Elemental Resort, formally known as the "Queens Cottages" was established in the 1960s. These comforting cabins have been newly renovated with a unique sense of rustic modern, while still retaining that outdoorsman spirit. Resting on the shores of a spring fed lake, Big Shag lake ( 194 acres in size), you can gaze at the many, many beauties resting here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  With our provided boats, you can easily catch yourself out on the water all day, or choose to relax on the shore with a campfire with good friends and good food. Being 25 minutes from downtown Marquette, 15 minutes from Sawyer International Airport and 10 minutes from the central town of Gwinn, you are conveniently located in a special area deep within the heart of the woods. Make a lifetime of memories by coming to the Elemental Resort. Come and see a side of the world you will never forget.
