My own home has NEVER been this clean. But then, I have cats. And children. This little Cabin 1 (of 4) was adorbs. I use this word because I'm pretty sure the owner has never heard it before. Our cabin had a grill for hot dogs or burgers only, and that outdoors. No cooking in the cabin. But we had... More

My husband and I stayed in unit 1 which was very cozy, clean and comfortable with a view of the lake that is fantastic! We were there the third week of September and the weather was wonderfully cool. The owners sincerely appreciate their guests. I was curious to spot freighters in the far distance. Nikki immediately brought out her lap... More

We stayed two nights at this Motel as we wanted to see the Taquamemnon Falls (which are nice, but nothing special). This "Motel" consists of 2 Double-Cabins with one room each. The rooms are OK, we slept very well, but the furniture shows a bit wear and tear. However, the benefits and the plus of this place are the location.... More

I stayed in Unit 4. The owners were friendly and helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. My room had a kitchenette and tiny bathroom. It was small and outdated but clean. The wifi didn't work and the owner said they haven't been able to get service in units 3 and 4. The lock was sticky and I had trouble locking... More

Older duplex units, clean rooms - they provided tennis racquet type bug zappers to every room- very close to Lake Superior. Extremely friendly hosts, about 2 miles nort of Paradise, MI., and just a few miles south of Whitefish Point. The Superior Shipwreck Museum is located at Whitefish Point, and a history of the many Lake Superior shipwrecks is outlined... More

Really liked this. Great location maybe 30 feet from Lake Superior. We had a kitchenette and if we were staying longer than one night, would have been great. Coffee maker and coffee provided for first morning. Plenty of hot water and good shower. Two beds..one cushy, one hard. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts. Covered parking which was ideal for our... More

This is a great little property with four cabins set up as two duplexes. The owners really are there to serve and help the visitors. North woods cabins run from 'rustic' to 'modern'. I would rate this more toward the modern side. The inside of the cabin was paneled (no bare logs), and the furniture was 'normal'. We stayed in... More

We stayed here in April for a extended weekend getaway to the UP. We loved this place- very clean, beautiful scenery. We enjoyed watching the Freighters. The owner, Duane, was very accommodating and provided helpful information for local hiking, snowshoeing, etc. Hope to be back!

We stayed here on a September trip to the UP. Found it to be very comfortable and reasonably priced. Place was clean and well maintained and couldn't be much closer to the water if it tried. Great location for checking out Whitefish Point and Tahquamenon Faills
