Saunders Sunrise Cabins
Located on one of nature's wonders, Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay. Two miles north of Paradise, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula, 60 miles north of St. Ignace.
Saunders Sunrise Cabins features six cabins on Whitefish Bay. Five of our cabins are 2 bedroom cabins that measure 20' x 22' and will sleep 4 people comfortably, but will hold up to 5 people. They have a full size bed in each bedroom. Some cabins also have a sofa big enough to sleep on. There is a bathroom with shower between the two bedrooms. The kitchen, dining area, and living room are all on the Bay side with the best view in town.
Everything is furnished for you. . . . towels, linens, pots, pans, and dishes. All you have to bring is your food. Each cabin has a kitchenette furnished with a full size fridge, 2-burner range top, drip coffee maker, toaster, and microwave. Our kitchenettes do not have an oven.
All our cabins have Satellite TV and free Wi-Fi.
We also have a one-room studio style cabin with bath. The cabin measures 14' x 14' and is affectionately known as our honeymoon suite. It sleeps just 2 people and has everything our 2-bedroom cabins have including kitchenette, but with a mini size fridge.
All of our cabins face the water and sit 50 feet from the waters edge, with the most beautiful view of Whitefish Bay, Whitefish Point, and the Canadian Mountains. They all face east so you can't miss the most beautiful sunrise you've ever seen!
Saunders Sunrise Cabins is a small "mom and pop" operation. We live on the premises and are always available to answer any questions or give you directions to all the local attractions. We do not have a maid service to "bug you" once you are settled in. We are located 2 miles north of the town of Paradise so it tends to be quiet and peaceful around here.
Saunders Sunrise Cabins has canoes and kayaks that are free for our guests to use. We have over 460 feet of private sandy beachfront for your enjoyment. Whitefish Bay stays shallow for a good 100 yards so your little ones can enjoy the water. The Bay does warm up to the low 70's in the summer so it is not as cold as "the big lake" Superior.
Each cabin has a picnic table, chairs, and a charcoal grill. There are 3 fire pits down on the beach for a campfire at night while you are watching the stars over the lake. We have firewood for sale at the office.
We have a basketball hoop, horseshoe pit, and a playground style swing set for the kids.
There are many fishing opportunities close by at one of the many small inland lakes or the Tahquamenon River. It is not good fishing in front of the cabins because of the shallow water. There are 2 boat launches close by if you want to bring your own boat.

So come on up and enjoy a breathtaking sunrise in the morning and a campfire on the beach in the evening while you star gaze. We've had many comments on how unbelievable the stars are UP here. If you happen to catch a stormy night, you're still in luck. We've had as many as 12 Great Lakes Freighters waiting for the storm to pass anchor right in front of the cabins.
Looking for Moose? Yes, there are moose in the area. Your hosts can give you direction to the best spots to look for them. Don't forget your camera!
Motorcyclists welcome. Come on UP and take a fall color tour. The sights and smells and smooth roads will be something you will never forget. We can give you direction to the best places to see and ride. Indoor parking is available.
