Felt like we lived there
My family and my sister-in-law's family stayed at Noochie's Nest for 6 days this August (4 adults, 3 "tweenage" kids, 2 dogs). We had a really nice time exploring Ontonagon and the Porcupine Mountains, and just hanging out at the house. Highlights were the Presque Isle waterfalls in the Porkies, pasties from Syl's and pie from Lynn's, and picking blackberries in the back yard. Plus Lake Superior sunsets, watching the Olympics in the living room, and just having time away from home to relax and take a breath. I was a bit concerned about there being just one bathroom, but that worked out fine. A fan for ventilation in the bathroom might have been nice (not a big deal). The downstairs bedroom has glass doors to the dining/ living area, so if the people in there want to go to bed before others, they might want to have a darker cloth to cover the windows (it has a white lace-like curtain which gives privacy, just doesn't block the light very well). Kitchen was well equipped. There is no clothes washer, but there is a coin laundry in town. Wifi worked fine. And as others have noted, it was nice and clean, and great to be able to have the pets there. On the outside, the big side yard and blackberries were delightful surprises! Also it was a "just right" distance to walk downtown, and we did so quite a few times. Ontonagon is at an interesting point between the mining/timber economy and growing tourist economy. The 15 minute drive to the Porkies was worth it for the chance to have the whole house and be within walking distance of downtown. One day of our stay, we got a rustic cabin in the Porkies. Two of us stayed there the night, while the rest (including the dogs), stayed at Noochie's. This worked well, because the cabins in the park do not allow pets (although the trails and campsites do). We did not see much of Brenda, but we didn't need to. She brought fresh towels mid-week, and when we did see her, she seemed very nice. A clean, affordable and relaxing place to stay in a fascinating part of the world.
