The leaves in the Keweenaw are showing their colors!

One of the best times of the year to visit us is in early fall when the bugs are mostly gone and the trees turn on their autumn colors.

Our historic sites are on or near the Copper Country Trail, a national scenic byway. This route is truly a national gem offering many scenic views, waterfalls, roadside parks, quaint amenities and a glimpse of our unique history.

The Miner's Home still has two weeks rental available in September.
