About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)
The Eagle River beach house is situated on, arguably, the best sand beach in the Keweenaw, which is surrounded on three sides by Lake Superior and located on the northwestern end of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
The beach, part of the Great Sand Bay, extends up to the house, putting you just steps away from digging your toes in the sand. Here you can walk the beach with your coffee in the morning, go swimming in the afternoon, and enjoy a tasty dinner on the beach, perhaps enhanced by the northern lights which appear frequently. Be sure to look for the nesting pair of eagles just north of the house.
The open layout of the beach house includes three bedrooms, a full bath, a fully-equipped kitchen, and large living room. It features a front deck facing the beach and a back deck with a view of the woods.
Outside you will find a volleyball net, horseshoe pit, and a grill to help your family and friends enjoy the time outdoors – plus enough sand to build any size sand castle imaginable!
There's a beachside restaurant, Fitzgeralds, just a short walk down the beach. They offer lunch and dinner and have a bar. The food is amazing for such a remote location.
We had a well dug last summer, so no more sand point and pump. Plenty of good water now. We also replaced some living room furniture and resealed the waterside deck. We purchased an inflatable bed that's quite comfortable, so I can forsee folks wanting to sleep out on the porch to watch the stars, Northern lights, or listen to the waves.

Copper Harbor is quickly becoming recognized as a Midwest destination for mountain biking by building trails (some elevated) on state land and hills. There are several races and rides scheduled during the season and the cottage is an easy 25 minutes away from all of this.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We're graduates of Michigan Tech who love the Upper Peninsula and found ourselves returning to the area for years. When we found this cottage for sale, it took about 25 minutes to decide to purchase it. The guys open up the cottage every Memorial Day. This always involves some improvement projects and lots of card playing. In the summer, the families come up to enjoy a week on the beach when the cottage isn't rented. Again in the fall, the guys return to shut the cottage down for the winter. Each owner takes different responsibilities for the property and we want others to enjoy it as we have.
Why the Owner Chose Mohawk, MI, USA:
This is the largest expanse of sand beach in the Keweenaw Peninsula and the gradual grade to the lake and the slight bay makes it a superb swimming spot. We've steadily updated the cottage and remodeled the kitchen in 2010. With 4 acres of woods between the main road and the cottage, it feels like a secluded little secret. Yet, within a 15 minute beach walk, we can enjoy fine dining. With the history, topography, and recreational pursuits available in the Keweenaw Peninsula, we're never done exploring.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Morning always starts off with a check of the 'Big Lake they call Gitchugumee', and a decision whether a beach walk with coffee is in order. It's also the time we most often spot bald eagles looking for their own breakfast. Based on how everyone is feeling, we either strike out on an adventure in the area, or set up camp on the beach. Music, swimming, sand castles, pick up games of wiffle ball, volleyball, or football, snacks, some decent beer, naps, catching up on reading, eagle spotting, cocktails, bonfire....it all takes place on the beach.
