Welcome to pristine, private Upper Holmes Lake in the center of Iron County. This Lodge was totally
updated in 2014 with your Family 'Vacation Satisfaction' as its goal. The front 1/2 of the Lodge is a
combination kitchen, dining room and living room with big windows to the lake. The deck is 12' wide across
the entire front of the Lodge and includes a picnic table and chairs and a new gas grill. The back half of the
Lodge contains a big bathroom, and 2 big bedrooms. One bedroom overlooks the lake, is very private and
contains one double bed, a big mirrored dresser and matching sitting bench. The second bedroom
contains a set of double bed bunks and a set of single bed bunks. The living room couch also folds out to
provide a double bed. The maximum number of guests is limited to six people.
The private lake provides swimming, boating and good pan fishing with an occasional bass, pike or walleye.
This lake is home to beaver, otter, loons, songbirds and nearby nesting bald eagles. Deer, bear and grouse
are abundant and a moose occasionally visits the lake.
A fire pit with adjustable hanging grill is in the yard and firewood is supplied for your hot dogs, s'mores and
relaxation. This cabin and its private acreage, on a private lake, allow you to reconnect with nature and
enjoy the convenience of a small town only minutes away. We encourage long term stays and will consider
reducing the rates for periods over 30 days. The owner’s private 100 acres is for your recreational use.
Private trails and scenic vistas are included on this acreage. From Olookout Bluff you can see Crystal Falls,
which is 5 miles away, as you look out over the Paint River valley. Take your lunch and cell phone/computer
along. A picnic table is provided and 4G service is almost guaranteed atop the scenic outlook.
The Lodge has a full basement with entry door located under the deck. The basement becomes very useful
during periods of inclement weather. The electrical power for the lodge is supplied via a new solar system
professionally installed summer 2016. After dark, guests are encouraged to utilize the propane gas lights in
the living area of the Lodge. The ambiance provided by these lights reflecting off the natural pine finish of
the walls creates a unique experience. Some couples have said it has a romantic effect.
If the atmospheric conditions are suitable after dark, outside, you may enjoy viewing the Northern Lights. If
you are a railroad train lover--listen for the 'TRAIN WHISTLE' then go to a location where you can see the
North end of the Lake. A RR trestle runs across the Lake and trains use this track everyday.
Note: While there are great trails for ATVs and ORVs nearby, these vehicles are not permitted on the
