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.

“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.
