Why Kriss Bosley chose Michigan

We've always wanted to have property on Lake Superior and this cottage is just the perfect location.

What makes this cottage unique

Skipping stones on the lake. Roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves. Relaxing by the electric fireplace in the evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the wonderful relaxing time at your cottage. It was so peaceful and the view is gorgeous. I'm a Michigan Tech alumni so I come back to this area at least once a year. I'll definitely be staying here again! I miss this place already...

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Whitecaps cottage for a week in June. It is a lovely, clean, cozy cottage on the bay. The views are gorgeous!! Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We had a very relaxing week, as soon as we arrived we could feel the pressures of everyday life lift away. The cottage almost screams "relax". It is located in the perfect spot, close to many tourist sights, yet far enough away to enjoy the peaceful beauty of the UP. We went to Copper Harbor, Jampot, and Fort Wilkins one day, then spent 2 days discovering the waterfalls nearby. Bond Falls is a must see!! Everything we needed was provided. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of this lovely , affordable cottage if you want a terrific getaway!!

A wonderful retreat on Lake Superior!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and I spent four nights at the Whitecaps Cottage in October. The fall colors had already peaked, but there was still plenty of fall foliage left and we certainly enjoyed our visit to the Upper Peninsula The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and the view of Lake Superior was just fabulous. We cooked all of our breakfasts and all but one of our dinners in the well equipped kitchen. Our one dinner out was in Houghton at the Library Brew Pub--a really good place to eat!. There were plenty of brochures provided by the owners on what to see and do in the area. We drove to Copper Harbor on the Keweenaw Peninsula the first day taking in the sights and did some hiking in the rain. The second day we has sunshine so we drove to the Porcupine Mountains and took a longer hike there. Our third day we went back to Copper Harbor and hiked some more. We had a wonderful lunch at the Keweenaw Lodge. One of our favorite things to do at the cottage was watching the sun rise over Lake Superior while eating our breakfast. The cottage was truly a great location for us to enjoy both the Porcupine Mountains and Keweenaw Peninsula. Thank you so much for sharing Whitecaps Cottage with us,

A Perfect Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Whitecaps cottage is perfect in every way. It is located in a quiet location with a fantastic view of Keweenaw Bay on Lake Superior. It is suitable for those that want some solitude, but also suitable for those that want a base of operations for exploring the surrounding region. The cottage is immaculate, reasonably priced, and the owners are very accommodating. I gave it 5 stars, but it is actually worth 10 stars.

Super vacation - THANK YOU!

  • 5 of 5

It is seldom that I have rented a place sight unseen and not been somewhat disappointed. The camera angles are misleading or the photos have been cropped. In the case of Whitecaps, the description and photos underestimate the place. It is the perfect place to go to be away from life's pressures and demands. It is removed, quiet, peaceful and beautiful. I am returning this summer for the third time. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from busy-ness. Just please don't book during my favorite time!
