10 AirBnb Home Rentals For Your Upper Peninsula Elopement near Marquette, Michigan
One of my favorite parts about helping couples plan their dream elopement is sending over lodging ideas. Of course nobody HAS to book the places I send over! But helping to find beautiful places to host couples for such an incredible event is always such an honor. It's also no surprise that photographing Marquette elopements is one of my favorites, so I wanted to make this post as a little resource for those of you looking for a beautiful place!
So many couples are realizing that eloping doesn't always have to mean running off to a stale courthouse. Eloping is about creating a day about doing what you love, whether that's spending the day with just the two of you, some close family or friends, surrounded by nature, going for a boat ride - you name it!
And that's where these AirBnbs for your upper peninsula elopement kick in. You can find a beautiful place to stay for just you, or if you are thinking of having a small wedding in Marquette you can host the event! I've pulled together some of the most beautiful & scenic Marquette area AirBnbs for you to check out that would be perfect for your elopement or if you just want somewhere beautiful for you to stay at during your experience. I hope you find one you love!

"Nestled in the heart of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan the Lodge overlooks Juncob Lake and features a large great room anchored by stone fireplaces, three bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen and wifi internet access. Enjoy 600 acres of private land with 10 miles of private hiking and groomed ski trails. Whether you enjoy hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hunting, skiing, snowmobiling or simply relaxing on a dock your favorite outdoor pursuit is right outside the door. At the end of the day relax with a sauna or take a dip in the Lake."
These cabins are perfect for hosting intimate weddings & gatherings! You have so much privacy and natural beauty right around you here.
I've also photographed a wedding here before, which you can see some photos of here!
I know these two haven't been the CLOSEST to Marquette, but how could I leave this one out?! If you've followed me for awhile this AirBnB might look familiar to you, and it's one that's very special to me because it's where my partner Todd and I got married last July!! It's crazy that that already feels like a lifetime ago, and I still really need to share my own photos of that day (until then you can see some photos from my amazing & incredibly talented friend/photographer Danielle Aisling here). It's the perfect spot to host your own intimate wedding with your friends or family, or to just have a beautiful place to stay!
"Newly remodeled! Come and watch the sunset over the lake each night from both the main living and huge walkout basement! Master and guest room upstairs both ensure bathrooms and guest and bath downstairs offer lots of sleeping space and privacy. Large sauna and jetted tub/foosball also to play/relax in the basement. Dock, kayaks, swim and shallow entry make it a perfect house for families with kids- not to mention the newly redesigned playhouse! 2 new 2 seat jet skis available for rent as well!"
Who doesn't love an A-frame cabin?! Especially one that has some beautiful, woodsy views AND a private beach!? This might be one of the best AirBnB gems out there. It's a very cozy, quaint cabin perfect if you're looking for something simple. It's also only a few minute drive from the heart of Marquette!
"Situated on a bluff overlooking mighty Lake Superior, this unique and stylishly decorated home offers opportunity to gaze at the city lights of Marquette, catch the Northern Lights or walk for miles on the beach. Explore the wild UP with the comforts of the city nearby & a soft place to land each night."
This AirBnb is in the heart of downtown Marquette, in an incredible location right above the Zephyr wine bar! It's a super spacious loft with tons of beautiful natural light, which makes it an incredible spot to have as a hub to get ready in and stay in for your upper peninsula elopement experience! One of the weddings I photographed chose to get ready here before their wedding at the Lake Superior Theatre, you can see some photos of it on my blog post here!
"An historic building with amazing views of the Lower Harbor in downtown Marquette. One and a half flights up to an expansive 1900 sq foot living space that comfortably sleeps 9."
In case my all-caps didn't alert you, this home is one of my FAVORITES that I found! Not only is it on a private beachfront which would be amazing for an intimate wedding, but the entire interior is also absolutely gorgeous. A beautiful deck, sauna, and TONS of natural light - I am just dreaming of all the wedding possibilities here!
"Beautiful home situated on a sandy beach between Shot Point and Laughing Whitefish Point. The beach is so private you will be hard pressed to see another person during your stay! A short drive from downtown Marquette (10 miles) and a quick trip to Munising (just down M28). Enjoy grilling on the deck, traditional Finnish sauna followed by a cool dip or paddle on the lake. Gourmet kitchen to cook a fabulous meal in, upscale appliances and bells and whistles to enjoy! Cozy up with a book in the sunroom, comfy beds or outdoor furniture. Large, sunny bedrooms with breathtaking lake views, fresh air and plenty of space."
Another house on the beautiful Lake Michigamme, this home would be amazing for a little post-elopement mini reception or afterparty. I can already picture the bonfires, sunset boat rides, late-night swimming, and partying on this amazing lakeside deck.
"Enjoy a serene lake house experience on one of the Upper Peninsula’s largest inland lakes. Lake Michigamme is 4300 acres of water. Fish off the dock, watch the sunset, or lounge on one of several deck spaces. Full kitchen and grill available to fry up your catch! Rest and relax in our unplugged home. Wildlife neighbors include - deer, flying squirrels, bear, chipmunks, & eagles. 35 miles from Marquette!"
This is another favorite of mine because of its floor-to-cieling windows and its unique design! The interior of this home is also beautiful, with lots of wood and minimalist furniture. It's a beautiful, private home with lakefront access (and a really cool rocky beach I might add)!
"Built in 1974, this rustic and architecturally unique cabin is an all wood modified A-Frame nestled in the woods of the Upper Peninsula. Floor to ceiling windows and a lofted second floor allow natural light and gorgeous views of Lake Superior. Enjoy our sandstone swimming hole in the summer, or the cast iron wood stove in the winter. Located 20 minutes from Marquette and 30 minutes from Munising, our home offers a quiet place to relax and feel close to nature."
This is another one that immediately made me DREAM of all the possibilities. The house itself has the most beautiful windows, a gorgeous kitchen, and more. And not only does it have lake views - it has THE lake views - aka a clear view right to Little Presque!!! And a private beach and trails!??! Need I say more!?!?
"Quiet, isolated oasis on 300 feet of Lake Superior beach, trout pond, and 10 wooded acres. This enchanted location is only 5 miles from downtown Marquette with easy access to Northern Michigan University, numerous restaurants, shops, hiking & biking trails, and regional events. *Please note*… We offer two different lodging experiences on this property. The main home and the apartment above the detached garage. For larger family events, rent both."
This home is absolutely stunning, and offers beautiful views of water, woods, and of course is super private! Imagine spending your wedding morning having coffee with your partner on a deck with a view like that? What a dream!
"The lodge is a gorgeous log cabin on the a west shore of AuTrain Lake. It has great snowmobile trail access and parking! It’s only 2.5 miles from Lake Superior and 12 miles West of Munising and the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. This lodge offers a prestige private setting with all the amenities of home! The lodge offers 3 bedroom, 3 full bathroom with a new jacuzzi tub in the basement and pool table!"
This house is beautiful and spacious, and is right on Lake Superior so offers an insanely beautiful beach as well! It's only a few minutes away from downtown Marquette as well, so it would be the perfect hub for a post-elopement party after you've explored the Black Rocks or Sugarloaf Mountain, or to even have your elopement at!
