We had looked forward to our trip here and been impressed with the kindness of the owners when we had to reschedule our reservations. However, when we first entered our cottage, it smelled like rotten garbage. We later decided the smell was coming from the kitchen drain. The shower floor was covered with peeling paint and got slimy when it... More

If you want an honest description of Saunders cabins then read on. My wife and I found these little comfy UP NORTH STYLE cabins to be simply delightful. All we needed to use was there just bring your own food. Chris and Robin have been doing updates as mush as they can but I would not change the atmosphere of... More

I was expecting a rustic cabin....I wasn't expecting the cigarette burn holes in the couch cushions and the lingering smell of cigarette smoke. We arrived late, so I immediately checked in and payed. I should have checked the place out first...although we wouldn't of had many other options in Paradise, plus we had our 6 month old with us and... More

My husband, mother and I stayed at Saunders Sunrise Cabins in June 2012. We drove past on the way to the Museum on Whitefish Bay. At first we thought, "Oh my" because they looked small; but once inside we thought, “What Fun!” The cabins look out onto the lake so the view is spectacular. The cabins are clean and well... More

Six darling little housekeeping cabins on Whitefish Bay near the point in eastern UP. If you want a vacation where you can live with the lake, swim on a luscious all sand beach with the warmer water of the bay, watch freighters in the distance, enjoy campfires with neighbors and the owners, this is it. Close by Shipwreck Museum, an... More

We commorate the sinking of the Edmond Fitzgerald the first weekend of November. We represent the Stu Rockerfellow Amateur Radio Society from Plymouth, MI.

The cabin was very cute and cozy. I enjoyed the couch and the beds were nice and firm. The furnace was a bit loud, but it kept us warm. Since it is a cabin, I suggest one brings slippers for the winter time because the floors are cold (I thought of this before hand). Cabin #4 did not have an... More

We originally booked 2 days. We left after the first day... first thing in the morning. Our kids were even freaked out. The lake was beautiful and kayaking/ canoeing was tons of fun. However we dreaded going back into the cabin. It was sort of clean, but none of us wanted to sit down. Everything was so old and used.... More

We've stayed several times with Chris and Robin. They always welcome our standard poodle as much as the rest of our family. These cabins are the best part of the UP - beachfront, gorgeous sunrises, campfires, great hosts, and proximity to so many activities. We love to fish on the Taq, visit area lighthouses, collect agates at Whitefish Point, pick... More

I have been staying at the sunrise cabins for 6 years and have already made my reservation for this year! It is quiet and clean and chris and robin are excellent hosts. The cabins have seen tons of updates since my first trip in 2004. I especially liked the remodeled bath and last year the new matresses were the best!... More
