How lucky were we to stumble upon this little gem?! Rolled in last minute for one night. Ann was a friendly, helpful host. The little boat was so cute. The space was set up perfectly. A bathroom in the back of an old VW bug? Yes please!

We had a lovely time staying at the Big Dipper. It was the perfect space for my husband, teenage daughter, and myself. We all slept very comfortably in the boat. We had a great time sitting on the dock, listening to the nature sounds, sitting by our campfire, and playing fetch with the farm dog Daisy. We would highly recommend staying at the Big Dipper. We'll be back!

The farm is a peaceful oasis. Ann and Burnell, and Daisy the resident dog, were so friendly and welcoming. The boat is not the most typical lodging, but it was all the more charming for it. The sleeping surface was both level and comfortable, which made for a wonderful night's sleep. We fell asleep to the sound of frogs and woke to songbirds and woodpeckers eagely looking for a snack. The resident chickens were also beautiful, and their eggs made for a great breakfast ahead of a day of riding along the south shore of Lake Superior. We would definitely recommend and hope to stay there again.

This place was awesome! Wonderful and helpful hosts, cute camp site on really nice land. The actual boat/sleep area is pretty rustic but clean and comfortable, and the screens/netting were great for keeping out bugs. The covered cooking area was convenient and they even provide clean water and water disposal for dishes. Their super friendly dog Daisy spent a lot of time around, which was super fun. There were 2 other cabins for rent near the boat, but plenty of space/privacy for each rental. Overall, really great experience and I encourage others to check it out! Hosts, thanks for sharing your lovely land!
