My home is 10 minutes away from Michigan Tech and Houghton but has the solitude of a backwoods cabin--no noise, just the birds and wildlife and the peace and quiet of Mother Nature! There is great hiking, camping, fishing, canoeing, and hunting all very close by. Grocery stores, dining, Houghton night-life, and the waterfront are all within an easy 10 minute drive. Or just enjoy the pond, the hammock, and hikes on the 8 acre property before settling on the deck to watch the Northern Lights.
There is a bedroom, kitchen, family room, and full bath on the base level of the house. There is also access to the backyard and sauna from this level. Up the stairs is access to the "driveway level" and large wood deck. There is a common area, office space, and full bath with Jacuzzi bathtub here. Stairs lead to a lofted bedroom with excellent views to the north and south through the big windows.
Guests have access to the entire house, sauna, and property. Access to the utility shed and garage will be limited.
I will be available by phone or email, and we have great friends who serve as excellent hosts that will also be available. The neighbors are great too.
There is a coffee maker, blender, fully-equipped kitchen. We provide linens, blankets, and towels for the bathroom and sauna.
- Smoking permitted outside the house.
- Campfires permitted in fire ring by pond.
I recently received my PhD in Geology from Michigan Tech and will be moving to Ecuador to teach at a university there. My wife is from Spain, and we were married in the backyard of this house (our dream house!) in July 2015. Sad to leave this place, but we know we'll be back as often as we can!
