    The wife and I would like to rent a vacation cabin/condo in the UP of Michigan next summer for a few weeks. Someplace close to some trap clubs, restaurants, lake fishing, boat rentals and a lake or beach area. Any of you guys have any suggestions?

    Try near;

    Escanaba

    Marquette

    Sault St. Marie

    Those are the three biggest cities in the UP. I don't know about Trap Clubs but the fishing and scenery is awsome.

    Check out the web site for Ottawa sportsmans club in Pelkie. That is in a beautiful area near a nice casino. That whole area once you get to Marquette and west is nice for the things that you mentioned. Bill

    Send BillGrill a pm. He lives close and can help you. I spent a lot of time around Traverse City at my folks cabin but it has been too many years ago. It is probably in my opinion the most beautiful area ever.

    Torch Lake just north of Traverse is wonderful or at least it used to be. The north end of Torch at Eastport at least used to be the prettiest water on the planet imo.

    The western UP is the prettiest part, lots to see there. Water falls, Lake in the Clouds, Porcupine Mountains....etc. There's a real nice club just accross the border in Land O' Lakes Wisconsin called the Gateway Lodge. One of the most beautiful clubs I've ever been to!

    I live in the beautiful U.P. of Michigan. I would recommend the Marquette area. Beautiful scenery, good restaurants, great fishing. Trap, and skeet shooting at the Negaunee Rod and Gun Club, 7mi. west of Marquette. Anywhere along the Lake Superior shore, is scenery that's hard to beat......Dave Strom

    CubianCigar, I was in the UP, in the DEAD of winter, for cold weather survival training while in the military. OMG! The only part of God's country was hoping God wasn't gonna let you freeze. God Bless all UP dwellers.....human & animal

    I'd tell you to go to Hell, but it's too far south.

    And not surprising that Paradise is far north!
