This hotel is in a great location. It was off season when I went, so the town was quiet. The rooms here are simple and clean with an excellent view of the water. It had a table, television and refrigerator, but no microwave or chest of drawers! ….. The restaurant is located on the bottom floor, so I was concerned...

Beautiful location on the shore of Lake Superior. Room was clean and comfortable, very simple. Listened to a good band and later that evening the Northern Lights came out. You must make reservation for the resturant.

What a beautiful location. RIGHT on Lake Superior (like 15' away). Great deck to sit & have a beverage while enjoying the waves. Simple clean rooms. Bed, wooden table & chairs, TV, fridge. WiFi was sketchy, but hey, you're not there to work ! Relax a little. Good restaurant. Lots of whiskey choices ! No A/C - so i probably...

We kinda of stumbled upon the Fitz a few years ago going to copper harbor. We had a few drinks and took a side of food to go. We fell in love with the view but especially the ambiance. The folks that run it have been all over the world tweaking the direction of their business. But the best part...

Beautiful setting on the shore of Lake Suprior. We were there to visit for a family visit. We celebrated a milestone birthday, my son-in-law's first time on the Keweenaw and soak up tall that this part of Michigan offers. It was a wonderful experience. Calm setting for accommodations and fantastic food at Fitzgerald's Restaurant. Can't wait to return!

Walked into a room that was completely decked out in pine trim, white walls, white curtains, and white bedding. No other color except for that large picture window showcasing beautiful blue Lake Superior. Not a very large room, but honestly it did not matter with the view. Bathroom appeared entirely new/refurbished. Beds were comfortable. Fell asleep comfortably with the window...

We booked 2 rooms in February as an alternative to Copper Harbor en route to a backpacking trip to Isle Royale. I didn't notice the absence of air conditioning in the rooms and was thinking about the (usually) cool Lake Superior breeze. The end of July in the UP this year brought sweltering heat and humidity in the high 80's,...

This is an awesome little inn! We had a fabulous stay and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. We walked on the beach, set on the deck sipping wine while listening to live music and then watched the Aurora Borealis ( Northern Lights) before going to bed. I didn't want to leave and am already wanting to go back! If you go...

The selection was wonderful for food and drinks. The scenery is so beautiful as every table has a view of Lake Superior as if you are right on top of water. The deck is a great place to continue enjoying the scenery with a beverage. Bring a warm jacket in case the wind is blowing from the NW. The day...

We had stayed at the Eagle River Inn a few years ago before the all-white update...wonderful improvements! Earlier this month we were back and we loved the simple, minimalist room right on the water. And of course simply walking upstairs after a fantastic meal at Fitzgerald's was great. Two small suggestions to notch it up: an in-room hairdryer and remove...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Completely gutted and remodeled in early 2012, the Eagle River Inn offers comfortable accommodations to complement an unmatched view of Lake Superior. Gaze at the waves scant feet from your window, or walk undisturbed for miles on sandy beaches. Our attached restaurant and bar serve some of the area's best food, along with one of the finest selections of craft beer and whisky in the UP. Come see what you've been missing! ... more   less
