Sept 2019 UP Getaway
A fantastic place to relax and recharge. The home was spacious. The kitchen has everything needed to prepare meals. Birds and woodland creatures abound. The sauna was a plus! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
Donna, thanks for taking the time to write this great review! Sunset House is the perfect getaway location, and you're right, birds and woodland creatures abound. We hope to see you again.
Get away from a city
If you want to get away from a big city this is a perfect location. Beautiful lake, woods and solitude!
Lukasz, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Sunset House. We agree, it is the perfect place to go to really get away. The sauna, kayak, paddleboat, rowboat and hammock all mean the guests will never be bored! We hope you come back again.
Nice, quiet place for a family. Great lake for swimming to the floating dock and great for fishing.
Amber, we hope that you caught lots of fish! Sunset House has great fishing and is very secluded and quiet. Windows surround the cabin, which makes you feel connected to nature. We know that mosquitoes can be bad in the UP, and you are right, the screened in porch helps a lot. We do hope that you come back again.
Sunset House is a great get away spot
Very nice setting. In the middle of nowhere. With plenty to do or perfect place to just sit back and enjoy the beauty of the out doors with its large screened in porch's. Would rent again.
Dawn, we love when our guests appreciate our property as much as we do. The screened in porches are pretty special. We look forward to your return stay.
Had a wonderful time.
We enjoyed our stay. Mosquitoes were ferocious. Couldn't do anything outside the cabin without being eaten alive. The cabin is surrounded by swamp so the mosquitoes were particularly bad around the cabin. The rest of the area was beautiful. We really enjoyed ishpeming, and Marquette. The u.p. of Michigan is beautiful.
Sunset House is surrounded by forest on Mud Lake which connects to Horseshoe Lake. As is true of the UP in summer, mosquitoes can be an issue. the house comes with a kayak, paddleboat and a rowboat plus dogs are welcome. It has a wonderful screened in-porch, and a sauna where up to 8 people can enjoy!
Peace and Quiet
The Sunset House was just what me and my family needed. Very clean, quiet, and comfortable. We loved the sauna, the screen porch, and swimming to the raft. The weather was very warm, so that was to our advantage. We hope to come back again and again.
Sunset House is a special place, and the view of Mud Lake is extraordinary. Having windows all around the house makes you feel like you are out in nature, even when you are inside. The sauna for 8 people is really a fabulous addition, plus dogs are welcome!
Sunset House is located in the heart of Upper Michigan on the outskirts of Republic, Michigan. The area features many lakes, trails, and outstanding natural beauty.
Republic sits in the center of Upper Michigan … just off of M95. Sunset House is just 5 minutes off the highway and its a nice easy drive.
