About LORI PROPERTY MANAGER

We're a young family with 5 children living a simple life in the Keweenaw Peninsula and enjoying all of its natural beauty.

LORI PROPERTY MANAGER purchased this house in 2005

Why LORI PROPERTY MANAGER chose Houghton

It is a little bit of country close to town.

What makes this house unique

It allows us to enjoy our coffee in the morning sun, barbeques and the boat traffic from the deck, and end our day with a good ole' Copper Country sauna.

Large home - Great view!

  • 5 of 5

This house worked well for our group of ten people. We utilized all four bedrooms and everyone thought their bed was comfortable. Because of the open floor plan, voices carry to the second level and this could be a problem if you need to use the two single beds and the double bed that are in the walk thru space. The deck is a great place to enjoy the fabulous view of the water. Lots of yard space for games and running around. The sauna was a wonderful feature to use in the evening after exploring the area. Lori was easy to work with and answered all our questions in a timely manner. This is a great house to use as your home base if you have a large group and are visiting the Houghton area.

Great space with ample room for lots of people to hang out.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed staying at the house a lot. We had a rainy day with ten or twelve people inside and it didn't feel cramped. We cooked several full meals in the kitchen and that worked well too with lots of different pots and other kitchen items on hand and an extra table to put out for everyone to sit. One consideration, of the two showers, one is in a bedroom so with a big group be prepared to share.

Lovely, beautiful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Rocky Shores is great. The house itself is clean, roomy, open, airy, welcoming. There is a dock from which to swim or fish or park a boat. The dock is even configured in such a way that there is a small 'kiddie pool' - nice and shallow for the little ones. The large lawn is great for frisbee or tag with a fire pit for night time s'mores. Hosts were friendly and accommodating & available for help if needed - we locked ourselves out once. It is a perfect place for gathering, relaxing, reading - vacationing!
