GITCHE GUMEE CHALET
SLEEPS: 6
BEDROOMS: 2
BATHROOMS: 1
*LAKEFRONT (VIEW of Lake Superior)
* TAHQUAMENON FALLS STATE PARK—20 min away!
*ORVs ARE WELCOME
*Because this home sits on a bluff, you are unable to actually touch the water from the property.

***Guests should not attempt to reach Lake Superior from the property. The historically high water levels have destabilized the shoreline, and it is very dangerous to go beyond the fence. Simply put...Stay away and stay safe!

*Swimming, boating, and fishing can be acted out 3 miles south, at the mouth of the Tahquamenon river where it enters into Whitefish Bay.

Adults, come and enjoy a quiet home with a great view of Gitche Gumee (as Longfellow refers to it…”the Big Sea”.) Gitche Gumee means "Lake Superior"! From the uncovered deck, gaze over the distant water just in time to see the sunrise. This home sits on a 30 ft. bluff, so for safety reasons, children are discouraged from staying. Safely, adults are able to gander at the raw, primitive, Lake Superior shore while lighting a bonfire among friends.
This 2-bedroom home, with a master bedroom on the main floor and 3 other beds in the loft area, is a quaint getaway. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, 1 full bathroom, and a dining table that seats 6. The living room and loft area have smart TV's, and also have Jamadots sticks that give you access to local channels-NBC, ABC, COMET, CBS, PBS & FOX.

For those who absolutely love the snow, this lake house is a great fit! You are on Michigan's snow-belt and are within reach of many trails fit for snowmobiling. We always encourage you to do your research on trails before you get this home, that way, you can jump right on the trails from the front door and take off!

***PLEASE REMEMBER***Because this home sits on a bluff, you are unable to actually touch the water from the property. Swimming, boating, and fishing can be acted out 3 miles south, at the mouth of the Tahquamenon river where it enters into Whitefish Bay.

Dock: There is no dock at this property

Drinking Water: The Chalet has a main line water filter and also a faucet mounted filter. However, if you are new to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, you may want to consider bottled water as the UP's water is very different than city water.

Drugs: There is no smoking, vaping, or drugs of any kind allowed on the property. The manufacture, use, or distribution of illegal drugs from this property is strictly forbidden. This property is regularly patrolled by law enforcement and any suspected activity will be immediately reported. If reported, your stay and your privilege of future reservations will be terminated.

DVD Player: There is a DVD player available, however due to individual preferences we suggest you bring movies that you enjoy. A limited selection is provided for your use.

Electricity: Due to the location of the cottage, power outages are not uncommon. When the wind blows heavily, sometimes the power will go out. The electrical lines are on poles and not underground like in the metropolitan areas. There are flash lights provided if the power should go out during your stay. There is a gas fireplace in the chalet, so you won't lose heat if you lose power.

Fireplace: Yes! The fireplace is the main heat source. It is a gas stove/fireplace controlled by a thermostat.

Fire-pit: Yes! The fire pit is located lakeside, about 10-20 feet back from the bluff. Please check the daily burn permit status at https://www2.dnr.state.mi.us/burnpermits/. If you start a fire during a 'no-burn advisory', the person could be responsible for all costs related to the fire's damage.

Fishing: PLEASE--Do not attempt fishing from the property. It is too rough. There is a boat access by the mouth of the river where some people fish. In Michigan, one must obtain a fishing license to fish in any lake.

Grill: Propane grill. Propane is provided.

Grocery Store: 5 minutes from the cottage is a mini-mart, which is similar to a mini-grocery store. Paradise Foods: 8271 M-123, Paradise, MI 49768 - (906) 492-3538

Internet: Yes, there is internet!

Lakefront: If you walk out of the slider door (closed during winter months), there is a deck with 3 steps, then, if you walk out about 40-50 feet, there is a fence. PLEASE DO NOT GO PAST THE FENCE! On the other side of the fence, there is only about 3 feet and then approximately a 30 ft drop to the lake. It is not a gradual slope to the lake--it is a very dangerous, steep drop off. This cottage sits on a bluff. so we do not consider it safe for children.

Linens: Yes, we provide your basic bedding, sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you before you arrive. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let us know, and we'll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Parking: There is enough room for about 2 trucks/small trailers to park in the circle drive. The house is on a very small dirt road, so be careful pulling in.

Pets: We are sorry, no pets are allowed at this property. Enjoy this allergen-free home!

Privacy: There is a home to the south of the chalet, and a cottage to the west. Trees separate the property. There is about 50 ft. that separate the houses.

Seniors: On the main floor, there is a bedroom and a bathroom. Outside, there are 3 steps to gain entry to the home.

Snowmobiles: YES! This is a great area for snowmobiling! A person (resident or non-resident) that operates a snowmobile in Michigan, is required to purchase a snowmobile trail permit. The trail permit enables snowmobilers to ride state-designated trails, thousands more miles of public roads, and on public lands (where authorized). The permit is valid for one year, which begins Oct.1st and ends Sept.30th of the following year. State-designated trails are open Dec.1st through March 31st, and grooming occurs when there is enough snow on the ground.

Space: 2-level home

Televisions: There is one TV in the living room and one in the loft area. Both are smart TV's, so guests are able to live stream using their Netfix or other streaming accounts. There is no cable, but the owner has also added a Jamadots stick that gives you access to local channels-NBC, ABC ,COMET, CBS, PBS, and FOX. There are instructions at the property to change the input for access.

Towels: Yes, we provide bath towels. It's always good to bring extra though.

Washer and dryer: Yes! There is a washer & dryer in the master bedroom

Wood: Not guaranteed. If there is wood, it will be in the middle of circle drive by the group of trees. We recommend you pick up some on your way just in case. There is firewood available for sale at the local gas station which is within 5 minutes of the Chalet.
