We were able to communicate with the owners prior to our arrival. The home was extremely clean and every detail was well thought out by the owners. They took the time to show us how everything worked, provided breakfast food and coffee along with local chocolates. I would highly recommend staying here, I know we already want to go back.
This place is a must stay over any hotel. Sauna shower is the best.. Thanks again Julie and Bob
Beautiful rental with amazing g views. Beach was more than one could hope for with the sunset. Hosts were very nice and pleasant people can’t wait to come again. Thanks so much. Dan & Ali..
The pictures do not do this place justice. It’s amazing! You walk right out onto the beach and have a view I couldn’t imagine. The owners are so kind, friendly, and accommodating. They even left us gifts. We are 100% planning on returning. I cannot remember the last time I had a more peaceful and tranquil trip. Best VRBO place I have ever stayed.
Great communication with owners. Everything you need is here!
My husband and I wanted an early anniversary fall getaway and Cherry Pointe was an excellent choice. Bob and Julie have thought of everything you need, were very friendly, and have a beautiful home. The view of Lake Superior was breathtaking, the apartment was private and cozy, and we loved the sauna on the chilly fall days. We would definitely come back! It was above and beyond what we expected and made our trip relaxing and romantic.
It was the perfect location for our fall getaway. The Cherry Pointe Cottage on the shores of the Superior was so cozy and comfortable. The owners had left many special touches...delicious wine, yummy chocolates and needed breakfast items. Perfect vacation!!!
This place was just what the doctor ordered. We loved our stay at this Au Train gem. Our hosts were some of the most amazing and inspiring people we’d ever met. The space was so much larger than we thought it would be. Everything is great: The kitchen is stocked and has a great breakfast bar. The main living space has a huge flat screen and a fun entertaining space. The heater work great. Loved the bedroom and all the high end bedding and sheets. The sauna was definitely a highlight! We loved dipping into the cold water and going in the sauna after. The proximity to the lake is truly perfect. Can’t wait to book again!!!
This place has - everything. A spectacular view, easy access to the beach & fire pit, sauna, comfortable surroundings and a bed so comfortable it’s not easy to get up in the morning. Julie & Bob were excellent hosts and I’m sure it’s already been mentioned, but Julie irons the bed linens which creates a crisp and luxurious experience. We’ll be back again someday. 5 stars aren’t enough for this place.
The apt. was amazing. It has everything you need and it’s fully stocked. The hosts were there if we needed but also gave us complete privacy. LOVE THE VIEW and the sauna as that is not a normal offering in a rental. Would totally recommend.
Julie and Bob are so wonderful! Wine, chocolates, breakfast food (the waffle mix was so yummy!) The apartment is fantastic! We didn't take advantage of the sauna, but everything else was so nice. Especially the location! We took the kayaks out one day (Julie worried about us the whole time, but took some great pictures of us on the water) and Seamus (their wonderful dog) came and had coffee with us on the deck almost every morning. Nice to have puppy cuddles when I was missing my dogs! They think of everything, and make your stay the most comfortable you could possibly be! Great people, I feel like I made friends for life, and we will definitely come here to stay again! You will fall in love with everything about this place, especially Julie, Bob and Seamus! We couldn't have picked a better place! Priceless!
Property was very well kept and hosts were kind, helpful, and respectful. It was important to us to feel safe during Covid and our hosts were perfect. They made sure we had everything we needed and the wine and chocolates were an extra special touch. Thanks for a great experience!
What a great stay we had on Lake Superior! Our long weekend was exactly what we needed – Julie and Bob were extremely welcoming and made sure our stay was perfect. Their place is clean, cozy, and charming. It was close enough to town that it was easy to get to restaurants, stores, and our kayaking experience but far enough away to give us the time in nature we were looking for. We especially enjoyed grilling outside by the lake and spending time in the sauna after chilly days. They have really thought of everything – from a full kitchen to board games, we had everything we needed for our stay. We would recommend this VRBO to anyone.
We could not have asked for a better property, location, or experience at Bob and Julie’s place! Our favorite part of the experience was enjoying the private beach on our beautiful Lake Superior! We enjoyed every sunrise, sunset, and moonrise on the private lakefront property. Bob and Julie provided all the little extras that make a getaway extra special like a waffle maker and waffle mix, milk and eggs, orange juice and English muffins, chocolates, wine and more! Even a sauna which we used every night, and a big screen TV if you want to relax inside and watch HGTV. The location was perfectly situated close to Munising with all the beautiful parks for hiking, beach combing and exploring. Marquette was just 30 minutes for some shopping and more fine dining. We’re hoping to get back next year and maybe make it an annual trip. Thanks Bob and Julie for having all the little extra touches. It’s worth it to spend the extra money for accommodations!
My only regret about this trip is that we didn’t stay longer! Hats off to Julie and Bob for creating a wonderful rental experience. I had high expectations going into the trip from reading prior reviews and I can honestly say my expectations were greatly exceeded! My wife and I are sad to leave but we know we’ll definitely be booking again in the near future! Thank you Julie & Bob!
We had a wonderful time at Cherry Point Cottage. Julie and Bob thought of everything! They are down to earth, interesting, have great energy, are fun to be around, and committed to making you feel as though their home is yours. The attention to detail was obvious and appreciated. We had one concern at the beginning of our stay and it was addressed immediately and beyond satisfactorily. We recommend staying here to anyone looking for a comfortable, luxury home away from home on Lake Superior. This is not your typical U.P. cabin/cottage stay and we can't wait to make another trip north! Thanks so much Julie and Bob!
I can't fully put into words how incredible our stay was with Julie and Bob. We spent four nights in their beautiful, well-maintained and supremely cozy basement apartment. We loved the proximity to Lake Superior, and took the kayaks out on the lake, enjoyed the sauna, sat on the lounge chairs overlooking the water, played pool, relaxed on the sofas and slept well every night in the very comfortable bed. It's an easy drive into Munising and to many hiking and scenic attractions. We spent the majority of our days outside taking in the natural beauty and loved returning each evening to a home away from home. Julie and Bob thought of everything; we really appreciated the delicious wine and chocolates, coffee and breakfast staples, and giant cupboard of games! We also really enjoyed chatting with and getting to know Julie and Bob. Their dog Seamus is super sweet. We've been talking about coming back since our first day here. Thank you for the most excellent and restful stay. We can't wait to come back!
It was quiet and very peaceful. All the comforts of being at home while on vacation. Bob and Julie have a beautiful home that they have opened up to share there one bed room contravene with others and it’s a true treasure. The view of the lake is amazing , the beach was wonderful. Easy access to town , they have made every effort to make sure there guests are truly comfortable while staying there. It was a great experience and we will come back again!!
We loved our stay at the cabin. The accessibility to the lake was amazing!!!! Having the 2 kayaks right there was extremely convenient. We spent every morning and evening by the water. Bob was so nice to get a fire ready for us and Julie brought down s’mores. Both Julie and Bob were so attentive to our needs and answered all of our questions instantly. The sauna was such a nice perk after a long hike. The cabin was very private and quiet. We both would definitely come back and recommend to friends. Loved it!!!
Julie and her husband Bob are some of the most hospitable and kindest people you will ever meet. From the moment you arrive, they make you feel right at home and make check in and getting familiar with the property effective and easy. This was a special trip for my husband and I and Julie knowing this surprised my husband and I with a bottle of wine and some delicious chocolates. It was a kind gesture that went a long way at setting the tone of our stay. Even though the home is shared we had plenty of privacy and had every amenity we could possibly need on vacation. The kayaks were a wonderful surprise and the home was spotless and perfectly located in an area prime for anyone looking to view the beautiful scenic U.P. Including Pictured Rock! We loved our stay and will absolutely be back! Thank you Julie and Bob!
Great stay when you want to see Pictured Rocks and surrounding area. Would recommend to any couples, sauna was great after a soggy kayak trip.
The Lakeside property is gorgeous. Julie and Bob could not be better hosts. Every tiny detail has been considered. We have stayed in many VRBO and B&Bs and this rates number one.
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful place on Lake Superior. The owners are super friendly and have thought of everything to welcome their guests and keep them comfortable while they stay. We look forward to the day when we can stay again!
Awesome place ,extremely clean and relaxing . Would highly recommend this this place for a great get away.
Julie and Bob really have something special here. The cabin was exceptionally clean. It has all the equipment and appliances you could ask for. The sauna is such a bonus! The fireplace puts out more than enough heat to keep you warm and cozy. The beach outside is magnificent. Will definitely be returning here for future trips.
Beautiful downstairs apartment overlooking Lake Superior! Owner's have thought of everything for your stay. Very clean too!
Julie and Bob made sure to account for everything you might ever need. It was truly a home away from home. The thoughtful fridge items like juice, jams, and snacks all the way down to the adorable His & Hers pillows for our anniversary. This place had it all. We will definitely be back and we really appreciate all the little things to make the stay so cozy. Thank you!
The property, the location , the lake, and Bob and Julie where nothing but enjoyable for our whole stay. Located between Pictured Rocks and Marquette with the Au Train River close by made it a special place.
This was my first time using vrbo and I was not disappointed. Julie was an excellent host, providing information on the area creating a welcoming place to stay with attention to detail. Julie was readily available for any inquiries, but allowed for plenty of privacy at the same time.
This was our first time using VRBO and Julie and Bob have set the bar high! We were greeted with a friendly hello, and tour of the aparment. It had everything we might need for the stay! I loved being able to make our own meals and not spend as much money on eating out. Private beach, firepit, sauna and more! Things you cannot get from a hotel stay and you'd paying relatively the same price. Julie was extremely helpful giving recommendations for restaurants and things to do! If we get the opportunity to visit the UP again we will definitely stay there again!! Thank you!!
This is a beautiful quiet place to stay. It is just a few steps away from your own private beach. It is the lower level of Julie and Bob's home but it has its own entrance and is private. We were welcomed with a hug and a tour. Extra special details were made available. They have thought of everything. The last night we were there we sat on the beach and watched the northern lights. It was amazing! Thank you Julie and Bob, we will be back!
Staying at Cherry Point Cottage was nothing short of fantastic. We need some recharging time and this was the place. Julie was very accommodating and helpful. She went above and beyond to make your get away super special.
This was the perfect place for us to unwind and recharge. The space is beautiful and had everything we might need. We had a relaxing fire on the beach, took the kayaks out to the nearby island, and spent one day at PRNL. Absolutely beautiful and so much fun!!
We selected this property for its location and value initially. But it is so much more! We explored the island 1 mile from Bob and Julie’s property, using the kayaks they provided, and what beauty and fun! And we say that even after kayaking and hiking at Pictured Rocks. This was like a mini version of PR but with no one else around. Apartment was very clean and comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed the beach and sunsets and view of water from the deck. We didn’t have time to use the fire pit but would have liked to! They provided everything one could need, including several breakfast options you could easily make yourself. Glad we didn’t have to find a store. Wine and chocolates- above and beyond! We want to tell everyone this trip and stay were fantastic and definitely worth the trip from southern Indiana. Hope to send some family and friends to this little slice of heaven.
My wife and I decided to make a last minute trip to the UP last weekend. Julie and Bob were incredible hosts and the property was flawless. The location had easy access to Marquette and the Pictured Rocks National Shoreline, not mention it took only about 50 steps and we were on the shoreline of Lake Superior. Our last night there, we made a bonfire, grilled dinner, watched the sunset and gazed at the stars. Fantastic trip! Thanks, Julie and Bob.
This location couldn't be more beautiful... We loved stepping right outside to the lake. The fireplace and sauna were perfect extra amenities for cool mornings/evenings, and the space overall is so comfortable & cozy. The hosts have thought of everything; so many details and so much care. (Anything you'd need/want in the kitchen, supplies for spending time on the beach, a white noise machine in the bedroom, instructions for tv/wifi/fireplace/etc...) Absolutely loved our stay, and hope to return again!
Positives - -impeccably clean and comfortable -little kitchenette was actually very functional with fridge, sink, and appliances - good for cooking up a nice hot breakfast and the host even supplied some groceries to do so. -sauna was a welcome spot to warm up after some chilly outdoor experiences. -private entrance, safe -cozy, nice decor and environment. Can control the temperature yourself with gas stove, electric heater, sauna -very friendly and welcoming hosts, even providing some surprise gifts and suggestions -the area is gorgeous in many seasons of the year, with abundant nature to explore and enjoy - Weather permitting you may sit out on a little deck over looking the water and walk along the beach Negatives- -since it is in the basement, though it is walk-out and the door is windowed, there is not much of a view of the lake from the apartment. -you are in the lower level of someone's house, some may prefer more privacy, but we did not have an issue with it and enjoyed our stay.
We took a sort notice trip to the UP for our first anniversary we found this gem of a rental and couldnt have been happier. It is such a nice, clean, and comfortable place with an amazing location. Let it be noted that this place is the private lower level of another home and the owners will most likely be there when you are there. That beign said they are awesome!! So kind and welcoming with out being annoying. They had a card, chocolates and a bottle of wine welcoming us for our anniversay, it was very nice. Long story short..if you are a couple looking for a great little place to get away to, stay here.
We were greeted with a warm welcome, a bottle of wine, and delicious chocolates. Bob and Julie's hospitality is top notch, all around. They were exceptionally respectful of our privacy, yet only a text message away, when we needed help with roasting our cauliflower on the grill. Bob got us all set up with a nice grilling basket and olive oil. Julie left us with an extra blanket for the beach, so we'd be nice and warm by the fire. We very much enjoyed all their thoughtful, extra amenities, including Bob's Jet Fuel. This property and location has a lot to offer - for sunny days and rainy days. We took full advantage of the sauna, pool table, kayaks, and fire pit, but most of all we savored having the entire beach to ourselves, every day. It was a beautiful and very romantic 4 night getaway for us! Neal and Sylvelin Carlton, Green Bay Wisconsin (married 30+ years :-)
Julie and Bob are the ultimate hosts. They thought of everything and made our stay memorable while we celebrated our 5 year anniversary. The bottle of wine, chocolates, Mr and Mrs pillowcases, sauna, and the amazing lake view exceeded our expectations. The location was central to Munising and Marquette which is very convenient. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a romantic and relaxing getaway in the UP!
We stayed in this property for 2 nights and our expectations were exceeded in pretty much every way. Bob and Julie were gracious hosts and welcomed us with everything we needed and more. The walkout itself was perfect in relation to what we were looking for. We loved that it has it own private sauna, a wet bar, good-sized living room with DirecTV, nice comfy bed in a separate bedroom area, and most importantly a perfect view of Lake Superior and direct access to a beautiful sandy beach and view of Au Train Island. We came to the area to see Pictured Rocks but left thinking we could easily spend a lot more time just enjoyed the beautiful scenery and exploring more of the area. I would recommend 100% and look forward to coming back again in the future!
Beautiful. Julie and Bob are so great and fun. Anything I needed they got right to me but everything except a big pot was already provided. Julie even let me play with her new puppy Shamus. We shared beers and chatted a couple of nights and they gave privacy as well. Very considerate folks. Their home is right on the lake and we had coffee with the sunrise daily...the lake changes daily. I didn't steal her yarn but wanted to haha We loved the dunes, the kayak trip and cruise to Pictured Rocks, spotted eagles and cranes, Presque Isle (went back and kayaked here) and lots of waterfalls. We had a great time. Highly recommend for a twosome getaway.
This is a great location and very quiet, the only sounds you hear are the lake Superior waves. We enjoyed every aspect of the property, used the deck over the beach to eat dinner and watch the sunset. It is 15 min to Munising and 30 min to Marquette. Had some nice conversation with Julie and Bob. They made us feel very comfortable and had lots of good advice on the area. We'll be back!
What a beautiful property. Bob and Julie were great. Would recommend to anyone.
The one bedroom walkout is very spacious. Space is very comfortable with three couches perfect for lounging and watching the large screen TV. Wet bar/kitchen nook was well supplied with necessities such as coffee, sugar, cream and tea. A lovely added touch were Doncker’s chocolates and bottle of wine. We even received two National Park series quarters of Pictured Rocks. Julie and Bob were very attentive to all our needs. We’ll be back for sure!
A wonderful apartment with all the modern amenities and with a wonderful location. Really a gem. Julie and Bob are very warm and wonderful people and hosts. It never felt like they were property owners but more of friends. Will definately come again. Loved the place. And Bob, keep brewing🍻
This was an extremely impressive apartment, right on the shores of beautiful Lake Superior. The apartment was a walkout basement of the owner's beautiful home. Thank you to Julie and Bob for sharing their beautiful home with us! The apartment was beautifully decorated, had luxury bedding and even had a sauna. The extra touches of ironed bedding, a complimentary bottle of wine and delicious chocolates were truly appreciated. We would highly recommend a stay at this listing, we will surely be visiting again!
This was a very beautiful place to stay. We stayed here for our honeymoon. When we arrived Julie and Bob were there to greet us. Julie took us for a tour of the accommodations. They had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us and the bedroom was set up with pillow cases that said Mr. and Mrs. I would highly recommend this place to stay. We will be booking this again for future family vacations. You have a great view of AuTrain island from the porch that sits on beautiful Lake Superior. They also have kyaks available to do some exploring. You are close to Pictured rocks and all that the U.P. has to offer. This would also be great for snowmobilers or trail riders as they are close to all the trails.
This is a dark basement walkout converted to efficiency apartment. The owners reside upstairs therefore you hear footsteps, conversation, and vacuuming. We felt the need to use our quiet voices. The apartment is stunning, brand new with every thoughtful amenity including, wood for beach fire, beach towels, sea kayaks, a bottle of wine and superior chocolates. We were greeted by the host, Bob, who graciously gave us his home brewed beer. The arrangement is ideal for a romantic venue for two - only two. We asked permission for our daughter to stay with us - it was allowed but not recommended. It is very frowned upon to have visitors. Overall the apartment is luxurious, but not too private.
My son and I stayed for a way to brief 2 nights and had a fantastic time. The location is perfectly situated between Munising and Marquette for easy access to the parks and lake. The apartment is exactly as pictured, very clean with all of the noted amenities. It's an easy walk out to the deck overlooking Lake Superior with a nice bit of beach below. The hosts, Julie and Bob could not have been more gracious; helpful when ever needed but also respectful of our privacy. I would recommend this property to anyone and hopefully we will return in the future.
The apartment was in the basement of a lovely home located on Lake Superior. The property had many trees and felt secluded. The water was accessible down a flight of stairs not far from the separate entrance to the apartment. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to use the fire pit or grill. We enjoyed the view of the water from the porch overlooking the beach area. The stars were amazing. The area where we stayed was large, containing a separate bedroom and an open area with a family room and kitchenette. Wi-Fi and satellite TV were provided and the sauna in the bathroom felt wonderful on a chilly morning. The area was clean and inviting and we were sad to leave. The hosts were nice and caring and were worried about us when we arrived later than expected. The property is a short distance from Munising, where we enjoyed a day hiking Grand Island and another day on a boat tour of Pictured Rocks. My only regret was that we didn’t stay longer. We had a rare glimpse of what it would be like living on Lake Superior in July. An experience that we could not have gotten from staying in a hotel. I only hope that I can make it back there again. An all-around wonderful experience, thank you.
We were lucky enough to find this little gem for our 4th of July weekend in the UP! Julie and Bob do an amazing job at taking care of their property and not to mention, they are simply wonderful people. Their basement apartment is very clean and comfortable. The bed was extremely comfortable and blackout curtains help you sleep in! The kitchen was fully loaded with utensils, plates, bowls, mugs, and a bonus was the ice machine in the freezer. A grill was provided right outside of our door for easy access to cooking our meals. The living room was spacious and nice to relax in after a long day of hiking and kayaking. The sauna in the bathroom was certainly a luxury to come back to after a long day running around. The location was perfect for our needs. It is close to quiet Au Train beaches and no more than 20 minutes from Munising. Thanks so much for your hospitality, Julie and Bob! We hope to visit again soon! P.S. the wi-fi connection worked great!
