LOCAL ATTRACTIONS:

Copper Harbor Attractions:
Copper Harbor is a town that is a short 14 miles away from the cottages. In Copper Harbor you can find some very unique places that are a must see while you are in town!

The Brick House- This is a microbrewery where you can find all of the finest craft beers in the area!
The Haus- Authentic German food that you must try!
The Bakery- Freshly baked goods are produced here every day.
The General Store- Across the street from dining is where you will find an old fashioned general store that has a gas station as well.
State Campground- Historical sightings where Indians once were.

Eagle Harbor Attractions:
Eagle Harbor Restaurant- Come to this very delicious restaurant where you will find the freshest fish and the coldest craft beers!

Gift Shop- “The Gem Store” is the perfect gift shop, especially for anyone who is a rock hound.

Great Sand Bay- Similar to the Traverse City “Sleeping Bear Dunes”, you will get this feel here! Just a short 3 miles away.

Lighthouse- The lighthouse is just a two minute walk! There is a historical museum and a gift shop that also provides a huge observation deck where you go up the steps to sit and watch the freighters go by.

Playground- In the middle of the village, there was an old fire station turned into a huge playground for kids with picnic tables and grills.

Houghton Attractions:
Houghton is a short 30 minute drive and there is an airport in the area where you are able to rent a car. This city is on your way up to Eagle Harbor and is where we suggest buying your groceries and anything you may need for the property! There are also gas stations here as well.

Michigan Technological University (MTU): Just 30 Minutes south of the Eagle Harbor Cottages. These cottages are an ideal way to give your student space while you enjoy the gorgeous Keweenaw Peninsula!

The space
These Eagle Harbor Cottages near the lighthouse in Eagle Harbor were formerly a part of a former resort. They have been fully renovated. We currently rent 2 of the cottages which have the best view of Lake Superior and are closest to the road leading to the lighthouse and the lighthouse itself. The spacing is tight. The washer/dryer is shared by the 2 cottages.
