About Philip Roberts

5th generation Copper Island resident. Long line of copper mining history in my family.

Philip Roberts purchased this house in 1932

Why Philip Roberts chose Upper Peninsula

Grandfather purchased the house, guest house and surrounding properties in 1932. Additional property and neighboring cottages were bought in early to mid 2000's. Only one other neighbor besides the 3 other rental cottages at separate addresses all private from one another. Beach is all private property for miles with no development.

What makes this house unique

Great design and layout! Modern elegant and tasteful while still remaining relaxing and informal.

We really enjoyed our stay the house had everything we needed, loved the view and fireplace. We had over twenty people in the house for a dinner and had plenty of room. Philip stopped to meet us and see that we had everything we needed. Hope to stay there again

Very nice home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This place had all of the amenities we were looking for in a vacation rental. Plenty of room and great views. More than enough room for our group of 5 adults, 2 teens, and our dog. Nice views of Lake Superior during the day and beautiful sunsets every night. As an added treat, we happened to be there several nights where we couldn't keep up with counting the number of shooting stars overhead. The location is perfect. Remote enough to be secluded, yet only minutes away from Calumet conveniences. Philip is a great host and does his best to make sure guests are well-accommodated. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in the Keweenaw.

Home on beautiful part of Lake Superior

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the historical family photos and whimsical items that decorated this home. Also we made buttermilk waffles with the waffle maker. Our first homemade Belgian waffles! This was a lovely area for quiet walks with the dog. A number of other vacationers in the cluster of cabins enjoyed gathering at night around a fire they built on the beach. There was a nice fire ring with chairs on Lake Superior. My parents, in their 80's, enjoyed sitting there in the day. Philip is gracious and available to answer questions.

  • 5 of 5

Great time. We stayed 5 nights and loved it. Owner was great to work with. Very clean. Easy to find, yet secluded enough you didn't have alot of noise. Beautiful views and nice enough beach. Litle rocky, but still a very useable beach. Fully equiped. We way overpacked. You dont need to bring much of anything. Would highly recommend to anyone heading to the upper peninsula. Centrally located betwen houghton and copper harbor.

Incredible Vacation

What a gorgeous place! The house was beautiful, the view was beautiful, and the location was excellent. We would definitely return to the exact same place as I do not think it could get any better!

Can't recommend this place enough

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolutely wonderful time renting this place. Pictures don't do it justice, it's much more spacious than the photos lead me to believe. It sits on a wonderful spot of lake Superior with great rocks and very few other houses. It's also located close to downtown Calumet which makes life easy if you ever had to run to the store. The landlord was excellent and went out of his way to make sure we had everything. Wood is provided for the campfires on lake superior which was an unexpected but very appreciated touch. Will certainly be renting this place again in the future.

Nestled in the wooded shore line of Keweenaw County, this stunning property on Lake Superior is a short 3 miles to historic Calumet. Calumet was once the epicenter of Copper Mining and one of the wealthiest cities in the state. Today it serves as a National Historic Park and a view into yesteryear. This house was built by C&H (Calumet & Hecla) Mining company over 100 years ago. Come relax on the large deck or sandy beach with a speckled shoreline of agates, thompsonite, as well as other Superior treasures. Explore the almost 4 miles of undeveloped beach surrounding the home and the near by nature preserve, Black Creek Nature Preserve. Great for bird watching, northern lights sightings, rock hounding, and well deserved rest & relaxation. Come see why our customers prefer our properties, and keep coming back. To ensure availability of desired dates, we recommend booking 6-9 months prior as we fill up fast.
