About The Owner

I live in the Minneapolis area, but love to go back to Hancock to visit!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Hancock

I purchased the residence in my hometown, in hopes that one day I could move back there!!

What makes this house unique

The house is located on the most desirable waterfront in the Keweenaw Peninsula. It's semi-secluded, with a nice beach, but still located near town.

over all experience

  • 4 of 5

First of all its a nice clean place to stay, very quiet and warm. Felt like home. When we got there the driveway was clear which was nice, but we came with a trailer. It was hard to tell where the drop off was on the retaining wall, so some flags would be a huge plus!! Secondly, there wasn't any salt for the steps and my father fell down them breaking a few spindles; they were interior spindles at that and, were very weak, to begin with. We are very sorry about that but, with a little attention, these issues could have been avoided. Its a rental and renters are not going to be familiar with the conditions there right off the bat, so some consideration for that would be amazing. Again we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house to our friends. The view is amazing!!

Quiet cottage....

  • 4 of 5

All the comforts of home plus the tranquility of a porch swing and sunset. A little challenging when Mother Nature decided to blow winds that took out the power but we stayed safe and cozy.

Great Sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely time at the cottage! Kitchen is well stocked, and has a large fridge. It's very cozy. Swing on the porch was a bonus as was the fire pit & chairs. Great views - bring your paddle board or kayak!

Hancock cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable place to stay. This was our first time renting a home and it worked out well. Having internet access was a definite plus to help guide some of our destination decisions and keep track of the weather. The place is located about 3 miles from Mclain State Park and approximately 10 minutes to either Calumet or Houghton/Hancock. The views are really nice off the porch, particularly the sunsets.

Beautiful Location with Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at this property for a week in the Copper Country during a family wedding that took place in Hancock. We had a great stay and really enjoyed the mornings and evenings sitting on the wonderful porch area overlooking the beautiful Portage Shipping Canal. I spent a bunch of time in the water swimming and watching the boats and jet-skis enjoying the water. The location of this property was awesome as it was exactly 5 miles from town and although on the main canal road, extremely quiet on the lake side. We hosted family and friends one evening and had ample space especially outside. Overall, the house had everything we needed for a enjoyable week. We look forward to staying there again at some point in the future. A great location to enjoy all of the beauty of this slice of heaven in the Upper Peninsula.
