We stayed with a group of ten woman. This house was very accommodating, and the hosts were most helpful to work with. Being right on the beach we were able to see the sunrise and the full moon rising. It was spectacular. The home had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. That's saying a lot when you have ten women to keep happy. Five stars for sure.
We had a wonderful vacation! The home is right on the beach, very private with its own firepit. We had several fires in the firepit which is just a few feet from the water. It was a beautiful setting for watching the sunset, incredible starry nights, with the moon rising directly from Lake Superior. Modern log home well maintained, with all the amenities. Great Location, in Christmas MI. The Pictured Rock Tour boats, Pictured Rock Hiking Trails and several Waterfalls are minutes away in Munising MI. We enjoyed all of these natural wonders. Lisa (host) was very attentive making sure we were well taken care of.
This location is the most relaxing vacation we've ever had. We spent the entire week just enjoying the peace and quiet of the house and beach. Make sure to set your alarm early to catch the sunrise. The place isn't named Sunrise Beach for nothing. The sunrises were spectacular! Step out the back door from the screened in porch and you are on the beach. The water is clear and cold so swimming is a chilly experience but the beach is wonderful. Just a couple of things to remember: 1) the house is on a well with a high iron content so bring your own drinking water. 2) It can be a little "buggy" so bring your bug spray.
We had to skip a couple of years due to Covid so it was great to be back to our favorite place in the UP with our daughter, SIL, and two grandkids. Just as beautiful and peaceful as we remembered. The grandkids spent every hour possible on the beach and hated to leave. I cannot recommend it more highly!
A total of 6 of us and a dog stayed here for a family trip in late summer and it was everything we needed and gorgeous. The view was the best part with the crystal-clear water, tons of colorful rocks, sandy beach, and sunrises. The house is a real log cabin with two large master-sized bedrooms, one small bedroom with bunk beds, plenty of kitchen/living room space, a screened in porch, and a fire pit with friendly neighbors that would stroll by on the beach from time to time. Buying the wood ahead of time through Lisa and the location was really convenient and we definitely want to come back one day!
We had a wonderful time at this property. Spacious and well equipped. Sunrises were awesome. We would consider staying here again. Our only wish would be that possibly some kind of water treatment would be intstalled. We were made aware that you would have to bring your own drinking water which was ok. This would not keep us from renting again as we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this for a great family vacation!
We spent 3 nights at the cottage and wish we could have stayed longer. The view was spectacular and the cottage was very comfortable. Our only negative comment is the water situation and the dishwasher should be replaced. We were aware of the water situation so we brought bottled water with us. I was very impressed with all of the information provided by Lisa at Hiawatha Hideaway.
Cozy but roomy accommodations with a great view. Would definitely consider rebooking in the future.
My husband and I stayed for our Wedding Anniversary. It was such a cozy place and we can’t wait to come back. Thank you for all the extra check ins and making sure our accommodations were great.
Sunrise Beach, a great family vacation house. This year, our daughter wanted to have a real family vacation. She found this home for all us, and she picked a winner! My wife and I stayed here with our daughter, son-in-law, and our 4-year-old grandson. Our son-in-law’s parents stayed nearby in a different rental house. They visited every day while they were here. The house was perfect for all of us. Plenty of room, clean, great views, a beach literally out the back door, and a huge lake. My wife loved going to sleep at night listening to the waves breaking on the beach. Our grandson loved playing in the sand and water. His parents both enjoyed paddle boarding on the lake. They were amazed at how clear the water is and how far down into the lake they could see. In the evenings, we grilled out, roasted marshmallows, and later, after our grandson fell asleep, his parents sat by the fire in the fire pit and relaxed. Our grandson found a big moth, saw a snapping turtle, and went on a toad hunt with his dad. Overall, we had a great vacation. We have lots of pictures and lots of memories. Thanks!
The rental was very clean. Kitchen well equipped. The view is priceless, as was the starlit night sky, and waking up to gradual, natural sunlight. Very quiet and peaceful. Sandy shoreline provided beautiful walks.
This was a beautiful log cabin with a beautiful view of the water from both bedrooms and living room. It was so relaxing listing to the water. The managers were very nice and made sure everything went perfect! Can't wait for our next vacation! We will be returning agaim!
