The home has everything you need, including a second toilet in the basement. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds comfortable. As it was early October and chilly, the gas fireplace in the living room was warm and cheerful. The location was great split between Copper Harbor and Tech. We spent a fair amount of time in each location and as I remember it, they are each about a 20 minute drive. The owners were very responsive to calls and emails, and without question I will stay here again if I can. Brian I
The Keweenaw peninsula is gorgeous; Brockway Mountain Drive is not to be missed; Houghton has a wonderful Mineral Museum and is an attractive city. There are lovely homes and mansions left over from the mining and lumbering days. The best meal we had was at Fitzgerald's in Eagle River, where the dining room is right on Lake Superior. All in all we had a wonderful trip and were happy to return to this house. Highly recommend it! Margo C
We are Jerry and Nancy Rabe. (Jerry is from Lower Michigan, Nancy is from Ironwood, MI). We love the Keweenaw area and think it will capture your heart too! In 2006, our dream of having a place on Lake Superior became a reality. The location and beautiful setting will provide vacation memories for a lifetime. One of our favorite things to do is sit on the beach and watch the sunset - a close second is falling asleep to the sound of the waves. We’ll share our secret spots too. We trust our guests with our dream home, and ask that they treat it gently, as if it were their own.
