    April getaway

    We love Lake Superior and staying in a quiet place by the water. The Mission Springs Resort definitely fit the bill. Before we even got there, Katie, the owner, upgraded us to a larger cabin to better fit our family of five. She also ensured that the lights were on as we were arriving in the dark. The cabin is simple and clean. A great place to relax by the fire pit on a chilly spring day or play games inside. The location is near Ashland which has a great co-op and also Bayfield and the Apostle Islands. Katie recommended Houghton Falls and it did not disappoint. Highly recommend checking out this magical spot! Also hiked to caves at Meyers Beach which was also spectacular! Thanks for the much needed respite Katie!

    Great for pets

    We stayed here with our 2 dogs and it was perfect. We stayed during the winter so we were able to run the dogs on the lake and they were free to roam. Good price for the continence.

    Great cabin experience, located right off Lake Superior.

    Quant cabin near Ashland, right off the lake. A/C and heat. Bonfire pit and picnic table were great and we used them every night! Firewood was provided by the owner (great plus!).

    Great little getaway

    This was a good spot for a quick getaway from the western UP. It had lake access, options for a fire, was close to Ashland/Bayfield and was generally charming. It was the right amount that private and peaceful.

    Out stay at cabin #12 was everything we wanted/needed. The location was perfect. We just wished it was a longer stay. The weather was perfect! We really appreciated all the small touches (ice cream, relaxing firepit, etc). Can't wait to come back. Thanks for everything.

    Our family enjoyed a week at Missions Springs Cabin 12. The beach was visible from both our bedroom windows. With the windows open we could hear the waves and birds. Although the larger property is shared, we rarely ran into our neighbors. It felt like our own little piece of north woods heaven. The ferry to Madeline Island is close. We visited Tetzner’s Dairy twice to get more delicious ice cream. (Our first container was left by our hostess, Katie.) We had a kayak delivered to our beach from a local company (Katie connected us with the rental company). The house is tiny, but enough for a family of 4. We have 2 boys, 10 and 15, and all of us were cozy but never had a fight! (Boy moms will understand this miracle.) The kitchen is very basic, but everything works. The bathroom is tiny! Beds are comfortable (tiny) and there was plenty of room to put up our queen sized air mattress in the living room. We loved our evenings by the fireplace outside and it was a great bonus that firewood was provided. Don’t forget your matches! We had a great vacation and loved our time at the cabin. I highly recommended.

    We enjoyed our weekend at Mission Springs! The location is very easy to find and a short drive from both Bayfield and Ashland. Cabin 12 was quaint, clean, and comfortable. We appreciated the newer furniture in the living room and newer appliances (fridge, stove). We spent some time exploring the area (Ashland, Bayfield, Houghton Falls, Great Lakes Visitor Center) and some time at the cabin (campfires, lawn games, short walk to the waterfront, board games at the dining table when it rained). The table in the kitchen is small, but we added two leaves from the bedroom closet which made it plenty big enough for meals and games. The kitchen was stocked with just what we needed for meals. Our toddler loved playing in the sand by the shoreline, although the water in the end of June was too chilly for real swimming. The groundskeeping was well done and our trash was never full for long. Staff was very accommodating. Communication with Mission Springs was great before and during our stay via email and texting. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family!

    Relaxing cottage with Lake Superior so close!

    The sound of the lake lapping on the shore just a stones throw from the cottage was so relaxing. A great way to fall asleep every night! Great customer service. Immediate response to my text got us tips on things to see and a wonderful café in the nearby town for lunch and the best blueberry turnovers ever. We used the fire pit each night which helped us unwind and unplug for our sisters getaway. I would stay here again and recommend to family and friends.

    Spacious beautiful cabin!

    I was very impressed by how roomy the cabin was after staying in MUCH smaller cabins for the samme price along the north shore. The beach is the only slight dissapointment. It’s small and lots of undergrowth around it, making the view just ok. Very pleased with the rooms themeeves and the customer service, would recommend to a friend, especially for the price!
