Escape the ordinary vacation. Relax or be adventurous. Fish your heart out! Take a break from technology. This historic (1800s), 3 bedroom, cedar log cabin is nestled within a 2 acre rustic private island on the Michigamme River.

Electricity, running water, a land-line phone and now new wi-fi internet are some of the creature comforts on this rustic island. Enjoy the wildflowers and wilderness. Rustic Decor throughout. High beam ceilings. Kitchen, breakfast bar, bathroom with shower, plus a gorgeous natural wood-burning cobblestone fireplace warms the living room. TV (2 channels)/VCR/DVD. Linens provided.

An open mind and flexibility are keys to fun here. The island is only Water-access only. Be your own captain! A Jon boat (best in low water), pontoon (best in high water) with electric motor, canoe, aluminum boat, and a paddle boat for 2 are all provided for your sole use during your stay.

Off-street and alongside road parking. Republic Island is the home of excellent fishing, bird watching (a bald eagle nests nearby), and canoeing.

Requirements for Island: You are able-bodied enough to be able to drive/row the boat/canoe, if needed. Plus you should have decent agility to walk up and down the uneven walkways. A positive, flexible attitude is essential for a good experience. As a Special Education teacher by trade, I wish we could find a way to accommodate all abilities in the Republic Island experience. While you do not need to be an athlete, at least an average level of agility is definitely required in order to have a positive experience for you and your family.

Additional Pet Information:

We currently charge a $25 flat fee per pet. We do accept dogs, yet we do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin. Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on. Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we’ll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the Island with all the water and places to explore. Their food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.

The Island Experience: The Island is very quiet. There are many times you can hear silence. The peaceful Michagamme River surrounds you. An American Bald Eagle has nested and flies near the Island. If you are interested in the Island, you need to keep in mind that you are actually in the wilderness. Nature abounds, creatures great and small are part of your experience.

Yes, there are animals on the island. This is not Disney World. We have seen snakes (non-poisonous), raccoon, skunks, mice and squirrels, to name a few. Deer, moose and bear have not been known to come directly onto the island, yet it would be possible, if they wanted to swim. If you are uncomfortable being so close and surrounded by real nature, then we have other properties where you may be more comfortable.
