Our quaint little cabin is located on a beautiful 200+ foot stretch of Lake Superior beach, and is only ten minutes SW of historic Calumet/Laurium, MI. Enjoy the sounds of the waves lapping against the shoreline and Mugguns Creek babbling as it runs through the property. You will be about 18 min NW of Houghton, MI (Michigan Technological University), very accessible. Enjoyable, peaceful, heavenly! Welcome!


A charming, clean, rustic one room cabin on Lake Superior with a private stream running through the property. Here you will be surrounded by fabulous sunsets, a light house off in the distance, and a quiet beach. The beach is mostly sandy on the land side but has small, smooth rocks at the waters edge and in the water. Therefore we recommend water shoes. Or old tennis shoes for wearing in the water. This setting is perfect for collecting colorful rocks and looking for those diamond-in-the-rough agates and fossils.

The cabin has 2 full size beds with linens, blankets, pillows and towels, two church pews, wicker chair and rocker, small wood table and 4 chairs, refrigerator, microwave, electric frying pan, single hot plate, coffee maker, and toaster oven as well as toaster, dishes, and utensils. Paper plates/plastic utensils also. A clean Porta Potty is nearby. Get back to nature and wash your dishes with Lake Superior water, or use the disposable plates. We provide the soap. There is NO running water nor indoor plumbing. But we do supply adequate bottled water. If you need a refreshing shower, there is Lake Superior or for $5/visit you can use Aspirus Fitness Center on Hecla Street in Laurium for exercise and/or just a shower.

The cabin is located between Calumet and Hancock, MI, just off of Lakeshore Rd. Historic Calumet has the historic Calumet Theatre, antique shops, artist galleries, grocery store, dollar store, hospital, restaurants, other historic displays and also a laundromat. Hancock/Houghton have more great shops and Houghton is the home of Michigan Technological University. From a Walmart in Houghton to nice college town restaurants, you will be pleased with the variety. Hiking, kayaking, ATV off-roaring are very accessible. There are a few resale shops for those of that interest, and of course a garage sale for everyone here or there.

But the best is the local history. Tour an old copper mine. Take a day trip to Copper Harbor, and historic Fort Wilkins, and stop to take in the various beaches along the way. If you have the time, take a full day excursion to Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior. Or arrange to stay a night there. We can provide information to help you get to your places of interest or you can research it on-line.

But if you want solitude, peaceful walks on the beach, quiet time to read a book, a sky full of stars at night... this cabin is the best. My husband and I have traveled places around the world, and as we walk the beach and watch yet ANOTHER sunset we exclaim, "It doesn't get any better than this!" The cabin is somewhat humble, but clean, refreshing and exciting! You will want to come back. There is a cabin and house next door on the north side, so it is not isolated, but once you are on the property, it is very private. You are 10 minutes (7 miles) from Historic Calumet.

Доступно гостям

You will be given the key to the cabin and will have private access to the beach, stream, and woods. Please note that there is a clean Porta Potty on the property as there is NO plumbing or running water. We have enjoyed the rustic nature of this set-up and know that you will too. While staying here you will truly feel like you are stepping back in time and will be removed from the busyness of life and be able to enjoy the changing moods of Lake Superior.

Общение с гостями

In the summer my husband and I live in Laurium, approximately 10 minutes away, and are usually available to answer questions and introduce you to the property. We are also always available via phone. Sometimes we do have other plans but then make arrangements for you to get into our welcoming cabin with some directions and key information.

Другие важные подробности

You may not even desire a shower after swimming in refreshing Lake Superior, but if you do, Aspirus Fitness Center in Laurium (about 8 min away) has showers/fitness center. You can buy a day-pass any day for $5, by walking in. They are located at 342 Hecla St in Laurium.

One of our favorite snacks in the Copper Country is from Peterson's smoked fish shop. It is run by native descendants at the top of the Quincy hill which is located on US 41 as you go N toward Calumet in the Keweenaw Peninsula, coming from Hancock. On your right will be an unmistakable old metal mine hoist... the Quincy Copper Mine... and on your left will be the little white building of Peterson's fish market. The smoked lake trout is inexpensive, fresh, and excellent. The fresh fish is one of the easiest meals to fix!

At some point during your stay in the Keweenaw you might want to make a loop around the Peninsula driving from Calumet up US 41 beyond Mohawk and then making a left to go to Eagle River and Eagle Harbor. Further there are options to explore Brockway Mountain Drive, the quaint village of Copper Harbor, Estavant Pines (virgin woods outside of Copper Harbor), and the biking trails at the very tip of the peninsula. Heading back towards Calumet on US 41 you will drive through a stretch of road called the "Covered Road", as the trees overhang quite a bit, which is scenic.

A side trip on the way home can also take you to one of our favorite places which is a bit out of the way: Bete Gris Beach. To get there you can head East off of US 41 down the Lac La Belle road. You will see Mt. Bohemia on the left near the bottom of the hill (midwestern "extreme" skiing), and then continue to Bete Gris, where you can hang out on the beautiful beach and look out on the Nature Conservancy's biggest purchase in Michigan (the entire tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula).

Suggested places to eat:
The Library, Houghton
Fitzgerald Restaurant, Eagle River
Harbor Haus, Copper Harbor
The Hut Inn, just outside Calumet North on 41 a few miles (prices reasonable, a good place for Sunday lunch).
Michigan House, Calumet
Carmelita's, Calumet
Toni's Country Kitchen, Laurium (a local favorite for breakfast or lunch, closes 5pm, cash only, busy so may be slow). This is the place to try a Finish favorite, a pasty. Buy one to take on a picnic with butter and ketchup. On Wednesdays they serve cabbage rolls which are often gone before 12 and reserve yours early.

Best Hikes:
1) Lookout Mountain (also known as Mt. Baldy) near Eagle Harbor.
2) Bare Bluff, located beyond Bete Gris.
There is a little red book in the cabin that will tell you how to find these and other hiking places. Use book but then leave in cabin please.

Also shorter easier hikes not too far from cabin. One starts in McLain State Park and goes south to the Breakwaters. I highly recommend you go there, even if drive. Walk out on the dock at the Breakwaters. Another, as go north on Lakeshore Rd, on your right across from the Calumet Waterworks Park, about just a mile+ from our cabin.

Sorry, but we do not allow smoking in our cabin or on our property, nor do we allow pets. We hope that you will enjoy your stay and leave the cabin in the condition that you found it. In general we abide by the "Golden Rule" and hope that you will too!

Please bag up your garbage (bags in cabin) and place in the rusty barrel on the side of Fisherman's Rd where you park your car. We will pick up your garbage after you leave and discard it. If you stay for a week, we will do a quick garbage pick up from the barrel mid week.

The Porta-John is emptied by a company on Wednesday mornings between 9am and 12 noon. Please park your car a little away from the property entrance to leave room for the cleaning truck on Wednesday mornings. We of course clean the rest of the Porta-John between guests.

If beach bonfire, make sure you cover it with sand before going to bed at night. We leave a shovel nearby for you to use. Make sure the fire is out before leaving the property.

At the end of the day, we recommend not leaving anything on the beach overnight. No lawn chairs nor your personal belongings. If there should be a storm, the waves may come to the edge of the small bluff and wash your things away.

If go off the property for a day trip, please close the WINDOWS and door. The weather can be as sunny as ever, with blue skies, but can change quickly. We don't want your bedding or groceries to get wet from an unexpected rain.

Before you leave, please strip the beds that you used and place the sheets and pillow cases in a pile on a wooden section of the floor near the door. Any towels, wash clothes used, can also be placed on this same pile. Please wash any dishes used. We will fix the beds and sweep up, dust etc after we wash the sheets.

Thank you for your loving care of our place. You have taken such great care of it and we really appreciate that!!

You will love Phyllis and her charming beach cabin. She and her husband really are SUPER hosts. This is a relaxing and comfortable place, where you can unwind. There is ample comfy seating both indoors and outdoors to take in the beauty of the area. While there is no plumbing, things are really well set up to be very convenient. I slept more comfortably than in my own bed. If you like to hear the sound of waves as you fall asleep, this is your place. My family and enjoyed walking on the beach, having campfires, and waking up to coffee in the comfy reclining lawn chairs overlooking the beach. The yard was sunny and spacious and my 3 year old had a blast playing in the yard, on the beach. We enjoyed experiencing the unique history and natural beauty of the area. There is so much to explore nearby, we hope next time we can spend a week!

Thank you Melissa for your very kind review! We really enjoyed meeting you and your family. Your little boy is a dream. He seems so vibrant and happy! And Bob enjoyed meeting Ramon! You are certainly welcome back any time! Yes, there is much to explore in the area. We are STILL finding new things to see and do after years and years of living in or visiting the Keweenaw! We would stay up here all winter if there was less snow. Oh, the pink flowers are simply sweet peas. So many of the wild flowers including the sweet peas just grow along the road sides. The flowers, the birds, the lake with its waves, the fishing and the stars do make a natural paradise. And I would love to send your pretty sweater back to you if you want to let me know of an address to which I could mail it.

I loved every minute of my vacation while staying at Phyllis's cabin. She was so prepaid for everything anyone could need. I very much look forward to staying again. As I told her it's a small slice of heaven here on earth. Waking to the sound of crashing waves in the morning and falling asleep to them was so relaxing. Sitting by a fire watching the sunsets will take your breath away. Loved it all!

My sister and I had a fantastic stay at Phyllis and Bob's rustic cabin. Such a wonderful little place! The space is well equipped with just about everything you could possibly need for your stay. It is just as advertised. Some may find the lack of running water or a Port-a-potty a tad inconvenient, but we weren't bothered by that at all. The cabin is cozy and comfortable, and of course, you just can't beat beautiful Lake Superior right out your front door! It's also a great jumping off point if you're looking to explore the area. Phyllis is a wealth of knowledge about the Keweenaw and her recommendations from where to dine to what trails to hike, are spot on. She and Bob are wonderful hosts, making this cabin the perfect place to escape and enjoy the beauty of the U.P.

I'm so glad this worked out for all of us. I'm still curious to know if you hiked up Look Out mountain on your own. You must be in great shape physically! I'm glad you enjoyed Hunters Point. Another easier but interesting hike is called, I believe, the Monk's Trail. It starts off on a road outside of Eagle River and is in an area E of the Jam Pot. I went on it with a group of ladies several years ago. We had a narrator which made it more interesting. Hungarian Falls in Hubbell, MI (between Lake Linden and Hancock) is also pretty...not real long or difficult but nice. Another place I think you would find interesting is Rabbit Island, if my other son Rob from NYC (almost 39 yrs old) were up here and could boat you over for several hours. But his schedule is sometimes iffy when he's up here. Check out Rabbit Island in Lake Superior on the web and you can find out more. You truly are great guests. I'm almost afraid that you work too hard cleaning it up. You are truly perfect (and delightful) guests!! Thank you!

The cabin was absolutely beautiful, and Phyllis did a great job of making it feel like home. She filled the place with snacks, water, and gave us great tips on local places to eat and do fun things like hiking, kayaking, etc. The cabin itself was feet from the private beach, and you could hear the waves at night. It was very relaxing. Thanks again Phyllis!

Phyllis and her husband, Bob, were very welcoming and detailed in their communications. It had been years since I 'camped' and asked Phyllis for her meal suggestions. She provided a detailed menu of her favorite meals at the rustic cabin — along with what to pack and where to find the freshest Lake Superior fish! I used almost all of her dining suggestions, including having breakfast at Toni's Country Kitchen (highly recommend). The cabin itself was VERY clean — the bedding smelled fresh and not a spect of dust in sight! Fresh flowers greeted us and so did plenty of extra supplies from snacks in the fridge to extra quilts. The beach and Lake Superior views are fantastic, and I slept wonderfully listening to the waves each night!

Thank you Ashley and Evan! It sounds like you had a nice time! Yes, whether the lake is calm, or rolling with waves, it is mesmerizing to watch and so peaceful. And it is definitely refreshing to swim in if not too wild and wavy. I was concerned that you might get all rain with the weather changes in September. But I think you did get some sunshine and even a sunset if you were 'home'. I'm glad the menu ideas were helpful also. We are so glad that you ventured up to the Keweenaw Peninsula and want to thank you for staying with us!

My wife and I stayed a week at Phyllis and Bob cabin during our honeymoon. They are the nicest host , they had the cabin ready for us with all the supplies we need that we didn't bring with us from home. They give us ideas for restaurants and places to see in the Keweenaw Peninsula. A lovely spot on Lake Superior to watch the sunsets and the Northern Lights. It was a week that we won't forget and we can't wait to come back again. Phyllis and Bob are great host to us . Thank you for letting us spend our Honeymoon in your cabin !! God Bless, Adrianna & John Turner

Thank you John and Adrianna! You are really a great couple. You are both very kind people it seems. We were so glad that you were able to spend your honeymoon up here in our cabin, surrounded by God's natural beauty. We met a couple visiting up here from Florida who wanted to go to ICELAND to see the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis. Just think of all the money and time you saved! You got to see them in the sky over Lake Superior! You picked the right night/nights for your wedding and honeymoon! John and Adrianna, you are certainly welcome back any time it works out for you! God bless you and your marriage! Phyllis and Bob
