This beautiful cottage, once owned by local artist Alice Reynolds, sits on the shore of beautiful Lake Superior.

You will love this 2-bedroom cottage with its newly remodeled interior. This cottage has 1 bathroom with shower and a private outdoor shower. There is a gas grill for your convenience as well as a fully equipped open concept kitchen. 

There are many activities to enjoy around the area such as hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, exploring the area beaches, hunting for agates and Yooperlites.

There are also times that you may want to explore the old copper mines, take a ride up Brockway Mountain, or Copper Harbor... all just a short drive away.

If you choose to stay with us during the late summer, please feel free to pick berries from our Thimbleberry bushes. Yum!

So, tell the office you’re on vacation, come to the UP and enjoy our little slice of heaven.

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!
