October 2, 2010… Stayed in the Birdhouse room, bright and cheerful! The Keweenaw is one of my fav places on earth God really knew what he was doing when he created this area.   Last Year’s visit here (late Sep) proved disappointing for color, BUT I got to experience what 80ᴼ on the top of Brockway Mountain feels like – WOW – I did not even think that happened in July!!   This year we struck gold regarding fall color absolutely awesome day, we managed to stay in the pocket of sunshine and avoid the ominous squalls of rain that was threatening all of Wi and Mi this week-end.   Had a great time hiking around Estivant Pines south of Copper Harbor.   It was wonderful knowing we had this cozy, homey place to come to at the end of a long day.   Sue Yarney Manitowa Mi.   You did a good job on your website it definitely sold me on this place, thanks. For anyone who has not been across the street for a meal is missing out, we had the “Rib Buffet” they were falling off the bone, delicious, so were the scones at the motel and Jasper  (your cat) was a nice extra, Best wishes for your future in the Keweenaw.

October 3, 2010… We would like to thank you for our spectacular all week-end trip to visit my old roommate from college and to see the beautiful fall colors, Copper Harbor and the scenic views were so beautiful.   Loved Laurium and Calumet , Mohawk and all the towns surrounding it.   It was nice to visit my father’s birthplace of Laurium.
