Why Philip Roberts chose Calumet
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.

Wonderful 60th Anniversary trip!
We stayed at MacNaughton's Retreat as a 60th anniversary celebration for my parents for 7 days and 6 nights in August. We had 10 people and 3 dogs and were very comfortable. We could all sit together around the large kitchen table, in the large living room, on the deck and patio and even around the firepit by the lake. Philip, our VRBO Superhost, was very responsive and took care of a minor hot water problem as soon as he could and helped us use the electric sauna. There was a nice size yard for the dogs to play. I would describe this location as somewhat secluded although there are 3 other cottage rentals nearby. We used the newer kayaks on a calm day on Lake Superior and had some beautiful bonfires on cloudless, star-filled night skies. It was close enough to Calumet, sightseeing and visiting family in Copper Country. We had very good wi-fi service, but no cell service (we got it easily when we went to Calumet). There were so many things to do, we rarely even turned on the flat screen TV. We would love to stay there again in the future and highly recommend the property and VRBO Superhost, Philip Roberts!

Only negative was the “14” sleeping number, we only found spaces for a dozen. Otherwise, it was a wonderful week!
The property was clean and well stocked. The views are amazing and there was space to accommodate my large family. We enjoyed our stay!
Quiet, spacious, relaxing...
Home was as advertised, and newly redone. Very clean, lots of room and gorgeous location right on shore of Lake Superior. We were there for snowmobiling, and there was plenty of space for my 27'ft trailer. Located 7.1 miles from trail and when roads are covered w/snow, can ride right from house. When not covered, there is option to park and launch feet from the trail. Was at end of dead-end street so very quiet as well. Would recommend.
Beautiful home and surrounding scenery
The property was as described and was well equipped. Beautiful surrounding scenery and host was very responsive.
This house is everything it is marketed to be and more. We absolutely loved our stay, and we will be back.
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.
