Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a charming cabin! It is directly across from Lake Superior - imagine waking up and looking out the window to a spectacular clear lake view. It is close to Marquette, nothing is more than a few minutes away. Everything we needed was there. The cabin is clean and comfortable, with plenty of space for us to relax and unwind. The owners are friendly and it was a pleasure to do business with them. We are already making plans to go back next year!

Another great time at the Rock Cut Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and our dog) have been staying at the Rock Cut Cabin for several years now. It is perfect for us. The cabin itself has two nice bedrooms, full bath, cozy living area, and nicely-updated kitchen.

Our favorite parts of the cabin are the fireplace and view of Lake Superior. Spectacular! The cabin is located across from the paved walking/biking path that goes into Marquette. The cabin is located outside Marquette and is very quiet.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over new years and had a wonderful stay. The weather was was frigid outside but it was cozy inside. Wonderful view of the lake and close enough to town you can get a cab if needed. Very clean, and the owners were very accommodating.

Wonderful hiking and four wheeling in the area, plus great eating and shopping. Lots of historical sites and museums, too. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

Needs attention to musty smell

  • 1 of 5

As a previous reviewer stated, the cabin is old and very musty. The owners have updated the kitchen with counters and cabinets, but need to work out a solution for the ventilation issue because it was not pleasant. The towels provided also smelled musty; not sure if they had been left in a washer overnight or absorbed the smell from being in a closed, musty cabinet. I saw several cobwebs along the ceiling and in the 2nd bedroom. A cleaning crew following a checklist would have easily found these things.

The internet was functional; we did not use the tv during our stay.

The cabin can accommodate 4 people and has a pullout couch in the living room if needed.

Beautiful views of Lake Superior

My suggestion is to focus on a good deep cleaning and resolve the musty smell (which dates back to a negative review in 2014)
