My husband and I try to go to Copper Harbor every October for the fall colors. (We go again in 10 days but who's counting?!?!) We have stayed at different motels there and they were fine but we love the King Copper. We always ask for a room on the waterfront. By far, the best view of the Lake. The people that run the place have always been very friendly and have gone above and beyond other motels to make us feel welcome and be responsive to any questions we've had about the area. (Even the dog and cats are friendly!) The rooms are basic and dated..part of the charm...but always quiet, clean and comfortable. There are chairs and a table facing out by the patio doors towards the Lake which make it a perfect place to sit and watch the freighters go by at night or a storm out over the Lake. Perfect!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The King Copper Motel is the closest lodging to Lake Superior in the Keweenaw Peninsula with the largest, most breathtaking views of the beautiful water. It has been proudly family owned and operated for over 50 years. Each room includes queen or king beds, beverage station, Dish satellite TV, full bath and endless ice. Refrigerators and roll-away beds are available for an additional charge upon request. All pets are welcome with additional charge and asked not to be left alone in the room. There is a sandy beach that is great for taking a dip in the lake, catching fresh lake fish or setting kayaks/canoes out to sea. There is also free boat docking right outside your room. We are open from April-October annually and can be reached day or night. We are also located next to the Isle Royale Ferry dock and parking for your convenience. ... more less
