  • Winter Carnival/Snowmobile trip

    "Awesome is the best word to describe our stay! We stayed in the large 4BR cabin during MI Tech's winter carnival. The cabin was very clean and in excellent condition. Everything you might need for a week away is at the cabin from linens to towels to even a crockpot in the kitchen! The location can't be beat. There is access to all the best snowmobile trails I've seen right out the back yard. Great skiing is only a 10 minute drive from the cabin and only about 5 minutes from downtown Houghton. If I am ever vacationing in the area again, or have any friends vacationing up there, I would highly recommend staying at Sunrise cabings!"

  • Michigan Tech Family

    "My husband and I stayed at the Log Cabin Inn October 2010 so we could have a "home" while attending Parent Weekend at Tech. Lovely! Comfortable, well equipped - we grilled, we baked and enjoyed time with our son. The trail is right in the back yard. Coming from WA state we were enthralled with the beautiful fall color all around. Close to town, easy drive. We caught a van/taxi at the airport and he took us out there."

  • Great time!

    "Stayed at the house June 10th-13th and had a great time. Everything was exactly as described and it truly was only necessary to bring cloths and food. All other things needed for a nice relaxing get-away was already at the house. There is no mention of the board games, and there are MANY, MANY board games here. The kids played every night (and I suspect into the wee hours of every morning) and never once wanted to turn on the TV. Nice location and I would bring my family back here ANYTIME without hesitation. Plus the owner really made it easy to set the dates and make sure the house was ready, hats off to him and his property care-takers."

Stay Right on the Beach

The beaches of the Keweenaw Peninsula near Houghton are known for their beautiful white sands. You will feel as if you are on the ocean side, without the salt that irritates the skin and stings the eyes. The sand is fine, soft, and deep.

Go out on the nearest dock, or even the private dock that might be located at your vacation home and break out the fishing poles. There is some great fishing at Lake Superior and the surrounding lakes. Fun will be just steps outside your door.
