“Outstanding”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

My husband and I went on a longish camping trip and had decided to stay one night in hotel just so we could shower and reorganize. I had the reservation in advance as I had stayed there some years back but he had never been to the lodge or the western U.P before.
We had gotten to Copper Harbor a little to check in so we decided to see the town first. My husband immediately loved the area and we decided we'd stay at the tip of the peninsula an extra night in our tent.
When we got to the lodge and got into our cabin, with it's own wood burning fire place (wood provided, as well as kindling) we turned right around a booked another night in the lodge!
Great services, friendly people, amazing vistas. what's not to love!

We traveled to Copper Harbor MI and stayed at Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, reserving a "rustic cabin", which looked quaint and cozy on the website. The cabins are split in duplex style. I was advised the cabins had just been renovated and redecorated. Our cabin appeared to have a relatively new loveseat and chair, but the rest of the furnishings looked as though they came from a garage sale or second hand store specializing in old junk. The bed was the worst I have ever slept in and the bathroom was a wreck. I originally reserved two nights, but immediately called the front desk to cancel the second. The round of golf was phenomenal, which made the overnight stay at least tolerable. Continental breakfast was forgettable, but the main lodge itself was very nice.

Room Tip: We didn't check out the motel rooms off the main lodge, which might be an idea if we ever return...

This is truly a Inn that has all the charm of early mountain vacation grand days with modern necessities included. We had a charming cabin, fireplace, clean room, clean bathroom, plenty of heat on a frosty evening. The dining room is perfect atmosphere for the mountain "resort", food good, charming bar/lounge, professional staff. We wished we had stayed longer, very charming place. The scenery around the golf course is stunning, great place to walk and explore.

Room Tip: The cabins are very cozy

Located about as far north in Michigan as you can go, the lodge was built in the 1930's by the WPA. There are about a dozen cabins, one, two or three bedroom, each with a fireplace and living room. Plenty of room to relax with friends and family. There are also a few motel type rooms. No kitchen facilities, but the restaurant at the lodge is outstanding. There are several other restaurants nearby as well. The lodge is just a few miles from Lake Superior. The scenery is awesome. There is also a 9 - hole golf course on the grounds.
We were there for our son's wedding, and were simply blown away by the service that the staff provided. Couple this with the scenery, and it was a fantastic day for the young couple.

Room Tip: Cabins are definitely more spacious than the motel rooms. There is no refrigerator, but you can get...

I've stayed at the KML a number of times the past 30 years – and was happy to see, it hasn't changed much (except for the new banquet facility – which blends in perfectly with the old lodge). This time all the cabins were booked so we took a motel room. It was old – in need of redecorating and some updates – but we loved it anyway. Sure – it would have been nice to have new beds, beautiful duvets, an updated bath, something other than dark paneling and brown floral wallpaper on the walls – but then, it wouldn't be the same Keweenaw Mountain Lodge you come to expect in this rustic town at the very northern tip of Michigan. Nothing in Copper Harbor is high-tech or fancy – and the KML isn't any different. However – there was wi-fi – a new addition – and something we were able to receive in the motel room. However, no cell phone service – for my phone anyway. I considered this a good thing. Also, no air conditioning. We may have used it since it was warm while we were there, but did have cross ventilation and a fan, at the top of the vaulted ceiling. We were comfortable.

We didn't take advantage of the free continental breakfast as we opted for the hot breakfast buffet for $8.50 per person. A lot of nice options on this buffet – including quiches, bread pudding, pancakes, oatmeal, eggs, bacon, juices, and fresh fruit. We also ate dinner there the night before and it was terrific. I'll review it separately.

Overall, if you're looking for brand new, modern, high tech, luxury – don't come here. This is rustic, outdated, woodsy, and wonderful. I will admit it was a bit of an adjustment coming from a brand new hotel in Marquette, but the charm took over quickly. The staff was very friendly as well.

Room Tip: The cabins are rustic and cozy - but the bath/sink area is quite a bit bigger in the motel unti.

Showed up in Copper Harobor without reservations..stupid us. A wonderful desk clerk called around and found us 5 cabins at Keweenaw Mountain Lodge. Cabins are rustic and the bedroom furniture and bathroom desperately need updating but we loved it anyway.
Had a 1 bedroom cabin...nice sitting area with satellite TV, a double bed and basic bathroom.
Beautiful location and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating.
Restaurant was extremely good...not a grumble from staff when 10 of us showed for dinner at 845PM and the kitchen closed at 9PM.
I would go back any time!! Must be wonderful in winter with wood burning fireplace in private cabin with great view!

Room Tip: If you have a difficult time walking, ask for a cabin close to the lodge. It is hilly!

There's really nothing wrong with this place, it's just nothing great; however, there probably aren't many other options any better. We heard about it from the Wall Street Journal, as did some other travelers. I think we were all a little let down, so perhaps my comments may help prepare others. We stayed 2 nights in a 1 BR (duplex) cabin with a fireplace. I guess the cabins have been upgraded because there are now gas fireplaces you just turn on with a switch. It's easier, but also not very charming. The direct TV produced many channels, all with rolling horizontal lines - not sure if this is the norm, or just our cabin, but we couldn't fix it. It's not why you're there, but, you still want to be able to catch the news. WiFi is in the lodge bar ONLY, not even in the dining room. The bar truly was the highlight for us. Our bartender is a local and she was delightful. The continental breakfast (included in room rate) was pitiful - small muffins of some sort, whole pieces of fruit, a bowl of flavorless cut-up fruit, and cookies! Dinners were actually quite good, especially the fish dishes. Again, not really wrong, just nothing great. Go for a nice long walk, drive to the 'town' (population 80-90 year round), beautiful scenery, nice hikes on the Point.
