Reviewed 19 October 2015

The location was perfect between Calumet and Copper Harbor and the room was immaculate and well maintained. Each room is decorated differently and we choose the bear room complete with a bear skin on the wall. But the best part was getting to meet Bob and Cheri. They go out of their way to make people feel at home and...

Thank you so much Tamara for your kind comments, we strive to offer value for money here and not just in accommodating our guests but by informing guests of the Keweenaw's many attractions and places of interest. We tried for quite a while after purchasing the motel to find a good quality bear skin for our bear themed room and...

This is a great Mom and Pop motel. The rooms were older but very clean, comfortable, and quiet. Plenty of amenities in the room but no AC (but it was not needed and they did provide a fan in the room.) The owners are a hoot and provided a lot of information about local sites, restaurants, and things to do....

Great owners! Great personal touch to the place. Wifi is fast. You can have a little fire out front and enjoy a relaxing evening. They have Coke products you can purchase. Also every morning there is fresh coffee and house made scones by the owner. The only complaint I have is the bed is not so comfy for me, but...

My wife and I have stayed here several times now, and it is always the same - cozy, comfortable, great value, and great people. The rooms are not huge, but neither are they cramped.
