About Philip Roberts

Hello, My name is Philip Roberts. My Grandparents purchased this property in 1927 as a residence where they had a small farm and ran the C&H Mining Waterworks which provided city water for Calumet and surrounding area.

Philip Roberts purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Philip Roberts chose Calumet

The Roberts family has enjoyed this beach property for three generations. We built the cottage in 1999 to share this special place with visitors from all corners of the world.

What makes this cottage unique

Running along side of the cottage is a small babbling trout stream that opens up to the lake on the beach. On the beach you can enjoy a camp fire under the stars or even catch the northern lights, swim the Great Lake Superior, hunt the perfect rock or agate, fish till the sun goes down, barbecue on the charcoal grill and picnic at the picnic table, or take a nature walk and enjoy the natural beauty of the beach and forest. In the winter, ski, snowmobile, or snow-shoe right out your front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am having a very hard time tearing myself away from this sanctuary. We have had a great time here, walking the beach, journeying out for little adventures exploring the peninsula, talking with the wonderful people in Calumet and all along our paths - then being able to come "home" to our cozy cabin. The boys Winslow and Bradley, have been in heaven being able to run the beach and do their own ground level exploring. Thank you for welcoming them (they loved the biscuits you left for them) When I come back next year (at least I hope to) this place will be where I want to be.

Nice cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage while visiting my son at Michigan Tech. The drive isn't bad to MTU (about 20 min). The cabin was clean and had everything we needed in it. Thank you for the miscellaneous items in the basket. The coffee packet saved me! We didn't get a chance to use the sauna or do much around the cottage as we were either at MTU or skiing while we were there. Fit our needs perfectly though! Thank you!

It was a great get-away!

  • 5 of 5

I was expecting a rustic cabin. There were lots of nice touches that we greatly appreciated from soaps, coffee pot, microwave, pictures & reading material from the area. Beautiful view of Lake Superior! We will definitely come again.

Christmas visit.

  • 4 of 5

Great place to observe a lake affect snow event off Lake Superior. Bet it's a lovely summer setting.

I would like to publicly thank Philip and his father Gordy for all their help after our accident. It made things go better. Kurt

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cabin for a weekend getaway with my wife and it was great. The cabin is nice and cozy and it was really nice to be able to bring our dog with us. The views of the lake are great and it was nice to take a sauna and warm up after being out enjoying the snow. We will be back in the future!
