Springtime at the Lodge – May/June Updates

Spring usually makes a late appearance in our neck of the woods and this year was no exception, but now that things are turning green, things are the Lodge are picking up! We were thrilled with the turnout and the feedback we received after our Mother’s Day Brunch event on May 12th; we are incredibly grateful to all of our guests, Protea Floral Design, and Keweenaw Coffee Works for making the event a vibrant, successful occasion. If you weren’t able to join us for the brunch, fear not, we have heaps of fun, joy, and adventure planned for this year. Here’s what you have to look forward to for the rest of May and the month of June.


Now that the snow seems to be behind us (knock on wood), our greens crew is working to prepare our golf course for the season. Though carts will not be allowed right away, the golf course is slated to open on May 22nd, with a Memorial Day golf event scheduled for this weekend. In June, we will be hosting The Zik Memorial Tournament on the last weekend of the month; stay tuned for more details on that. The KML Golf League is planning to start up in June, with May 30th being the last day to sign up.  please contact the Lodge for more information on our 2019 golf season!

Memorial Day weekend will see Copper Harbor play host to Experience the Keweenaw, a yearly weekend event that celebrates the end of the long (like, REALLY long) winter and encourages folks to get outside. The Lodge will be open all weekend, but the lion’s share of Copper Harbor based events are happening on Sunday, May 26th. After you’ve had your fill of hiking, biking, and yoga in the park, come on up for a hard-earned drink and a meal!

We have some exciting specials for lodging in May and June. Our May specials include an Eat, Stay, Play package, as well as a Memorial Day Getaway geared toward families and groups of adventure-seekers looking to maximize their long weekend. On June 1st, we will announce an 85th Anniversary Package, which will feature incredible rates and a taste of everything the Lodge has to offer. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and are signed up for our mailing list so you get the latest on all our packages!

If you are planning a trip for this summer, be sure to book BEFORE our early bird room rates expire on June 1st; after this date, all rooms from July through Labor Day will be booked at our higher summer rates. Visit our booking page or call us at 906-289-4403 to lock in the lowest rates.

For those of you interested in joining us for a meal, we haven’t forgotten you. We advertise our daily and weekly specials on our social media, but you can always learn about what we are serving by popping in to say hi! We have slowly been adding more and more to our limited menu, which will be updated on our website and shared to social media.

Due to very popular demand, we are now serving breakfast! To start, we will offer breakfast service on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 7 am to 11 am. Keep an eye on our menu page to see what’s being served and to keep track of what’s been added.

A Bloody Mary or Chelada is part of a complete breakfast.



In an earlier blog post, we talked about the new mountain biking trails on our property. We are pleased to announce that we anticipate those trails opening for the season on Memorial Day weekend! These trails are a little friendlier for those of us just starting out with mountain biking. Check in with us, or our friends down at Keweenaw Adventure Company and Copper Harbor Trails Club, for all the latest updates on the state of trails in the area.

A little bird told us that Brockway Mountain Drive is now open on BOTH sides, allowing traffic to pass through starting at either the west or east ends. With iconic views and some seriously excellent opportunities for spotting local flora and fauna, Brockway Mountain Drive is a favorite stop for visitors and locals alike. That said, be sure to dress in layers and pack a jacket, things tend to get a bit breezy this time of year.

May and June are excellent months to visit our local waterfalls. The meltwater and rain of our Yooper spring results in impressive flows throughout the Peninsula, so while you are driving up to see what’s new at the Lodge, make sure to follow the waterfall map for some unforgettable photo opps!
