HARBOR VIEW (EAGLE HARBOR on Keweenaw Peninsula): Sleeps 2, with full kitchen and living room

This cottage has a FULL kitchen and a living room area. The best view of the water is from this cozy cottage! 

A message from the owners:

As a child, I spent my summers enjoying the relaxed lifestyle the small community of Eagle Harbor offered. As an adult, I brought  my family up to enjoy the community as often as I could. I am so excited to be able to share a piece of that with others. 
Our 3 cottages were part of the original Lake Breeze Resort in Eagle Harbor. Built in the 1920’s, this resort had 15 cottages that sat on “The Hill” overlooking the harbor. As time went on, some of the cottages were sold, and we now find ourselves lucky enough to own three.

Quaint cozy stay! Fantastic location!
We LOVED the little school house! So much beauty around every bend of the Upper Peninsula. This school house is situated in a great location. Pretty views from the front and a VERY short walk to the lighthouse and scenic overlook. We spent our evenings star gazing! Who knew there were so many stars in the sky!!!! The only complaint is the shower, it sprays out into the floor - maybe a new shower head would solve the problem?! Regardless, we will be back! Such a fantastic getaway for our anniversary!

April, thank you for this enthusiastic review!  We agree, the star gazing in the UP is extraordinary.  Thanks for the feedback on the shower head - we'll get that taken care of.  We look forward to your return!

There is no place in Michigan quite like the Keweenaw. For the last 20+ years this has been where I go to truly get away from it all and recharge. This get away was much needed this year. The host was above and beyond accommodating. The kindness that she displayed will never be forgotten. The Schoolhouse cabin was perfect for two. It has great views of the lake and is very clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend Freshwater Vacation Rentals to all and will be booking again!!

Jennifer, your recommendation means a lot to us.  It is so important to find a place to recharge, especially in the last 2 years.  The Keweenaw area is so gorgeous, especially in fall.  We're glad that we could offer a cottage that fit your needs, and we look forward to your return.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. I only wished it was longer. We liked that everything was within walking distance. The lighthouse, the restaurant and gift shop. The cottage was perfect. Very quiet. We will use your service again.

Glenn, we love hearing that the cottage was perfect, plus it's great to know that the stay was too short!  That pretty much says it all.  We look forward to working with you again.

Nice location
Beautiful location. Walking distance to the lighthouse and Lake Superior. Only draw back is the hot water was hit and miss.


Ruthann, summer on a Great Lake is the best!  We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay.  Thanks for alerting us to the hot water issue.  We'd love to work with you again.

Schoolhouse Cabin in Eagle Harbor, MI.
I have nothing but praise for the rental company and the property. Their response was prompt. The check-in and check-out process was easy and straight forward. The property was as presented and ready for our arrival. I would have no second thoughts or hesitation in renting through this company in the future.

Schooolhouse Cottage
This unit is in a nice location - close to the lighthouse and lighthouse museum. The unit is a nice size, well kept, and comfortable for two people. It appears to be the largest cabin of the site. We would stay there again.

As good as it gets for under $200/night!!!
The mechanical is is perfect shape and nicely decorated with excellence. There is nothing that could be done to make this more comfortable. Clean, no bugs, screens in all four directions and lots of little fans. Hot water, WIFI and every imaginable kitchen gadget.

Timothy, thanks for this great review!  We always love hearing that our guests appreciate Schoolhouse Cottage as much as we do!  We hope to see you again.

A perfect place and location. Kitchen was great to have during our 6 day stay. We had weather from 80 degrees to 40 and rain, good to know we had a warm and dry place to return to

What a lovely place to stay, again!
Our 2017 stay was so pleasing that we repeated this year. Schoolhouse is excellent for two; well-equipped Kitchen with appliances, cooking implements and supplies, 1 minute walk to the Freshwater laundry and trash bins, Queen bed and a small but well organized bathroom. Great housekeeping with everything clean; crisp linens and plenty of towels, etc.


Ray we love our repeat guests!  Thanks for this great review and we'll look for you again next year!

Nice location for exploring the Keeweenaw Peninsula
The Schoolhouse cottage is in a nice location in Eagle Harbor. Steps away from the light house, a view of the harbor and beach out the front window. The Eagle Harbor Inn / Restaurant is a short walk down the street. You are within 30 to 45 minutes from the attractions in the Keeweenaw. The cottage has a living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. It was clean and is nicely furnished.

Philip, we are so happy that Schoolhouse Cottage fit your needs for your vacation.  We love being so close to the lighthouse.  We hope to see you again at one of our properties.

Eagle Harbor - My Happy Place
I absolutely love Eagle Harbor and the Schoolhouse Cottage was a wonderful little cottage to stay in while there. You can't beat the fantastic view from the porch and it's perfect location near the lighthouse. It was clean and had all that you need for a comfortable stay. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. Can't wait to go back!


We love that Eagle Harbor School House Cottage is your happy place!  The lighthouses in MI are so special, and being as close as you are from the School House makes staying there even more memorable.

adorable cottage steps away from the beach and sunset views and a short drive from great sights
This cottage was exactly what we were looking for on a recent trip for just my wife and I. It is a short drive from Copper Harbor, Ft. Wilkins, Brockaway Mountain and more. Each night we walked 300 yards to the viewing platform by the lighthouse to watch the sun set over Lake Superior - awesome! Without a doubt we'd stay here again.


Stephen, aren't lighthouses the best!  Lake Superior has it's own magic, and then you add a lighthouse and a sunset and words cannot describe its magnificence.  We are so glad that you liked the Schoolhouse Cottage, and we'll be even happier to see you again.  Remember that returning guests get a 10% discount.

Everything we wanted and more
The booking was easy. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Attention to detail to make a guests experience comfortable was best. The location was fabulous. It felt like home. Owners were great.


We are really happy that you enjoyed your time at  Eagle Harbor- Schoolhouse Cottage.  It's such a cool place.  When a guest says it felt like home, we know we have succeeded, so thank you for that.  We hope to see you again in the future!

Cozy, Comfortable
Schoolhouse Cottage was a cute little place. Had everything we needed. Quiet, cozy and a great view of Eagle Harbor Bay. There is a very nice restaurant within a couple blocks of the cottage. A word of caution, my OnStar took me to Copper Harbor down some dirt road. Be sure to go to Eagle Harbor as the owners instructions tell you. It is on the west side of the bay.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! We are so happy you had a great time! Lake Superior is such a beautiful view! We hope to see you again in the future!

One week stay in early August 2017
Every bit as good as described and pictured. Exceptionally equipped kitchen. Hope to rent Schoolhouse (or Doc's) next year, perhaps for a longer stay. Caretakers Barb and Alan are super! They care equally for the property and for the guests; very conscientious.

Spontaneity Rewarded!
My mother and I were planning on camping up near Eagle Harbor but were detered by the relentless flies. After some online digging, we came across the Schoolhouse listing and fell in love. It was a perfect spot for Keweenaw adventuring and so close to the Jampot. The accommodations were cute and clean and the customer service was so helpful, even as we arrived after hours. Thanks so much!
