Frequently Asked Questions/Subjects

Bathroom: Even though the Island is rustic, we do have a normal toilet and sink with a neat shower that has you surrounded by the logs of the 1800s. We even have a wonderful, heated floor in the bathroom. The bathroom has the historic drain slope of the room, which was customary at the time of new, indoor plumbing, though we have tried to maintain the historic feel.

Bugs: Yes, there are bugs on the Island. There are mosquitos. The Island vacation is not for everyone. It is for true outdoorsy guests who are flexible and love an adventure, while enjoying many of the amenities of an historic cabin.

Dock: The docks are floating docks. Due to the fluctuation of the river levels we are not able to control, we do our best to During the late summer/fall, the Michigamme River can be low and muddy. We advise you to please bring boots, plus your patience between mid-August and October.

Fishing poles? I would advise you to bring your own fishing poles to the Island. While we normally have fishing poles there, I can never be sure. At times there are many, other times I can’t find one. They pop in and out, get left outside and on the boats. If it’s important for you to fish, please bring your own.

Grocery Store? The closest, full-sized grocery store is about a 1/2 hour drive from the cabin, Ishpeming. It is the IGA Jubilee right on U.S 41. If you are driving from Wisconsin/Chicago, the last grocery store is in Iron Mountain.

There is a little store in the town of Republic, about 15 minutes from the cabin, yet there isn't a large selection, and the prices are convenience-store equivalent.

There is a larger convenience store/BP Gas station on the corner of U.S. 41 and MI-95, about 20 minutes North of the cabin.

Hammock? We do have a hammock on the Island. I love it! Enjoy!

Internet? We just got wi-fi Internet on the Island! Personally, I do think it is good to disconnect from technology for awhile, yet I listened and realized that many do need to check in with work while they are vacationing.

Linens? Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I’ll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Pets? Yes, we do accept dogs, yet we do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin. Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on. Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we’ll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. We don’t currently charge extra for pets, as we’ve had such a positive experience with pet-owners thus far. J Generally, dogs love the Island with all the water and places to explore.
