About Doreen Pavlik

We purchased this property in 2003 as an interim destination until, and while, we built our waterfront dream cabin in 2013 nearby. We loved every minute of our stay in this little rustic cabin. We purchased waterfront in 1994 with the dream of building on it, but until that was possible, we enjoyed this little cabin. We have developed a love for the beauty and rustic feel of the UP. This little cabin has the feel of waterfront, the smell of waterfront, the sound of waterfront, and a partial view like waterfront....but just a short walk across the street to the public access. It's our joy to offer a stay for your relaxation and break from the media saturated world around you and retreat to a slower pace, with campfires, beach walks, hiking, swimming and many fun filled day trips.

Why Doreen Pavlik chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

This property is a break from the fast pace media saturated world. No in house internet access, but locally available, no cable TV, limited local stations with a VHS video player, totally "old school" complete with a selection of movies. It's our hope that our guests will be so busy enjoying the outdoor beauty, day trips and playing games with family that media won't be necessary except for a nice cup of coffee at the Dancing Crane Coffee Shop to "check up" on your Facebook or emails with their free WiFi access just 3 miles down Lakeshore Dr. The smell of real firewood burning in the woodstove touches off the rustic ambiance of those cool UP evenings or a campfire with marshmellows roasting or hot dogs lightly charred!

What makes this cabin unique

Watching freighters passing on their way through to the Soo Locks and on to the St.Lawrence Seaway. Breathtaking sunsets and beautiful "public" beach that only the locals know about right across the street, long walks on the beach and the beautiful vintage Point Iroquois Lighthouse just a short walk down the beach is a destination in itself.

Rustic Cabin on Lake Superior

  • 5 of 5

What a charming cabin! Brought our 2 grandchildren (10 and 5) and son to the UP for a week at the end of June. Cabin had everything we needed except good cell phone coverage, however that was not a problem for us since we were there to relax and enjoy the outdoors. With good service right down the road, it was not a problem. Great location to see the sights and to visit the Soo. Definitely would return and would recommend to anyone looking for a real "cabin" feel. Thanks Doreen!

Beautiful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We could view Lake Superior from the cottage, and there is easy access to the beach quite near the cabin. Many tourist attractions are an easy few miles away. The owner of the cottage had it stocked so we wanted for nothing. The interior is all knotty pine, which added to the ambiance. We would definitely recommend this over an impersonal hotel.

Great fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Lake Superior. Taquamenon Falls were beautiful, as was our public/private beach across the street. Enjoyed Sault Ste Marie and St. Ignace. Our cabin was cozy and the perfect size for us. Doreen, our owner, even left us some tasty monkey bread! Great trip.

Cozy up north retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the cozy retreat of the cottage nightly. We walked along the shoreline across the street from the cottage and enjoyed breath taking views of the morning sun and water. We did not have a fire in the fire pit. We had all the comforts of home at the cottage.

A Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This Charming Rustic Cabin with a Lake Superior Lake View was just what the doctor ordered! My girlfriend and I wanted to get away for Labor Day weekend, we were looking for something where we could relax and get away from everyday life. This was the perfect spot for us! The cabin was very clean and had a vintage style to it! The Cabin offered everything that we needed for everyday use. All that we did was pack our personal belongings and enjoy the ride up from the metro Detroit area. It was about 40 minutes away from Tahquamenon Falls (which was beautiful) and it was about one hour and forty minutes from Pictured Rocks (which was absolutely gorgeous). We are already talking about coming back next year for another getaway! This is not only the perfect spot for vacation or a weekend getaway, but also the perfect spot to fall in love with someone! I am absolutely 100% in love with the woman of my dreams and I realized it even more on our trip together! We will never ever forget our time at the Charming Rustic Cabin with a Lake Superior Lake View!!

great cabin for a rustic UP experience

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was perfect for us, it was nice to be able to unplug for the week and the location was great - not too far from Saulte Ste Marie, Tahquamenon Falls, Pictured Rocks etc. and the owners were lovely, they keep the place clean and well stocked with everything you need. Loses 1 star because of 2 things - when we first arrived we needed to clean out the shower head and kitchen sink filter to improve the water pressure, and we did remove 3 shrews from the house(this really didn't bother us but if you aren't handy or your kids are scaredy cats this might not work for you) honestly if you're looking for a luxurious stay at the Ritz then don't go to the UP... but if you want to enjoy the great outdoors this is the perfect home base to crash after a long day of activities!

Owner's Response: Welcome to the UP! Great to know our ongoing treatment for "God's little nuisance creatures" is working! When you live on the edge of a wooded forest and close to the lake, the little creatures like it too, but we don't want to share our space with them, so control treatment is always ongoing. I guess is goes along with the rustic nature, and it's not for everyone. Thank you for your honest review, it helps people choose what is right for their family vacation.
