I stayed in the smallest of the cabins, but it was plenty of space - the living room was quite comfortable, and I slept well in the lovely bed. The beach was a short walk down a beautiful path. All in all, a wonderful slice of Upper Peninsula Heaven!

My husband and I had an amazing time at the Peterson's Chalet Cottages. We walked along Lake Superior, had a beach fire with a family, hiked at Porcupine Mountains, grilled out at the cottage, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery in the area. I highly recommend others to visit Ontonagon, MI and stay at the Peterson's Chalet Cottages. We will be... More

Stayed at Peterson's due to all other accommodations in Houghton MI (40 miles away) being full because of Michigan Tech graduation. Cute cabin and clean, clean, clean. The beach was nice and experienced a beautiful sunset. Wendy and Chuck were extremely hospitable. We have relatives in the area and would stay there again even though it meant a little more... More

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,...
