Friendly dogs allowed on leash (busy road, woods, and close neighbors); clean up after dog and please don't leave dog on property unattended.
Access Road Conditions: Driveway is right off of Whitefish Point Road, not far from the town of Paradise. Rig will have to be able to pull in, and back into space. Leaving, must be able to pull out slightly, back up again, and go out the driveway the way you entered. We manage it with a 24 foot travel trailer in the space you see in the image. Gravel pad offered is one of the two slots (on either side of the small tree) you see in the pictures. Using slide outs and awning probably ok. Spot is level. Entry/driveway has ditch on either side, so must make a nice precise turn onto property. The spot is in our yard, right beside pole barn and cabin, which are both visible--i.e. a shared space, not private. Guests are welcome to use fire pit on property in front of the cabin, barring too much wind. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: A tow vehicle can park if unhooked in advance.

Heather and Greg greeted us with a warm welcome and were very helpful in getting set up, which was very accessible. They offer a cozy spot to stay located in the middle of all there is to do in the area i.e. close to restaurants, stores, the Shipwreck museum, the lake and the Tahquamenon Falls. We enjoyed our stay and the conversations with our hosts.

We enjoyed our stay very much! Our hosts were very hospitable and interesting folks to get to know! We enjoyed an evening bon fire and very good company. This is a close and lovely drive to both Whitefish Bay and the Shipwreck Museum and Tahquamenon Falls!
