The Keweenaw Cordwood Cabin was constructed in 2005-06. It overlooks the Keweenaw Waterway which is about one-half mile wide at this point. The cabin has one bedroom downstairs and a loft above and sleeps a maximum of four persons. A covered deck at the front of the cabin provides a spectacular view of the waterway and the hills along the opposite shore.
A Great Lakes Freighter passes in front of the cabin!
Fall colors are especially dramatic across the water. The private, sandy beach is great for swimming and wading and is only a stone’s throw from the cabin. A dock slip with shore power is available. The town of Houghton has a full range of amenities and is only 5 miles by car or boat.
Michigan Technological University is located in Houghton and enriches the cultural opportunities. Tourist attractions abound nearby. Fishing is excellent in the waterway and deep water fishing is available on Lake Superior. A trout pond is available for use of children. A full range of water sports are available locally.
