HARBOR PINES IN EAGLE HARBOR
*RENT 1 CABIN OR ALL 4 TOGETHER
Harbor Pines- In honor of the wonderful pines in the area and the glorious breeze that comes in off of Lake Superior which, along with the Light House, are right out the back door!
This is a one bedroom that has two twin beds. Harbor Pines also has a bathroom with a single shower, a small kitchen area that includes ONLY a mini-fridge, a microwave and a coffee pot.
A message from the owners:
“At the turn of the century, our great-grandparents emigrated from Scandinavia and settled in the Keweenaw Peninsula not only building a new life for themselves but literally building many of the churches, schools, stores and homes in the area. Of course many childhood memories include swimming in Lake Superior, picking thimble berries, grilling fresh-caught fish and watching for bears and wildlife in this magical place.
We fell in love with these 4 cottages because they belonged to the original Lake Breeze Resort in Eagle Harbor. Built in the 20's, this resort had 15 cottages that sat on “The Hill” overlooking the harbor. As time went on, some of the cottages were sold and we now find ourselves lucky enough to own four.
