Want to get off the beaten path and enjoy the beauty and solitude of the Upper Peninsula? Located on quiet Baldy Lake in the midst of the Hiawatha National Forest, you will not be disappointed. Our cabin has all there is to offer in any season: fish, swim, kayak, off-road on ATVs and admire the grandeur of lake-living out your back door. You will drive on a dirt road and could see wildlife & insects of any sort at our cabin. If that is not appealing than we suggest you look at other options.

The space
Our cabin has recently been renovated from top to bottom. Recent upgrades in June 2020 include new sliding glass doors, deck, porch, dock, and additional seating on the deck. Our solar power runs all the appliances on the premises. Due to the limits of the solar system, we ask that guests start the generator before showering. The generator is new, filled with gas, and all you have to do is push the green start button! So easy. The solar system is easy to use - just switch on the light switches like at home. There ARE limits with a solar-powered system for certain items. Anything that has a heating element is unavailable for use. This includes crock pots, Instapots, curling irons, hair dryers, Keurig or other electric coffee pots . Those items are not allowed. Not to worry, though! Brew your coffee quickly with our percolator coffee pot on our modern propane range/oven or use the french press.The cabin is well-stocked with everything you need to make your stay as cozy as home. You won't even miss any of those appliances. Our Welcome Book at the cabin includes all instructions related to the solar. If you have further questions, please contact us. We would love to discuss this alternative energy that makes our off-the-grid cabin feel just like home!

While we brag about our rustic simplicity, you still have a modern bathroom with a hot shower after a long day of snowmobiling or rinsing off after sunbathing on the lake shore. We have a 9.6 cubic foot fridge with ample space for your family's foods and beverages. We also have a propane grill for cooking. A starter pack of paper products and soaps are provided for your convenience.

Our cabin has ample cooking space along with an island for hanging out with friends and a there is a huge table for meals and playing cards. Challenge your family to a foosball tournament on our vintage foosball table. There are plenty of lawn chairs available for sitting around our fire pit and listening to the lake sounds.

The sauna is fully functional and well-stocked with fresh cut cedar and birch.

We have a spiral staircase linking the upstairs sleeping and living area to our downstairs kitchen. We recommend comfy sneakers or slippers to wear around the kitchen area. Guests can also relax on the upper deck overlooking the lake. There are stairs directly from the deck to the lake as well as access around the cabin to throw in your fishing line or cool off on a hot day.

The cabin sleeps 6 and possibly up to 8. There is one bedroom with a queen size bed, a set of twin bunk beds in an alcove, and 2 pull out sofas with full size mattresses in the main living area. We have new pillows and memory foam mattresses on the pull-outs to make our guests extra comfortable. There is no TV to distract you from the beauty of your surroundings.

Location

Munising Township, Michigan, United States

Our cabin is part of Wetmore, MI in Alger County and surrounded by the Hiawatha National Forest. It is only 2 miles off Highway 13 and only 12 miles south of Wetmore, MI. Just west of Wetmore is the town of Munising, which offers tours or hiking at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, fishing excursions, and a variety of other great outdoor activities. Just a couple miles north on HWY 13 is the local grocery store which is well-stocked with items you might need. In the summer, the nearby trails have an abundance of raspberry and blueberry bushes and wildlife. Our location and driving time is about 2 hours west of the Mackinac Bridge, 60 minutes east of Marquette, and about 75 minutes northeast of Escanaba.

The cabin is located about down a dirt road 2 miles west off Highway 13. Highway 13 connects Munising in Alger Co. from the north to US 2 in the south in Delta County. Highway 13 is a paved road. The road to the cabin is a forest road, which is a mix of sand and gravel and does get somewhat muddy after rainstorms. There are numerous turn outs should you encounter another vehicle. The road is shared with mixed traffic -- ORVs in the spring, summer, and fall and snowmobiles in the winter. Most guests prefer driving down the road in trucks or SUVs. Mid-size cars can make it down the road most days, but there are times when there are large puddles and it gets muddy. Some guests have noted driving down that sort of road makes them uncomfortable. If that is the case for you, I recommend looking at some of the other local properties in our area.

Our family loves the outdoors and all Upper Michigan has to offer. We spend a lot of time snowmobiling, snowshoeing, riding ATVs, kayaking, camping, fishing, and hunting.
During your stay
Cell phone service in the area is sketchy. That's part of the beauty of the U.P. - unplug and unwind! The cabin has a landline that can call anywhere in the U.P. There is no wifi. Feel free to call us if you have any issues during your stay. We want you to have a great experience at our cabin.
