About listing

This barn was built in 2015 Kemp's Carriage House Loft Rental and is located next to our Kemp's Portage Lake Log Home Rental, VRBO #487326. Rental of both properties allows for groups of up to 33 guests!! Here is a link to a 3D virtual tour of this property: This rental is also across the street from Portage Lake and is conveniently located near all the exciting special events, attractions, and recreational opportunities of the Keweenaw Peninsula. Michigan Tech and Finlandia Universities are only six miles away. The main floor of this rental is for the owner’s storage. The loft rental area contains three bedrooms, three baths with tiled walk in showers and a sauna. It provides beds to sleep sixteen, perfect for a family reunion or a large group. It also includes a full kitchen, surround sound system, as well as a washer and dryer. The well-designed kitchen along with an outside charcoal grill makes cooking easy for those who want to eat in rather than go out. All pots, pans, dishes, towels and sheets are provided. You only need to bring your consumable goods! Many antique items used in the loft have been obtained from our local area. Interior building materials were reclaimed from old barns and buildings. The corrugated metal roofing lining the interior ceiling and some walls came from the Ford wood plant in Pequaming. (This plant provided local wood for the construction of the Ford Model T and A cars built in the 1920 and 30's). Reclaimed hardwood’ over 100 years old was used for the flooring. Interior walls are also finished with reclaimed wood. 
 A lot of local history has been used in the decoration of this rental property. Some items came from the Atlas Powder plant formerly located on the 1400 acres behind the property. There are also many logging tools, some over 100 years old. All of this adds up to a large comfortable space with a very cozy feeling.

    The property is great. Not to far from Houghton/Hancock and is also located close to the snowmobile trail. Lots of space. The owners of the place are very friendly and helpful. The inside of the cabin is very nice and cozy. Lots of beds if there are many people and also three bathrooms and three showers is great. Most of all the dishes that you would need are provided for you and so is a washer, dryer, and dishwasher. Will definitely be coming back in the future. 30 December 2015 - 22:08:00
  2. We stayed here for our staff retreat. Two of the rooms have large bunk rooms. This would be great for large families or if there was a large group coming through to snowmobile. It was well outfitted with kitchen supplies, so we cooked in almost every night. We even held meetings in the living room during the day. This is a great space. The only down side would be if you have someone who could not do stairs, since it is on the second floor. It is right on the water across the street from a roped off swimming area. We had a fire by the lake every evening. We are already planning our return trip! 19 July 2016 - 19:28:00

    This loft vacation home was a great find. It is one of the nicest homes that we found in the area and was in close proximity to all of the things we wanted to do. We had two families sharing the property and there was plenty of space to make us all comfortable. We really loved its interior; definitely a one-of-a-kind find!!! 19 August 2016 - 13:14:00

    Everything was perfect at the Loft. Beautiful, clean and in a great location. It was the perfect place for a large gathering - 14 of us from 3 different arms of the family. We're so happy to have found this great home. Thanks Sandy 26 August 2016 - 14:22:00

    Awesome VRBO. Super cool place to stay, and everything was very clean and well kept- bathrooms, kitchen, bedrooms. The decor, furniture, and finishes are top notch. We stay in a lot of high end VRBO places, and this is actually our favorite of all time. Outdoor patio at the apartment and fire pit down by the lake were both huge bonuses. Owners are great people and very responsive. 19 September 2016 - 22:02:08
  6. My family thoroughly enjoyed our time at this spacious, fully-furnished home with a well-stocked kitchen. Many family members especially loved the indoor electric sauna with adjoining shower! I also had the pleasure of viewing the large log home rental on the property, and that is also a beautiful home. I highly recommend this owner and property, and we will definitely book with them again. 08 December 2016 - 12:45:00

    We loved it ! Only issue was it was very hot the first few days and no air conditioner. It is the U.P. so this is rarely an issue but it was an issue for us. Otherwise a very nice place. 06 August 2017 - 12:22:00

    We were very impressed with the loft rental. The owners were very accommodating. We have already booked our stay for next fall. 17 October 2017 - 12:19:00
  14. This amazing cabin/barn is set just off of Beautiful Portage Lake. It housed myself as well as half our missions team of 15 for a week with easy while we were working in the Hancock area. It was great to come home after a longs day of work and relax with a bonfire, fishing, food, and a little space to run and play. I would recommend this property for anyone with large groups as it has plenty of space to eat, relax, and play. The multiple kitchens and baths were awesome with so many teenagers. Everything was provided. 09 July 2015 - 14:10:15
  15. Incredible. Everything was first class. Great staff. The #1 choice for 10 person trip. Loved it, we be back. The construction of the place is museum like. Contractor/builder has some serious artistic talents. Thanks for everything. 02 March 2016 - 21:49:23

    I only have positive things to say about our visit here for 3 nights during MLK weekend 2016. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need and then some. It is clearly a very new home, so everything is new and extremely clean. The sauna is the best feature in my opinion. Also appreciated was the fast wifi, the satellite flat screen TVs (with HD!) and the spacious and fancy fridge. All-in-all just a great property and wonderful visit. 26 January 2016 - 06:07:05

    Sandy and Dan keep amazing us with their places. We've had the pleasure of staying at three of their places now and and they keep impressing the heck out of us. The design was incredible and well thought out, the parking for our trailers was the best we have ever seen, and the service was excellent. We had a problem with one of our sleds and Dan didn't hesitate to help when asked for some help. Can't wait to get back next year! 17 January 2018 - 02:56:00

    We really enjoyed our stay. The accommodations are first class. Very impressive construction. Truly a work of art. Well stocked with cooking utensils. Plenty of cups, plates and flatware. Plenty of room for good sized group. Close to town. Easy access to what we agreed is the most scenic trails for ATV's we've ridden. Note, it is a loft. Be prepared to carry your provisions up two flights of stairs. 03 October 2017 - 10:42:00
