This is a very nice place to stay. Very nice hosts. They stayed up late to check me in and even left my porch light on for me if I was on The trail late at night. I definitely give this place 2 thumbs up.... I will definitely be back when I ride the south western part of the yooper.... More

The cabins were very quiet and easy to access Lake Superior. The cabins are a little small if you have a larger group, but we loved having use of a kitchen and all the dishes provided. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming. Overall we highly enjoyed our stay.

The cabins are cute, albeit a bit dated, but serve their function. We stayed in #8 in August and it worked just fine for us - the place was nice enough and was a good respite after over a week of camping. The bed was comfortable and it was nice to have a little couch, TV, and kitchen available to... More

Peace, quiet, privacy and the sandy shore of Lake Superior with a grand view of beautiful sunsets over the Porcupine Mountains! Comfortable cabins that have all the amenities: Kitchens, cable TV, showers and some have fireplaces. My wife and I have been staying at Peterson's Cottages every Autumn since 1988. Actually since before they took over ownership. They've made many... More

We were looking for a place to possibly view the northern lights. The owner told us there were not outdoor lights. Wrong. Lots of bright outdoor lighting, the cabin was clean, but old and FULL of ridiculous, crabby signs about what to do and how to behave. 10:00 am (9:00 am central time) checkout with $20 per hour late fee,...

My grandma and I stayed here during our UP trip to copper harbor. We came across it because there was no vancacy anywhere else. The owner was very pleasant and helpful, we only stayed one night. Clean, loved the lake access, very pretty spot. Has everything you would need in the cabins.

This place was supposed to be just an overnight stay but ended up becoming the highlight of our trip. We put up campfire, partied on the beach till late :) Great service, very helpful owners. Worth every penny. Highly recommended!

Wendy and Chuck (the owners) are great, very helpful and kind. The cottage (Nakomis) was beautiful, very clean and spacious, and was nicely secluded from the other cabins. Being in the middle of the woods, right by the shores of lake superior, was amazing. The only issues we had were 1) the water smelled of copper and 2) the cottage... More

clean quiet cottages, very close to private beach. Chuck ans Wendy were very helpful and friendly. They would answer all phone calls with in few minutes. Our 11 year old kids enjoyed tubing on lake superior beach and bonfire. I would recommend the cottages to families with kids.
