“Great time at a great cabin in the UP!”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2017

We stayed with a group of five for snowmobile trip in the UP. The cabin was exactly as described on the web site. A beautiful place, that is well furnished and perfect for outdoor fun in the UP. We will be back in the future.

“Great experience!”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

Cabin was beautiful as well as the lake and rest of the property. Very relaxing! Just wish the fishing had been a little better.

This home is located in an ideal spot for solitude (at least at this time of year). The weather didn't work that well for us, however; the home was so comfy and spacious, it was a pleasure to stay indoors and just read, watch movies, play games and just relax. My husband did go hunting every morning, so he was able to enjoy one of the sports he wanted to do while there. All in all, we'd definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to others to try.

“a great get away!”

This cabin was great! Clean and spacious. It was perfect for our large family of 15. ( 8 kids) swimming, fishing and boating fun. If you love being secluded and at peace, this is the place to stay!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review Lisa, and for staying. We love to have families come and enjoy the peaceful setting and feel like you can really get away from it all. We are really glad that your family was able to enjoy a nice week together. Hope you can come back again sometime. Krista & Dirk

“Great Place To Enjoy The UP”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2012

My wife, son and I recently took our first trip to the Upper Peninusla. We had several properties to chose from but this one appealed to us due to the lake setting, large yard, and the king-sized beds (my son and I are both 6'4"). Due to a project I was completing at work, Internet access was a requirement. I emailed the owner who said they didn't have Internet at the property but were considering it. She later emailed and said it would be installed before we arrived. We booked! People often ask us what was the best part of the trips we take. I would have to say that on this trip the best part was the cabin. The location is fantastic. At least in May there is little activity on the lake so it was very quiet. The views are just great and osprey and bald eagles nest right out back. While there we saw 51 different species of birds, heard coyotes howling in the evenings, saw deer nearly every time we drove out, and watched numerous beautiful sunsets. If you like stargazing you'll really enjoy sitting around the firepit on a clear night. The cabin is well furnished, comfortable, and feels like home from the first minute you arrive. We hated to leave and couldn't believe how fast the week flew by. Want to enjoy the UP? Stay here.

very beautiful secluded cabin in the U.P. was a great way to relax. Excellent communication during the booking process and the cabin was even better than the pictures on the website. Highly recommended.

We had a very relaxing and memorable stay..We recommend to all that want a pleasurable experience.......

“Laid-Back Family Retreat”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2011

First time in the Upper Peninsula. This cabin was a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of life and work. The secluded setting was a welcome retreat. Our family enjoyed the house, the yard, the lake and the boats. There was no reason to leave the property...everything was right there. Fishing was great. Sunsets were breathtaking. Cabin was clean, organized and had everything we needed. Our kids are still talking about the fun they had at the cabin. We will be back for sure! Owners were easy to work with and the price is fair. A price tag can't be put on family time together at a beautiful vacation spot.

“Wonderful Vacation”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2009

What a great vacation spot to get away from it all. We spent the week fishing (daughter caught 17 fish on Thursday - from the dock), paddling around the lake, biking, swimming, and sitting by the fire. Everything was terrific. Great for the kids. Plenty of wildlife and nature to interact with. Iron Mountain and Norway are nearby for supplies, and there are maps to local waterfalls and trails. The yard is huge, so we set up all the games we had at once. The house is well-appointed, very very clean, and very comfortable. The cell service is very weak and spotty, but that can be good thing, too. No Internet service, but there is satellite TV, DVD, and VHS, as well as a pool table and electronic dart board. We couldn't have been more pleased, and the owners are very nice to work with.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

When we arrived at VonSeda's, the first thing we noticed was the amazing view- quite breathtaking. The cabin is set in a spot that allows you to get a wonderful view of the water from just about anywhere. This place is great- a hidden secret for sure. If you have the chance to get away you would certainly feel the same way as we did. We had never even heard of Hardwood before- but now that we know it, we'll never forget it.
The cabin is super clean, and has just about everything you can think of to make your stay comfy. The hummingbirds greeted us each day we were there. We also loved watching the numerous loons and osprey in the water catching fish! Kayaking is unbelievable here. We spent hours out on the water exploring and maneuvering between the islands. The kids loved fishing- even catching many right off of the dock. The water is nice and clear, sandy beach up close which is really nice for the kids. I can't say enough good things about VonSeda's. We will certainly be back- already planning dates for next summer. Thank you for letting us enjoy your little slice of heaven!

VonSeda's Hardwood Hideaway is very peaceful and the cabin has everything you'd want if looking for a family vacation at a luxury location. The back yard facing the water has an awesome deck for enjoying early morning coffee and listening to the loons. We were visited each morning by several Canada Geese families feeding on the lawn near the water. You can watch the kids enjoying the water and fishing right from the top deck. We stayed three nights with our two son's and their families. The beds are very comfortable and the cabin is top notch. Our four grandchildren loved sleeping in the loft. They spent three days in the water and catching many many fish (which they released). The cabin is so large that you never feel crowded and it has many special touches that make you feel right at home. We made several trips with the canoe, paddle boat, and the row boat. Once you get to the lodge, you want to stay and enjoy the scenery spread out in front of you. Don't hesitate about this rental, it is worth every penny. The hosts are great and were very accommodating. We rent once or twice each year all over the country and have never been disappointed. The McKinney's, Wisconsin.
