On the shores of Portage Lake, a private room to relax and enjoy Michigan's sunrises and full moons. Located in between Chassell and Houghton; only 4 miles from Michigan Tech University and Houghton's great amenities.

The space

Enjoy a wide open room with one queen size bed, a table for two, a view of Portage Lake and a steam sauna in the lower level of our home. This space is directly below our living area. We sleep in the upper level, so we will be two levels above where you are located from 10p.m to 6a.m. (usually). Also, please note, we share our patio and dock with you! Don't be alarmed if we use the dock to go for a swim to cool down!

Guest access

Please let us know a few hours ahead of time of when you will be arriving. We will meet you with a key. Enjoy your lower level guest room with a bathroom and a steam sauna. You will only have access to the lower level. You will access it from outside. Please lock the door behind you when you come and go.

Interaction with guests

If you need help with your accommodations please come to the front door, if the door is open we are there to help, if it's locked we are out. If you need immediate help please call us. We will be happy to help over the phone.

Other things to note

Mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot, closet, towels and Wi-Fi available for your use! We like to sauna-swim in the summertime! We steam up in the sauna and cool off in the lake! Feel free to use the picnic tables and relax on the chairs out on the patio, as well.

Jennie and Bruce were great hosts. Once we got settled we sat on the front porch overlooking Lake Portage. It was very peaceful.

Jennis's place is super. The private porch facing the lake is just amazing, we could watch the stars at night, and sunrise in the morning. And the sauna just made our trip even better, as we are actually not quite adjusted to the cold weather up north, the sauna just brought our energy back again. cannot imagine an outstanding place like this on airbnb, we would definitely visit again in the future. Just hope they could put some signs which would help to find their home easier though :p

Comfortable airy space with a beautiful, full view of the lake. Was able to watch amazing sunrises each morning. Sauna is fabulous. Easy access to the main road for sight seeing. Would stay again!

Absolutely wonderful place to stay in the U.P. Beautiful setting. My only wish was that we could have stayed longer! Although we were unable to meet the hosts (due to our late arrival) they accommodated and were very communicative. Will stay again in the future when traveling to the area.

Empty nesting with my husband of 36 years. Enjoy my 3 grown kids (& spouses) company and 2 precious grandsons. Love to travel, mountain bike, downhill ski, hike, run, camp, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Love a good little hole in the wall restaurant and a hidden trail to hike/bike/run on in a new area!

If you're not living life on the edge then you're taking up too much space.
