This house was amazing!!! The views were spectacular!! We loved watching the waves of Lake Superior outside the window. This location was great!! The house itself was very clean and very well stocked with everything that you would need. The house also had a log book from previous people and it was very helpful. IF you venture beyond this beautiful location the sunset at “ Great Sand Bay” was great!!! Fresh Water Vacation Resnais did NOT disappoint

Keith, we love hearing that you found the house to be amazing!  We agree that the views of Lake Superior are stunning and mesmerizing.  Thank you for your very kind words for FVR.  It really does mean a lot to us.  We hope that you come back again.

Do we have to leave???
Superb cabin! Sublime views! Stellar sunsets! Took away our blues! It was kind of last minute. Yet we’re so glad we caught it! We loved it there so much, we went ahead and bought it! 


No kidding! Hi Siri! This is such an awesome review to come across, and congratulations as the new owner! It truly is such a special home, so we hope you get many great years and endless memories here!

Perfect Eagle Harbor
Loved it here! Quiet, comfortable, including the mattress. Especially impressed with the kitchen, including sharp knives. Sunrises and sunsets are glorious, with waves on the rocks. Looks a little dark and musty in the online pics. NO!! It's lovely and perfectly clean. One of the best places we've stayed.


Hi Elizabeth! We're so delighted to know you enjoyed your stay, and found the home to not only have an impressive selection of amenities and comforts, but also  that the home itself was more appealing and pleasant as a whole, in person! Hopefully we will get a chance to host you again in the future!

Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunrise Cottage, even better this year with the aid of a recliner chair. (I suggested this last year, as it helps me and my miserable back sleep, and the owners provided one. Many thanks for that!) As usual the cottage was perfectly clean and very well stocked with necessities. It is beautifully positioned for day trips around the Keweenaw. And sunsets are wonderful.
Jul 2023
For years We come to Keweenaw each autumn for a week or two and, until now, have not found a place to return to. Now we have. Location on the water is perfect; we enjoyed the range from crashing waves to lapping waves, plus spectacular sunsets. It is also conveniently located for day trips exploring all of Keweenaw. Now, Unlike most rentals, Sunrise Cottage is provisioned abundantly; the kitchen in particular has all the cookery and crockery one could need instead of the frequent sparseness of 4 plates, 4 cups, 4 of each (mismatched) silverware, etc. This is a most comfortable place and we hope to return next autumn.


WOW! What a wonderful review, Karl! We are so thrilled to know that you found the home to be ideal and able to exceed expectations, and provide you with a comfortable stay for you autumn getaway! We truly look forward to getting a chance to have you back!

It seems like everything was thought of to make our stay memorable!
This has been the most amazing weekend! This was our very first trip to the UP. It definitely will NOT be our last! Sunrise Cove is in the perfect location. I don't know that I have ever been more relaxed! Sitting on the deck listening to the waves crash against the rocks was so soothing. We enjoyed getting up early to watch the sunrise right from the deck. We got out on the rocks a bit to watch the sunsets too. Moments like those make you thankful to appreciative of God's beautiful creation. We did one day of site seeing. We stopped at the cafe in Eagle Harbor for ice cream and found out the people behind the counter, running the cafte, were from our hometown! What a small world! We found everyone to be so friendly and kind. Of all the vacation homes we have stayed at I have to say Sunrise Cove has been the best so far! It is stocked so well! Definitely the cleanest and most comfortable place we have been. We checked out the outdoor shower on the warm day! It was very spacious! A nice addition to the home! And on the rainy night we played cards late into the night! It seems like you have thought of everything to make our stay here quite memorable! We will definitely be back.

So many things to love!
We have stayed all over the world at vacation rentals, and this has to be top 5! The view, the tranquility, the quality of the cottage, and the list goes on. It is hard to leave- wish we had booked our entire UP vacation here..

Perfect home base for exploring
Thank you for your comfortable, airy, perfectly situated house. We used it as home base for hiking and rock hunting at Black Creek Nature Sanctuary, Great Sand Bay, and Gratiot County Park. Didn't see any eagles, but lots of ducks, geese, a sandhill crane, and seagulls. Always enjoy being anywhere we can watch light and lake interact

Excellent place to stay. Charming, quiet sunsets #1, great layout, clean and well supplied, one of the best places we have been in. Hope to return in 2023

Where do I start! What a great place to decompress and unplug! Absolutely beautiful! The cabin was so cozy and clean. The kitchen had everything you would possibly need. The deck on the back of the cabin was a great place to be as the sun was rising and setting while listening the water coming ashore. We traveled on our motorcycles with this cabin being 'homebase'. We explored waterfalls, State Parks and enjoyed the excellent roads. Being as we were on motorcycles; we were thinking how great it would have been if a grocery delivery service was available. LOL Thank you for providing this perfect place! 


What a wonderful review Jeff! We are so happy to know you had a great motorcycle trip exploring the UP, and especially grateful to know that you found our Sunrise Cove cottage to be the perfect home base for your adventure! We would love to have you back!

This was by far the best vacation rental we have ever been at. It was stocked better than any other home we have rented. It was so clean and well taken care of. And the location is absolutely amazing!!! We will definitely be back!!

Sunrise Cove Cottage
Lovely, Lovely, cottage! The wonderful location, breathtaking views from the porch, and the abundance of amenities. As they say, "Move in Ready!" We hope we can book more time at the cottage next year! Maureen and Bob

Maureen and Bob, we'd love to have you back again next year!  One simply can not beat sitting on the porch and looking out over Lake Superior.  It does the soul well.

Sunrise Cove in October
We had the pleasure of staying at Sunrise Cove in October, during the peak of Northern Michigan's fall beauty, and we couldn't of enjoyed ourselves more. The drive alone was beautiful, but we absolutely loved walking the rocky shoreline at the cottage and taking in the stunning views! The cottage had everything we could possibly need. The kitchen was extremely well stocked, they even had spices (which was great since we forgot to bring those). We grilled up some steaks on the (provided) outdoor grill and enjoyed our dinner looking out the large dinning room windows watching the sunset and the waves crash on the rocks. We also enjoyed coffee on the deck each morning overlooking Lake Superior. The beds were very comfortable, which is something I'm always worried about when traveling. We also took advantage of the great location and spent some time at Eagle River Falls, hiking the nearby trails, and spent an afternoon driving over Brockway Mountain Pass and exploring the nearby town of Copper Harbor. We also enjoyed a delicious dinner out at Eagle Harbor Inn, that is just a few miles from the cottage. This is a great place to unplug, relax and recharge, yet also offers plenty of outdoor adventure. Overall I would give Sunrise Cove 5 stars! In fact we have already booked another visit!
