What to Expect

Whether you’re exploring the peninsula’s windswept peaks or its shadowy forests, the historic landmarks or the waters of magnificent Lake Superior, our cabins are outfitted with comfortable essentials and basic amenities to keep you cozy and refuel your wanderlust, day after day.

Arriving at Fresh Coast Cabins

A long, winding drive up US-26 will lead you to Fresh Coast Cabins. Point your GPS to 13051 US M26, Copper Harbor, MI 49950.  The first thing you’ll see is a large modern building with Fresh Coast Cabins on the front. Drive in front of this building to access the cabin loop which is a little further down from the lodge. Here’s the property map for reference.

Groceries/supplies

  • You will find a small but mighty grocery store in Copper Harbor (3 miles east), The Genny.
  • Keweenaw Co-Op (Hancock) approximately 60 minutes before your reach the cabins
  • Pat’s Foods (Calumet and Hancock) approximately 30 minutes before your reach the cabins
  • Econo Foods (Houghton) approximately 60 minutes before your reach the cabins

Check in/out

Your cabin is available after 4pm on the first day of your reservation. Please check out by 11am on the last day of your reservation.

When you booked, you should have received a confirmation email with your reservation dates and cabin access information. If you did not receive this email, check your spam folder, and contact us so we can get you that important information. We recommend printing this email out and bringing it with you as there is no wifi or cell service at the cabins.

How do I find my cabin and where do I park?

The cabin pathway leads from the parking area in front of the lodge—you’ll be able to see the cabins as soon as you pull up. You’re welcome to drive slowly down the path until you see your cabin—each one is clearly marked with its number facing the path. (You can also refer to the map from your reservation confirmation email.) The cabins each have space for one car next to or near the cabin, please contact us before your stay if you need to park extra vehicles. We need to keep the main cabin loop clear for all guests and in case of an emergency.

A lot of our guests like to visit the Fresh Coast lakeshore before they check into their cabin. That’s perfectly fine with us! Get out, stretch your legs, enjoy the view…your cabin will be ready whenever you are.
