very impressed with this little place in Paradise, MI. When we called checking to see if our pets would be allowed, Duanne cautioned us that the mosquitos were really bad! We appreciated his honesty, but came anyway. He wasn't exaggerating :) The units are simple & small, but very clean and very affordable. Beds were comfortable and untis... More

We loved this cozy little place. Spotless clean, nice kitchen area. No microwave or oven but every thing else was provided. Its right on the water with deck! Owners are friendly and care about guest. Its pet friendly , but no place for dogs to run free. We would rather stay at a Mom and Pop motel than cookie cutter... More

We not only stayed this year on April 17th, but stayed for The Fitz's Memorial Service back in November and on both occasions, Duane and Nikki were very accommodating. The cabin was clean, the driveway was free of snow, the cabin was warm, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom/shower was spotless. Obviously the view was outstanding over-looking Whitefish... More

We came and stayed for a few nights and were instantly welcomed by Duanne. The whole time we were there it was snowing really bad and he made sure we were able to get in and out easily and made sure we had everything we needed. I loved the rooms and loved how close to the water they were. We... More

We came on December 28 and it was great. We were the only ones in the place. I think there are only four cabins. The owner was very nice. The view of Lake Superior was amazing. I bet summer is even better because they have grills and a dock to sit on.

Stayed here during the fall color season when Paradise is a much quieter place than it is in the summer. I chose Freighters View initially because the price was good and they offered online reservations. I also liked the positive reviews it had received from other TripAdvisor members. Booking was easy and Nikki, one of the owners, even sent me... More

We stayed two nights in October 2013. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and the cabin was cozy and very clean. The view out onto the lake was amazing! The evening communal fire gave us a chance to meet other guests. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We only stayed one night, but it was great. The bed was comfortable, we could park right up next to our cabin, and there was a gorgeous view. Also, the rooms were very clean. And the owners are the nicest people. We accidentally left behind our camera charger and the owner is sending it back to us no charge! They... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a cooking cabin. The cabin was great-had everything that you need on a vacation along with a very peaceful setting. Cabin was very clean and comfortable.

On a motorcycle trip and found ourselves staying 4 days. Very nice. Nothing special but enjoyed our stay. Owner is very nice and knowledgeable. All units have carports. Nice for motorcycles. Great decks over the water.
