Our stay was wonderful! We had beautiful weather, perfect for kayaks, sitting by the fire, relaxing in our hammock, and just taking in nature. When other reviews or the description says you only need to bring food and clothes, it’s not lying! We had a family of 5, so we packed quite a bit of stuff, but the cabin has most everything you could need. Firewood, dishes, bedding, even towels. Games and coloring stuff for the kiddos, kayaks and lifejackets, toilet paper, lol. It was pretty wonderful. We didn’t get to use the sauna as it was a little too warm, but next time we will! The hosts were so friendly and showed us around their farm and we got to pet all the animals. The bugs weren’t bad at all, my kids were in the woods a bunch and in the long grass and we didn’t see one tick, there were a few mosquitoes but not enough to bother us, and also some horseflies. My husband said he got bit a couple times but there weren’t many at all. It was very comfortable and very relaxing! Don’t go expecting to swim though, except for smaller kiddos, as even in the middle of the lake, it’s maybe waist deep, but it was absolutely perfect for kayaking plus there are many places around to swim! We would definitely love to visit again and have already recommended it to many friends/family who were interested. Many great sights nearby to visit or perfect just to stay and relax and not go anywhere. Overall an amazing piece of the U.P.

Such a great stay! Host was super welcoming and helpful, and provided lots of wonderful amenities. Property felt secluded yet Craig was a text away if we needed anything. The gorgeous view of the private lake made the experience all the more special. We had a great time kayaking, pike fishing, and having camp fires. Would recommend to a friend and would absolutely stay here again!

If you are looking for a beautiful, secluded cabin right on a lake, this is the place for you! It did not disappoint.

The cabin is cute and Marina and Craig provided linens/pillows/kitchen cookware and everything you needed to enjoy your trip. You only need to bring flood, ice and drinks. The windows need to be opened the whole time or it will get quite toasty in the cabin. We loved listening to nature at night.

The sunset is amazing on the lake! The lake is incredibly shallow, the description wasn’t kidding. We went out on the kayaks every day to fish and watch the sunset. Got stuck a couple times in the muck/weeds or sand banks so be careful if you are kayaking near the shore. We were able to see several bald eagles, including 3 immature baldies that were constantly hanging out near the kayaks. Osprey, Sandhill cranes, Terns and Egrets were the most common birds we saw.

The hosts provide water for you to do dishes, and drink if you like well water. Only thing that was not enjoyable was the pitted toilet. It smelled incredibly bad, worse than some port-a-potties I have been in and the air fresheners didn’t even put a dent in the smell.

Outside of that, everything was fantastic! We caught a LOT of Pike in the lake (northeast side of the lake) and cooked them over the fire! Delicious! We didn’t get a chance to use the sauna, it was just too hot that weekend, but if we come in the fall/winter, we will try it out! The stars are beautiful out here and not once did I feel unsafe. There is a little trail on the property but it dead ends at a tree stand. We weren’t brave enough to make out own path through the woods.

We never met Craig, but Marina was pleasant to speak with and very accommodating! Wonderful weekend getaway (even our dog had a blast!).

Adorable cabin!!Bonfire while the sun sets Those colors! beautiful!Kayaking during sunset=highlight of trip

The cabin was perfect for our family! Craig was really helpful upon our arrival, showing us how to work the electiricty and get the propane started. Our three boys loved swimming and kayaking in the shallow lake. The sauna was a nice addition - not only was it relaxing, but it really did take the place of much needed showers after hiking each day. We ventured out everyday, but next time I'd plan to spend more time exploring the property and National Forest right next door. We definitely plan to visit again!

Wonderful weekend - Craig the host couldn’t have made us more welcome, gave us a nice orientation to the property and the facilities. Well equipped clean cabin, in a beautiful secluded lakeside setting. Excellent fishing on Moss lake and wildlife to view around the farm - eagles, pelicans, deer and turkeys. Thank you
