We're a young family with 5 children living a simple life in the Keweenaw Peninsula and enjoying all of its natural beauty.

LORI PROPERTY MANAGER purchased this house in 2005


It is a little bit of country close to town.

What makes this house unique

It allows us to enjoy our coffee in the morning sun, barbeques and the boat traffic from the deck, and end our day with a good ole' Copper Country sauna.

Beautiful Home right on the water

  • 5 of 5

Great home. Enough space for everyone in our group and house was stocked with everything we needed. Only downfall was it wasn’t right on the snowmobile trail. We will definitely stay again.

Close to town and very spacious

  • 5 of 5

The sauna, the roominess, and the comfort are a few of the reasons we’ll come back to stay here when we make it to Houghton again. Lori was easy to communicate with.
