Looking for a remote cabin for a romantic getaway or a relaxing time in the big Northwoods? Ellen’s cabin is off-grid (12volt DC, solar), has no running water and limited cellphone service. It’s 1/2 a mile from a dirt road which is a portion of the North Country Trail, sitting in the rugged Michigamme Highlands, close to Silver Lake and Dead River Basins.
The cabin is fully equipped and is 45 minutes from Ishpeming and an hour from Marquette. There is a wood stove and back-up propane for heat, a gas stove and small grill for cooking and a small fridge.
There is a double bed, two single beds and a pull-out futon and all bedding is provided. There is also an open area upstairs for yoga or for children to play.
There is a fire ring with wood provided, a deck with great views of the Mulligan escarpment and an outhouse.
There are lots of opportunities to see birds and other wildlife and for this reason we do not allow dogs, hunting or motorized sports.

We spent 6 days at Ellen’s cabin and it was truly the tranquil escape that we were seeking. We were looking for a rustic off grid escape but with some creature comforts like an outhouse and solid structure to sleep and cook in. We live in the metro Detroit area and the true silence at Ellen’s cabin is something to behold. We explored all parts of the UP during our stay (over 1500 miles of driving!) and Ellen’s cabin was our base camp to come back too! Victoria had a huge supply of wood for us along with a filled 50 gallon water tank. Thanks for a great stay!
