Reviewed July 23, 2013

My daughter and I enjoyed a pleasant stay at Laurium Manor this past week. The owners have made the restoration and upkeep on this beautiful old home a definite labor of love! Very clean, quiet and comfortable stay. We staying in room 1 and therefore were able to enjoy our own private balcony as well as the very spacious and elegant room itself. Breakfast each morning was amazing. Delicious homemade choices of hot and cold selections. We were full until well into the afternoon each day. This was our second stay in Laurium. We have also stayed in Victorian Inn right across the street which is another lovely old home owned by Julie and Dave. Thanks so much for another relaxing stay. We wanted to stay longer and will plan on that next time around.

Room Tip: Both Laurium Manor and Victorian Inn have unique qualities. Victorina Inn is quieter as it is not on...

In just a few words, this was a great disappointment. We chose to stay at the Laurium Manor Inn because there were good reviews and there are few other high or mid- range options in the area AND it was a holiday weekend and most other places were full.

In my opinion, the property is tired and worn and just barely hanging on because of its past reputation. Those who extoll it's wonderfulness need to look carefully at their surroundings. The house is dark (I understand about being period in the decor but please - turn on at least one light to make it more welcoming! ). Our room, number 7 on the third floor, was sad. There was a huge crack in the ceiling, the sink was a disgrace with very bad stains and chips and a faucet that had been leaking for years leaving a bad water stain, there were wires running all around the room to connect lamps and the huge air conditioner standing on the floor, and the bathroom mirror was fogged by age. This doesn't even begin to address the quality of the bed and bath linens...the bed linens were of the cheapest quality and were gray and mismatched but worse yet were the THREADBARE towels - even when new way too small to be considered bath towels.

This establishment needs a huge influx of cash to make it meet it's potential.

The breakfast was of a very low standard. The two shining lights were hostess Julie at breakfast and the young lady who checked us the night before. I am sorry that I don't know her name. They were excellent.

My husband and I travel all over the world and stay and bed and breakfasts frequently - even all across India where I must say, the standards are far superior to the Laurium Manor Inn.

As I write this, we find ourselves in another bed and breakfast in Michigan. I have learned something. Both of these establishments are run by innkeepers and not the owners. Save yourself some grief and stay in owner run/operated b and b's.

We were in room #6, which was the master bedroom 100 years ago! Large room, firm king bed, claw foot bathtub with jets. The place is large and pretty neat. There are many before and after pictures all through the place. There is a carriage house, a ball room on the 3rd floor, and a very large ice house in the kitchen. Lots of neat rooms, full of history. Breakfast was pretty good as well. The owners and young lady there in the afternoons were very nice as well.

Room Tip: #1 is large with a private balcony.

Stayed in the Calumet room (room #6) which was very large with a king 4 post bed as well as a queen bed. The king bed was firm the way I like it and comfortable. We both slept very well in this quiet neighborhood. This room was particularly good because there were plenty of windows to open for air, a plus because the room isn't air conditioned. The owners have done a beautiful job restoring this historic mansion and the work is still in progress. Friendly and helpful reception by owner Julie, wonderful breakfast the next morning that included some delightful almond-poppyseed pancakes that we're going to try to reproduce when we get back home. If we ever get back to the UP from So. Calif., we would definitely stay here again.

The Laurium Manor Inn is a visit to the Copper Country boom period one hundred years ago.

The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is fantastic and the owners are quite friendly.

It's a very memorable experience.

Room Tip: Stay in the suite that opens on to the front upstairs porch.

It had been a couple years since I had stayed at the Manor, and my brother and I were looking for a place to relax after a stressful period. We stayed over Memorial Weekend for a night, reading, chilling, had dinner at the Michigan House (planked lake trout - YES), and enjoyed a fantastic breakfast of almond, poppy seed pancakes, lemon-lavendar scones, fresh fruit, bacon, toast, orange juice... Julie, the innkeeper made the pancakes and scones from scratch!

We stayed in room #4 (the boy's room) that has a couple of comfy beds, and one of the original bathrooms on the 2nd floor. The bathroom has a claw foot tub / shower and even as a tourch of decor an old commode.

The manor and Victorian Hall are usable pieces of history that if you happen to be in the area and you enjoy special homes, bed and breakfasts in general and fantastic, home cooked breakfasts you can't beat - visit. Tours are also available, but staying there is a special experience.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor rooms are the quietest in the house, but all rooms are special - in both houses. The...

This is one of the most amazing B&B's you will ever experience. A beautiful and carefully restored 13,000 sq. ft. mansion in an historic area. The couple that runs the place are marvelous owners: helpful, friendly, and will go out of their way to tell you everything you need to know about the area. The rooms are huge and stunning in their decor. The breakfast was gourmet.
