My wife and I recently had the opportunity to visit Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and rented this wonderful property situated right on the southern shore of Lake Superior. From start to finish our stay at this property met and exceeded all of our expectations. Hands down the property is one of the newest and nicest vacation rentals in the area and comes extremely well appointed with many nice touches from the fully appointed kitchen to the amazing and luxurious towels provided in the bathrooms. Ivan was our host and he was super responsive before, during, and after our stay. We look forward to our next visit to this property and the area. I can’t imagine renting or staying anywhere else when visiting the area.

Beautiful little Finnish beach house. Very new and so clean. Excellent communication with owner. We enjoyed sunsets, beach-combing, and hearing the waves of Lake Superior. Perfect little getaway. Already looking for future dates

We loved the property's proximity to the water and hearing the waves crash on the beach. The bed was super comfortable and we slept like logs after day trips to hike and bike the local area. The owner was very helpful and incredibly gracious. We would absolutely stay here again.

This rental was absolutely amazing. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is a great spot to do just that. The lakehouse had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully stocked so we were able to cook all meals there, very comfortable bed, and the location right on the lakefront allowed us to see some beautiful sunsets during our stay. The mosquitoes were absolutely terrible so bring some bug spray! Ivan was very responsive and communication was great--thank you for being so accommodating! Highly recommended rental 🙂

My husband, two toddlers and myself had a great stay. The home is equipped with everything a family of four could ever need. The home was very comfortable and included AC and nice beds. The beach is private and was a great place for my toddlers to find rocks and swim. The location was perfect as it is very close to the Porcupine Mountains where we greatly enjoyed exploring. The days are long but the years are short so do yourself a favor and visit this fantastic place!

Everything about the lake house is amazing. From the location, to the architecture and decor, and the thoughtful amenities made this the perfect choice for our 25th anniversary getaway. The sunrises and sunsets were glorious and as a amateur night sky photographer, I so enjoyed the night sky and view of the Milky Way right from the boardwalk. Book early and often... Jarven Hytti is not to be missed!

This house was so amazing! We loved the location: the beachfront is perfect for sunrises, sunsets, and rock hunting, and it’s super close to the Porcupine Mountains and tons of waterfalls. We saw bald eagles flying overhead and enjoyed the wild flowers growing near the boardwalk. Our kids loved taking a sunset plunge into Lake Superior! The house is also so lovely with stunning architecture, amazing decks, and cozy fireplaces. Ivan and Susan really thought of everything and were really responsive to questions. 100% wonderful!! We hope to come back someday!

This place is nothing short of dream living. Everything is clean, functional and well-planned out. From the evening hum of the frogs to the waves lapping the shore, this place is top notch all the way. The beds are comfy and the gas fireplace is a wonderful touch. So many agates on the beach and other interesting rocks to find. I will be back and I hope sooner than later!

Wonderful property with great proximity to Porcupine Mt. State Park. Very clean and comfortable. Owner very responsive. So enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and bird watching from the deck. The pathway over the marshy area to Lake Superior was wonderful. Don't miss star gazing!

We just spent several days at this lovely property. Truly the setting, the home, the attention to detail all added up to a magical experience. The fully equipped kitchen (no detail forgotten) allowed us to eat all of our meals in with no trouble. We used the grill, the oven, the stove top. So nice! Bedroom and bath were super clean and very comfortable. We loved the living area with fireplace. All added up to a cozy and tranquil week. We truly felt at home here! And finally, I loved the touches of Finland. I'm of Finnish descent so this added to my experience!

My family and I had the best time here. You can see sunrise and sunsets from the beach. We found so much beach glass and even a few agates. We walked the beach every day as far as we could and then watched the stars and northern lights. Perfect place for adventure and relaxation. Thank you again for sharing your piece of heaven on earth. xoxo
