UV-C+ cleaned, TINY HOME living in a completely renovated school bus! Located across the street from a nearly private, sand beach of Lake Superior. Comfortably sleeps two adults and a child, and is perfect for anyone, from the mellow to the adventurous.

The space
Tiny home living in completely renovated school bus! The bus is located 8 miles east of Marquette and 25 miles west of Munising. In a beautiful redpine and sand dune topography, the land the bus is situated on overlooks a pond and is across the street from a public sand beach of Lake Superior. It comfortably sleeps two adults and a child, and is perfect for anyone, from the mellow to the adventurous, all four seasons. Come for all that Marquette and Munising have to offer: Pictured Rocks, waterfalls, hiking, kayaking, skiing, mountain/snow biking, fall colors, & Northern Lights.

The bus is equipped with air-conditioning as well as two heaters, for year-round enjoyment. There is a pull-out queen-sized bed and a single. While there is no running water, there is a full kitchen (small fridge/cooktop, griddle & coffee maker) with a sink to a simple grey-water plumbing system. We provide you with 15 gallons of fresh, artesian spring water in easy to use containers, and we can always bring you more water, if you need it.

The bus is located next to a seasonal campground, so you can also use the restrooms/showers there, too, if they are open, for no additional fees. If you want the full "tiny home" effect, though, the bus has a bathroom with a bucket toilet (similar to a Loveable Loo) and a small tub with an on-demand water heater with a shower adapter and drain.

I will send a document of full directions about all the School Bus Living tips and tricks once you've booked, so that you can have all the details ahead of time and so that your stay is even more enjoyable!

Guest access
You have the entire bus to yourself.

Other things to note
The bus height on the interior is just over 6 feet, so anyone taller than that will be slightly bent when standing up!

Location

Marquette, Michigan, United States

The bus is located on the periphery of a campground thick with tall red pine, on the edge of a bird sanctuary pond. The campground might be full, empty, or in-between, depending on the time of year you are staying with us. Also seasonal, wild blueberries and huckleberries abound all over the property. A public beach on Lake Superior is directly across the street, where you can have small fires and take in the solitude and beauty. The North Country Trail runs alongside of the property, and there are bike/ATV/snowmobile trails that lead directly into Marquette and beyond.
