About LORI PROPERTY MANAGER

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

Why LORI PROPERTY MANAGER chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

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.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

House is very clean and well stocked. Plenty of room inside and out. Large deck with great view of canal. Dock was wonderful too! Group of 9 had no problems finding space.

Lovely, beautiful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Rocky Shores is great. The house itself is clean, roomy, open, airy, welcoming. There is a dock from which to swim or fish or park a boat. The dock is even configured in such a way that there is a small 'kiddie pool' - nice and shallow for the little ones. The large lawn is great for frisbee or tag with a fire pit for night time s'mores. Hosts were friendly and accommodating & available for help if needed - we locked ourselves out once. It is a perfect place for gathering, relaxing, reading - vacationing!

Awesome Family Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to celebrate an MTU Graduation and a couple of Birthdays, one being an 80th. We were surprised also by an Engagement. We had 10 people gathering, and the space was awesome. All were comfortable and we enjoyed the welcoming environment. Access to the Portage was a plus, and even though it was Spring, the owners made certain their dock was installed for our boat. Will definitely return again...

Great Winter Escape

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. You can stay inside and enjoy the incredible view or use it as a base camp for all to do in the Keweenaw - snow shoe, snowmobile, historical tour. Close to everything, but far enough from town to be secluded.

We had a wonderful time staying in the Rocky Shores Retreat! A beautiful site!

  • 5 of 5

All was great-we loved the sauna, the kitchen was well stocked for meal prep and a relaxing atmosphere. Thanks Lori and Phil for keeping the driveway plowed and we had easy access to the local snowmobile trails.
