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 Upper Peninsula

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.

Awesome Family Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to celebrate an MTU Graduation and a couple of Birthdays, one being an 80th. We were surprised also by an Engagement. We had 10 people gathering, and the space was awesome. All were comfortable and we enjoyed the welcoming environment. Access to the Portage was a plus, and even though it was Spring, the owners made certain their dock was installed for our boat. Will definitely return again...

Great Winter Escape

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. You can stay inside and enjoy the incredible view or use it as a base camp for all to do in the Keweenaw - snow shoe, snowmobile, historical tour. Close to everything, but far enough from town to be secluded.

We had a wonderful time staying in the Rocky Shores Retreat! A beautiful site!

  • 5 of 5

All was great-we loved the sauna, the kitchen was well stocked for meal prep and a relaxing atmosphere. Thanks Lori and Phil for keeping the driveway plowed and we had easy access to the local snowmobile trails.

Lovely setting on the Lake/Canal with convenient access to stores.

  • 4 of 5

It was great and just like the listing. Very convenient with lots of space and comforts. I would suggest adding another queen bed upstairs and also reading lamps by the double beds. And perhaps better privacy windows in the middle bathroom/shower. Overall though everything was great! Thanks Lori for accommodating us with the extra twin upstairs.
