Beautiful property with an amazing view

We had a great relaxing time at the house. Weather was beautiful allowing us to experience the colors of Michigan from the deck. Would recommend to any family or group looking to reconnect with nature and enjoy the UP.

Modern cabin with views of the canal

The property is a beautiful 3 mile drive from Houghton. The cabin has a view of the canal and the countryside across the canal. Everything is well done and modern for a very comfortable stay. We would definitely stay there if we are in Houghton again.
