Area Information

The river is great for canoeing, fishing, kayaking and other water sports and has great access to beautiful Lake Superior and sand beaches. Home is under a mile from the Mangum Rd. entrance to the North Country Hiking Trail, also near biking, skiing, snowmobiling (we're located right on DNR designated trail 417) & snowshoeing trails, casino, hunting and many other outdoor activities. The spectacular Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Munising is also a reasonably short drive from the cottage, as well as two casinos, one under 7 miles away and the other just over 20. Chocolay Downs Golf Course is located 8.5 miles away. The location is 17 miles east of the city of Marquette, which was recently designated as one of America's Most Livable Communities. In October 2010, Forbes announced their "Ten Best Small Cities to Raise a Family," and Marquette was designated #3 in the nation. Marquette was designated a "Bicycle Friendly Community" by the League of American Bicyclists in April 2010. The area is serviced by Sawyer International Airport (MQT) with non-stop service to several major US hubs. For more info go to: mqtctyorg

Had a great time

We shared the house with another couple and had a great time. It was clean, well stocked and really convenient for Marquette. LOVED the basement bar and Pool table. The views out to Lake Superior were a treat.
