Enjoy soaking in the peaceful Keweenaw Peninsula during your stay at Cottage on Pine. Located just 30 miles northeast of Houghton/Hancock, and 20 miles southwest of Copper Harbor. Eagle River is an ideal copper country location from where you can begin your local adventures which can include biking, hiking, lighthouses, intriguing waterfalls, former copper mines and other sightseeing the Lake Superior shorelines.
This classic 2 bedroom/1 bath home is decorated in a contemporary manner where thought was put into each room. The second bedroom has a full size bed as well as a bunk bed that creatively fills the space which was once the closet. Creative use of space rings true here.
This quiet and quaint town is filled with charm and is an ideal location for all your Keweenaw Peninsula excursions. Conveniently located and a scenic drive to Eagle Harbor, Copper Harbor, Calumet, and Houghton. Take a romantic stroll (2 blocks) toward Lake Superior where you will encounter Fitzgerald's Restaurant where you can find real smokehouse barbecue, fine whisky and craft beer.

Right next to The Fitzgerald’s Restaurant is the mouth of Eagle River where families can spend time unplugged with swimming, skipping rocks, bonfires or just small talking with fellow lovers of the Keweenaw.
