A true piece of majestic grandeur on Lake Superior in the Porcupine Mountains. A stunning home nestled in coastal boreal forest with full access to our private nature sanctuary and beach at the mouth of the Mineral River on Lake Superior! Located a stones throw from the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park and immediately adjacent to the most beautiful beach in the state park. Don't miss a stay at the most stunning accommodation in the region. Guided nature hikes available.

The space
Guests will have full access to the entire house where every room has a view of Lake Superior through the forest! This nature-themed ecolodge has everything needed for a great vacation in the U.P. with a spectacular beach and access to the Mineral River, private nature trails and boardwalks. A great place for kids and adults with 5 separate rooms with guest accommodation, plus common areas, 3 porches and a weber grill available for use. A 1/3 mile nature trail/boardwalk system has just been completed, allowing for access to wetland swales and enchanting forest.
The kitchen has a large island with 4 bar stools, an electric stove, a large microwave, a dishwasher and full size fridge. The cupboards are fully stocked with dishes, dish towels, pots, pans, utensils and silverware - pretty much everything you would need for meal prep/cooking, including a coffee pot, vitamix and kitchen aid. Ecofriendly dish soap will be provided. Upstairs bunk bed with some toys for kids and a crib make it great for families. Two spacious living areas downstairs are ideal for social events and family gatherings. Bonus: a shipwreck sits just offshore within easy reach of experienced kayakers and paddleboarders.

This is very private! No houses/neighbors can be seen from the residence or anywhere on the property. The house is a short walk (100 ft) from your own slice of sandy beach in a coastal boreal forest which is contiguous with the most beautiful beach in the Porcupine Mountains with natural sand dunes. Only minutes from Lake of the Clouds and countless wonderful hikes and waterfalls in the state park, the Ottawa national Forest and beyond! There are plenty of restaurants and a few stores about mile away in Silver City, yet when you are here is certainly feels like the wilderness with the continuous roar of Gitche Gumme.
