First I want to complement you on getting the spelling right for certain areas you refer to.
I don't know if this is something you are thinking of or not but you could stay in a cabin on a lake in Curtis, which is near Tahquamenon Falls and Seney Wildlife Refuge and use that as a main base for a few days and then get a place around Lake Gogebic to be near the Porcupine Mountains.
This may work if you can find a place that will rent for a few days rather then a week rental. Since you will be here when tourism is slowing down, it maybe possible.
Just for information - the distance between Paradise and the Porcupine Mountains is 270 miles.
