Making Memories with Big Powderhorn Lodging

These are a few reviews from our recent guests at Big Powderhorn Lodging:

Review left on Escapia for Alpen Villa 4:

November 2021 Stay

“Initially rented this condo as a place to stay for fall season hiking and extended my stay for an additional month! It is conveniently located to local area hiking (Black River Harbor) and the Porcupine Mountains (35 minute drive to the Presque Isle Campground, 50 min to Visitor Center via South Boundary Rd). Was also able to access the Wolverine Nordic trails (Powderhorn Loop) by hiking right from the condo up the ski hill. The condo was clean, comfortable and provided everything I required for a 2 month respite! Special thanks to Kevin for keeping the firewood well stocked for when the snow came!”

Review left on Mobile App for Celtic Haus:

July 2021 Stay

“Came up north for a long weekend with the dogs to check out the Apostle Islands and Porcupine Mtns. Celtic Haus was a great in-between location for our day trips. Liked the spacious cabin, well-equipped kitchen, new deck in the canopy of trees, and surrounding quiet. We’d spent the few nights before in a cramped beach front place on the Door Peninsula, and Celtic Haus felt like a mansion. We tend to rotate trips every 2-3 years but would absolutely come back.”

July 2021 Stay

“My daughter and I had a very nice stay at Mt Vista. It was a cozy little cabin and we both enjoyed it very much. We have vacationed at Powder Horn several times in the past and are never disappointed with our stay. We will be back :)”

June 2021 Stay

“We had 7 kids and 9 adults and we all fit perfectly. Lovely location for waterfalls and Lake Superior. Home was VERY well stocked with slow cookers, electric griddle, cookie sheets, and more. No complaints.”

Review left on Escapia for Czech Inn II:

February 2021 Stay

“This was our 2nd year staying at the Czech Inn property and we will definitely be back. We are a family of 4. We have two boys 7 & 3 and they prefer vacationing at Big Powerhorn vs Florida! The home is so cozy, clean and perfectly placed. I can sit inside with my youngest and watch skiers while sipping hot cocoa by our fireplace. Lift lines are short. I highly recommend the Czech Inn property.”

January 2021 Stay

“The Celtic house and Big Powderhorn Resort provided a great trip for a small group during these strange times. The lodging was perfect! Well equipped kitchen, plenty of beds and lots of shared space to occupy. The location couldn’t be better if you’re looking to ski. It was only a 3 minute drive to the parking lot which made coming back for lunch a breeze. There was great wifi where all of our guests could be connected. Would visit again!”

Review left on Escapia for Sun Up/Down:

January 2021 Stay

“The staff was the best. When it snowed, they were quick to respond with salt and shoveled the walk for us. The front desk was quick to respond for questions we had about where things were located. When we left items there, staff looked and found items promptly and had a process in place to send out items back. We had the house to ourselves and the freedom to do what we wanted while still having the amenities and benefit of a hotel staff. Great stay!!”

Review left on VRBO for Poleski:

December 2020 Stay

“Second time staying at this location in the same year! Decided to come for a winter visit with some friends to just hang out before the holidays. It was the perfect place for us to do a white elephant and play plenty of board games together. The fire place was a hit especially after some winter hiking to the waterfalls! Poleski is the perfect location and home for a little getaway! Bonus is that it’s dog friendly. My dog did not want to leave!”

Review left on VRBO for Hillside Haus:

September 2020 Stay

“Relaxing, inviting, and a great place for a family getaway. We had our extended family with us: grandma, aunts, uncle, cousins, ages 4 to 71 and everyone had a great time relaxing with nature, seeing some waterfalls, fishing, and combing the shoreline. The property was well kept and plenty of space for all, even if someone needed to get away from the rest of us for some quiet time. They have the inside updated and had no concerns while there. Their kitchen was one of the best supplied I’ve seen; they even had a tea kettle and as a tea drinker, I’ve never seen one at a cabin or resort kitchenette till now! We didn’t ski as it was fall, but we still used the ski cubbies. They worked great for everyone to have their own luggage cubbie for their stuff without it being all over the cabin, especially for the kids. I would highly recommend this property.”

Review left on VRBO for Chateau Merlot:

July 2020 Stay

“Excellent House! We had a family reunion at the house for three families. There was 6 adults and 10 kids. Downstairs was perfect for the kids to hangout and leave the adults alone! We loved the patio! Big and roomy for us to grilled , eat and chill after going hiking at Porcupine Mountain . We went to the Lake every day to swim. The house has everything we need. The bedroom was enough for all of us. Even if there was a little water heater issues, Bernie, came right away and fix the issues! He’s a great & awesome guy! Thanks Bernie! Charlene, who answered at the office, was super SWEET to me. She answered all my questions and got us in early . Thanks Charlene! We will come back for sure.”
