About (HP)

The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge was built under the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1934, when FDR was the president of the United States and the country was going through the great depression.  With it’s history and the character, the Lodge is on both the state and national historical register.

Lodging (HP)

For accommodations, the resort has 24 cabins, with 26 units (several of the cabins have 2 units in them). We have 3-bedroom and 2-bedroom cabins, with several 1-bedroom cabins, situated in the wilderness. The cabins are lined along the first hole and the forest.

Inside the Lodge (HP)

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” ~ Albert Einstein

A mother crane and it’s chick make their way across Hole 9 on the golf course. A young crane leaves the nest within a day after hatching. Both parents feed young at first, but young gradually learn to feed themselves. Age of first flight is about 65-75 days. Young remain with parents for 9-10 months, accompanying them in migration.

Water 💦 A resource that we value and monitor our usage of.

When we water the golf course, we continue to be aware of our usage and are constantly working to be more efficient with how we use this precious resource. It is part of our movement to become an Audubon Society sanctuary golf course.

Mother Nature has been testing use this summer on the golf course. We have had only 2.6 inches of rain since opening the course on June 1st for the 2022 golf season. With this little amount of rain, the golf course maintenance crew has stepped up at the Lodge to do a wonderful job to keep the course in good shape while still managing our water usage.

Regarding our watering source when it doesn’t rain, we get water from two sources: an 88 foot well on property and Lake Superior (piped 1.5 miles up the hill to the Lodge from the big lake).

Outreach is part of having an @idadarksky designation for the @keweenawdarksky park. One of the ways we promote dark sky awareness is through our educational classes. Since June 2021 The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge has offered a Night Sky Photo Work Shop every month. These classes discuss the equipment needed, camera settings, and the best locations for viewing.

To learn more about these workshops please visit the Events and Education section of our website.

The Overflow Trail has reopened! This iconic downhill trail originally opened in 2013 after the Copper Harbor Trails Club was chosen for a $100,000 @bellhelmets_bike Built Grant.

This summer the trail has been reworked with bigger berms, more dirt jumps and technical rock gardens. And yes, the Gap Jump and Manpants are still there and with improvements.

This project was a community effort. The Copper Harbor Trails Club (CHTC), the @keweenawmtnlodge, Grant Township, @rocksolidtrails and the Manders family worked together to get this done. A big thank you to all the businesses, families and individuals that support these projects through their time, volunteerism and money.

Let’s Ride!

The sun breaks through the clouds during the early evening yesterday. The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge is a wilderness resort at the top of the Keweenaw.

As the rest of the country is engulfed in a heat wave the Keweenaw Peninsula has remained relatively cool. Today’s high temperature was 67.5 degrees.

To learn more about the weather on the tip of the Keweenaw please see our weather page on our website:

Yesterday, @bay_electricinc installed and turned on a Rivian Waypoint electric vehicle charger at the Lodge. It is exciting to have an EV charger at the top of the Keweenaw to support our initiatives of being environmentally conscious and being a quiet stay resort.

We have worked with @rivianofficial the past year to put this charger in place (and to put a charger in Calumet). We are excited to partner with Rivian on this initiative, as our values and vision of focusing on wilderness and the environment fit both of our organizations.

In addition, EGLE and NextEnergy have been supportive in making this a reality.

Learn more about this project, and other projects we are working at the Lodge, by visiting our website.
