Check In/Out Times:
Telephone, TV and Internet:
19th Century miners did not enjoy the luxury of phone lines, television or internet in their homes. Neither will you. Verizon & AT&T cellular users can get coverage in or near the home. Internet connections are also available at various restaurants in Kearsage, Eagle River, Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor, as well as the Calumet Public Library.
As members of the Keweenaw County Historical Society, the KCHS museums are free for you to visit.
Trash Disposal and Recycling:
During your stay, bagged trash may be placed in metal can behind house but make certain chain is secure, otherwise you will feed raccoons and other critters around Central, which can be a very messy situation.
Please dispose of your trash at the Eagle Harbor Transfer Station located ½ mile up the Eagle Harbor Cut-off Road just outside of town on the right. Tell the person on duty that you are from the Miner’s Home. If the gate is closed, trash can be walked in and thrown into the dumpster. Recycling may only be done when the site is attended. Attended hours of operation are:
If you have an unpaid balance for your rent, please use the envelope provided, enclose your check, and leave it on the kitchen table. Thank you.
