COPPER MOOSE COTTAGE on Lake Michigamme:  Newly redecorated! Waterfront, Firepit, Kayaks, WiFi






BEDROOMS:  3 (plus Daybed & Trundle and Bunkbed)
* LAKEFRONT (Lake Michigamme)

* 6 KAYAKS INCLUDED (5 Adult & 1 Child Sit-Upon). They are available Memorial Day through Labor Day
* PRIVATE DOCK (Inquire about docking your own watercraft as water depth levels may vary)
* Wi-Fi
* 3 TVs with ROKU
* SWIM RAFT thru Labor Day


This spacious, turn of the century lakefront cottage does not lose its original charm playing host to modern amenities. With almost 100' of waterfront on Lake Michigamme, Copper Moose Cottage is an ideal family vacation home. Swim off the dock, jump off the swim raft, fish or tour around Lake Michigamme using the provided kayaks, or play one of the many provided yard games on the spacious waterfront lawn. If it's a day to relax inside, the large rear cottage windows offer a panoramic view of the amazing lawn, gardens, and lake. Copper Moose Cottage is just a short convenient walk to a nice park and playground, Crock and Rocker Boutique, a museum, a village library, and many community activities. 

All three bedrooms, the laundry room, and the half bath can be found on the upper level of the home. On the main floor, you can gather OR spread out in the well-appointed kitchen, the lake room seating and dining areas, near the fireplace, or in the family room with television and reading nook. The full bathroom, front den, the mud room, and a recreation room are also found on the main level. When not enjoying the great outdoors, check out the great indoors!  The rec room features a pool table that easily converts to play ping-pong, or challenge someone to a game on the electronic dart board.  Newly added arcade game with 14 games to challenge friends and family as well! Guests can also take advantage of the many family-friendly board games, books, and DVD's.

Just steps out the back door you'll find ample seating and comfortable lounge chairs. Gather around the fire pit to chat or roast marshmallows. Cook meals on the propane grill. The perennial gardens allow you to enjoy fresh cut flowers during your stay and also create a beautiful backdrop to this historic home. It's no surprise that this home once featured a bustling flower shop!

While you enjoy the modern conveniences here such as Wi-Fi, propane fireplace, and Roku TV's, please be aware this almost 120-year-old home comes with slightly slanted floors and crooked doorways. We feel these only enhance the character and charm of the cottage and in no way take anything away from your guest experience.  Think quaint and comfortably livable!

Perfect Vacation Rental
Absolutely loved the location and home. It had everything we needed and stuff we didn't think we would need. The home was super clean and the extras like laundry and water/outdoor toys was awesome. It really alleviated our packing list. Our kids loved the quietness and seclusion from the cities. We loved taking pictures around the garden and sitting by the fire. It was also the perfect location to make day trips to other areas like Copper Harbor and Marquette. We have already recommended the rental to friends and family looking for a quiet and carefree getaway.

Christina, thank you for recommending Copper Moose Cottage to your friends!  That's great!  We're glad that your had such a fine time for your getaway.  It sounds like you really took advantage of the best of summer, and we hope that you come back again for some more fun.

Incredible and everything you ever need to relax!
We stayed even an extra day! The house was prefect with three bedrooms and extra cozy places. Our little family enjoyed the lake three times a day even! We have the best last days of summer!


We're so happy to know you and your family enjoyed your stay, Tashina! It's great to know that the home was able to work so well for your needs, and that it was even worth the additional night! Hopefully we can have you back in the future!
Aug 2023
Thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful home! You truly though of everything and made our stay an amazing experience! The home was warm and welcoming and there was plenty of room for our whole group. We loved exploring the surrounding areas- Houghton, Copper Harbor, Marquette, Eagle Harbor, L'Anse, The Adventure Mine, Canyon Falls (these were a real highlight) and hiking Hogback Mountain! This is truly a beautiful place! Thank you!

This place is perfect. We've stayed in many different places but this is one of the nicest! Thank you!

Little Slice of Heaven
Your cottage was amazing! It had everything we could need during our stay. It was a perfect place for our little family vacation. We've enjoyed all the sights and have been very lucky the weather was in our favor. This was a little slice of heaven. Thank you!

We had a wonderful time during our stay here! We loved and enjoyed everything the house had to offer! Beautiful house and yard :)

Illinois Family of 5
We loved the cabin and the lake. Enjoyed exploring the area. Hope to visit again! :)
Nov 2022
Your cottage was just perfect for our family- the house had anything and everything we could possibly need. We haven't slept with windows open in forever and the home stays nice and cool even at the end of July. The gardens and lake area were awesome- We got dinner and lunch from Moose Drop and went to Friday fry at Mt. Shasta. This was a great location for us to do a day trip to the Porkies and a day trip through the Keweenaw Peninsula. Thank you for sharing your cozy home- we loved it!
Nov 2022
Such great memories!
What a beautiful place to spend a week! The toddlers lived in the water all week and we had a wonderful fresh caught rock bass dinner from the lake. We loved being able to cut flowers from the charming garden to adorn our table all week. So many details were thought of. We really appreciated how kid friendly everything was. Our families made such great memories!
Nov 2022
A little piece of heaven! Up from Houston, we loved your cottage, gardens, cool breezes, scenic panoramas and lake. Perfect weather for our stay. Loved Moose Drop Inn pizza and triple choc. cheesecake and Crock & Rockers for shopping! You thought of everything! See you next year :)
Nov 2022
We 3 sisters from Rockford, IL & Omaha, NE, enjoyed our stay at CMC. You equipped the cottage with everything we needed, and the cottage handled the 90-100 degree days surprisingly well. Finally, the mosquito nets were an absolute godsend!

Beautiful relaxing cottage!!!
The cottage has everything. Lake front, plenty of room and it’s all in great shape. And it’s really quiet. We only spent two days……but wished we could stay longer. And the freshwater people are the best. Always available to answer questions and very easy to work with. If they had a 10 star rating I would have given it !! 


Thank you for the wonderful review Pete! We are so grateful to know that you had a great stay, found the house to be in great shape, and especially appreciate to the kudos to our team at Freshwater! We can't wait to host another stay with you! 
Sep 2022
perfect for family fun
Our family of 5 enjoyed everything the cozy cottage and lake had to offer. We used the game room, grill, fire pit and kayaks. We drove to Marquette one day and enjoyed exploring that area. Black rocks was awesome!


Thank you for taking the time to share your review Joanna! We are so happy to know that you and your family were able to enjoy your stay on the lake, as well as the great amenities the home has to offer! It truly is a great area to get some exploring in, so it is good to know you got to explore Marquette and Black Rocks! We'd love to have you back!
Aug 2022
Perfect location, spacious and cozy with all the amenities!
We loved our stay at Copper Moose Cottage, it was very clean, full of charm, beautiful gardens, amazing lake and perfect location for us to come back to and relax after long days of exploring. Easy access to Houghton and all that Keewenaw Peninsula has to offer. We also took a day trip to the Porcupine Mountains and it was an easy drive. We loved the food at Mt. Shasta and Moose Drop Inn. The Inn, Museum and adorable (and huge) shop (Crock and Rocker) were walking distance from house. Even without AC the house stayed cool with fans even in 85 degree days. Highly recommend this place! Also our daughter left a textbook behind and Freshwater Properties we’re very helpful in locating it and having it shipped to our home. 


Thank you for such a wonderful review Erin! Charm is such a good word to describe this home, so we truly appreciate knowing you found it to be clean and able to live up to the charm photos can only suggest. The fact that you were able to explore such great parts of the UP is really such an added bonus, as well as the fact that we were able to get your daughter's textbook back in a timely fashion! Hopefully we get a chance to host you again if and when you return to the area!
Aug 2022
A lovely place to get-away
The Copper Moose Cottage offered a perfect base to explore local waterfalls and to take a trip up the Keweenaw Peninsula. We were able to kayak multiple times each day and enjoyed swimming from and hanging out on the dock. The garden was even more beautiful in person! The cottage had everything you would need for a long-and-short vacation. We were really impressed and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place in the UP. And if you go, make sure to get some pizza from the Moose Drop Inn. The sourdough crust was delicious!


Thank you for such a wonderful review, Jennifer! It's great to know that you enjoyed your stay in the area, as well as all of the beautiful features the home has to offer, such as the garden, kayaks, and easy access to swimming. We also appreciate the shout out to Moose Drop! Hopefully we get a chance to host you again!

The perfect place to visit with family and friends
We had a wonderful stay at the Copper Moose. It was the perfect place to visit with family and friends. We love Lake Michigamme and felt right at home here. We sold our "Blue Snowshoe" camp on the lake a few years ago. It was very nice to spend time on the lake again. Thank you for your hospitality!
Feb 2022
Beautiful home, absolutely perfect!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, it was absolutely perfect! We caught our limit of walleye, enjoyed swimming & the raft, having campfires, playing games, and just relaxing. The wings at Moose Drop Inn were awesome- pizza was good too. The gentleman at the museum here was great- we recommend checking it out! Mini ping pong and pool was way more fun than anticipated! :) We appreciate the attention to detail and how well appointed the cottage is. It made our stay so easy and fun.
Feb 2022
Very clean and well stocked
Very impressed with cleanliness and how well stocked house was. Enjoy house very much, comfortable and cozy. Adorable. Enjoyed fire pit, everything about our stay. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay here.
Feb 2022
Many wonderful vacation memories made here
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the cottage. It is a lovely home, clean & well kept, with all the perfect touches for a carefree stay! The rec room was fun for all of us, as well as kayaking on the lake and enjoying the beautiful view of the yard & gardens. We day tripped to Canyon Falls, Presque Isle & Marquette and loved Pina from the Moose Drop Inn and pasties from Lawry's! Many wonderful vacation memories made here for us- thank you!
Feb 2022
A slice of Pure Michigan
What a wonderful find! We needed a place for our extended family to stay for a family reunion weekend and couldn't have asked for a better situation. The rooms are cozy, the gathering spaces large, the game room kept the kids entertained and the lake was so beautiful. Thank you for sharing this slice of "Pure Michigan."
Feb 2022
The most wonderful get away!
Thank you for sharing your home. We had the most wonderful get away! From morning swims & afternoons on the kayak, followed by bbq- it could not have been better. We enjoyed a day at Pictured Rock and got the chance to explore Marquette. We hope to return soon! Many thanks!
Feb 2022
Everything we could have wanted and more!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us! Our only regret is that our trip was too busy and we didn't get to stay "home" as much as we wanted to!! The cottage had everything we could have wanted and more!! Loved the beautiful flower gardens and seeing the birds (especially hummingbirds)! Will definitely be back, but next time with lots of "Home" time in our plans!! Thank you!!
Feb 2022
A great place to make memories with family
Our family really enjoyed this house. I loved kayaking on the lake with my siblings. My mom saw a chipmunk that she absolutely loved and wanted to take home. She might of got scared of the owl once because she didn't know it made a noise. I thought that was really funny. It was also very kind of you to leave us the jam and English muffins, I enjoyed them! At night the stars were crazy and so fun to look at. This house made the end of our vacation super fun and memorable. Thank you so much!
Feb 2022
Welcoming, cozy, and with everything here anyone could want
Ahhhh!!! What a pretty place to unwind. Your home is so welcoming and cozy with everything here anyone could want. As I leave this morning my jaw hurts from all the laugher shared with my sisters. Hopefully the car will be able to haul all our rocks home! There are just so many to choose from. Thank you!
Feb 2022
Beautiful gardens, and feels like a home away from home
We have enjoyed our time at the cottage! After a long day of hiking, my son said "lets go home." The cottage has become just that. Our home away from home. My husband and son have enjoyed the pool table and kayaking! As a florist, I have enjoyed walking through the gardens each day! The cottage's peaceful setting adds to its charm! What a wonderful place to vacation!
Feb 2022
Amazing Time!
We selected Copoer Moose Cottage for our girls golf week getaway as it was centrally located to the courses we played. I can honestly say it was more impressive than I thought it would be. From the spaciousness for the four of us, the cleanliness and quaint cottage setting on the lake, it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. We enjoyed the fire pit a few nights and relaxing by the lake. Thanks for a great stay and will defiantly be booking FVR again!


Sarah, we would love to have you back.  When guests say they want to return, that is the best review possible, so thank you for that.  Copper Moose is the perfect place for a golfing weekend, and being able to come back to the lake and relax and unwind is perfection.  See you soon!
Jul 2021
More than we expected :)
This was probably the cleanest rental we have ever experienced. THANK YOU! It was a darling home equipped with everything we needed. Good location for us to see the Porcupines and also Copper Harbor. We would come again.

Lisa, thank you for this wonderful review!  It means a lot to us that everything was in place for you.  We would love to have you come back!

Was a wonderful house for our family of 5 to stay at. The owners of the house have done a great job on making sure you have everything you could possibly need. 10/10 on attention to detail. We will definitely be back in the future.

Daniel, we love that you appreciated the attention to detail in the cottage, and that you had a good stay. It was our pleasure to host you, and we look forward to your return

The cottage was very comfortable and the view of the lake was delightful.

Steve, nothing beats looking out over water in order to relax.  We are glad that you chose Copper Moose Cottage for your vacation.  We enjoyed hosting you and hope to work with you again!

We had an excellent time. I think its provided but otherwise you must have plenty of mosquito spray for the summer months!

Daryl, knowing that you had an excellent time at Copper Moose Cottage makes us very happy!  Yes, summer bugs can be pesky, but thank goodness for good bug repellents.  We enjoyed hosting you and look forward to doing so again.

Beautiful Home
Better than the pictures. This house was perfect! Beautiful 3 bedroom home, with an amazing flower garden in front and back of house. Huge grassy yard from the kids to play and a wonderful, quiet lake. Neighbors were friendly when I talked to them but they kept to themselves. Very, very clean and had everything we needed for a 4 night stay with teens. LOVED and will definitely come back.

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Leslie, thanks for this great review!   Copper Moose Cottage is a quintessential English turn of the century lakefront cottage with modern amenities.  Enjoy the large windows which lend a panoramic view of the amazing lawn, gardens, and lake. There is a 10 foot L-dock with wood bench to look out over the water.  Heaven.
