Your unique home on Lake Superior is situated on a dune running straight up from the beach. It has an unrivaled spectacular 180 degree view of mighty Lake Superior to the north, with Marquette on the western end of the shoreline and Shot Point on the eastern end of the shoreline.
Your home has a lakeside master bedroom with a king size bed, a second bedroom with bunk beds and a washer and dryer, and a four-seasons room with a full bed, futon bed, picnic table and a striking view of Lake Superior.
Your comfortable and inviting living room has two couches, chairs, a gas fireplace, a large dining table, and three large windows directly overlooking pine trees, shore and surf. The largest picture window has a magnificent direct northern view of Lake Superior in all its placid beauty or wind blown fury.

Watch the numerous comings and goings of bald eagles and ore boats from inside the living room, sitting in the front yard, or down on the beach.
Enjoy direct access to the beach for swimming, beach fires, beach walks and sunsets. You can bring your own canoes and kayaks and carry them down to the beach.
Grill your dinner on the barbecue outside and choose between eating on an outdoor table in the front yard, a picnic table in the four-seasons room, or the dining room table in the living room.
Enjoy an evening swim and then sit around a warm beach fire while watching the ever-changing colors of the evening sunset. The lights of Marquette will soon start to glimmer. Look up into the night sky and be amazed at the number of stars and the amount of the Milky Way you can see.
Your house and beach is many miles away from any source of light pollution and the darkness of the night combined with the 180 degree viewpoint of the sky looking north over Lake Superior provides a spectacular star gazing feast for the senses.
Watch for meteors, satellites and the International Space Station overhead. Keep watch at night over Lake Superior to the north for occasional incredible displays of Northern Lights (also known as the Aurora Borealis). Track the moon and planetary schedules for additional astronomical treats. (Sometimes a new moon will rise in the middle of the night over Shot Point to the east and appear as a crimson sliver in the late night sky.) Marvel at the occasional night displays of brilliant lightning above mighty Lake Superior.
