Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The House Next Door has a Northwoods feel while being in town and close to your likely destination. Just four blocks from downtown Ironwood, and in the heart of all the outdoor adventure the Gogebic Range has to offer. You'll love the warm cozy feel, and the ability to mingle in the open concept lr/dr/kitchen downstairs, or retreat upstairs for a quiet, peaceful setting. Individuals, couples, families, and up to nine friends would enjoy my place, provided you can live with one bathroom.

The space
I've recently purchased and renovated this 100 year old house. You'll find original and newer woodwork in every room, nature's color palette, a Northwoods nature decor, an eastern exposure and large windows for lots of morning light, a small cedar back deck and large shady front porch for summer use. The interior was renovated in 2018, the exterior was repainted in 2019 and the garage will be painted in 2020. Ironwood is undergoing a renaissance and The House Next Door is my contribution toward that movement!

Guest access
You have the whole house to yourself. You may access the unfinished basement to use the washer and dryer. The garage is not available for parking in summer, but can accommodate one car in winter. Two cars can fit on the parking pad in front of the garage. We may ask you to park in the garage if we are expecting overnight snow, to make early a.m. snow removal easier.

Other things to note
Good Wifi, Roku provided with tons of free channels and ability to stream your own subscriptions, e.g. Netflix, Amazon Prime.

Pricing Notes: I offer discounts for stays of 7+, 14+ and 28 or more days, a flexible cancellation policy, 10% off for nonrefundable bookings, and $15 additional person charges after 4 guests.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: I was already known for my sparkling clean place, but have made a couple of changes. I use environmentally-friendly cleaners with lower toxicity but with disinfectant properties ("kills 99.9% of germs), e.g. Method toilet cleaner, bathroom cleaner and kitchen cleaners. But will also use Lysol (kills 99.9% of germs more quickly!) if less than 48 hours between guests. I provide pump soap at kitchen and bathroom sinks and a hand sanitizer in the kitchen. I practice social distancing and wear a mask in public, e.g. at the grocery store, per recommendations of local health authorities , and encourage my guests to do the same (some of our local stores require masks). I will be happy to assist you with local business hours and other restrictions. Locally we have had no outbreaks and we want to keep it that way while also welcoming visitors. I believe we can safely enjoy all the area and the seasons have to offer.

Bedrooms #2 and #3 are semi-private. You pass through #2 to get to the stairway. There are doors at the bottom of the stairs and at the hallway so #2 can be private (depending on if anyone is using the upstairs bedrooms or not). Upstairs, bedroom #3 is a dorm style that you pass through to access #4. The two bedrooms with queen beds (#1 & #4) are private (have doors) & no one passing through.

There is one bathroom, with shower stall (no tub), towels, blow dryer, shampoo & lotion. Mirrors with nearby outlets in bedrooms #2, 3 & 4 to expedite bathroom time!

The kitchen is fully functional with all the basic cooking equipment, coffee maker, coffee press, pizza stone, toaster, blender, Folkscraft stoneware, silverware & glassware, including wine glasses, for nine. There is also a 3-stage under-sink water filter for clean, fresh drinking water at the kitchen sink.

Children & babies are welcome. I have a Pack-n-Play and a removable bed rail for the bottom bunk toddler safety. I have one safety gate that can be put in a doorway. Please note there is no bath tub (shower only).

No central air conditioning; it is generally not needed. Our average summer daytime temps are in the 70s with night time lows in the 50s. Opening windows at night and use of ceiling fans and floor fans (provided) tends to keep the house comfortable, and the shady front porch and back deck offer breezy outdoor spaces. However, I do have a window AC unit that is available for the master bedroom (br #1, on the first floor, with the queen bed). Please let me know if that is a priority for you and I will install it for your stay.

Location

Ironwood, Michigan, United States

This is a safe and quiet residential neighborhood of mostly single-family homes. You can walk (or drive) 3-5 blocks to restaurants/bars, coffee shops, the local brew pub, our food co-op, the historic Ironwood Theatre, gift shops and clothing stores, several churches, a day spa, and the Depot Park where our Chamber of Commerce, history museum and a small playground are located . There may be some car noise from Business US-2, especially in summer with the windows open.

We're perfectly situated for the active outdoor lifestyle! The Iron Belle Trail can be accessed at the end of our block to run, bike, roller ski, or walk on the paved trail that spans 6 miles between Hurley and Bessemer. I can help you with longer running routes and nice 25-50 mile bike routes from the house on low-traffic roads. Snowmobile Trail #2 can be accessed at the Depot Park four blocks away. Mt Zion scenic overlook makes a nice two-mile walk (or drive) from the house. We also have a yoga studio and fitness center within one block. Both allow drop ins.

Within a six mile radius you will find cross country skiing and snowshoeing at ABR, Wolverine and Miners Memorial Park; downhill skiing at Big Powderhorn, Indianhead and Blackjack; short hikes at Miners Memorial Park, Interstate Falls and others; mt/fat biking at several local trails; kayaking on Gile Flowage; snowmobiling on Trial #2 and #17 in Wisconsin.

Within 20 miles: Hike and view waterfalls along the Black River and continue on to Black River Harbor for a sandy beach. Take the chair lift to the top of Copper Peak ski flying hill for a 360 degree view of the Northwoods. Visit Lake Superior at Little Girls Point and Saxon Falls, for a rocky beach, kayaking boat launches, or stops on a long bike ride or scenic drive. Ride your mountain bike at WinMan Trails.

Popular day trips include Porcupine Mts Wilderness State Park for hiking and Fall color; Bayfield, WI for fruit orchards, boating, the famous Apostle Island National Lakeshore sea caves, dining, shopping and casino; Minocqua, WI for shopping, dining, and xc skiing.

I provide travel brochures and am glad to help you plan your visit based on your interests!

During your stay
Since I live next door, you can likely meet me face-to-face for any questions, issues, or ideas about where to go, what to do. I work at ABR Ski Trails, in the retail shop and teaching Nordic ski lessons, and will reply to text messages as soon as I possibly can. I also serve as the race director for the SISU Ski Fest.
