Located in the heart of downtown Ishpeming, our vacation rentals make a great homebase for all of your outdoor adventures. The RAMBA trail network has 80 miles of singletrack trails for mountain biking, trail running, and hiking, and the main trailhead is one mile away. We are located two blocks away from the finish line of the Marji Gesick and Polar Roll Ultra. Access to snowmobile trails is just a few blocks away on Hematite. Cross country skiing is available nearby at the UP Nordic Ski Complex or Al Quaal in Ishpeming, or Forestville in Marquette.
