David and Nancy Young have a haven of heaven. The place is immaculate and well provisioned and the owners are gracious and most helpful. We so enjoyed it (my wife Corinne, me, brother Tom and his wife Kathy). Extremely convenient to Crystal Falls and the Channing area where we grew up. We took a field trip to Houghton early one morning for a surprise breakfast of pannukakku (Finnish baked custard pancakes with warm raspberry sauce) at the Suomi Restaurant in honor of Kathy’s Finnish heritage. Beautiful drive. This is the area where Travis and Angel hung out and did some of their detective work in the crime fiction novels Blood Ice and Lizard Eyes by Chick LaPointe (available on Amazon). This was a wonderful respite on a gorgeous lake. We laughed, enjoyed nature, got reacquainted with our native cuisine and saw much wildlife including deer, loons, turkeys, a hippopotamus (not really) and a grumpy old porcupine waddling on the road. We would return in a heartbeat to this off-the-grid rest from the news and the tired old world. Our batteries are charged and our minds are basking in serenity.

We stayed at the Holmes cabin for a week this June 2015. We put in a lot of time and energy to find the perfect place for our first "pre-retirement" experiment. The reviews are what sold us and we were not disappointed. This place had everything we were looking for. Peace and quiet, privacy and the opportunity to experience the UP atmosphere and hospitality. This place was just beautiful, very clean and the cabin was just the perfect size for the two of us. The generator worked flawlessly, when we needed it. So off the grid yes, roughing it, no way! We too were visited by the loons, whippoorwills and other beautiful songbirds. Other wildlife that showed themselves included a wolf swimming across the water and a doe that walked right into the yard off the lake. A couple mornings with light fog on the water, beautiful sunrises and amazing colorful postcard sunsets and breathtaking scenery both day and night. We were lucky to be present when the train sounded its whistle and crossed the trestle. The fishing was awesome. We caught bluegill, pike, perch and bass. Most every cast brought up a great catch. There’s nothing like a fresh fish fry to celebrate success on the water! The town is close with very friendly people. Crystal Falls being centrally located was the halfway mark for us to take day trips to The Porcupine Mountains, Lake in the Clouds, Iron River, Copper Harbor and the other many scenic drives. We definitely would love to come back to complete a Fall tour. Our Hosts made sure our stay was everything we were looking for and it was and more. Definitely a diamond in the not so rough!
