We reserved 2 rooms, and we received the Americana room, and the Bear room. The price was fantastic, and the owners were very nice. They even warned us at check in that if anyone would be scared or uncomfortable with a big bear on the wall, that they should sleep in the Americana room. 😁 The rooms were very clean,... More

We got there kind of early but stopped in to see if we could get a room for two nights. We didn't have reservations so we knew we were taking a chance on a room being available as it was a Saturday. The owners greeted us warmly and got us a room right away. It was the room we hoped... More

Stayed 1 night. Met new owners. Very personable and seem to be service oriented... hoping to maintain standards set by previous owners. So far, so good. Neat, clean, safe, etc. Can't beat value at $58. As advised, shower water temp was tricky. Even had a TIP note posted in bathroom. I turned cold on full blast, then hot and let... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the White House Motel while celebrating our wedding anniversary with a trip to the Keweenaw Peninsula. The previous Trip Advisor reviews, along with the motel's web site, looked interesting, and it was much more reasonably priced compared to other options in the area. The numerous individual touches and attention to detail are what... More

We discovered this place about 3 years ago and love it. Hope to be back there again this summer. I love the themed rooms. Clean and comfy and close to many wonderful places to spend the day. Scones and coffee for breakfast daily too!

After Christmas we were headed to Copper Harbor MI, when we hit a storm. We call around and the sweetest people to respond was Cheri. She was concerned about the storm. We reached White House in around 9:00 pm. Bob and Cheri greeted us and set us up in the Fishing themed room. The room was toasty warm and large... More

I spent a few days at the White House with family over my fortieth birthday. We stayed in three adults, a one year old, and our Yorkies stayed in the Bear Room. We had a great time! It was always clean and the owner-keepers were very helpful. There were a few times the wifi dropped off, but we were too... More

The location was perfect between Calumet and Copper Harbor and the room was immaculate and well maintained. Each room is decorated differently and we choose the bear room complete with a bear skin on the wall. But the best part was getting to meet Bob and Cheri. They go out of their way to make people feel at home and... More
