Bay Shore Rental Log Cabin on Portage Lake is a two bedroom genuine log cabin located only 9 miles west of Houghton, MI in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Relax in this beautifully preserved and updated log cabin with a nice grassy yard leading down to the shoreline where you will find a sand bottomed swimming beach and a dock on Portage Lake. This quiet and secluded log cabin is nestled among whispering pines and spruce trees, with a beautiful view of the waterway and the hills of the Keweenaw in the distance.
Bay Shore Log Cabin has a great room with a complete kitchen, snack bar, dining area with table, and a comfortably furnished living area with a TV and a DVD player. Relax around the wood-burning field stone fireplace after a busy day.
The cabin has two bedrooms with a double bed in one bedroom, two single beds in the other bedroom, and a sofa sleeper in the living room. There is also a set of bunk beds in the sauna house and a rollaway bed is available for extra guests. The log cabin has one bathroom with a shower. Bed linens and an initial supply of paper products are provided for guests but please bring your own towels and washcloths.
There is an enclosed screened-in porch and an open wrap around deck with a gas grill for your outdoor cooking . . . a wonderful place to sit and relax while you enjoy the outstanding view or read your favorite book or magazine.
Bay Shore Log Cabin has 270 feet of waterfront with a sandy beach swimming area. Relax by the water or sit on the dock and watch the birds and boats as they pass by the cabin. Bring your own boat, or you can rent a boat, canoe, or kayak in Houghton for some fun in the water. . . Enjoy fishing or just riding along the shoreline. Lake Superior is only 5 minutes north of the cabin by boat on the Portage Canal.
Houghton & Hancock are only a few minutes away where you will find restaurants and shopping along with Michigan Tech University, the Rozsa Center for special events, and Finlandia University.
Make Bay Shore Log Cabin your headquarters while you enjoy the beauty and history of the Keweenaw. You might enjoy a trip north towards Copper Harbor where you can visit lighthouses, museums, and quaint shops. The Quincy Copper Mine is on top of the hill in Hancock and is open for tours.
Fall color is outstanding in the Keweenaw. A day trip on Highway M-26 west towards the Porcupine Mountains makes a great color tour. Lake of the Clouds in the Porkies is always beautiful and you can get some great pictures along the Lake Superior shoreline. Another day trip will take you up to Copper Harbor on US-41 through the archway of trees south of Copper Harbor and return over Brockway Mountain, one of Michigan's outstanding drives.
Pets Welcome with prior approval.
