Guest Feedback

“The afternoons were filled with laughter from the kids playing on the beach and the aqua park. The evenings were filled with fishing, kayaking, canoeing and sitting by the fire pit talking and making s’mores with the other guests. After spending almost a week with Angie, Jeff, and their family at U.P. Sunrise Cottages, I can tell you that what they have created is an atmosphere unlike I’ve experienced anywhere else. The day we left we had already decided this would be a yearly trip.” -Gavin D.

“Exceeded our expectations! … Cabins include all necessary amenities, are clean and cozy. There are lake toys for all ages, [boats], clean sand beach with kids toys, and of course the aqua park…Very kid friendly, Angie is amazing, just expect to relax and enjoy if you’re lucky enough to visit here.”–Anna F.

“This is the most amazing place to rent for families with children and grandkids! Angie and Jeff are AMAZING hosts! The cabins are so great! … The kids are already asking when we can go back up.” –Debbie M.

Watch the sun come up with a warm cup of coffee, go for an early morning paddle, and take advantage of the areas’ many attractions and local restaurants! Come back to relax with a book on the beach, watch your kids play for hours on the aquapark, and end the day with s’mores over the campfire! We want you to feel right at home and have an amazing family vacation with us! Come and catch a sunrise with us!
