Overview

Enjoy a relaxing vacation in our comfortable lake home. Beautiful views of Lake Superior from the great room, the master bedroom and the full length deck. Sunsets, stars, northern lights, freighters, birds and the lake in its many moods are yours to enjoy. Take a walk on the beach, go rock-hounding, skip stones and swim on our beach.

Use the cottage as your base to explore the Copper Country. Beautiful beaches, breathtaking views, mine tours, lighthouse tours, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, waterfall viewing, sea kayaking, museums, shopping and dining are among the many pleasures of Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula.

Horizon Point Cottage has all the comforts of home with two bedrooms (a king-size bed in the master bedroom and two bunk beds in the other); full bathroom; fully equipped kitchen with microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher. The full length deck has a picnic table, gas grill and patio furniture for lounging. The great room is has comfortable furniture situated around a gas fireplace. There is a TV with a DVD/VCR and a library of kids and grown-up movies. There is a radio with CD and Bluetooth capabilities and a weather radio. We have a large collection of puzzles and games. There is no Wi-Fi because we come to the Lake to get away from our day to day worries.

Sheets and towels are provided. We keep a supply of kitchen staples to make packing easier for you; foil, basic spices, condiments plus sugar and flour and coffee.

So, pack your clothes and bring your food and let the cares of the world get washed away with the sound of the waves and the freshest air imaginable.

About Jerry and Nancy Rabe (402-219-0789)

We met and fell in love while students at MTU back in the late 1970's. Jerry is from Lower Michigan, Nancy is from Ironwood. The natural beauty and serenity of the Keweenaw area captured our hearts during those early years. Several years later we returned with our young family for a week long stay in Eagle River. The cottage we rented was a bit of a dive, but we all had an absolutely wonderful time. We started dreaming of having a place a place of our own on Lake Superior. The 10 year plan for our cottage became the five year plan when the cottage was completed in 2006. We designed it as our Dream Home ... to be comfortable, cozy and easy to care for.

Why Jerry and Nancy chose this location:
We chose this property because of its location, beautiful setting and ease of building. We love that we can keep it open year round when we choose to. We love the shared beach area and our wonderful neighbors (who aren't too close!) We love sitting on the beach watching the waves change throughout the day and watching the sun set in the evening. We love being within minutes of everything the Keweenaw has to offer. The area has dug its hooks deeply into our souls. When we are away, we are constantly dreaming of our return.

What makes this house unique:
The beach! The view! The smell of fresh air and cedar trees! Our sandy swimming area! Deer and fox, woodpeckers, loons and eagles! Freighters, fishing boats and sailboats! Kayaks and canoes! Falling asleep to the sound of the waves and catching the occasional northern light show.

House Rules
A $300 security deposit is due within 7 days of your reservation. This will be returned within 15 days of your visit if there is no damage or theft. The cost of repairs/replacement will be deducted from your deposit. By sending the security deposit, you agree to abide by our policies. We agree to hold the week or weekend exclusively for your use and to return your deposit as promptly as possible. Cancellation Policy: Your deposit will be fully refunded if you cancel up to 30 days before your stay. If you cancel less than 30 days before your stay, you will forfeit your deposit. No smoking allowed. No pets allowed. Check in time is 3:00 p.m. Check out time is 10:00. We pay for 2 hours of cleaning time, if the cottage is so messy it takes more than 2 hours, the additional cost will be deducted from your security deposit. Please be careful, especially on the beach. The waves can be very powerful and the rocks can get slippery. We are not responsible for accidents or injury. The ice on the lake in winter shifts around a lot, we don’t recommend going out on it. There is a swim area that we share with the neighbors. The jointly owned beach is available for you to use only for swimming. We have received a few complaints from our neighbors about our guests’ behavior in this shared area: be aware that the beach chairs, kayaks, etc in the swim area belong to the neighbors and are not available for you to use. Please keep your beach fires in the fire pit in front of our cottage. Important Note: Lake Superior water level is much higher than normal this year, resulting in less space between the water line and the woods. Please be sure to keep your beach fires a safe distance from the woods. There are wild animals around, so don’t leave food outside for them. So far we have seen deer, a fox, squirrels, and raccoons. We have been told that there are bears around. Please put the garbage cans out by the road on Tuesday evening for Wednesday pick-up. Thank you. The phone is available for local calls only; please do not make any long distance calls. Bring a prepaid phone card for any long distance calls. We have no problems with cell phone reception at the cottage (Verizon) although there are many dead spots around the area. No bones or banana peels in the garbage disposal. We are trusting you with our dream home, please do not abuse that trust.
