About Us - Ed & Lisa Churnetski

We are the cottage owners, Ed & Lisa Churnetski, our home is in East Tennessee. I (Lisa) spent most of my life in Marquette County. I graduated in 1996 from Michigan Tech with an engineering degree which resulted in career opportunities in another state. In 2003, again a career opportunity, I moved to East Tennessee where I meet Ed.

The summer of 2003 I took Ed to Big Bay and he experienced as he said “his first time swimming in the Great Inland Sea, Lake Superior, fulfilling a childhood dream”.


In 2006 the cottage property became available and my Michigan roots and Ed’s love for the Copper Country we decided to become property/business owners in Upper Peninsula of Michigan. 

We are experiencing a transition as we move forward. The cottage is available on a limited basis for the year of 2021.


We continue to make the cottage a place we can escape to for relaxation. We hope you find the cottage comfortable and relaxing, a place you will always remember with fond memories.
